The former leader of France’s far-right Front National, Jean Marie Le-Pen, was fined 30,000 euros on Wednesday for repeating his claim that the Nazi gas chambers in the Second World War were ‘a detail of history’.

His conviction in Paris for contesting crimes against humanity in April 2015 came on the same day that the 87-year-old was fined 5,000 euros by a court in Nice for comments he made about Roma people in 2013.
