The new Minister Delegate in charge of Citizenship defended on RMC / BFMTV Gérald Darmanin, named in Beauvau despite an investigation for rape of which he is the object.

The former secretary of state for gender equality assures her: she “would never have agreed to work with a man who would have been found guilty of rape”. Invited this Monday morning of the RMC / BFMTV morning, the new deputy minister responsible for Citizenship, Marlène Schiappa, returned to the appointment of Gérald Darmanin as Minister of the Interior, while the latter is accused of rape.

“I will be very clear (…) I have always been a feminist, I would never have agreed to be a deputy minister, or to work elsewhere, with a man who would have been found guilty of rape,” said Marlène Schiappa, specifying “do not expect a patent for feminism from anyone”.

“Political instrumentalization”

“What I observe in this case is that there was an investigation and three decisions which lead to a dismissal and a dismissal without result. The case was reopened for procedural reasons and Gérald Darmanin is not under investigation, “she explained, then denouncing a” political instrumentalization “on this affair.

Gérald Darmanin was accused in 2017 of rape by his former collaborator, Sophie Patterson-Spatz, who requested it in 2009, when he was project manager in the legal affairs department of the UMP, in an attempt to have an 2004 conviction for blackmail and malicious calls against a former partner. According to his statements, Gérald Darmanin would have dangled her support, and she would have felt compelled to “go to the pan”, as she explained to the investigators. The Minister of the Interior admitted having had sexual intercourse with this woman, but according to him, freely consented. Initially closed without further action, the procedure was relaunched by the Paris Court of Appeal, which asked for new investigations at the start of June.

“The difference is justice”

Asked about the case of Roman Polanski, for whom she had previously assured that she would never applaud a man convicted of rape, Marlène Schiappa also said that “the difference is justice”.

“For Polanski there are several cases that have not been tried. He has become the symbol of a form of impunity, there are women who accuse him and this has not gone to justice. My combat is that the complaints of rape, that all the complaints are taken and transmitted and that justice can pass “, she thus affirmed, recalling that” rape is a serious crime “.
