Since July 2020, Ghislaine has been held in custody in a detention centre in Brooklyn, New York, following her arrest in New Hampshire on charges of perjury and of assisting her former partner Jeffrey Epstein in trafficking underage girls.

Epstein, a convicted paedophile, took his own life in the Metropolitan Correctional Centre in New York in August 2019, having been charged with sex trafficking.Ghislaine Maxwell sitting in front of a laptop: Ian Maxwell, the brother of former British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, has claimed that his sister’s prison conditions ‘amount to torture’.

Ghislaine has denied all charges against her, but has been refused bail on a number of occasions due to her identification as a flight risk.

The 59-year-old is due to go on trial in July.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Today programme on Wednesday, Ian Maxwell claimed that the conditions in which his sister is being held are ‘degrading’.Jeffrey Epstein smiling for the camera: Epstein, a convicted paedophile, took his own life in the Metropolitan Correctional Centre in New York in August 2019, having been charged with sex trafficking.

Insisting that Ghislaine has been held in ‘effective isolation’ for some 250 days, Mr Maxwell said that her cell is furnished with a concrete bed and a toilet, that she is being given ‘brown’ drinking water, and that her food is ‘basically inedible’.

Mr Maxwell went on to say: ‘There is no natural light, she is under 24-hour round-the-clock surveillance with 10 cameras, including one that moves and tracks her movements.’

The 65-year-old businessman claimed that his sister has been unable to prepare for her trial properly because of her prison conditions, adding that he believes Ghislaine is losing her hair, experiencing trouble with her eyesight and struggling to concentrate.a man wearing a suit and tie: Ian Maxwell claimed that the conditions in which his sister is being held are ‘degrading’.

Denying suggestions that Ghislaine could be a danger to herself, Mr Maxwell insisted that she is ‘resolute’ despite being held in conditions that ‘amount to torture’.

He went on to say that the identities of his sister’s three accusers remain concealed.
