Valentine Monnier accuses Oscar-winning director Roman Polanski of raping her ‘extremely violently
French actress Valentine Monnier accused Oscar-winning director Roman Polanski of raping her when she was 18 in a ski chalet. Ms. Monnier gave up her right to anonymity to describe the supposed terrible experience, just when Polanski, 86, launches a new movie called “Accusation.” She told how she feared being killed by the film director after she “violently raped her” in Gstaad, Switzerland. Polanski is still wanted in the United States after pleading guilty to the legal violation of a 13-year-old schoolgirl in 1977 and then fleeing the country. In a detailed statement of the victim published by the Parisien newspaper, Monnier said he now wanted to accuse Polanski of attacking her in a ski chalet in early 1975.
“Valentine Monnier assures that the filmmaker raped her in 1975. Several witnesses confirm her story. This is the first French to accuse the director, who disputes the facts.”

In response to the claims, a lawyer for the director said: “Roman Polanski strongly denies all allegations of rape.” Ms. Monnier, now 62, said: 1975 In 1975 I was raped by Roman Polanski. He had no connection with him, neither personal nor professional and hardly knew him.
‘It happened extremely violently, after we got back to his chalet in Gstaad, Switzerland, from skiing.
‘He hit me, beat me until I surrendered, and then raped me and put me through all kinds of vicissitudes. I had just turned 18’.
He was afraid he would “die,” because the famous Polanski would want to keep his crime a secret by killing her.
Monnier, who now lives in New York, said he was finally speaking after 44 years due to Polanski’s hypocrisy. The Franco-Polish director, who became famous with films like ‘Rosemary’s Baby’, ‘Chinatown’ and ‘The Pianist’, has just made ‘J’accuse’ (‘Accusation’) about Alfred Dreyfus, the convicted and imprisoned Jewish officer by false evidence in the late nineteenth century. Dreyfus was accused of smuggling secrets from the French army to the Germans in a notorious case of anti-Semitism before he was finally released.

Monnier said she was disgusted by the way Polanski was using the “J’accuse” plot to allegedly reflect her own case in the United States. He pleaded guilty to the legal violation of a 13-year-old schoolgirl and then fled the country. She said: “Is it sustainable, under the pretext of a movie, under the cover of the story, to listen to the person who has marked you for life to say” Accusation “, while preventing you, the victim, to accuse him?” Describing the crime of rape as a “time bomb,” Monnier said the “traumatic memory” of what Polanski, father of two children, did to him would never disappear. She felt guilty about what happened for decades and was too scared to go to the authorities. Polanski also apologized to her in a torrent of tears, while other guests in the chalet also encouraged her to remain silent. Due to the 20-year statute of limitations in France, Polanski cannot be prosecuted for a crime that allegedly took place in 1975. Marlene Schiappa, Minister of Equality of France, confirmed that Polanski could not be arrested on charges.

Referring to Switzerland, where they allegedly raped Monnier, Schiappa said: ‘I cannot intervene in legal proceedings in another country. However, I wish to express my full support for your courageous approach. ” Monnier said she was invited on the 1975 trip to the Alps by a girlfriend who knew Polanski, and that she found herself alone on a ski lift with the director when she used rude language to ask: ‘Do you want to have sex? ‘ She said no, but that night Polanski arrived naked in her room and took off her clothes before raping her. “I was completely shocked,” said Valentine. ‘I weighed 50 kilos [7.8 stone] – Polanski was small but muscular and, at 42, was in the prime of life. He took the lead in two minutes. ” Ms. Monnier explained: “I said to myself: it is Roman Polanski, you cannot run the risk of this being known, so you will have to kill me.”
