Swiss police say I, a slim man of 74kg, sodomised to death a 120kg steroid taking, body building, ball of muscle martial arts fanatic in a sex game.
Inspecteur Fabien Fontannaz, who expressed his hatred for Australian values, specifically LGBT people and the Sydney Mardi Gras, really has quite a twisted imagination. He was so excited by the prospect of immersing himself in a homosexual sadomasochistic murder, that I was left wondering if it wasn't one of his own person fantasies.
When the Swiss arrested me in April 2015, I was at a critical point in my MBA, and I was starting a new work contract.
Between April and finishing my MBA in October, I had three deliverables.
As each deliverable came up, I went through a difficult decision process: continue my MBA, and potentially wear myself out, rendering myself unable to properly defend myself;
I had to constantly re-evaluate not only if I could fulfil the requirements of the current challenge; but if, after I had done so, I would have enough energy remaining to complete the remaining hurdles.

That's the real reason; if someone calls you a dirty foreigner, you are not enticed to visit!
Switzerland is a beautiful country. I know, I lived there for 8 years and travelled all over.
Initially based in Geneva, I had weekend study groups in Zurich for my Open University MBA -- I also had friends in Zurich -- and I bought a house with a small vineyard in Valais.
Valais is a huge tourist destination : they make a lot of Swiss wines there, it's famous for Raclette AOC cheese, summer sports include mountain climbing (Matterhorn, Weisshorn), cycling; even fishing.
A depressed friend hung himself in my flat, and when I called the police to report a suicide, they immediately turned it into a sex game murder a la Amanda Knox. The police inspector in charge tried delete a "suicide text message" from my mobile phone when I showed it to him. Here is a copy of that message from the criminal file:
