French judicial police are questioning far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen’s bodyguard and chief of staff in relation to a probe into alleged misuse of EU funds to pay parliamentary assistants, her lawyer said on Wednesday.

Marcel Ceccaldi said that the affair was a “manipulation” aimed at destabilizing the National Front’s election campaign.

Le Pen has previously denied any wrongdoing.
