And it says at paragraph 2:
"I have recently [it's dated 4 July 2006] read the witness statement relied upon by the appellant given by Florim Gashi dated 21 September 2005. The purpose of this statement is to answer various allegations raised by Mr Gashi in his statement. This is intended to be a brief statement in response, and if this appeal progresses any further, as the appellant wishes, then I can produce a fuller statement in due course if required."
Then your statement goes on to rebut the various allegations in the main and to accept one or two of them.
