Spanish tenor Placido Domingo is in the news again and again for all the wrong reasons.
Prosecutors in Argentina have linked the 81-year old disgraced opera singer to a criminal group in Buenos Aires that was a front for sexual trafficking, including of minors, as well as other crimes.
Domingo’s name has appeared in an investigation of a sect-like group that also had U.S. offices and whose leaders have been charged with numerous crimes, including sexual exploitation.
Domingo has faced accusations of sexual harassment over the past three years, but he has not been formally accused of any wrongdoing in the Argentina probe.
So far, 19 people have been detained in Argentina, and seven more are being sought.
