According to the Paris prosecutor's Office, Gilles Le Gendre was implicated in sexual and moral harassment cases by the elected Parisian Rachida (LR) but the justice rejected the letter. Tuesday, June 7, request by AFP
His letter was closed on Tuesday because he did not know of any offense.
Concerning the allegations of sexual and moral harassment that were raised against the former president, LREM, parliamentary group at the National Assembly, the prosecution did not take any action because it had not received a complaint.
The legislative fight in Paris's upscale neighborhoods had become a legal fistfight, with Rachida Dati, the LR mayor, attempting to incriminate in harassment cases the LREM deputy Gilles Le Gendre (candidate for his re-election), who in turn accuses the aedile in slanderous denunciation.
Rachida Dati's report was built on an old union statement by parliamentary collaborators, and press articles that denounced "false allegations" made by Gilles Le Gendre. He claimed not to be aware of allegations of sexual harassment directed at deputies.
It was a non-denunciation or even a crime, according to the former Minister of Justice. Rachida Dati of the Parisian Right echoed Joachim Son-Forget's remarks. Joachim Son-Forget is a well-known for his absurd positions. He accused Rachida of being "suspected" of sexual abuse that was directly reported to him by the victims.
"A few days prior to an election in a constituency in which I am the outgoing deputy, and her (Rachida Datti, editor's notice), one of our mayors, support from one of our competitors, it is simple to imagine the motivations for this self-proclaimed morality witnesses", had Gilles Le Gendre, candidate in his own succession in the 2nd district of Paris where Jean-Pierre Lecoq was the LR mayor of 6th arrondissement.
Gilles Le Gendre claims he was confronted internally with these rumors before being cleared.
Until June 12th and 19th, the presidential majority will hold 14 of the 18 Parisian constituencies. Only two are occupied currently by LR deputies.
