Ghislaine Maxwell, former girlfriend of disgraced billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, has consistently been denied bail by judges as she awaits her trial on charges of procuring underage girls for the late tycoon to sex-traffic and abuse. While repeatedly pronounced a “flight risk”, sources claim there has been another reason why she was not allowed to post bail, reported The Times.
“The system has been keeping her in prison to keep her safe,” said a source cited by the outlet.
The report feeds into the speculations surrounding Epstein’s death behind bars and the information Maxwell might have in her possession implicating powerful people. Jeffrey Epstein, who was charged with running a sex trafficking network of minors in 2019, died in his Manhattan cell on 10 August while awaiting trial, having pleaded not guilty to the charges. He was found dead in his prison cell in New York City with officials declaring that he had committed suicide by hanging.

A second pathologist at the autopsy, present reportedly at the request of Epstein’s brother, Mark, concluded that the tycoon’s neck injuries were more consistent with homicide. However, authorities remained convinced that Epstein took his own life.
“The suspicion is if she’d been allowed out on bail, she’d almost certainly have been murdered,” the source was cited as saying.
According to the report, there is a great deal of fear and paranoia among Maxwell’s friends (as well as former friends of Epstein) regarding any kind of association with the case, with those contacted only agreeing to speak on condition of anonymity. The case has tainted and reflected on a multitude of high-profile personalities, such as Prince Andrew, facing a legal suit from one of Epstein’s alleged victims, Virginia Giuffre. The Prince has vehemently denied her accusations she was forced into sex with the royal by Epstein and Maxwell.
