1. mcu Ecevit speaking to the press SOUNDBITE: (in English) "I respect the decision of the courts and justice. Hoever I must say that I am not goin gto priosn with a guilty conscience, I consider I have done a duty. We must get used to paying a price for our freedoms, and I consider that four months in prison is a moderate price for freedom. Mosat important is for a person to be free in his own mind... I wil be in prison as a free man, not a prisoner outside."
