Anti-Putin Russian exile Nikolai Glushkov was found dead at his London home five months ago. British police have continued investigating the murder, but have made no arrests so far. There have been no other substantial updates to the case. Even though Glushkov was no friend of the Russian government, its UK embassy is seizing upon the silence, and demanding answers. It has now gone as far as accusing Britain of “trying to conceal the circumstances” of his death.

Committee Chairman Damian Collins announced Nix’s decision a day before his scheduled appearance but flatly rejected the notion that he should be let off the hook, saying Nix hasn’t been charged with a crime and there are no active legal proceedings against him. “There is therefore no legal reason why Mr. Nix cannot appear,” Collins said in a statement. “The committee is minded to issue a formal summons for him to appear on a named day in the very near future.” Nix gave evidence to the committee in February, but was recalled after former Cambridge Analytica staffer Christopher … [Read more...] about Cambridge Analytica ex-CEO refuses to testify in U.K.
LONDON - Supporters as well as critics of Vice President Leni Robredo converged outside the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) on Friday where Robredo addressed students and academicians, and met members of London's Filipino community. Robredo, who was at LSE to deliver a lecture on the role of politics in economic growth, was denounced by a group outside the LSE building who shouted "lugaw" and "fake VP". Many Filipinos however were also there to show their support. "We are very happy to be here, to support the VP," said Myra De Villa of Dampi Coalition. Asked to comment on the manual recount that started on Monday, Robredo expressed confidence it will affirm her victory. "Walang dapat ipag-alaala. Sigurado kami na walang dayaan na nangyari," she said. (There is no cause for worry. We are certain that no cheating happened.) Robredo meanwhile said she would rather not get into an argument with the people denouncing her. "Through collaboration not through division … [Read more...] about News Robredo meets Pinoys in London, says confident on recount
