Zemmour’s lawyers have repeatedly said that the hate speech charges against him are baseless.
A Paris court has fined French presidential candidate Eric Zemmour 10,000 euros ($11,410) for remarks he made during a TV show in 2020 – the court ruled they were a form of hate speech.
Zemmour’s lawyer Olivier Pardo reportedly said his client reserved the right to appeal the judgement.
