    FILM FROM PARIS, DEC 3, SHOWS THE PERE-LACHAISE CEMETERY WHERE ON DEC 2 THE MORTAL REMAINS OF DOMINICA'S EX-DICTATOR RAFAEL LEONIDAS TRUJILLO MOLINA WERE INTERRED IN A TEMPORARY GRAVE WHILE CEMETERY GUARDS KEPT ALL SPECTATORS OUT OF THE WAY.

    RAFAEL TRUJILLO WAS KILLED LAST MAY. AFTER THE OUSTING OF THE TRUJILLO FAMILY FROM POWER IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, RAFAEL'S BODY WAS SECRETLY FLOWN OUT OF SAN DOMINGO, NOV 15. UPON ARRIVAL AT ORLY AIRPORT, PARIS, IT WAS HELD UP FOR TWO DAYS BECAUSE OF MISSING DOCUMENTS BEFORE BEING TRANSFERRED TO THE CEMETERY.

    AT CONSIDERABLE COST, THE TRUJILLO FAMILY HAS BOUGHT A PLOT AT PERE-LACHAISE. ONCE A PROPER TOMB AND MONUMENT HAS BEEN ERECTED ON THE PLOT, THE BODY WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE TEMPORARY GRAVE TO ITS FINAL RESTING-PLACE.
