A trial begins at this time for leisure mogul Gilbert Rozon, who’s accused of rape and indecent assault for acts allegedly dedicated in 1980.
The founding father of the Only for Laughs comedy pageant didn’t remark as he arrived on the Montreal courthouse this morning surrounded by a number of supporters. Rozon was charged in December 2018 with offences that allegedly occurred in Saint-Sauveur, within the Laurentians area, between June 1 and Sept. 21, 1980, when Rozon was 25.
A publication ban covers the identification of the feminine complainant, who is predicted to testify.
The fees replicate people who had been on the books on the time of the offences — rape has been changed by sexual assault within the present model of the Felony Code.
The trial is predicted to final 4 days and can happen earlier than a choose alone.
