Will Galloway now produce ‘Not the Killing of Alexander Litvinenko’?

George Galloway Dismisses Putin Links To Alexander Litvinenko Murder And Accuses BBC Of Holding ‘Show Trial’.

Reports the Huffington Post.

George Galloway has rejected a public inquiry’s conclusion that Vladimir Putin was “probably” involved in the murder of ex-Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko – claiming the process was “riddled with imperfection” and accusing the BBC’s Newsnight of conducting a “show trial”.

The former MP, who is standing to be London mayor for the Respect Party, defended the Russian President for “trying to restore a lot of the lost prestige” in the country and being “the most popular politician on the planet”.

The ex-Labour politician also likened Sir Robert Owen’s inquiry – which found Russians Andrei Lugovoi and Dmitry Kovtun to have deliberately poisoned the 43-year-old in London in 2006 by putting the radioactive substance polonium-210 into his drink at a hotel – to the inquest into the death of Iraq weapons inspector, Dr David Kelly, which has been blighted by cover-up theories.

As part of an attempt to pour scorn on the findings of the Public Inquiry Galloway has since tweeted this.

And re-tweeted this distasteful material.

Will Galloway  consider”crowd funding” a documentary which will expose the real reasons for these claims about Putin?

In the meantime we have this to look forward to:

  2. Charlotte: Read the report. Owen makes clear the ‘secret’ stuff just reinforced decision based on what was in open court.

    Delauney is a renowned anti-Semite on Twitter and not the first Galloway has retweeted.

    This is who Galloway works for:

  3. Thanks for that Paul.

    If I don’t exactly trust the British security services, I trust the Foreign Intelligence Service of the Russian Federation (Russian: Слу́жба вне́шней разве́дк) a lot less.
