Hot EPSTEIN: Ghislaine Andrew & The PED0-Grisly Story of Sex Abuse & Palaces

Prince Andrew Strongly Denies 'Underage Sex Slave' Allegations...
-After Being Named in Lawsuit Filed in U.S. Court Papers


Daily Mail UK, 2 January 2015


A woman has claimed she was forced to have sexual relations with Prince Andrew when she was a 'sex slave' for a U.S. multi-millionaire.

A case has been lodged in court in Florida this week connected to allegations against Jeffrey Epstein, who has been convicted of soliciting sex with an underage girl.


Court documents reported by the Guardian state:

'One such powerful individual Epstein forced the woman to have sexual relations with was a member of the British royal family, Prince Andrew (aka Duke of York).'

Prince Andrew has previously denied any sexual contact with young women associated with Epstein.

A spokesman for the royal said:


Quote:
'This relates to long-standing and ongoing civil proceedings in the United States, to which The Duke of York is not a party.
'As such we would not comment on the detail. However, for the avoidance of doubt, any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue'

NB: The 'complainant' wishes to remain anonymous.... go figure!

Update re: VIDEOs/Photos-Prince Andrew in US Lawsuit>Sex Slave TALKS

WORLD EXCLUSIVE: The First Full Account of the Masseuse at the Center of the Explosive Prince Andrew 'Sex Slave' Drama...
-BUT is She Telling The Truth?


  • Prince accused of abusing 'Jane Doe 3' at orgy where she was 'sex slave'
  • Jane Doe 3 is Virginia Roberts, whose story was first uncovered in 2007
  • She told extraordinary story of three years working for billionaire Epstein
  • Said that she was paid to give erotic massages to tycoon and associates
  • Claimed Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of Robert, acted as his 'madame'
  • Palace has emphatically denied Prince had relations with underage girls
  • Now the most complete story yet of this young woman can be published
Daily Mail UK, 4 January 2015





It is the most extraordinary story of sex, power, influence and the abuse of young girls and it has already sent Jeffrey Epstein, one of the richest men in America, to jail.

And today this sordid saga erupted once again with Prince Andrew sensationally forced to deny having any sexual contact with the woman whose claims have dogged him for years. Last week, the Prince was accused of abusing ‘Jane Doe 3’ – an anonymous name used in American court papers – at an orgy where she was being used as a sex slave. Jane Doe 3 is Virginia Roberts, whose story was first uncovered in 2007 by The Mail on Sunday following a painstaking investigation by our reporter Sharon Churcher, who tracked her to Australia.

The story Miss Roberts told was extraordinary – how she spent three years as an under-age ‘sex slave’ working for billionaire Epstein, a friend of the Prince, and paid to give erotic massages to the tycoon and his associates. She also claimed that Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of disgraced tycoon Robert Maxwell, acted as Epstein’s ‘madame’.

The allegations by Miss Roberts are threatening the reputation of the Queen’s second son. The Palace has emphatically denied that the Prince has had relations with underage girls.

Now, thanks to the court documents Miss Roberts lodged in Florida last week, The Mail on Sunday can publish the most complete story yet of how this young woman was exploited by Epstein’s shuttered world of seedy sex and influence. We spoke to Miss Roberts twice, the last time just 12 months ago. While fragments of her testimony to us were reproduced last week, only now can we present her comprehensive account with previously unpublished material.

Last week it was sensationally claimed that Prince Andrew had taken part in what, it was implied, was sex with a girl who was under the age of consent according to the law in Florida.

As the papers lodged in the Palm Beach court spell out:

Quote:
‘Epstein forced Jane Doe 3 to have sexual relations with a member of the British Royal Family, Prince Andrew (aka Duke of York).
‘Epstein instructed Jane Doe 3 that she was to give the Prince whatever he demanded and required Jane Doe 3 to report back to him on the details of the sexual abuse. Maxwell facilitated Prince Andrew’s acts of sexual abuse by acting as a “madame” for Epstein.’

In response, Buckingham Palace issued a strongly worded denial.

But Miss Roberts’s account differs. She says she first encountered Epstein and later Prince Andrew through Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of the disgraced newspaper tycoon Robert Maxwell.

She was working as a changing room assistant in the spa at Donald Trump’s palatial Florida country club, Mar-A-Lago, where her father was a maintenance manager. Soon after her 15th birthday, in 1998, she says she met Ghislaine at the club.

The socialite was a friend of Epstein’s and the pair were known in New York and London for their hedonistic lifestyle, which concerned Royal courtiers after Andrew began to associate with them. Andrew was photographed surrounded by topless women during one holiday with them in Thailand and was pictured sweatily cavorting with Ghislaine at a Halloween sado-masochistic-themed party in Manhattan, reinforcing his public image as a party loving playboy.

Youthful pose: Virginia Roberts as a teenager in 1997, before she met Jeffrey Epstein


Miss Roberts says she had no idea of the risks she was running when she leapt at an invitation from Ghislaine to work for Epstein...


‘I was wearing my sexy white Mar-A- Lago uniform – a white miniskirt and a skintight white polo top – and studying an anatomy book when I was approached by this striking woman in her mid-40s with a very proper British accent – Ghislaine,’ Miss Roberts told The Mail on Sunday.
‘She noticed what I was reading and I told her I wanted to become a masseuse and she said she worked for a very wealthy gentleman called Jeffrey Epstein who was looking for a travelling masseuse and I’d get training and be paid large amounts of money.’

Miss Roberts was told she could start work immediately and was driven to Epstein’s sugar-pink mansion on the Palm Beach waterfront. The stairway was decorated with photos of naked young girls and Miss Roberts eventually would learn that she, too, was being photographed by hidden cameras.

‘But I was too nervous to take it in,’ she says. ‘Another lady led me into Jeffrey’s bedroom. It had a king-size bed, and a spiral staircase that led down to a pool.

‘The lady walked me straight through into the massage room. It was part of a suite – a shower room, a steam room and another closet-sized room where I later learned the sex toys were kept.
‘Jeffrey was lying face-down on a table, completely naked. He asked me a whole bunch of questions and within the first hour, he knew my life story. I told him I’d been a runaway and I’d lived on the street and I’d taken ecstasy tablets and I wasn’t a virgin and he said, “So you’re a bad girl in a good girl’s body”.’

‘The lady told me to follow her instructions. She had me put oil on my hands and then she grabbed one of his feet and started to massage it and she told me to take his other foot. Then she took off her shirt and started rubbing her breasts across Jeffrey and told me to take off my clothes. He had sex with me and the woman fondled me.
I was thinking, “This is wrong. This is not legitimate massage.” But they liked me. The lady said, “She’s got a knack for it.’’ And I thought, “These are important people. I must be doing something right.” The lady gave me $200 [£130] and said I was to come back the next day.’

Miss Roberts was nauseated by the sexual acts that she was instructed to perform. But she was charmed by Epstein’s rags-to-riches life story – which, he intimated, was an example to her.

‘Jeffrey said he wanted to be my mentor,’ says Miss Roberts. ‘I felt that he and Ghislaine really cared for me. We’d do family things, like watch Sex And The City and eat popcorn.
‘But it was a sick family. I was a paedophile’s top girl, being trained up for a British Prince. He trained me to do whatever a man wanted. I was worried, but I would do anything to keep Jeffrey happy and keep my place as his No 1 girl.’

It was in 2001 that Miss Roberts was told she would be flying to London – and after they landed they drove straight to Ghislaine’s house.

‘Ghislaine showed me upstairs to a small bedroom. That night I gave Jeffrey an erotic massage. I was jetlagged. I went to sleep.

