Marine Le Pen's Party Accused of Fraud

Recently, allegations against Marine Le Pen's Party, the National Front, has broken stating that her party may have taken up to 5 million euros from the EU illegally. Usually, MEP's, (Members of the European Parliment) are given money from the EU as a form of salary and in this case, the National Front was given money to give it's MEP's their salary, however, there is reason to believe that the National Front may have taken more money than the amount needed, in order to help the party's own interests starting from 2012 till 2017. Le Pen has publicly denied these allegations and refused to also come for summons, stating her parliamentary immunity as an MEP.
