Victims of Jeffrey Epstein are suing Deutsche Bank and JPMorgan Chase, alleging they 'played an integral role' in the pedophile financier's campaign of sexual abuse.

In two lawsuits filed in New York on Thursday, the women say the banks facilitated Epstein's sex trafficking operation because large sums of money were withdrawn to pay his victims.

They are also accused of ignoring 'red flags' and putting profit before the law. 

Bradley Edwards, a lawyer in the case against Deutsche Bank, told the Wall Street Journal: 'The time has come for the real enablers to be held responsible, especially his wealthy friends and the financial institutions that played an integral role.

'These victims were wronged, by many, not just Epstein. He did not act alone.'

Epstein took his own life in a New York prison in 2019 while awaiting trial for sex trafficking.

Both lawsuits are class action cases that name the plaintiffs as 'Jane Doe 1, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated'.

Jeffrey Epstein is pictured outside his New York mansion in 2019. The suits say much of his sex abuse took place in the mansion.
