Ghislaine Maxwell, who is accused of child sex trafficking, kept a 58-page list of rules on behalf of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, according to court testimony.
The rules dictated how staff at Epstein’s estates were required act.
One of the rules demanded that they “see nothing, hear nothing, say nothing.”
Epstein’s former housekeep Juan Alessi testified at trial and explained the “very degrading” way that Epstein and Maxwell treated staff.
Evidence was provided including a 2005 manual detailing what was expected of staff.
“Remember that you see nothing, hear nothing, say nothing, except to answer a question directed at you,” it warned on the first page of orders.
“Unless otherwise instructed, NEVER disclose Mr. Epstein or Ms. Maxwell’s activities or whereabouts to anyone,” the rulebook said.
“Do not be bullied … simply be firm,” it warned.

Additionally, staffers were ordered to keep a “gun placed in bedside table drawer.”
The manual also showed that Maxwell and Epstein were, perhaps, paranoid at the time of its writing, which was before Epstein was convicted for having sex with underage girls…
Staff were also required to “advise Ms. Maxwell of any strange telephone calls or enquiries” and “any unusual behavior, such as strangers lurking around the vicinity of the property.”
The rulebook also demanded that each of Epstein’s cars was to have no less than three-quarters of a tank of gas and must contain at least $100 inside.
Alessi, according to the Post, testified that he “was supposed to be blind, deaf and dumb and say nothing of their lives,” referring to Maxwell and Epstein.
The rulebook also insisted staff always have a “polite ‘aim to please’ approach” and never discuss their “personal problems.” They were also told to “be cautious of noise levels and noise.”
In other words, “Unobtrusive is the key.”
“Do not eat or drink in front of Mr. Epstein, Ms. Maxwell and their guests,” stressed the rules, which also forbade chewing gum and allowing cellphones to ring while dealing with the couple or their guests. The house phone “should be answered in three rings or less,” the book warned.
“You do not expound on the weather or any other subject” when entering bedrooms, the guide warned.
