The European Parliament lifted, on Wednesday, the parliamentary immunity of far-right National Front founder Jean-Marie Le Pen and of a fellow party member Mylène Troszczynski, following the request of the French judiciary.
The French judiciary accused them of “public defamation” of racist nature and “incitement to racial hatred or violence”.
Le Pen, an MEP and honorary president of the party led by his daughter Marine, is being investigated for making racist remarks in 2009.
He said immigrants or people of immigrant origin were behind 90 percent of crimes.
Meanwhile, Mylène Troszczynski is also being investigated for a Twitter post in September 2015.
The post was a photograph of fully veiled women gathered at a family allowance department, but the image was deemed to have been a fake.
An Algerian news website aims at covering all the country’s territory through providing objective and positive image, focusing the most on breaking news.
