Ahead of the report, witness tells how London’s scientists identified fatal poison
The poisoners of Alexander Litvinenko made one major blunder when they used radioactive polonium to kill the former Russian intelligence agent. They chose to carry out their crime in London, the one city in the world with the doctors and medical infrastructure to reveal the cause of his death.
This is the stark view of Norman Dombey, emeritus professor of theoretical physics at the University of Sussex. “Almost anywhere else on Earth, Litvinenko’s death would have been merely suspicious and its cause would have remained unknown,” he said.
