French National Police appealed Wednesday for more victims and witnesses to come forward to help with their enquiries into alleged sexual exploitation of women and girls by disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.
The public appeal is the result of interviews with three people who came forward to French police following the start of the preliminary investigation into Epstein for alleged sexual assault committed against minors under 15 years of age and other crimes, the Paris prosecutor’s office said in a statement
Epstein, 66, died by suicide in a New York prison on Aug. 10 while he was awaiting trial for charges of sex trafficking minor girls.
Among those of potential interest to French investigators is Jean-Luc Brunel, a French modeling agent and frequent companion of Epstein who occasionally flew on his plane and visited him in jail in Florida, where he served 13 months as part of a deal for a 2008 guilty plea, according to records.
One of the women who accused Epstein of sexually abusing her when she was a teenager, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, has claimed she also had sex with Brunel, along with a long list of other prominent men, including Britain’s Prince Andrew.
