The trial continues.
How much of that did you get?
What would happen if you didn't go to work?
They threatened to me that they would beat me up and Petr would take me into his garage and beat me up with a baseball bat.

A Polish man has been jailed after he tried to sell secret nuclear submarine documents he stole from his neighbour.
Marcin Kostrzewa broke into his neighbour's flat and took sensitive documents which were stored in his airing cupboard.
The 31-year-old took the documents after searching online for things such as 'spy games', 'spies' and 'secret documents'.
He then contacted the Polish embassy and tried to sell the papers for £50,000.
He had denied committing the burglary between January and April last year. He claimed he had found the contents in a bin as he was carrying out research for a spy novel.
A jury at Plymouth Crown Court took less than an hour to find Kostrzewa guilty after a three day trial. He was jailed for four and a half years.
Alexander Chalk, prosecuting, said Kostrzewa entered the flat of Shane Spencer, who works as an engineer on submarines at the Royal Naval dockyard at Devonport in Plymouth.
Mr Chalk said the Polish man took ‘sensitive or secret material’ and was caught by a joint operation between British security services and the Metropolitan Police.
