THE LONDON Metropolitan Police have forwarded a sexual misconduct allegation against Harvey Weinsten to An Garda Síochána for investigation.
According to The Irish Times, the complaint was first made in the UK by Irish woman Laura Madden who previously worked for Weinstein’s Miramax Hollywood movie company.
The Metropolitan Police said they were investigating complaints against Weinstein by another two women.
The complaints were made in Britain last October and November. However, at least two of them had not been known about before now and the details of some of the others were also unknown.
The incidents occurred in the Republic in 1991, Westminster in 2011 and in another unknown jurisdiction in 2010.
The alleged sexual assault in the Republic was sent on to the Garda late last year for investigation.
The Garda told the newspaper it could not comment on any named individuals, “nor do we comment on, confirm or deny any communications with police forces in other jurisdictions”.
Details of separate Weinstein allegations reported to the British police surfaced last weekend after actor Uma Thurman spoke about Weinstein.
