Epstein, 66, died by suicide in a New York prison on Aug. 10 while he was awaiting trial for charges of sex trafficking minor girls. He was accused of abusing dozens of girls from 2002 to 2005.

"[Justice] is an essential condition for their reconstruction, it is also a condition for more effective protection for the future of other young people," the pair said.
