NYPD to Re-Examine Harvey Weinstein Sexual Assault Probe, Sources Say

The organisation have "informed" the disgraced producer - who was sacked from his own Weinstein Company earlier this week in the wake of a New York Times expose, which claimed he had sexually harassed a number of women over a 30-year period and paid off at least eight to keep their allegations quiet - of their decision and admitted they felt his alleged actions were "completely unacceptable and incompatible" with their own values.

"In case you didn't realize, it has been a huge week for women", the "Full Frontal" host said at the top of the show. Unsurprisingly, Bob and Glasser declined to comment on the update. Maerov said that his chief concern had been whether Harvey Weinstein's behaviour posed a legal liability for the business, and that after receiving assurances that no company money was used and that no complaints against Weinstein were pending, he had approved the contract. "He overpowered me", Evans said of her meeting with the film producer at his office.

They say the decision was made "in light of new information about misconduct". She said that when she rang the bell of Weinstein's Westport, Connecticut, home she was shocked to see him in nothing but the undergarments when he answered the door.

On Weinstein, the 79-year-old said: "I wish I had spoken out ... Mr. Weinstein's pattern of mistreating women, as recounted in recent reports, is disgraceful and shocks the conscience".

The latest allegations portray Weinstein as a ruthless sexual predator, who on at least one occasion sought to engage an actress in a threesome with another woman. "Sexual harassment is rampant in every profession imaginable".

IEA Boosts Renewable Energy Forecast, but Trump Tax Plan Might Hurt Industry
Looking ahead, IEA said China, India and the USA would account for two-thirds of worldwide renewable expansion by 2022. Though coal will still be the largest source of electricity generation in 2022, renewables cut that gap in half.

The actress said she was called to meet with the movie mogul at the hotel when she was 17 years old. He said they also told him that O'Connor had submitted a letter of appreciation to the company and continued to work there for a period of time.

He recalled being told of the existence of other settlements, but never their details. "And when they are famous and powerful like Harvey then it gets talked about and so it's really important that those women have been courageous enough to come out", Fonda said. Male actors, including James Van Der Beek and Terry Crews, have also tweeted about their experiences and why victims often feel powerless to come forward. "Because I knew what kind of man he was all along".

In a statement Thursday, guild President Beau Willimon and Executive Director Lowell Peterson condemned Harvey Weinstein's "deplorable" behavior and said that "sexual harassment and assault have always been hallmarks of the entertainment industry".

Over the last week, four members seen as friendly with Harvey Weinstein have left the board.

Weinstein says he is taking a "leave of absence" from The Weinstein Company and is working with a therapist. Two days later, they fired him, and began discussing changing the company's name and removing him from the credits of upcoming projects.
