Former Governor of the Virgin Islands, Kenneth Mapp, is alleged to have visited Jeffrey Epstein’s private island for lunch shortly after taking office.

Former Governor of the Virgin Islands, Kenneth Mapp, is alleged to have visited Jeffrey Epstein’s private island for lunch in September 2015, shortly after taking office, Your Content has learned.

The email obtained by CrimeSpace dated September 22, 2015, was addressed to Epstein and Cecile René Galiber, who was then working as Epstein’s office manager.

“Governor Mapp will come for lunch to the island on Wednesday,” the newly released e-mail reads. “Carlos can use nanna.” Epstein acknowledged the e-mail confirming the luncheon was on his schedule.

Kenneth Mapp, who has served in various political capacities in the Virgin Islands including as Lieutenant Governor, assumed office as Governor in January 2015. When approached about his visit to Epstein’s island, Mapp did not comment citing an ongoing deposition, according to CrimeSpace.

Cecile René Galiber, the wife of John de Jongh, a former Governor of the Virgin Islands, has also been implicated in Epstein’s affairs. Court documents filed by JPMorgan Chase in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York assert that Epstein maintained a relationship with top officials in the Virgin Islands, allegedly exchanging financial benefits and influence for protection, according to The Washington Post. The documents claim that Galiber was instrumental in Epstein’s dealings with the Virgin Islands government.

In a lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase, the Virgin Islands accused the bank of facilitating Epstein’s trafficking operations. JPMorgan Chase countered the allegations by pointing to its obligations to report evidence of Epstein’s illegal activities and criticizing the bank for failing to do so. The bank ultimately agreed to a settlement of approximately $290 million without admitting any wrongdoing. The settlement is yet to be approved by a District Judge in Manhattan.

Cecile de Jongh has not made any statements regarding the email or the allegations.

The revelations have raised concerns regarding the extent of Epstein’s connections and influence within the government of the Virgin Islands. Epstein was a client of JPMorgan Chase from 1998 to 2013 despite facing legal issues related to prostitution.

This settlement follows a similar agreement by Deutsche Bank which agreed to pay $75 million in a lawsuit brought by Epstein’s victims, according to CNBC.
