Prince Andrew’s name has been associated with the Epstein case for several years, which concerns a large-scale sex trafficking operation in minors. Former friend of the American billionaire – who committed suicide in his cell in August 2019 – Prince Andrew is now considered to be “a potential suspect” in the Epstein case, according to information from Reuters. At least he’s seen as “a witness” for now. And while the latter is having a good time at Balmoral Castle, Scotland, where he has been holed up for several weeks, the US justice department wants to ensure that its British counterpart respects its commitment to share the elements of the investigation. . “The United States and the United Kingdom enjoy a close, productive and resilient relationship in law enforcement and mutual legal assistance,” said a member of the United States government, as quoted by The Sun. “We remain in close contact on many active cases on a daily basis and will continue to seek help in criminal matters, as we provide similar assistance in return.”
Prince Andrew: what the American authorities blame him for
Yet US prosecutors blamed Prince Andrew for “zero cooperation” last year, after he has also denied sexual abuse accusations against him for several years. As a reminder, on August 9, the alleged victim, Virginia Giuffre, filed a complaint against the Duke of York, claiming that the latter had sexually assaulted her when she was a minor.
