Ghislaine Maxwell Taken Off Suicide Watch, Claims ‘Mistreatment’


Lawyers for Ghislaine Maxwell say she’s being “treated worse” than similar detainees because prison officials have resorted to extreme measures to keep her alive until trial in just over 330 days.

“Until recently, Ms. Maxwell was subjected to suicide watch protocols, including being woken up every few hours during the night and being forced to wear special clothing, despite the fact that she, unlike Mr. Epstein, has never been suicidal and was never diagnosed as exhibiting risk factors for suicide,” wrote her attorneys, adding that “as a result of what occurred with Mr. Epstein, Ms. Maxwell is treated worse than other similarly situated pretrial detainees,” reports Forbes.

Maxwell – who is being held in Brooklyn’s federal prison, is accused of abetting deceased financier Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged underage sex-trafficking ring, charges she denies. Epstein – who was being held at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) was found dead in his cell on August 10, 2019 amid a suspicious series of events which included sleeping guards, broken cameras, and the removal of his cellmate.
