Scotland Yard examining two more claims of sexual assault against Harvey Weinstein


British police investigating Harvey Weinstein are now looking at two further allegations of sexual assault, sources said.

The most recent allegations were made to police in November, but have only now been made public.

One the two attacks is alleged to have taken place in Westminster in 2011 while the other was outside of the jurisdiction of the UK and will be passed on to the relevant force, Scotland Yard said.

It comes on the same day that Kill Bill star Uma Thuman became the latest to publicly allege that Weinstein assaulted her.

She said the producer assaulted her in a London hotel room after the release of Pulp Fiction. There was also another attack in which he threatened to derail her career, she told the New York Times.

Weinstein has denied the allegations.

News of the latest Scotland Yard investigations means that at least nine women are now known to have made allegations against Weinstein to UK police.

A spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police said: “On November 13 an allegation was received that the man sexually assaulted a woman (Victim 9) in Westminster in 2011 and outside the jurisdiction of the UK in 2010.

“The second allegation will be passed to the relevant police force in due course.”
