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.
