Britain stalls Russian investigation of Litvinenko death: Lugovoy

The Russian Prosecutor General's office has confirmed in a statement that it still hasn't received copies of autopsy reports from Britain. It also states that it has been unable to question 14 people out of a list of 18 presented to British authorities, i

The statement was in response to a recent British request for undisclosed information from Russian authorities in connection with the Litvinenko case.

Meanwhile, the man named by Britain's Crown Prosecution Service as its prime suspect in the case, Andrey Lugovoy, says the murder was organised by powerful forces in Great Britain. He claims this is why British authorities are working to keep Russian investigators from obtaining important information.

Russia's Constitution doesn't allow Andrey Lugovoy to be extradited to face trial in Britain.
