New Britain, CT, June 27, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- "Government Scandal Erupts in British Litvinenko Spy Case" is the name of a new report by William Dunkerley. It has been published by the American University in Moscow.
Alexander Litvinenko is an alleged former Russian spy who died mysteriously in London during 2006. A coroner's inquest is still ongoing, and no finding has been issued on the cause and manner of death.
In Dunkerley's report, he analyzes a letter sent by coroner Sir Robert Owen to the Lord High Chancellor of Great Britain. It was made public on June 21. In that communication, Owen wrote "It is a highly exceptional situation when the victim of what appears to have been a murder is interviewed by police before he dies, and makes a public statement in which he names those whom he suspects of being responsible for his death…"
Did Owen's statement represent the situation accurately? Or did it contain false and misleading information? Dunkerley compares Owen's comments with known facts, and shares his surprising conclusion.
Owen's letter asks the Lord Chancellor to call a halt to the coroner's inquest and appoint Owen as Chair of a new inquiry. Dunkerley examines what might have prompted that unusual request, and whether such a move would likely lead to a public verdict on the cause and manner of death.
Dunkerley is the author of The Phony Litvinenko Murder. It is published by Omnicom Press, and examines the accuracy of media reports about the Litvinenko case. Many of them alleged that Litvinenko was murdered on orders of Russian president Vladimir Putin and that death was a result of radioactive poisoning. Dunkerley alleges, "Those reports were based on fabrications produced by an arch enemy of Putin's and are not fact based."
