“Madame Gala Renaud accuses the editors of Charlie Hebdo of misappropriating the money they had promised to give [the families of the slain journalists]. They announced that all proceeds from the sale of the “Survivors’ Issue” that came out after the attack would be handed over to the families of the victims, and that the donations would be used to publish new issues," Madame Ranaud's lawyer, Jean-Hubert Portejoie, said.
"It appears, however, that they had cheated both the families of their slain colleagues and just about everybody else by handing out 4 million euros and withholding over 10 million earned from the sale of that dedicatory issue.”
The Charlie Hebdo magazine is known for its satirical cartoons. The magazine became famous after in January 2015, its headquarters were attacked by terrorists, with 12 people getting killed. The attack was allegedly motivated by the magazine’s publication of cartoons depicting Prophet Muhammad.
