The Isle of Man Government has confirmed that it did respond to requests from the Indian authorities regarding an investigation and prosecution in that country concerning bribery and corruption.
The requests received from the Indian authorities were executed in full and all documentary evidence sought was provided via the Attorney General’s Chambers in September and November 2011. Further information was provided in April 2012 in response to a supplementary letter of request sent by India.
The Isle of Man Government is fully committed to assisting other countries in their efforts to tackle financial crime and such requests for assistance always receive a response.
The recent MONEYVAL evaluation recognised that the Island, using well-established processes, provides a very substantial level of international assistance.
The Attorney General’s Chambers has now written to the Indian authorities regarding the information attributed to them and reminding them of the assistance that has been provided by the Isle of Man.
