New controversy for the first government of Elisabeth Borne appointed a month ago? The newspaper Marianne announces that two rape complaints have been filed against a new member of the government. This is Chrysoula Zacharopoulou, Secretary of State for Development, La Francophonie and International Partnerships. Two new sex affairs after those against Damien Abad and Gérald Darmaninwhich could make maintaining the executive even more complicated.

Two complaints 15 days apart

According to the weekly, the first complaint was filed on May 25, before an investigation was opened two days later by the Paris prosecutor’s office. The second is more recent, since it dates from June 16. There again, the case was entrusted to the brigade for the repression of delinquency against the person. In both cases, the victims therefore accuse the minister of rape “in a medical setting” in 2016 on an adult woman. Before entering the government on May 20, Chrysoula Zacharopoulou was indeed a gynecologist. She practiced in two hospitals, that of Trousseau and Tenon, in Paris. She was then under the direction of Professor Émile Daraï, who is also targeted by a judicial investigation by 25 patients for rape and gynecological violence.

A government already under pressure

These two complaints are in addition to the cases against Damien AbadMinister of Solidarity, Autonomy and Disabled People, where three women accuse him of rape and attempted rape. Monday, 188 personalitiesincluding Clémentine Autain, Adèle Haenel and Alice Coffin, signed an appeal in The world to the resignation of the politician defecting from the Republicans. If for Chrysoula Zacharopoulou, Prime Minister Élisabeth Borne has remained silent for the moment – she is on borrowed time after the bad legislative elections for the presidential movement, she had however taken the time to respond to a citizen in the street during the campaign concerning Damien Abad, highlighting in particular the “investigation time”.
