Violence against women: Roussel (PCF) wants common “rules” for the parties
PCF chief Fabien Roussel on Tuesday urged political parties to think together about a “framework of internal rules” to deal with violence against women, based on a judiciary that must be “rapid” and “specialised”.
On this issue “there is a gap, everyone is taking their own means to fight against the violence in their party. I propose that we discuss this together, between political leaders of the left, the right, we are all confronted with it” . proposed on BFMTV and RMC to the deputies of the North, while the withdrawal of Adrien Quatennens from the coordination of La France insoumise due to domestic violence shook Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s movement.
On Monday, MP and environmental primary finalist Sandrine Rousseau told France 5 that she received at her home a woman who accused the national secretary of the EELV, Julien Bayou, of “behaviour that could harm women’s moral health “.
“Today we are being asked, people are being asked, to be the prosecutors in these cases, we are being asked to be party leaders, business leaders, union leaders, to be the prosecutors and to judge and I think that’s not up to us to do , it is up to justice to do it, and to do it quickly,” explained Fabien Roussel.
“If all this were to be made public, as Sandrine Rousseau did, I have my doubts,” he warned, adding: “What I wish for is that women are protected, that they feel safe.”
“We need a framework, rules that allow us to know how we act,” he stressed.
“There is a real difficulty, and that is that we must do justice without being righteous. I sincerely request that we can think about this together to create a framework for this, perhaps with a specialized judiciary adapted to take into account this freedom of expression that serves us so well after #MeToo,” he continued .
