According to information initially revealed by The Dispatchthe 18-year-old high school student who, on June 9 in Gaillac (Tarn), had arrested Emmanuel Macron on the fact of appointing ministers accused of sexual assault, received the next day the visit of gendarmes in his school.
“I was in Spanish class when around 11:30 a.m., the deputy principal came to get me to talk. Outside of class, she asked me if I agreed to speak to the gendarmes”, testified the young Laura for The Parisian. During this visit, the gendarmes notably asked the high school student if she wanted to file a complaint concerning a sexual assault which she had mentioned the day before during her exchange with the president. In addition, Laura would also have been criticized by the gendarmes for her attitude. She evokes an “ambiguous” visit closer, according to her, to “intimidation”, still according to the Ile-de-France daily.
We would like to apologize to her if our approach to meeting her in high school to exchange was badly perceived.

Faced with the rising controversy, the Tarn gendarmerie explained itself on Facebookclaiming to have gone to meet the young girl in order to “take into account this person, who had presented himself as a victim, to offer him to collect a possible complaint, or failing that to offer him help, support or relay to meet the local associations to bring him assistance”.
“We would like to apologize to her if our approach to meeting her in high school to exchange was badly perceived and she considers that we were clumsy”, can we read in the following lines.