‘The next morning, Ghislaine came into my room. She was chirpy and really giddy. She jumped on the bed and said, “Get up, get up, sleepyhead. You’ve got a big day. We’ve gotta go shopping. You need a dress because you’re going to dance with a prince tonight.”

She said I needed to be “smiley” and bubbly and very happy to be around him and give a lot of energy to him because he was the Queen’s son. Miss Roberts said they went shopping for a £5,000 Burberry bag and other designer dresses, perfume and makeup. ‘We got back to Ghislaine’s house around 4pm and I ran straight upstairs to have a shower,’ she said.

‘When I went downstairs, Ghislaine and Jeffrey were in the lounge. No one seemed too fussed even though we were expecting the Duke of York any minute. There was a knock at the door. There was a car outside with two men, who I think were security. Ghislaine led Andrew in and introduced me and we kissed each other on the cheek as I’d been told is the English custom.

‘Ghislaine served tea. She knew Fergie, who I gathered was the Prince’s ex-wife, and they talked very fondly about their daughters. Then Ghislaine played one of her favourite guessing games.

She asked Andrew how old he thought I was and he guessed 17 and they all kind of laughed about it and Ghislaine made a joke that I was getting too old for Jeffrey. She said, “He’ll soon have to trade her in.”’

It was widely known in Jeffrey’s set that he liked young girls.

Miss Roberts says she sat between Jeffrey and Andrew at dinner, claiming:

‘Andrew was making eye contact with me at every chance and concentrating on my plunging V-neck top. He didn’t ask me anything about myself. I just sat there with a smile frozen on my lips. Ghislaine had whispered, “The Prince seems really interested in you.”




Her big day: Miss Roberts with her husband Robert on their wedding day in Thailand in 2002







‘We went on to Tramp. We were led into a VIP area and Andrew got me a ****tail from the bar then he asked me to dance. He was the most hideous dancer I had ever seen. He was grabbing my hips and he was pouring with perspiration and he had this cheesy smile.

I was used to being used for sex by men but it was not behaviour that I was used to in public, and not from a Prince who had daughters. I felt everyone was watching us...


By her account, Miss Roberts’s first tryst with the then 41-year-old Prince allegedly took place later that night at Ghislaine Maxwell’s London townhouse.

‘All of us went upstairs and I asked Jeffrey to snap a picture of me with the Prince. I wanted something to show my Mom. Ghislaine and Jeffrey left us after that,’ she said.
‘In the morning, Ghislaine said, “You did well. He had fun.” We flew straight back to the States. I suspected that the only reason we went to London was that I was a “gift” to Andrew.’

Miss Roberts makes the extraordinary claim that she was paid about $15,000 (just under £10,000) by the 58-year-old Epstein as a reward for sleeping with the Prince and other sexual services for Epstein.

There is no suggestion that the Prince knew that Epstein paid her.





Going public: Miss Roberts as she is now



‘I was totally under Jeffrey’s spell. I was his personal sex slave. Ghislaine joked about how young I was when they introduced me to Andrew.’

Despite the Palace’s vehement denials of impropriety, Miss Roberts says:

‘It was made clear to me that my job was to do whatever pleased him’ – adding that she ‘wouldn’t have dared object’ to any demand.
‘The Prince didn’t give me money with his own hands,’ she added. ‘Jeffrey always took care of paying me after I “entertained” his friends.’’

Andrew was at the time a special trade envoy, but after Epstein was prosecuted he resigned. He subsequently broke off his friendship with the financier and has been working to rebuild his reputation with his charitable trust. His focus is on trying to grow British prosperity, including training young people to become ‘economically active’ through schemes such as apprentices and a digital enterprise award.

Speaking later, Miss Roberts said she remains mortified by her meeting with Prince Andrew...


‘To be honest, I was sort of excited to meet the Prince. That was the lifestyle to which Jeffrey had accustomed me,’ the blonde, now 30, said.
Miss Roberts says she met Andrew for a second time around Easter 2001, at Epstein’s Manhattan mansion.

‘I was in Florida when I was called up and told I was needed in New York,’ she recalls. ‘When I got to the mansion, I was told, “Get ready. You are meeting someone in the library.” Andrew was sitting there in a big leather armchair behind which there was a desk covered with photos of girls and young women, including one of me.
‘I was almost nude in the picture. I don’t think Andrew could have missed seeing it when he walked in. Ghislaine had just given him a present, some kind of big blow-up toy that was his Spitting Image puppet. He was smiling ear-to-ear. He looked like a kid whose parents were taking him to Disney World.

‘A beautiful girl called Johanna Sjoberg, who worked for Jeffrey, was sitting on Andrew’s knee. Ghislaine guided me over to Andrew and I think he recognised me though I don’t know if he remembered my name. We kissed each other on the cheek and Ghislaine placed me on his other knee.’

In an interview with The Mail on Sunday, Johanna has confirmed the encounter, saying she was 21 at the time and had been hired by Ghislaine to answer phones and serve drinks in return for $20 (£13) an hour.
Ghislaine subsequently asked her to give Epstein foot massages, she elaborated, and the tycoon tried to persuade her to ‘touch his nipples’. ‘He couldn’t believe I refused. No one else had ever done that,’ she said.





Friends: Prince Andrew with Jeffrey Epstein in New York in 2011 after the financier's conviction


After being introduced to Andrew in the library, she sat on his lap. Miss Roberts says it was made clear to her that she was expected to have sex with Andrew – although again the Palace completely refutes any suggestion of impropriety.

‘Ghislaine said, “You should take him upstairs for a massage,” ’ she says, burying her face in her hands. ‘I took him upstairs to the Dungeon. He undressed and lay face down on the table. I started with his feet, then his calves the way Jeffrey liked it.’

This time there was no extra payment for the session, she added. ‘Because I wasn’t on the road, I just got my usual hourly rate, which at that time was $200.'





Miss Roberts claims that her first tryst with the then 41-year-old Prince allegedly took place later at the London townhouse of Ghislaine Maxwell, pictured


She met Andrew one final time on Epstein’s Caribbean island, where she says she entertained him with an ‘orgy’.

‘I flew there with Jeffrey and Ghislaine,’ she says, ‘and seven Russian girls who didn’t speak a word of English turned up with a modelling agent. Jeffrey was so excited. He said, “We’re going to do a big photo shoot with you and the girls.” The agent took the pictures.

‘They were very provocative. We were topless and he had us in sexual positions. Then were told to assemble in a big cabana. When I walked in, Andrew and Jeffrey were seated in chairs. Jeffrey directed us with hand gestures. Jeffrey and the Prince were laughing. The next day, Andrew was gone.

‘I remember thinking I would never have a normal life again but, as sick as it sounds, Jeffrey was my master. I was totally in his power. I never thought of trying to escape.’.


For her 19th birthday, in August 2002, Epstein purchased a plane ticket to Thailand for her, where he enrolled her in a massage course.
Asked if she planned to escape, she blushes. Despite the degradation she endured, she insists that she never would have lied to her ‘mentor’.

‘I really did think that I could give him better massages if I studied in Thailand,’ she says...


Shortly after arriving there, however, she met an Australian martial arts expert, whom we have agreed to identify only by his first name, Robert. They fell in love and, just ten days later, they married.
‘Robert taught me how to live again,’ says Miss Roberts.

For 11 years, they lived in virtual seclusion in a rural suburb of Sydney. But a year ago, the couple moved back to America with their three young children. ‘I still dream about Jeffrey. I still wake up at night in tears,’ said Miss Roberts, who is working on a memoir.

Her memory of Prince Andrew plays heavily on her mind.
‘A lot of powerful men were part of Jeffrey’s scene, but I specifically remember Andrew,’ she says.

But she says it is now time ‘to fight’, adding:

‘When I think of what he and these other men did, it breaks my heart. I am going to name every guy who deserves to be named when I go to court.’

