Poison seller tied to suicide forum tracked down by BBC | BBC News

A Ukrainian man selling a poison which is linked to at least 130 UK deaths has been identified by the BBC.

Leonid Zakutenko advertised his services on a website promoting suicide and he told an undercover reporter he sends five parcels a week to the UK.

He has been supplying the same substance as Canadian Kenneth Law, who was arrested last year and is now facing 14 murder charges.

When challenged, Mr Zakutenko denied selling the deadly chemical, which the BBC is choosing not to name.
