Ex-French ambassador to Vanuatu to face sex assault accusers

Former French Ambassador to Vanuatu Robby Judes was expected to face the New Caledonian women who alleged that he sexually assaulted them yesterday.

According to French radio, this has been arranged to happen at the French High Commission in Noumea.

Mr Judes was recalled to Paris in February after a senior New Caledonian businesswoman Cherifa Linossier made the first allegation.

The foreign ministry sacked him last month but he rejects the allegations, saying there may a plot against him.

Ms Linossier said seven other women reported to her that they were also harassed by him.
