The preliminary investigation into Luc Besson which was launched in May 2018 following an allegation of rape against the French film-maker has been dropped with no further action being taken, the Paris prosecution authorities said on Monday February 25th. “The numerous enquiries carried out by [detectives] in the context of these proceedings have not enabled all the constituent elements of the reported offence to be established,” the authorities said in a statement.
