France is now apparently opening its own independent inquiry into the Jeffrey Epstein pedophile scandal that has rocked the US elite. As Fox News reports:
A statement by prosecutor Remy Heitz said the decision to open a preliminary investigation was based on “elements transmitted” to his office and “exchanges with American authorities, competent in the so-called Epstein affair.”The investigation involves information regarding minors 15 years old and older, the statement said.
No details were provided about what “elements” led to the probe and whether it might concern in-person testimony from alleged victims of Epstein who had maintained an apartment at a luxury address near the Arc de Triomphe.
Many questions still remain, however. What do the French hope to gain from such an inquiry? And, more importantly, are they in possession of any pieces of information that could further link Epstein to members of the American elite and deep state?
