paris - Against Navy Le Pen of the right front National Front in France, a formal investigation has begun due to possible abuse of European money intended for staff of members of the European Parliament. She is suspected of breach of confidence, reports French media on Friday on behalf of French judicial sources.
Le Pen would have paid Front National employees with EU money, while not working in the European Parliament but at the party agency. Le Pen denies the accusation.
Navy Le Pen lost in the French presidential election of Emmanuel Macron. At the recent parliamentary elections, she was elected at the French National Assembly.
