Le Pen Refuses to Be Questioned by French Police on EU Expenses – Bloomberg

Le Pen Refuses to Be Questioned by French Police on EU Expenses – Bloomberg – The anti-euro candidate has refused an order from the European Parliament to repay about 336,000 euros ($356,000) in funds which the chamber says were used inappropriately. Le Pen has appealed the decision. Two aides to Le Pen were arrested Wednesday after investigators raided her National Front party’s headquarters earlier in the week as part of the probe into whether she improperly used European money to pay their salaries. Le Pen’s chief of staff was charged late on Wednesday as the candidate brushed off allegations that she misused European Parliament funds, saying the allegations were politically motivated. Her aide was charged for received misappropriated funds, according to the Paris prosecutor’s office. A second aide, Le Pen’s body guard, was also and then released without being charged.
