Bayou case: file closed, EELV’s internal cell could not “complete its investigation”
EELV’s investigation and sanction unit on harassment and sexual and gender-based violence has decided to “close the file” Julien Bayouaccused of psychological violence on an ex-companion, for lack of having been able “to carry out his investigation”, announced this Wednesday the party.
“The initial hearing (of the ex-companion), starting point of the investigation, could not take place” and “no one else entered the cell about Julien Bayou”, justifies EELV in a press release. Last September, the deputy had to withdraw from his posts as national secretary of EELV and co-president of the group of environmental deputies for the time of this internal instruction.
“This situation is obviously not satisfactory for anyone and we regret the difficult human consequences that this procedure and its media exposure may have had”, adds the executive office of EELV.
