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 group of some 60 Venezuelan economists from across the country and from different generations and backgrounds, has met regularly in the past couple of years and now has brought forth a document explaining the reasons of the current emergency and outlining specific proposals on how to address the serious economic crisis the country has plunged into over the last three years.
