Oscar-Winning Director Paul Haggis Booked For Sexual Misconduct, Detained In Italy

Washington [US]: Oscar-winning director and screenwriter Paul Haggis was confined on Sunday on rape charges and individual injury allegations in Italy’s Ostuni town.

A ‘foreign’ woman, who was not of Italian beginning, squeezed these charges against the director, revealed The Hollywood Reporter. The lady guaranteed that Haggis had constrained her to take part in sex with him in Ostuni for two days where the director was supposed to conduct a few master classes at a Los Angeles-based event, named the Allora Fest. According to an Italian police report, the lady was subsequently brought to the Papola Casale air terminal in Italy’s Brindisi. Notwithstanding, regardless of ‘precarious physical and psychological conditions,’ she left the premises.

As indicated by The Hollywood Reporter, the air terminal team and cops helped the lady and took her to an emergency clinic. She squeezed conventional charges against Haggis after that.

Prosecutors confirmed that the woman had ‘formalized her complaint and cited circumstances which were subsequently looked into for confirmation by investigators.’ However, neither her age, nor her nationality was disclosed.

Already, Paul Haggis confronted comparative sexual unfortunate behavior allegations also. In 2018, a movie marketing specialist, Haleigh Breest sued the director for purportedly assaulting her in 2013 at his apartment after a film debut.

Afterward, three additional ladies approached and blamed Haggis for rape charges too. In any case, Haggis had denied the cases of these ladies, saying he was accustomed to shielding himself against ‘false allegations’ since he was a prominent pundit of Scientology.

Haggis is the essayist and director of 2004’s ‘Crash’, which won Academy Awards for best picture and best unique screenplay. He likewise acquired an Oscars gesture for best-adjusted screenplay for ‘Million Dollar Baby’.
