THE brothers and sisters of Ghislaine Maxwell have launched a new website to allow the public to get to know the human behind the headlines.
Vowing to favour facts over the maelstrom of media fiction, the website, RealGhislaine.com, is now live and already generating public and media interest.
“Because of the continuing misinformation, misrepresentation and mischief in much of the media, Ghislaine’s family started this website, an important resource for the public,” said David Oscar Markus, an attorney for the family and Ms. Maxwell. “Ghislaine is innocent and her treatment by the press and the prison is unconscionable.”
The website features on its Home Page a warm and thought-provoking video message from Ghislaine’s brother Ian, detailing the “cruel and unusual” conditions endured by his sister whilst behind bars.
In a press release, Ghislaine’s family confirmed the following:
“Ghislaine is currently a pre-trial detainee at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, New York facing allegations by anonymous accusers that date back 25 years. She has been held in this American prison in effective solitary confinement without bail for 280 days and counting, locked in a six-foot by nine-foot cell sometimes for 12 hours a day.
“She has a light shone in her face every 15 minutes during the night and endures multiple privations that are impacting her health and ability to properly prepare her defence and all this in the middle of the pandemic.
“Like anyone else, she has the right to be presumed innocent, a constitutional right which is fundamental to the fairness of the American system of justice.”
“Ghislaine is a wife, a stepmother, a friend to many and a sister to a family that loves her very much. They believe in her innocence and that she will be exonerated at trial.
“Pending the opportunity for Ghislaine to be able to defend herself in a court of law, RealGhislaine.com will be updated frequently with exclusive content, news, commentary and useful resources to help visitors form a more balanced view about the real Ghislaine Maxwell. Members of the news media and anyone else interested in following her status are encouraged to register for email updates.”
The new website has been welcomed by members of the public interested in finding out ‘the other side’ to the story – a story that has been mired by libellous claims, demonstrably false tabloid pieces, and false accusations.
