  • Description

    Chief Superintendent Joseph Manuel, and Chief Detective Inspector Robert Fenwick, invited to Sao Paulo by His Excellency Janio Quadros, Governor of Sao Paulo State, in order that they might give the benefit of their long experience to the study of police problems here, and to their solution, arrived unheralded at Congonhas Airport, Sao Paulo, on October 14th at 10AM.

    Their arrival, according to the air company, was to have been at 4 P.M. on Sunday, and at the expected hour a good gathering of the press, and high officials of the Sao Paulo Police, including H.M.E. Consul, were waiting to welcome them.

    However, we, having a different source of information, were on the airfield at 7 A.M. on Monday 14th. No Penair plane arrived, but around 10 A.M. we discovered our two V.I.Ps from Scotland Yard looking for a telephone, having descended from another plane to which they had transhipped in Rio. So B.C.Y.N.A. was their welcome committee, and we took our friends from the Yard to their 'digs' after taking a couple of shots of them writing for a taxi.

    The following morning they called on the Department of International Police, and after a short discussion with the officials, adjourned to the Palace, where they were briefed in their job by his Excellency Janio Quadros, who told them, in my hearing, that they were to have a free hand.

    We hope in due course to send you further news of their activities here.
