Here I am as a reporter trying to extract some declarations from the defense attorney representing a corrupt politician at the Court House during the investigation of a scandal that shocked my city years ago. The politicians involved had robbed a lot of public money and soon after this picture was taken three of them ended in jail. I had had published already a lot of stories about the investigation and was not very popular among the defendants. You can see by the picture that the lawyer was not very happy with my questions, which was a good sign for me. I didn’t obtain many elaborated answers but his silences were very eloquent. I made a good report that day.
