Murray v Usmanov Round 2?

Craig Murray whose website was taken offline after accusations of defamation and legal threats against his web hosting service, found a new online home which was due to get launched on Monday, 1 October. Then the server where the site was to relocate got firebombed on Sunday, 30 September. Bear in mind that the linked report is from the folk with the web server that was attacked and they are clearly unhappy at events, whatever the source of the attack.

So far Usmanov is declining to sue Murray directly for defamation. Usmanov's lawyers say Murray's accusations are "false, indefensible and grossly defamatory" but the billionaire doesn't want to give the former diplomat a public platform to repeat those accusations.
