Dec 29, 2022 | Political News

A lawsuit by the US Virgin Islands' attorney general accuses JPMorgan Chase of “turning a blind eye” to the crimes committed by infamous child predator Jeffrey Epstein.

The suit, which was launched on Wednesday, accuses JPMorgan Chase of “knowingly providing and pulling the levers through which recruiters and victims were paid.” The complaint was filed in Manhattan District Court, reports the Daily Mail.

USVI AG Denise George alleges that JPMorgan Chase ignored Epstein's actions and turned a blind eye to his 2008 conviction in Florida for procuring a child for prostitution, to keep him as a client.
