According to legal papers, Michael Jackson was running “the most sophisticated” child sex abuse operation “the world has known” using companies as a front.
Michael Jackson set up two companies as a front so he could find, groom and sexually abuse kids, a legal complaint obtained claims.
Lawyers for Wade and James say that the abuse was so widespread, Jackson even created two businesses – MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures – in order to arrange “encounters” with young children.
The two entertainment companies created by Jackson were “specifically designed to locate, attract, lure and seduce child sex abuse victims” an updated 2016 complaint filed in the same case states.
“MJJ Production and MJJ Ventures were held out to the public to be businesses dedicated to creating and distributing multimedia entertainment by Michael Jackson, however, in fact, they actually served dual purposes.
“The thinly veiled, covert second purpose of these businesses was to operate as a child sexual abuse operation… in fact under this dual purpose Michael Jackson and select few managing agents/ employees in MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures’s inner circle designed, developed and operated what is likely the most sophisticated public child sexual abuse procurement and facilitation organisation the world has known.”
A judge dismissed the lawsuit in 2017 arguing that the two companies MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures could not be liable – although the judge didn’t rule on the credibility of the sex abuse claims themselves.
Lawyers are now appealing – and a decision is due around September.
Californian lawyer Finaldi said: “I’m absolutely positive we’re going to win this appeal and we’ll be back in the trial court and what we’re looking for is a trial by a jury of 12 to render a verdict as to whether these kids were abused or not.
“And if they were – the extent to which MJJ Productions – which was the production company – was responsible for that abuse.”
If the case does end up going to trial, the court documents contain a number of witnesses who could be called on to testify against Michael Jackson.
Jackson was abusing kids “until the day he died”
Vince Finaldi, a lawyer for Jackson’s accusers Wade Robson, 36, and James Safechuck, 40 said the King of Pop was abusing kids “until the day he died” and has “many more” victims out there.
Robson and Safechuck’s child sex abuse claims against Jackson featured in the new documentary “Leaving Neverland” screened at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday.
While Jackson’s estate has come out and denounced the “Leaving Neverland” documentary and denied all child abuse claims – others believe Wade and James’s accusations are just the very
“We know Mr Jackson was abusing kids for a number of years and the thing about paedophiles is that it is an affliction and a crime that you don’t really age out of,” lawyer Vince Finaldi, the alleged victims’ lawyer, said.
“We believe he was sexually abusing kids all the way up until the day he died – therefore there would be many more victims out there that have not come forward yet.”
