According to index.hu, Alexandra Canosa, the onetime producer of the Marco Polo series accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and abuse, thus standing in the line of a hundred other women. In fact, she claims that Weinstein abused her several times when shooting the series in Budapest.
Canosa states that her boss harassed, abused her sexually and forced her to take part in sexual activities with him eight times during the period she worked for the Weinstein Company.
Moreover, she was several times hurt physically and humiliated verbally by the man.
One of the statements of the indictment is the following: “On the 24th of June, 2015, in the room of Harvey Weinstein in the Four Seasons Hotel in Budapest, Hungary, Harvey Weinstein assaulted the victim physically and verbally”. That was when the company was shooting some of the episodes of Marco Polo in Hungary.
The document goes on with the already known elements: Weinstein organised the “professional meeting” behind closed doors and he hurled himself at the victim, abused her in different sexual ways and raped the remonstrant woman.
Meanwhile, he threatened her that if she protested, she would lose her job and offered gains if she did not protest. He also threatened her not to talk about the case.
Canosa also sued other people such as Bob Weinstein, the younger brother of Harvey Weinstein, for not acting against the continuous abuses of the producer. She also sued the Weinstein Company, saying that they knew all the way what was happening but refused to do anything.
