Jeffrey Epstein case: why did they cite the businessmen?

According to what sources familiar with the matter told the US media, what the authorities are looking for are documents and communications related to JPMorgan and Epstein as part of the phase of provision of evidence in a civil case filed by the prosecution in New York against the bank last year.

The US Virgin Islands sued the country’s largest bank in a Manhattan federal court for allegedly facilitating the sex trafficking plot of which he was accused Epstein -who committed suicide in prison before trial, in 2019- allowing him to be a client and helping him send money to his victims.


A few days ago, it transpired that JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon, will have to declare in the case under oath in May to contribute information about why the bank retained the financier as a customer if, as the prosecution argues, he knew that he had been charged with sexual offenses as early as 2008.

JPMorgan, which denies the allegations, cut ties with Epstein in 2013 and went on the offensive, attributing responsibility for the ties with the financier to one of his former executives, Jes Staleywhom he demands to pay $80 million for his compensation for that period in a counterclaim.
