Nonce Paolini, ex-boss of TF1, understands “the suffering” of the accusers
The former boss of TF1 Nonce Paolini understands “the suffering” of women who accuse ex-presenter Patrick Poivre d’Arvor of sexual assault and rape, and claims not to have been aware at the time of the alleged facts. “I want to tell them that their suffering cannot leave anyone indifferent and in particular me, neither as a man nor as a former leader,” he said in the program produced by the editorial staff of Mediapart.
“I hope they will be able to obtain the possibility of having their case reviewed by the courts”, continues Nonce Paolini. The alleged facts span from the 1980s to the 2000s.
“There is no system, there is simply someone who behaved in an odious way”
At the time, “obviously we didn’t know. If we had known, we would have made the necessary arrangements, and me first”, adds the man who was HRD of the first channel and CEO from 2008 (date on which PPDA left the presentation of the JT of 20 Hours) in 2016.
If this had been known, “sanctions would have been taken”, he says. “We couldn’t question the reputation of a company like that, listed on the stock exchange, listed on the CAC 40. It was an inconsiderate risk. »
Nonce Paolini believes that “it is not a system that should be denounced. There is no system, there is simply someone who behaved in an odious way with women in different contexts without anyone knowing it since these women did not speak out”.
