WANG ZHAO / AFP The Paris Court of Appeal confirmed, Tuesday, May 24, the dismissal order in favor of the producer Luc Besson, accused since May 2018 of rape by actress Sand Van Roy, who immediately appealed. “The court confirmed my client’s innocence. A dozen procedural initiatives by Ms. Van Roy all ended in the same way. Luc Besson regrets these four lost years”, declared his lawyer, Me Thierry Marembert, at the end of the deliberation. “It was a sordid news item and it becomes a state affair, which we will treat as such. I saw no justice there, only a sham justice of petty virtue. We promise to give this little justice a lesson in virtue, ”replied Me Antoine Gitton, lawyer for Ms. Sand Van Roy with Me Francis Szpiner.
