Confession regarding morning’s events

I would also like to tell the truth about the events in the University of Munich this morning. I hereby confess that my brother and I brought these leaflets into the university in the suitcase that was confiscated upon our apprehension. We also scattered the leaflets.

In my estimation, there were about 1500-1800 leaflets entitled “Fellow Students!” and about 50 entitled “Call to All Germans”. We transported most of the leaflets in the above-mentioned suitcase. But my brother’s briefcase was also filled with these leaflets.

Inside the university building, my brother carried the suitcase while I stacked or scattered the leaflets in various places.
