Former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega has a message for the publishers of a popular video game that features a mission to capture him: You owe me money.
In a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Tuesday, the 80-year-old once known as one of Latin America's most powerful strongmen accused the Activision Blizzard video game company of harming his reputation with "Call of Duty: Black Ops II."
Noriega - convicted of drug trafficking, money laundering and killing political opponents - is serving out a prison sentence in Panama,where he was extradited in 2011.
He argues in the lawsuit that his portrayal "as a kidnapper, murderer and enemy of the state" in the 2012 video game damaged his reputation. The company used his image and name in order to make make money, the lawsuit says, therefore he's entitled to a share of the profits.
"Plaintiff was portrayed as an antagonist as the culprit of numerous fictional heinous crimes, creating the false impression that defendants are authorized to use plaintiff's image and likeness," the lawsuit says.
Activision Blizzard did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
