could have been planned on a ship: Pakistani envoy
By Dipankar De Sarkar
London, Jan 30 (IANS) The Mumbai terror attacks of 26/11 were
planned in a Уthird placeФ outside Pakistan and Britain, Pakistani
High Commissioner to Britain Wajid Shamsul Hasan said Friday.
Hasan said Pakistan's official report on the Mumbai attacks
in which over 170 people were killed will be ready Уby Saturday
УI have spoken to the interior ministry to check on Pakistani
newspaper reports that said the attacks were planned in the
UK,Ф Hasan told IANS.
УThey told me there was no evidence of UK involvement. The
attacks were not planned in either Pakistan or the UK.
УHowever, they said it was planned in some other outside place.
It may not necessarily be a country - it could be a ship,Ф
Hasan, who was an adviser to slain former prime minister Benazir
Bhutto, said the report will be ready by Sunday after it is
seen and approved by the president and the prime minister.
Earlier, Hasan told NDTV news channel: "We are not going
to do any whitewashing business. We believe in going after
facts. Our findings will be acceptable to the world. We will
try to satisfy India with our findings. We are addressing
the concerns of the world not just India."
"When you collect material, then you sort it out, you
re-do it and re-read it. That requires time, so I am sure
once they complete it, they will come out with concrete facts
that will satisfy the world as to Pakistan's non-involvement
in the Mumbai attacks," he said.
