There, he would have targeted many young women in precarious situations. d’Assu 2000 to have sexual relations with very young women is gradually taking shape.”He came to do his shopping in Morocco”It is on the other side of the Mediterranean that all eyes are now on, more precisely in Tangier, port city in the Kingdom of Morocco where an Assu 2000 call center is located. Jacques Bouthier, in his capacity as manager of the company, went there regularly. To visit his teams, but also to identify new victims, as several former call center employees assured BFMTV. “In fact, he came to do his shopping in Morocco. His type was Moroccan women. young, thin and rather small. He spent a lot of time at the switchboard (…) but he flirted with anything that moved. When he went around the sets, he went to see the girls and invited them to a villa. testifies Khamisse, former employee and manager of Assu 2000 in Tangier. A testimony corroborated by Ghita, who also worked on behalf of Assu 2000 in Tangier. “Quickly, I received several complaints. A dozen maybe. The girls complained about the attitude of Jacques Bouthier. They said to me: ‘He touched my breasts. buttocks.’ It never went to the police station. But it was problematic. I spoke to my managers about it quickly. They said to me: ‘We must not make a big deal out of it. We have to play it down,’ he explains. -elle.Read moreThe attitude of the boss had become so problematic that Ghita was at the time forced to put in place strategies to avoid any contact with Jacques Bouthier.”I advised the girls to go in the toilets or taking a break when he arrived on the set”, she recalls. For his part, Khamisse assures that Jacques Bouthier liked to organize parades modeled on the famous lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret in a villa. is the image of a company director considering his employees as so many preys to monopolize which is taking shape little by little. His visits to Tangier were also regular, once a quarter. And the call center was not his only hunting ground. Jacques Bouthier also organized semi meetings and various meetings in the Cherifian kingdom, in Fez, Ouarzazate or Marrakech. Very young precarious women as targets In France, the Jacques Bouthier affair began with the testimony of a young woman of 22, millionaire when she was a minor, in great personal and family difficulty. Either the same profile as the young 14-year-old woman who succeeded him. In Morocco, the former boss of Assu 2000 also took advantage of his wealth and his position to bring into his lap young women with limited financial resources and sometimes unable to afford to refuse his proposals. “It was his favorite hunting ground,” a former manager told BFMTV. “You have to understand that here in Morocco, it’s very hard to find work. Tangier but they had come to work for Assu 2000. And most sent money to their families. If they lost their job, it was dramatic. Jacques Bouthier knew it and used it. He chose his victims. He aimed mainly the standard service because that’s where the youngest girls are, 19 to 26, 27 maybe. And the least educated. The ones who can say ‘no’ the least,” says Ghita.More Still pernicious, Jacques Bouthier organized rigged competitions in his company to be able to go on vacation with, once again, very young women. Khamisse remembers having won an internal competition at Assu 2000 thanks to the many contracts he signed. At stake? A five-day, all-expenses-paid stay in Mexico. “But they changed the rules so that I wouldn’t go. In fact, it was because he only wanted girls on these trips,” he says today. local police? During an exchange of SMS with his former boss, Khamisse also received barely veiled threats from Jacques Bouthier, suggesting the methods that the man could deploy, who did not hesitate to set up a commando at the beginning of the year to recover a video where we see him in bed with a 14-year-old girl.” If you persist in wanting to annoy us, you will put us under the obligation to teach you a good lesson. (.. .) I don’t like scammers. Do you want me to talk to my friends in the Tangier police about it”, thus warns Jacques Bouthier, in an exchange of messages that BFMTV has been able to consult. friends of the Tangier police”, spoke the septuagenarian? Did he benefit from privileges in the local administration because of his wealth? Did he bribe police officials? So many questions that let us consider the colossal investigative work that awaits the investigators, on this affair which now extends to both sides of the Mediterranean. Ghita, she assures him: “He made it clear that he had money and could buy whatever he wanted, including the police”. A sign of the impunity from which Jacques Bouthier believed he benefited, he even took advantage of a reception organized at the French consulate in Tangier to try to approach a new victim. This is what assures BFMTV Nour (the first name has been changed) a young Moroccan dismissed in November 2021 from Assu 2000 for having refused the advances of the big boss. During a reception organized in the enclosure of the French representation in the Moroccan city, Jacques Bouthier had told Nour: “You are beautiful, you deserve to be treated like a queen”, before mentioning “little hiding places”. in the consulate. For Ghita, Jacques Bouthier’s behavior towards young Moroccan women testifies to a certain vision of the world. “I don’t know if we can talk about racism. I would rather say that he had a neo-colonialist attitude. (…) He didn’t care about consent.
