  • France's Le Pen ordered to undergo psychiatric tests over IS tweets

Two hours later, the former French presidential candidate posted a copy of a court document online, in which a judge inquired whether psychological disorders were responsible for why she chose to post graphic tweets several years ago.

Le Pen, who has said the case against her is a violation of her freedom of expression, claims the government of France is employing the tactics of defamation that totalitarian regimes use to discredit political opponents in an attempt "to make them look insane".

"I thought I had seen it all, but no!" "For denouncing the horrors of [ISIS] by tweets the "justice system" has referred me for a psychiatric assessment. Just how far will they go?" she asked. She also posted an image of the court order on her Twitter account with the words: "It's genuinely STAGGERING".

She posted the images following the Paris terror attacks of November 2015, in which 130 people were killed, after a journalist compared her party to ISIS militants. Le Pen wrote on Twitter.

"This country is really starting to scare me". "She is a political personality but this is not a political decision", Jacky Coulon, national secretary of the magistrates union, reportedly told France Info radio.

"A prosecutor has ordered psychiatric tests on Marine Le Pen".

The images of violent acts carried out by Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) included photos of the lifeless body of American James Foley. "I'd like to see how the judge would try and force me do it", she said. The crime carries a prison term of up to three years in prison and a fine of 75,000 euros ($91,000), according to the report.

Another photo showed a man in an orange jumpsuit being run over by a tank, and a third showed a Jordanian military pilot being burned alive in a cage. She posted the images in response to a journalist's comparison between her far-right party and "Islamic State", which is also known as Daesh.

She later deleted the picture of Foley after a request from his family, saying she had been unaware of his identity, but she has denounced the case against her as a violation of her freedom of expression.
