Practices varied over the years, but if someone wanted to use
the fact that a UFO sighting took place outside the UK as reason
not to investigate, that would have been legitimate.

During my time on the UFO project I sent any UFO photos and
videos I acquired (wherever they were taken) to DIS staffs and
to JARIC. The results of the consequent imagery anlaysis would
feed into the wider investigation. None of this would be shared
with witnesses, who'd just be sent a standard response based
around our "no defencence significance" soundbite.

An indication of how this worked in practice can be found here:
