Four people were indicted on Saturday in Paris for “Rape, aggravated procuring and aggravated human trafficking”, a judicial source said on Monday (October 19th). Two of them were imprisoned, including a famous producer in the pornographic industry. According to the same source, five potential victims have been identified for the acts of “Rape, aggravated procuring and aggravated human trafficking”.
The actor, director and producer nicknamed “Pascal OP” is also being sued for “Aggravated pimping laundering and tax fraud laundering”, also for ” hidden work “, said a source familiar with the matter. The latter is renowned for its French Bukkake pornographic video platform.
The four suspects were arrested Tuesday and taken into custody in the premises of the research section of the Paris gendarmerie, responsible for the investigation, said the judicial source. Two of them were also indicted for “Distribution of the recording of images relating to the commission of a willful attack on the integrity of the person”, according to the judicial source.
At the end of the police custody, two individuals, including “Pascal OP”, were placed in pre-trial detention and the other two under judicial supervision. A fifth person, also arrested Tuesday, is not being prosecuted.
This new case concerning the porn industry is separate from the investigation for “Rapes” and “Pimping” which since July 10 has been targeting the production of videos for the Jacquie et Michel site, the incarnation of the amateur porn scene in France.
In this case, three feminist associations – Dare feminism !, Les Effronté-es and Le Mouvement du Nid – had made a report to the courts in February after the broadcast of a video by the site Konbini. In this document entitled The sordid backstage of amateur porn, two women testified to sexual practices imposed against their will during filming.
