The killing, according to the leaflet, was carried out by the Commando Pierre Overney, a unit named for a militant Maoist who was killed in a clash outside the Renault auto manufacturing plant in 1972 by a Renault guard. The guard himself was later murdered in revenge.
After listening carefully overnight to reports from witnesses to the [Georges Besse] murder, the police also said they now believe that Besse was killed by two young women wearing raincoats and speaking French.
Besse, in fact, had little connection with arms or, in fact, capitalism, although Renault does own more than 40% of American Motors in the United States. But Besse himself, as the chairman of a nationalized corporation, was a salaried employee of the government, not a capitalist.
