As a French customs agent, Fievet had infiltrated drug trafficking organizations and while on duty was sentenced to eleven years of emprisonment in Canada. The film 'Gibraltar' directed by Julien Leclercq is based on his autobiographic novel, 'L'Aviseur', about his life as an informer for the customs in Gibraltar. Fievet, nearly 69, is currently working as a truck driver because he doesn't benefit any retirement pensions. He appealed after being dismissed in the first instance last April, following an action to determine the responsibility of the French State.
