LOS ANGELES/ LONDON-The producers Guild of America banned disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein for life on Monday, vowing that sexual harassment would no longer be tolerated within its ranks.

New accusations of sexual assault have continued to pour in since investigations in the New York Times and New Yorker three weeks ago exposed the tycoon as a relentless, bullying sexual predator.

“In light of Mr Weinstein’s widely reported behavior - with new reports continuing to surface even now - the producers Guild’s national board has voted unanimously to enact a lifetime ban on Mr. Weinstein, permanently barring him from PGA membership,” the guild said in a statement.

“This unprecedented step is a reflection of the seriousness with which the guild regards the numerous reports of Mr. Weinstein’s decades of reprehensible conduct. Sexual harassment can no longer be tolerated in our industry or within the ranks of producers Guild membership.”

The announcement came as accusations of serious sexual assault continued to pile up against Weinstein, whose films have received more than 300 Oscar nominations and 81 statuettes.

Meanwhile, British police are investigating allegations of sexual assault against US film mogul Harvey Weinstein from seven women, the Press Association news agency reported Tuesday.

Scotland Yard confirmed that its “Operation Kaguyak” was investigating 11 separate claims brought by seven women, but it does not identify any person subject to an investigation unless they have been charged.

British media, including PA, reported that the claims related to the disgraced producer. Police said officers from the its Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command were probing 11 claims of sexual assault committed from the early 1980s to 2015.

Nine were alleged to have taken place in London and two outside British jurisdiction, which have both been referred to the relevant police departments.

Accusations of sexual assault have continued to pour in since investigations in The New York Times and The New Yorker three weeks ago exposed a series of accounts of sexual predation by the film tycoon.

More than 50 women including stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Mira Sorvino have accused 65-year-old Weinstein of sexual abuse and harassment, though he has denied forcing himself on anyone.
