Report: Poisoned spy visited Israel with oil dossier

The Times reports Alexander Litvinenko traveled to Israel just
weeks before he died to hand over evidence to Russian billionaire
of how agents working for Putin dealt with his enemies running
Yukos oil company,7340,L-3332980,00.html

The Times reported on Monday that a dossier drawn up on the
Kremlin's takeover of the world's richest energy giant will be
given to Scotland Yard as police investigate the former KGB spy's
secret dealings with some of Russia's richest men.

On Sunday it was revealed that Mr Litvinenko traveled to Israel
just weeks before he died to hand over evidence to a Russian
billionaire of how agents working for President Vladimir Putin
dealt with his enemies running the Yukos oil company, the report

According to The Times, he passed this information to Leonid
Nevzlin, the former second-in-command of Yukos, who fled to Tel
Aviv in fear for his life after the Kremlin seized and then sold
off the USD 40 billion company.

Nevzlin told The Times that it was his "duty" to pass on the
file. "Alexander had information on crimes committed with the
Russian Government's direct participation," he was quoted by The
Times as saying.

"He only recently gave me and my attorneys documents that shed
light on the most significant aspects of the Yukos affair."

Investigators have told The Times that Mr Litvinenko had
apparently uncovered "startling" new material about the Yukos
affair and what happened to those opposing the forced break-up of
the company.

The report said several figures linked with Yukos are reported to
have disappeared or died in mysterious circumstances while its
head, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, and others have been jailed.

The Times said that originally it was Mr Litvinenko's vocal
opposition to President Putin's rule that led to accusations of
Russia's secret service involvement in his death, but police are
investigating whether he made enemies through his links with a
number of oligarchs.

Friends of the former spy have claimed that on his deathbed
Litvinenko named a number of men linked to the Kremlin who he
claimed were targeting him.
