NEW YORK, Sep 7 (EUROPE PRESS) –
The director of the Media Lab of the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Joi Ito, has resigned from his post following the publication on Friday of a story in 'New Yorker' that says he covered up the donations of the convicted millionaire and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein .
The news was given this Saturday by the newspaper 'The New York Times', which quotes Ito himself. Epstein committed suicide in custody on August 10.
The news on Friday tells how Ito made efforts to avoid transcending Epstein's donations when he was already being investigated for the crimes that later resulted in his conviction.
The recordings that support the report and the stories of Media Lab staff suggest that Epstein donated at least $ 7.5 million to the institution, including 2 million from Microsoft founder Bill Gates, 5.5 million from Leon Black – -Apollo Global Management– and gifts ordered by Epstein or made on your behalf always on the condition that they be computed as anonymous contributions.
