Note Relating to the Designation of an Objective

The 1st of August 1958




Relating to the designation of an objective


SCHULZ LESUM, a German subject and resident of TETOUAN for several years, is the chief of an organisation facilitating the desertion of French legionnaires.


The Chief of Defense Staff has proposed to S.D.E.C.E. that this individual, whose action is harmful to French interests in Algeria, be neutralized.


Following a reconnaissance mission, a commercial contact has been established with SCHULZ LESUM. This contact, maintained by correspondence, should allow us to attract the objective in a favourable location in Morocco and to treat him discreetly by using an undetectable toxic with delayed effects.


It is asked to designate this individual as an objective.
