Transcript 12 commissars should be definitely controverted, and I have accordingly been' instructed to request the withdrawal of the charges and the publication in the official organ of the Soviet Government of a statement to the effect that they have been withdrawn as they were proved to bo without foundation. I avail, &c. WILLIAM PETERS. No. 8. Soviet Government to Mr. Peters. Note Verbale. Tub People's Commissariat for Foreign Affairs presents its compliments to the Acting British Agent, and in reply to his note of the 20th December, concerning the charge of complicity in the assassination of the twenty-six Baku commissars in Transcaspia, made against the High Military Command of the British Occupation Forces, wishes to state that the fact alone that the execution of the commissars took place during the military occupation of Transcaspia by British troops is sufficient to place the responsibility for such action on the High British Military Command. It is beyond dispute that the fate of the imprisoned commissars was in the hands of the British military authorities in the occupied territory. The British Government can hardly deny this, since the declaration by the British Military Headquarters, which appeared in all the Baku newspapers on the 24th May. 1919. spoke of the extent to which Captain Reginald Teague Jones of the British Military Mission in Transcaspia, was involved in the affair of the twenty-six commissars. The declaration stated that it was Captain Teague Jones who proposed to the Askhabad Executive Committee the transfer of the imprisoned commissars to India. But there is also other abundant proof sustaining the charge. Without going further into the details of this undoubtedly premeditated crime, the People's Commissariat for Foreign Affairs wishes to state that it would welcome any conclusive evidence to the effect that the High Military Command of the British Occupation Forces in the Transcaspian Province is not involved in this affair, hut in the absence of such evidence it regrets its inability to consider the request of the British Government regarding the withdrawal of these charges. Moscow, January 12, 1928.
