BNP Legal Officer Says Arson Attack ‘Not A Crime’

by | 29th, December 2009

LEE Barnes is the BNP’s legal officer. He hears that “Sangatte II”, a French centre for immigrants has been hit by arsonists. This is an illegal act. He writes on his blog ‘The French Rise Up‘:

When governments do not listen to the people, then the people will rise up against the government.

This is not a crime, this is an act of National Liberation.

Arson sounds like a crime to us. Or is he saying that people “rising up” is not a crime, rather than arson? It seems, at best, unclear.

Mr Barnes is the BNP’s legal officer. If he says setting fire to a building is “not a crime”, you’d expect him to be versed in the law. If a legal brain is reading this, can they tell us about the state of French law? And then explain how the BNP stands for the rule of law?
