    Russian spy poisoning: Police fear graves of relatives BOOBY-TRAPPED



    THEORY: The graves of Sergei Skripal’s wife and son could have been boobytrappedTHE graves of poisoned Russian spy Sergei Skripal’s wife and son could have been boobytrapped.

    By Oliver Pritchard
    10 Mar 2018

    Teams of officers wearing hazard protection suits removed items from a cemetery in Salisbury, Wilts, where the pair are buried. The materials were then taken in a large convoy, which included several Army trucks and police vehicles, to Salisbury District Hospital for analysis. A convoy of military vehicles also rolled into the car park at the hospital to recover a police car.

    One theory police are probing is the possibility that the graves were booby-trapped to poison Mr Skripal, 66, and his 33-year-old daughter Yulia. Mr Skripal’s house and his car have also been cordoned off. A witness who lives near the cemetery said they saw a large blue bag being removed from the site of the graves. The scene was later covered by a forensic tent.

    DEATH: Mr Skripal's son Alexander died in mysterious circumstances in St Petersburg last year. Mr Skripal and Yulia were poisoned with a nerve agent on Sunday. They remain in a critical condition in hospital.

    In total 21 people needed hospital treatment after the attack, including police hero Nick Bailey who tried to help the Russian double agent and his daughter.

    Police said Det Sgt Bailey is conscious but “very anxious” about being exposed to a nerve agent.

    Mr Skripal’s wife, Liudmila, died aged 59 from cancer in 2012. Their son Alexander died aged 43 in mysterious circumstances in St Petersburg last year. There has been speculation that the pair were murdered by Russia after Mr Skripal’s betrayal in selling secrets to MI6. Russia denies any involvement.

    Home Secretary Amber Rudd visited the city yesterday and spoke to first responders. She described the attack as “outrageous” and praised emergency services for their brave actions. Ex Metropolitan Police Commissioner Lord Blair said an investigation should be launched into whether there is a pattern of former British intelligence collaborators dying in the UK.

    No word of the Doctor, nurse or paramedics who allegedly treated the two Russians at the scene.

    I suppose they, being knowledgable about such things, and routinely exposed to so many "extremely lethal nerve poisons" they are immune. Has the hospital been quarantined, have experts from the UK Porton Down Chemical Weapons Centre (where VX nerve agent originated in the 1950s and still being "developed") been called in to rubber stamp the pre-determined truth?



    "A doctor, who was shopping with her husband in the city centre on Sunday, told the BBC she stepped in to help Ms Skripal after she found her slumped on the bench.

    She described her as "slumped in her seat, completely unconscious" and had lost control of her bodily functions.
    Helped by a passing nurse, the hospital registrar got the 33-year-old onto the floor and into the recovery position - opening up her airway.


    The pair, who did not have any visible injuries, were taken to Salisbury District Hospital by paramedics where they are being treated in intensive care.
    The doctor said she "feels fine" but remains concerned that she may have been affected by a nerve gas agent used in the attack."

    Russian spy: What we know so far - BBC News
    Questions in the House, COBRA meetings, hotel bookings cancelled and now:


    "About 180 military personnel have been deployed to Salisbury to help in the investigation into the attempted murder of an ex-Russian spy and his daughter.

    The personnel - from the Army, Royal Marines and RAF - are experts in chemical warfare and decontamination.

    Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia remain in a critical condition after being exposed to a nerve agent.

    Home Secretary Amber Rudd will chair a meeting of the government's emergency committee, Cobra, on Saturday."

    Somebody's stirring this pot a little too much, any Bears been spotted over the North Sea?

    So let me get this straight, some fucker used a nerve agent in public on British soil to try and kill a defector, and you think they're taking it too seriously?

    I'm afraid the fucking imbecile is very strong in you today.

    Are you saying they are not part of:

    A total of 21 people have received medical treatment after falling ill following the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal, police have said.

    As of "today" there is no evidence. However the blame has already been decided and the high and mighty have heaped more ridicule on The LORD and his people.

