Andrei Lugovoi Will Not Face UK Trial Over Alexander Litvinenko

AS surprises go, this one’s right up there with ‘Jordan sleeps on her back’:

The Russian prosecutor-general has ruled out extraditing former KGB officer Andrei Lugovoi to the UK over the murder of Alexander Litvinenko.

“Extradition is out of the question, because it contradicts our constitution,” Yuri Chayka was quoted by the Itar-Tass news agency as saying…

“Britain has offered us no more than an analysis of its proofs, not the materials of the criminal case.

“If there’s a necessity, we may send a request for additional information, but not for extradition, but for holding a person criminally responsible in the territory of the Russian Federation.”
