French far-right MP stripped of EU parliamentary immunity

News Sources: May 10, 2011

The European Parliament stripped parliamentary immunity from French far-right MEP Bruno Gollnisch following a complaint of “incitement to racial hatred.”
French authorities will interview Gollnisch after asking for the move, following a complaint over an October 2008 press release issued by Rhone-Alpes regional authorities near Lyon, which Gollnisch led, that cited “the invasion of our land and the destruction of our culture and values” by Islam.
