Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta X THE LHHDRIDGC HfRAtD Tunsday, Doccmber 22, 1970 Government will meet demands of kidnappers RIO DE JANEIRO (CP) The Brazilian government an- noimced Monday night that it is ready to free 51 of the 70 politi cal prisoners demanded by Uie abductors of Swiss Ambassador Giovanni Buchsr In exehange lor his release. Bus driver given for Iielp d EDMONTON (CP) Floyd Steltcr Monday re- ceived a reward for helping to catch a bank rob- ber who recently tried to make his getaway by city bus. Mr. Stelter, a bus driver for 12 years, received a cheque from the Canadian Bankers' Association and told of his part in appre- hending the robber. He was at the wheel of his bus in downtown Edmonton when a man, breathing heavily, boarded the vehicle and urged him to get the bus moving. The man then went to the rear of the bus and sat jumped up nerv- ously after a few seconds because the bus was still stationary. He ran to the door and collided with an employee of the Royal Bank of Canada whose branch had just been robbed of S640. The bank employee yelled that the man was a robber and Mr. Stelter helped wrestle him into submision. Terrance Earl Gorrie, 27, of Fernie, B.C., is presently serving 31z years in peniten- tiary for the robbery. It gave various reasons why the other 19 could not be freed. Some were serving life sent- ences, some were not in prison at all and one did not want to go, a said. government statement There was no word today on whether the kidnappers would accept the government's offer. The kidnappers have said (hat Buchcr, seized in downtown Rio Dec. 7, will be set free after the prisoners on their list have been flown to Chile, Algeria or Mex- ico and their safe arrival has been reported by International UIHVS agencies. Observers noted that the kid- nappers put the highest value on some of the prisoners who, mainly because of the lengthy sentences they are serving, the government has refused to r lease. SOME ARE FREE The government said one ma. and three women on the kidnap pers' list were not in prisor while another could not be idei tified because he was listed oa under an alias. And it said that another pri; oner, Sao Paulo journalist Ne son Gatto, had said he did no want to go. Among the others exclude were prisoners serving sen ences for kidnapping and mur der and those serving Ion THIS ranging up to life impris onment. But the government did not exclude Swiss-Brazilian student leader Jean Marc von der Weid and an American-Brazilian girl, Nancy Mangabelra Unger, who is awaiting trial accused of tak- ing part in an abortive attempt to kidnap tlie U.S. consul in Re- cife earlier this year.
