GHISLAINE Maxwell attempted to “barricade” herself in a prison conference room, it is claimed.
The heiress, accused of being a madam for paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, is said to have 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 Centre (MDC) in Brooklyn, New York, where Maxwell, 59, is being held before her trial.
There have been rows about her cell not being clean and claims she does not flush her loo.
US prosecutors said Maxwell had been able in the past to bring a “cart full of legal materials” into the video conference room.
They wrote: “However, the defendant used that cart to barricade the door, thereby preventing MDC staff from being able to access the room. Because of the security threat posed, the defendant is no longer permitted to bring the cart into the room.”
The letter to a judge was in response to lawyers’ claims that Maxwell’s access to video conferences had been disrupted.
She denies procuring girls and faces trial in November.
Financier Epstein, 66, killed himself in jail in 2019 facing child sex trafficking charges.
