A commander stationed in Rouen (Seine-Maritime) was tried a few days ago before the criminal court of Amiens (Somme) for acts of moral harassment, reports



A two-year suspended prison sentence and a three-year ban on practicing his profession were required.

The deliberation must be delivered in May.

The latter had filed a complaint in early 2021 for facts dating from 2017. The complainant had benefited from 30 days of ITT for post-traumatic stress.

She would have taken legal action when she discovered that her former boss was preparing to take over managerial responsibilities.

A case that would have been "stifled" by his hierarchy, in the eyes of the prosecution and the civil party.

During the trial – out of place in the Picardy capital given the links between the Norman magistrates and the defendant – the public prosecutor reproached this fifty-year-old "for having violently denigrated and isolated his assistant from the rest of the service" on his return from holidays.

For the prosecutor, it was a question of "showing the big arms to prove that he was the boss, where it was difficult for him to manage alongside a woman with as much charisma as him".
