Epstein accuser says Prince Andrew should 'come clean'

Epstein accuser says Prince Andrew should 'come clean' An alleged victim of Jeffrey Epstein who claims she was also farmed out for sex with Britain's Prince Andrew has challenged the British royal to speak up, saying: "He knows exactly what he's done and I hope he comes clean about it." The jet-setting middle son of Queen Elizabeth II was a years-long friend of the financier who killed himself while awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges. But the prince strenuously denies any knowledge of criminal behavior by Epstein and has described himself as "appalled" by allegations from many women who accused Epstein of sexual abuse. Among them is Virginia Roberts Giuffre.

Attorneys for Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre have asked to interview Prince Andrew in either the U.S. or the U.K. after writing a letter to him addressing the authenticity of a photo including him, Giuffre and Ghislaine Maxwell.

Recent media reports citing sources close to the prince have alleged the photograph is "fake."

Maxwell, who previously dated Epstein, who died by suicide in prison while facing sex trafficking and conspiracy charges, has been accused of working as an enabler to provide Epstein with young girls for sexual encounters. Maxwell denies Giuffre's allegations. Prince Andrew issued a statement denying any knowledge of Epstein's crimes.

A copy of the letter from Giuffre's attorneys to the prince obtained by ABC News reads, in part: "While your recent press statements indicate your sincere desire to help the victims of sexual abuse, we are concerned that certain statements attribute to you (which we hope do not reflect your actual views) are quite inconsistent with a desire to deal responsibly with the serious allegations that have been made. We now see, for instance, a troubling assertion attributed to you that a well-documented photograph depicting you, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, and Ghislaine Maxwell in each other's company is 'fake.'"

The full text of the letter is below.

Interviews citing "a course close to Andrew" first appeared in the New York Post and several British tabloids last week, calling into question the veracity of the photograph. The source reportedly told the London Evening Standard: "Look at his fingers in the photo. The duke has quite chubby fingers, they don't look right and nor does the height of the duke and the girl."

The photo in question, reportedly taken in 2001, first surfaced in 2011 when published by the Daily Mail. It also was included in court documents from Giuffre's lawsuit against Epstein's alleged co-conspirator, Maxwell.

Giuffre has accused Epstein and Maxwell of trafficking her to their powerful friends, and has alleged they directed her to have sex with former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, Prince Andrew, and former senator George Mitchell. All have denied the allegations.

Case against Jeffrey Epstein dismissed following his death

Case against Jeffrey Epstein dismissed following his death A federal judge on Thursday formally dismissed the criminal sex trafficking case against financier Jeffrey Epstein in light of his death in jail earlier this month. U.S. District Judge Richard Berman had said at a hearing on Tuesday that he was legally bound to dismiss the case. Prosecutors said at that hearing that an investigation into Epstein's alleged crimes would continue, and that the dismissal would not prevent them from charging possible co-conspirators in the future.

Lawyers for Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre slammed Prince Andrew ’s “hurtful” claims that a now-infamous photo showing her “In the past, in light of similar denials, we requested an interview with you during which lawyers representing various victims of Mr. Epstein , including

I told Epstein about Andy ’s [ Prince Andrew ’s] sexual interests in feet. Epstein thought it was very Epstein appeared to be collecting private information about Andy ,” Giuffre told the site, adding that Epstein ’s lawyers argued his sex-crime allegations are “ancient” and had originally been settled in

Prince Andrew's most recent denial was issued Aug. 24 in the form of a written statement, in which he claimed: "At no stage during the limited time I spent with him did I see, witness or suspect any behaviour of the sort that subsequently led to his arrest and conviction."

Following is the full text of the letter sent from Giuffre's attorneys to Prince Andrew:

HRH Prince Andrew:

We were pleased to see your recent statement that you were appalled by the predatory sexual behavior of your friend, Jeffrey Epstein.

We have also read various claims by you that certain statements made by our client, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, are untrue. In the past, in light of similar denials, we requested an interview with you during which lawyers representing various victims of Mr. Epstein, including lawyers representing Ms. Giuffe, would ask you questions about your relationship with Mr. Epstein. This would, of course, allow you to fully respond in a dignified manner and appropriate setting that would, we believe, clarify the record for everyone’s benefit, including your own.

While your recent press statements indicate your sincere desire to help the victims of sexual abuse, we are concerned that certain statements attributed to you (which we hope do not reflect your actual views) are quite inconsistent with a desire to deal responsibly with the serious allegations that have been made. We now see, for instance, a troubling assertion attributed to you that a well-documented photograph depicting you, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, and Ghislaine Maxwell in each other’s company is a “fake.”

As you know, counsel in related litigation delivered correspondence to you years ago asking for an opportunity to discuss the circumstances surrounding this long-held photograph. We were puzzled and, we must admit, disappointed that you did not cooperate at that time. Nevertheless, given your new attention to the subject and your pledge to cooperate, we renew our request for your cooperation.

While it is true that certain public denials and assertions on your part concerning our client, Virginia Giuffre, are hurtful to her, we wish to assure you that we will proceed with the utmost respect as we explore your relationship with Mr. Epstein, Ms. Maxwell, and Ms. Giuffre.

We are prepared to host a meeting with you in New York, or we will gladly come to London or to any other place you may designate. We do request, however, that we receive the courtesy of a reply to this letter and that our proposed meeting take place at your earliest convenience.

Very truly yours,
