Sexual harassment accusations

Sexual Harassment - The French Prime Minister Edouard Phillippe has released a statement saying that the government “has no reason to believe accusations of sexual harassment involving the French Environment Minister Nicolas Hulot. Philippe declared that Hulot “had expressed himself sincerely about the rumours of which he has been subject for several days adding that his explanations were clear and precise and the government had no reason to doubt his word”. The announcement came following an interview this morning on BFM TV in which Hulot addressed the subject ahead of an article which will, according to reports, be published by a French newspaper tomorrow.
