A witness in the case of Boris Berezovsky, Vladimir Terlyuk, who has lived in the UK since 1999, said that he fears for his safety.
The telegram channel of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation published Terlyuk’s appeal to the head of the department, Yuri Chaika.
“Against the backdrop of the events of the last months of this year (the poisoning of Skripal, the murder of Glushkov) I am concerned for the safety and life of my family,” he said.
He said the British law enforcement bodies have asked him to explain a position concerning possible cooperation with the Russian state Office of the Public Prosecutor.
“No one remembered Terlyuk for more than ten years. It can not be ruled out that perhaps, there was even a choice made between him or Skripal “, commented the press-secretary of the department Alexander Kurennoy.
Earlier, Terlyuk stated that his audio recording with confessions in preparation for the murder of Berezovsky was falsified. He also accused Berezovsky of organizing the murder of Alexander Litvinenko.
