The news comes three years after Placido faced accusations of sexual harassment from numerous women. The investigators of the case highlighted that the 81-year-old tenor appears to be involved in a sex trafficking network, in which hundreds of women are involved, reduced to slavery to satisfy the demands of wealthy clients. However, no formal charges have been filed so far.
