British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell’s brothers and sisters filed a complaint to the United Nations on Monday, condemning a judge’s continued refusal to grant her bail.

Maxwell is accused of helping Jeffrey Epstein in his sex trafficking of minors. After being considered a flight risk, she was denied bail for the fifth time in June.

A statement from the family’s attorneys described Maxwell’s treatment as “unprecedented discrimination.”

“All her applications for bail have been rejected, with no regard for the security offered,” Francois Zimeray and Jessica Finelle stated.

The petition requests that the U.N. Working Group on Arbitrary Detention step in and demand the U.S. government release Maxwell prior to her trial. It also requests an independent investigation into her “arbitrary detention.”

Earlier in November, one of Maxwell’s lawyers claimed that the jail conditions she has faced are reminiscent of what fictional character Hannibal Lecter experienced in the 1991 film "The Silence of the Lambs."

Maxwell has been detained since July 2020, with her trial set to commence next week. Her legal team ​​will deny the various claims that she groomed underage girls for convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein to sexually abuse and will offer expert testimony that calls into question her accusers’ memory.
