Two Executors of the convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein have been accused of hiding millions of the billionaire pedophile’s assets in an investment trust.

Darren Indike, Epstein’s personal attorney, and Richard Kahn, the estate’s staff accountant, have long been accused of hiding nearly $13 million in trust to avoid paying victims.

The transfer of funds to the Butterfly Trust, which Epstein recorded in 2013, came nearly a year after Epstein killed himself in a Manhattan jail in August 2019.

The trust received a wire transfer of $13 million in April 2020 after the liquidation of another investment fund in which Epstein had a stake, according to The New York Times. Some of that money was transferred months later to three newly created companies, which list Indyke, Kahn, and their wives as beneficiaries, according to court documents cited by the newspaper.

A filing from the attorney general for the Virgin Islands Denise George stated:

“The government discovered that substantial funds kept secret from the government were transferred for the benefit of the coexecutors in an apparent effort to enrich themselves and shelter these assets from recovery.” 

Epstein estate lawyer Daniel Weiner denied that the allegations against Indyke and Kahn were true and that both “categorically reject the baseless assertions of wrongdoing made against them.”

“The 2013 Butterfly Trust mentioned in today’s filing by Ms. George has nothing whatsoever to do with Mr. Epstein’s estate or any funds available to it,” he said.

These latest allegations continue a long legal battle between Epstein’s estate and organized territory.

In an amended complaint filed in February 2021, George accused Indike and Kahn of acting as “captains” in his pedophile operation, forcing some foreign victims into arranged marriages with American victims so they could enter the United States.

More details of this report from The Daily Wire:

New York bank regulators have stated that Epstein utilized the Butterfly Trust to pay individuals linked to his grooming of young girls for sexual abuse.

Litigation brought by authorities in the U.S. Virgin Islands has been ongoing against Epstein’s estate for several years as litigators claimed Epstein unfairly benefited from tax benefits. The deceased financier owned two islands there, one of them known as the so-called “pedophile island.”

The new filing against Indyke and Kahn comes almost a month after longtime Epstein companion Ghislaine Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in prison after being convicted on multiple conspiracy and sex trafficking charges.

The sentencing comes two years after Maxwell, 60, was arrested at her secretive million-dollar home in New Hampshire and was brought to New York to face justice. She has been in federal custody ever since because she was denied bail.

Maxwell was convicted in December of conspiring with Epstein to recruit, groom, and sexually abuse young girls.
