Luc Besson accused of rape: the judge dismisses the case
Sylvie Claire / December 9, 2021
An investigating judge of the Paris judicial court has dismissed the case of filmmaker Luc Besson, accused of rape for three years by the actress Sand Van Roy, sources close to the case said Thursday.
The magistrate followed the recommendations of the Paris prosecutor's office, which had called in early October for the prosecution to be dropped in this highly publicized case. The 62-year-old filmmaker, who has always contested the facts, had not been indicted but only placed under the less incriminating status of assisted witness.
