Virginia Giuffre an accuser of sex-trafficker and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, is moving on to sue Prince Andrew for allegedly sexually assaulting her at the age of 17.
On Monday, Guiffre told reporters, “The powerful and rich are not exempt from being held responsible for their actions. I hope that other victims will see that it is possible not to live in silence and fear, but to reclaim one’s life by speaking out and demanding justice.”
Her allegations began years ago, along with her accusations against Epstein. In 2019, Guiffre said, “He [Prince Andrew] knows exactly what he’s done and I hope he comes clean about it. Thank you.”
Reporting by AP suggests Guiffre had three sexual encounters with Andrew, “in London and at Epstein’s New York mansion when she was 17 — and in the U.S. Virgin Islands when she was about 18. She alleged Epstein paid her about $15,000 following the London trip.”
Since Epstein’s final arrest and death, Andrew has maintained his innocence and even defended his relationship with the sex trafficker. The lawsuit was filed in a Manhattan federal court.
