This much is certain: Ashraf Marwan, a man some describe as the 20th century’s greatest spy, was alive when he tumbled from the fifth-floor balcony of his £4.4m London flat. The Egyptian businessman landed, shortly after 1.30pm on 27 June 2007, in the private rose garden at number 24 Carlton House Terrace, a street whose former occupants include three prime ministers (Palmerston, Earl Grey and Gladstone) and which lies a few hundred metres from Piccadilly Circus.

Did Marwan jump or was he pushed? The postmortem examination found traces of antidepressants in Dr Marwan’s blood. A report from his doctor said that he had been “under considerable stress of late”, and had lost 10kg in two months. But there are reasons to believe suicide was unlikely. There was no note. Marwan was due to fly to the US that evening for a meeting with his lawyer. He had just been accepted into the Reform Club, whose members include Prince Charles and former MI5 boss Dame Stella Rimington.



www.msn.com...

While the title is perhaps a little misleading the story nonetheless is an interesting one
I find it intriguing for two reasons, one, I had never even heard of this guy Ashraf Marwan and two I dont remember ever reading such a long and detailed account of anything in MSN news
I wonder why the details are released now and in such a detailed fashion
I find it interesting that someone wants to get this information out there in what is normally a light entertainment news media in my opinion
Anyway, fellow ATS ers I thought some of you may enjoy the read and the intrigue

Reminds me of Edward Blake ("Watchmen"). Thrown out of his appartement, too.

He knew too much, and they decided he was unable to be kept on a leash for one reason or another.... Maybe they found out he was on those antidepressants and decided he was too unstable to be fully trusted. Like the mafia used to say, accord8ng to the documentary film, Casino, "why take a chance?"

That's right. They hire international hitmen to do the "suiciding" so that people like you won't think they gave the order....
