Germany’s Theater Erfurt has put its General Director Guy Montavon on a temporary leave of absence following accusations of sexual assault and abuse of power.
The decision was made based on a report from a Berlin law firm.
According to reports, it is not yet known who the allegations are specifically directed against.
Montavon and the administrative director Angela Klepp-Pallas will also be put on a leave of absence until the next city council meeting on Feb. 7.
The city of Erfurt announced that the investigation report by the Berlin law firm provides grounds for a more in-depth examination of the incidents listed, which, among other things, affect the theater’s management culture. No further details were given.
