Guy at right is called Mario Scaramella (he comes with that lighting effect and a dino buddy.) He was the Italian informant who met Alexander Litvinenko for salmon skin rolls back in early November before the latter fell dead from Polonium-210 radiation poisoning. Well, now Mario's got the dayglo blood and the story of who did what to whom and under the auspices of what shadow op agency attached to what rogue government — just got weirder:

Mr Scaramella is a professor of environmental law who worked for the Italian Parliament's Mitrokhin Commission examining KGB activity in Italy in the late 1990s. He met Litvinenko during his work for the commission and has said that the alleged hit list also included the name of Senator Paolo Guzzanti, the former chair of the investigation.

Little concrete is known of Mr Scaramella. He is believed to be 36 years old and has claimed to work as a security agent for the Italian Government, the CIA and Colombian authorities.

The Italian Foreign Ministry has denied that he is a member of SISMI, the Italian secret service, although his official specialisation in environmental law has led him to some strange and violent places. Two years ago, he survived an alleged assassination attempt in Naples when he was shot at while attending the demolition of an illegal building constructed by a suspected Mafia don.

What this case needs now is an Eskimo pissing thalidomide in Warsaw. Vladimir Putin's If I Did It… due out next year.
