France's Marine Le Pen condemns 2m-euro party funding block
French far-right leader Marine Le Pen says her National Rally party is being "Assassinated" by judges who blocked €2m of public funding for it. Ms Le Pen and seven RN colleagues are members of the French parliament. In a tweet on Monday Ms Le Pen said: "Two judges have decided, in violation of the presumption of innocence, without any court ruling, to assassinate France's leading opposition party." Ms Le Pen said seizing the RN's public subsidy "Puts democracy at risk - it's also a matter for all the parties". In March Ms Le Pen got the party's approval to change its name to National Rally, part of a rebranding drive in which she has sought to cleanse it of the taint of racism.
