Ghislaine Maxwell should not be given bail given she most definitely has the means and motive to flee; the case of Carlos Ghosn is proof that people of her wealth have and will run
Given Carlos Ghosn, the former head of Nissan and Renault, managed to escape in a musical box on a private plane while on bail, it seems ludicrous that a court in America is even considering releasing Ghislaine Maxwell on bail.
Whilst lawyers for Jeffrey Epstein’s madam claims she is at risk of catching coronavirus in the Metropolitan Detention Center, Brooklyn and isn’t a flight risk, prosecutors should take into account that she managed to evade authorities and the media for the last year. It has this morning been revealed that she “kept [her] phone wrapped in tin foil and ran from FBI during [her] arrest.” Here, indeed is a woman who is devious and degenerate and most definitely, as was the case also with her conman father ‘Bouncing Bob,’ not to be trusted.
Whilst Maxwell is offering £4 million ($5 million, €4.4 million or درهم18.4 million) in assets as a bond, prosecutors are right to point out that she is an “extreme risk” because of the possible long prison term she faces, her wealth, her multiple passports and her multiple citizenships. She has, as they rightly point out, “absolutely no reason to stay.” On that basis, this mucky madam should be kept in jail and she must also be kept away from anything that would give her the ability to “do the convenient thing” for the likes of Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump and others and end her life.
