That teacher touched, pushed and hit him, “He was sexually aroused and touched himself” as he did so, the Frenchman revealed.

“I am not ashamed when I admit that I felt like a coward for many years not to talk about it. It was something that was squeezing my chest. But this is not for me, but for the children. I don’t want anyone to feel ashamed for experiencing something like this ”, said.

He, for various family reasons, was forced to stay three nights with that teacher from his childhood and his mother ignored the situation until one fine day she decided not to hide it anymore.

“The hardest thing was telling my mother. She said she was sorry she hadn’t noticed and that if (the teacher) was still alive, she would kill him “, he continued. Evra, in order not to say anything to her, was only trying to convince her not to return to that man’s house.

He also regretted not speaking to the police, when they once approached him to discuss the matter as that teacher was being investigated for several similar complaints. “I regret that decision,” he said.

He has never thought to go to trial for that ordeal and decided to bury her. But he did send a message to children who have been sexually abused.

“If you are a child, you read this and they are abusing you, do not be afraid: tell about it. Don’t be ashamed, because there is no shame. Deal with the situation by talking about what is happening ”, he closed.
