LONDON, March 17 (Itar-Tass) – The British security service MI6 paid 90,000 pounds (135,000 dollars) for cooperation after he fled to Britain, Litvinenko’s widow testified to the British police, which are investigating the Litvinenko polonium poisoning case in 2006.
“According to testimony provided to Scotland Yard by Marina Litvinenko following her husband’s death, payments from British intelligence began in late 2003 or early 2004 when 18,000 pounds were deposited in the couple’s bank account,” The Sunday Times cited her as saying.
Marina Litvinenko gave this testimony seven years ago, but it was made public for the first time only now.
The newspaper reported that Alexander Litvinenko was also paid for cooperation with the Spanish security services.
The London coroner’s court will begin the main court proceedings of the criminal case over the death of Alexander Litvinenko on October 2, 2013. Presiding Judge Robert Owen declared about this court ruling after the preliminary court session last Thursday.
