Ilich Ramírez Sánchez, captured in Sudan in 1994, serves in France a sentence to life imprisonment for three attacks in 1982 and 1983 resulting in 11 people dead and 190 injured
Venezuelan Minister of Foreign Affairs Nicolás Maduro promised on Wednesday to continue supporting "from the human point of view" Venezuelan terrorist Ilich Ramírez Sánchez. "Carlos," better known as "the Jackal," is serving a sentence to life imprisonment in France.
"From the human point of view, we will continue giving that support," Maduro said in an interview with state-run TV channel Venezolana de Televisión (VTV), Efe quoted.
Upon a proposal from Sánchez Ramírez's brother, Vladimir, to launch a campaign such as the Cuban lobby for five agents imprisoned in the United States, the Foreign Minister reported that they "keep in touch to back Ilich as a Venezuelan."
"He has undergone very difficult circumstances in France," he reasoned.

Why did Gerardo come to Caracas? One day he took the decision, handed the car keys to his father, gave him his share of the cloth business they both owned in San Cristóbal and kissed his wife and two sons goodbye. "He told us he was going to continue fighting for Venezuela," the wife says. That was in mid-2013. He has been imprisoned since May 8, 2014.
