NEW YORK (AP) - The Latest on Time's Up calling for a probe into the Manhattan District Attorney's office.

The Manhattan district attorney's office says a review of how prosecutors handled a 2015 sex abuse case against Harvey Weinstein will show the investigation was handled properly.

New York's governor on Monday directed the state's attorney general to review a decision not to prosecute the disgraced media mogul after an Italian model told police that he groped her.

The woman caught Weinstein apologizing on tape during a sting operation, but the DA's office declined to prosecute the case.

Spokesman Danny Frost says the DA's office will provide the attorney general with any information necessary.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo made the directive on Monday, hours after Time's Up, an initiative started by Hollywood industry women, asked for the review.

In a statement, the Democratic governor asked that the review be conducted "in a way that does not interfere with the current investigation."
