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.

REPORT: China has vast network of covert police stations around the world
China has a vast network of covert police stations abroad, according to a recent report by Safeguard Defenders, an NGO that focuses on human rights violations in China and other Asian countries. These police stations serve consular functions, but are also used by China to crack down on what the CCP deems “illegal” activity of Chinese nationals abroad. The police stations include at least 38 run by the Fuzhou City police, and 22 run by the Qingtian City police. Cities housing these police stations include New York, Toronto (which has three stations), London (two), Paris (three), Buenos Aires, Rio De Janeiro, and Tokyo.
Key findings of the report are below.
“Persuaded to return”
According to China, China has “persuaded to return [to China]” 230,000 Chinese nationals living aboard from April 2021 to July 2022 alone to face charges of fraud and telecommunications fraud. A Yangxia police station set up in Mozambique, for example, persuaded a Chinese national to return to China after being accused of stealing money from his employer. Chinese authorities also put pressure on the accused family to convince the accused to surrender.
Roughly 54,000 Chinese nationals were persuaded to return from northern Myanmar alone, in the first nine months of 2021. In July 2022, the government of Wenchang City warned that its citizens living in northern Myanmar must check in with their local police stations or face multiple penalties including blocking their children from attending urban schools back in China. Similarly, in February 2022, the government of Liayang City stated that Chinese “illegally staying” in northern Myanmar must return or the bank accounts of their immediate family members could be frozen.
The Nine Forbidden Countries
China has claimed that nine countries contain serious levels of fraud and telecom fraud perpetrated by Chinese nationals. Since November 2021, China has declared that Chinese citizens living in these nine countries must return to China immediately unless they have an “emergency reason” or a “strict necessity” to travel or stay in those countries. Those countries are: Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, the UAE, and Turkey. However, the report questions whether these countries are truly awash in such fraud, as most of China’s oversees police stations are in the West, and only one of the nine countries (Cambodia) has such a police station. Chinese staying in the nine forbidden countries, as well as threats to family members as stated above, creates a “guilt-by-association” atmosphere intended to repatriate the Chinese nationals.
According to the report, Chinese police stations abroad serve to bypass “bilateral extradition treaties or other mechanisms of judicial cooperation” to cooperate with CCP-linked NGOs which effectively “[sets] up an alternative policing and judicial system within third countries.” Instead of using international judicial cooperation, which establishes due process, the presumption of innocence, and the right to a fair trial, China uses the above “persuade-to-return” methods and transnational police stations to circumvent international law and coerce Chinese nationals to return to China for trials. These policies show the power of China’s long-arm oppression over its own subjects.
