The Epstein case has a Slovak connection. One of the accomplices of the late American financier Jeffrey Epstein was reportedly the Slovak-born Naďa Marcinková.

Her name is mentioned in the 22-page-long police report from 2006, which describes the orgies both she and Epstein were participating in.

The latest information also suggests that one of Epstein's private jets made a stopover at the Bratislava and the Poprad airports in November 2018, spending not more than six hours in Slovakia.

The financier, recently found dead and believed to have committed suicide in prison in New York, faced accusations of abusing underaged girls and establishing a criminal human trafficking network, trading minors and turning them into sex slaves.

Slovakia has been mentioned as "a source, transit, and destination country for men, women, and children subjected to sex trafficking and forced labour" in the U.S. Department of State Human Rights Report 2016.

Concealed flights

Epstein has long taken advantage of a little-known federal policy that permits the owners of private jets to conceal their real-time movements from public view, the Insider reported. At the same time, most planes are programmed to send their tail number within the automatic dependent surveillance - broadcast system (ADS-B).

Data from this system helped map the movements of Epstein's private Gulfstream jets. The flights connected places where Epstein had his luxury houses - New York, Palm Beach, Paris, and the Virgin Islands.

One of the three Gulfstream planes, with tail number N212JE, was apparently photographed at the Bratislava Airport. The flight databases show that it landed on November 7, 2018. It is unclear if Epstein was on board the plane.

Marcinková's involvement

The Slovak Nadia Marcinková has been described as Epstein's former private pilot. Her official story says that she left for the US as a young girl to work as a model. But the Guardian reported that she "was bought from her parents in eastern Europe by Epstein when she was 15".

Until recently, Marcinkova ran the Facebook fan page Gulfstream Girl, but when the Gulfstream company demanded that she stopped using the name, she changed it to Global Girl. The page is no longer available on Facebook. The Sme daily has not managed to get in touch with Marcinkova.
