PARIS - Two French women are filing legal complaints against a government minister they accuse of sexual harassment, apparently encouraged to speak up after the recent arrest of Dominique Strauss-Kahn in sex crime charges.

Gilbert Collard, lawyer for the women, said he had submitted the complaints against Civil Service Minister Georges Tron to a public prosecutor this week and he confirmed to Reuters that the accusation was sexual harassment.

Tron's lawyer, Olivier Schnerb, dismissed the complaints and said he had been instructed to respond by filing a slander complaint in return.

Tron himself told Reuters he had informed Prime Minister Francois Fillon about the matter, adding that the plaintiffs were women who had been dismissed from their town hall posts.
