    Background: Former Portuguese President General Spinola said in Paris on Thursday (4 September) his visit to France from Brazil was strictly a private affair. As Communists demonstrated against him outside his hotel, a statement issued through the management said that the General had no political statements to make, amid reports he may be planning a political comeback.
    The statement issued by General Spinola said that he had come to France with the greatest of pleasure, and that he would like to reply with the same kindness with which the French Media had always treated him.
    He also said that he intended to return to Brazil in a few days. However, according to Reuter reporting from Paris, General Spinola was expected to meet emissaries from Portuguese political parties, who arrived discreetly in Paris earlier in the week.
    Meanwhile, the situation within Portugal remained fluid with attention centred on the Armed Forces where there was growing opposition to the appointment of former Prime Minister Vasco Goncalves to the post of Chief of Staff.
