New episode in the PPDA affair.
While last May, 20 women had testified together and publicly to implicate the former star presenter Patrick Poivre d'Arvor, the investigative chamber of the Versailles Court of Appeal on Tuesday extended the prosecution of the Judicial investigation targeting Patrick Poivre d'Arvor to the facts appearing to be prescribed denounced by the writer Florence Porcel, a source familiar with the matter told AFP on Wednesday.
Florence Porcel, 38, accuses the former star presenter of having forced him to have sex in 2004 and fellatio in 2009, which he disputes.
The facts of 2004, closed without action for prescription during a preliminary investigation in 2021, were not included in the judicial information carried out by an examining magistrate in Nanterre.
By reversing the order of this judge, the court of appeal "allows the instruction to continue on all the facts" and to decide, in a second time, on their prescription or not, underlined the source close to the case.
