English investigators said on Wednesday they had approved charges to be brought against previous Hollywood film maker Harvey Weinstein on two counts of disgusting attack against a lady quite a while back.

“Charges have been approved against Harvey Weinstein, 70, following a survey of the proof assembled by the Metropolitan Police in its examination,” said Rosemary Ainslie, top of the Crown Prosecution Service’s (CPS) Special Crime Division.

The CPS said the supposed attack occurred in August 1996 in London. London’s Metropolitan Police said the allegation included a lady, presently matured in her 50s.

“It is unusual and, surprisingly, pointless for them to deliver this data without having talked with him, given him any past divulgence in regards to the claims and not creating a genuine charge sheet, nor any arrangement of how they expect to continue with the matter,” a representative for Weinstein told Reuters by email.

“Right now we have similar data as the media.”

Weinstein is presently carrying out a 23-year jail punishment in the United States in the wake of being sentenced in 2020 for attacking previous creation right hand Mimi Haleyi and assaulting previous hopeful entertainer Jessica Mann.

That conviction was maintained by a New York requests court the week before.

The decision was viewed as a milestone in the #MeToo development where ladies approached to blame handfuls for influential men of sexual unfortunate behavior. Many view the allegations against Weinstein, which surfaced in 2017, as the critical flash for that development.

“The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all worried that criminal procedures against the litigant are dynamic and that he has the privilege to a fair preliminary,” Ainslie said.
