you ask me to publicly reply and I do so. Even if I find odd that you
ask me a public reply. If that photo appeared on Bollyn's website, something
I was not aware of, it should mean that Bollyn agrees with it. Or else
it would be easy for him to deny. It would also be easy for him to deny
that he is not the author of his own website and of the articles published
I want to point out that that picture has been actually taken.
I do not remember who took it. In that moment there were many journalists
I had never met Bollyn before and so I am not able to confirm the identity
of that man that appears in that picture. It was him who approached me
at the end of the conference where I presented my book Zero, and footages
of the movie of the same name.
In that short chat, he told me that he has been "forced" to emigrate
in order to escape from "threats". For this reason I reckon it is better
for me not to reveal in which nation I was in that moment when that photo
was taken. If that man is Bollyn, and if he is forced to defend himself
against threats, I do not think it is fair to reveal the place of his volountary
exile (even though I believe that even a modest hound dog, analyzing my
travel schedule and that photo, including the titles of the book in the
background, could trace the nation in question).
I hope I have satisfied the curiosity of the sceptics on the Internet.
