    I WONDER what he meant by that he did it in good faith. Didn’t his 62-year-old head know that it was stealing?

    “prospective buyers pressurised me to sell the equipment to them” did they charm you or did they threaten you with guns? you were just being selfish you did as your 69yrs 419 brain instructed even tried to bribe the officers without doubt you are a certified 419… there is no crime dancing to the music you played yourself.. enjoy your days in jail ‘if possible.’
