Paris, Nov 22 (EFE) .- Marine Le Pen denounced today a political operation against his party, the National Front (FN), to which Société Générale (SG) has decided to close the accounts, something similar to what has happened to her, after HSBC has told her that she will not continue to accept her as a client.
"It is an attempt to drown an opposition movement", He stressed at a press conference Le Pen, in which he announced the formalization of lawsuits against SG, against its subsidiary Crédit du Nord and against HSBC.
Beyond that complaint before justice, he appealed to his nearly eleven million voters in the May presidential elections, warning them that these maneuvers are trying to "ruin" the party with the objective of "his disappearance."
"The financial oligarchies try to attack freedom of expression," said Le Pen.
In his opinion, there is no justification for the decisions taken by these entities, which until now have shielded themselves in bank secrecy, and in what is really behind "discrimination" for reasons policies.
"The situation of the FN is absolutely transparent," he said after having remembered that his accounts are audited, as those of all the political parties that are presented to the elections, and that with a view to the presidential and legislative elections of last spring had requested a loan, which was granted by a Russian bank after no bank French would like to give it.
According to the story of the leader of the French extreme right, SG communicated to them in summer that she was going to close the accounts of the movement, and that, like no other French entity agreed to work with the FN, resorted to the Bank of France, which appointed Crédit du Nord, according to regulatory obligations.
However, Crédit du Nord does not she does not even use checks, nor the receipt of donations by credit card or money received from her elected offices, so the president said that they are "deprived of (their) Income. "
In addition, this morning he said he had received a call from Thomas Vandeville, head of HSBC's private banking department, in which he told him that they would close his personal account "without any justification."
Le Pen said that, taking advantage of a meeting yesterday at the Elysée with the French president, Emmanuel Macron, he had given an account of the bank problems of the FN and had asked him to intervene as a guarantor of the institutions.
"It must ensure the free exercise of the action of political parties", stressed.
