Further to this…
From last night’s interview…
Paul Byrne: “Six months ago, I asked you were you willing to take a lie detector test. You said you would. How do you feel about it today?”
Richard Satchwell: “At this point, I, myself, don’t feel up to it.”
Byrne: “But people will say that you’ve got something to hide if you don’t take the lie detector test, today or tomorrow.”
Satchwell: “I’ll take a lie detector test when I feel that I’m right. I’ve got nothing to hide, I’m not sleeping too well and I don’t suppose I’ll sleep much at all until the search in Mitchell’s Wood is finished. And when the time, when I feel right, I’ll contact yourself and I’ll take a lie detector test then.”
Byrne: “You’re now putting that on record, people will expect you to take that test.”
Satchwell: “I will put on record that, in the future, not today, not tomorrow, but when I feel right, I’ll contact you and I’ll sit down, I’ll take a lie detector test.”
