Alexander Lugovoi said Tuesday that he would no longer cooperate with the inquest because political pressure and state secrecy in Britain were preventing him from getting a fair trial.

In Britain, inquests are held to determine the facts whenever someone dies violently, unexpectedly or in disputed circumstances, though they do not apportion blame.
But in Litvinenko's case every detail of the inquiry is being scrutinized for clues to the alleged involvement of Russia's secret services.

Brandishing what he said was a classified British police report into Litvinenko's death, Lugovoi said that the accusations against him were "nonsense" and that Scotland Yard was ignoring alternative theories of the crime in order to smear the Kremlin.

I agree. I thought this inquest was supposed to investigate other possible suspects? As well as the involvement of British secret services?
