LONDON, December 19. /ITAR-TASS/. During the preliminary “Litvinenko case” hearing held Thursday, Her Majesty’s Assistant Coroner, Sir Robert Owen refused to look into the theory that Russia was involved in the death of Alexander Litvineko, who passed away in London in 2006.
The judge said that he cannot examine evidence regarding Litvinenko’s cooperation with UK intelligence services. The British government has successfully requested the court to rule that this information remains confidential
The Assistant Coroner said that he has made the decision that the theory that Russian state had any responsibility for the death is "withdrawn from the scope of the inquest".
