Special Report Transcript Episode 64, Section 4, Time 13:32

They made me stand the whole night, there was no chair, but I was given a pen to write a statement. I wrote a brief history of myself. It was Saturday. Sunday I continued the same thing. They kept on tearing the papers and telling me to write. The third night I started becoming delirious and my legs were swelling. Eventually I must have passed out, I was bleeding. I must have passed out because when I came to I was lying on the floor, all wet, they must have poured water over me and he threw a packet of sanitary pads at me. ‘Go to the bathroom.’ And I could see that I was menstruating and I was just wondering how he realized that.
