LATEST: ANAND JON's sister has hit back at the 59 sexual assault charges the fashion designer has been indicted on - claiming the women are liars. The stylist to the stars is currently being held in Los Angeles county jail, awaiting trial on charges ranging from rape, sexual battery, committing lewd acts with a minor, forcible sodomy and witness intimidation. Sanjana Jon claims many of the women continued to work with her brother, after they alleged he attacked them. She says, "We are just confused. Why would you keep following the person around if you are being violated by him?" But attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing one of the accusers insists: "That's an old script and I'm sure in the case of many women it's not justified."
The '12 Years A Slave' director will receive the accolade at the London Film Festival in October.
