Deane dares abductors: Try it again
Friday, September 14th 2007
Atlantic LNG chairman Gordon Deane has recovered from the recent attempt to kidnap him, and will be back in Toco this weekend to see if his would-be abductors are brave enough to try it again.
This was the statement given to the nation by Attorney General John Jeremie at yesterday's Senate sitting.
In his contribution to the debate on the Bail Amendment Bill, Jeremie disclosed that he spoke with Deane on Monday, and reported to the Senate that the former chairman of the Integrity Commission was "fine and happy".
"He will not be leaving the country or bad-mouthing us. He is a soldier," Jeremie said.
"He will be back down in the country this week, and he wants the people who came for him to come back," the Attorney General went on, prompting UNC Senator Wade Mark to ask whether Jeremie was "setting up" Deane.
Deane was at his estate in Toco on September 8 when he was ambushed by three men around 1 p.m. and forced into the back seat of his own van, which his captors drove off in.
Deane managed to escape from the van, and was chased through the forest. He managed to escape by jumping over a waterfall, and then made his way to the Toco Main Road and then to the police station in the area.
Three men were subsequently arrested in possession of Deane's van in a road block along the Toco Main Road. However, they were subsequently released by police.
