Jeffrey Epstein accuser links powerful men to financier -civil court filing

Jeffrey Epstein accuser links powerful men to financier -civil court filing”

Thousands of court documents related to the Jeffrey Epstein sex abuse case have been unsealed, providing new details into the financier's connections to current and former USA presidents, and his interest in sex trafficking.

Epstein's lawyers did not immediately respond to emails seeking comment Friday.

Dershowitz, who was part of the legal team that negotiated a controversial 2007 deal that allowed Epstein to avoid federal prosecution for sex trafficking in Florida and instead plead guilty to lesser state charges, has denied her claims and accused her of fabricating the allegations against him. He was treated at a nearby hospital, reports say, before being returned to his cell at New York's Metropolitan Correctional Center. Ms Maxwell has not been criminally charged.

Giuffre filed a defamation lawsuit against Maxwell in 2015 in Manhattan Federal Court.

In 2015 Ms Giuffre claimed that Prince Andrew slept with her in NY and London when she was aged 17, which he strongly denies.

Giuffre said that she was told by Maxwell that she would be trained at Epstein's residence as a masseuse, but that "on the very first meeting that I had with him. she instructed me to take off my clothes and to give oral sex to Jeffrey Epstein".

None of the four men has been criminally charged in connection with Mr Epstein. "Any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue", a spokesperson for Buckingham Palace said Friday.

On Friday, representatives of both Richardson and Mitchell denied her allegations, saying the men never had any contact with Giuffre. Giuffre said she was made to watch as Epstein and Maxwell indulged in "illegal sexual acts with dozens of underage girls".

In a statement to CNN last month, the spokesperson said, "The Duke of York accepts it was unwise to have met Mr Epstein in December 2010".

A spokeswoman for Mr Dubin said he was "outraged" by the unsealed allegations, which he considered "demonstrably false and defamatory", and said that he had flight records and other evidence that "definitively" disproved them.

Epstein was asked in the videotaped deposition whether it was standard operating procedure for his former girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, to bring underage girls to him to sexually abuse.

The charges in the July indictment of Epstein share similarities with Giuffre's account, but it's not clear whether she is among any of the unnamed victims in that indictment.

The White House did not respond to a request for comment.

Giuffre said that Epstein flew her around the world and introduced her to an array of political and entertainment figures.

The documents also include images of telephone messages from Epstein assistants summarising calls from people procuring girls.
