"The actor canceled his visit by explaining that he did not want to answer any questions about the director's new rape charge," writes USAinformations.
In a testimony published by The Parisian Friday night, Valentine Monnier, photographer, former model and who also played in some movies in the 80s, accuses Roman Polanski of having hit and raped in 1975 in Switzerland when she was eighteen.
"Mr. Polanski strongly contests this charge of rape, "said his lawyer Herve Temime in a statement sent to AFP on Sunday.
"We are working on the judicial follow-up to this publication," said the lawyer, who said that the director "will not participate in the media court and (him) not more".
Valentine Monnier, whose accusations add to those of other women in recent years, all also denied by Roman Polanski, said not to have filed a complaint for these facts, prescribed. But she claims to have decided to publicly bear this accusation because of the theme of the film due out Wednesday, namely a miscarriage of justice.
