Car­los the Jackal on trial again in France

New Straits Times - - World -

Car­los the Jackal, the per­pe­tra­tor of head­line-grab­bing at­tacks in the 1970s and 1980s, goes on trial to­mor­row for the deadly bomb­ing of a busy shop, the Drug­store Publi­cis, more than 40 years ago. Car­los, 67, is a Venezue­lan whose real name is Ilyich Ramirez Sanchez. Ge­orges Hol­leaux, who rep­re­sents the two wid­ows of the men killed and 16 oth­ers af­fected, said they rel­ished the chance to fi­nally see Car­los in court. Car­los’s lawyer, Is­abelle Coutant-Peyre, said the trial was a waste of time and money.
