Transcript divided amongst us as follows : Nekrassov directed the work in the aepartment for industrial goods; I was in charge of the work in the finance department; Schweizer in the food department (fish, butter, cheese), of which he was the leader; and Bassov in the shipbuilding and rationalisation departments. Gradually others were drawn into our work. Gladyshev and Senenko were won over by me in the finance department. Nekrassov won Bossyatsky, Lapin, Lutheransky and Mordkovitch in the department for industrial goods " Schweizer, who was examined on January 24th, 1931, confirmed essentially Petunin's statements, and declared : " At the beginning of 1928 a report of Petunin was heard in the home of Nekrassov concerning his journey abroad and his meeting with Dan, and concerning the instructions of the foreign group of the Central Committee of the R.S.D.L.P.

Direct sabotage of the mobilisation of internal resources, of the development of the food supply work, and of the work for the drawing up of a review of the movement of demand, and the remaining supplies of commodities, etc. The accused Petunin declared : " As the chief factor in the carrying out of sabotage work, the organisation chose the planning, particularly at the time when the quarterly plans were dealt with.
