Who chased after him? They didn't catch him at that moment, they simply knew who it was. It was a kid we knew already, he was quite a prankster. He would do a lot of stuff like that. He would come, throw stones at the post. The story was that the Border Police allegedly put him into a vehicle for us, and I'm pretty sure that it was someone from our company who did the final act, let’s call it that. They talked quite a lot in the company about how it was, about how they sat him down, put his arm on a chair and just broke his arm like that on the chair, like this.
How old was he? He was among the older ones, he was around 14. He was relatively old among the kids who were running around under our feet. And it was a punishment, because our soldier's leg got broken because of him, because he jumped from the post.
Why did this story shock you? Because it was payback? Less that it was payback – I expected these people to give payback if they hurt one of ours. But to take someone and break his arms and legs? That's super mafia. Like, what is that? And the whole time there was the description running through the company, of how they put his arm on the chair and broke it.
Did the commanders hear it? Did you have to hide it from them or did they look the other way? I think it was very hidden from them, but do you think they don't know, with such a small company? I think it’s very logical that they knew, but they didn't speak about it openly. It was always kind of hush-hush conversations and they didn't really say who did it. We knew it, because the one who it happened to, the one who broke his leg, he was one of the really senior soldiers, he was right before his release and that was what angered the senior-senior soldiers the most. Like, you need to teach him a lesson because otherwise he'll do it again and again. He threatened them with a grenade. The guy thought he was going to die. And he showed him that he was throwing a grenade at a post, the guy jumped from the post for a reason, he was sure they were going to kill him. So I did expect some kind of payback, but to see that kid in a wheelchair on the street and both his arms and legs in a cast…
