The Paris prosecutor’s office opened a preliminary investigation on May 15, targeting former presidential candidate François Asselineau, head of the small sovereignist party UPR. He is accused by former collaborators of “sexual harassment” and D’“Sexual assault”. One of them, Mathieu (1), who worked between September 2019 and March 2020, as both press secretary and driver for François Asselineau, had complained against the politician a few days earlier, in a police station in his home town, in the Allier. File transmitted to Paris, where the enarch resides who obtained 0.9% of the votes in 2017, the police of the Brigade of repression of delinquency against the person (BRDP) have heard from many people, members or ex-members UPR, which has just over 14,000 members to date (although the party claims nearly 39,000).
