- The progress will hold the most critical accusations against Ghislaine Maxwell out of the case.
- Virginia Giuffre, alleges that Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell rushed her around the globe when she was 17 and 18 for sexual contact with billionaires, politicians, royals and heads of state.
Prince Andrew’s allegations in Epstein-maxwell’s case:
When Jeffrey Epstein’s longtime friend Ghislaine Maxwell goes on hearing the following week, the prosecutor who delighted the people the most — with allegations she was trafficked to Prince Andrew and other famous men — won’t be section of the trial.
U.S. prosecutors decided not to bring allegations in association with Virginia Giuffre, who states Epstein and Maxwell travelled her around the globe when she was 17 and 18 for sexual contact with billionaires, politicians, royals and heads of state.
She isn’t anticipated to be called a bystander in Maxwell’s case, either.
Prosecutors will concentrate instead on four other women who say they were hired by Maxwell as youngsters to be exploited by Epstein. None has claimed the type of exploitation by strong international people that Giuffre has mentioned in interviews and court filings.
Bypassing Giuffre’s allegations about Andrew will keep the most explosive allegations against Maxwell out of the trial, but it will also allow prosecutors to avoid a big risk.
Reports, eyewitnesses and photos back up various parts of Giuffre’s account of her time with Epstein, the investor who died by self-destruction in 2019 while imprisoned ahead of his sex trafficking case. But Giuffre has admitted getting important features in her story illegal across the years, including originally incorrectly stating in a claim that she had been 15 when Epstein started to hurt her.
The men she’s cited have spent years hitting her honesty. Maxwell’s attorneys might have attempted to have any of them claim.
