Epstein, Maxwell and the Met: nothing to see here?
Ghislaine Maxwell will go on trial later this year accused of helping convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein recruit, groom and sexually abuse girls under the age of 18.
Ms Maxwell has denied all of the charges.
Yet the question is why is this taking place in the United States given that one of the victims in Maxwell’s case claims the alleged abuse happened in London?
A new Channel 4 News investigation has more than half a dozen claims that young women and girls are alleged to have been targeted, trafficked, groomed, or abused in the UK by Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, over a period spanning more than a decade.
And the Met Police was contacted - but decided to do nothing.
