Complaint filed against renowned French professor in incest case that rocked France

Paris – The stepson of a renowned French professor and political commentator has filed a complaint against him with prosecutors for alleged incest, in a case that has shaken France and prompted a review of legislation.

Under French law, incest is sexual abuse by any relation, even if they are not related by blood.

The accusations against Olivier Duhamel first surfaced in a book written by his stepdaughter Camille Kouchner, sister of the alleged victim.

The case has led hundreds of people to share their stories of incest on social media and French President Emmanuel Macron said at the weekend that France would tighten its laws on incest and seek to better protect children.

“The presumed victim … has filed a complaint against his former stepfather Olivier Duhamel following the opening of a preliminary investigation by the Paris prosecutor,” lawyer Jacqueline Laffont said in a statement.
