After Maximum Maxwell Chatty Juror Lawyers Up A Glance to Nygard Cay, Prince Andrew and Extradition

By Matthew Russell Lee, Author Amazon Patreon Song
BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Radio - Podcast

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 6 -- With the convictions of Ghislaine Maxwell put into doubt by chatty juror Scotty David, but Judge Nathan refusing to even docket, much less grant, his request to unredact Maxwell's letter, Kurt turned north of the border.

He had been covering the cases against Peter Nygard of Winnipeg and the Bahamas, first the civil case and then SDNY's prosecution. But now Ontario had also filed suit, which Winnipeg and Manitoba never did. Nygard had said he consented to extradition to New York, but today wanted to be released on bail in Canada.

  While Judge Nathan limited public access to Maxwell's trial by denying the call-in line, and allowing Maxwell and DOJ to redact much of the filings, it Canada it might be ever worse. There was some prohibition on reporting anything about a case that wasn't seen in court.

  It was like the UN, whose UN Dispute Tribunal had ordered Kurt to destroy evidence of sexual harassment in the UN that he been leaked to him, and that he'd already published. Not only was it impossible to destroy, it also made a mockery of freedom of the press.

But even with three UN Appeals Tribunal judges siding with him, UNSG Antonio Guterres didn't have to do anything. With impunity, his power to censor was absolute.

  In Canada you weren't supposed to public. But what made Nygard worse, in a way, than Epstein, or more close to the UN was that he targeted girls of color, in the developing world, just like the UN peacekeepers.

  Nygard bought and built Nygard Cay, and paid teenagers from Over the Hill in Nassau to come to his so-called pamper parties. There he raped them, then handed envelopes of cash. Similar to Epstein. But an open racist to boot, something about the berry and the fruit. And birds of a feather: Prince Andrew visited Nygard Cay, a new focus for Kurt. More here.

   Kurt was ready for Nygard's extradition, and to report on the hearing as soon as it was over. That would be tomorrow. Until then, he went to the Magistrates Court, to watch his friend and sometimes collaborator Michael Randall Long work his Mag Court magic. That was another story. #LongLaw [so far, in Belt & Roadkill]

 The larger question was how the Scotty interviews came about.  From #MaximumMaxwell to #MirroringMaxwell.
