Counter-terror police investigate 'unexplained' death

Counter-terror police investigate 'unexplained' death

Man, 26, "murdered pensioner after raping her in her home" Glushkov's body carried "traces of strangulation", according to Russia's Kommersant newspaper.

Kate Fitzsimmons, 87, who has lived on the street for more than 30 years, said Glushkov would occasionally wave and smile to her when he came out of his house, directly across from hers.

A police officer stands at a cordon around the bench where former Russian intelligence agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found after they were poisoned, in Salisbury, Britain March 11, 2018.

Glushkov was a prominent opponent of the Kremlin.

In 2017, during a trial in absentia in Russia, Glushkov was sentenced to eight years in prison for allegedly stealing Dollars 123 million from Aeroflot. He was a director of the Aeroflot state airline and worked closely with Berezovsky in the 1980s and 1990s.

In 1999, he was accused of fraud, embezzlement and money laundering. One friend, who declined to be named, said he had spent months preparing for the case. The airline went on to pursue the case in London and Glushkov was due to attend a hearing on Monday morning at London's Commercial Court but failed to appear. "He was eager to win", the friend said. The friend said she had visited him in December in hospital, soon before he had an operation on his foot, and spoke to him afterwards on the phone.

Glushkov has two adult children, Natasha and Dima, and an ex-wife who lives in Moscow.

"He was in a good mood all the time". "I think it's fairly clear it wasn't an accident or disease".

Glushkov spoke of the unnatural cause of his friend Berezovsky's suicide as Berezovsky was known to have fallen out with Putin.

The Russian embassy said it had sought Mr Glushkov's extradition in 2015 for committing a number of severe financial offences on the territory of Russia, but the British government refused. "There was a history".

The Russian Foreign Ministry, meanwhile, says it has handed the British ambassador a note of protest regarding the accusations, calling them "baseless", "provocative" and "another unscrupulous attempt of the British authorities to discredit Russia". He added: "They have a long memory".

Russian media reported Mr Glushkov was granted political asylum in Britain in 2010. He had a dog and a cat. She added that if there was no "credible response" by the end of yesterday, the United Kingdom would conclude there was an "unlawful use of force" by Russian Federation. "It's not enough", Marina Litvinenko told Reuters in an interview. However, next of kin have been informed. "Whilst we believe we know the identity of the deceased, formal identification is yet to take place", the force said.

Police are treating the death as unexplained and have put counter-terrorism detectives in charge of the case.
