Tentative $25 million deal’ reached between Harvey Weinstein and some of his accusers

Harvey Weinstein is reported to have reached a $25 million civil settlement with dozens of women who’ve accused him of sexual misconduct and rape.

But his accusers have reacted with anger to the fact that the disgraced Hollywood mogul will not be paying any of the damages himself.

He will still face a criminal trial in the new year on five charges – two of them for rape. He denies them all.

Mr Weinstein’s former assistant has told this programme that she is furious that Mr Weinstein is still being protected by his wealth.
