Pierre Joxe is subject to an investigation by the Paris prosecutor's office since Wednesday: after accusations of touching the opera by a young woman who has not filed a complaint and he is suing for libel next Monday, the former minister of the Interior, according to Ritha's lawyer, aged 40 and employed as a caregiver for her dying wife, practiced "sexual assaults" on a daily basis, as she explains Thursday morning at the microphone of Europe 1. The complaint concerns acts of sexual assault and harassment.
He "lifted his T-shirt"
"It started by taking his hands and caressing them," says Laurence Cechman, Ritha's lawyer. "Then there were contacts, putting her hands on her buttocks, touching her breasts, lifting her T-shirt, and pretending to tell her about her wife's health to try to to kiss."
Pierre Joxe denies the facts alleged against him in this case. But for Me Laurence Cechman, doubt is not allowed: "There are no direct witnesses of the scenes of sexual harassment and aggression, but by cross-checking the confidences of my client, we come to the certainty that Mr. Joxe has practiced sexual harassment on a daily basis, "she says.
