Give Har­vey a break

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Vivek Shah, ar­rested for ex­tor­tion last week, may well have lacked moral strength, but you would have trou­ble ar­gu­ing that he was any sort of coward. Shah, an ac­tor, was in­dicted for threat­en­ing none other than the fear­some movie im­pre­sario Har­vey Weinstein. The de­fen­dant is al­leged to have threat­ened to kill fam­ily mem­bers if sev­eral mil­lion dol­lars were not wired to an off­shore bank ac­count. It does sound like a try­ing time to be Har­vey. Only a few days pre­vi­ously he was granted a re­strain­ing or­der against a man who was threat­en­ing to shoot him. Give the not-so-poor old geezer a break. He hasn’t had a proper hit in years.
