The Quebec government re Mains firm in its position which has already been made known even before or. Lemieux was chosen As representative of the the statement said. There can be no question then of the government accept ing or discussing the Fly de mands before dealing with the initial meanwhile hundreds of policemen continued the search for the hideouts m Here the two hostages Are held under sent ence of death unless the Fly demands Are met. Continued the Price the Fly has set on their lives freeing of 23 Fly compatriots convicted or accused of terrorist crimes their Safe transport to Cuba or Algeria with their families for those who want to go payment of in Gold cessation of the current police search exposure of an Fly police informer and re employment of More than 400 mail truck Drivers who lost their jobs in a shift of a Montreal postal contract this year.

Demers met or. Lemieux in a police lockup where the Fly lawyer was held on a charge of obstructing Justice. Tuesday morning or. Lemieux was arraigned and his Case was set Over to Friday. Then the two lawyers brought their Mam questions to a con Ference room in the province owned Quebec Hydro building. Then or. Lemieux appeared before about 200 people in a conference room of the Nelson hotel in the old Section of Mont real. His audience included a horde of reporters plus an assemblage of Ultra nationalists. Flanked by avowed separatists such As Charles Gagnon and Pierre Vallieres and the controversial Michel Chartrand president of the Montreal Cen trial Council of the confederation of National Trade unions the 29-year-old lawyer told of the first negotiating session. To the cheers of the nationalists he said the Fly is not interested in bargaining for re lease of the hostages. He de. Scribed the talks As very to since the hostages had Al understand Why the government was not ready to co operate. He was apparently referring to letters purportedly written by or. Cross and or. Laporte say ing they Are ready to accept the Fly word they will be release upon fulfilment of terrorist ran som demands. Or. Lemieux suggested a new formula at the afternoon talks although the subsequent turn of events made it almost Aca Demic. He suggested the 23 Fly com patriots whom he described As political be flown to either Cuba or Algeria and there held under restraint until the two hostages were released. The in Gold would also be held in Trust for the 23. He contended this plan would provide the guarantee sought by Premier Bourassa. The lawyer announced his apparent withdrawal from the talks at a second Nelson Hote news conference which a punctuated by shouts curse passage for the prisoners to those countries. An Ottawa spokesman said this was simply a matter of keeping the two governments in formed of events because their countries had been named in the communiques in a House of commons Exchange with opposition Leader Stanfield or. Trudeau said his government is in Complete agreement with Quebec on the province s primary aim in the negotiations. Referring to the Fly the prime minister said it is a mistake i think to Jive them the publicity which is the thing they Hope for most.

The punches were thrown when Ron Golden an English speaking reporter from cuter news Agency tried to question or. Lemieux while the lawyer was delivering his statement in French. The fracas lasted Only a few minutes and Golden left the con Ference room unhurt. The lawyer said or. Demers proposed that the kidnappers be flown to either Algeria or Cuba upon release of the hostages this was substantially the same As the offer Quebec jus Tice minister Jerome Choquette made in a broadcast saturday. The Fly ignored the Cho Quette offer in subsequent communiques but or. Lemieux said he told or. Demers the propos als was actually the kidnappers have sought nothing for themselves although release of their 23 compatriots is one of their major Ransom demands. The statement from the pre Mier s office drafted in legalistic French said or. Demers had appeared before the Provin Cial Cabinet to Render an account of his afternoon meeting with the Fly spokesman. The government statement was apparently issued before the Premier s office was aware that the talks had come to a kidnapped nine Days ago and or.
