A trove of court documents unsealed Thursday night reveal a high profile list of people that allegedly visited the private island of now deceased and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. The infamous island and Epstein’s private plane that shuffled billionaires and world famous leaders was known as the “Lolita Express,” for the allegations that underage children were abused on the island by friends of Epstein.
In the documents, Epstein’s co-conspirator, Ghislaine Maxwell, who is now in federal custody, revealed during questioning the names of alleged participants in Epstein’s sordid sex island. She made the accusations years ago and is now awaiting trial after federal law enforcement officials apprehended her in New Hampshire, after months of evading arrest.
She allegedly would groom and select the underage girls for Epstein.
Virginia Giuffre was one of those victims, and has accused Prince Andrew of England of abusing her and raping her when she was only 17 years old after being recruited by Maxwell.
Other victims have also spoken out against Maxwell and Epstein. Those victims stories and some of the names of their abusers were disclosed in Thursday’s document dump. Maxwell faces six counts of sex trafficking minors. Her trial is scheduled for July 2021.
Many prominent figures may have visited that island and those who have been named in the documents deny the allegations. That list of famous figures includes former President Bill Clinton, former Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz among many others, most of whose names have been redacted from the documents, according to victims’ allegations and interviews with Maxwell.
Dershowitz, however, has staunchly denied any such allegations, saying he did not take part in the abuse. He spoke out on Twitter Friday regarding the accusations.
“They were false then and now, as shown by her emails and manuscript that prove I never met her,” adding “He lawyers admit she was ‘wrong’ about me and others such as Al and Tipper Gore.”
The documents revealed the details of a 2011 meeting in which victim Virginia Giuffre revealed individuals who allegedly flew on Epstein’s jet and visited his private island.

Mental health crisis spikes among Afghan women after Taliban regained control two years ago
The women of Afghanistan are suffering a mental health crisis since the Taliban regained power two years ago. According to a joint report from three U.N. agencies released Tuesday, approximately 70% of women experience feelings of anxiety, isolation and depression.
The numbers continue to rise, as there has already been a significant jump between April and June of this year alone, with an increase from 57% the preceding quarter.
The report, conducted by U.N. Women, the International Organization for Migration and the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, interviewed women online, in-person and in group consultations as well as individual telesurveys.
592 Afghan women in 22 of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces took part in the study. The Associated Press reports:
They have barred women from most areas of public life and work and banned girls from going to school beyond the sixth grade. They have prohibited Afghan women from working at local and non-governmental organizations. The ban was extended to employees of the United Nations in April.
Opportunities to study continued to shrink as community-based education by international organizations was banned and home-based schooling initiatives were regularly shut down by the de facto authorities — a term use by the U.N. for the Taliban government.
Afghanistan is the only country in the world with restrictions on female education and the rights of Afghan women and children are on the agenda of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
