On Wednesday EU Parliament officially began the procedure to lift the immunity of Marine Le Pen, French presidential candidate from the National Front party, according to Reuters.

Media earlier reported that French investigators, leading the case on possible embezzlement of financial resources from EU Parliament by National Front leader, demanded to lift Le Pen’s immunity.

It was informed that the "decision became judges’ reaction on Le Pen’s statement that she was not going to appear at their request to give testimony as she was protected with parliamentary immunity".
