After three and a half months of investigation, the auditors of the IGESR also transmitted a version of this preliminary report to the Minister of Sports Amélie Oudéa-Castéra and to Philippe Diallo, vice-president of the FFF who took the interim orders after the withdrawal of Le Graët.

So far, the executive committee he leads has chosen to wait for the publication of the final audit report before taking a position on the fate of President Le Graët.

A very delicate period for Le Graët

Severely shaken for five months by journalistic investigations, testimonies from women accusing him of sexist and inappropriate behavior, or by his own sweeping statements about Zinédine Zidane, the Breton leader is going through the most delicate period of his mandate. started in 2011. Even within his "Comex", "NLG" (81 years old) appears isolated: several of his relatives no longer imagine him taking control of the body in the coming weeks, especially since the opening mid -January of an investigation concerning him for moral and sexual harassment.

For her part, Florence Hardouin, with contested managerial methods, was hospitalized for a heart attack shortly after her layoff and is awaiting an interview prior to dismissal at the end of February.

She has not spoken since her layoff, unlike Le Graët, who denied the facts of harassment and castigated a "manifestly chargeable administrative investigation", in a press release from his lawyers.