    Very ignorant manners by those with power who have publicly spoken. Very ignorant behaviour by those who have agreed with the methods adopted for solving a possibly dangerous event.

    Who knows who these 21 are, has anybody been named, any "press" interviews with the victims or their families, any videos on the web illustrating their wounds or any videos of the police pointing at the "mystery" nerve agent, paramedics, hospital staff, does the District Hospital have the resources to treat the 21 or have they been shipped off to Porton Down to be examined/experimented on, by the worlds experts?

    When will the UK come clean, as in Thailand?

    What the fuck ever, but it is not relevant to my point. If you think it justifies using nerve agents in public, you're a dick.

    Why do you personally need to know the details of the 21?

    Do you intend to send them sarcastic emails claiming they faked their illnesses?

    Unfortunately your hero has previous. Lots of previous.

    So it's almost fucking nailed on that it's down to him in my opinion.

    Softly-softly isn’t working. Time to play hard with wealthy Russians living in Britain
    Oliver Bullough
    After the Salisbury poisonings, it’s time to tell Putin’s inner circle that they are no longer welcome here

    South-east England is a favourite playground of rich Russians. They keep their houses here, their children here, they float their companies on our stock exchange and they don’t make a secret of it. You’re not rich in Russia without being friends with Putin – in fact, there is a remarkably close correlation between the two groups – so if May’s government wants to send a message to the Russian president, it could cancel the visas of the members of his inner circle and, perhaps, try out the potency of its new “unexplained wealth orders”, by freezing their property. Then it should dismantle the mechanisms with which they launder their money.

    https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...bury-poisoning


    As I remarked before, the Brits do not mind the rich people wherever they come from (even from Thailand), important they bring their "clean" money:

    The dark side of Britain’s gold rush: how corruption crept into our suburbs

    The Observer
    The super rich flooded into London after 2008. Illicit wealth has followed


    The glut of funds flowing into the UK can be viewed as a sign of confidence in its economy and confirmation that it is one of the most attractive countries in the world in which to live. But, while much of the foreign money inflating property bubbles and private-school fees will have come from legitimate sources, there are grounds to suspect that some has been acquired through the proceeds of corruption.

    Gulnara Karimova – the daughter of the late, former Uzbek dictator Islam Karimov, described in leaked US embassy cables as the “single most hated person” in Uzbekistan – is believed to have owned several flats in Belgravia worth millions of pounds. Karimova, who is alleged to have pocketed hundred of millions in bribes for allowing telecoms firms access to the Uzbek market, has been linked to the properties through a company in the British Virgin Islands.

    James Ibori, a former governor of one of Nigeria’s oil-producing states, was jailed after admitting stealing £160m over eight years, spending some of the stolen money on six houses in London – including a Hampstead mansion – and putting his children through elite private schools.

    The campaign group Global Witness highlights the example of Maxim Bakiyev, the playboy first son of a former president of Kyrgyzstan, who has been convicted in absentia of using his position to steal from the Kyrgyz people. Kyrgyz court decisions implicate Bakiyev in the embezzlement of millions of funds from the Kyrgyz state, illegally privatising public land and selling off state energy firms for a fraction of their value.

    Establishing who is behind these trusts is often impossible. Analysis by Transparency International and Thomson Reuters was unable to identify the real owners of more than half of 44,022 land titles owned by overseas companies. Nine out of 10 of the properties were bought via tax havens. However, the analysis was able to establish that almost 1,000 of the titles were owned by Peps (“politically exposed persons”), powerful individuals identified as having political influence and who constitute the greatest corruption risk, according to Transparency International.

    Much of the money being laundered has come from assets plundered from the former Soviet bloc countries and African states. A wave of privatisations in the 1990s saw the illegal transfer of billions made from the corrupt sale of mining rights, telecoms contracts, gas and oil concessions.

    https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...ty-kleptocrats

    And not speaking about the poor guys fighting each other, Mr. Abramovich and the late Mr. Berezovsky (wondering why his death had not been attributed to Mr. Putin?)
