The UK’s Crown Prosecution Service said on Wednesday it had authorized London’s Metropolitan Police to charge the 70-year-old following a review of evidence gathered by the force in its investigation.

In a statement Wednesday, Rosemary Ainslie, head of the CPS Special Crime Division, said the CPS has “authorized the Metropolitan Police to charge Harvey Weinstein with two counts of indecent assault against a woman in August 1996.” 

Ainslie said the charges were authorized following “a review of the evidence gathered by the Metropolitan Police in its investigation.” 

The police force said in a statement the two alleged offenses took place between July 31 and August 31, 1996 and that the alleged victim is a woman who is now in her 50s.
