Donna Rotunno is a lawyer specialising in defending men against accusations of sexual assault. Before the verdict in the Harvey Weinstein trial she had lost only once.

Weinstein was found guilty this week of third-degree rape and a first-degree criminal sexual act.

Rotunno, nicknamed ‘The Rottweiler’, reduced one of the witnesses to tears during her cross examination. She says she is simply asking questions to get the other side of the story.

Emily Maitlis interviewed her about her reaction to the guilty verdict and asked if her view of sexual assault was out of date.

She is also joined by former Harvey Weinstein assistant and accuser Rowena Chiu for her reaction to the conviction and the comments by Rotunno.

7 WORLD EXCLUSIVE: Harvey Weinstein and his army of spies | 60 Minutes Australia

14 jan. 2020

In a major 60 MINUTES investigation, Liam Bartlett reveals an added level of Weinstein wickedness. To cover up his many crimes, the one-time Hollywood heavyweight had at his disposal a so-called “army of spies”. These “agents” collected sensitive and embarrassing information about his victims, which was then used to discredit or shut them up. Among Weinstein’s trusted allies was Australian Dylan Howard, who a few days ago went to court to try to stop his part in Bartlett’s story being broadcast. Unfortunately for Howard, he failed.

12 Affaire Weinstein : histoire d’une omerta #cdanslair 12.10.2017

12 okt. 2017

Depuis la sortie de l’enquête du New York Times jeudi dernier et la publication d’enregistrements par le New Yorker, les témoignages se multiplient contre Harvey Weinstein, le producteur-star de Hollywood, accusé par de nombreuses actrices, mannequins et assistantes, de viols, attouchements, harcèlements sexuels, exhibitionnisme et abus de pouvoir.Rosanna Arquette, Asia Agento, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Ashley Judd, Emma de Caunes, Judith Godrèche… Plus d’une vingtaine de femmes se sont exprimées depuis une semaine et les récits glaçants continuent de pleuvoir chaque jour. Le dernier en date étant celui de Léa Seydoux, ce mercredi 11 octobre au Guardian. A chaque fois le même mode opératoire est décrit : elles étaient d’abord contactées par Harvey Weinstein pour un rendez-vous à caractère professionnel – discuter d’un rôle, récupérer un scénario – où était présente une assistante. Puis, le producteur américain se débrouillait pour les isoler dans sa chambre. Depuis les révélations, Harvey Weinstein a été licencié de sa société de production et a annoncé son intention de se faire soigner en Europe, au sein d’une clinique spécialisée dans les addictions sexuelles. De nombreuses célébrités et personnalités politiques ont condamné son comportement. La police de New-York a ouvert une enquête. Mais de nombreuses questions persistent au fur et à mesure que l’affaire prend de l’ampleur : qui à Hollywood savait ? Qui ne savait pas ? Qui a laissé faire ? Est-ce le début d’un grand déballage sur les abus sexuels à Hollywood ? L’affaire est-elle en train d’éclabousser le Parti démocrate américain ? Quelles répercussions politiques ?
