Federal prosecutors have asked a judge to deny Ghislaine Maxwell's request to be told the identities of the women who allege the former British socialite and girlfriend of Jeffrey Epstein recruited, groomed and ultimately sexually abused them as young girls.

(CNN)Federal prosecutors have asked a judge to deny Ghislaine Maxwell's request to be told the identities of the women who allege the former British socialite and girlfriend of Jeffrey Epstein recruited, groomed and ultimately sexually abused them as young girls.

In a letter to the judge, prosecutors also said the judge should reject Maxwell's request to be moved into the general population at the Metropolitan Detention Center calling them "premature, meritless, or both. "

Prosecutors said they provided Maxwell's attorneys with the months and years of birth for the three alleged victims identified in the indictment.

Lawyers for Maxwell on Monday also asked the judge to have the Bureau of Prisons move Maxwell into the general population stating that she has been held in isolation where she is surveilled 24 hours a day and watched by prison guards.

Maxwell is being held at a Brooklyn federal detention facility, the Metropolitan Detention Center, while she awaits trial on charges that she recruited, groomed and sexually abused underage girls as young as 14 as part of Epstein's alleged years-long criminal enterprise.

Prosecutors told the judge that the Bureau of Prisons decided against moving Maxwell for "reasons including safety, security, and the orderly functioning of the facility. "
