Frances National Front Founder Jean-marie Le Pen Hospitalized

19

PARIS – Jean-Marie Le Pen, the former leader of France’s far right National Front party, has been hospitalized for exhaustion ahead of a trial in which he stands accused of inciting homophobia, a source to him said on Wednesday.

The politician – father of Marine Le Pen, who later took up his mantle at the head of the National Front and came second in last year’s presidential election – will turn 90 next week.

He was admitted to hospital near Paris on Tuesday, and “should normally leave on Monday,” one of his advisers said.
