I had money with me because I work a Qat dealer in Dali City, he sends me Qat and I distribute it and then receive the money and transfer it to him. That day I had around 67,000 YER. They asked, where did you get this money from? Did you receive it today or last Thursday when they handed out money? I said what Thursday? So they started saying, come on talk and I’ll let you go home. I said talk about what? I wasn’t expecting that it will get to this extent. So after they started burning me, I saw that even if I talked and answered any question they will be wanting more answers of other millions of questions.
