"This statement is "not only ridiculous and untrue," but "slanderous," the philologist, psychoanalyst and writer of Bulgarian origin, who has been living in France for half a century, told the weekly edition.

"Somebody wants to hurt me," she added.

The journal publishes on its website the document, which states that she was recruited in June 1971 under the name Sabina.
