A French website that listed high profile figures who it claimed were Jewish was denounced by French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin.
The since removed site was called “Je suis partout” (“I am everywhere”) in an apparent reference to an anti-Semitic publication that circulated in Vichy France during World War II, reported The Connexion news site.
“This anti-Semitic site is deeply shocking and vile. I have signalled its contents – which are likely to be found criminal – to the [prosecutor] so that proceedings can begin against the authors and the site can be closed as soon as possible,” Darmain said on Twitter.
He added, “Web hosts and social media managers should take responsibility.”
After Darmain’s Tuesday statement, the site was taken down.
