A compensation fund for Jeffrey Epstein‘s victims has been approved, according to information first obtained by The Daily Mail. Moreover, the fund doesn’t limit how much money each victim is compensated.
The deceased pedophile’s victims will be able to put in their claim for a share of his $634 million estate on June 15, when the program is officially set up, according to the news site.
However, there is a catch. The victims will have to surrender their right to sue Epstein’s alleged co-conspirators in order to receive compensation from this fund, The Daily Mail reports. Moreover, the women who served as Epstein’s recruiters can make a claim as long as there is a “credible basis they acted under duress.”
In order to receive compensation, victims will have to provide proof of their allegation.
Seventy women have indicated that they want compensation for the traumas they endured. Among them, Maria Farmer, who alleges that Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell sexually assaulted her in 1996 in a guesthouse on the estate of L Brands founder Les Wexner in New Albany, Ohio.
The formal order for the compensation fund was signed off by Carolyn P. Hermon-Percell, a magistrate judge of the Superior Court of the Virgin Islands.
Epstein died under mysterious circumstances in a Manhattan federal correctional facility in July 2019.
The women have a nine-month window to submit their claims after the program begins on June 15. Even if the claim was outside the statute of limitations, they can still participate, according to the report.

50-Foot Christmas Tree Outside Fox News Set on Fire by 49yr Old Homeless Man
Just before 12:15 am Wednesday morning, an arsonist set fire to the 50-foot tree in front of Fox News’ Midtown headquarters on 6th avenue. The suspect, a 49-year-old with three prior arrests, was quickly caught and taken into custody.
The man has two previous arrests for drug possession and one for public intoxication. The motive is unclear, and Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said detectives are looking into whether mental illness was a factor.
“The suspect is identified as 49-year-old Craig Tamanaha, who is homeless, with a last known address in Brooklyn” reports ABC 7 New York. Police said the suspect climbed up “the metal superstructure” underneath the artificial tree and lit papers he had brought with him on fire, then shoved the papers into the tree structure.
He then climbed down and watched from the street level as it burned, and he was spotted by building security who pointed the man out to police officers posted in nearby Rockefeller Center,” reports ABC.
A lighter was found in his possession, and he has been charged with criminal mischief, reckless endangerment, arson, criminal nuisance, endangering others, criminal trespass, criminal tampering and disorderly conduct.
Fox says it will rebuild the tree, which took more than 21 hours to assemble and consisted of 10,000 glass ornaments and 100,000 lights.
