MADRID - The daughter of a businessman allegedly kidnapped by extreme-left terrorist group GRAPO in 1995 yesterday implored the three members of the group accused of his abduction to reveal his whereabouts.

The daughter of Publio Cordón made the request at the first day of their trial - taking place in the High Court - asking them to reveal his location, "so I can bury him 13 years later." The two men and one woman facing the charges denied any involvement in Cordón's disappearance.

However, during yesterday's hearing, a convicted member of GRAPO (the First of October Anti-fascist Resistance Group), who was testifying as a witness, stated that at the time of the kidnapping, the government of ex-Prime Minister José María Aznar of the Popular Party had contacted the terrorists to "begin a political negotiation."
