With our correspondent in London , Marina Daras
Since the indictment of Jeffrey Epstein in early July, the names of several personalities have emerged in court documents.
If none of them had been charged, they may now find themselves at the center of the investigation that the Manhattan federal prosecutor has promised not to abandon. This is the case of two particularly influential British, Ghislaine Maxwell and Prince Andrew of England.
Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of British media magnate Robert Maxwell, is the former companion of Epstein. She is accused of actively recruiting teenage girls who later became financial sex slaves.
Now on the run, she was the one who introduced Jeffrey Epstein to Prince Andrew. The 59-year-old second son of the Queen of England is also accused of involvement in the sexual abuse organized by her billionaire friend.
Epstein allegedly forced one of his victims to have sex with Andrew three times, which was repeatedly denied by Buckingham Palace.
