It’s a fact serious and unacceptable and I recalled it this morning in my remarks”, advances the deputy La France insoumise in a text posted on Twitter this Friday, denouncing a “bad controversy”. “I do not minimize” The chosen one close to Jean- Luc Mélenchon was severely reprimanded after remarks made a few hours earlier on CNEWS.”Adrien Quatennens recognized (the facts) and said that they were not acceptable.

On LCI, the EELV deputy Sandrine Rousseau thus recalled that “a slap to his spouse (was) a crime”. “That’s what we have to move because all these words are words that minimize the acts,” she said. “A slap is not equal to a person who is accused of rape””Shut up, now!

I never said it, and I never thought it. And those who say that deceive and thereby trivialize an act of domestic violence”, still defends Manuel Bompard. Adrien Quatennens is now withdrawn from “parliamentary work”. His resignation is not on the agenda, assured Mathilde Panot, the president of the group in the National Assembly.
