French far-right leader, Marine Le Pen says she's been ordered to submit a psychiatric evaluation. The ruling coming from Court in response to graphic images, she posted on Twitter of Islamic State executions three years ago. It included the beheading of US journalist, James Foley. Le Pen posted images of the court order Thursday.
The tribunal itself, says assessments are a normal part of investigations. Le Pen was placed under formal investigation in March on suspicion of dissemination violent images. The far right leader tweeted her response on Thursday saying, for having denounced the horrors of Daesh in tweets, justice is submitting me to a psychiatric evaluation.
How far will they go? Her criticism is in line with the party's narrative that it's persecuted by judges, as part of an attempt by the establishment to undermine it politically.>>
