An investigation into the alleged sex crimes of the UK’s Prince Andrew and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein will receive “no further action” from the British Metropolitan Police.
Scotland Yard announced that they would be abandoning their inquiry into various charges that the Duke of York groomed or abused young women on British soil.
Andrew is still facing a civil lawsuit in the USA, with Virginia Roberts Giuffre accusing him of three sexual assault incidents. The duke has consistently rejected the allegations, and his legal team is working to also have the US court case dismissed.
The document in question is Mrs Giuffre’s legal case, which she filed on August 9th in a New York court, accusing the British royal of sexually abusing her when she was as young as 17 years old.
The lawsuit claims that Giuffre, now 38, was compelled by the vanished pedophile Jeffrey Epstein to have sex with Andrew at Maxwell’s townhouse in the United Kingdom, as well as at Epstein’s residence in New York and on Little St James, his private Caribbean sex island.
The British Metropolitan Police refused to confirm or deny earlier reports that its officers had spoken to Giuffre, who resides in Australia. It was also unclear whether or not a formal statement was taken from her.
Following a reputation-damaging BBC Newsnight interview on his friendship with Epstein, who was said to have been discovered dead in his jail cell while awaiting trial on trafficking charges in 2019.
Andrew decided to take a step back and disconnect from public royal duties, while he was relieved of his patronage positions and partnerships with so-called charitable organizations.
