  • Description

    A former defence lawyer for West German urban guerrillas has called for a neutral International enquiry into the deaths in prison last week of the three convicted leaders of the Baader-Meinhof group. Herr Otto Schily, former defence council for one of the three, Gudrun Ensslin, said only an independent body could clarify the many questions surrounding the deaths. Justice officials said Ensslin hanged herself, and that Andreas Baader and Jan-Carl Raspe shot themselves with pistols found later at their sides.

    SYNOPSIS: Herr Schily said that while the three were in Stammheim Prison they had been in the hands of the authorities, and in an interview with Roger Dunton of Visnews he said answers to the alternatives surrounding the deaths had to be given.
