The attached report from the Commanding Officer,

Honourable the Political Resident A senior ranking political representative (equivalent to a Consul General) from the diplomatic corps of the Government of India or one of its subordinate provincial governments, in charge of a Political Residency. *ith reference to
telegrams 1330 25th November and 2006 27th November
from the Senior Naval Officer.
2« Orders issued to the Commanding Officer, R»M»S«
"CROCUS* 1 by the Senior Naval Officer contained the
following instructions
Signal 1230. 26th November. It is first
necessary to discover who the woman is and her
true reason for seeking protection at Isa's house.
A slave woman might reasonably do so but it would
be suspicious in the case of a free woman who by
Arab custom would always go to her relatives.
Isa's eldest son, who was born of a slave negress,
has a bad reputation and it is quite possible that
the whole trouble is due to improper conduct on
his part with some woman in the village* Isa
himself would gladly put political colour on the
matter to obtain our support for his family but
British support must not be given to crime against
Arab laws and customs.
3. The Senior Naval Officer is satisfied that the
Commanding Officer, H.M. S. "CROCUS" took the greatest
p ^ins to arrive at the truth of the matter but it is
noteworthy that the Senior Naval Officer has since heard
from two native sources that the woman was abducted
from her home by Isa's eldest son and was found by her
brother at the son's house (not Isa 1 s house). The
Senior Naval Officer has also heard that there was
some discontent in the village on account of the
punishment of the men and that since then both of Isa*s
sons have left the neighbourhood by order of the Sheikh.
It is likely to be some time before the whole truth
is discovered.
