A Tale Of 2 Whistleblowers
[Image: by DougThompson, State Dept.]
It’s suspected that Alexander Perepilichnyy, a Russion whistleblower, was poisoned with soup. The Russian was originally thought to have died of natural causes, but traces of a chemical linked to plant poison were found in his stomach. Some believe that Mr. Perepilichny's death had parallels with the murder of former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko.
Two interesting facts add mystery to Mr. Perepilichny's death:
- Hermitage Capital Management has claimed Mr. Perepilichnyy may have been killed for helping it uncover a $230 million (£150 million) Russian money-laundering operation.
- Shortly before his death, Legal and General issued a substantial life insurance policy to Mr Perepilichnyy.
A full inquest into his death will begin in May.

CA Technologies agreed to pay $45 million to settle the case with the Department of Justice.
