The parquet office in Paris opens an investigation into Abdellatif Kechiche, director of ‘L’Esquive’ and ‘La Graine et le Mulet’. At the beginning of this month, a complaint was filed against him for sexual violence. He himself disputes the facts.
The 29-year-old prosecutor claims to have dined with the director in an apartment in Paris on the night of June 23 to 24. According to her own words she fell asleep after a few glasses of alcohol, after which she woke up with open pants on the couch while Kechiche touched her.
The 57-year-old French-Tunisian director certainly denies the veracity of these accusations. According to him, she could “think of no other way to become known than to claim a victim role,” said his lawyer Jeremie Assous.
