Jean-Vincent Placé again accused of “sexual harassment”: an investigation is opened – France


This Thursday, the Paris prosecutor’s office confirmed having received a complaint and opened an investigation on November 23 for “sexual harassment” between 2012 and 2016 against Jean-Vincent Placé. The investigations were entrusted to the Brigade for the repression of delinquency against the person (BRDP).
Contacted, Jean-Vincent Placé said “take note” of the complaint. “I do not wish, at this stage of the proceedings, to make any comments. I will answer, of course, all the questions which would come to be asked to me by the investigators, added the ex-boss of the senators environmentalists, questioned on all the elements.

Order to “dance a slow” and “low hand in the back”

Snippets of the facts denounced today by the former collaborator had been mentioned for the first time in 2018 by Liberation: during a trip to Rome, Jean-Vincent Placé would have “ordered him to dance a slow” with the senator centrist François Zocchetto.
A year later, she had testified anonymously on France 3, indicating that the former UDI mayor of Laval had “grabbed”, “pressed against him” and had put a “hand down behind his back”. François Zochetto had given up standing for the municipal elections, presenting his “apologies” for his “lack of restraint” because he had “not dared to resist the injunction” of Jean-Vincent Placé whom he accompanied, while “denying any reprehensible behavior ”.

Several years of “sexual harassment”

With her complaint, the ex-collaborator, aged 35, now evokes several years of “sexual harassment”. In August 2015 in Lille, on the sidelines of the summer gathering of the party that Jean-Vincent Placé was then preparing to leave, she accused him of having “touched her buttocks”. The second attack would have occurred in mid-May 2016 in Seoul, during an official trip by Jean-Vincent Placé: in a car, the former Secretary of State of François Hollande would have “deliberately touched the chest” of the complainant . Contacted, the latter declined to comment.
According to his lawyer, Me Tewfik Bouzenoune, Jean-Vincent Placé “operated a reification of a brilliant young woman who gradually died under his authority”. “The free speech movements and the friendly injunctions of women made her decide to speak up. The discovery that another woman had been the victim, and the conviction of Mr. Placé “for sexual harassment last March” determined her to file a complaint, “according to her counsel.