And yesterday she said she was being ‘unjustly victimised again’ after her account was called into question.

‘These types of aggressive attacks on me are exactly the reason why sexual abuse victims typically remain silent and the reason why I did for a long time,’ she says. ‘That trend should change. I’m not going to be bullied back into silence.’

Epstein’s lawyer Jack Goldberg said the allegations were old and salacious and had been consistently proven to have no merit.


Ghislaine Maxwell was not available for comment but has previously branded all claims against her as ‘untrue’ and ‘obvious lies’.

Update re: VIDEO/Photos-Prince Andrew SexSlave >'FBI Have Tapes'

Young Woman at the Center of Prince Andrew Scandal Says the FBI Have Videos of Her Having Sex with Jeffrey Epstein and 'Powerful Friends' While She was Underage

  • Virginia Roberts alleges she was 'loaned out' to friends of Jeffrey Epstein
  • Named Prince Andrew and lawyer Alan Dershowitz among those involved
  • Claimed she was forced to have sex with prince on three occasions
  • In sworn statement filed yesterday, she claimed FBI possess key evidence
  • Said Epstein had cameras in rooms where she had sex while underage
  • Believes that FBI now has the videos which would support her claims
  • Prince Andrew, Alan Dershowitz, Jeffrey Epstein strongly deny allegations
Daily Mail UK, 8 Feb 2015


The woman at the centre of the Prince Andrew 'sex slave' scandal has told a US court that she believes the FBI has videos of her having sex with Jeffrey Epstein and his 'powerful friends' while she was underage.



Virginia Roberts, who alleges that she was loaned out to the Duke of York and other high-profile Epstein associates, also stated that she feared for her life while working as Epstein's 'sex slave'.

It comes a week after Epstein, an American billionaire who has been convicted of soliciting underage prostitution, hit out at 'outlandish attacks' by the 'gossip media' over the case.

Scroll down for video





Accusations: Virginia Roberts (right) has claimed that she was forced by financier Jeffrey Epstein, a convicted sex offender, to have sex with Prince Andrew when she was 17, pictured together in early 2001



Miss Roberts, 31, accuses Epstein, the Prince, and – among others – the leading American defence lawyer Alan Dershowitz of abusing her while she was underage.
Prince Andrew, Ghislaine Maxwell - also named in court documents - Mr Dershowitz and Jeffrey Epstein have vigorously denied the accusations.
A Buckingham Palace statement said: 'It is emphatically denied that the Duke of York had any form of sexual contact or relationship [with the woman].


'The allegations made are false and without any foundation.'

In court papers, Miss Roberts claims she was forced to have sex with the royal on three separate occasions - including an orgy - at three locations; London, New York and the US Virgin Islands.
She is said to have been 17 at the time of the alleged meetings, meaning she was underage according to the law in Florida.

Miss Roberts, now 31, claims that she was groomed on behalf of Epstein by Maxwell – daughter of disgraced newspaper owner Robert - when she was 15 and forced into a world of sexual abuse.

In her latest court filing, submitted to a Florida court on Friday, Miss Roberts stated US authorities were holding back damning evidence of activities that she was made to engage in while working as Epstein's 'sex slave'.
Swearing under oath, Miss Roberts said she knew that 'Epstein maintained videos in some rooms' where she had 'sex with other powerful people'.





Evidence: In the latest filing, Miss Roberts, pictured in 2011, stated US authorities were holding back damning evidence of activities that she was made to engage in while working as Epstein's 'sex slave'



She added that she believed that those videos could be used as blackmail.
She said:

'Based on my knowledge of Epstein and his organization, as well as discussions with the FBI, it is my belief that federal prosecutors likely possess videotapes and photographic images of me as an underage girl having sex with Epstein and some of his powerful friends.'

Miss Roberts also detailed interactions she had with investigators from the FBI that led her to believe she was the victim of a 'major cover up' - proof of Epstein's power and influence.
She also claimed she was physically abused by Epstein's friends to such an extent that she feared for her life.

She said: 'Without going into the details of the sexual activities I was forced to endure, there were times when I was physically abused to the point that I remember fearfully thinking that I didn’t know whether I was going to survive.'

When she told Epstein about this abuse, the billionaire responded 'you get that sometimes', she stated.

Roberts is seeking to join a long-running lawsuit against the US government filed by other alleged victims of Epstein to a federal court in Florida.
The women claim that Epstein’s plea deal violated their constitutional rights, and that his powerful allies – including presidents and other high-profile personalities – may have helped win him special treatment.
As well as the affidavit, Roberts filed previously undisclosed receipts for a flight from New York to Thailand in September 2002.

There is also a receipt of a stay costing several thousand dollars at the Royal Princess hotel in Chiang Mai. All the bills appeared to have been paid for by 'J Epstein'.

Roberts has previously alleged that she was sent on the Thailand trip by Epstein to learn Thai massage and interview a Thai girl 'to bring back to the United States' for him.
Instead, she stated in the most recent affidavit, she saw it as a 'chance to escape' after meeting a man - now her husband - and confiding in him about her situation.

Last week, Prince Andrew was pictured as he returned to his royal duties after a second attempt to have him testify about underage 'sex slave' Virginia Roberts failed.

Update Re: VIDEO/Photos-Prince Andrew's EX Defends Him on SexSlave Allegations+FBI Have Tape

Koo Stark Reveals the Truth About Prince Andrew: After 32 years' Silence, Prince's Ex-Lover Gives Account of Affair to Defend Him from 'Sex Slave' Claims

  • Prince Andrew accused of sleeping with an underage Virginia Roberts
  • But former girlfriend Koo Stark believes these allegations are untrue
  • Says her time with him has convinced her beyond doubt he is not guilty
  • Recalls him as 'a nice man, a tender, loving and caring normal boyfriend'
Daily Mail UK, 15 Feb 2015




From taking her ****atoo to Buckingham Palace, to playing boardgames with the royals at Balmoral, Koo Stark (centre and left) reveals her life with Prince Andrew, and why it has convinced her he would never have slept with Virginia Roberts. In this world exclusive account she recalls a 'tender, loving and caring' man (right) who was always swooned over by women and had no need for 'forced sex'. She also recalls the emotional moment she learned he was to go war, and how she was kept from greeting him when he returned home with a rose clamped between his teeth.


Prince Andrew's former lover Koo Stark has broken her 32-year silence over their relationship to launch an explosive intervention into allegations he slept with a teenage ‘sex slave’.

Miss Stark, whose daughter is the Duke of York’s godchild, writes about their relationship for the first time in today’s Mail on Sunday.
She uses her personal and compelling account of their time together to make a point-by-point rebuttal of the devastating claims.

Her extraordinary revelations are intended to drive a wrecking ball into a lawsuit in which masseuse Virginia Roberts says she was forced to offer sexual favours to the Duke. Prince Andrew has denied having sex with Roberts.
None of Prince Andrew’s family or friends has been allowed to mount a detailed defence of him.

However Miss Stark, a 58-year-old artist and photographer, is so enraged by Ms Roberts’ claims, she has broken ranks – as well as her self-imposed silence – to protect her former boyfriend.

In her extraordinary account, she reveals:
  • How, from her first date with Andrew in 1981 to the media frenzy over a mildly erotic film role that would tear them apart, the character and behaviour of the man she loved and has remained friends with bears no resemblance to the figure described by Ms Roberts.
  • That he was ‘tender, loving and caring’ and ‘very attractive to women’ and asks: ‘What need would he have for any women to be supplied for “forced sex”?’
  • How Ms Roberts has invoked Andrew’s name simply to bring in ‘heavy artillery’ in her fight against paedophile US billionaire Jeffrey Epstein and the American state.
  • When Andrew first asked her to ‘BP’ for lunch, she thought he was inviting her to a petrol station, rather than Buckingham Palace… and how she headbutted Prince Charles when she mistakenly curtseyed before kissing him.
  • How she tried ‘everything’ to stop Andrew going to fight in the Falklands War.
  • Remarkable insights into life with the Royal Family – including the moment her pet parrot caused mayhem at Buckingham Palace when it trapped its claws in the wallpaper.

