GHISLAINE Maxwell’s arrest by the FBI could cause severe headaches for Britain’s Royal Family.
Prince Andrew could face fresh embarrassment and revelations over his friendship with the billionaire paedophile Jeffery Epstein and his associates, it is feared.
Prince Andrew is said to be ‘bewildered’ over the lack of response from the Feds as he and the firm brace for “fresh revelations” after Epstein’s bottom girl ‘pimp’ Maxwell was arrested by the FBI according to the Daily Mail.
Prince Andrew has always denied any wrongdoing, but insiders fear that Gislaine could ‘give up’ sensitive information in an attempt to cut a deal with the feds as she faces up to 30 years in jail for sex trafficking.
Maxwell has the capacity to ‘escape prosecution’ say sources with ‘significant access’ to ‘huge sums’ of cash – straight out of Epstein’s bank account.
Gislaine who was hiding in France to avoid charges before returning to the US earlier this year has three passports and over 15 bank accounts.
Each account contains balances ranging from $100,000s of dollars to over $20 million with feds claiming she “poses an extreme risk of flight”.
The attorney office of the Southern District of New York announced the arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell for her alleged role in the sexual exploitation crimes of her companion financier Jeffrey Epstein in New York City yesterday.
The acting attorney of the district Audrey Strauss confirmed the arrest saying that the case against Maxwell is “the prequel to the early case that we brought against Jeffrey Epstein.”
“Maxwell played a critical role in helping Epstein to identify, befriend and groom minor victims for abuse. In some cases, Maxwell participated in the abuse herself,” Strauss said.
Maxwell was indicted on charges of enticement of minors, sex trafficking and perjury for her role in the abuse. Jeffrey Epstein was arrested in July 2019 on federal charges of sex trafficking.
He died in his jail cell the following month from an alleged suicide. He denied the charges against him.
Strauss also told reporters that they would welcome Prince Andrew to come in and talk to them, adding “we would like to have the benefit of his statement.”
Prince Andrew, the Duke of York and former member of the British royal family, was a close friend of Epstein. He permanently resigned from public roles in the aftermath of the sex scandal being uncovered, but has denied all accusations. Ghislaine Maxwell was indicted on charges of enticement of minors, sex trafficking and perjury for her role in the abuse.
WHO IS MAXWELL?
JEFFERY Epstein’s ‘bottom girl’ Ghislaine Maxwell was hiding out in France before her arrest by the FBI.
Politicalite was the first outlet to report the news about the pimp staying in her family’s former home in France to avoid extradition to the United States in April 2020.
She later moved to Paris and was spotted by The Sun on Avenue Matignon in the days before France went into lockdown in March and that she has remained in Paris during the virus crisis reported Tatler.
French citizen Maxwell chose to hide out in France as the country does not extradite their own citizens to any country. Ghislane was born by her aunt Yvonne in Maisons-Lafitte.
Maxwell had not been seen except for a sighting at an ‘In N Out’ burger joint in LA a week after Epstein ‘killed himself’ in July 2019.
This was the only time in three years the Bonny to his Clyde would be exposed to the public and has not been seen since.
A source exclusively told Politicalite: “Maxwell is hiding out at the former family home in France”
“The chateu was owned by her mother and is the same place that sister Isabel Maxwell and al Seckel fled too.”
Al Seckel was a paranormal and illusions writer who had been in a relationship with Ghislane’s sister Isabel.
He collaborated with Epstein in 2009 organising a science conference called Mindshift on the notorious Little Saint James island owned by Epstein.
In 2011 scientists Murray Gell-Mann, Leonard Mlodinow, Gerard Sussman and Frances Arnold attended. In addition cryptocurrency proponent and actor Brock Pierce.
An interview between Seckel and Epstein appeared on Epstein’s science website on October 17, 2010.
Maxwell has not been seen since Epstein was arrested last summer on serious sex charges.
She became the alleged focus of accusations of colluding in the trafficking of the children to Maxwell and the elite at various locations including Epstein’s island.
Epstein was the primary target, but when he died, the focus shifted to Maxwell.
Multiple Epstein accusers have named her in civil suits for the role they say she played in Epstein’s alleged sex-trafficking operation.
According to news reports, Maxwell’s own lawyers refused to accept service of new lawsuits against her. They were not authorized to do so, they said.
Accusers Annie and Maria Farmer who had no option but to e-mail Maxwell with their lawsuit as she cannot be found, was served by attorney Joshua Schiller on her behalf.
“If she really did nothing wrong, she should have nothing to fear from standing up in court and saying so under oath,” Schiller, a parter at Boies Schiller Flexner stated about Maxwell.
Maria said she met Epstein and Maxwell when she was 25 to help with her painting career. Her sister Annie was 16 and they were the first girls 24 years ago to report the master pedo and his madam to the police and FBI for sexual abuse.
Maria said Maxwell and Epstein started violently groping her and her sister Annie was subjected to a topless massage by Epstein in New Mexico.
But the authorities dismissed the girls abuse with threats that ended Ms Farmer’s career as she ditched painting and New York.
“I did not want another young lady to go through what we went through and justice has never been served in this case.”
In another lawsuit concluded in April, paedophile Jeffrey Epstein gets away with it again, posthumously this time as an appeal in court was lost by the sexually abused victims who wanted federal sex trafficking charges from 2008 overturned.
Courtney Wild and 40 victims who came forward around 2005 in Florida wanted a ‘Mob style’ court ruling quashed where Epstein got a lenient 13 month work release order for two charges of prostitution of a minor and put on the Sex Offenders Register.
Alex Acosta, who was Trump’s ex Secretary of Labour, was the US Attorney for Florida and approved the plea deal at the time.
He also cut the International Labour Affairs Bureau budget for agencies that combat human trafficking,including child sex trafficking, child labour and forced labour internationally from $68 million in 2018 down to $20 million in 2020.
Acosta left his job in 2019 when Epstein was again arrested for new child sex trafficking charges under pressure from politicians, the media and probably his own conscience.
The victims wanted to open the case for the 40 women who had been abused and trafficked to wealthy people at parties, holidays and on Epstein’s Little St James Island where Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew were frequent flyers in 2008.
An appeal has been organised to take place with supporters of the victims pledging justice must be served.
