At the end of the interview he stood up and said:

"The last thing I want to say is that I will pray tomorrow that whoever did it will be discovered, and that the whole thing will be like an open book.
I rely on you then to clear my name. I have no confession to make, only that I didn't do it. That is all. I will pray for you and be with you if I can, whenever you, [Mr. Seán MacBride], Mr. Nolan-Whelan and Mr. Timoney are fighting for justice'.
