The two police custody in the investigation into the dissemination of intimate videos attributed to Benjamin Griveaux ended on Monday February 17. The hearings made it possible to freeze on minutes the positions of Piotr Pavlenski and Alexandra de Taddeo, who were referred Monday evening before the prosecution. Here, according to our information, the main lessons.
The Russian artist and activist Piotr Pavlenski has chosen to remain silent on the premises of the Brigade for the Suppression of Delinquency in the Person of the Paris Judicial Police. But, before being arrested, he had publicly demanded this broadcast on a website: he also signed an explanatory text there. As of Wednesday, February 12, acquaintances of the artist had relayed the content of the site "Pornopolitique.com".
The young woman confirms that she is the recipient of the videos
Piotr Pavlenski's partner, Alexandra de Taddeo, chose to speak to the investigators. She claimed that the pornographic videos had been sent to her by Benjamin Griveaux with whom she had had an affair. She says, however, ignore everything about the way in which these images ended up in the possession of her current companion.
In addition, Alexandra de Taddeo ensures that she did not take part in putting the sequence online and that she did not discover its broadcast until afterwards. However, she does not dissociate herself from this initiative aimed at denouncing what she considers as the hypocrisy of certain politicians publicly putting forward their couple and multiplying anecdotes about their family life, while having a different behavior in private . The young woman also defends herself from any personal acrimony towards Benjamin Griveaux. Unlike Piotr Pavlenski, Alexandra de Taddeo was assisted by a lawyer during her second day of hearing.
These two versions must now be confronted with the technical elements resulting from the operation of their respective smartphones.
The two protagonists were brought this Monday evening before the Paris prosecutor's office and were to be presented to an investigating judge Tuesday morning as part of the investigation opened for "invasion of privacy" and "broadcast without the person's agreement of sexual images ”.
