It seems the barman at the Millenium Hotel which was visited by Litvinenko and Lugovoi and Kovtun on November 1st, after the meeting with Scaramella (Po-210 traces) and at Berezovsky’s office (Po-210 traces), has tested positive for a massive dose of Po-210, which is at odds with earlier reporting:
THE barman who served a poisoned cup of tea to Alexander Litvinenko has just five years to live, The Sun can reveal.
Noberto Andrade, 67, was exposed to lethal Polonium 210 when waiting on the ex-KGB man during his meeting with three other former agents.
Noberto, of Brentwood, Essex, served Litvinenko, 43, a pot of green tea at the hotel on November 1.
The assassin is believed to have slipped the Polonium 210 into the pot at the table from a sealed glass capsule.
At first blush this might seem to make sense, but it doesn’t. The tea pot is now clearly filled with tea when contaminated and a cup of tea is poured from it and provided to Litvinenko to drink. The same problems I have been pointing to with regards to the Po-210 levels in the tea pot, tea cup and Litvinenko;s body being wildly different still seem to be evident. And this is not possible. The liquid is the agent connecting all three “vessels” and therefore cannot be of different doses.
This scenario also doesn’t explain the claims last week of the fourth man in the hotel room poisoning Litvinenko with cold tea. Nor does it explain the rest of the Po-210 trail across London, Germany and Moscow. In fact, it seems this story is consistent in the inconsistent reporting. The HPA has not listed anyone with these levels of Po-210 poisoning.
I am more than willing (and would honestly prefer) this all be an assassinartion effort on one man. It would mean Po-210 is not roaming around someplace. But the evidence has to line up forensically. The stories coming out are contradictory and impossible to make sense of. Could Scotland Yard be this confused? Did they leave a tea pot out in the public domain to poison many other people? Did they not have clear testimony on the drinks served and then check all possible containers? >/p>
Something is up. Not sure why all these conflicting stories are breaking now.
