The case of Bernie Ecclestone's mother-in-law headed to court this week.

Accompanied by Ecclestone's wife Fabiana Flosi, Aparecida Schunck attended the court session, according to Brazilian television SPTV.

Schunck was successfully rescued in July after a nine day ordeal, masterminded by Ecclestone's former helicopter pilot who was demanding a ransom of $37 million, while threatening to behead her.

According to SPTV, a judge in Sao Paulo convened the three hour hearing on Thursday which was attended by Schunk, Flosi and the seven who are accused of carrying out the kidnapping.

The session will reportedly continue when defence witnesses are called, and verdict is not expected until early 2017.

"Today was a very difficult day," Ecclestone's Brazilian wife Flosi said.

"We had to hear details of what happened, and remember the despair of those days when my mother was missing," she added.

"Now we just hope that the judiciary can continue the work of the police and give deserved and appropriate penalties for this crime," said Flosi.
