They'll give him the French Citizenship for extraordinary services rendered and presto they won't extradite him anywhere.

He'll get sentenced to 6 months 'jail time' in St. Tropez like the french secret service people, who killed a photographer when sinking the Greenpeace boat.

Now if you're talking First person shooters, that's another story.

As always when people tell us, it's not about the money, it's about the principle, it's about the money.
