It’s a good thing today will be full of photos of adorable and/or elaborate costumes, because there’s yet another update on the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal. The transAtlantic investigation into sexual assault allegations against the fallen studio mogul has just widened its scope, as Variety reports that London police are now looking into 11 incidents that span more than three decades.
London police are now looking into claims from seven accusers both in and out of the United Kingdom in an investigation that’s been dubbed Operation Kaguyak. Law enforcement in Los Angeles, New York, and London kicked off new investigations into some decades-old claims against Weinstein in the days after the New York Times and New Yorker released their bombshell exposés. The latest allegation out of London reportedly took place in 1994, but there are also multiple women who say they were assaulted on multiple occasions by Weinstein in the last 10 years.
BAFTA recently suspended Weinstein’s membership and now, according to Variety, British lawmakers are interested in “rescinding Weinstein’s title of Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, an honor bestowed on him by Queen Elizabeth II in 2004 for his contribution to the arts.”
