Port Arthur

A man has been arrested accused of having provoked a terrible crime. He remembers nothing. Two police inspectors ask him questions. Today they have the last chance to achieve his confession. They really want that he remember everything happened? Or they simply want that he firm a guilty declaration?

A man has been arrested accused of having provoked a terrible crime. He remembers nothing. Two police inspectors ask him questions. Today they have the last chance to achieve his confession. They really want that he remember everything happened? Or they simply want that he firm a guilty declaration?

Every word heard in this function was said in an interrogation room from Risdom Prison in Tasmania -Australia-, on 04 July 1996. The transcript of this interrogation, which was leaked to the network and can be found in websites of media activism as WikiLeaks, has given rise to various conspiracy theories surrounding the case. Many people are still wondering if what they say is true or false.
