Serial killer Charles Sobhraj, aka “the Serpent”, has arrived in Paris

Published on :

Frenchman Charles Sobhraj, convicted of several murders in the 1970s in Asia, returned to France on Saturday morning after being released from prison in Nepal, where he spent nearly 20 years in detention.

He is back in France. The French serial killer Charles Sobhraj, 78, alias “The Serpent”, deported by the authorities of Nepal after having spent twenty years there in prison for the murder of two North American tourists, returned to Paris on Saturday December 24, according to an airport source.

Suspected of twenty murders in the 1970s in Asia, the man who inspired a series broadcast on Netflix arrived at Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle airport on board a plane from Doha, Qatar, and was immediately taken care of by the border police for “identity checks”, according to the same source, who specified that he was “neither wanted nor prosecuted” in France. Once these checks have been carried out, he will be able to leave the airport, she added.

Nicknamed the “bikini killer” in Thailand and “the Snake”, 78-year-old Charles Sobhraj has been released from prison in Nepal where he spent almost 20 years in detention. Nepal’s Supreme Court on Wednesday ordered the release of Charles Sobhraj citing his age, needing open-heart surgery, after serving 19 of the 20 years in prison he was last sentenced to. A decision in accordance with a Nepalese law authorizing the release of bedridden prisoners who have already served three quarters of their sentence.

On the plane taking him to Doha, where he was in transit on Friday evening, Charles Sobhraj told the AFP journalist that he was “innocent” of the crimes attributed to him.
