Agnel case: light judicial review of former swimmer allowed to see his agent Sophie Kamoun again

“Reunion after 414 days without being able to see or talk to each other… Thank you life. On her Facebook page, Sophie Kamoun poses excited and enthusiastic, while Yannick Agnel also smiles. A photo posted Wednesday afternoon on a social media platform by an agent banned since December 2021 and an accusation of rape and sexual harassment of a minor in order to contact his protégé by a former swimmer have been placed under judicial review. Contacting the Mulhouse (Haut-Rhin) prosecutor’s office in charge of the case confirmed to Parisian-Today in France this Wednesday evening that the restrictions associated with the two-time Olympic champion have been reduced.

Thus, the latter can, as can be seen from this picture, see the former swimmer again, who today is a consultant and agent for several figures in French swimming. The three-time Olympic medalist also once again has the right to leave Paris and the suburbs. Yannick Agnel is still banned from having contact with his alleged victim Naome, the daughter of his former coach in Alsace, Lionel Horter, as well as his family. He is also still unable to travel to Mulhouse except in connection with a subpoena.

Justice banned Yannick Agnel from contacting his agent days after a wiretap, uncovered in December 2022 by L’Équipe, between the two-time 2013 world champion and Sophie Camoun, whom he called “mother-in-law”. Over the phone, a consultant for beIN Sports and RMC recommended that he “rebut” the allegations of a young woman who had just filed a complaint. She also assured Yannick Agnel’s mother that she would “lose everything” because of her other swimmer, Fantine Lesaffre, if the latter indicted the two-time Olympic champion before the investigation.

“Contrary to what is put forward in this article (from L’Équipe), I have never been at the forefront of implementing any defense strategy on behalf of Yannick, with whom I no longer have contact, no more than with his lawyers, since his arrest on December 9, 2021,” she defended in a press release.

Yannick Agnel acknowledged the “substantiality of the facts” but not the possible limitation, as explained at the time of arraignment by the public prosecutor of the Republic of Mulhouse, Edwig Roux-Moriso. The alleged facts date back to 2016, when the swimmer was 24 and Naoma Horter was 13. Investigators have since heard a second potential victim.
