Scotland Yard has received another report against Harvey Weinstein, this time from a Westminster woman who claims Weinstein sexually assaulted her in the 1990s. This brings the total of cases London police are investigating against Weinstein to ten.


The Guardian reports that Scotland Yard has not actually named Weinstein, but has confirmed there are now ten cases under Operation Kaguyak, which is the code for the Weinstein investigation. Variety received a similar statement from the Metropolitan Police:

“Officers from the Met’s Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command have received allegations of sexual assault from 10 victims under Operation Kaguyak,” the Met said Wednesday in a statement issued to Variety. “On 8 February an allegation was received that the man sexually assaulted a woman (Victim 10) in Westminster in the mid-1990s.”

It added: “There has been no arrest at this stage or interviews under caution.”

There was another alleged victim who named Weinstein to the UK police, but the alleged assault took place in Ireland, so she was referred to their investigative team. Weinstein is also being investigated in Los Angeles and by the NYPD.
