USVI Attorney General Fired Days After Suing JPMorgan Chase for Financing Epstein Sex Trafficking

HeadlineJan 11, 2023

The governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands, Albert Bryan, is denying claims he recently fired the territory’s attorney general, Denise George, because of her investigations into Jeffrey Epstein, who owned two private islands in the Virgin Islands. Denise George’s firing came days after she filed a lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase for the bank’s role in financing Epstein’s human trafficking empire in the U.S. Virgin Islands and elsewhere. George recently secured a $105 million settlement from the estate of Jeffrey Epstein, who died in 2019 of an apparent suicide in a federal jail in New York.
