Three rape allegations against a French secretary of state gynecologist have been filed

The Government of Elisabeth Borne is facing a new controversy. Two women have accused Chrysoula Zozaropoulou, French Secretary for State for Development, of rape in relation to events that took place years ago at her gynecology center. Another woman accuses him for "gynecological abuse" that would have been committed during a medical exam.

Zacharopoulou has been made aware of the accusations by the media and considers them "unacceptable". In a statement that her lawyer sent to the French press, the politician stated that she was subject to serious allegations during medical clinical examinations to diagnose and treat patients' illnesses.

These serious allegations have left the Secretary of State "shocked" and "deeply hurt". Zacharopoulou, a gynecologist who specializes in endometriosis (a chronic inflammatory gynecological disorder that causes the presence of endometrial tissues outside the uterus), said, "I have never been imposed the slightest exam on any of my patients."

After two separate allegations of rape against Secretary of State of France, the Paris Prosecutor's Office opened a probe on May 27, according to the magazine Marianne. The Brigade for the Repression of Crime against Persons has been assigned the investigation. On May 25, Zacharopoulou was the first to sue. She is a Frenchwoman from Greece. The second lawsuit was filed on June 16, and concerns an alleged 2016 rape "in a medical environment." This past Thursday, the third complaint was filed for "gynecological abuse" for events that occurred in 2018. These events were allegedly committed during an endometriosis consultation.

These lawsuits were filed just days after Zacharopoulou, President Emmanuel Macron's Secretary of State, was appointed on May 20. Prior to her appointment, Dr. Ella was an MEP for La Republica en Marcha (the president's party) since July 2019. To enter the government of Prime Minster Elisabeth Borne, she resigned her post one month ago. She is now in charge of the Portfolio of Development, Francophonie, and International Agreements, and reports directly to Catherine Colonna, the Foreign Minister.

Zacharopoulou (46), has been a gynecologist for over a decade. She has been a specialist in endometriosis. This is a condition that affects 10 to 15 percent of women who are childbearing and causes severe pain during periods or ovulation. She presented to President Macron this past year a report about how to improve endometriosis diagnosis and recognition.

The Secretary of State was not the only one who was charged with rape. Damien Abad, the Minister for Solidarity and Gerarld Darmanin were also among the other members of the current French government. Darmanin was indicted for rape and sexual harassment, as well as breach of trust. These events occurred in 2009, at Darmanin's beginning in his career. Darmanin was working in the legal affairs department of the Union for a Popular Movement. Initial dismissal of the complaint was followed by a reopening. The Prosecutor's office requested that the case be filed in early 2022.

Damien Abad was appointed Minister of Solidarity one month ago. He has been accused of rape by two women. This is despite the fact that Abad is physically disabled. Abad claims that all sexual relationships he had during his lifetime were consensual. Zacharopoulou's and Abad's cases were also revealed after Zacharopoulou was appointed minister.
