Burdon of Proof Reversed by KeldBach Burdon of Proof Reversed by KeldBach
Not an exact quote by Theresa May, but essentially the conclusion she made at the British Parliament today during the hearing on the alleged Russian poisoning of a former British spy and his daughter.

Guilty until proven innocent has now become the rule of law in Great Britain. Congratulations!

I wonder why British prime minister pays attention to such trival matters while Mother Russia forced UK to vote for Brexit.

Only Russia developed the weapons grade nerve agent that was used, and the building in which it was manufactured is in Moscow. These chemicals have fingerprints, and can be traced.

When you accuse somebody of a crime, it's your duty to provide credible evidence. That's a basic legal principle in all western countries. Scotland Yard has said the investigation may take several weeks, so there's plenty of room for conspiracy theories. The only thing we know so far is that the nerve agent was first developed in the USSR some 30+ years ago. The receipt is quite simple and has been publicly known for a long time, so the crime could have been committed by anyone who wanted to point a finger at Russia.

On the other hand, if the production of the nerve agent can be traced back to Russia, the UK has a good case and should bring it to the ICC in the Hague. So, let's wait and see what the investigation reveals before we jump to premature conclusions.

The ICC was mentioned in the news last night. When you consider the various deaths/murders of Russians in the UK over the past 20yrs, all from poisoning including Polonium en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poisonin… and Ricin. Three other Russians have died in the UK, cause of death 'Unknown'

Yes, I remember the Litvinenko case and many other murky cases involving various intelligence agencies. The problem is that it's very hard to produce solid evidence as to who did actually commit the crime and with what motive. The CIA, MI5, MI6, KGB, Mossad, etc all have a long history of assassinating people for whatever reason, so I really think Theresa May shot herself in the foot by making Russia the culprit before the investigation has been completed. There's an interesting discussion with two former British intelligence officers here: Publicity Murder?

Btw, wouldn't it be kind of funny if England won the World Cup in Football this summer and the British MPs and Royals couldn't go to Moscow and celebrate due to the sanctions imposed?

I don't understand why you wouldn't have to provide proof, I haven't actually looked into this only seen mentions of this.
