MP Cyrielle Chatelain calls for sanctions against Jean-René Cazeneuve for threatening her with being “shorn”

“He told me, twice and with determination, the following words: “You will be shorn at the Liberation for having voted with the National Rally”.” The president of the environmentalist deputies, Cyrielle Chatelain, requested, Wednesday, December 13, sanctions against Jean-René Cazeneuve (Renaissance), whom she accuses of having made these threatening remarks to her in the Hemicycle.

According to the assertions of Cyrielle Chatelain in a letter of protest addressed to the president of the National Assembly, Yaël Braun-Pivet (Renaissance), the incident took place on Tuesday, during the question session to the government electrified by the rejection of the immigration bill the day before.

“The shearing of women at the Liberation constituted an attack on their physical integrity and a destruction of what represented their femininity. The message is clear: as a woman, I must stay in my place and hold my tongue,” continues the MP, requesting in her letter “a disciplinary penalty” against Mr. Cazeneuve after this “threatening insult.”

The latter did not react midday on Wednesday, but, according to Le Figaro, he “strongly denies” these comments, which do not appear in the minutes of the session.

“He criticized him for the collusion of the left with the RN, not in a personal capacity,” reacted Mr. Cazeneuve’s entourage to Agence France-Presse. “He has difficulty with the fact that the left can vote on a text on immigration with the National Rally. »

A request examined after mid-January

“As a direct witness to this scene, I confirm it,” Olivier Faure, first secretary of the PS, who sits very close to Ms. Chatelain and Mr. Cazeneuve, declared on the social network “Misogynistic, insulting, outrageous: a very mediocre cocktail. All my support for my colleague president,” said the president of the socialist group, Boris Vallaud, on the same platform.

“A defeat on the immigration law can in no way justify these remarks of incredible violence and crass sexism,” also estimated the leader of the LFI deputies, Mathilde Panot.

The environmentalist deputy had hoped that her request would be included in the program of the office of the National Assembly on Wednesday, but it will only be examined at the next meeting of this executive body, after the winter break, we were told. learned from a parliamentary source. The work of the National Assembly resumes in mid-January.

On Tuesday, Ms. Chatelain asked the Prime Minister, Elisabeth Borne, to renounce the government's immigration bill, which "repeated the identity obsessions of the extreme right", saying she was proud that her group had tabled and defended the motion to rejection which hampered the text at first reading in the National Assembly. This was adopted with the votes of the left, as well as those of many LR deputies and almost the entire RN group. “In your place, I wouldn’t be proud,” the Prime Minister replied.
