  • Description

    SVETLANA STALIN, DAUGHTER OF THE FORMER SOVIET LEADER, SECRETLY LEFT THE SWISS ALPINE RESORT OF BEATENBERG LAST NIGHT (MONDAY) TO ELUDE JOURNALIST WHO HAD TRACED HER THERE. MEANWHILE, THE AMERICAN STATE DEPARTMENT CONFIRMED THAT SHE HAD REQUESTED POLITICAL ASYLUM IN THE USA, BUT SAID THAT NO DECISION HAD YET BEEN TAKEN.

    MISS STALIN ARRIVED IN GENEVA ON SATURDAY WITH A THREE-MONTH TOURIST VISA, AND A PROMISE FROM THE SWISS GOVERNMENT TO PROTECT HER PRIVACY. SHE HAS SAID SHE DOES NOT WANT TO RETURN TO THE SOVIET UNION, AND THE USA IS ONLY ONE OF A NUMBER OF COUNTRIES SHE HAS ASKED TO GIVE HER POLITICAL ASYLUM.

    THE WHEREABOUTS OF THE 42-YEAR-OLD WIDOW HAD BEEN A MYSTERY SINCE HER ARRIVAL IN SWITZERLAND. THEN, WHEN JOURNALISTS FINALLY TRACED HER TO BEATENBERG, THEY WERE TOLD BE A SENIOR POLICE OFFICIAL THAT HE HAD TAKEN HER TO ANOTHER HIDEAWAY, WHICH HE REFUSED TO NAME.
