On the handing over of evidence to Pakistan

New Delhi
January 5, 2009

The Foreign Secretary has handed over this morning to the Pakistan High Commissioner in New Delhi material linking the Mumbai attack of 26 – 29 November, 2008 to elements in Pakistan. Our High Commissioner in Islamabad is doing the same with the Pakistan Foreign Office. This material includes:

• Material from the interrogation of Mohammed Ajmal Kasab, the Pakistani national who is in police custody.
• Details of the terrorists’ communication links with elements in Pakistan during the Mumbai attack.
• Recovered weapons and equipment and other articles.
• Data retrieved from recovered GPS and satellite phones.

This material is linked to elements in Pakistan. It is our expectation that the Government of Pakistan will promptly undertake further investigations in Pakistan and share the results with us so as to bring the perpetrators to justice. We would also hope that Pakistan will implement her bilateral, multilateral and international obligations to prevent terrorism in any manner from territory under her control.
