France's National Rally links to violent far-right group revealed

Undercover investigation exposes close ties between high-ranking National Rally figures and anti-Muslim far-right group.

Al Jazeera's Investigative Unit has exposed close links between high ranking figures in Marine Le Pen's National Rally and a violent French far-right movement that advocates for the expulsion of Muslims from Europe.

A new documentary, broadcast on Sunday, shows senior National Rally politicians mingling with Generation Identity (GI) activists at private bar that functions as the group's headquarters in the city of Lille, and expressing support for GI policies, including "remigration" - a programme to send non-European families to their ancestral homelands.

In a secretly filmed conversation in March, Nicolas Crochet, Le Pen's former accountant and key ally, told our undercover reporter that the National Rally, formerly known as the National Front, would introduce "remigration" if it came to power.

"Yes it will happen. If we win, it will happen," he said.
