Sexual harassment: Sophie Tissier filed a complaint against Eric Coquerel


The figure of the Yellow Vests Sophie Tissier claims to have suffered the "inappropriate" behavior of the deputy in 2014. On Sunday, she announced avo

She had publicly denounced on Sunday an “offensive, harassing” behavior towards her by the LFI deputy Éric Coquerel.

Left-wing activist Sophie Tissier filed a complaint on Monday for "sexual harassment" against the man who was elected this week as chairman of the Assembly's Finance Committee.

Sophie Tissier, a former figure of the Yellow Vests, announced this weekend that she had made a report to LFI's sexual violence monitoring committee and filed a "pre-complaint".

“I wanted to wait for the pressure to drop to talk about it, but the media is what it is… it's done.

Let my word be taken into account, “she said on Twitter, adding a photo of her complaint for” sexual harassment and gestures that may amount to sexual assault “.

She also castigates "this denial of the FI (rebellious France) and its VSS committee (sexual and gender-based violence) which did not even contact me..."

This denial of the FI and its “VSS committee” which did not even contact me… I therefore confirm that I have filed a complaint for “sexual harassment and acts which may be related to sexual assault”

There are witnesses.

#coquerel knows perfectly well deep down that he is lying... please.

After a tweet at midday on Sunday, she had described at the start of the evening on BFMTV "inappropriate gestures, wandering hands", during an evening organized by the party in 2014, evoking "a salacious, sticky look", and during the dance party "a clumsy flirt", "outrageous, offensive, harassing" behavior on the part of the deputy.

According to Ms. Tissier, Éric Coquerel also sent him text messages offering to take him to his hotel.

Éric Coquerel denies the facts

"It was not a physical assault in the sense that there was no physical violence," she said, "but the harassment was still traumatic."

"I don't want him to go so far as to resign", but "that he recognize the facts, that he hear what I have to say and say

yes it's true, I had inappropriate behavior

 ,” she added.

Sophie Tissier also said she spoke about it openly in the party, in particular to LFI MEP Leila Chaibi and press officer Juliette Prados.

Asked before on BFMTV, Mr. Coquerel had again challenged any inappropriate behavior towards women and started a counter-offensive: “I will look at the file, I will see.

I do not rule out filing a complaint for defamation”, he said, considering about his accuser that “there will be no complaint” and that “it will be pschitt”.
