French actress Valentine Monnier accuses Oscar winning director Roman Polanski of raping her

Ms Monnier waived her right to anonymity so as to describe the alleged horrific ordeal just as Polanski, 86, launches a new movie called ‘I accuse’.

She told how she feared being murdered by the film director after he ‘violently raped’ her in Gstaad, Switzerland.

Polanski is still wanted in America after pleading guilty to the statutory rape of a 13-year-old schoolgirl in 1977 and then fleeing the country.

In a detailed victim statement released through the Parisien newspaper, Ms Monnier said she now wanted to accuse Polanski of attacking her in a ski chalet in early 1975.

Responding to the claims, a lawyer for the director said: ‘Roman Polanski firmly denies all accusations of rape.’

Ms Monnier, who is now 62, said: ‘In 1975 I was raped by Roman Polanski. I had no link with him, neither personnel, nor professional, and I hardly knew him.

‘It happened extremely violently, after we got back to his chalet in Gstaad, Switzerland, from skiing.

‘He hit me, beat me until I surrendered, and then raped me and put me through all kinds of vicissitudes. I had just turned 18’.

She feared ‘I would die’, because the already world famous Polanski would want to keep his crime secret by murdering her.

According to Vulture, Polanski fled the U.S. for France in early 1978 before he could be sentenced for his conviction for unlawful sex with then-13-year-old Samantha Geimer in 1977. Polanski has continued to make movies since — often with high-profile talent — and was only expelled from the Academy recently, in May 2018 alongside Bill Cosby. Polanski has since tried to sue for his readmittance. Polanski’s French attorney also denied Monnier’s allegations to Le Parisien and said that he deplored the publication of these allegations 44 years after the fact so close to the release of Polanski’s latest film.

Monnier is the fourth woman to accuse Polanski of sexual assault since the initial statutory rape claim. In 2017, Polanski was accused of raping former German actress Renate Langer in Gstaad in 1972, when she was 15.

Man Gets His Racist Tattoos Removed After Becoming A Dad

Bryon Widner by name, became a skinhead at the age of 14, and he spent 16 years involved with racist organizations in the midwest. He earned the nickname of “pit bull”, and went on to co-found Vinlanders Social Club, a white power group in Indiana.

Vinlanders soon gained a reputation for excessive violence and became one of the fastest-growing racist skinhead organizations in the US.

In 2005, Widner married Julie Larsen and a year later, the couple had a son. The responsibilities of fatherhood gave Widner the desire to reform and leave the racist movement, a desire shared by his new wife.

Widner took the decision to leave the neo-nazi group, but it took years of death threats and harassment before he felt that he was finally becoming “human again.”

Widner’s attempts to become part of regular society were understandably made more difficult by his many facial tattoos, which were both intimidating and openly racist. His wife Julie was afraid that he would do something extreme to erase hi…

Man Stops Drinking Alcohol, Narrates How Much Sobriety Changed Him In 3 Years

Giving up your vices and guilty pleasures can lead to a happier and healthier life that’s full of purpose.
