Aids to French Presidential Candidate taken into Custody

In a report by Reuters news agency today, French National Front presidential candidate Marine Le Pen’s body guard, Thierry Legier, and chief of staff, Catherine Griset were taken into custody. The report states the pair have been taken into custody for questioning over the use of European Union funds to pay parliamentary assistants. The conservative Le Pen denounced the move and stated that the French people, “can tell the difference between genuine scandals and political dirty tricks.” The two are being held due to an investigation by the European Parliament demanding Le Pen repay the money.
