Terrorist Carlos the Jackal sues French channel over television drama

Breaking News

Ilich Ramírez Sánchez, for years the world's most wanted terrorist, is suing a Parisian production company over a three-part television drama he claims could violate his "biographical image".

With the help of his wife, a French lawyer whom he married in prison, Sánchez has demanded that the producers hand over the master copy of the footage for her to check for errors and potentially make changes before it is broadcast on the French Canal+ channel, the Guardian reports.

Better known as Carlos the Jackal, Sánchez once claimed, in front of the television cameras, to have killed more than 1,500 people in the pursuit of Palestinian liberation.

But the Venezuelan revolutionary, serving life imprisonment for the murder of two French intelligence officials and their informant in 1975, recently seems to have decided to shun the media.
