PARIS – French President Nicolas Sarkozy isn't enchanted with a hot-selling voodoo doll of him and wants a judge to order it pulled from shelves.
"Nicolas Sarkozy: The Voodoo Manual" kit includes a handbook and 12 pins. The blue-colored doll shows Sarkozy's face on a body covered with some of his most famous — and infamous — quips.
It went on sale two weeks ago and tops the best-selling books list on Amazon.fr.
Sarkozy's lawyer argues that the president — like any French person — owns the right to his own image under the law. Publishing house K&B Editions says that humor is part of freedom of expression.
A Paris court heard the case Friday and will deliver its verdict Wednesday.
