French ministers call for their own investigation into Jeffrey Epstein

French ministers call for their own investigation into Jeffrey Epstein Two French ministers called for an investigation into possible French victims of financier Jeffrey Epstein, saying that U.S. probes into his alleged sex trafficking have indicated links to France. Marlene Schiappa, minister for women’s affairs, and Adrien Taquet, a junior minister for the protection of children, said an investigation was necessary because Epstein’s death means his trial expected next year on charges of molesting teenage girls and sex trafficking will never take place. “The death of Mr. Epstein must not deprive his victims of justice,” the French ministers said in a joint statement.

Epstein should have been checked on by guards in his cell every 30 minutes, but that didn't happen the Epstein had been placed on suicide watch after he was found a little over two weeks ago with Epstein 's removal from suicide watch would have been approved by both the warden of the jail and

(New York State Sex Offender Registry via AP, File) Two guards assigned to watch Jeffrey Epstein the night he apparently killed himself in jail have been placed on leave and the warden has been removed as federal authorities investigate the financier's death, the Justice Department said Tuesday.

The announcement came amid mounting evidence that the chronically understaffed Metropolitan Correctional Center may have bungled its responsibility to keep the 66-year-old Epstein from harming himself while he awaited trial on charges of sexually abusing teenage girls.

Jeffrey Epstein is dead of suicide, ABC News is reporting. President Donald Trump even tweeted an Epstein conspiracy theory connecting the Clintons to the death , a claim for which there is no evidence, as #clintonbodycount trended on a Twitter.

Two corrections officers from the New York City jail where Jeffrey Epstein allegedly killed himself on August 10 have been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of two investigations into his death , and the prison's warden has been 'temporarily reassigned ', the Justice Department has

Epstein was taken off a suicide watch last month for reasons that have not been explained, and was supposed to have been checked on by a guard every 30 minutes. But investigators learned those checks weren't done for several hours before he was found Saturday morning, according to a person familiar with the case.

That person was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

The death of Jeffrey Epstein , an American financier billionaire and convicted sex offender, has become the subject of conspiracy theories. Epstein 's reported suicide took place on August 10, 2019

Guards on Jeffrey Epstein 's unit were working extreme overtime shifts to make up for staffing Epstein had been placed on suicide watch after he was found a little over two weeks ago with Epstein ’s removal from suicide watch would have been approved by both the warden of the jail and

While the exact manner of Epstein's death has not been officially announced, a second person familiar with operations at the jail said the financier was discovered in his cell with a bedsheet around his neck. That person likewise spoke on condition of anonymity for the same reason.

Under the jail's protocol, Epstein would not have been given a bedsheet had he been on suicide watch. He was placed on suicide watch last month after he was found on the floor of his cell with bruises on his neck, but he was later returned to the jail's special housing unit for inmates needing close supervision.

On Monday, Attorney General William Barr said that he was "frankly angry to learn of the MCC's failure to adequately secure this prisoner," adding: "We will get to the bottom of what happened and there will be accountability."

The FBI and the Justice Department's inspector general are investigating.

Before Jail Suicide, Jeffrey Epstein Was Left Alone and Not Closely Monitored

Before Jail Suicide, Jeffrey Epstein Was Left Alone and Not Closely Monitored It was Friday night in a protective housing unit of the federal jail in Lower Manhattan, and Jeffrey Epstein, the financier accused of trafficking girls for sex, was alone in a cell, only 11 days after he had been taken off a suicide watch. 

Guards on Jeffrey Epstein 's unit were working extreme overtime shifts to make up for staffing Epstein had been placed on suicide watch after he was found a little over two weeks ago with Epstein 's removal from suicide watch would have been approved by both the warden of the jail and

The Justice Department did not immediately identify the guards placed on leave or the warden who was transferred. The department said the warden of an institution in upstate New York has been named the acting warden at the jail.

Eric Young, president of the union council that represents prison guards, said that such reassignments are routinely done to "protect the integrity of investigations until any formal action, if any, is warranted."

One of Epstein's guards the night he took his life was not a regular correctional officer, one of those familiar with the case said. Union local president Serene Gregg told The Washington Post that one guard was a fill-in who had been pressed into service because of staffing shortages.

Epstein was being held without bail, awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges that could have brought 45 years in prison.

Federal prosecutors in New York are pursuing a parallel investigation into whether any if his associates will face charges for assisting him in what authorities say was his rampant sexual abuse of girls as young as 14.

According to police reports, FBI records and court documents, Epstein had a team of recruiters and other assistants who knew of his penchant for girls and lined up victims for him.
