Litvinenko Inquiry

On Sunday I mentioned the case of Alexander Litvinenko, the former KGB officer who became a British citizen and was murdered with radioactive polonium (CLICK). His widow, Marina Litvinenko, has been campaigning for an inquiry into his death. Chief suspect Andrei Lugovoi, another ex-KGB agent, has since been elected to the Russian parliament. The UK government has dragged its heels in order to placate the Kremlin. Today Home Secretary Theresa May announced there will be a public inquiry chaired by senior judge Sir Robert Owen, who was the coroner at Mr Litvinenko's inquest. PM David Cameron has obviously had enough of appeasing Putin. With the world condemning despot Vlad over Malaysia Flight MH17, it's long overdue that the truth came out (CLICK).
