The list includes former American president Bill Clinton, British Prince Andrew and Michael Jackson. Last month, a judge decided that the list should be made public.
The release of the list sheds new light on the matter. The new names provide insight into the extent of the abuse and new cases may be opened. More documents containing information about Epstein are expected to be released in the near future.
This concerns the names of victims, employees and suspected accomplices. Some names already became known during the trial of Epstein’s ex-partner Ghislaine Maxwell. The document contains her testimony as well as that of alleged victims such as Virginia Roberts Giuffre and Johanna Sjoberg.
The people on the list are not necessarily suspicious or ever have been. So according to The Guardian also mentioned names of journalists who worked on the case. Names of victims and alleged victims are painted black.
Clinton and Prince Andrew have been accused before
Clinton previously admitted that he flew on Epstein’s private plane a number of times and that he met the businessman. But he has always denied knowing anything about the Epstein’s actions. The documents show that Epstein once insinuated to one of the plaintiffs that “Clinton liked young girls.” The former president is not suspected of illegal activities.
Giuffre accused Prince Andrew of having sex with her when she was seventeen years old. Maxwell and Epstein allegedly forced her to do so. The papers also contain allegations from another woman, who claims that the prince groped her. Andrew lost his titles in 2022 as a result of the lawsuit.
Other well-known names include the famous American illusionist David Copperfield and Alan Dershowitz, professor of law at the prestigious Harvard University.
Epstein was suspected of sexually abusing numerous young women
Epstein took his own life in 2019 while awaiting trial for sexual abuse. He was accused of widely abusing young girls and women. Some victims were as young as fourteen years old. He also took the girls to his island of Little Saint James in the Caribbean.
Maxwell helped enable that abuse, including by recruiting girls. In 2021, she was sentenced to twenty years in prison.
More than 125 women have now received compensation from Epstein’s estate.
