The U.S. Virgin Islands Attorney General (AG) Denise George filed a lawsuit Dec. 27 against JPMorgan Chase, claiming the institution “turned a blind eye” to late child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s criminal activities.

The suit was filed on behalf of the U.S. Virgin Islands government and requests a jury trial, according to Fox Business. George alleges JPMorgan Chase violated the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, The Virgin Islands Criminally Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act and the Virgin Islands Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act, the filing shows.

“Upon information and belief, JP Morgan turned a blind eye to evidence of human trafficking over more than a decade because of Epstein’s own financial footprint, and because of the deals and clients that Epstein brought and promised to bring to the bank,” George wrote in the filing.

She alleges the decisions were supported and approved by senior members of JPMorgan Chase’s leadership teams in various divisions. (RELATED: ‘Jeffrey Epstein With The Clintons?’: Lawyer Asks Alex Jones About Pedophilia. It Goes About How You’d Expect)

“Indeed, it was only after Epstein’s death that JP Morgan belatedly complied with federal banking regulations regarding Epstein’s accounts,” George continued. The suit further alleges JPMorgan concealed wire and cash transactions related to Epstein’s ongoing international sex trafficking operation.

JP Morgan Chase did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller’s request for comment.
