Lastly, your Honours, I would like to refer the Chamber and the witness to tab 17 and the specific page in question is pages 60 through 61. Starting at bottom of page 60, on line 28 the question was posed to you, Mr Koker:

"Q. So where would the people work?

"A. These people, they working in farms, farms of commanders."

Page 61, line 1:

"Q. You said they were not paid when they worked?

"A. They were not using money. They used barter system.

"Q. So there was no currency available?

"A. Yes, sir."

Do you recall giving those responses to those questions before the AFRC bench?
