'Stuff of James Bond'

Британские газеты о первом дне публичных слушаний по делу Александра Литвиненко

 

The Telegraph says the inquiry was told that thousands of lives were put at risk in an "act of nuclear terrorism" on the streets of London to murder Mr Litvinenko.

In an editorial, the Telegraph says of Vladimir Putin: "The inquiry into the grisly death of Alexander Litvinenko in London eight years ago is a deeply human reminder, if one were needed, of why the West cannot trust the Russian leader accused of ordering the assassination.

"The opening day heard an almost incredible tale of how Russian secret service agents deposited traces of the deadly radioactive substance polonium-210 around our capital as they sought an opportunity to poison their one-time colleague."

The Guardian says that in scathing terms, Ben Emmerson QC, acting for Mr Litvinenko's widow, Marina, suggested that Mr Litvinenko was the victim of a dysfunctional state in which criminals and politicians had merged.

The Independent, which pictures Mrs Litvinenko leaving the High Court after the opening of the inquiry on its front page, said the nuclear terrorism claim was made against Mr Putin in an incendiary start to the inquiry.

Looking at the background to the case, the Independent says: "It is the stuff of James Bond, 007: poisoned by a deadly radioactive isotope administered through a genteel cup of tea.

"Except the victim's painful death - as the radiation travelled through his blood, coming to rest in his kidneys, liver, spleen, even his bone marrow, where it destroyed internal organs and sabotaged his body's immune system - is too brutal for Hollywood."