Primarily, Miss Stark uses her account to rally to Andrew’s defence. She said:

‘I know too much about the media and the law courts to allow the disgrace of an innocent man.
‘That is why I have decided to reveal some details of my relationship with Andrew. My view is clear: I believe him to be a good man and I believe I can help rebut, with authority, the allegations against him.
‘Prince Andrew is a dear friend and godfather to my daughter. I’ve only known him to be honourable and honest, with Christian values.
'I couldn’t shrug off Virginia Roberts’ assassination of his character any more than he has been able to. He was being accused of the very worst kind of behaviour.
'The stain on his reputation is spilling across his life like blood from a new wound.’

Describing the Duke as ‘playful and tactile’ and ‘a normal boyfriend’, Miss Stark said: ‘This is not the person portrayed by Virginia Roberts.

‘I believe she and her lawyers are waging a war through the American courts and invoking his name by way of heavy artillery. American-style litigation takes no prisoners.’





Still friends: Andrew and his ex, Koo Stark, at a 1999 event. She says Virginia Roberts' allegations bare no relation to the man she knows



Prince Andrew has been named in a complex lawsuit brought by Ms Roberts. She is suing the state for failing to protect her rights when it entered a plea deal with Epstein, a former friend of the Duke.
Epstein was sentenced to 18 months jail on one count of sexual misconduct in 2008.
Ms Roberts alleges she met Epstein in 1999 at the age of 15 and he forced her to make herself available for sex with his powerful and well-connected friends until she turned 19.
She claims she had three encounters aged 17 and 18 with Prince Andrew – one in New York, one in London and one on Epstein’s private island in the Caribbean.

But Miss Stark is certain that the Duke would not take advantage of a ‘sex slave’ – and the Royal Family is known to be deeply distressed by the claims.
A photo taken by Andrew of the Queen with the Earl and Countess of Wessex and released on Facebook last week is being interpreted as an act of faith by Her Majesty.
The Queen has also promoted the Duke to the naval rank of Vice Admiral to mark his 55th birthday this Thursday.

However Palace protocol dictates that none of the Royal Family can speak out publicly, making Miss Stark’s intervention even more compelling.
Last night Buckingham Palace said:

‘We would not comment beyond what we have already stated in respect of Virginia Roberts.’

WORLD EXCLUSIVE: The true story of Andrew, me... and a stain on his reputation that's spilling like blood from a new wound
By KOO STARK





Good friends: The pair at a charity event in 1999. Koo says the prince is a 'good man' who has been deprived of the ability to defend himself



On a cold dark day in London last month, I was thinking about coffee and pondering my New Year’s resolutions when the phone rang. ‘Do you think he did it? asked the voice at the other end.
Instinct told me it was about Prince Andrew. ‘Who did what?’ I stalled.
The voice replied: ‘Do you think Prince Andrew slept with a teenage sex slave?’ I stopped breathing, muttered something unintelligible, hung up and Googled for news.

My first reaction was fury, then disbelief, at the lurid allegations being made against a man I have known well for more than 30 years.
Prince Andrew is a dear friend of mine and godfather to my daughter. I’ve only known him to be honourable and honest, with Christian values. I dismissed this latest story as just another sexual slur to add to the list of criticisms of him in recent years.

But I couldn’t shrug off Virginia Roberts’ assassination of his character any more than he has been able to. He was being accused of the very worst kind of behaviour.
The stain on his reputation is spilling across his life like blood from a new wound.

I know too much about the media and the law courts to allow the disgrace of an innocent man. That is why I have decided to now reveal some of the details of my relationship with Andrew.

Most people in this country have formed their own impression of him – either good or ill. My view is clear: I believe him to be a good man.
I firmly believe I can help rebut, with authority, the allegations against him. I will use those details to challenge Virginia Roberts’ description of a man which does not tally with the person I have known for more than half my lifetime.

I will also use them to question the legitimacy of Andrew’s name being spuriously dragged into a case in which he cannot defend himself.
And finally, I will use them to demonstrate how the global media is hiding behind the skirts of Ms Roberts’ testimony to besmirch an innocent man – just as it besmirched me when it claimed I’d crossed the line from appearing in mainstream films containing erotic scenes, to films made for the sex industry. (Falsely accused of appearing in porn, I have sued for libel and won.)

This new attack on Prince Andrew brought back poignant memories of the Caribbean island of Mustique, more than three decades ago.
It was then, as I holidayed with him in the autumn of 1982, that news of our romance first broke. The press we received rivalled that of Wallis Simpson and Edward VIII.
(Now, with Ms Roberts in the news I find myself wondering, is it only American women who are the nemesis of British Royal men?)

I also understand what it is to be accused of a crime.
An allegation of theft was made by my ex-fiance, American banker Warren Walker, who is the father of my daughter.
The judge entered a verdict of Not Guilty but in the media coverage of the case a lot of damage was done to my reputation.
It’s an experience that resonates with Prince Andrew’s current circumstances. The tragedy for him is that he cannot clear his name himself.

In a separate civil case in which I was involved with Walker, a judge held that ‘the father had consistently and over an extensive period given deliberately false evidence’.





Today: Koo says Virginia Roberts has 'besmirched an innocent man', spreading a stain across his life 'like blood from a new wound'



No referral was made by the courts for consideration to be given to a prosecution for perjury. I understand, therefore, that it is possible to face someone prepared to tell lies against you in court. It is wrong that this can happen and for that to go unpunished.
To be clear: Andrew has denied the accusations Ms Roberts has levied against him.

An official Buckingham Palace spokesman last month said:

‘It is emphatically denied that the Duke of York had any form of sexual contact or relationship with Virginia Roberts.
'The allegations made are false and without any foundation.’

Andrew later issued a personal denial at Davos, Switzerland. He said:

‘For the record, I refer to events that have taken place in the last few weeks.
'I just wish to reiterate and to reaffirm the statements which have already been made on my behalf by Buckingham Palace.’


I know him to be honest and I believe him. But it doesn’t matter what I think. The question is, when you have heard what I have to say, what will YOU believe?

The story of our first meeting is an instructive example of how our story was twisted from the start.
It was widely – and wrongly – reported to have been in Tramp, the very same nightclub where Ms Roberts says she first partied with him. It’s undisputed in books and newspaper articles.
Except what has been reported as fact is wrong. We didn’t meet there at all.

We were introduced by mutual friends on the night of his 21st birthday party in February 1981.
I was at the National Theatre understudying in the Tennessee Williams play Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf.
Friends, including the landlady of my basement flat in Chester Square, Belgravia, were taking Prince Andrew for a meal but the ‘spare girl’ had gone missing. It turned out I was her understudy too.

I was tired and more than a little grumpy after the curtain came down and I hadn’t committed to what was effectively a blind date.
I wasn’t even dressed to go out by the time a Royal Protection Officer knocked on my door and swept his torchlight past me, checking the flat.
I decided I ought to go and picked out a red suede Maxfield Parrish trouser suit with a nipped-in waist (this was the Eighties!) and a blue Chloe fur-lined raincoat for the winter night.





In the street, a car door opened. I climbed in and settled myself into the passenger seat, wrapping my coat around me.
Prince Andrew proffered his hand and said,

“Hello, I’m Andrew.” I don’t know what I’d expected. But it wasn’t for a prince to be doing his own driving.

