Scotland Yard publishes picture of Skripal’s car
The police ask residents of Salisbury to report if they have seen this car on the city streets.
British law enforcers have published a picture of former GRU Colonel Sergei Skripal’s car asking the Salisbury residents to tell if they have seen this car on March 4.
The photo shows a burgundy BMW 320D with registration number HD09 WAO. According to the police message, the investigators are currently trying to establish the route of Skripal and his daughter Yulia on the day of poisoning. In particular, it is not known where the car was from the morning and till 1:30 PM on March 4, that is, before the victims headed for the city center. The following details have been established – the daughter of Skripal arrived in Heathrow from Russia on March 3 at 2:40 PM; the following day, on March 4 at 9:15 AM, the car moves to the center of the city.
The next point was the parking lot, from which Sergei and Yulia headed to the Bishops Mill pub in Salisbury center, after which they went to the pizzeria Zizzi. An hour later they left the place, and 40 minutes later, the emergency services received a message that Sergei and Yulia were lying unconscious on a bench near the pizzeria.
The police stressed that the case of former GRU colonel poisoning is ‘extremely difficult’; at present, about 250 specialists in combating terrorism are involved in the investigation.
To recall, British Prime Minister Teresa May said that London considers Russia to be involved in the incident, since it was established that Skripal and his daughter were poisoned by Novichok gas, which was created back in the USSR.
