Prince Andrew ‘uncooperative’
The Duke of York has “provided zero cooperation” to the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking inquiry, a US prosecutor has said.
Speaking at a news conference outside Epstein’s New York mansion, US Attorney Geoffrey Berman said Andrew’s lawyers had been contacted by prosecutors and the FBI who requested to interview him as part of the investigation.
Mr Berman, who is overseeing the investigation, said: “To date, Prince Andrew has provided zero cooperation.”
Virginia Giuffre, who claims she was trafficked by Epstein, said in an interview with BBC Panorama that she was left “horrified and ashamed” after an alleged sexual encounter with Andrew in London in 2001.
Andrew has consistently denied accusations he had sex with any underage women.
His representatives have yet to comment on the latest development.
