Transcript of second interview with Dr. Mohammed Haneef by Australian Police

The full transcript of Dr. Mohammed Haneef's second interview with the Australian Federal Police in July was released on August 22 by Brisbane lawyer Peter Russo, who is acting for Dr. Haneef.

Mr. Russo said the full transcript of the second interview was being made public at Dr Haneef's request.

"He wants all of the matters raised with him by Federal Police and his answers to those questions put into the public arena, because of the continuing attempts being made to slander his name by innuendo and selective release of information by government and Federal Police spokespeople," Mr Russo said.

The full transcript pertains to Dr. Haneef's second interview . conducted through the afternoon of Friday, July 13, into the early hours of Saturday, July 14.

"The police translation of the chat room conversation between Dr. Haneef and his brother appears at the very end of the interview when Dr. Haneef and the police officers were all obviously fatigued," he said.

"It should be noted that Dr Haneef's attempts to correct the translation of the chat room conversation had been brushed aside by the police questioners with a promise that those corrections could be made at the end. Not all of those corrections seem to have been raised at the end," Mr Russo said.

Mr. Russo said that people could reach their own conclusions of the record of interview, including Dr Haneef's answers to questions.

It is available both as a single PDF file (17.1 Mb) and as smaller PDF file segments for easier download.
