  • Description

    CAPTAIN HENRIQUE GALVAO - THE MAN WHO SEIZED THE PORTUGUESE LINED SANTA MARIA EARLIER THIS YEAR, AND WHO WAS REFUSED PERMISSION TO LAND IN BRITAIN LAST WEEK - FLEW INTO LONDON AIRPORT AGAIN, NOVEMBER 3.

    WHEN HE FIRST LANDED IN LONDON HE WAS KEPT UNDER GUARD FOR NEARLY SIX HOURS BEFORE BEING PUT ON A PLANE FOR STOCKHOLM. THIS TIME, ON HIS WAY TO GIBRALTAR AFTER A LECTURE TOUR OF SWEDEN, HE WAS ESCORTED TO AN AIRPORT RESTAURANT BY IMMIGRATION OFFICIALS.

    CAPTAIN GALVAO WAS MET BY MR. JOHN DUGDALE, LABOUR MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT FOR WEST BROMWICH, WHO WAS ACTING ON BEHALF OF ANOTHER M. P. IN ORDER TO SEE THAT GALVAO WAS TREATED FAIRLY.

    AT THE AIRPORT RESTAURANT, CAPTAIN GALVAO EXPLAINED THAT ON HIS FIRST VISIT TO LONDON HE MERELY INTENDED TO SPEND A NIGHT AT AN HOTEL BEFORE FLYING ON. INSTEAD HE SPENT THE NIGHT IN A LOCKED ROOM WITH TWO POLICEMEN OUTSIDE: ASKED IF ANY REASONS HAD BEEN GIVEN TO HIM FOR HIS DETENTION, CAPTAIN GALVAO SAID: "NO ... MY INTERPRETATION IS THAT THE POWER TO KILL FREEDOM WHICH SALAZAR OWNS CAN REACH BEYOND THE FRONTIERS OF PORTUGAL AND BE FELT IN A SO-CALLED FREE COUNTRY SUCH AS ENGLAND."
    AN IMMIGRATION OFFICER LATER COURTEOUSLY TOLD HIM WHEN HIS FLIGHT TO GIBRALTAR WAS READY TO LEAVE. FROM GIBRALTAR HE WILL GO ON TO RABAT IN MOROCCO.
