    tenses again

    Hi,

    could you please correct the tenses in the following sentence:

    The results of the investigation confirm the fact that the suspect was in phone contact with the above-named person even before leaving for Belgium, which gives rise to the suspicion that the person using this phone was involved in organizing illegal trade.

    Thanks a lot!

    As it stands it looks fine. I do not see any need to change the tenses.
