Reference: FOI Case Number 15468
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
