In September, Virginia Guiffre filed a lawsuit against Prince Andrew accusing him of sexually abusing her on three accounts, at least one of which happened when she was under the age of 18. Since then, the Prince’s lawyers have been trying out every play in the book to have her case dismissed. However in November, US Judge Lewis Kaplan finalised the first court hearing of the trial for 2 January 2022.
The Prince has been vehemently denying all the charges since she first accused him in 2015, but ever since the lawsuit was filed, evidence has been slowly stacking up against the royal. Witnesses have been coming forward with their own account of the story, and the two latest to speak up have said some explosive things about the Prince.
Spotlight on Prince Andrew
The latest episode of 7News’ documentary series, Spotlight: Sex, Lies, and Audiotape, will focus on alleged relationship between the Prince and his accuser. The trailer, which was released this week, featured statements from two witnesses that confirmed the Prince’s presence on sex criminal Jeffrey Epstein’s private island—an island where he reportedly used to traffic underage girls.
The trailer included an audio clip from one of Epstein’s former employees, his telecoms specialist, Steve Scully. The 70-year-old claimed he saw the Prince in the act with Giuffre. He said in the recording:
He [Prince Andrew] removed her bathing suit top and then started grinding against her and grabbing her ass.
They were kissing as well. Virginia was standing there, she kinda looked like she was like a deer caught in the headlights of the car.
Prince Andrew’s cousin
The Sun reported the documentary also features an interview with Prince Andrew’s cousin, Christina Oxenburg. According to her, there is video footage of the royal on Epstein’s ‘paedo’ island. When asked the question, ‘do you think it’s possible that there are videos of Prince Andrew that Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell took for their own insurance?’, she replied:
She [ Ghislaine Maxell] said ‘we have everyone on tape – audio and video.
