Marine Le Pen dis-invited from inquiry into far-right violence

A French parliamentary inquiry has cancelled the summoning of populist leader Marine Le Pen and her niece Marion Maréchal after Le Pen promised to reveal the extent of far-left violence directed towards her.

The parliamentary inquiry committee on the fight against extreme right-wing groups in France, which opened at the request of the far-left France Insoumise (Unsubmissive France) party, initially invited the populist pair to speak on their alleged connections to ultra-right extremist groups, Le Figaro reports.
