Read here Jeffrey Epstein and his mother would have said Ghislaine Maxwell was innocent if they were still alive, Maxwell’s lawyers said in a court filing.
Maxwell, 59, was arrested in New Hampshire last summer before being charged for conspiring to ‘entice’ and ‘transport’ minors between 1994 and 1997.ADVERTISEMENT
In a court filing that argued the US government waiting too long to bring charges, her lawyers said the government turned to Maxwell after Epstein’s death because they were ‘left with no fish to attempt to fry’, reported The Times.
Former fashion mogul Peter Nygard was denied bail by a judge Friday morning in Winnipeg following more than two days of hearings and now faces possible extradition to the United States to face multiple charges of sexual assault.
Justice Shawn Greenberg said she was not satisfied that the bail plan laid out by Nygard’s defence lawyers would ensure the former fashion mogul would not contact witnesses or have others contact them.
Nygard, 79, has been in custody since he was arrested at a Winnipeg house on Dec. 14. He is accused of sexually assaulting dozens of women and girls over a 25-year period and faces possible extradition to the U.S. on those allegations.
“Although I sincerely regret having to take this action, I have concluded that it is necessary to protect the interests of eligible claimants who have not yet resolved their claims through the Program,” said Jordy Feldman, the administrator of the Epstein Victims’ Compensation Fund, in a statement on Thursday.
“Issuing a compensation offer that cannot be timely and fully funded and paid, consistent with the way the Program has operated to date, would compromise claimants’ interests and the guiding principles of the Program,” Feldman added.
