"This happened three years ago and he was cleared," lawyer Jean Veil told Europe 1 radio on Monday."He is outraged by these false accusations. Not only did he never stay at a hotel in New York, he was never in his room while the maid was there, he certainly wasn't naked in front of her, and when she gave him a blow job, it was entirely consensual, and she enjoyed having her arms twisted behind her back, which also never happened."

Libel laws work differently elsewhere. Good luck if you happen to offend a Brit, they'll sue you clear across the internet.

Basically, in the UK if a newspaper prints something which you can prove is not true, you can sue them for it and get satisfaction.

As opposed to here, where you're lucky if you get a retraction printed in tiny type on page E37.

Actually, in the US, the truth is an absolute defense against libel.  But in the UK, you can still be sued for libel even if what you've said about the person is true.
