Dear Paul,

You are probably right that whether a specific strategy in a political
process was optimal can always be questioned. But that's a different
discussion, and other people within FSFE can better speak about that
than myself.

Besnik claimed that FSFE gave money (even "the money") to lawyers in the
course of that activity. This is an allegation for which I would request
information about on what it is based.
