The deputy of Paris had assured at the beginning of July to the Figaro that he would be questioned by an internal party commission “on what in no way constitutes sexist or sexual violence”.
The deputy and finalist in the environmental primary Sandrine Rousseau reported Monday on France 5 to have received at her home a woman accusing the national secretary of EELV Julien Bayou of “behaviours likely to break the moral health of women”. Asked about the deputy for Paris, in an issue of the show C à vous devoted in part to domestic violence confessed to on Sunday by the deputy LFI Adrien Quatennens, Sandrine Rousseau Rousseau replied: “I received at home for a very long time an ex-companion of Julien Bayou, I think that behaviors are likely to break the moral health of women”.
She continued: “They are obviously several, I only heard one testimony. A journalistic investigation seems to be in progress”. The “eco-feminist” recounted: “When I saw this woman, she was in a very depressed state, she was in very bad shape, she also attempted suicide a few weeks later.” “It’s one of the questions that will come to the table” to the party, added Sandrine Rousseau.
“A resentment” from his former companion
Asked if she thought Julien Bayou needed to step back like Adrien Quatennens has just done at LFI, she replied: “We’ll see, step by step“. Julien Bayou, who could not be reached immediately, had assured the beginning of July at the Figaro that he would be questioned by an internal party commission“as soon as possible on what does not constitute gender-based or sexual violence or inappropriate behavior towards anyone”.
“It is unfortunately a story that ends in suffering, and a break that is accompanied by thinly veiled threats against me and a form of instrumentalization that I can only deplore”, he added. He had mentioned “a resentment that she does not hide since she clearly wrote to me, three days after having seized the internal commission of EELV: “Worry. I will come back and strong. (…) The fall will be painful.”»
