Alexander Litvinenko

Asked if the Prime Minister had had any contact with the Russians following reports that Mr. Litvinenko had been poisoned with radioactive thallium, the PMOS said as there was a police investigation going on it would be not wise for him to comment at this stage. Asked if the PMOS thought it was an organised attempt by a foreign government to influence Mr. Litvinenko’s work, the PMOS again repeated it was a matter for the police. Asked if we were waiting for the police investigation into the matter to end before commenting on the issue, PMOS said before anyone would make contact the results of the investigation had to be known. Asked if the Russian government, or the Russian ambassador here, had been in touch to assure the Prime Minister and the Foreign Secretary that the alleged poisoning was nothing to do with them, the PMOS said that he was not aware of any contact but the best place to ask would be the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
