According to the presenter, in the interview that will be broadcast next Monday, January 23 at 7:00 p.m. (UK time) Maxwell speaks from his Florida prison about pedophile Epstein, his friend Prince Andrew and the late Queen Elizabeth.
Maxwell, the daughter of the British newspaper magnate Robert Maxwellis serving a 20-year sentence for procuring girls for his late lover and sex offender Jeffrey Epsteinwho was found dead in his prison cell in 2019. The sentence was the punctuation mark in a trial that explored the sordid rituals of a predatory power couple who courted the rich and famous while luring vulnerable girls as young as 14. and then they exploited them.
The interview will be broadcast in a special program –Ghislaine Behind Bars” (Ghislaine, behind bars)– in Talk TVRupert Murdoch’s channel.
“Maxwell vents all about Epstein, Prince Andrew and even our late queen. This is Ghislaine Maxwell behind bars and in her own words,” Kyle teased.
last weekend, The Daily Mail revealed that Maxwell, who was a friend of Prince Andrew, had met the late Queen isabel II.
From prison in Florida, Maxwell declared: “I believe that the Queen is one of the most exceptional women that I have had the honor and privilege to know.”
And he stated that spend time with the British monarch and talk about her shared love for horses it was one of the greatest honors of his life.
I thought the Queen was one of the most exceptional women that I have had the honor and privilege of knowing”, he assured.
He claimed the late monarch had a “brightness” and said he was “deeply saddened” when he heard the news of her death.
It is known that Maxwell was invited by Andrés to the Buckingham Palace on several occasions, and also participated in a more intimate meeting in balmoral in the summer of 1999, when the Queen is believed to have been in residence. On that visit, Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein were photographed relaxing in the queen’s cabin
The following year, in June 2000, they had fun at the birthday party. Andrew’s 40th birthday in it Windsor Castle, organized by Elizabeth II. In addition, in December of the same year, the prince invited them to sandringhamwhere the monarchs spend their Christmas holidays.
20 years in prison
The US Justice came to the conclusion that Epstein sexually abused girls hundreds of times over more than a decade, but he couldn’t have done it without Maxwell’s help. his longtime partner and ex-girlfriend, who also participated in the abuse on a few occasions. The jury sentenced Maxwell to 20 years in prison for sex trafficking, transporting a minor to engage in illegal sexual acts, and two counts of conspiracy.
“They were partners in crime together and they abused these children together,” the ruling states, calling Maxwell “a person who was indifferent to the suffering of other human beings.”
The daughter of the British newspaper magnate Robert Maxwellwho also has American and French nationality, did not react when Judge Alison Nathan announced the sentence in the court for the southern district of Manhattan, which had generated enormous expectations.
The judge described Maxwell’s crimes as “abominable and predatory” and made it clear that although “Epstein was central to this criminal scheme, Maxwell is not being punished in his place or on his behalf, but rather for his conduct.”
The financial billionaire committed suicide in jail in August 2019 while awaiting trial for these crimes. According to the prosecution, for a decade, Maxwell assisted, facilitated, and participated in the child abuse by Jeffrey Epstein, helping him recruit, attract and abuse young people he knew to be under 18 years of age.
The sentence was more lenient than the 30 to 55 years in prison that the New York prosecutor requested, but a little more than what the scale establishes for each of the five crimes of which she was found guilty by a jury on December 29. , which would add up to between 15.6 and 19.5 years.
Nathan justified the sentence in “the seriousness of the facts” despite acknowledging the mitigating factors such as the defendant’s apologies to the victims, that the events occurred between 1994 and 2004, that he has not had any problems with the law either before or in the last almost 20 years, in addition to his good behavior in prison, where she has been held since her arrest in the summer of 2020.
For prosecutor Damian Williams, the sentence “sent a strong message that no one is above the law and that it is never too late to do justice.”
After the prosecution had criticized his “total lack of remorse” and the testimonies of several victims who, with broken voices, recounted the ordeal that the Epstein-Maxwell couple made them live and with which they continue to deal almost three decades later, the Socialite recognized “the terrible damage he did to too many women.”
“It’s hard to hear and even harder to take,” he said before adding: “I deeply sympathize with all the victims in this case” and “I feel the pain they are experiencing.”
Two of Epstein’s victims, identified as “Jane” and “Carolyn,” testified at trial that they had 14 years when Maxwell began luring them into victims of the financier.
“I think Jeffrey Epstein was a manipulative, cunning and controlling man who had a deeply compartmentalized life and misled everyone in his orbit,” Maxwell said.
Maxwell and Epstein were a couple in the early 1990s. before becoming professional collaborators and accomplices for nearly 30 years.
In the trial against the British woman, a witness declared that she was “the lady of the house”.
The relationship was difficult to define: “She was part girlfriend, part employee, sort of general manager and best friend. She was the one who fixed the problems and made things easier.”
The witness explained that she organized the house and the staff. She gave each new employee a 58-page manual with instructions on how they should behave (they could not address Epstein or look him in the eye) and made them sign a confidentiality agreement. She was the one who gave the orders and handled the day-to-day finances.
Thus, she went from being Epstein’s girlfriend to his madam.
He procured teenage girls for his three daily sexual massages, dissuaded them, threatened them, persuaded them to go on a trip with the financier and his powerful friends, did what was necessary to recruit replacements, and even participated in several of the sessions.
“For me and for many others, You opened the door to hell for us.”, Virginia Giuffre, one of the couple’s victims, told Maxwell -although he did not appear in the case-, in a statement read by his lawyer at the hearing.
In one of the many ramifications of this case, Giuffre sued the Prince Andrew of England for sexual abuse when he was a minor. Last February they reached an out-of-court economic agreement for which the son of the Queen of England would have paid, according to the press, 13 million dollars, thus avoiding an embarrassing process for the British royal family.
