Manuel Noriega is suing publisher of video games

The BBC has the story of former Panama ruler Manuel Noriega suing over his likeness in a video game:

The ex-military ruler is seeking lost profits and damages after a character based on him featured in Activision's 2012 title Black Ops II.

The 80-year-old is currently serving a jail sentence in Panama for crimes committed during his time in power, including the murder of critics.

In Activision's video game, Noriega initially helps the CIA capture a Nicaraguan terrorist, but later turns on the Americans and is hunted himself.

In reality, Noriega did work as a CIA informant before the agency broke ties with him. After the US became concerned about his violent rule, President George Bush ordered the invasion of Panama in 1989, which resulted in his capture.
