Events do not appear as "all day" events but as one hour events at midnight

Thanks a lot for developing this great application!
I’m having the following issue. I am subscribed to a calendar containing events like the following:
BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=Europe/Paris:20160101 DTEND;TZID=Europe/Paris:20160101 DTSTAMP:20140414T160249Z UID:JF60 CLASS:PUBLIC CREATED:20140414T160249Z DESCRIPTION:Jour férié: Jour de l'an LAST-MODIFIED:20140414T160249Z LOCATION:- SEQUENCE:0 STATUS:CONFIRMED SUMMARY:Jour férié: Jour de l'an TRANSP:OPAQUE END:VEVENT
These events show up in my calendar (stock Calendar application on CyanogenMod 13.0-20160918-NIGHTLY-oneplus3) as one hour events from midnight to 1 AM, not as full day events. Is this a bug? Is there any way to fix this?
Thanks a lot!

This is most likely not a bug in icsdroid, but the generated calendar data is bad.
For cases where a “VEVENT” calendar component specifies a “DTSTART” property with a DATE value type but no “DTEND” nor “DURATION” property, the event’s duration is taken to be one day. For cases where a “VEVENT” calendar component specifies a “DTSTART” property with a DATE-TIME value type but no “DTEND” property, the event ends on the same calendar date and time of day specified by the “DTSTART” property.
See this SO post so better only use
Thanks @kralo for checking the iCalendar. The default type of
DATE-TIME, so @a3nm if you want to specify a
VALUE=DATE. If you didn’t generate the iCalendar yourself, please contact the one who generated it (and provide this thread as reference).
