Questioned by some of his peers, Professor Guy Vallancien, a urologist, announced Thursday, October 7 to Agence France-Presse (AFP) his withdrawal from the commission on conspiracy and disinformation created recently by Emmanuel Macron.
"I am withdrawing from the commission Les Lumières à l'époque numérique", declared the M. Vallancien, who denounces a "shameful campaign of despicable and false denigration" after his appointment to this body composed of fifteen academics and personalities, and chaired by the sociologist Gérald Bronner.

This renowned urologist who treated former President François Mitterrand had just been implicated by the pulmonologist and whistleblower Irène Frachon, who reproaches him for having "denied the gravity" of the Mediator's case.
