Allegations about Prince Andrew made in U.S. legal case

Andrew groped young woman at Epstein apartment, court documents allege Jeffrey Epstein, billionaire and former friend of Prince Andrew, dies in prison
Lora Ball | 13 August, 2019, 12:09

The accusation is contained in documents from a 2015 defamation case, released by a judge on Friday.

According to The Sun, the claims have arisen from a manuscript of the memoir of former Epstein "sex slave" Virginia Giuffre, released by a NY court.

Buckingham Palace said on Saturday this related to USA proceedings "to which the Duke Of York is not a party".

His complete statement read: "I then listed Senator Mitchell, Prince Andrew, Princess Sarah Ferguson, Miss Yugoslavia, Miss Germany, Alan Dershowitz, Princess Diana's secretary with her children, Mr Trump, Mr Robert Kennedy Jr, Frederik Fekkai, and a couple Noble prize winners as celebrities that I had seen while working for Mr Epstein". "Any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue".

Virginia Giuffre insists she was "lent out" to Prince Andrew for sexual favours, while another woman, Johanna Sjoberg, says she was groped on the breast by the royal.

In the legal papers, Ms Sjoberg said: "I just remember someone suggesting a photo, and they told us to go get on the couch".

All Flights Cancelled Out Of Hong Kong Airport Amid Democracy Protests
The flight cancelations left many visitors stranded in the airport, surrounded by scores of protesters. Police stormed a number of underground train stations, firing tear gas and arresting protesters.

Ms Giuffre claimed Ms Maxwell called her a liar.

The papers were part of earlier allegations by Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre in which she claimed Epstein coerced her into sexual encounters with Andrew, who has always strenuously denied the claims.

It was said in the documents that Ms. Sjoberg was a "young college student" who was approached by "perfect stranger" Ghislaine Maxwell, who "lured" her to Epstein's home with the promise of a "legitimate job". Prince Andrew is said that he had maintained a close relationship to the deceased billionaire.

A massive cache of documents unsealed by a U.S. court this month accused the Duke of having sex with a minor procured by Epstein.

Ms. Maxwell, Epstein's former girlfriend, has denied the allegations.

Attorney General William Barr warned co-conspirators in the sex trafficking case involving convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein that they "should not rest easy" because the case is not over despite Epstein's death over the weekend. I haven't spoken to him in 15 years.
