    You’re welcome, but one clarification in front of hundreds of misinformation articles isn’t doing anything..
    But if you dig into it, especially looking at cases in which immunity as MEP wasn’t revoked you’ll be amazed..
    You know all this is doing her a favour anyway because she risks absolutely nothing in this court case, prompted by a pro-sharia organisation in france. And the thing will drag on for months or years and at the end she’ll be cleaned of all charges.
    This stunt by the EU is just to generate bad press for her and so that in one year they can keep on saying “le pen has been in a racism case for which we revoked her immunity”..
