Brazilian police rescue Ecclestone’s mother-in-law from kidnappers

Brazilian law enforcement agents stormed a hideout near Sao Paulo yesterday and freed the kidnapped mother-in-law of F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone, police said.

Aparecida Schunk was found safe and police arrested two men.

Sao Paulo’s Anti-Kidnap squad “freed the mother-in-law of Bernie Ecclestone,” police said in a one-paragraph statement. “She was unharmed. Two men were arrested at the hideout near the city of Cotia. The operation continues.”

Sao Paulo police did not comment further on the operation or the kidnapping. But local news reports said they were searching for other members of the gang.

The 67-year old woman was kidnapped on 22 July and her captors asked for 120 million reais (€33.3m)., according to reports in a leading Brazilian news magazine.

Mrs Schunk is the mother of Fabiana Flosi, a 38-year old marketing executive who met Mr Ecclestone at the 2009 Brazilian Grand Prix.
