Words Of An Alleged Victim Of PPDA, After Complaint For Slanderous Denunciation.

A few days before the airing of Supplementary investigation on France 2 on Tuesday, in which Patrick Poivre d’Arvor is the subject of a new rape complaint, he filed a civil action for denunciation libel against 16 women who had previously filed a complaint against him for sexual violence or sexual harassment.

Among these women, Emmanuelle Dancourt, who filed a complaint against the PPDA in 2021 for a sexual assault of which she was allegedly the victim in 2008, responds in Le Parisien on Friday, April 29.

“Thank you Patrick for offering us on a plate the trial that we were not allowed to have because of prescription. He shoots himself in the foot”, says this journalist in a video testimony published on the site of the national daily (to listen to below).

“Hopefully this trial will take place, and you will see us all 16 victims arm in arm arriving in court very very determined. Finally, we will be able to talk to him eye to eye, if he dares to come.”

“I call it a wet firecracker. He almost makes me pity in fact because he has only that: to denounce us, 16 people, 16 women for slanderous denunciation. But what a poor defence…”, continues the one who says she was the victim of a sexual assault in 2008, followed by more than a year of harassment on the part of the former star presenter of TF1.

“A few women in our group of victims were obviously troubled, were scared, before realizing like me right away that in fact, it was an opportunity, and then above all that it was totally indecent.”

“The complaint, I believe is 43 pages. It is incredibly violent, for the excerpts that I read, one has the impression of having a speech from the 30s and 40s. It’s violent because he accuses us of wanting to advertise on his back. But who would want to be known for having been raped or assaulted by PDDA?” Emmanuelle Dancourt wonders again.

“He also says that we ganged up on him when none of them knew each other before. The violence of the words says exactly who the character is. That says it all about him”, she concludes her testimony.

According to the PPDA, the 16 women accusing him today have been “rejected or ignored,” fostering a “bitterness that leads them to commit, out of belated revenge, the crime of slanderous denunciation.”

“We cannot accuse falsely and with impunity,” Me Philippe Naepels, lawyer for Patrick Poivre d’Arvor, told AFP on Wednesday. A similar complaint was filed by the journalist in February, but it was dismissed.
