An international terrorist who attacked Jewish targets in the 1970s hired a lawyer who represented Vichy collaborator Maurice Papon in the Vichy France official’s recent trial. The lawyer said he thinks he was hired by Carlos the Jackal, who is serving a life sentence in prison for some of his terrorist attacks, but still faces trial for several others, because “he seemed to have appreciated my attitude during the Papon trial.”
