The judge goes free to the trial against Prince Andrs for sexual abuse


Updated

The Duke of York may be compelled to appear at trial in the United States. Elizabeth II’s favorite son defends his innocence.

The judge gives v
  • Courts Prince Andrs alleges that he is “protected” by an agreement that Virginia Giuffre and Epstein signed against possible lawsuits for sexual abuse
  • monarch Andrs, the prince of scandals who was always “horny”

Judge Lewis Kaplan has released the trial for sexual abuse of Prince Andrs from the complaint of Virginia Giuffre, the American woman who says she was forced to have sex with him when he was 17 and was part of the human trafficking ring of financier and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and his “Madame” Ghislaine Maxwell.
Judge Kaplan dismissed the request of attorney for the stars Andrew Brettler, who alleged that the Duke of York was “protected” by a 2009 agreement Giuffre signed with Jeffrey Epstein that it shielded “second parties” and “potential defendants” against future legal actions (the accuser received half a million dollars, the equivalent of 440,000 euros) as compensation. In his ruling, Judge Kaplan considers that the agreement reached by Giuffre and Epstein (who died in prison in 2019) cannot be applied “directly, mainly or substantially for the benefit of Prince Andrs.”
Prince Andrs anticipated judicial defeat and reached an agreement last weekend to pay the debt of 8 million euros in the shawl he shares with his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson and their daughters Beatrice and Eugenia in the Swiss Alps. The shawl can now be sold for twice as much to pay for legal expenses.
Experts predict that the Duke of York may try to reach an out-of-court settlement with his victim to close the case in exchange for an unspecified amount of money. Virginia Giuffre, who is 38 years old, lives in Australia and is the mother of three children, has nevertheless anticipated that she will not accept a monetary agreement and that she plans to go to trial. “to expose the wiles of the powerful.”
The possibility of a trial has also created great concern in the British family and in Elizabeth II, fearful that the scandal of which she was considered her “favorite” son end up tarnishing the glory of the Platinum Jubilee that is celebrated this year, as the occasion of the 70 years of your arrival to the throne.
Prince Andrs continues to defend his “innocence” despite the doubts raised by the 2019 BBC interview in which he claimed not to remember his meeting with Virginia Giuffre in 2001 and at the London home of Ghislaine Maxwell. newly found “guilty” of sex trafficking during the trial held in the United States.

The Duke of York could be forced to appear in a hypothetical trial in the United States, although the most likely scenario – according to legal experts – would be an interrogation on British soil before Giuffre’s lawyers, that they could also try to interrogate his daughter Beatrice (Andrs assures that on the night of the car he was having dinner with her in a pizza restaurant in the town of Woking).
