Attorneys for Ghislaine Maxwell discovered “critical new information” last week that will impact both her criminal and civil cases in Manhattan federal court, according to court documents filed Monday.
Virginia Roberts Giuffre claimed Ghislaine Maxwell sexually abused underage girls as young as 15 years old, according to 600 pages of documents newly unsealed Thursday night. Giuffre, who previously said she was recruited into Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking ring by Maxwell as a teenager, also alleged Maxwell and Epstein pressured her into being sexually abused by numerous powerful men, including Prince Andrew, defense attorney Alan Dershowitz, and U.S. politicians, among others. Both the prince and Dershowitz have denied these accusations.
The administrator of a fund for victims of sexual abuse by disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, which opened for claims Thursday, said that more than 100 victims or their attorneys have already been in touch and that many more will likely file claims soon.
It’s official – anonymous is back.
Once a feared collective of hacktivists, Anonymous had largely remained silent in recent years. Since May 31st, Sunday, they claim to have suddenly become more expressive.
For decades, wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein engaged in sexual abuse and sex trafficking that led to his eventual arrest on July 19. As the investigating into Epstein — and his subsequent death — unfolded, his name became synonymous with the horrific crimes he committed. Many of Epstein’s victims never got justice for his actions, but they continue to speak out against Epstein’s abuse — perhaps now more than ever. In a new Netflix true crime docuseries, Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, the former financier and convicted sex offender will be given a new kind of public trial as many are coming forward to detail his crimes. In a four-part show released on May 27, Filthy Rich will explore — among many things — the history of Epstein’s sexual abuse.
