Former Portuguese leader,
Spinola, returns from exile

LISBON, Portugal P -M
Former President Antonio de
Spinola. the general whose book
inspired the Portuguese revolu-
tion, returned from Brazilian
exile yesterday to military de-
tention and Communist de-
nunciation.
A military police statement
said Spinola was taken to Cax-
ins military prison outside Lis-
bon, where he was questioned
by a military judge. A police
spokesman said Spinola was
not under arrest but that there
was a warrant out for him in
connection with his alleged role
in a March 1975 rightist coup
attempt.
THE PRO - SOVIET Portu-
gnese Commonist party de-
manded in a statement that
Spinola he tried for terrorism
and antigovernment consniracy.
The two-week-old Socialist mi-
noritv goernment pleaded for
calm.

reiros sole denuty of the far-

Spinola's trial as a "fascist and

was backed by all in the 262-
seat legislature except Barrei-
ros and the 40-member Com-
nunist delegation, which ab-
stained.
A top Spinola aide expressed
confidence that the general
would be freed in the moderate
iolitical climate now prevail-
ing in Portugal. The aide said
Spinola's wife, who returned
from exile two months ago, had
visited Caxias and it was "ex-
pected he will be sent home."
THE MILITARY statement
said the judge would have 48
hours to decide what to do with
Spinola.
Adelino da Palma Carlos,
Spinola's lawyer, said the ex-
nresident had already been re-
leased from Caxias following
several hours of routine ques-
tioning, but this could not be
officially confirmed.
Aides said Spinola, 66, want-
ed only to spend his remaining
years in his homeland and
would stay out of politics.
But the mere presence of
the monocled, flamboyant ora-
tor was likely to inflame feel-
ings on both sides of the un-
easv left-right truce that has
nermitted a middle-road Social-
ist government to emerge.
"PORTUGAL and the
Future," Spinola's book criti-
tizina Portuguese colinial wars
in Africa, served as a mani-
festo for the jinior officers who
overtbrev ,a half - century - old
rightist dictatorship in April
1974.
Spinola became president
but, as the country veered left,
was forced to resign six months
later amid differences with
leftists over how fast the coun-
try should abandon its former
colonies.
Spinola and close associates
fled Portugal after about 100

followers were arrested as al-
leged plotters in March 1975.
The Spinolists were later re-
leased and Spinola broke up an
opposition group he had form-
ed in Brazil, saying the group
was no longer needed.
S P I N 0 L A announced
plans to return to Portugal in
July but did not appear. This
time he flew in on a Trans
World Airlines flight from New
York, apparently with the bles-
sing of Portugal's new military
strongman, President Antonio
Ramalho Eanes.
Witnesses said he was met by
police and top army officers,
who escorted him to Caxias
prison. Many top Spinola aides,
contacted by telephone, said
they had not known the gener-
al was returning yesterday.
Lisbon, still plastered with
posters left over from two
years of political turbulence,
learned the controversial fig-
sre was back through a gov-
ernment radio broadcast sev-
eral hours later.
GEN.,-EANES once said Spi-
nola had failed his country in
connection with the unsuccess-
ful rightist coip in March 1975.
He also said Spinola was free
to return home, like any Por-
tiurese citizen.
S p i n o I a ' s arrival co-
incided with an apparent resur-
gence of the -right, including
establishment of new conserva-
tive newspapers and a leaflet
camnaign to purge leftists on
the Revolotionary Council, the
military's political organ.
The two - week - old cabinet
of Socialist Premier Mario
Soares includes several form-
er Spinola associates, among
them Interior Minister Man-
iel da Costa Braz and Defense
Minister Mario Firmino Mi-
guel.
