  • Description

    Police in London on Friday (4 July) charged a 23-year-old Spanish waitress, Miss Angela Otaola, with possessing firearms after the discovery in her Bayswater flat of an arms cache believed to be linked with an international guerrilla network.

    The charge against Miss Otaola forestalled an attempt by her sister, Gloria Otaola, to bring a writ of Habeas Corpus against the police. Miss Angela Otaola was closely questioned for three days before being charged.

    Her boyfriend, Mr. Barry Woodhams -- who reported the arms cache to the police -- was released by police shortly before Miss Otaola was charged. British police are now working closely with French police who believe that the man who left the arms with Miss Otaola -- a Brazilian known as Carlos Martinez -- was the assassin who killed two French counter-espionage agents and a Lebanese informer in Paris last week.

    Martinez -- dubbed the "Jackal" by British newspapers -- is also believed to be part of a network of guerrillas in Europe -- with contacts in at least ten countries. Meanwhile, police throughout Britain are watching airports and ports in the hunt for Martinez, whom they believe uses London as the base for his activities.
