Virginia Roberts, now known as Giuffre, said you could hear a ‘very loud British woman screaming why is this happening, how is this happening ,how could this happen’ in court.

Despite Ms Giuffre’ claims that Maxwell was sobbing on the phone call to the court, reporters who listened in were unable to determine for certain it was her.

Indeed, some reporters said that the British voice that sounded upset was different to Maxwell’s voice when she answered questions and identified herself to the judge on the call.

And the voice did not sound like she had been sobbing moments before.
