The sister of the British social activist, Gislyn Maxwell, told the BBC’s Today program that she was not able to adequately prepare for her trial, which will take place in July.
Ian Maxwell said that while there was “justice for victims of abuse, there was also justice for those accused”.
Mrs. Maxwell is detained in a US federal prison accused of helping her ex-boyfriend, Geoffrey Epstein, care for young girls. Deny this.
Her older brother’s comments come as she is seeking bail for the third time.
A judge previously ruled that she was in danger of fleeing, but her brother said she did not seek to flee.
“She needs to stay where she is,” said Gloria Allred, the US attorney who represents 20 women who have said they are victims of Mr. Epstein.
