(EurActiv) — Relieved of his duties as leader of the National Front delegation in the European Parliament after calling for the “de-Islamification of France”, sources told AFP that Aymeric Chauprade is now the subject of a legal inquiry.
…Aymeric Chauprade posted this video on the Internet after the terrorist attacks in Paris, between 7 and 9 January.
In the passage under investigation, Chauprade said: “We are told that the majority of Muslims are peaceful. Of course, but so were the majority of Germans before 1933 and National Socialism.” He also called on the French people to “fight the Islamification of our country”.
The video, in which the MEP denounced a “powerful fifth column” in France that could “turn against us at any moment” triggered strong reactions in France and beyond.
NB – the video has English subtitles.
