The "anointed deputies" in the Andrews group were Nicola
Polinuk, June and Max French, Wayne Elliot, and Anne Ladas who was in charge
of the delegation, having been to Libya previously.
b) Chapter 3.3.2
The NPC group flew from Rome to Malta. There they were placed on
a boat later described by the group as a "converted prison ship"
which went from Malta to Libya. Gerry Lincoln, James Dawson, Wolfgang Droege,
and Grant Bristow roomed together in what was called a "bottom-dungeon".
The right wing racists had to be separated from the left wing anti-fascists
for the former's protection. After the ship docked, the NPC group were
not allowed to disembark and only after several days of complaining were
they allowed to reside in Camp Kadhafi some miles from Tripoli.
c) Chapter 3.3.3
Droege wanted to stay on the plane and fly back to Rome, but the
aircraft Captain told him either to get off or be charged with piracy.
The NPC members were arrested and some received threats from US officers.
They were strip-searched and had their body cavities probed for contraband.
d) Chapter 3.3.4
Tensions were high in the NPC after the trip to Libya, particularly
among those who had gone there. The entire group had worried about being
attacked in Libya, they were arrested in Chicago and they were subjected
to humiliating interviews and body cavity searches; people were generally
tired and fed up.
e) Chapter 5.9.4
In March 1993, according to one media account, Bristow had a part
in the production of the "Animal Series #2" flyer. Specifically,
he had added the names and home addresses of anti-racists used on the poster,
and had photocopied the document at Al Overfield's house. The "Animal
Series #2" flyer, was a poster combining the body of an ape with the
head of a gorilla. The Heritage Front flyer is actually a doctored reproduction
of a much earlier American racist poster.
1.) That I am the person referred to in the above text and in such have
knowledge to the matters stated herein. or that I have first hand knowledge
of the events that took place in the above text.
2.) That I know the following to be a false statement in the above text corrected by me as follows.
a: I was never deemed an "appointed
deputy", as a matter of fact, I had no power or position in the
Nationalist Party of Canada, at this time or ever.
b: Right wing racists were not separated form left-wing anti-fascists. In fact members of our own group were split up between two different floors. Rooms were assigned to us as a group then we decided amongst ourselves who would stay where. When the ship docked in Tripoli, the group was not prevented from disembarking. It was not until members of a left-wing group recognised certain members of our delegation that had been on the previous Libya trip and then prevented us from getting on a bus that was to take us sightseeing. This is when we were moved as a group to a compound.
c: No NPC members were arrested except for Wolfgang Droege. I never received a threat from U.S. officials nor had anyone told me that they had. I was not strip searched nor had my body cavities probed for contraband. Many of us were close friends and no one mentioned strip searches in any degree.
d: There were no humiliating interviews or body cavity searches. I personally did not experience this nor was I ever told by anyone on the trip that they experienced such things then or to this day.
e: Elisse Hategan had just been served with papers accusing her of defamatory Libel. She came over to Nicola's house and was upset. She said that Grant Bristow wanted her to take the blame because he said it was her first offence, and she would probably get off. Elisse said Grant told her not to say where she got the flyer from.
