SAO PAULO F1 boss Ec­cle­stone’s mum-in­law res­cued from kid­nap­pers

The Myanmar Times - - World -

BRAZIL­IAN po­lice said they had res­cued the kid­napped mother-in-law of Bri­tish For­mula 1 boss Bernie Ec­cle­stone un­harmed after more than a month in cap­tiv­ity.

Apare­cida Schunck Flosi Palmeira – the 67-year-old mother of Mr Ec­cle­stone’s Brazil­ian wife Fabi­ana Flosi – had been miss­ing since she was kid­napped on June 22.

Au­thor­i­ties said in a short state­ment she had been “lib­er­ated” and was “un­harmed,” adding that they had ar­rested two sus­pects.

Lo­cal Globo TV showed the woman hug­ging wait­ing rel­a­tives as she ar­rived at a po­lice sta­tion un­der po­lice es­cort.

A demand for a US$188 mil­lion ran­som, made to the fam­ily via email, had not been paid.

Kid­nap­pers pos­ing as de­liv­ery men ab­ducted her from her home in the Jardin Santa He­lena area in Sao Paulo.

She is the mother of Mr Ec­cle­stone’s 38-year-old wife, who met the 85-year-old bil­lion­aire while work­ing for the In­ter­la­gos Grand Prix in 2009.
