Ghislaine Maxwell’s Brother Says ‘It’s Wrong’ While Breaking Down In Tears Defending Sister
Ghislaine Maxwell’s brother has tearfully protested her conviction in a new interview.
The British socialite was found guilty of conspiracy to entice a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, conspiracy to transport a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, transporting a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of minors, and sex trafficking of minors.
Ian Maxwell, her older sibling, has been particularly vocal over the course of her trial. In December, he described her as a ‘survivor’ and alleged she was ‘effectively pronounced […] guilty to millions of Americans before any evidence was called’ as a result of the media coverage.
The BBC was also criticised in the wake of the verdict after giving airtime to Maxwell’s brother, who cast doubt over the victims’ harrowing testimony. ‘These were Epstein’s crimes and he’s not here to pay that price, and she has been made to pay the price that he should have paid,’ he said.
A new documentary, Ghislaine, Prince Andrew and the Paedophile, will air on ITV tonight, January 18, unravelling ‘the story of how an entitled daughter of a billionaire sank into shame and disgrace through her friendship with paedophile Jeffrey Epstein’, per the show’s description.
Ian Maxwell was interviewed as part of the programme, saying, ‘The ghost in this whole affair is Jeffery Epstein… it’s just wrong.’
‘Dammit, damn. I’m just damn angry. And I don’t see how anyone, anyone looking at this cannot feel that way. It’s just wrong. I have devoted a lot of my time as have my brothers and sisters to help Ghislaine. We believe her. We love her and we hope that she will get the justice that she definitely deserves,’ he continued.
He also delves into her friendship with Prince Andrew, who recently had his military affiliations and royal patronages stripped and returned to the Queen prior to Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s case.
‘They were good friends, I don’t know how often she may have got to see him… she didn’t take any sh*t from anyone, prince, pauper, it made no difference. That was the way we were brought up. So I think that Prince Andrew would have found that rather refreshing,’ Ian said.
Ghislaine, Prince Andrew and the Paedophile will broadcast on ITV tonight at 9pm.
