At the court hearing held on December 13, legal review has revealed that Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko, who was poisoned to his death, was working for MI6 alongside Spanish spies before he died.
Although not openly accusing the Russian state, the British implied Russia’s involvement and individuals have been accused of the murder. Moscow have previously denied the allegations and refused to extradite main suspect, Mr Lugovoi to the UK for questioning.
Russian spy Litvinenko died in November 2006 weeks after he was poisoned with radioactive polonium-210 isotope at the Millennium Hotel in central London. It was revealed that days leading to his death, Litvinenko was scheduled to go to Spain with Lugovoi to help Spanish prosecutors about issues related to Russian mafia.
Lawyer for Litvinenko’s widow Marina requested an inquiry to prove whether MI6 failed to protect Litvinenko against “real and immediate risk to life.” Marina has confirmed that his husband was working for British and Spanish intelligence at the time of death. Both services sent payment to a joint account that the couple shared.
