Paris attacks suspect suing France … wait, come again?

In another surrealist turn of events, Salah Abdeslam (the prime suspect of the Paris attacks) is suing the French prosecutor, because the latter publicly announced that Abdeslam said that he meant to blow himself up but backed out, during questioning. Wasn’t that sort of a given!? I agree that all defendants have the right to the best legal council they can get, and procedure needs to be followed. But this is a bit audacious, to be honest. How did he get one of the best and most expensive lawyers in the country, is what I’d like to know.
