Judge rules to unseal Ghislaine Maxwell’s “extremely personal” litigation documents

A New York Federal Judge has ruled that 94 pages of documents in civil litigation against Ghislaine Maxwell can be unsealed.

Maxwell stands accused of among other things, child sex trafficking on behalf of her former boyfriend, the now dead billionaire Pedophile Jeffery Epstein.

Lawyers for the British socialite had sought to keep the documents sealed under the auspices that “this series of pleadings concerns [attempts] to compel Ms Maxwell to answer intrusive questions about her sex life” that are “extremely personal, confidential and subject to considerable abuse by the media” the Guardian reported.

Earlier this month Ghislaine appeared at her removal hearing via video conference along with her attorney Mr Vogelman shortly after 3.30 pm in Manhattan where it was heard that she was “an extreme flight risk” and is likely to be denied and bail, meaning she may end up in the same jail where Epstein allegedly killed himself.

It was thought Epstein, as part of a plea, would name names of the powerful elite in politics, Hollywood, business and Royalty who used his services to rape and torture children on his private jet and Caribbean island but he died under mysterious circumstances in his jail cell before this could happen.

Although Epstein’s meticulously kept records of the powerful people who availed of his services all somehow disappeared in the days immediately after his death Ghislaine Maxwell has been described as his “living black book”.

No doubt there are powerful people from Hollywood to Washington DC to Buckingham palace who are very nervous now about what could emerge in any trial of Maxwell and it is hoped that she too does not commit “suicide” before she can reveal her secrets to the world.
