HL Deb 06 March 1996 vol 570 cc22-3WA
Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What roles have been allotted to the United States Central Intelligence Agency and to the United States Defence Intelligence Agency with regard to the identification of war criminals in ex-Yugoslavia, and whether these two organisations are under NATO, or under exclusive United States, command.

Baroness Chalker of Wallasey

The United States, like the United Kingdom, has provided a substantial quantity of information to the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. However, neither the United States nor the United Kingdom divulges the sources of the information it provides.

The command structures of the Central Intelligence Agency and the Defence Intelligence Agency are a matter for the United States authorities.
