Bhaloo #136:
Cross-Examination by Mr Tajdin.
Q. Okay. How many of the farman books I have printed you have at your home either in Nairobi or in Toronto?
A. I have one book which is not printed. You gave it to me at the meeting. It is a white book. It's a draft farman. That's the one I have.
Q. It was a white book?
A. Yes. It had a white cover on it, and it said 'draft.'
Q. Okay. Can you take an undertaking -- undertaking of producing it?
MR. GRAY: I'll take that under advisement. I'm not going to undertake to do it, but I will consider it.
MR. TAJDIN: Okay. Can you produce --
MR. GRAY: As you know, this is a cross-examination.
MR. TAJDIN: -- a colour photograph of that draft book?
MR. GRAY: Okay, that's an alternative. We'll consider that, too. As this is a cross-examination, there's no duty to produce anything, but we will consider it. So you would like, as an alternative to producing the whole book, you would like a photograph of --
BY MR. TAJDIN: Q. I don't need the book because obviously I know what it is, but I just had a question because it was said it's a white cover, and I don't remember giving you any white-cover book. So just a colour photo will do.
MR. GRAY: So you would like a colour photograph of the cover of this document, this draft book?
MR. TAJDIN: Yes. I would like to see if it is white or it is burgundy. Just a colour photo.
