In 2024, 177 individuals will receive an unwelcome New Year’s present, when they are publicly identified as “high-profile associates” with accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein. Loretta Preska, United States District Judge for the Southern District of New York ordered on Monday that a “vast” number of documents be unsealed within 14 days. This would mean they will be released around January 2nd.
In the first few days of 2024, court documents will reveal the names of dozens of Jeffrey Epstein’s most prominent associates.
A judge ordered that the pedophile’s powerful friends be revealed in 14 days as part of an extensive unsealing.
The files are likely to be released the next day, as January 1 is a public holiday.
The identification of 177 individuals across hundreds of documents will shed light on the late financier’s sex-trafficking network and its operation.
Virginia Roberts brought a defamation suit against Epstein’s factotum and partner, Ghisleaine Maxiwell, in which she is now presiding. The case has been settled but Roberts wants the court documents made public. These documents include the names and addresses of 177 people.
Judge Loretta Preska has written ‘unsealed fully’ next to 177 names. These are Epstein’s recruiters, friends, and victims.
The material is part of a defamation suit brought in New York by Prince Andrew’s accuser Virginia Roberts against Epstein madam Ghislaine Maxwell.
To say that the names on this list could be intriguing is an understatement. The list likely contains names of employees and managers at Jeffrey Epstein’s private “Pedo Island,” as well as underage victims and guests of Epstein’s notorious island estate. Other names may also be included, such as those of politicians and royalty.
The inclusion of Johanna Sjoberg in Epstein’s list of Does is alarming to Prince Andrew.
Judge Preska refers to Sjoberg by her real name, Jane Doe 162, citing an article from the Daily Mail about her in 2021.
Only a few excerpts from her depositions were made public and they are damning to the Duke.
Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide while in prison on sex-trafficking charges on the 23rd of July, 2019. The autopsy report stated that Epstein had killed himself “by throwing (himself) violently off the top bunk” after being taken off suicide alert and placed in a housing unit for special housing with a cellmate who was awaiting a trial on four counts of murder.
When the names are released, we will have more to say about this.
