The president of the French Olympic and Sports Committee (CNOSF), Brigitte Henriques, filed a complaint for “psychological violence” against the former general secretary of the body, Didier Séminet, with whom she has been in conflict for months, A learned Le Monde, Monday, October 3, confirming information from the France-Presse agency (AFP).
Elected in June 2021 at the head of the Maison du Sport Français, Brigitte Henriques separated from her recently secretary general, plunging the CNOSF into an internal crisis. “The CNOSF and its president will not comment, says the sports body in the world. The file is in the hands of justice.”
In this complaint that AFP was able to consult, filed on September 19 or 20, the ex-president of the French Football Federation (FFF) details meetings and exchanges spread over several months with its secretary general who “shocked” it, evoking once a “threatening” behavior, and ensures that the situation is quite “badly”. >
The ex-secretary general was officially landed at the end of a vote during a board of directors of the CNOSF on September 12, but the reasons invoked remained quite vague. This divorce, unprecedented in the history of the CNOSF, resulted in an internal clan war, less than two years old from the Paris Games.
The president of the CNOSF, who has been in sick leave since Monday because of this conflict situation, is indeed faced with a strong protest wind internally, in an institution that is not used to such eddies. “She took blows for a long time, she kills herself to protect the institution but there, too much is too much,” said a source within the CNOSF.
A board of directors must be held on October 12.
