A 49-year-old man spied on his female colleagues for three years in the toilets at the Ineo company. Licensed since, he was tried this Friday.
Vicious, he traumatized his many victims. A 49-year-old man was tried this Friday morning by the Toulouse Criminal Court. Between 2015 and 2018, within the Ineo company in Basso-Cambo in Toulouse, he had installed a clever system in order to be able to observe his female colleagues when they showered or went to the toilet. Through holes concealed by felt in the trunk of a flushing toilet, the man rinsed his eye. And, to make sure that they would use the correct toilet, he managed to urinate, leaving dirty words and pornographic magazines in the other toilet.
Shy in front of his judges, the man with the pronounced baldness considers his feet, behind his glasses when his victims very moved, in tears, relate to their trauma. “I think about it every day. I used these toilets every day for 6 years, describes one of them. After the discovery of the facts, I was very afraid. I did an internship of self-defense. I was afraid to take the elevator and be with him. I have been angry for 6 years. I have been asked to shut up. I still cannot forgive these injustices. For 6 years years, I feel humiliated. One day, with my colleagues, we decided to type “toilet voyeurism” on Google. Don’t do it! It’s filthy! For 3 years, I have felt pride, because, if we are here today, it is thanks to us. We did not give up when everything urged us to do so. “
“In 2015, I discovered the fear, expresses his colleague. The real one. The fear of knowing that my privacy has been broken. That the place where I spent my days was not safe. We were not believed. . We were asked not to say anything. We were abandoned and our suffering was denied. It was not until 2018 that an extraordinary police officer listened to us “. Because, initially, the complaints were dismissed by the public prosecutor and the man continued to work alongside his victims for three years.
The voice weak, the voyeur answers the questions of the president. “It’s very traumatic to be there today. I am ashamed with everyone. I find it difficult to return to Toulouse, for fear of meeting someone who recognizes me”. “How many times a day did you go?” “I went because I had impulses that I couldn’t control. I apologize to them. I didn’t mean to hurt them. “
My Thierry Dalmasso and Philippe Goossens represent the employer. “We wanted to be with the victims and assure them of our solidarity. Have we done enough? Of course not. We have not been able to take the measure of this phenomenon. “For the victims, Me Delphine Chanut, underlines their” courage, their pride in having fought. They are combatants! “The lawyer of the defendant, Me Emilie Toussaint describes” a mental illness: voyeurism “.
He was sentenced to 18 months in prison, 12 of which were suspended on probation. The firm part will be carried out at home under an electronic bracelet. He has the obligation to take care of himself.
