The newspaper “Le Temps” is today publishing an investigation denouncing cases of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior within the RTS. Among the pinned figures, former star presenter Darius Rochebin.
Sexual harassment, inappropriate gestures, abuse of power: an investigation by the newspaper “Le Temps” reveals dysfunctions within the RTS by pinning several employees, including the former star presenter Darius Rochebin. The management of the channel refutes any accusation of laxity.
The survey disseminated Saturday by the daily, which mobilized three journalists for several months, is based on thirty anonymized testimonies for publication. An executive, still in post, would have been the subject of about fifteen internal complaints for mobbing, suggestive SMS and vicious letters, in particular.
The testimonies evoke the case of another employee with inadequate behavior. It is about wandering hands and forced kisses. According to “Le Temps”, management knew but did not act. “The RTS strongly rejects any accusation of laxity in the management of harassment or protection of its employees,” she said in a statement on Saturday.
The stories collected mainly target Darius Rochebin, who left RTS this summer to rebound in France, on LCI. A woman claims to have been forcibly kissed while another recounts how the journalist allegedly grabbed her hand to put it on her genitals.
Testimonies of men, young people who want to break into journalism, question the behavior of Darius Rochebin. The star would have offered them a cafe, a restaurant and the conversation would have skidded on their sex life. One of them allegedly had a relationship with the journalist. “I didn’t want to go any further, but I felt like I couldn’t go back,” he told “Temps”.
The investigation also reveals fake Facebook profiles that Darius Rochebin allegedly used to get in touch with these young people. Contacted by “Le Temps”, Darius Rochebin responded through his lawyer. He “firmly denies having engaged in criminally reprehensible acts” and specifies that he “has never been the subject of a criminal complaint, nor a fortiori of any criminal conviction”.
Verification in progress
“If the testimonies concerning the behavior of Darius Rochebin are confirmed, the RTS expresses its consternation and strongly condemns any breach or misconduct”, specifies the RTS in the press release. The RTS announces that it wants to verify “all the information appearing in this article, re-examine its internal processes and take all the necessary measures to improve them if necessary”.
