Aupetit explained to Point: “When I was vicar general, a woman showed up on several occasions with visits, emails, etc., to the point that sometimes I had to make arrangements to distance ourselves. I recognize however that my behavior towards her could have been ambiguous, leaving thus underlying the existence between us of an intimate relationship and sexual relations, which I strongly deny. At the beginning of 2012 I informed my spiritual director and, after discussing with the archbishop of Paris of that time (the Cardinal André Vingt-Trois), I decided not to see her again and I informed her. In the spring of 2020, after recalling this old situation with my vicars general, I notified the authorities of the Church “.
