French prosecutor seeking court appearance for ex-Macron bodyguard Benalla

PARIS (Reuters) - The French prosecutor’s department said on Friday that it wanted Alexandre Benalla, a former bodyguard to President Emmanuel Macron, to appear in court over allegations including the misuse of diplomatic passports and other charges.

Benalla, who was sacked in 2018 after a video emerged of him beating a protester in Paris, had been under scrutiny over his use of diplomatic passports.
