Of his 1982 conviction for living off immoral earnings, he commented: “I’ve made a lot of people happy. If I was an arms manufacturer or a cigarette manufacturer and my products killed millions of my clients, I’d have a bit of doubt about the whole thing. I was a freedom fighter. I believe in the right of adults to make their own decisions”.
