Description [ bare URL] Richard John Charles Tomlinson was born in Hamilton, New Zealand, and raised in the nearby town of Ngāruawāhia. [1] [9] He was the middle child in a family of three brothers. [10] His father came from a Lancashire farming family and he worked for the Ministry of Agriculture, and had met his wife whilst studying agriculture at Newcastle University. [11] The family moved to the village of Armathwaite [12] in Cumbria, England, in 1968. [10] The young Tomlinson won a scholarship for the independent Barnard Castle School in County Durham, where he was a contemporary of Rory Underwood and Rob Andrew, who went on to become England rugby internationals. [13] He excelled at mathematics and physics, and won a scholarship to Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, in 1981. [11] The commission also dismissed Everton's claim that interest incurred in relation to the stadium development could have been capitalised after planning permission had been obtained as being "based on a false premise", adding Everton had been "less than frank" over the issue. Tomlinson worked in the "SOV/OPS" department, operating during the ending phases of the Cold War against the Soviet Union. [18] He was posted to a diplomatic role in Moscow, and was one of the agents responsible for the retrieval of the Mitrokhin Archive in 1992. [18] From March 1992 until September 1993, he worked in the Eastern European Controllerate of MI6 under the staff designation of UKA/7. [19] [20] Whilst working there, it was discovered that the Conservative Party had been receiving donations from Serbian supporters. [20] In November 1993, he joined the Balkans Controllerate, and was posted to Sarajevo for six months as the MI6 representative in Bosnia during the breakup of the former Yugoslavia. [1] There he was a "targeting officer", with a mission to identify potential informants and gather intelligence. [20] A soldier who escorted Tomlinson to Bosnia described him as a "liability", a "sulk" and "totally unprofessional", although Tomlinson has disputed this. [21] A former KGB veteran emphasised that his ex-colleagues knew nothing of the Tomlinson book and that the government press ministry which has to licence Russian publishers was also in the dark about Narodny Variant and Mr Korovin.

The Premier League referred Everton to an independent commission in March but did not reveal the specifics of the club's alleged breach.

BBC Sport's Simon Stone said: "The verdict immediately raised questions from some Everton fans about how their club's case has been heard but Manchester City's awaits a hearing, even though the Premier League champions were charged before the Merseysiders. Phillips said he was "satisfied that the applicant clubs have potential claims for compensation" - but noted the commission holds no "inherent jurisdiction" and it is instead "the role of the Premier League to bring and prosecute complaints". What was Everton's defence - six 'mitigating' factors A Russian military analyst who Tomlinson said he tried to recruit as an MI6 spy confirmed the existence of Truefax to The Guardian yesterday, disclosing that he had done some work for the phony news agency. What is new are accounts of MI6 operations which the agency says are damaging, though names of officers and agents have been changed. Tomlinson writes: "In the end we decided that F was simply playing with us, possibly with the participation of the Russian secret service."

At the Coroner's Inquest into the death of the Princess, on 13 February 2008, speaking by video-link from France, Tomlinson conceded that, after the interval of 16 or 17 years, he "could not remember specifically" whether the document he had seen during 1992 had in fact proposed the use of a strobe light to cause a traffic accident as a means of assassinating Milošević, although use of lights for this purpose had been covered in his MI6 training. [52] On being told that no MI6 file on Henri Paul had been found, Tomlinson said that it "would be absurd after 17 years to say I can positively disagree with it, but... I do not think the fact that they did not manage to find a file rules out anything either". [52] He said he believed MI6 had an informant at the Paris Ritz but he could not be certain that this person was necessarily Henri Paul. [52] Post-MI6 activities [ edit ] The killing of their 'own' inside criminal by the name of Collin Chuke, after he became 'redundant' and a threat to the 'plan'. To prove they weren't bluffing, Conti published 11,000 records on the dark web, which according to the Russian cybercriminals, represents just 1% of the total records that were stolen. To understand how exactly all these crises intersected, let’s take a look at how the events unfolded. When did the Equifax breach happen? a b c d Du Chateau, Carroll (31 May 2000). "Outcast: the spy who wants to spill the beans". The New Zealand Herald.Tomlinson then attempted to assist Mohamed al-Fayed in his privately funded investigation into the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, and al-Fayed's son Dodi. Tomlinson claimed that MI6 had considered assassinating Slobodan Milošević, the president of Serbia, by staging a car crash using a powerful strobe light to blind the driver. He suggested that Diana and Dodi might have been killed by MI6 in the same way. Sir Richard Dearlove, head of MI6 at the time, admitted that plans of that nature had been drafted regarding a different Eastern European official, but that the proposal had been swiftly rejected by management. [6] The courts allowed the Sunday Times to publish Tomlinson's work, saying that to suppress material widely available to the general public would make the courts look ridiculous. If Russian foreign intelligence, the SVR, was behind Mr Korovin, Narodny Variant and The Big Breach, Russian media postulated, they could be seeking revenge on MI6 for the Mitrokhin revelations. Now that the book is out, it cannot be right for MI6 to continue its campaign against Richard Tomlinson. Far better it should put in place the reforms which will ensure such a debacle never takes place again. No modern democracy can allow a secret organisation spending hundreds of millions of pounds every year to exist free from oversight and oblivious to its public responsibilities.