We went to a restaurant called Bewicks on Walton Street, not far from Harrods, and ended up in the doorway together, jostling shoulder to shoulder.

As I stepped forward, Prince Andrew did the same and we crashed into each other before both swiftly stepping back. The same thing happened a second later. ‘I am a Prince, I go first,’ he said.
Being American, I retorted: ‘I am the Prince’s date, I go first,’ but he got his foot into the door just ahead of me, chuckling. We immediately had an easy familiarity.

As you can see from this exchange, he likes strong-minded women with a sense of humour.
It’s something I have in common with his ex-wife Sarah, the Duchess of York, who is, like me, older than Andrew.
I’m not saying he would never be interested in a meek teenage blonde, I am just pointing out that he is attracted to the very opposite.

In Ms Roberts’ diaries, which were apparently written eight years after the event (she must have a remarkable memory), her entry from the night she claims to have accompanied Prince Andrew to Tramp describes a boor whose behaviour and habits bear no resemblance to the gentleman I know.
Ms Roberts alleges she and Andrew were ‘let into the VIP section, where Andrew did not hesitate to grab us both an alcoholic ****tail and found a table in the corner of the extremely packed club. We took a few sips then headed to the dance floor.
'He was the most incredibly hideous dancer I had ever seen, and not to mention how embarrassing it was to have to be the one he smashed pelvises with, even if he was a Prince.’
She continued: ‘We only stayed at the club for little over an hour before his Highness was dripping from sweat and ready to embark on a quieter setting where we could get to know each other better, and from the way he was fondling me on the dance floor, I knew this was a man’s polite way of saying he wanted to intimately get acquainted.’


I’m sorry, but this is ridiculous. Don’t you think people would notice a member of the Royal Family at Tramp, behaving the way she depicts Prince Andrew on the night in question? Where are the pictures, the gossip column entries, the witnesses?

Indeed, my experience of being with Andrew on our first date in Bewicks informed me of the effect he has on any gathering, be it a restaurant, a club or a Royal court.
Conversation drops. Body language changes. There is a bow wave of deference. But Ms Roberts will have us believe this extraordinary hour in Prince Andrew’s life passed unchronicled.

It was in Bewicks that I first learned something that is today widely known and accurate: Prince Andrew does not drink alcohol. Not at all. This flatly contradicts Ms Roberts’ account.



Let’s consider her derogatory description of his behaviour towards her. In my experience, being in Prince Andrew’s company was never as Ms Roberts claimed.
Then, as now, he was very attractive to women. What need would he have for any women to be supplied for ‘forced sex’?


'Come to BP for lunch,' said Andrew. I thought, why IS he inviting me out to a petrol station?






Bearskin: Images from Koo's private collection reveal the playful relationship the two of them shared until it was torn apart


Consider the following. The man I met that first night had impeccable manners. He collected me from my home, drove us to the restaurant, managed to have plenty of fun without consuming any alcohol, drove me back and secreted a note which I found the next morning on my rustic Biedermeier dresser. ‘Come to BP tomorrow for lunch,’ it said.
Initially I wondered why he was taking me to a petrol station – it took me a moment to realise he meant Buckingham Palace. I went.

We had lunch on trays in the nursery which was the suite of rooms where he and Prince Edward had grown up, but was by then his flat in the Palace.
The meal was brought into the rooms which overlooked Green Park and Constitution Hill by an immaculately presented footman in tails yet Andrew himself was easy and informal.
He was playful, tactile and friendly. And that’s how it started, immediately.

I was single, he was single, we had every reason to be carefree and no reason not to be. When Andrew comes into your life there is no room for anyone else. He takes up all the space.
He walked into my life and that was it: he was my life. There was no discussion. None was needed. Suddenly I was his girlfriend.

The weeks and months that followed created some of the happiest memories I have of my life.
I could come and go to visit my boyfriend in Buckingham Palace without causing an international scandal – I even used to take my pet parrot with me. Candy was a roseate ****atoo.

On one such day, a page came in carrying a huge silver tray with tea on it. Candy took fright and flew up to the ceiling, where she got her claws stuck in the 1970s hessian wallpaper.
She couldn’t get down, so Andrew took charge, found a ladder used by Royal staff to clean the chandeliers and rescued her.

On another occasion, I went to the Palace, only to find he had moved rooms and I found myself on the wrong floor walking up and down calling out ‘Aaaandreeeeeew.’
Luckily, I was not mistaken for Palace intruder Michael ***an and arrested, but eventually found by a page and directed to his new rooms.





Mismatch: Koo admits the pair made an odd couple - he didn't drink in an age when not drinking meant being antisocial, and she took part in yoga when spiritualism had yet to become fashionable


It was a blurring of two very different worlds. I bought Andrew his first pair of denim jeans and he gave me a T-shirt of his which I loved. It said ‘Don’t Panic’. He bought me one of my own emblazoned with ‘Here comes Trouble’. I didn’t know whether to be pleased or insulted. Either way, looking back, he was right.

The point I’m trying to make is that Andrew is a nice man, a tender, loving and caring normal boyfriend.
Did I say normal? We did make an odd couple, especially in the 1980s when it was considered antisocial to abstain from alcohol and unusual, if not suspect, to practise yoga, as I have always done. Andrew adopted the practices he found useful for his health and I never minded being considered eccentric for standing on my head!

One of the things which united us and gave me insight into the real man was our shared interest in photography. Andrew is also skilled behind the camera but unlike me is technically gifted.
He could get anything broken to work again, took cameras apart and put them back together just for fun, he was a much better student than me.
We were both taught darkroom techniques by master printer and photographer Gene Nocon at his darkroom under the Royal Opera House and Andrew did all his own black and white printing.

This is not the person portrayed by Virginia Roberts. I believe she and her lawyers are waging a war through the American courts and invoking his name by way of heavy artillery. American style litigation takes no prisoners. It’s the antithesis to mediation or moderation.

The eminent Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz is also accused of receiving sexual favours from her.
Here is an edited extract of a defence he wrote for an English audience last month: ‘I have filed a sworn statement, subjecting me to perjury charges if untrue, categorically denying all the allegations and providing specific disproof of them. Prince Andrew may, of course, be in a different situation because he is a member of the Royal Family.

‘He is not as free as I am to pursue legal charges and make the same kind of public defence as I am able to. But if I am successful in disproving the charges against me, as I’m confident I will be, this will work to the Prince’s benefit, since it will establish that his accuser lacks credibility.’






Unwelcome attention: As the couple tried to relax in Mustique in 1982, they couldn't escape the press



He leaves no room for doubt about his own position or what he believes Prince Andrew’s to be. He also highlights how hard it is for Andrew to fight back.

Ms Roberts seems to be operating on the old myth that the Royals never explain and never complain but in this I believe she has erred. It is extraordinary. But it is not unprecedented.

In 1849, Prince Albert, on behalf of his wife Queen Victoria, brought a copyright action against a publisher who had acquired etchings of their children and dogs.

Then, in 1983, one of the scant times in hundreds of years of British history a reigning monarch has instigated legal action, the Queen sued for breach of confidence over revelations by a former member of Royal staff which led to the headline ‘Queen Koo romps at the Palace’.

It is true the usual policy has been a do-nothing and say-nothing strategy imposed by the men in grey suits at the Palace.
It’s still too often the default setting and today is even more outmoded and ineffectual than it was in 1982. While Prince Andrew diplomatically mounts his defence, the damage to his reputation is already done.


The rose in the teeth of my returning war hero... the moment that all hell broke loose







'He was a Royal romantic hero – so, everyone wanted to know, who was his girlfriend? All hell broke loose'



He’s a man whose efforts have been, unfairly, more often met with criticism than praise.
His decade of work as a UK Special Representative for Trade and Investment went unapplauded.
He is a war hero who, alongside the other brave men of the Falklands Task Force, risked his life for his country.

