Shawl with leaflets

Question: During the course of the interrogation, I have shown you a shawl now and again and asked you whether it belongs to you or your brother, or whether you know who the owner of the shawl may be.

Answer: This shawl belongs to neither me nor my brother. In addition, I do not know to whom it could possibly belong. With a clear conscience, I have nothing further to say to this question.

When I am told that leaflets were wrapped up in this shawl, and that these leaflets were found shortly after we were apprehended in the university building, I cannot explain the connection.
