Judge reads out interview transcripts of the Bruderholz defendants

The presiding judge in the case of the alleged bombers in Basel's Bruderholz district presented surveillance videos and interview transcripts to the Federal Criminal Court on Tuesday afternoon. The two accused continued to refuse to testify.

"I had to do the transport from Liestal to Basel, I had to go there and put it down," reads a transcript of the conversation read out by the presiding judge. "We walked the route twice."

When asked by the presiding judge what exactly had been transported from Liestal to Basel, the two defendants again refused to testify before the Federal Criminal Court. The two men had already refused to testify during the interrogation and only answered questions about their state of health.

When asked if they had nothing to do with the incident, the first defendant again refused to testify, while the second stated that he had nothing to do with it.
