Agents unearthed a “pile of cash, diamonds” and “a passport from a foreign country” in a safe belonging to Jeffrey Epstein, prosecutors told a judge Monday during a bail hearing for the wealthy financier and accused sex trafficker.
Federal authorities are arguing for Epstein to be denied bail and to remain behind bars until he’s tried for sex-crime charges in acts allegedly involving underage girls.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Just this morning, the government became aware of a safe that contained a pile of cash, diamonds, a passport from a foreign country with a picture of the defendant under another name,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Alex Rossmiller told U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman.
“The passport was issued in the name of a foreign country, it was issued in the 1980s, it is expired, it shows a picture of Jeffrey Epstein, and another name,” Rossmiller said, adding the passport showed Epstein’s residence as Saudi Arabia.
Earlier in the hearing, Berman said he would not rule on Epstein’s bail request until Thursday.
When Jeffrey Epstein was arrested last week, prosecutors say authorities found an expired 1980s passport with Epstein’s photo, but with a different name and an address listed in Saudi Arabia, @stephgosk reports.
