 Israeli businessman tells how he was kidnapped in Brazil

Israeli businessman Moshe Benedek, in an interview with Israeli TV Channel 12, told the details of how he was abducted by criminals in Brazil.

Benedek said he left his office in Sao Paulo at 2:00 pm on Thursday for a lunch he had previously planned with his daughter. He did not come to dinner, and it turned out that he had been kidnapped.

“They moved me to the back seat and to keep me under their control, one of them hit me on the head with a gun. I bled a lot. Drops of blood fell from my face onto my clothes, and then I said to myself: “Okay, now I'm in their hands,” Benedek says of that day.

The kidnappers brought Benedek to an abandoned house, and before that they walked around the football field.

“To my surprise, I get out of the car covered in blood and see in front of me a typical Brazilian football field with children playing football. They lead me across the field to the ruined house, lower my head and put me in a room. They put me on a chair and immediately take off my shoes and put something on me so that I can’t move my hands, they put a mask on my face so that I can’t see,” recalls the businessman.

Moshe Benedek remarked: “I understood from them that it would be a problem for them to kill me. On the other hand, I have seen people with drugs, and when they point a gun at your head, any mistake can result in death. And when they are nervous – nervousness, drugs, stress and a gun are incompatible. And I realized that I was in a real plight.”

Almost 20 hours later, Moshe Benedek was released.

“If there is anything positive in this whole story is how many people think my life is important. This gives us the strength to continue living and doing good deeds,” he stressed.
