Prince Andrew did not ultimately escape American justice. However, he tried everything to avoid receiving the judicial summons in the context of the Epstein case. According to information relayed by People, he still spent nearly 20 days in a mansion in Windsor. Only he decided to join his mother, Queen Elizabeth II at Balmoral in Scotland. It was then that the police were able to deliver the papers to his domestic workers in Windsor on August 27, 2021. Despite the summons received, Prince Andrew does not seem to be really worried. He never ceases to assure his mother that he will succeed in erasing the allegations of rape which weigh against him.
But the queen’s son will have to act quickly since normally, from the day he received his summons, he only has 21 days to present himself, according to American law. However, since he does not live in the country, he could take advantage of an extended period. In addition, the charges against him are substantial. He is accused by Virginia Giuffre of sexual assault. She accuses him of having taken advantage of her in 2001, when she was only 17 years old. She also lodged a complaint against him for these facts. For his part, Prince Andrew continues to deny these allegations. He is convinced that he will be able to prove very quickly that this whole story is false.
Prince Andrew is convinced to get out of this legal situation
If he seems to be sure of himself, it is because with his lawyers, he intends to have Virginia Giuffre’s complaint rejected by means of a procedural flaw. At issue: a confidentiality agreement signed by the complainant in 2009. The complainant would indeed have entered into an agreement with Jeffrey Epstein. This could contain clauses preventing her from bringing actions against the people she accuses of being accomplices of the deceased businessman.
