Adrien Quatennens, accused of domestic violence against his wife, will not participate in the activities of his political group in the Assembly until justice has rendered its decision, the LFI group announced in a press release on Wednesday evening. “We want the ongoing legal proceedings to continue to their conclusion. Once the court decision has been handed down, our group will collectively decide on the follow-up to be given within it”, explains the parliamentary group.

“Until then” the deputy from the North “will not participate in the activity of our parliamentary group”, he continues in a press release. Unveiled by the Canard Enchaîné, which had reported a handrail filed by Céline Quatennens, this case caused an earthquake in mid-September in La France insoumise. Adrien Quatennens, very close to Jean-Luc Mélenchon and one of the favorites to succeed him, stepped back from his post as political coordinator and has not appeared in the Assembly since.

In recent years, I have wanted a divorce three times, each time under pressure I have backtracked”, she said in a statement. Accusations that the interested party refutes.
