Abad case: the government “alongside” those who accuse, justice “only to be able to decide” – France



“The establishment of the truth, it is up to justice to do it”: Olivia Grégoire reacts to the Abad affair



“The government is at the side of those who, following an attack or harassment, have the immense courage to speak out,” said Olivia Grégoire on Monday, after accusations of rape relayed by the press of two women in Damien Abad’s place.

“The government is also at the side of all those, still too many, who have walled themselves up or who have been walled in silence. He will continue tirelessly to encourage the freedom of speech for women and tirelessly encourage women who have suffered violence to come to justice”, continued the government spokesperson, adding that “the establishment of the truth, it is up to justice to do so”.

“Zero tolerance for sex offenders”

“Justice is the only one who must or can decide,” she insisted after the Council of Ministers, advocating “zero tolerance for sex offenders”. She also specified that the Prime Minister, Elisabeth Borne, had spoken this Sunday evening with Damien Abad, her Minister of Solidarity.

Former boss of the LR deputies in the National Assembly and the main war prize of Macronie since the victory of the outgoing president on April 24, Damien Abad has been in turmoil since this weekend. He faces charges of raping two women in 2010 and 2011, relayed in an article published Saturday by Mediapart, which he denies “with the greatest force”. Two complaints have already been closed, but justice says it is analyzing a new report.
