Newly appointed French minister accused of rape by two women

French prosecutors are looking into rape allegations against an ex-gynaecologist.

Chrysoula Zigaropoulou, secretary of state for the development, was appointed last month. She is now being accused of carrying out gynaecological examinations on two women without their consent.

According to the Paris prosecutor’s office, the first rape complaint was filed on 25 May and the third on 16 June.

She has not yet spoken publicly about the allegations.

The details of the claims are still to be revealed, but French media reported that Ms. Zacharopoulou (46) was accused of penetration without consent.

French law defines rape as any act that involves penetration through violence, threat, coercion or surprise.

Two women have been accused of rape against Damien Abad, a newly appointed disability minister. He denied the allegations and said that he does not intend to resign.

Gerald Darmanin, Interior Minister, was also accused of rape many years ago. Prosecutors have requested that the case be dismissed. Darmanin denied the allegations.

As President Emmanuel Macron tries to deal the pain of his party losing its parliamentary major on the weekend, the latest claims will distract him.
