The mystery over the death of Dr. David Kelly took a further twist after a former KGB officer said he had evidence that the former weapons expert was assassinated is being studied by the Attorney General.
As I blogged in an earlier post, Dr Kelly was found dead in woods near his Oxfordshire home in July 2003, after the Government exposed him as the source of a BBC report questioning Tony Blair’s case for war in Iraq.
Boris Karpichkov claims to relay information from an ‘MI5 agent’ that Dr Kelly was ‘exterminated’.
Karpichkov says he got to know the ‘agent’, Peter Everett, while working for Everett’s company Group Global Intelligence Services.
Group Global Intelligence Services, now dissolved, hired former MI5 spies for corporate detective work and infiltration.
“Karpichkov says that during one of their meetings, two days after Dr Kelly’s body was found, Mr Everett told him that Dr Kelly had been ‘exterminated’ for his ‘reckless behaviour’.
Mr Karpichkov says Mr Everett suggested he was himself an ‘active field operative’ for MI5, and continues: ‘He told me that it was extremely uncomfortable, inconsistent and unusual for Dr Kelly to slash his arm in the way he did. He would have lost some blood, but it would not have been fatal.
‘He also claimed that it was not a coincidence that Special Branch officers were the ones who first appeared on the scene. They moved Dr Kelly’s body to another location, changed the original position of his corpse and took away incriminating evidence.
‘He added that the scene where Dr Kelly’s body was found was carefully arranged and completely “washed out”, including the destruction of all fingerprints.
‘When I asked who was behind his death, he [ Mr Everett] answered indirectly, saying the “competing firm”, which I took to mean MI6.’
Last week I did piece on Carne Ross’s day giving evidence to the Chilcot inquiry.
Any dissenting opinion that was against the war machine was brutally silenced.
It’s not beyond the realms of possibility that to keep her American master happy, our Government would do what ever it took to crush all expert opinion.
The Akh has never had any faith in drawn out inquiries, especially those that have no real power to execute a verdict of any sort, but what we are seeing is a unravelling of the cover up, lies and propaganda the government used to illegally invade Iraq.
Why not go full circle and demand George W Bush, Dick Cheney & Donald Rumsfeld be bought forward to the Chilcot Inquiry.
“Nay, indeed, if you had your eyes, you might fail of the knowing me: it is a wise father that knows his own child. Well, old man, I will tell you news of your son: give me your blessing: truth will come to light; murder cannot be hid long; a man’s son may, but at the length truth will out.”
Shakespeare – The Merchant of Venice, 1596
Let’s hope “the truth will out” in our lifetime.
