For its part, the newspaper Le Monde collected a dozen testimonies, posted online on March 15, reporting “abuse of dominant position“from Patrick Poivre d’Arvor over the years.
PPDA’s attorney said his client “maintains and renews its declarations“: M. Poivre d’Arvor”never forced any relationship on anyone, and certainly not Ms. Porcel“, said Me Naepels, who defends the former presenter alongside Jacqueline Laffont.
In an interview with Le Parisien, published on March 22, Florence Porcel indicated that she did not want to react to the statements of PPDA and to trust justice. “The investigation will establish the facts“, she assured, saying that she wished that”Patrick Poivre d’Arvor be tried for his actions“.