While Prince Harry is lauded for his service on the frontline in Afghanistan, Prince Andrew’s courage in the Falklands conflict is all but forgotten.

I recall the day he was pictured, victorious, disembarking from HMS Invincible with a rose between his teeth. It was the day he became irresistible to the press. He was a Royal romantic hero – so, everyone wanted to know, who was his girlfriend? All hell broke loose.

Before we attracted any media interest, we’d enjoyed a wonderful period of grace.

We used to be able to walk around London without much attention. Andrew’s private detective looking furtive in his dark suit drew more sideways glances than we did.
After the screaming headlines began, our lives were consumed by the fabricated scandals procured by chequebook journalism and the unregulated attention of dozens of paparazzi.
We were watched 24 hours a day, chased, harassed, libelled, lampooned and tormented. He was protected by thick Palace walls and Royal Protection Officers.

He was acutely aware I was on my own and did everything in his power to help. My privacy and anonymity were never to be restored.
Privacy is as essential to life as oxygen. I have not subsequently been able to make a ‘first impression’ and I understand the isolating effect of notoriety.
The press attention should have driven us apart but we gained a deeper understanding of each other through this shared experience.

The day the Falklands War was announced in April 1982, Andrew and I were due to have lunch at our favourite Italian restaurant, Mimmo d’Ischia, in Belgravia.
He telephoned me at my flat in Chester Square and said that he wouldn’t be able to come because the country was at war.

He was then attached to HMS Invincible as a Sea King search-and-rescue pilot.
I was so shocked I responded unreasonably and with anger. I slammed around the kitchen, crashing cupboard doors, shouting at him down the line that he was being ridiculous, that this was the worst excuse I’d ever heard and that I was expecting him in 15 minutes.

I threw the phone down, went out and got into my green Mini, turning the car radio on just in time to hear the BBC announcing war had been declared against Argentina.
I was so startled, I drove straight into the back of a parked Post Office van.

Leaving my car where it was, I returned to the flat where Andrew had by now arrived. He was looking pretty miserable, albeit very handsome in his uniform.
We said goodbye only after I tried everything – and I mean everything, both reasonable and unreasonable – to stop him going.






He left giving me a small volume of Kipling’s poems with a bookmark on ‘If–’, reminding me that he was one of the men and that this was his job.

I couldn’t watch him drive away. I didn’t go outside for days and sat glued to BBC World News. We were able to stay in touch with the occasional ship-to-shore call and we wrote long letters.

It was only at the time of Invincible’s eventual homecoming in September that year that I first understood what a destructive role the media would play in our relationship through the constant thirst for news and gossip about us.

Like any other military wife or girlfriend, I had planned to go to meet Andrew’s ship. Instead, I was invited to wait for him in his rooms at Buckingham Palace a few days before he docked.

Princess Diana’s treatment at the hands of the paparazzi proved the age of deference was over.
From the moment that iconic photograph of her legs visible through a backlit skirt was taken, she became the first Royal victim of modern media manipulation. I became the second, so this was a precautionary measure.

My reunion with my boyfriend took place privately in Buckingham Palace. I watched him on television disembarking in Portsmouth from the comfort of his sitting room.
It seemed like a matter of minutes before he walked in and we were together.
Then Andrew went to Balmoral for the peace and quiet and family reunion he craved.

Due to work commitments, I followed him up a few days later, catching the train from King’s Cross, laden with luggage containing virtually my complete wardrobe.

Even so, I ran out of walking socks and had to raid Prince Edward’s drawers for spares. (He was in New Zealand at the time.)

If the night at Bewicks provided me with my first lesson in royal etiquette – Royals are always first through the door – then my stay at Balmoral provided the second.

The day I arrived, I walked downstairs and into a drawing room full of courtiers who started bowing and curtseying in my direction.
I guessed it wasn’t for me and that it could only mean there was a senior Royal right behind me. I turned and saw Prince Charles, whom I hadn’t yet met.

I curtseyed, only to find him bending down to give me a kiss. I started to get back up – and in doing so headbutted him. He held his head in his hands groaning while I wilted with embarrassment.
He came towards me again and this time I got it right. He whispered kindly in my ear: ‘It’s kiss, then curtsey.’

At Balmoral, life is lived outdoors and the evenings are spent playing parlour games, doing jigsaws and pretending the dog hasn’t farted.
Suffice to say I had a memorable time – but relaxing as it is en famille, even when the family are the Royals, what we really wanted to do was to go on a beach holiday. Scotland means sweaters.

We chose Princess Margaret’s villa in Mustique because of the predictable – and worrisome – increase in press and public attention post Falklands, as well as increased security concerns.
In October, we flew British Airways under an alias reported at the time as Mr and Mrs Cambridge.

The plane stopped briefly in America to pick up some new passengers, including my mother who was joining our house party.
I’d spent some time with my boyfriend’s mother and now he was going to spend some time with mine. A normal chain of events.









Breaking her silence: Koo at home with her dog Dolly as she lifts the lid on her relationship with Andrew


It was probably the last time we could conduct anything approaching a ‘normal’ relationship.

Completely by chance, there was a Fleet Street photographer on the plane heading on holiday too.
His camera must have been in the hold because he was running up and down the aisle trying to buy one from his fellow passengers.
At this time there were no pictures of Andrew and I together in the public domain and, of course, it was long before the era of the smart phone and social media and citizen journalism.

Fortunately, no one would give the journalist a camera. I woke from a nap to find Andrew’s Royal detective had placed a blanket over my head and my boyfriend was sitting in the ****pit of the plane hidden from view.
Our romantic, home-from-the-war, reunion holiday had instantly become big news. Big news meant big money in the Eighties. And big money was as much a corrupting influence then as it is today.

Once we arrived at Les Jolies Eaux, I was almost under house arrest. It was a military operation just getting out to the private beach.
It was, however, a beautiful, airy place where we took our meals of fish and tropical fruit on the secluded terrace.
The paparazzi were flying over low in light aircraft or swimming up to the beach in scuba gear. There was a palpable sense of real physical danger. We didn’t know if the people coming at us were carrying a gun or a camera.

Actually, it was also an oddly happy time and gave rise to scenes so funny they still bear re-telling.

One involved an old friend John Hatt, for ten years the travel editor of Harper’s & Queen and founder of travel publisher Eland Books.
Hatt went to eavesdrop for us at the island’s famous Basil’s Bar, where journalists were busy trying to drink up a story.
He returned to the house via a dip in the sea off Princess Margaret’s beach where he removed his thick prescription glasses and placed them on his folded beach towel before venturing into the water.

Being very near-sighted without his spectacles, he almost swam into a large dark submerged body which he mistook for a spying paparazzi.
He was just inches from it when he realised it was a shark and had to punch it hard on the nose.

The blow stunned the fish which had been basking in the shallows and gave Hatt enough time to swim back to the beach to recuperate from the shock and to collect his thoughts and his glasses.

He wanted to run up to tell us of his amazing adventure and bravery in taking on what he thought was a paparazzi but assumed, correctly, that no one would believe him – so he grabbed a palm branch and waded back into the water to prod the shark to shore.

All the men in our house went down to the beach to inspect the kill which was then cooked and eaten. We felt a bit sorry for the shark and would rather have roasted a paparazzo.

The media thought we would crack under pressure and give them the trophy picture they wanted, or that I would cash in on my Royal relationship with a rollicking kiss’n’tell.

I turned down a written offer of £1 million from the News Of The World just to pose for a photograph and confirm that I was Prince Andrew’s girlfriend.
The harder they pushed, the more resistant I became.

