Oudéa-Castera does not “want a trial of intent” against Le Graët pending the investigation

The Minister of Sports, Amélie-Oudéa Castéra, takes stock. Asked about the investigation into the functioning of the French Football Federation after its president, Noël Le Graët, was the subject of accusations of sexual harassment, AOC refuses to draw hasty conclusions.

“Investigative work is underway,” said the minister on FranceInfo. We have to see if the revelations of SoFoot are accurate, this is the purpose of the investigation that we have launched. It has two parts: a part which relates to the climate, to the management, to the governance, to the direction of this federation. And a second part on how the FFF takes on subjects such as the fight against gender-based violence. The approach of the inspectors and a very methodical approach very respectful of each of the two parties. »

“He told me he has this respect for women, that he has daughters and a wife”

Amélie-Oudéa Castera also evokes the discussions she was able to have with Noël Le Graët, whose defense seems almost parodic. “Noël Le Graët told me that he was not the author of the famous SMS, that he had this respect for women, that he had daughters and a woman to whom he was attached. He says he is very respectful of the working environment. I don’t want to impugn intention before the letter. We will therefore have to wait for the conclusions of the investigation, probably after the World Cup.
