Devils Advocate

Devils Advocate Fascinated by evil and with a talent for breaking taboos, Jacques Verges is known as 'The Devil's Advocate'. Believing that even the worst criminals need a lawyer, Verges enjoys fighting on the dark side.
"A lawyer who refuses to defend an accused person is like a doctor who would refuse to treat an AIDS patient because he is against certain sexual practices." Eighty-three year old Verges finds wrong-doers a challenge and he's determined to understand their motives. "I fight for the dignity of man. In every man there is a remnant of humanity." His latest client is Khieu Samphan, the former head of state in the Khmer Rouge regime.
