TRANSCRIPTS of a 2016 deposition reveals Ghislaine Maxwell denied knowledge of Jeffrey Epstein’s child abuse, in which she states she never witnessed “inappropriate underage activities” by him.
Ms Maxwell, who is set to go on trial next year accused of helping Epstein traffic and sexually abuse underage girls, has long fought for this deposition to be kept secret with her lawyers believing their release would violate her rights to a fair trial.
It came from a civil defamation lawsuit, which has since been settled, brought by one of Epstein’s accusers, Virginia Giuffre.
In it Ms Maxwell denied hiring anyone under 18-years-old for Epstein: “I never saw any inappropriate underage activities with Jeffrey ever,” she said.
She continued: “All the time that I have been in the house I have never seen, heard, nor witnessed, nor have reported to me that any activities took place, that people were in distress, either reported to me by the staff or anyone else.”
58-year-old Maxell, daughter of the late disgraced UK newspaper tycoon Robert Maxwell, was arrested in July after also being accused of perjury for having denied her involvement of Epstein’s schemes when she gave her deposition under oath.