What starts as sexual innuendo turns into a cruel joke, then quickly descends into a vicious verbal attack that leaves deep emotional scars.
To be publicly and falsely labelled as guilty of sexual misconduct is as wrong as flogging a woman for the crime of being raped.

It is fortuitous that I have had the spiritual guidance of his Holiness the Dalai Lama since 1990. Without it, I doubt I would have had the courage to speak out now.

But what I could never know, during that idyllic but eventful holiday, was how a film role I played years earlier was about to come back to haunt me... and change the course of my life, and my relationship with Andrew, for ever.

Hot EPSTEINs' Ghislaine Maxwell Denied $28.5m Bail in Sex Crime Case

Jeffrey Epstein's Paedo Island Raided by FBI as Probe into Billionaire's Death Goes On

The billionaire was found dead in the US last week while awaiting trial for sex trafficking charges

Daily Mirror UK, 14 Aug 2019.





FBI agents raid billionaire Jeffrey Epstein's US Virgin Island home - dubbed 'paedophile island' - in footage filmed by passing sailors.


A large group of FBI officers were seen disembarking speedboats at the pier of Little St James - and getting around on land with golf buggies.

Others were later seen overlooking the crystal blue sea from the top of Epstein's remote luxury home off the coast of St Thomas.

The 'FBI' lettering could clearly be seen on the back of their shirts during the raid, which started at around 10.30am local time on Monday.

Agents are seen at Little St James Island


An onlooker, who wanted to remain anonymous, said: "I'm on a boat charter with guests. We are the only guests out here at the moment.

"We were enjoying lunch when we saw over a dozen people getting off their speedboats and landing on the island.

"When we looked harder, we could see the FBI logo on the backs of their shirts.

"It didn't take long for us to realise they must be conducting a raid on Epstein's house."

The home - dubbed 'paedophile island' and 'orgy island' - is at the centre of an ongoing sex trafficking probe into the criminal financier.

Allegations have been made that underage girls were used as sex slaves and repeatedly abused inside a temple on the island.




The property has been dubbed 'paedophile island'


Epstein died on Saturday in a Manhattan correction facility having apparently hanged himself in his cell.

And last night it emerged the warden at the federal jail where he was found dead awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges has been removed.

US Attorney General William Barr ordered the removal after condemning "serious irregularities" at the facility.

The staff shakeup at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in lower Manhattan included temporarily reassigning the warden to another post within the federal Bureau of Prisons, appointing a temporary replacement and placing two corrections officers assigned to Epstein's unit on administrative leave pending the outcome of investigations.

Update re: PEDO Island Raided: Epstein's Psychologist Removed Him From Suicide Watch >Cover Up?

Appalled' Prince Andrew Breaks Silence Over Jeffrey Epstein Paedophile Scandal

Epstein, 66 - who mingled with an array of famous faces including Prince Andrew - hanged himself in his jail cell

Daily Mirror UK, 19 Aug 2019.



Prince Andrew says he's been "appalled by the recent reports of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged crimes," according to reports.

Paedo Epstein, 66 - who mingled with an array of famous faces including Prince Andrew - hanged himself in his jail cell last weekend.

A medical examiner confirmed his cause of death as suicide.

The Duke of York - who is widely known to have previously been friends with the disgraced paedophile billionaire - hasn't commented publicly about the matter, until now.

But in the wake of the jail cell suicide and mounting pressure, he tonight said he is “appalled" by the sex allegations against the convicted paedophile.

In a statement from Buckingham Palace, courtiers appeared to claim the Duke of York was unaware of the pervert’s crimes despite him maintaining a friendship before and after he was jailed for child sex offences.

“The Duke of York has been appalled by the recent reports of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged crimes,” the Palace said.

“His Royal Highness deplores the exploitation of any human being and the suggestion he would condone, participate in or encourage any such behaviour is abhorrent.”

The statement is in stark contrast to reports at the time Andrew was pictured with Epstein in Central Park in 2010 following Epstein’s release from prison.

Vanity Fair quoted a friend of the Duke who claims they spoke directly to the Prince.

He allegedly became incensed after being told he could no longer be friends with the sex offender.

It quoted a friend saying: "After Jeffrey was convicted, I phoned Andrew and told him, 'You cannot have a relationship with Jeffrey. You can't do these things.' And he said, 'Stop giving me a hard time. You're such a puritan.'

"From there, our conversation descended into a screaming match, and finally Andrew said, 'Leave me alone. Jeffrey's my friend. Being loyal to your friends is a virtue. And I'm going to be loyal to him.'"

Epstein, who was arrested on July 6, had pleaded not guilty to charges of sex trafficking involving dozens of underage girls as young as 14, from at least 2002 to 2005.

He previously admitted prostituting minors in 2008 and spent 18 months in prison after agreeing a plea bargain.

In legal documents, released before last weekend, he is said to have had scores of schoolgirls come to his mansion and give him 'massages' which turned sexual.

The disgraced multimillionaire, who never married or had children, is also claimed to have needed 'three orgasms a day' and when one woman didn't make him orgasm she would allegedly be punished.

He also reportedly had a penchant for 'threesomes with underage girls,' it is claimed, and hired people to "recruit high school-aged girls" for him.

Wealthy and well-connected money manager Epstein was found unresponsive last Saturday morning at Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, New York, where he was being held on sex trafficking charges.

He suffered multiple fractures in his neck bones and was pronounced dead in hospital.

His suicide came hours after hundreds of pages of court documents were unsealed alleging new details of sexual abuse claims against him.

Update Re: PEDO Island Raided: Epstein's Psychologist Removed Him From Suicide Watch >Cover

Jeffrey Epstein: Psychologist Approved Paedophile's Removal From Suicide Watch > Was That an Arranged Strategic Move to PROTECT Certain Powerful People?

The disgraced financier had been on suicide watch in a New York detention center in July, weeks before his death on August 10

Daily Mirror UK, 25 Aug 2019.


A psychologist approved billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein's removal from suicide watch before he killed himself, the US Justice Department has revealed.

Epstein was being held at a federal detention center in New York City on sex-trafficking charges when he was found dead on August 10. An autopsy concluded he hanged himself.

A letter from US from Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd confirmed Epstein had been placed on suicide watch at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan in July.

It meant he was held in a special cell under constant observation by staff or "inmate companions".

Epstein was "later removed from suicide watch after being evaluated by a doctoral-level psychologist who determined that a suicide watch was no longer warranted," Boyd wrote.

At the MCC, two jail guards are required to make separate checks on all prisoners every 30 minutes, but that procedure was not followed overnight, a source told Reuters.

The disclosures came in a letter dated on Thursday and addressed to the leaders of the Judiciary Committee of the US House of Representatives, seeking details about the circumstances surrounding Epstein's death.

His death triggered investigations by the FBI, the Justice Department's Office of Inspector General and the US Bureau of Prisons, which runs the detention facility.

In July, Epstein had been found unconscious on the floor of his jail cell with marks on his neck, before his death... officials were investigating that incident as a possible suicide attempt or assault.

Prince Andrew Must be Probed by Police over TV Interview Sex Claims, Ex-Top Cop Says

EXCLUSIVE: Former royal protection officer Dai Davies said Prince Andrews answers during his car-crash Newsnight interview were "utterly unconvincing" and "beggar belief"


Daily Mirror UK, 19 NOV 2019.




Former royal protection officer Dai Davies


A former royal protection officer has called for a police probe into prince Andrew after his TV interview on sex claims.

Dai Davies said he was “utterly unconvinced” by the duke’s denial that he slept with a teenager. He added: “It beggars belief the stupidity of his answers.”

