British police do not identify suspects who have not been charged.
Under New York law, making someone engage in oral sex by physical force or the threat of it is a first-degree criminal sexual act.
Maerov said that he had been prepared to investigate O'Connor's allegations but that Harvey Weinstein's lawyers told him she had withdrawn her complaint as part of a settlement.
"There's not one actress who doesn't have a story", he said, adding that he himself experienced sexual harassment by a male director when he was younger.
Beckinsale recalls that a few years later Weinstein asked her if he had tried anything with her at the first meeting. "I'm not doing OK but I'm trying".
The actress, 44, tweeted a link to the campaign on website ipetitions.com and said: "Join me in supporting this important cause at iPetitions". He said they also told him that O'Connor had submitted a letter of appreciation to the company and continued to work there for a period of time.
Amid the gravity of the situation, the Academy, which has awarded 81 Oscars to Weinstein films produced by Miramax and then the Weinstein Company, announced it would convene a meeting on Saturday to "discuss the allegations against Weinstein and any actions warranted by the Academy". The staff of Weinstein, which had released around 10 books a years, will be folded into Hachette Books. That includes reviewing police files to see if any women previously reported being assaulted or harassed by him.
The department is also encouraging anyone with information to come forward.
An avalanche of claims of sexual harassment, assault and rape by the Hollywood heavyweight have surfaced since the publication last week of an explosive New York Times report alleging a history of abusive behavior dating back decades.
Weinstein, 65, has denied all charges, according to a statement from his spokeswoman Sallie Hofmeister. It describes the allegations against Weinstein as "repugnant" and "abhorrent".
In a statement posted on Instagram she said she was left feeling "very powerless and scared" when he invited her to his hotel room. Unsurprisingly, Bob and Glasser declined to comment on the update.
Though dozens of women have told stories of sexual predation by the Hollywood mogul in the past week, beginning with reports in the New York Times and the New Yorker that blew the story open, Weinstein has never been criminally charged.
McGowan also recently called Ben Affleck "a liar" on Twitter and suggested the actor knew about Weinstein's conduct. Prime Minister Theresa May says a decision about the honour would not lie with Downing Street. "You know what, we all make mistakes", he's seen saying in a TMZ video.
He concludes with an obscenity-laced remark. "We can from this create a new paradigm where producers, managers, executives and assistants and everyone who has in the past shrugged and said "well, that's just Harvey/Mr X/insert name here" will realize that we in numbers can affect real change", she said. "Our thoughts go out the victims, to those who have had the courage to testify and to all the others".
We kinda assumed this was the case...
