This time with Mercury...I say start the investigation with the sketchy fellow on the right.
Kasparov.ru: An attempt on the life of Russian human rights lawyer Karinna Moskalenko was made in France. On October 13, the prosecutor in Strasbourg launched an investigation into an attempt to poison Ms. Moskalenko by depositing mercury in her car. Ms. Moskalenko had noticed the deterioration of her health and the health of her husband and children over the past week. She does not know how long she has been driving the car contaminated with mercury.
On October 15, Ms. Moskalenko is scheduled to participate in the preliminary hearings at for the murder case journalist Anna Politkovskaya. She represents the family of the assassinated journalist (you may remember her). Ms. Moskalenko has represented torture victims in Chechnya, relatives of those killed in the 2004 Beslan school siege and survivors of the hostage crisis at Moscow's Nord-Ost theatre in 2002. She has also represented former owner of Russia's YUKOS oil company Mikhail Khodorkovsky and Garry Kasparov, the leader of the anti-Putin opposition in Russia.
