Transcript from ‘Sentenced To Death By The DPR’ podcast

Shaun – I was losing weight and then on top of that, we had the interrogations and everything else which just meant I was always fighting lack of intake of food. I was just starving to death and I still say to people, it’s the worst form of torture. You’re just sitting in the cell all day and you’re just thinking about food and where you can get your next food. If you’re in an isolation cell, you don’t know what’s happening and what’s going on. I was quite lucky because I could speak a bit of Russian. When I met the other guys, I was a translator and had an understanding of what was going on.
