Uri’s £50,000 plea for Paul
Psychic Increases cash support offer
By PAUL COFFEY
PSYCHIC guru Uri Geller is offering £50,000 from his personal fortune for information leading to the release of the hostages in Kashmir.
It is a £15,000 increase on his original offer of £35,000 and has been made according to Mr Geller, to “prove I am serious”.
Today, from his Berkshire home, he told the Post that he still believed the hostages – including Nottingham student Paul Wells – were alive.
And he said: “Fifty thousands pounds is a lot of money – especially in Kashmir.
“I’m hoping the reward will tempt someone to come forward with information about the hostages.”
Mr Geller, 50, who earlier this month won the support of Foreign Secretary Malcolm Rifkind in efforts to help free the hostages, also said he would be willing to speak to the men’s kidnappers.
“I will listen to them and take their message to any world leader,” he added.
He remains optimistic the four are still alive and says this comes from speaking to the parents of Paul and fellow Briton Keith Mangan.
Mr Geller said: “Parents have strong telepathy with their children.”
“I have spoken to the parents and they feel sure in their hearts that the hostages are alive.”
Vivian Wilkinson, from the Hostages in Kashmir Campaign, said today: “Uri’s offer is incredible.”
“We were lost for words when he told us about it.”
“Paul’s and Keith’s families are both delighted with his support; he has gone out of his way to help us.”
Paul’s dad Bob Wells is still in Kashmir trying to find out about his son who has been missing almost two years.

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
