No, not really

Ghislaine Maxwell dyes hair and changes outfit in ‘trial makeover’

Not to be too horrendously ungallant about it but for a lady of a certain age that’s “dyes hair a different colour” not “dyes hair”.

And changing clothes? After how many months on remand in, as is implied, the same outfit?

  1. TBF: like most brunettes her hair is mostly grey by now and there is no point touching up roots if no one sees you. Public trial however..

  2. Hair and make up by local stylist Hilaria Clontini.

    Ms Maxwell unexpectedly dies of arsenic poisoning before testifying.

  3. Guilty or innocent, the punishment is the incarceration and mental and physical abuse by the American (In)Justice system.

    We stuff innocent people into prisons a lot (remand prisoners), and the prisons are generally awful. This is hardly unique to the US.

    Plus, Maxwell has demonstrated a sustained lack of cooperation with the justice system over multiple cases over the years, including leaving the country; she was in hiding when arrested on these serious charges. She’s clearly a flight risk; she put herself inside.

  5. “We stuff innocent people into prisons a lot….” .
    This is true, but this country abides by a humane set of rules relating to remand prisoners. To be held in a small cell, allowing 4 paces in any direction; to have no natural light, but rather a fluorescent light which is on 24 hours a day; to have sleep disturbed every 40 minutes, allegedly to make sure she is still alive; to be constantly humiliated by being monitored while using the toilet, or showering, by male prison officers; to be fed rancid or rotten food, and water with a suspected purity, all adds up to inhumane behaviour, not unusual in the American prison system. Perhaps those in charge of the detention centre were trained in Abu Grihab?

    Tell that to Craig Charles. For the most part they’re in with the convicted getting bullied and buggered.

  7. UK don’t deprive remanded of clothes, visits, hygiene etc

    I’m not making excuses for the US / New York justice systems. I’m saying ours is not something to be proud of. Kicking a cat five times rather than eight times doesn’t make you a hero.

    Some parts of the US are very civilised. People given prison sentences can even choose, within limits, when to serve their term.

    And again, if she’d accepted court papers, given depositions instead of leaving the country, and not gone into hiding, she could have been attending court from a nice hotel.

    1 – Yes, we’re not perfect. Tommy Robinson’s remand was also cruel and inhumane. He left broken, malnourished and suicidal

    2 – Maxwell, afaik, did not leave USA. She went to a country house she owned. Please provide evidence she did
