Litvinenko house: what the lawyers say

Went back this morning to get further clarification of what the lawyers for the directors of the company that owns the Litvinenko house are actually after – and their view on whether the funding will be forthcoming.

My take on what I have been told is that the lawyers offered to talk to Haringey in February. Nothing followed. They don’t know on what basis Haringey applied the Emergency Prohibition Notice. So they want the evidence – I guess because in the end if they are going to pay they want to know what they are paying for. They want to know that the extent of radiation or contamination so that they can make an assessment presumably of the costs.

So – Haringey really needs to respond to the lawyers with what they are asking for – but meanwhile – as stated before Haringey has the responsibility for this and needs to get their act together.

  2. As we are all discussing Litvinenko house: what the lawyers say | Lynne Featherstone, The law is not some abstract notion that can and will protect us when we will need to rely on it. The law is an integral component of democratic life, and some thing which regulates our conduct, and in essence allows us to act according to our very own desires within reason. Some could believe the law is too restrictive in particular areas, but it functions. The law serves its function as regulating our behaviour very well, and if it does not? We can alter it.
