  • Description

    Mrs Edith Irving - wife of the author of the controversial biography on millionaire recluse Howard Hughes - has become the first person to be arrested in the case.

    She appeared at the Federal Court House in New York charged with being fugitive from Switzerland.

    Swiss officials seek to have Mrs Irving extradited to face charges there of counterfeiting, forgery and larceny. All the charges arise from Mrs Irving's handling of a cheque for 650-thousand dollars - which Irving was supposed to hand to Hughes as payment for information in the book, which Howard Hughes now claims to be a fraud.

    After her appearance in the New york court, Mrs Irving was released on 250-thousand dollars bail. Meanwhile, Mr Irving was approached by newsmen at a hotel in New York.
