Marine Le Pen loses EU parliament immunity over ISIS tweets

The European Parliament has revoked the immunity of France’s right-wing presidential candidate, Marine Le Pen, for posting graphic photos of Islamic State victims on Twitter.

The decision to lift immunity from Le Pen was taken by the majority of members in the plenary of the EU Parliament, Reuters reported.

In December of 2015, Le Pen tweeted three graphic photographs of killings carried out by Islamic State (IS, formerly known as ISIS/ISIL), accompanied by the text “Daesh [Arabic term for IS] is THIS!” The tweets had been a response to journalist Jean-Jacques Bourdin, who compared Le Pen’s nationalist rhetoric to that of the Islamic terrorist group.

The picture showed the body of James Foley, who Islamic state beheaded in August of 2014. His family then said they had been “deeply disturbed by the unsolicited use of Jim for Le Pen’s political gain.”

Ludovic de Danne, the secretary general of the ENF (Europe of Nations and Freedom), the political bloc Le Pen leads in the European parliament, told RT that he is confident Le Pen “would win any potential trial in this case if it ever happens.”

“It’s a poor way of the EU globalists and an easy hypocritical excuse to target Marine Le Pen,” de Danne said, adding “like for the other attacks it’s the same maneuvers like against Brexit and Trump. The people are not blind anymore.”

    Stripping Le Pen of immunity ‘EU is interfering in French internal affairs’ – UKIP MEP


    Marine Le Pen’s loss of EU Parliament immunity is going to help her get elected: French people and other Europeans see it as a plot by the establishment to silence her, it shows the EU Parliament is undemocratic, says David Coburn, UKIP MEP.

    French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has had her EU Parliamentary immunity revoked. The decision follows the second round of voting held by EU Parliament lawmakers. Le Pen may now face prosecution for tweeting pictures of Islamic State violence. In her latest interview for a French TV channel, Le Pen called the allegations politically motivated.

    According to David Coburn, Le Pen has a point saying that.

    This is an absolute scandal – the lights are going out all over Europe on freedom of speech. And the European Parliament which continues to maintain …the mother of European democracy has obviously given up that responsibility. The idea that you can stop people speaking freely is absolutely wrong,” he adds.

    According to Coburn, “the Socialists always hate freedom of speech, it is completely against their philosophy. And they were pushing for this, and you could see them all cheering for this. And that is a scandal. The Socialists and the European Parliament do not want freedom of speech.”
