While the trial of Jean-Marie Le Pen in the affair of the European parliamentary assistants of the FN is due to open in September, the state of health of the former president of the FN party ;far right worried, to the point of questioning his participation in the appearance.

On September 30, the National Front's trial for embezzlement of European funds begins. Although summoned to appear, Jean-Marie Le Pen will ultimately not be part of the party, the fault of a state of health which is not improving.

Indeed, according to Le Télégramme, the former president of the party, already the victim of a heart attack in spring 2023 , is nothing more than a shadow of himself. "Mr. Le Pen can no longer move around and his faculties are considerably impaired”, his lawyer declared last March. Since then, the nonagenarian has been placed under legal protection, the equivalent of guardianship, at the request of his family.

"He is very tired"

This Wednesday, July 3, the Paris judicial court therefore determined, with the help of medical experts, that the protection measure enjoyed by Jean-Marie Le Pen could exempt him from a court appearance in the fall.
