One of the biggest fortunes in France, Jacques Bouthier, has been in prison since Saturday May 21. The group creator Insurance 2000aged 75, was indicted and imprisoned for “rape of a minor” and “trafficking in human beings”.

Jacques Bouthier, one of the greatest figures in the world of insurance, was indicted and imprisoned for rape of a minor and human trafficking. He is the founder of the insurance brokerage group Vilavi, ex-Assu 2000, and the 487th fortune in France, estimated at 160 million euros. In March 2022, a 22-year-old woman went to a Paris police station to file a complaint. She said she was raped for five years by the businessman, and held captive in one of his apartments. “I was getting too old for him. (…) Jacques Bouthier forced me to find a replacement”she said.

According to her, a 14-year-old girl suffered the same fate. It would be an isolated teenager, in family breakdown, who would have been approached in a squat. To confirm the statements, the complainant would have entrusted a compromising video to the investigators. An association for the protection of minors has instituted civil proceedings, denouncing “modern slavery”. Before his arrest, Jacques Bouthier would have tried to recover the compromising video, and planned to remove his accuser. The big boss has resigned as CEO.
