We can expect to hear more details from accusers this week and perhaps even new accusations as The Weinstein Company has officially dissolved their infamous nondisclosure agreements with employees.
TWC chairman Bob Weinstein said in a statement (in which he also announced the company's bankruptcy filing): "Harvey Weinstein used non-disclosure agreements as a secret weapon to silence his accusers. Effective immediately, those ‘agreements’ end."
Brother of Harvey, Bob Weinstein said the company "expressly releases any confidentiality provision to the extent it has prevented individuals who suffered or witnessed any form of sexual misconduct by Harvey Weinstein from telling their stories. No one should be afraid to speak out or coerced to stay quiet.
"The Company thanks the courageous individuals who have already come forward. Your voices have inspired a movement for change across the country and around the world."
New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who sued the TWC board which blocked a $500 million sale, praised the company’s move as a "watershed moment".
"The Weinstein Company’s agreement to release victims of and witnesses to sexual misconduct from non-disclosure agreements — which my office has sought throughout this investigation and litigation — will finally enable voices that have for too long been muzzled to be heard," Schneiderman said.
