Salaf, in their website, had also uploaded an audio interview given by a resident of Kinbidhoo in relation to this issue.

In the audio interview, the resident of Kinbidhoo said that even the islanders do not know the work or occupation of this expatriate as he had once said he was into clove trade, another time he had said he was into garlic trade and also to some other people in that island, he had said he was a photographer and his business was to sell pictures via internet.

The interviewee further said that the visiting Englishman had given a CD to a girl from the island and that this CD contained stories related to Christian religion.
