“Juan Branco has been arrested,” tweeted the media attorney’s account on Tuesday, June 1. Targeted for rape investigation, launched by the Paris prosecutor’s office, Juan Branco was placed in police custody, says his lawyer Yassine Bouzrou, contacted by The Parisian.
On Thursday, April 29, a young 20-year-old woman filed a handrail at the 14th arrondissement police station for rape facts against the lawyer and essayist. In a long text posted on Facebook, Juan Branco, denied the accusations and provided his version of the facts. The young woman would have met Juan Branco after approaching him on Instagram. The two would have gone for a walk in the Luxembourg Gardens on Tuesday April 27, would have exchanged kisses and then reportedly went to the lawyer’s home to watch a film.
It was then that the sexual relationship would have taken place: “We hesitated a lot, I wanted her too, we said to each other, several times, and at one point, I asked her if she wanted, and she said yes, and we did what two people in these circumstances would do. “
