Yannick Buttet is again under fire from critics. Laude-Camille Chanton, president of the General Council of Monthey, denounces his sexist attitude towards her.
It was last Tuesday after a drunken evening that Yannick Butter would have allowed himself inappropriate remarks and gestures, explains Laude-Camille Chanton, president of the General Council of Monthey in the daily “The Nouvelliste“. A testimony which adds to the liabilities of the president of Collombey-Muraz. “On several occasions and in spite of my remonstrances, Yannick Buttet spent his hands on my back, my neck and my thighs,” points out the president. And to add: “I was uncomfortable. He does not regard a woman as a seducer, but as a predator. It is very disturbing ”. Laude-Camille Chanton’s companion, Xavier Mottet, second PLR vice-president of the Grand Conseil, has also decided to defend his friend.
As for Yannick Butter, he affirms that his exchanges with the Montheysanne were rather cordial and sympathetic. Nothing to do with a potential aggression, therefore. He admits, however, that the evening was quite alcoholic. He also denounces the aggressiveness of Xavier Mottet against him. Finally, for Yannick Buttet, this affair is above all akin to “political instrumentalisation”. The former national advisor explains: “My main opponent, the PLR Alexis Turin, is Xavier Mottet’s uncle. He is targeting the presidency of Collombey-Muraz and it is no coincidence that this story has leaked into the press ”. Statements deemed “free” by Alexis Turin. “It’s a sad defense. What concerns me is that his behavior has not changed and that he is making new victims to whom all my thoughts and support go ”.
