In a speech last week, President Bush specifically mentioned tahill and Malaysia.
Details provided by Tahir and listed in the report include transactions between Khan\'s agents, selling nuclear equipment to Iran in cash of $3 million, and supplying the uranium compound Libya used during the enrichment process.
According to tahill, Libya asked Khan for help in 1997 to set up a uranium enrichment program.
Negotiations between Pakistani scientists and a Libyan identified as Mohammed Matu Mohammed began in Islamabad, Turkey.
About 2001, Khan told Tahir that the \"certain amount\" of uranium used in the enrichment process was flown from Pakistan to Libya, the report said.
Later, some centrifuge units were flown from Pakistan to Libya.
Khan\'s network can\'t bring anything directly to Libya, it helps build Libya and sends machines and technicians to install centrifuges
According to Tahir\'s account, operate and call it \"Project machine store 1001 \".
A centrifuge is a precision machine that can be used for nuclear weapons or nuclear enrichment.
At the end of last year, Libya acknowledged attempts to develop weapons of mass destruction and promised to destroy them.
Unlike Libya, Iran has denied such ambitions.
Tahill told police he was recruited into Khan\'s network in 1994.
That year, according to Khan\'s instructions, Tahir arranged for the delivery of second-hand centrifuges of two containers from Pakistan to Iran
The report said it was a merchant ship owned.
An unidentified Iranian paid a unit fee of about $3 million in UAE currency dirham.
\"The cash was put into two briefcases and kept in an apartment, which Pakistani nuclear weapons experts use as a guesthouse every time they visit Dubai,\" the report said . \".
An agent named \"working for Khan\" was Peter Griffin, an Englishman who claimed that he had designed the Libyan workshop and sent eight Libyan technicians to Spain
The other two were reportedly Freidrich Tinner, a Swiss engineer in his 1980 s, and his 39-year-old son, Urs Tinner, who allegedly worked with Tahir, let the Malaysian company Scomi Precision engineering company or the scope company produce centrifuge parts.
SCOPE has designed more than 25,000 separate parts for Dubai
The company, headquartered in Griffin, Gulf technology industry, shipped between December 2002 and August 2003 under a contract negotiated by tahill.
Swiss officials said Friday that the Swiss authorities had launched an investigation into tintinner\'s role.
The Tinna family issued a statement to The Associated Press saying that Tinna has been a technical consultant in Kuala Lumpur for the past three years.
It says he controls the manufacture of mechanical parts, but \"he is unable to obtain information about the use of the customer or the goods throughout the period.
\"The parts are in boxes marked with the name SCOPE and were seized in the Mediterranean on their way from Dubai to Libya on last October.
The family statement said that Urs Tinner stopped working for SCOPE on last October because he had not been paid for consultation for several months.
\"Other family members are not involved in the process at any time,\" the statement said . \".
The scope is a subsidiary of Scomi Group, an oil company. and-
The biggest stakeholder of the gas company is Kaspadu, an investment company owned by Kamaluddin Abdullah, the son of the Malaysian prime minister.
According to public documents, Tahir joined Kaspadu as a director in December 2000, approximately at the same time as Scomi determined the scope and built the factory to produce parts ordered by the Gulf technology industry.
Tahill left the board in early 2003.
Scomi and its employees believe the parts will be used in Dubai\'s oil and gas industry, the report said.
Only tahill and Tinner, who he invited to supervise the work, knew the real purpose and final destination.
A Malaysian official, who declined to be named, told The Associated Press Friday that there was no immediate plan to detain tahill because investigators found no \"compelling evidence\" of his violation of Malaysia or other laws \".
But the official said tahill was under close surveillance.
