USA: former New York governor sued for sexual assault

Former New York State Governor, Andrew Cuomo, has been indicted for sexual assault on a former employee and will appear for a first hearing on November 17, a judicial source has learned.

“A criminal complaint against former Governor Andrew Cuomo has been filed in Albany City Court,” a New York State court spokeswoman told AFP, adding that he was about a sexual affair.

Accused for several months by former employees, the 63-year-old governor resigned on August 11, a week after the publication of a damning investigative report listing the cases of eleven women harassed or sexually assaulted.

US President Joe Biden himself called on the politician to step down.
