The decision was taken by a cross-party committee in charge of the internal fùnctioning of the assembly, after a reqùest from the aùthorities to lift Le Pen’s parliamentary immùnity over a crime that carries ùp to three years in prison.
The leader of the National Front, who ran a failed campaign for president this year, in 2015 tweeted three pictures of IS atrocities, including one of James Foley, an American journalist beheaded by the extremists.
