As she has done on several occasions about Noël Le Graët, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra did not take long to react to the Bruno Martini case, prosecuted for “corruption of a minor” and “recording of child pornography images” . The Minister of Sports indicated on her Twitter account that she was “deeply shocked” by these serious accusations to which the 52-year-old president of the National Handball League (NHL) must respond.
“The handball authorities quickly mobilized and met this Wednesday at 1 p.m. around an exceptional steering committee of the NHL, in the presence of the French Handball Federation, specifies the Minister of Sports. I have full confidence in the fact that they will take all the necessary decisions, both in terms of disciplinary sanctions and the future of governance. »
Amélie Oudéa-Castéra concludes her message with “a very moved thought for the boy and his family”, who have “all his support”. The victim is a teenager (13 years old at the time of the events, in the summer of 2020), whom Bruno Martini admitted to the investigators, having approached on a social network, while specifying that he thought that this one was over 15 years old. After two days in police custody, the former goalkeeper of the France team was released, and he could plead guilty before his appearance. A sentence of less than five years in prison and a fine of 75,000 euros would be offered to him in this case.
