Swiss Leery of Learys
(ZNS) Doctor Timothy Leary--the man the "staight press" loves to describe as the "High Priest of LSD--is now a man without a country.
Uncle Leary and his partner, Rosemary, were informed by the Swiss government last week that they must leave Switzerland by the end of October. The Learys had been seeking permanent political asylum in Switzerland--But that request has been denied.
The Learys did win one political/ legal battle in Switzerland, however; the Swiss government, while denying the Learys the right to settle in Switzerland, said that it would not extradite the comrades to the United States. The US Government had been attempting to force Leary to California because of his escape from a prison in San Luis Obispo last year.
The Learys are expected to return to Algeria, which grants asylum to American "Fugitives." Brother Tim and sister Rosemary stayed in Algeria before going to Switzerland.
