Guards escorting Lortie re- moved his handcuffs before he entered the courtroom. He sud- denly shoved them aside, called them a "bunch of dirty guys" and ran down a corridor where he was trapped by police. He was returned to the court- room where Rose is on trial in the kidnapping of Mr. Lapo'.-te. Mr. Justice Noel Barbes, pre- siding over Hose's Court of queen's Bench jury trial was to decide whether to allow 21-year- old Lortie to testify. Crown Prosecutor Fernand Cote maintained it was his right to question Lortie about a state- ment he gave police at the time of his arrest in November, 1970. Defence lawyer Roliert Le- mieux argued the statement was extracted from Lortie by force. Lortie is awaiting trial at the January assizes for the murder of M.7. Laporte, slain a week after he was abducted from in front of his home where he had been playing football with his1' nephew. Rose's first trial on the kid- napping charge ended in a hung jury last May. He also faces a charge of murder in Mr. Lap- orte's death.
