Actor Kevin Spacey promises to emerge in a British court to establish his innocence. Actor Kevin Spacey has promised to appear on his own in a British court and establish his integrity in sexual assault lawsuits. His words are quoted by The Sun.

"I really appreciate the statement from the Crown Prosecution Service in which they reminded the media and the public that I am qualified to a fair trial, that I am not guilty until proven otherwise. Although I am disappointed with their decision to move forward with this case, I will voluntarily come to the UK whenever possible and will defend myself against these allegations, which I am sure will prove my innocence," the artist said.

On May 30, it became known that if Spacey did not come from the United States, then the British authorities would seek his official extradition. In such a case, American police could be sent to find the 62-year-old actor and detain him on behalf of the UK. On May 26, it was reported that British prosecutors charged the actor with harassment against three men. All of the harassment incidents are said to have occurred in London between 2005 and 2013 when Spacey was artistic director of the Old Vic Theatre.

Three years ago, actor Anthony Rapp accused Space of rape. About 20 people later reported the space harassment, including nine colleagues who worked on the House of Cards series. Against the backdrop of high profile actions, the actor's reputation was tarnished: he was removed from the hit series, and the movie "All the Money in the World" was re-shot, with Christopher Plummer as the space character. ۔ Any charges against Space that reached the court did not end in a verdict - some plaintiffs withdrew their claims, and some were withdrawn by the prosecution due to limitations law or lack of evidence.
