Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, June THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD lerenle Halifai St JoHn't PracipitatibnK HOUSTON (AP) An American oil company says it has broken off talks with Ethiopian separatists who kidnapped five of the company's employees, in- cluding three Canadians. N. W. Freeman, chairman of Tenneco Inc., said in a statement Saturday that his company was withdrawing its negotiating team from Asmara, Ethiopia, because one person sent to retrieve the company's five employees last week was kidnapped and another was killed. The statement, made by Freeman in Athens, Greece, was released here. He said the latest killing and kidnapping came after mem- bers of- the Eritrean Liberation Front (ELF) had agreed in a letter to release the five Tenneco employees kidnapped in March after their aircraft crashed in Ethiopia. "When Tenneco complied with ELF request and dis- patched a helicopter (to pick up the the ELF not only kept the helicopter and pilot, but killed a Dutch missionary nurse and used the helicopter to kidnap an American nurse." Freeman said. The Dutch nurse who was killed was Anna Stickwerda. 54. The helicopter pilot is Grant Wyatt. 30. of Calgary. Wyatt. 30, is an employee of CanWest Aviation Ltd. of Cal- gary, as is the pilot captured earlier. Don Wederfprt. 27. Jonathan Pridie. president of the firm which has a trans- portation contract with Ten- neco. left Thursday for Ethiopia to attempt to negotiate the captives" release. Captured along with Weder- forl in March were four geolo- gists, including Cliff James. 27. of Walkerton. Ont. External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp said in Calgary Friday the Wyatt party was flying to pick up the captives but was "double-crossed." He .added, however, that he does not think the ELF intends to harm them. The newly-captured American nurse, Deborah Dortzbach, 24, is five months pregnant and in delicate health, her husband said. The Dortzbachs have been working for a year in an Ethiopian mission hospital. Idris Mohammed Adam, head of the ELF revolutionary council, said in a report from Addis Ababa Tuesday he would trade the five Tenneco captives for political prisoners held by the Ethiopian government. Freeman said in his state- ment that the company had met with every request by the ELF for iclease of the hostages. "We still do not know what they want or why they continue to hold the hostages." Pleads guilty WASHINGTpN (AP) Former presidential aide darles Colson pleaded guilty today to a charge that he led an attempt to influence the outcome of the 1971 trial of Daniel Ellsberg. a former Pentagon analyst who had been accused of leaking to the press the top-secret Pentagon papers on the Indochina war.
