Angolans testify against
brutal white mercnre

Television viewing tonight

LUANDA, Angola f') -- The
Marxist government's first wit-
ness yesterday pointed out
"cowboy Callan", a British sub-
ject, as a murderer who terror-
ized his town, and then pointed
to American Daniel Gearhart
as the mercenary he saw
"threatening an Angola sold-
ier with death."
Callan, in handcuffs, wore his
habitual bored smirk as Fer-
nando Baires singled himo at'
among the 13 white mercenar-
ies on trial. The American from
Kensington, Md. seemed stun-
ned and confused,
ON. THE FIFTH day of the
show trial of 13 white mer-
cenaries the mostly black
spectators murmured with ex-
citement as the witness, who
described himself as a driver,
made the identification of the
two white prisoners and testi-
fied that the mercenary band

robbed he bank in Sao Salva-
dor and looted the town of
trucks, tractors and other
equipment.
He said that Callan, a Cy-
prus - born British citizen
whose real name is Costas
Georgiou, with a pistol on each
hip, swaggered into a bar in
the north Angolan town and
yanked up the trousers of all
the young Angolans drinking
beer to determine whether they
were deserters from the losing
pro-West FNLA forces wear-
ing uniforms, underneath.
"lie kicked two lying on the
floor to get them up," Baires
testified, 'turned them against
he wall and began beating
them over the head with a
hand grenadae."
THE WITNESS said he later
saw Callan, at a distance of 60
yards, fire his gun "and a man
fell down. I knew he died be-
cause his family went to the

governor for the body to bury
him."
The witnesses said an old
man told him of a valley at
nearby Maquela with many
bodies. "Because of the smell,
I covered up my nose. There
were 16 bodies there. I count-
ed them: 14 whites and two
blacks."
Four mercenaries already
told the court how Callan or-
dered the massacre of 14 of his
men who wanted out.
The spectators murmured
disapproval when the mulatto
presiding judge lectured a black
witness for giving a sarcastic
answer to Cesner.
Earlier the same witness said
he thought he was "in a peo-
ple's court not a Fascist court"
when the prosecutor tried to
cut down his propaganda spiel
on the "happy dancing people
who greeted the MPLA victory"
over the mercenaries.
