Employee of Scotland Yard, who led the investigation into the poisoning of former FSB agent Alexander Litvinenko, I am sure that during his visit, has also suffered at the hands of poisoners, reports the Daily Mail, citing a documentary film of channel 4.
Inspector Brian Tarpy told reporters that in 2006, when he and his colleague arrived in Russia, was poisoned.
“One night my officer began to complain of stomach cramps and not feeling well. The next morning we parted company with him to the Prosecutor General, where we were offered tea. I will not hesitate to drink, but when we left, also did not feel well. I have no doubt that someone poisoned us with some kind of gastroenteritis,” said Tarpy.
The detective also reported that during the stay of the representatives of the British police in Russia, they conducted surveillance, and their hotel room searched. As a result, detectives allegedly lost the record they have made conversation with one of the main suspects in the Litvinenko case.
State Duma Deputy Andrei Lugovoi, who Scotland Yard suspects in the poisoning of former FSB agent Alexander Litvinenko said that the British detectives actually arrived in Russia 11 years ago.
“They were here in 2006. We have met with them. About the allegations of trying to poison their tea, I can only say that they are either crazy, or had read Conan Doyle,” said Lugovoi.
A former Russian special services officer Alexander Litvinenko, who received political asylum in Britain, died in London on 23 November 2006, according to official figures, from poisoning with radioactive polonium. The circumstances of the death are still under investigation.
In January, the Royal court in London announced the results of public hearings on the “Litvinenko case”. According to the report, the probable perpetrators of the murder of Litvinenko was state Duma Deputy Andrei Lugovoi and businessman Dmitry Kovtun. The document also stated that the approval for the assassination at that time could give the head of the FSB Nikolai Patrushev and President Vladimir Putin.
Mentioned in the report of the Deputy Lugovoi and Kovtun, a businessman denied the accusation in the murder of Litvinenko, calling them absurd and founded on fabricated evidence. In the Kremlin the report of the British side called “quasiresonant”.
