France: MEP trolls UKIP's Nigel Farage with sign reading 'He's Lying To You'

France, Strasbourg
February 1, 2017 at 19:04 GMT +00:00 · Published

Labour member of the European Parliament, Seb Dance, raised a placard reading "He Is Lying To You" while former leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), Nigel Farage, was speaking at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, Wednesday. Farage commented on US President Donald Trump's travel ban against seven Muslim-majority countries.

Another member of the UKIP party, Bill Etheridge, wrote a complaint to the European Parliament President Antonio Tajani, saying that Dance used a 'defamatory personal remark'.

Trump's ban affects citizens of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. Trump has maintained that the restrictions should not be dubbed a 'Muslim ban,' despite it only being brought into effect for these seven countries, all of which have a majority Muslim population.

The travel restrictions will be implemented for 90 days for all people hailing from these seven countries, including legal permanent residents of the US. Additionally, there has been a 120-day ban on refugee admissions, and an indefinite halting of Syrian refugee admissions.
