Col. Smith W. Brookhart, IGD. Also present: Pfc. George W. Garand, Interpreter; T/4 R.R. Kerry, Reporter. A. That is completely wrong. I know such a thing will make no difference to me because in any case, you will sentence me. May I put an addition to this? The colonel in charge of the London Prison that I was in has told me that I would be hanged in any case, no matter what the outcome would be. Since I am fully aware of that, all I want to do is to clear up on the fundamental things that are wrong here. Q. Have you been subject to any treatment that you consider to be intimidation, coercion, or undue influence since you have been brought to Nurnberg? A. I have not suffered from wrong treatment. Q. Have you suffered any threats or any preconceived statements that you are guilty of any crime? A. Not directly, but I am treated as a man that is already in a criminal prison. Q. You have been examined at great length because of the multitude of evidence and witnesses that have been presented in the field where you are active. A. I have not complained about any treatment and I am not complaining now. The difference between the treatment here and in London is like day and night. Q. The purpose of this extended examination, which today has gone even into the night is to try and crystallize the facts insofar as we are able to get you to testify. Is that clear? A. Yes. Q. Let me go ahead then.
