GHISLAINE Maxwell attempted to “barricade himself” in a prison conference room, it is claimed.
The heiress, accused of being the mistress of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, allegedly created a “security threat” by blocking the door with a cart full of legal documents.
The dispute is the latest over conditions at the Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) in Brooklyn, New York, where Maxwell, 59, is being held ahead of her trial.
There have been arguments that her cell was not clean and claims that she does not flush the toilet.
US prosecutors said Maxwell had in the past been able to bring a “cart full of legal documents” into the video conference room.
They wrote: “However, the accused used this cart to barricade the door, thus preventing MDC personnel from accessing the room. Due to the security threat posed, the accused is no longer allowed to bring the cart into the room. “
The letter to a judge responded to claims by lawyers that Maxwell’s access to video conferencing had been disrupted.
She denies having procured girls and faces trial in November.
Financier Epstein, 66, committed suicide in prison in 2019 on charges of child sex trafficking.
