According to the AFP, the 72-year-old giant of French cinema was indicted on December 16 and himself denies the allegations.
According to AFP, the actress filed a criminal complaint in August 2018, when she told the police that Depardieu had raped her twice a few days ago in her place of residence in Paris. The Paris prosecutor’s office first closed the case in June 2019 after nine months of preliminary investigation, but the plaintiff woman last August demanded the resumption of the investigation, which was entrusted to the investigating judge.
The actor denies everything
The actress claims that Depardieu, who has also had Russian citizenship since 2013, committed rape and sexual aggression on August 7 and 13, 2018 at a hotel in VI. Paris district.
Actor Hervé Témime’s lawyer told AFP that Depardieu, who is being investigated at large, completely refuses to commit the acts he is accused of. According to a source familiar with the investigation file, Depardieu is a friend of the victim’s family, which is between 20 and 30 years old.
