Dear Home Office,

Under the FOIA, you informed me that eight Home Office officials worked on Operation Pelican, the effort to remove Julian Assange from the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

Please provide me with the following information, for 1 June 2018 - 1 May 2019:
1) Which governmental department was paying for Operation Pelican?
2) Send all communication between the Home Office and/or the FCDO and/or the Cabinet Office relating to Operation Pelican. This may include minuted meetings; emails; texts; whatsapp; signal etc etc.

Yours faithfully,
Kevin McEvoy
