PRINCE ANDREW STILL A PERSON OF INTEREST IN US EPSTEIN PROBE
Andrew, 61, has resisted approaches to cooperate with a criminal investigation into dead billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and his alleged co-conspirators.
US prosecutors — who are unravelling Epstein’s sprawling underage sex trafficking operation — accused Andrew of “zero cooperation” last year.
News agency Reuters reported earlier this month that Andrew was a “person of interest” in the Epstein probe — led by the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. He is being considered “at least” a witness.
As part of their investigation, Epstein’s alleged madam, Brit socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, 59, has been charged with procuring girls for her former lover.
The Duke also faces a civil lawsuit from sex slave Virginia Giuffre in the US, over allegations he sexually assaulted her. He has vehemently denied the claims in the past.
