21 September 2010 
Dear Ms. Iatridou 
 
I am writing in response to your email of 9 August requesting that a search of 
the ILEF Less-Lethal Weapons database is made regarding Directed Energy 
Weapons. Your request has been handled as a request for information under 
the Freedom of Information Act 2000. 
 
We have searched the ILEF database and can find no less lethal weapons 
that meet your description. A search on a separate data table we keep on 
Directed Energy Weapons has yielded the attached list of weapons. Links to 
further information on each weapon has been included where this is available. 
I hope this is helpful.  
If you are dissatisfied with this response you may request an independent 
internal review of our handling of your request by submitting a complaint 
within two months to the address below, quoting reference 15468. If you ask 
for an internal review, it would be helpful if you could say why you are 
dissatisfied with the response

As part of any internal review the Department's handling of your information 
request wil  be reassessed by staff who were not involved in providing you 
with this response. If you remain dissatisfied after this internal review, you 
would have a right of complaint to the Information Commissioner as 
established by section 50 of the Freedom of Information Act.  
 

Yours sincerely
