Director of disability advocacy organization charged with sexual harassment, assault and threats

Olivier Collomb d'Irames, a well-known figure in the defense of the rights of the disabled in the Quebec region, appeared in a Quebec court on Thursday to answer the charges of sexual harassment, assault and threats.

The 46-year-old is the general director of the community organization ROP03, a regrouping of organizations for the disabled in the Capitale-National region.

He is accused of sexually assaulting a woman between January 2018 and the summer of 2021.

During the same period, Olivier Collomb-d'Irames also assaulted his victim, including threatening to kill or physically harm her. The accused were also charged with a fourth count of felony harassment.

However, the facts alleged against Mr Collomb-d'Irames were not related to his employment at ROP03.

The person was absent during attendance on Thursday. His attorney announced his intention to hold a jury trial and requested a preliminary investigation.

The case will return to court on February 16 to fix a date for further hearing.

Collomb-D'Eyrames is a well-known face in the community world of the Greater Quebec region, having been involved for many years in protecting the rights of people with disabilities.
