HC Deb 08 May 1916 vol 82 c274
6. Sir J. D. REES

asked the Secretary of State for India whether the Special Tribunal which recently gave judgment in the Lahore conspiracy case arrived at any conclusions regarding the participation in such conspiracy of German official or unofficial agencies?


The Lahore Special Tribunal in the first trial found indications that individual Germans, both officials and others, had communications with and gave assistance to Indian seditionists. That belief is strengthened by the findings in the recent supplementary trial.
