Court denies Gerard Depardieu’s request to probe him after being accused of rape


A Paris court has denied Gérard Depardieu’s request to drop an investigation into him following a rape allegation.

Rose researchers stopped their initial investigation into the French actor in 2019 due to a lack of evidence.

They then continued the case when a new complaint was filed with the police.

The proceedings were resumed after the complainant declared “an injured party”.

After initially making the allegation anonymously, actress Charlotte Arnould later revealed that she had filed a complaint, saying she “couldn’t stand being silent any longer”.

Although Depardieu asked for the case to be dropped, the Paris court of appeal decided to uphold the investigation.

“The Investigation Bureau considers that there are serious and consistent indications that Gerard Depardieu is still under investigation,” the statement was released on Thursday (March 10).

The actor had previously “firmly denied” the accusations, through his attorney. So far, Depardieu has not been prosecuted.

Depardieu is known for his roles in Cyrano de Bergerac and The Last Metro.

His performance in Cyrano de Bergerac earned him the award for Best Actor at the 1990 Cannes Film Festival, as well as a nomination in the Best Actor category at the Academy Awards that same year. .
