French police raid headquarters of Marine Le Pen's National Front Party

French police were searching the headquarters of Marine Le Pen‘s National Front party west of Paris on Monday in relation to a probe into alleged misuse of European Union funds to pay parliamentary assistants, an FN official told Reuters.

“It looks on the face of it like a media operation whose goal is to disturb the course of the presidential campaign,” the National Front said in a statement.

The European parliament has said that, in her role as French National Front leader, Le Pen had during the 2011-12 legislature paid party staff with EU funds, which EU rules say should be used only to pay EU lawmakers’ assistants.
