Frenchman linked to far-right kidnapping accused of terrorism – .


PARIS – A former politician who called for the overthrow of the French government has been accused of terrorism in connection with what authorities have called a far-right plot to attack vaccination centers, a Masonic lodge and other targets .

Rémy Daillet-Wiedemann was already accused of having organized the international kidnapping at the QAnon of a girl in the name of the mother of the child, who had lost custody.

He was jailed in eastern France in this case when new allegations emerged involving many members of the same far-right circle of his supporters.

While searching for the girl, who was eventually recovered safely in Switzerland, counterterrorism investigators realized that the kidnapping involved many people they had placed under surveillance for unrelated far-right extremism. .

Daillet was in voluntary exile in Malaysia at the time, but was eventually forced to return to France and was arrested immediately upon his return.

Daillet’s lawyer, Jean-Christophe Basson-Larbi, called his client a political prisoner. He said Daillet only called for a peaceful end to the political system and retained his faith in French justice despite the charges against him.

He has pledged to run for president in France.

Daillet was charged on Friday.
