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.

A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
