One of Ghislaine MaxwellThe accusers have described seeing “the amusement on her face” as the 59-year-old British social media site “humiliating[ed]”The alleged victim was the “engineer” of Jeffrey Epsteinabuse.

Sarah Ransome, who says she was repeatedly raped by Epstein over a nine-month period starting in 2006, told CBS News that Miss Maxwell was a “very sick woman” who clearly took pleasure in “humiliating” her alleged victims.

“Ghislaine loves to humiliate us. You can see the amusement on her face,” she said.

Ms Ransome described Ms. Maxwell as an “aristocratic pimp” who “staged” abuse perpetrated by convicted pedophile Epstein.

“She’s the organizer. She’s the engineer. She arranges everything,” she said.

Ms. Maxwell’s high-profile sex trafficking The trial is currently underway in New York.

Epstein’s ex-girlfriend and landlady allegedly stalked vulnerable young girls and prepared them for abuse by the billionaire financier between 1994 and 2004.

Prosecutors say Ms. Maxwell was also involved in a number of abuses. She denies all the allegations.

Ms Ransome, who flew to New York City last week to begin testing, spoke out ahead of the release of her new book. Silence is gone: Survive my journey back to hell.

The book, which comes out December 7, details the alleged abuse she suffered at the hands of Ms. Maxwell and Mr. Epstein.

Ms Ransome told CBS she was first introduced to Epstein at a New York nightclub in 2006 when she was 22 years old.

She said she flew to the late pedophile’s private Caribbean island, Little St James, thinking it “sounds great”.

There she said she first met Maxwell and where she found herself stranded on the island – nicknamed “Pedophile Island” by Epstein survivors – repeatedly raped by Epstein.

“It sounds amazing – and then proudly, you’re on this island, and that’s it. Locks and keys,” she said.

“No way out. There is no one to hear your screams and cries”.

Ms Ransome said the alleged abuse continued for nine months, while she feared her family would be murdered if she revealed what was happening.

“I made it very clear to me that the first trip that if I go to the authorities, if I tell my parents, if I tell my friends, if I leave, Jeffrey said to me, ‘I will kill him. I will hunt down your mother and father, and I will kill them,” she said.

“I was frozen, I was petrified,” she said, adding that “you have no other way to escape or run, or you and your entire family will be murdered.”

Ms Ransome, now 37, sued Epstein and Ms Maxwell in 2017 and reached a settlement with them – something she says she now regrets as it will “never have my day in court”.

Epstein died by suicide in his Manhattan cell in August 2019 while he was awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.

Ms. Maxwell was arrested on sex trafficking charges in July 2020 and has been held in federal prison in Brooklyn, New York, ever since.

She faces six counts at her ongoing trial: one count of soliciting a minor to travel to commit illegal sexual acts, transporting a minor with the intent to engage in sexual activity. engaged in illegal sex acts, sex trafficking of minors and three other counts of conspiracy related counts.

She has pleaded not guilty to all charges. If convicted, she faces up to 35 years in prison.
