The settlement will be paid in cash but lawyers say this is not an admission of liability.

The estate’s executors are also denying wrongdoing.

Another fund for victims of Epstein will receive over $100m in compensation.

It follows the territory’s attorney general saying Epstein bought the island to stop people from monitoring him, and from his victims escaping.

The 66-year-old died in August 2019 while awaiting his trial on sex trafficking charges.
