It is more than 80 documents, hundreds of pages of information that Ghislaine Maxwell previously wanted to keep out of the public eye. The judge responsible, Loretta Preska, has now ordered that the material from an earlier trial may be made public as part of an investigation into the sex offender's confidante.
Files previously encrypted by Ghislaine Maxwell are to be made public
Maxwell's team of lawyers wants to take action against Preska's decision. "We are in a completely different position," said her lawyer, Laura Menninger, "we are certainly very concerned about our client's chance of receiving an impartial and fair trial and impartial and fair jury, given that the media does everything is unsealed, undergo an intensive examination, "she assessed the decision.
Because what the media and the public would learn could undoubtedly shape the opinion of Maxwell. The documents come from a civil lawsuit that ended over three years ago. Hundreds of names should appear in it – names of people with whom Jeffrey Epstein was friends. They also include flight logs and passenger lists from the jet he flew to his Caribbean island. Minutes of conversations between Maxwell and Epstein are also part of the material.
Questions about her sex life
But not only that: Apparently a statement from Maxwell is also included. Her lawyers claim that she was asked "intrusive" questions about her sex life at the time.
She was interviewed for seven hours, the statement apparently spans 418 pages. Her answers were "extremely personal and confidential", according to her legal counsel. Not only for Maxwell could the publication of the documents be spicy. Since names of other participants may also be mentioned, she is probably not the only person who would have preferred to keep the documents under lock and key.
