Sarkozy wants to move Camus's remains - son says no

President Nicolas Sarkozy wants to transfer the remains of the writer Albert Camus to one of the most hallowed burial places in France, but the plan has run into opposition from the Nobel laureates son, who does not think his father would have wanted the honor.

Camuss son, Jean, says interring his fathers remains at the Panthon, the Paris monument to some of the great men and women of France, would be contrary to his fathers wishes and does not want to have his legacy put to work in the service of the state, Le Monde quoted an unidentified intimate of Mr. Camuss as saying.

Jean Camuss sister, Catherine Camus, who manages her fathers estate, is prepared to give her approval and has spoken with Mr. Sarkozy on the subject, Le Monde said.
