French courts have fined MP and Mayor, Gilles Bourdouleix, €3,000 for saying 'maybe Hitler didn't kill enough' Roma, while confirming a lower court ruling that the remark is a crime against humanity. Local newspaper reports of the comments in July 2013 already forced his resignation from the centrist UDI party.
