A US judge has unsealed a huge tranche of documents related to an old lawsuit filed by one of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged victims.
The late financier was a convicted sex offender, who was accused of abusing a string of underage girls.
He committed suicide in 2019 before going to trial after being detained on suspicion of sex trafficking.
His associate, Ghislaine Maxwell, an Oxford-educated heiress, is serving 20 years in prison for helping him target and sexually abuse vulnerable young girls and women.
The documents unsealed Thursday were part of a lawsuit filed against Maxwell in 2015 by one of Epstein’s alleged victims, Virginia Giuffre.
There was much anticipation for the hundreds of pages of court documents to be released.
But most of the names mentioned were already publicly linked to Epstein.
During his life, Epstein went to great lengths to be in the orbit of famous people, including politicians, celebrities and academics.
Although many of the well-known men on the list have already acknowledged that they once knew Epstein, they maintain that they were unaware of or uninvolved in his sex trafficking operation.
