State Duma Deputy Andrei Lugovoi, the former KGB officer accused by the British authorities in the fatal poisoning of another ex-KGB man, Alexander Litvinenko, has passed a polygraph test administered in Moscow by British experts.
“The British specialists were in Moscow and I worked with them for several hours, after which they concluded that I was not guilty,” Lugovoi said on Wednesday.
British prosecutors have sought the extradition of Lugovoi over the murder of former KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko, who moved to London and died in a London hospital in 2006 after being poisoned with radioactive polonium-210.
Lugovoi invited journalists to examine a copy of the test documents.
The document reads that the company UK Lie Test held a test on a polygraph on April 24 in Moscow's Radission Hotel. The aim of the test was to establish the truth of Lugovoi's claim he was not involved in the death of Alexander Litvinenko. The test was carried out by leading British experts. Lugovoi answered in the negative to three main questions: if he had done anything that could result Lugovoi’s death, if he had been involved in his death and if he had ever dealt with polonium. The experts' verdict: Lugovoi is telling the truth.
The test was organized and filmed by Russian-British television company Russian Hour. The company plans to make a film and show it in Russia, Britain, the U.S. and other countries.
