Paul Haggis pleads innocent“And the relations with the woman who accuses him were”consensual“. He is the defense attorney of the Oscar winner, currently under house arrest in Ostuni for sexual assault, to break the silence around the position of his client. “As expected, Haggis answered all questions, he explained how the facts went and declared himself completely innocentand, as he did in the immediacy of the arrest ”, explained the lawyer Michele Laforgia who in the past few hours has joined Haggis in front of the investigating judge Vilma Gilli. “The relationships he had with this woman are totally consensual during these three days spent together in Ostuni. And we also clarified contrary to what is assumed in the charges that there is no injury or sign of violence “, added Laforgia at the end of the interrogation of validation of the detention occurred at the court of Brindisi. The criminal lawyer from Bari then focuses on the possibility that the report of the Emergency Department where the girl was examined following the complaint had been “misinterpreted”. The 69-year-old Canadian director and screenwriter had been detained in recent days by the police with the allegations of aggravated sexual assault and personal injury against an English woman. The facts would happen in a bed and breakfast in Ostuni where Haggis had arrived early and then attended the newborn Then Fest. The judge will now have to rule on the arrest of the director and the request of the prosecution so that the house arrest is maintained pending the urgent investigations and in particular the evidentiary incident.
