Ghislaine Maxwell did not introduce Epstein to Prince Andrew: friend

Ghislaine Maxwell did not introduce Epstein to Prince Andrew: friend

The British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell is due in court in NY tomorrow, where she faces charges of luring and grooming underage girls for her former boyfriend Jeffrey Epstein.

He also said he invited Maxwell to daughter Princess Beatrice's 18th birthday party, with Epstein also attending. She also said she would surrender her passports and limit travel to the Southern and Eastern Districts of NY.

Maxwell was arrested on July 2 in Bradford, New Hampshire, where authorities said she had been hiding out at a 156-acre property she bought last December while shielding her identity.

The details were cited in court documents during arguments against Maxwell's request for a $5 million bond while she awaits her trial.

Former Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean endorsed speculation on Saturday that convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein didn't kill himself, and soon Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein's longtime associate, won't have either.

Andrew, who is accused by one of Epstein's victims of having sex with her when she was trafficked and underage, also denies allegations against him. "But even so, at the time I don't think I... certainly I wasn't aware when the invitation was issued what was going on in the United States and I wasn't aware until the media picked up on it because he never said anything about it".

On whether Maxwell has evidence on the duke, he said: "It is possible".

"This cartoon caricature of a villain she is being painted as is utterly untrue and false".

"As these facts make plain, there should be no question that the defendant is skilled at living in hiding", the court filing says.

"Ghislaine is no Cruella de Vil", the friend told the tabloid.

The piece appears intent on assassinating Goldman's character, explaining how she is a convicted stalker and harasser of her former lover, and had even attempted to extort $10 million from the man. Maxwell is also accused of taking part in some of the sexual abuse. A hearing is scheduled Tuesday where a judge will decide whether to release her from federal custody.

The defense is proposing terms of release including a $5 million bond co-signed by "six financially responsible people" and secured "by real property in the United Kingdom" worth more than $3.75 million; the surrender of all of Maxwell's travel documents; and home confinement in the Southern District of NY with Global Positioning System monitoring, among other conditions, legal filings show.

The friends claim Ghislaine Maxwell's romantic relationship with Jeffrey Epstein ended in 2001. They cited her wealth, lack of meaningful ties to the NY area and her French citizenship.

Epstein died last August in a NY jail, in what is believed to be a suicide, after being indicted on similar charges.

She is also a friend of the Duke of York's, who is caught in his own war of words with prosecutors in the USA who are investigating the crimes of Epstein. "For years before her arrest in this case, the defendant likely believed she had gotten away with her crimes".

She is being held in the high-security Metropolitan Detention Centre in Brooklyn.
