The ex-collaborator of Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, is in “danger”, according to his friends.
“I’m absolutely worried for his safety,” said Christopher Mason, a tv host and a journalist, who knows Ghislaine Maxwell since the 1980s.
“I think that [she] is in danger? Yes”, he confided to the New York Post.
The ex-girlfriend of Epstein, has been arrested Thursday in the United States and charged with trafficking of a minor, accused of having recruited young girls who are victims of sexual abuse committed by the financial new york.
The daughter of the ex-magnate, british Robert Maxwell, 58, was arrested Thursday morning in the town of Bradford, New Hampshire, nearly a year after the suicide in prison of the millionaire. His arrest is a rebound dramatically in the scandal that affects the jetset and the british royal family, due to the links between Mr. Epstein and prince Andrew.
She had to be transferred into the wake in a New York prison, pending further hearings.
According to Christopher Mason, the justice would be open to a possibility of cooperation with Ghislaine Maxwell. “Somehow, I can’t imagine that she denounces the prince Andrew, but if she faces a sentence of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole, it could be tempting. She, of all people, knew who was sleeping with whom, and [which girl] was assigned to that,” added long-time friend of Ghislaine Maxwell.
According to another friend of Maxwell, who preferred to testify anonymously, the prince Andrew must be terrified.
“I can’t even tell you how much prince Andrew was involved in everything,” he confided to the New York Post“.

Christopher Mason believes that Ghislaine Maxwell has access to videos, self-incriminating. “I am certain that it has access to the videos”, he assured the “New York Post”. “A lot of people, very powerful are going to be more than worried. I hope it will not end as Epstein. I’m worried for her. I think she is in danger. It is too many influential people for her to talk about it,” said Mr. Mason.
Ghislaine Maxwell will have to face six criminal counts for having “assisted, facilitated and contributed to the assault on minor Jeffrey Epstein”, from 1994 to 1997. Be several years before the incident for which Jeffrey Epstein had been charged in July 2019, which dated from the early 2000s.
She is also accused of having”lied repeatedly” during a witness under oath in a civil court case in 2016.
The indictment cites three alleged victims, identified only by numbers, all minor at the time of the facts: it says that they have been led by Ghislaine Maxwell in the home of the financier in Manhattan, Florida, New Mexico, as well as in the residence of Mrs. Maxwell, London, before being sexually assaulted.
Ghislaine Maxwell “is linked with these girls, asking them questions about their lives”, and “inviting them to the cinema or shopping,” highlighted the chief federal prosecutor in Manhattan Audrey Strauss during a rare press point with the physical presence of journalists.
It “normalisait” the obligation was made to have a sexual relationship with him, undressing in front of them and by participating in massage for sex, she added, praising the “courage” of the women who agreed to testify “decades after” the alleged assaults.
