The shock revelations continue at the trial of Harvey Weinstein.
Rose McGowan had reported on former Mossad agents hired by Harvey Weinstein to quell the charges against him, and this new day of trial has just confirmed his claims. Lawyer Dev Sen, of the New York firm Boies Schiller Flexner, testified at the producer’s trial. He confirmed that his law firm put Harvey Weinstein in touch with the private detective company Black Cube, the agents of which are mostly former members of the Israeli secret service.
The lawyer said at the bar that Boies Schiller Flexner and Black Cube signed a contract on July 11, 2017, three months before the article was published by the New York Times . The terms were passed “according to Weinstein’s instructions,” as the Guardian relays .
Prevent publication at all costs
Black Cube’s mission was clear: “to provide the information that will help the client’s efforts to completely stop publishing a new negative article in a prominent New York newspaper.” If successful, it is stated that “Black Cube will receive a bonus of $ 300,000”.
Another subject of inquiry requested by Harvey Weinstein: Annabella Sciorra. The Sopranos actress testified at the stand last week . She also participated in the New York Times article that caused the fall of the producer and the #MeToo movement . The involvement of former Mossad agents in suppressing charges against Harvey Weinstein was also exposed by Ronan Farrow in a New Yorker article , which appeared in conjunction with that of the New York Times .
Harvey Weinstein has been charged by hundreds of women with rape, harassment and sexual assault. He is currently on trial in Manhattan following complaints filed by two of them, Jessica Mann and Miriam Haleyi, for facts located in 2006 and 2013. The former Miramax boss has pleaded not guilty and faces life imprisonment.
