Should celebrities be involved in world affairs

Epstein confidante Maxwell now also charged with forced prostitution

The indictment against Ghislaine Maxwell, the former partner of businessman Jeffrey Epstein, has been expanded in Manhattan Court. Among other things, she is now also accused of forced prostitution of minors. In addition, there is a new plaintiff in the documents, who is listed as "minor victim 4" and extends the period in which the offenses are said to have occurred by seven years. Previously, it was about cases of abuse from 1994 to 1997, now they go back to 2004.

The new allegations of forced prostitution also concern "underage victim 4". The person is said to have "been recruited to give Epstein sexualized massages," for which he or Maxwell paid. The plaintiff first met the couple in 2001 at the Epstein estate in Florida. She was then 14 years old. Epstein and Maxwell are said to have offered the girl to accompany the two on trips. They had taken care of a passport, but the minor refused.

The puff mother

Maxwell has protested her innocence since her arrest by the FBI last summer. She is in the Brooklyn jail. Her lawyers did not respond to the new allegations.

Other victims of the sexual assault described it as Maxwell's role in the criminal system that she controlled the girls and acted like a puff mother for sex workers. She knew what Epstein liked.

Celebrities involved

Convicted sex offender Epstein was found hanged in his cell in New York in August 2019.

Also involved in the Epstein case were celebrities such as Prince Andrew, the son of the British Queen. He, too, is said to have received minors from Maxwell and Epstein. To this day, he has evaded a statement to the US investigators, but publicly protests his innocence. (bbl, March 30, 2021)
