GHISLAINE Maxwell, the alleged ‘pimp’ of Jeffrey Epstein sobbed and said “how could this happen?” after being arrested, according to one of the victims.
Virginia Roberts Giuffre, a survivor of Epstein’s sex trafficking ring, said that during Maxwell’s court hearing, she heard a “very loud British woman screaming ‘why is this happening and how could this happen?'”
The victim, who has also claims that she was trafficked to Prince Andrew, said that Maxwell was sobbing during the hearing.
Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested by the FBI on Thursday after evading the authorities for a year since the death of Jeffrey Epstein in custody.
She has been charged with multiple child sex abuse offences, relating to the Epstein sex ring, as well as perjury for lying about it under oath.
For Virginia, hearing news of Maxwell’s arrest was a feeling of pure elation.
She said: “This day to me has been like the one of the best days of my life.
“I have not stopped smiling and crying, happy tears and I’m just elated to know she is where she belongs.
“She ruined so many lives. She belongs in jail. You want to hurt kids? That’s where you go.”
Of all Epstein’s victims, it’s the allegations of Virginia Roberts Giuffre that has had the most fallout around the world.
She claims Epstein trafficked her to Prince Andrew three times, the first in London when she was 17, then once in New York, and the third and final time to the Virgin Islands.
Virginia now says that Prince Andrew “should be panicking” because “Ghislaine doesn’t really care about anyone else but Ghislaine.”
Prince Andrew denies Virginia’s allegations and any involvement in Jeffrey Epstein’s sex-trafficking ring.
But with Ghislaine Maxwell’s arrest, there is added pressure on investigators to question the Duke of York, who the FBI say has so-far not co-operated with requests to participate in an interview.
Last month, Prince Andrew’s legal team released a statement claiming he was co-operating with the FBI.
In turn, the US Department of Justice released its own statement denying Prince Andrew was telling the truth.
Prince Andrew’s cousin has also branded Ghislaine Maxwell “truly evil” and also claimed she offered $1million to “smoke her out.”
Christina Oxenberg, 56, who is the daughter of a Serbian princess and the Duke of York’s second cousin, was friends with Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged pimp in the 1990s.
Virginia has said that she hopes Ghislaine is honest with investigators – including providing any information she knows about other co-conspirators.
She said: “I really hope she comes forward and says (these people) were involved. This is how it ran.
“Just to help us victims get some accountability, you know.”
Jeffrey Epstein may be dead and Ghislaine Maxwell is potentially facing more than 30 years in jail, but Virginia Roberts Giuffre believes it’s still just the beginning of uncovering the truth of this wicked saga.
“There were so many women in Epstein’s organisation that participated, who procured and who benefited from his sickness,” she continued.
“I think Jeffrey was dirty, was sick. He was a paedophile. Ghislaine, she is the wicked one, and these women with her, they deserve the same punishment.
“They should be taken down as well.”
