A former BFMTV journalist said he tried to kiss her in 2013 in Corsica.

A journalist, who worked at BFMTV at the material time, pushed the door of the police station in the 16th arrondissement of Paris this week in order to denounce facts which would date back to 2013, learned franceinfo from a source close to the investigation.

She and Jean-Jacques Bourdin then represented BFMTV at the Petanque Open in Calvi (Haute-Corse). The scene took place in 2013 in Corsica at the hotel where they were staying. According to the journalist, Jean-Jacques Bourdin tried to kiss her several times, in vain, before saying to her: “I always get what I want.” He then sent her messages the following days to ask her for favors, writings which she claims to have partly kept.

It is the liberation of women’s speech and more specifically the Nicolas Hulot affair which prompted this journalist to denounce the host of the morning show of RMC and BFMTV, almost nine years after the facts, which are probably prescribed. Indeed, the prescription is six years from the commission of the offense for this type of act on adults.

Two other women are ready to testify to the behavior of the host, as context witnesses, according to information from franceinfo. The Paris prosecutor’s office has confirmed that it has received this complaint and specifies that it is currently being analyzed. Contacted, Jean-Jacques Bourdin’s lawyer did not wish to respond to our requests.
