Germany says it will investigate Navalny poisoning case, if he agrees


Berlin prosecutors said on Friday they would investigate the case of Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny, who is being treated in Berlin for suspected poisoning, and hand information to Moscow – if he agreed.

The prosecutor’s office in the German capital said it had been commissioned by the regional justice department “to provide legal assistance over the Russian request for legal assistance and to obtain information on the state of health of A. Navalny – subject to his consent”.

“This request will include an application for the possible presence of Russian internal affairs investigators … and a Russian specialist when German colleagues are conducting investigations with Navalny, doctors and experts,” the ministry said in a statement.
