August 1, 2016

Brazilian police reported on the rescuing from the kidnappers a mother-in-law of Bernie Ecclestone. A 67-year-old woman was kidnapped on Friday, according to the São Paolo police. A special squad freed Aparecida Schunck, the details of an operation are unknown.

Mother-in-law of Formula 1 chief Bernie Ecclestone is now free: from the last Friday a 67-year-old Aparecida Schunck had been held by the kidnappers. Mrs. Schunck is the mother of Bernie Ecclestone’s wife (they married in 2012).

The anti-kidnapping division of the police in São Paolo got a call from the F1 chief, who told about an unexpected situation upon arriving in Brazil. According to the police, Aparecida Schunck was being held by two men on the outskirts of the city.

The kidnapping is one of the biggest problems in São Paulo, the police even has its special division, which is dealing with such kind of criminal cases. Being a large Brazil city and the centre of commerce, São Paulo is suffering from kidnappers who demand a ransom for kidnapped people. As a rule, they are rich or famous people, and last Friday mother-in-law of Bernie Ecclestone became another criminals’ target.
