About his brother’s alleged relationship with drugs, he said: “My brother used to be a street fighter and one time he was rotated along with several people, (for humiliation), but he never misused drugs and he was not a drug dealer and he was quiet, but in his second trial, he was sentenced to death by the judge. He was quite and was serving his imprisonment.”
