This is a tape recording of the interview of one of the accused Renault "spies" by Renault's security chief. "Kafkaesque" is the word that comes to mind. The man is accused of the gravest of crimes but in the most veiled terms, so that it is impossible for him to guess exactly what he is being accused of. His reaction is surprisingly mild--which may only have spurred his accuser's suspicions--but most likely he was stunned and bewildered. It is intimated that confession will be best for the soul of the accused, that things will go easier for him: but otherwise it will be la voie lourde. A chilling scene: imagine if this happened to you.
