Despite the controversy, Guy Vallancien remains a member of the Bronner commission – RT in French

Professor Guy Vallancien, who was at the heart of the mass grave scandal at Paris-Descartes University and that of the Mediator, is confirmed as a member of the Bronner commission. This body is supposed to fight against fake news and conspiracy.

Sociologist Gérald Bronner, chairman of the eponymous commission, confirmed on October 5 to France Inter that the much criticized Guy Vallancien will remain a member of his delegation created with the aim of fighting against fake news and conspiracy theories. The presence within this commission of this urologist and surgeon was strongly criticized as soon as his composition was announced. The eminent professor and member of the Academy of Medicine Guy Vallancien having, among others, recently been blamed by the Order of Physicians for having drawn up a “false” medical certificate.

From the Paris-Descartes mass grave to the Mediator

His detractors also reproach him for his involvement in two scandals, in particular that of the donation of bodies from Paris-Descartes University – of which he was the director for ten years (2004-2014) – which had singularly shocked public opinion. At issue: until 2018, the body donation center of this university had, according to the revelations of The Express and Radio France, lodged several thousand remains in undignified conditions. This resounding scandal had moreover inherited an explicit name: “the case of the mass grave of Paris-Descartes”.

The Express then noted the role played by Professor Guy Vallancien, former official in charge of several ministers of health and by his limited company – the European School of Surgery, created in 2001 within the University. It resold bodies in particular to manufacturers for their own tests, in the manner of automobile crash tests.

Guy Vallancien, 75, for his part denounced a “disinformation” concerning him. He ensures in particular that under his direction, “several beneficial measures were decided and carried out […] to provide families with treatment that is more respectful of the last wishes of their loved ones ”.

Guy Vallancien is also accused by Irène Frachon, the whistleblower in the Mediator affair, of having been one of the “spearheads of a nebula of high-ranking doctors who, for years and shamelessly , try to discredit, minimize or even deny the seriousness of the human tragedy caused by the Mediator ”. If Vallancien considers that the question was debated, Irène Frachon, contacted by France Inter, retorts that “it is a rhetorical dodging which is specific to the logic of negationism”. “It creates a diversion: it worked with the commission, and it is unfortunately very worrying,” she laments.

Guy Vallancien will therefore remain a member of the Bronner commission, after having “heard at length” on these controversial issues, explained Gérald Bronner. On October 3, the sociologist who has the confidence of Emmanuel Macron, announced this hearing, while denouncing “malicious spirits who x-ray each of the members, and find a certain number of things”.
