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.

Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar kicked off House Foreign Affairs Committee
Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar was voted off the House Foreign Affairs Committee Thursday. The action was expected, as Republican members of Congress had criticized Omar’s antisemetic and anti-American rhetoric.
After intense debating on the House floor, the resolution passed with a 218-211 vote. Democrats attempted to pull the race card, accusing Republican House members of racism for removing Omar from the committee.
Omar also accused House Republicans of racism, saying, “I am Muslim, I am an immigrant, and interestingly, from Africa…Is anyone surprised that I am being targeted? Is anyone surprised that I am somehow deemed unworthy to speak about American foreign policy, or that they see me as a powerful voice that needs to be silenced?”
“There is this idea that you are a suspect if you are an immigrant or if you are from certain parts of the world or certain skin tone or a muslim.” Omar said during the heated debate. A fiery Alexandria Ocasia Cortez also chimed in shouting, “This is an attack on women of color!”
Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, from New York, said she had personally witnessed Omar spew anti-American rhetoric. Malliotakis said, “I have been in that committee room where, the representative, equates Israel and the United States to Hamas and the Taliban. Absolutely unacceptable for a member of that committee.”
A four-page resolution was written for the justification of removing Omar from the house Foreign Affairs Committee. The resolution states that in 2019, Omar suggested that Jewish people were buying U.S. political support when she posted on Twitter, “it’s all about the Benjamins, baby.”
Omar also commented on the September 11th attacks saying, “some people did something.” This type of comment is unacceptable for any representative who is sitting on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, lawmakers said.
In the resolution it states that members of this committee should all be held to an “equal standard of conduct due to the international sensitivities and national security concerns under the jurisdiction of this committee.”
