According to reports in the US media, the latest publicized files on the case revealed many photos taken in 2006, including young girls on the island belonging to Epstein, as well as Epstein's ex-girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell, who denied being on the island at the time.
The photos were disclosed through the case against Sarah Ransome, one of Epstein's victims, who revealed the inner workings of the prostitution network.
Lawyers for Virginia Giuffre, the main plaintiff against Epstein, said Maxwell had "conclusively" proved he was on the island at the time.
According to the filings, Ransome claimed that all the girls taken to Epstein's island of Little St. James were given Victoria's Secret bikinis and nightgowns.
Ransome claimed that Epstein made videos of former US President Bill Clinton, British businessman Richard Branson and Prince Andrew having sexual intercourse with Ransome's friend.
The files include Ransome's accusations against Clinton and Branson, as well as statements accusing former US President Donald Trump.
In one of Ransome's posts, whose emails were analyzed as part of the case, he wrote that "a friend of his was one of the girls who had a relationship with Trump", while Ransome stated that another friend had a relationship with Clinton.
Steven Cheung, a spokesman for Trump, said the "false accusations are false and have been withdrawn."
Lawyers for Alan Dershowitz, who is scheduled to defend Israel at the International Court of Justice, said the emails were "important as an antidote to Ransome's erroneous statements."
A spokesperson for Virgin Group, the company Branson founded, said Ransome's statements were "baseless and unfounded," pointing to a 2019 interview in which Ransome said he "made up the tapes."
In a statement to the press, Ransome said he wanted to retract the statements "to distance himself from this incident".
Jeffrey Epstein affair
Jeffrey Epstein, accused of sexually abusing dozens of girls under the age of 18, the youngest of whom was 14, and of creating a prostitution network, was found dead on August 10, 2019 in his cell at New York's Manhattan Metropolitan Central Prison.
Epstein's girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, was found guilty in her trial for allegedly assisting Epstein's illegal activities in the organization of luring underage girls into prostitution for some rich people, celebrities and government officials.
On the other hand, Virginia Giuffre, one of Epstein's victims, filed a lawsuit in New York in 2021, claiming that Prince Andrew molested her in New York and London when she was 17. Giuffre claimed that the Prince sexually harassed her without her consent, even though he knew she was a minor.
