  1. it is so funny who is talking how's house. nija I beg.

  2. Please stop trying people on the pages of newspaper. The transcript is prejudicial to the ongoing investigation. Before transcribing it is necessary to identify the ownership of the audio statement by expert. Despite these documents, he is still entitled to the presumpsion of innocence until the contrary is proved going by the constitution.
