‘Peter Jacobs, Former MK Cadre, Torture victim.’ // If I said to Mr. Jacobs I put the electrodes in his nose, I may be wrong; if I said I attached it to his genitals, I may be wrong; if I had put a probe into his rectum, I may be wrong. That is way the specific methods I could have used any of those three. // Did you during your service use all three methods? // In the case of Mr. Jacobs, yes sir. // I was the first survivor of this torture method of you, you’d concede that? // Yes. // You’d concede as well there were other people busy with that, which means it was an official method that was authorised and approved that you were using? // Not writtenly authorised, but condoned.
