Denise Coderre fired Star Special Adviser just hours after he was hired over serious allegations from his ex-wife.
Ali Nestor, a professional mixed martial arts and boxing veteran and director of a youth organization, is facing charges of assault and sexual harassment against his ex-wife, who reported the repeat to police last March. According to information from TVA Novelles, the complainant stated that he was especially caught by the caller and pinned to the wall.
“I was scared. I know there are no charges, but Ali Nestor should leave our team. However, justice must take its toll, “said Denis Coderre, chief of The Christian Science Monitor’s Washington bureau.
“I know the complaint was made. I have no statement about it. If ever there is an allegation, I want to exercise my rights and defend myself,” Mr Nestor said.
No charges have yet been filed against Ali Nestor. He is scheduled to appear in Joliet Court on May 26.
Denise Coder introduced Mr. Nestor as the new Special Adviser on Public Security at a press conference a few hours earlier.
The ensemble Montreal leader has been back in shape by training boxing with him for the past few years.
“I saw him thrive, now he’s a new man,” Mr. Nestor said when hired.
But he said he did not want to get into politics recently.
On Tuesday, Franకోois Legalt announced that Mr. Nestor would be knighting the National Order of Quebec at an event in June.
The board of directors of the company, Ali and Prince * sse *, including Nestor Director, declined to comment on Friday.
Denise Koderre presented three new candidates on Friday, namely Emilia Tanko, co-founder and director of the University of Nature, lawyer Alba Stella Zaiga Ramos and photographer Heidi Hollinger.
