Ghislaine Maxwell’s deposition about her life with Jeffrey Epstein to be released by 9am Thursday

ghislaine maxwells deposition about her life with jeffrey epstein to be released by 9am thursday

A deposition which Ghislaine Maxwell gave in 2016 related to her dealings with the late financier Jeffrey Epstein is set to be made public on Thursday, despite her legal efforts to keep under wraps.

Maxwell, 58, has pleaded not guilty to helping Epstein recruit and groom underage girls as young as 14 to engage in illegal sexual acts in the mid-1990s, and not guilty to perjury for having denied involvement in any such scheme when she gave her deposition under oath.

The April 2016 deposition came from a now-settled civil defamation lawsuit against Maxwell by Virginia Giuffre, who has said Epstein kept her as a ‘sex slave’ with Maxwell’s assistance.

U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska in Manhattan directed that a transcript of Maxwell’s testimony and other documents be released by 9am EDT on Thursday.

Lawyers for Maxwell, Epstein’s former girlfriend and longtime associate, had argued she believed the deposition would remain confidential and that releasing it would violate her constitutional right against self-incrimination.

The lawyers had also argued that making the deposition public could imperil Maxwell’s ability to get a fair trial, because jurors might hold its contents against her.

‘If the unsealing order goes into effect, it will forever let the cat out of the bag,’ and ‘intimate, sensitive, and personal information’ about Maxwell might ‘spread like wildfire across the Internet,’ her lawyers said in August.

A trial is scheduled for July 2021.

Maxwell was arrested on July 2 in Bradford, New Hampshire, where authorities said she was hiding on a property she bought in December in an all-cash transaction with her identity shielded.

She is locked up in a Brooklyn jail after the judge in her criminal case called her an unacceptable flight risk.

Maxwell’s deposition and other documents were cleared for release after the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan on Monday rejected her ‘meritless’ arguments that her interests outweighed the presumption the public should see the materials.

Giuffre, who has been one of Epstein’s most visible accusers, and the Miami Herald newspaper, which investigated Epstein’s conduct and successful bid in 2007 to avoid federal sex trafficking charges, had sought the unsealing.

Epstein killed himself at age 66 in August 2019 at a Manhattan jail while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges announced the previous month.

He had previously escaped federal prosecution by pleading guilty in 2008 to Florida state prostitution charges, an agreement now widely considered too lenient.

Epstein once counted U.S. President Donald Trump, former U.S. President Bill Clinton and Britain’s Prince Andrew as friends. They have not been accused of criminal wrongdoing.

Giuffre has said she was trafficked by Epstein and forced to have sex with his friends, including the British prince when she was 17 years old.

In an interview broadcast in Dec. 2019, Giuffre told BBC Panorama she had been brought to London in 2001 by Epstein and taken to meet the prince, one of three occasions when she claimed to have sex with Andrew.

Andrew has denied the allegations.

The ruthless robbers ignore Pacheco’s pleas, and began shooting into the bedroom, with bullets hitting a bedhead, closet door and TV screen. 

‘They shot at me about seven times, six, seven times,’ the model stated.  

Thankfully, her seven-year-old son was not struck in the crossfire.  

‘They could’ve killed me, and they could’ve killed my son. They were shooting right over his head. They didn’t care,’ Pacheco told Inside Edition on Wednesday. 

The men managed to grab expensive jewelry and watches from the home, before they fled the scene amid a hail of bullets.

dutch king willem alexander makes a public apology for holiday during lockdown

The king of the Netherlands has apologised for going on holiday to Greece during a partial lockdown in the country. 

King Willem-Alexander said Wednesday the Dutch royal family regretted going on holiday despite a partial coronavirus lockdown in the Netherlands, admitting ‘it hurts to have betrayed’ people’s trust.

The Dutch king and queen cut short a holiday to their private villa on the Peloponnese peninsular of Greece on Saturday, a day after departing from Amsterdam on a government jet.

Dutch King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima recorded a personal video message on Wednesday in which the king discusses the cancellation of their holiday to Greece

In a video statement alongside his wife, Queen Maxima, broadcast on Wednesday, King Willem-Alexander confessed that it was ‘very unwise’ to ‘disregard the impact of the new restrictions on our society.’ 

‘Our journey to Greece has provoked strong reactions from many Dutch people. It hurts to have betrayed your trust in us,’ the king said. 

‘Our own decision to return was made with the realisation that we should not have gone.

‘From the start of the coronavirus, we have done our best. It is a difficult time for everyone. 

‘We are part of this. But we are not infallible.’   

The king, queen and their youngest daughter Ariane returned on Saturday, while their two eldest daughters, Alexia and future-queen-to-be Amalia came back on Tuesday, according to the NOS public broadcaster. 

The trip came while people were being urged to stay at home due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The royal couple said in a statement that they saw the reactions of people, ‘which are intense, and they touch us.’ 

The pair faced a storm of indignation after the royals’ travel plans leaked out amidst new anti-coronavirus rules and the government urging people to limit international travel. 

The couple left as the Dutch government introduced new lockdown measures which included discouraging unnecessary travel, but they did not break any rules.

They said: ‘Let there be no doubt: To beat the COVID-19 virus it is necessary to follow the rules. The discussion caused by our vacation does not contribute to that.’

The Dutch government last week ordered the closure of all bars, restaurants and cannabis ‘coffee shops’ for around four weeks under what Prime Minister Mark Rutte called a ‘partial lockdown’ to curb a surge in Covid-19 infections.

The Netherlands recorded 8,764 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday, a new daily record, as the country struggles to get to grips with one of Europe’s highest rates of new infections.

Rutte too admitted Sunday that he made a ‘wrong assessment’ by failing to stop the royals from flying to Greece. 

In a letter to parliament, he said he ‘realised too late’ that the holiday ‘could no longer be reconciled with the increasing infections and the stricter measures’.

‘Even though the journey was in line with the regulations, it was very unwise not to take into account the impact of the new restrictions on our community,’ Willem-Alexander said. 

Although still well-loved by the Dutch, the royal holiday row comes at a time when Willem-Alexander faces growing criticism for being out of touch, with the Rutte government recently ordering a review of the annual royal budget.

It also added pressure on Rutte over his response to the pandemic, with elections due in March.

It marks the second time during the pandemic that King Willem-Alexander has been forced to make an apology. 

Queen Maxima and King Willem-Alexander responded to a backlash after being pictured ingnoring social distancing guidelines during their summer holiday in Greece in August. 

The Dutch couple who visited the Greek island of Milos with their daughters Princess Amalia, 16,  Princess Alexia, 15, and Princess Ariane, 13, were criticised for not practising guidelines to prevent the spread of coronavirus during their holiday.

A photo uploaded on social media shows Queen Maxima and King Willem-Alexander posing alongside an unidentified restaurant employee, less than one metre apart.  

They took to Twitter at the time to apologise for not practicing the 1.5 metres apart guideline imposed by The Netherlands, in addition to not wearing face masks.
