MOSCOW, December 14 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Investigation Committee intends to involve in a trial over the criminal case in Alexander Litvinenko’s death in London, the Investigation Committee told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“On December 13, the London Coroner Court had a session under the chairmanship of Sr. Robert Owen over the criminal case in Alexander Litvinenko’s death. During the court hearings the Russian Investigation Committee involved in the trial as a party concerned according to the coroner’s rules,” the Investigation Committee noted.
“The Investigation Committee is a federal state body, which has the powers in the Russian criminal legislation. This Russian investigation agency is investigating the death of Alexander Litvinenko,” the Investigation Committee recalled.
“Soon the solicitors and a barrister of the Russian Investigation Committee filed a petition for a procedural status in the British court to conduct a thorough, full and unbiased trial,” the Investigation Committee said.
The former Federal Security Service officer died in London in November 2006. The detectives found that the radioactive polonium poisoning caused his death. However, the details of his death were not made clear and evoke the disputes.
According to the British criminal legislation, the death, which evokes some suspicions, is being tried by the coroner court. The coroner should find whether the death was violent. In case of a non-violent death the case is passed to the regular court for merit proceedings.
