EU parliament attracts Le Pen immunity
strasbourg - The European Parliament has lifted the immunity of Front National headline Marine le Pen on Thursday. The French authorities therefore requested that they had called the mayor of Nice a jihadist's accomplice.
The withdrawal of parliamentary protection paves the way for criminal prosecution in France because of reproach and defamation. Earlier this year, parliament raised its immunity because, in 2015, it spread three shocking images of Islamic State atrocities via Twitter.
The French court also asked for waiver of Le Pens immunity because they paid Front National employees with EU money, while not working in the European Parliament but at the party office. That procedure is still ongoing.
The EU Parliament already takes part of the monthly salary and fees of the former presidential candidate (48). The chance is that they will be elected Sunday in the French parliament.
