How damning was it to figure in the notorious underworld tapes?
I had no real contribution in the conversation. See, fear can make a man do desperate things. When I spoke to "him", I was a family man with liabilities responding to a sudden telephonic conversation with him. Remember, I was calling him "Sir". It was such a nightmare.

But why did they rake up the tapes after two years?
I've no idea. The whole system sucks. And you are always trying not to be sucked in.
