POLITICS – If government spokesman Gabriel Attal preferred not to comment the accusations aiming Nicolas hulot, the Secretary of State for Equality between Women and Men, Elisabeth, Moreno appreciated very little defense strategy used by the former Minister of Ecological Transition this Wednesday, November 24.
Responsible for issues related to violence against women in the government, the minister reacted on Twitter to a sequence during which the former star of “Ushaïa” used self-mockery to deny the accusations against him.
“I know that I have a very ungrateful physique, and that therefore only the constraint allows me to live love stories”, launched the ecologist, seeming to imply that only people devoid of charm would be able to commit sexual assault. “To be ironic on such a subject? Seriously? These words are intolerable ”, criticized Élisabeth Moreno who obviously did not appreciate Nicolas Hulot’s attempt at humor.
In an investigation carried out by “Special Envoy” which will be broadcast this Thursday, November 25 by France 2, five women accuse Nicolas Hulot of rape and sexual assault. Testimonies following a complaint filed for similar facts several years ago, which had been closed without continuation by the prosecution of Saint-Malo in 2008. For his part, the former Minister of Ecological Transition took the lead in denying these accusations before their dissemination, and announced that he wanted to leave public life for good.
