Segment 1: Maria Katsaris on radio from Guyana
SF Operator: Uh, go ahead.
Katsaris: My name is Maria Katsaris, and I’m saying that I am unequivocally opposed to aiding my dad (unintelligible). I am 24 years old, and living in (unintelligible) Guyana project. I’ve had painful trauma with my dad through the years, from being molested by him, starting at an early age. And I don’t want to hurt him, but I want absolutely nothing to do with him. To make it perfectly clear, I will not see him under any circumstances. I had to put up with him in a state that did not have (unintelligible) care. He always infix— fixates on me when he’s between marriages, and (unintelligible phrase) please, please inform him, I do not want to receive him here or anywhere. I never said— I never said anything about the Guyanese government, that his telegram is another one of his uh, media slurs. Do you copy?
SF Operator: Uh, roger, roger.
SF Operator: Is that all, Maria?
Katsaris: (More passionate) No, I want to say is, that I will not see him, and I didn’t say I didn’t know why he could not come in December when some U.S. dignitaries and the first of uh, the (unintelligible) were coming here to see the project. I did not want to see him at all, because of his deviousness —ness, and I don’t understand his support of the Greeks within the dictatorship in Greece or his other racist views. Our personal differences are irrevocable, and his arrogant manner that if he would see me, I would go along (unintelligible phrase), I do not wish to substitute his life, and I do not want to see him under any circumstances. Do you copy?
SF Operator: Roger, roger.
SF Operator: Uh, is that all, Maria?
Katsaris: (More quickly) He was a past apologist for the Greeks (unintelligible) and his other views, I, you know, I put it off in the past, but I do not want to see him at all now. I do not want to see him.
SF Operator: Okay, roger, roger.
Katsaris: So if he could please uh, notify (unintelligible) the court, I’d appreciate that.
SF Operator: Okay, Maria.
Katsaris: My policy does not have to be (unintelligible word). I’m a mature, adult woman, do you copy?
SF Operator: Roger.
Katsaris: Thank you.
SF Operator: Okay. Is that all, Maria?
Katsaris: Roger, roger, thank you.
