Mr Hermant famously revealed the existence of the DPS, or Département Protéction et Sécurité - a secret paramilitary group inside the FN in the late 1990s. Its mission was to protect FN officials, conduct “intelligence” operations and “infiltrate and manipulate the enemy” – namely anti-racism groups or youth gangs in the French suburbs to foment unrest in the hope it would boost FN support.
A member for six years, Mr Hermant fell out with the FN after, he claims, being sent on a failed mercenary mission to Congo-Kinshasa that ended in him being jailed and later pardoned by president Denis Sassou N’Guesso. Furious at being abandoned by his FN masters, Mr Hermant went to the press about the party’s secret “Pretorian guard” in 2001.
In custody on separate charges of arms trafficking since late January, Mr Hermant is accused of illegally reconverting decommissioned weapons – some used as film props - from Slovenia to fire live ammunition and selling these on to collectors but also French gangsters.
The same type of reactivated arms are thought to have been used by brothers Saïd and Chérif Kouachi, the gunman who killed 12 at the offices of Charlie Hebdo, the satirical magazine.

Now here is an interesting piece of information, i have not heard before:
French Police is currently investigating a man. suspicions are that he delivered arms to the guy who hold hostages in a jewish supermarket during the Charlie Hebdo attack.
Claude Hermant is the name of the alleged suspect. Does not sound arabic/muslim?
Well, here's the juicy part:
- a member of the right wing Front National
- ex paramilitary, mercenary
- member of the DPS - a secret paramilitary section of the FN back in the 90ies. The DPS' function was to 'protect politicians' and 'Infiltrate and manipulate the enemy'. (aka stir fecal matter up in the Banlieues to further the right wing agenda.)
- last but not least he was or is a police informer.
DWN (in german)
Le figaro (french)
Off course the guy is innoent until proven guilty.
To me this sounds all like a right wing complott, maybe even with the cops in on it.
Create a false flag attack, blame it on muslims, profit from the resulting anti-muslim hatred.
It's interesting to see the developement in this, espiecially since its elections in France, and Marine LePen, the head of the FN is profiting big off subjects like terrorism and fugitives.
Sorry i could not find an english news article about it - feel free to add, when you find one.
Let me know, what you think about this story.
One of the Brussels attackers was detained in Gaziantep (in southern Turkey close to the Syrian border) and then deported” to the Netherlands, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters about Ibrahim El Bakraoui. Turkey said it warned both Belgium and the Netherlands that Ibrahim was a “foreign terrorist fighter.” Dutch authorities later allowed him to go free because Belgian authorities could not establish any ties to terrorism, an official in the Turkish president’s office said. Turkey formally notified Belgium of the 29-year-old Belgian national’s deportation on July 14.
