Ghislaine Maxwell is a British socialite most widely known for her association with a convicted sex offender and financier, Jeffrey Epstein. In 2012, she founded a non-profit group to protect oceans called The TerraMar Project. A week after the sex trafficking charges against Epstein became public, the project was scrapped on 12 July 2019.
Maxwell was charged with the crimes of sex trafficking and enticement of minors by the US federal government in 2020. Maxwell had also been under investigation for similar crimes in the Caribbean territory.
Maxwell’s sex trafficking trial commenced on the 29th of November 2021 with opening statements.
July 2020 arrest
The FBI arrested Maxwell in Bradford, New Hampshire, on 2 July 2020 by using a “stingray” or an IMSI- catcher mobile phone tracking device while she was on the phone with her husband Scott Borgerson, her sister Isabel.
Court trial and detention
Maxwell was charged with the crimes of sex trafficking and enticement of minors by the US federal government in 2020.
On 14th July 2020, the federal judge denied Maxwell bail as “her chances of fleeing were simply too great.” Prosecutors have charged her with a total of six federal crimes, including sex trafficking, enticement of minors, and perjury.
As of 28 April 2021, Maxwell was held in Metropolitan detention center, Brooklyn, New York. Maxwell’s lawyers requested that she be shifted to house arrest under 24- hour surveillance, but Judge Nathan rejected a US$5 million bail package along with the plea stating Maxwell’s “high flight risk.”
Maxwell’s husband suspected of abetting her crimes
Scott Borgerson is a Business Executive Entrepreneur and CargoMetrics Technologies CEO.
Scott served in the United States Navy for four years, and he got the US Marine Officer License in 2000 that expired in 2006.
Between 2003 to 2006, he was also the Assistant Professor at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, and he founded the USCGA Institute of leadership in 2006. Later, he was also involved in the council of Foreign relations.
That Maxwell was involved with Jeffery Epstein for about a decade before her marriage with Borgerson is no secret. Epstein and Maxwell attended several high-profile events together, and Epstein is said to have been ‘instrumental’ in Maxwell’s ascent to the status of an NYC socialite.
This long-drawn-out association of the two brings us to the all-important question- why did Maxwell marry Borgerson and not Epstein? Especially when Borgerson was already happily married to his wife, Rebecca, and had two children.
It is suspected that Maxwell married Borgerson to use CargoMetrics to leverage her sex trafficking agenda. It may well be possible that she used CargoMetrics to transport the girls she allegedly ‘groomed’ for abuse by Epstein.
This extrapolation gained even more excellent traction when Scott Borgerson had resigned from his role as CEO of CargoMetrics, the shipping data analytics company he founded in 2010.
Adding fuel to this already raging fire of controversy is the fact that Maxwell refused to name her husband in the interrogation that she faced post-arrest.
Shipping industry publication Tradewinds News reported that Borgerson stepped down due to intense media interest surrounding his rumored links with Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell.
Privately-held CargoMetrics has confirmed that Borgerson did resign as CEO and from the company’s board in late July to “ensure his presence would not become a distraction from the work he believes in so deeply,” the company said in a statement.
The TerraMar project was allegedly a cover for Maxwell’s sex trafficking agenda.
In 2012, Maxwell founded a non-profit group to protect oceans called The TerraMar Project.
A week after the sex trafficking charges against Epstein became public, the project was scrapped on 12 July 2019.
This focuses a spotlight on caustic suspicion on The TerraMar Project. Rumors argue that it would have continued to thrive if Maxwell’s intentions behind the project of “saving the oceans from humans” were indeed pure.
The TerraMar Project and CargoMetrics are centered around oceanic transportation, giving conspiracy theorists and the media an additional bone to chew on.
In light of the above-stated events, it certainly seems that Maxwell’s entire persona, her entire existence, centered around seeing this sex trafficking partnership with Epstein to fruition.
