Martins says he is “delighted” by the findings of an external consultant.

Martins, who denied allegations of sexual misconduct, announced in January that he will retire. He said the scandal had “exacted a painful toll” on him and his family.

He now expresses his hope that the “glorious institutions” can”, refocus, without being distracted.”

The findings were denounced Thursday by two former dancers who come forward with allegations.
