Rowley, who lost his girlfriend Dawn Sturgess and has been in a coma for two weeks, has hired top injury lawyer Patrick Maguire, who represented the victims of the terrorist attacks on London Bridge and Westminster in 2017.
“This has affected my life in a huge way. I want justice,” Novichok victim stresses.
Rowley's girlfriend died July 8 last year, a week after he unwittingly gave her a bottle disguised as Premier Jour perfume found in a charity basket.
Rowley miraculously survived after 10 days in a coma, and then suffered apoplexy and meningitis.
“Dawn and Charlie were both innocent victims caught in the crossfire of the Salisbury poisonings which rocked the whole community. Charlie continues to suffer serious side effects from the toxin he ingested but says his greatest concern is uncovering the truth about what really happened. There are still so many unanswered questions and that is why he has instructed us, to help him get those answers," the lawyer adds.
Two Russian agents have been charged with attempted murder. The attack was said to be a bungled attempt to kill Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal, who was living in Salisbury, and his daughter Yulia.
But President Vladimir Putin’s government denies involvement and refuses to hand over the suspects.
