Dooku delivered in the form of a manipulated holographic recording allegedly showing Skywalker and Tano, who had found Rotta on Teth, harming the child, when in reality they were caring for it after he had fallen ill.
The ruse was successful, and Dooku was able to fool Jabba into believing his deception.

Although Dooku had hoped she at least managed to kill the Jedi after losing control of the Huttlet, she admitted that Skywalker had escaped and was on his way to Tatooine.
Jabba questioned why the Jedi would come to Tatooine, to which Dooku said that the Jedi plot had become clear and that Skywalker would soon arrive to kill the crime lord and wipe out the entire Hutt Clan.
Although displeased with Ventress's failure, Dooku used the situation to his advantage by convincing Jabba that the Jedi sought to gain complete control of Hutt Space without Jabba's interference.

Dooku urged him to reconsider, but the Toydarian king refused to deal with those who went back on their promises, as Ventress had broken the terms of the competition.
Deciding that negotiations would be more fruitful with Katuunko's successor, Dooku spitefully ordered Ventress to murder the king.
Katuunko's guards tried to stop the Dark Acolyte, but Ventress merely Force pushed them aside, knocking them unconscious.
Yoda prevented the murder, and Dooku watched as Ventress made her escape.
Dooku, watching the events unfold through the holoprojector, commented before taking his leave that it was a pity that he had not been there himself.
Dooku joined General Grievous aboard the heavy cruiser Malevolence in the Abregado system.
When a fleet of Republic cruisers entered the system, Dooku ordered Grievous to jam their communications.
Count Dooku tells Grievous that this will be a suitable test for their new weapon.
Seeing this as another opportunity to test the Malevolence 's ion cannons, Dooku gave Grievous the order to fire them.
The Malevolence discharged its cannons; as the wave approached, Koon and the clone troopers braced themselves for impact, the wave passed over the fleet and neutralized the cruisers' shields, and the vulnerable cruisers fell to fire from the numerous laser cannons.
To ensure the secrecy of the Malevolence 's ion cannons, Count Dooku dispatched rocket droids using a boarding ship to hunt and kill any survivors.

Dooku assigned the medical center as the Malevolence 's new target, and the assignment.
The Count states they will end the clone's suffering by eliminating them completely.
Dooku tells Grievous he's confidant in leaving the battle ship with him.
En route to the medical facility, Dooku contacted Grievous through a hologram transmission, after he received intelligence from his Master, that the Republic had launched a small group of fighters to attack the Malevolence.
Grievous noted that the Malevolence 's hyperdrive was not fast and the warship's navicomputer was forced to recalculate its coordinates in order to go around the Kaliida Nebula.
The Sith Lord advised his general not to underestimate the Jedi, but Grievous maintained that it would be Skywalker who would underestimate the Separatist ship.
As the Malevolence fled under increasing fire from the Republic cruisers, Dooku contacted Grievous.
Dooku tells Grievous not to compound his failure by allowing the prized warship to fall.
Not wanting the General to lose the Malevolence, Dooku told Grievous that an important senator would be arriving and if captured the Republic would cease their attack.
Dooku contacted Grievous, stating that the general and his warship were being awaited at the rendezvous point.

After completing Grievous' repairs, EV-A4-D followed the general back to the control room, informed Grievous of an incoming transmission from Dooku.
Dooku tells Grievous that his recent defeats at the Jedi's hands had shaken his faith.
Grievous soon discovered from Dooku that it was the Sith Lord himself who had deactivated his MagnaGuards and let the Jedi into his lair in order to reassess the cyborg general.
The Count confirms to Grievous that this is a test for him before the cyborg cuts off the transmission.
Returning to his castle, Grievous proceeded to the sanctum overlook chamber, where Count Dooku awaited a report via hololink.
Grievous stated that the Jedi had been defeated, and while Dooku revealed that victory over Vebb and the clones had been expected, the Sith Lord was pleased, however he was disappointed when he learned that Fisto had escaped and stated that there was "room for improvement" before severing the connection.

Dooku caused an avalanche as he left the cave, blocking the cavern entrance with the Force.
While the Jedi tried to find a way out, Dooku left and followed a trail back to his crashed vessel.
Dooku turns the corner to discover his sailor is joined by a massive saucer-shaped ship of unknown origin.
The Count looks as a party of over a dozen Weequay pirates loots the shuttle and sailor.
The pirate leader, Hondo Ohnaka, spots the confident Dooku striding toward the landing area.
Dooku came upon Hondo Ohnaka's pirate gang salvaging his ship.
Ohnaka was not intimidated by Dooku's stately manner while his pet, Pilf Mukmuk, sits on Dooku's shoulder.
The Kowakian monkey-lizard, Pilf Mukmuk, leapt on Dooku's shoulders while Hondo questioned him.
Hondo complemented the Solar Sailor, realizing the wealth of this stranger and Dooku allowed the pirates to raid his craft.
Ohnaka, playing the helpful type, offers Dooku transport to the nearest planet, Florrum, six parsecs away.
Ohnaka's offer was taken by Dooku, who agreed to pay in order to escape from Skywalker and Kenobi and the Sith hid his lightsabers so as not to show his status.
Hondo orders his men to return to the ship; they are heading home with their new "guest."
Taking the Count to the planet Florrum, Ohnaka put the ship down in his organization's base.
When they arrived at Ohnaka's base, Dooku is unarmed and surrounded by dozens of pirates.
Dooku arrived at their destination, but after stepping onto the planet Florrum Dooku was surrounded at blasterpoint by the gang.
Dooku warned the pirates that they were not dealing with a Jedi, but a Sith Lord.
Hondo then revealed he had known that Dooku was the Confederacy's leader, and also revealed that he now possessed Dooku's lightsaber thinking he was a Jedi, and told the Sith he was outnumbered.
Dooku attempted to negotiate that if he could get proper means of communications, he could call someone to pay any ransom for him, but Hondo knew that if the Count contacted the Confederacy, their armies would crush them in order to get Dooku free of charge.
Count Dooku was taken into the pirate's custody, so that he could be given away at a high ransom.
Ohnaka contacted the Republic Supreme Chancellor, asking for a million credits in spice, in exchange for the Count.
Palpatine and several others spoke with Hondo via hologram, and the pirate showed an embarrassed Dooku.
Ohnaka arranged a meeting between the Jedi and Dooku, who was suspended splayed in a containment field.
Kenobi and Skywalker grin at the Sith Lord's turn of misfortune.
Dooku remained defiant, confident that he won't remain a captive for long.
After Anakin and Obi-Wan entered Dooku's cell and subtly mocked his current imprisonment, Dooku relished in the thought that the Jedi would soon join him in captivity.
The Count warned Kenobi that the Weequay were "devious and deceitful, and most importantly...stupid."
Dooku chides the Jedi for their naivety, for he warns that they "underestimated them at their own peril."
Dooku was proven correct when he, Kenobi, and Skywalker were together locked in a prison cell.
Dooku tells the Jedi he did warn them the pirates were devious and that all three of them were shackled together and Dooku tried to separate them to no avail.
The Count states that while he holds his tongue the two would devise a brilliant strategy to get them off of Florrum.
