French far-right presidential candidate Eric Zemmour is being targeted with legal action by gay rights groups, who say he denied that homosexuals were rounded up and deported during the Nazi occupation of France in World War II. Six gay rights associations told AFP on Wednesday that their criminal complaint for “denial of crimes against humanity” stemmed from Zemmour’s campaign manifesto, “France has not said its final word,” published in September. In it, Zemmour agreed with another politician who claimed that deportations of homosexuals to concentration camps were a “legend”. Zemmour “distorted history to support his homophobic positions,” the associations alleged in their complaint.
