Accused of sexual assault, the singer of the group Rammstein denies and promises legal proceedings


Highlights: Several women have accused the group of drugging and sexually assaulting them. The group's lawyers say they will take legal action against the women. The women claim they were drugged before being invited backstage for parties. The band denies the allegations, saying the women were not drugged, but simply sexually assaulted by the group's members. The case is being investigated by the European Court of Human Rights, which will decide if the allegations are true or not, the lawyers say. They also say that the women have not been charged with any crime.

Accusations "invariably false". The singer of the German metal band Rammstein, Till Lindemann, accused by several women of sexual assault after concerts, strongly denies, say Thursday his lawyers in a statement.

"On social media, especially Instagram, Twitter and YouTube, serious accusations were made by various women against our client," Berlin lawyers Simon Bergmann and Christian Schertz write. "It has been repeatedly claimed that women have been drugged with GHB or alcohol at Rammstein concerts, in order to allow our client to engage in sexual acts on them," they add.

"These accusations are invariably false," the lawyers say. "We will immediately take legal action for all such allegations," they threaten.

The same scenario describes not several women

The case began in late May with the testimony of a 24-year-old Irish woman accusing the singer and lyricist of the group of drugging and sexually assaulting her after a concert the same month in Lithuania. This testimony freed the words of other young women all describing more or less the same scenario.

The groupies would have been spotted in the front rows of concerts, filmed or photographed so that Lindemann could make his choice, before for some to be invited backstage for parties. Some would then have been drugged before suffering the assaults of the singer, aged 60.

Several concert venues, in Munich and Berlin in particular, where the German group is to perform, in the middle of a European tour, have given up installing just in front of the stage the area ("Row Zero") in which the singer would have spotted the young women.
