The Massachusetts Institute of Technology: one of the most prestigious institutions of the world, was recently involved in a scandal. Apparently, the MIT lab director had strong ties with Jeffrey Epstein. For those who don’t know Jeffrey Epstein was an American financier and a convicted sex offender. He was imprisoned on charges of harassing young girls back in the 2000s. He committed suicide in his prison cell on August 10th, 2019 before the trials could take place. Ronan Farrow is an American journalist and a government adviser. His recent publications in the New York Times exposed the MIT fraud.

The MIT lab directors were actively involved in false fundraising with the sex offender for years. Approximately, $800,000 was transferred between the two individuals. The report in the New York Times also stated that Jeffrey Epstein raised around $7.5 million in fundraising.

The incident is a huge blow to one of the most elite universities in the world. MIT is the number one institute for computer science and technology. The fraud has shattered a major chunk of their reputation. The president said the school would investigate the matter. His announcement followed the resignation of two prominent researchers from Media Lab; over revelations, the lab took money from Epstein after he served time a decade ago for sex offenses involving underage girls.

Investigations Are Underway

Numerous media corporations other than the New York Times published the story. Currently, the stance of the institution is unknown. The University has changed the lab directors. However, the case has to investigate and the lab directors have to trial. Consequently, investigations are already underway. Moreover, the university is devising schemes to retrieve the lost money. The court’s decision is still pending. Let’s hope for the best!
