NEW YORK (Reuters) – The U.S. Virgin Islands has asked British bank Barclays (LON:BARC) to hand over information related to the late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, the bank said on Friday.

Barclays received a subpoena in the United States from the U.S. Virgin Islands in February, the bank confirmed.

“Barclays has already provided its response to this subpoena and complied with its obligations. The USVI is now in the process of serving a similar subpoena on Barclays in the U.K. and Barclays will respond to that subpoena once it is served,” a spokesman for the lender said.

Barclays said Monday that Chief Executive Jes Staley was leaving the bank after a dispute with British financial regulators over how he described his ties with Epstein.

Epstein’s estate was sued last year by the U.S. Virgin Islands, which claimed that he raped and trafficked in dozens of young women and girls on a private island in U.S. Virgin Island territory.
