MONTREAL — Gilbert Rozon, the founder of the Just For Laughs comedy festival, is facing allegations of sexual harassment and sexual assault from at least nine women who came forward Thursday.
Montreal police would not confirm various reports that one woman had recently filed a sexual assault complaint against Rozon dating back to 1994 in Paris.
Besides these, he was also a model but eventually left modeling.
And surprisingly, he also co-owns two restaurants in Montreal, Canada namely Garde Manger, and Le Bremner along with Chuck Hughes and Kyle Marshall.
About 30 people specialized in investigating sexual assault will handle the complaints.
Montreal police said they received 43 calls Thursday and another 10 on Friday morning, although Pichet said not all will result in official complaints because some people were only seeking information.