Mr Davies also said the Duke of York displayed “classic signs” of someone not telling the truth.

Mr Davies called for a police investigation into the royal’s friendship with Jeffrey Epstein and allegations the paedophile provided sex slaves to his rich pals.

He spoke as it was revealed Prince Charles, who was not given prior notice of his younger brother’s interview, told *advisers he believes Andrew, 59, has made “a huge miscalculation”.

The founder of a child protection charity also warned the prince’s refusal to acknowledge the suffering of Epstein’s young victims during his rambling TV chat meant his role as a patron for *anti-grooming projects was discredited.

And US sources said the FBI is preparing to analyse Andrew’s interview as part of their probe into Epstein’s circle.

Mr Davies, who led a team of 450 Met officers protecting senior royals, said of the duke’s appearance on the BBC’s Newsnight with Emily Maitlis on Saturday:

“It beggars belief the stupidity of his answers.

"I couldn’t believe what I was hearing and seeing. This *interview *highlights why there should now be a full police *investigation into these *allegations.

"There are *significant *differences between the account of events given by Andrew and others. He is a primary witness and these *allegations of sexual trafficking are extremely serious.

“Anyone who has material evidence should be *interviewed. If that points towards a criminal offence having been committed then that *questioning should be done under caution.”


Virginia Giuffre claimed Andrew had sex with her three times in 2001, once after meeting him at Tramp club in London when she was just 17


In the prince’s interview, he claimed he could not have slept with her as he was at a Pizza Express birthday party in Woking, Surrey, with his daughter at around “four or five in the afternoon”.

But Mr Davies, who was Head of Royal *Protection until 1998, said: “That alibi came as a surprise to put it mildly.

“That party was in the afternoon. The [Virginia] *allegation arises in the early hours of the morning. It’s got no relevance.

"I was utterly *unconvinced by his story. I have *interviewed hundreds of people. To me he shows the classic signs of someone not telling the truth.”

Virginia also claimed the prince was sweaty, during dancing but in the interview Andrew claimed he had a condition brought on by an overdose of adrenaline after being shot at in the Falklands War which left him unable to perspire.

But Professor John Hawk, a *dermatologist at St Thomas’ hospital in London, said: “It is certainly possible to have problems with sweating, but an overdose of *adrenaline would likely to make a person sweat more, not less.”

The MoD was asked if it knew of any other service personnel who lost the ability to sweat after being fired at, but it refused to comment.

The Queen’s former press secretary Dickie Arbiter accused Andrew of living in “cuckoo land” if he believed going public with his side of the story would help.

He said: “Who made the decision to put him on? Did he make it himself or did he seek advice within the Palace?

“My guess is that he bulldozed his way in and decided he was going to do it himself without any advice.”

A Palace source said Andrew’s TV chat would “go down as one of the single worst PR moves in recent history”.

And another described it as described his *performance as “utterly jaw-dropping”

Royal expert Ingrid Seward said: “Sadly there seems to be nothing *positive whatsoever to come out of it.”

The prince’s PR, Jason Stein - hired in September to begin reviving the royal’s reputation – quit after warning against giving the interview.

Andrew also claimed in the programme “hug and public displays of affection are not something that I do” after being quizzed about a picture of him and Virginia in 2001, which he suggested is doctored.




The playboy prince slow dancing in St Tropez with a mystery woman



But several pictures have emerged of him embracing women while out. In one, he was snapped dancing with US interior designer Chris Von Aspen.

The prince also insisted he has never met Virginia. But her lawyer David Boies said of the 2001 photo: “He’s had that picture for years and years and never once questioned it. If he had not been there, I think he would have said that years ago.”

Agents in New York are looking at Virginia’s claims.

And a source said of the *Newsnight chat: “The recording is of significant interest to the FBI. This is the first time he has spoken about his role in Epstein’s life.

“At the very least agents see Prince Andrew as a material witness to the life of not only of Epstein but his alleged fixer Ghislaine Maxwell.”

British socialite Maxwell has been accused of acting as Epstein’s “madam”, recruiting girls for his network of sex slaves. She vehemently denies any wrongdoing and has never been charged with any crime.

Lawyer Anna Rothwell said Andrew “would not be entitled to any form of immunity” if he is grilled by the FBI.

Freedom From Abuse founder Marilyn Hawes described Andrew’s interview as “sickening”.

She said: “It was all about him. He did not show any revulsion at what Epstein did. I think he has made it worse.”

Andrew’s charity partners include Women’s Interlink Foundation, which combats abuse, trafficking and p*rostitution in India.

Andrew denies any wrongdoing in connection with Virginia and Epstein.

The Met reviewed the evidence and decided not to conduct a “full *investigation” into Virginia’s *allegations that she was trafficked to London in 2001 as part of Epstein’s “sex ring.” The matter was then closed.

Prince Andrew's Bombshell 5.50am Email to Epstein 'Madam' about Sex Accuser


Prince Andrew asked his socialite pal Ghislaine Maxwell for information on one of Jeffrey Epstein's alleged victims, Virginia Giuffre, who accused the royal of having sex with her when she was 17

Daily Mirror UK, 3 DEC 2019...


Prince Andrew emailed his paedophile pal’s alleged “madam” Ghislaine Maxwell for information on his sex accuser after Buckingham Palace was told she was going to speak.

The duke, had been approached for comment on January 2, 2015, as Virginia Giuffre – previously known as Roberts – was due to claim she had been lent out to the royal by his friend Jeffrey Epstein.

The prince has “categorically” denied any sexual contact with Ms Giuffre.

At 5.50am the following day, Andrew emailed his friend, Maxwell, 57, asking: “Let me know when we can talk. Got some specific questions to ask you about Virginia Roberts.”

Mrs Giuffre appeared on BBC Panorama last night (Image: PA)


The email was sent hours before Epstein’s alleged teen sex slave appeared on a US website claiming she was forced to have sex with Andrew three times.

Details of the email – which was submitted in evidence as part of a civil investigation into Epstein’s offending –came out as Panorama last night broadcast its one-hour programme titled The Prince and the Epstein Scandal which piled further pressure on the duke.

The BBC discovered that lawyers for five of Epstein’s victims want Andrew, 59, to provide testimony in court following the billionaire’s suicide in August.

The Wall Street financier had been awaiting trial for underage sex trafficking. He was convicted of procuring a minor for prostitution in 2008 and sentenced to 18 months in prison.

The email was sent in 2015 (Image: PA)


Pre-trial witness subpoenas, which would need signing by a judge, have been prepared for all five cases and could be served on the Prince if he were ever to return to the States.

Andrew refuted her allegations, most recently when he appeared on Newsnight three weeks ago, but Giuffre labelled his denials as “bull****”.

The duke was photographed with his arm around her at Maxwell’s London house in March 2001. He cast doubt over the image, saying he had no memory of it being taken.

In response, Giuffre said: “He knows what happened, I know what happened. There’s only one of us telling the truth and that’s me.”

During the programme, Giuffre alleged she was brought to London by Epstein, introduced to Andrew and taken to Tramp nightclub. She said: “It was horrible, this guy was sweating all over me, I was grossed out from it.

"But I knew I had to keep him happy because that’s what Jeffrey and Ghislaine expected.”


Andrew has claimed he had a medical condition after suffering an overdose of adrenaline in the Falklands when he was shot at, which meant he did not sweat.

When they had left the club, Giuffre said Maxwell – Andrew’s pal and Epstein’s then-girlfriend – gave her instructions, she said:

“In the car, Ghislaine tells me that ‘I have to do for Andrew what I do for Jeffrey’ and that just made me sick.”

She said that later that evening, she had sex with Andrew upstairs at Maxwell’s house in Belgravia.

Giuffre called on the British people to join her fight for justice. She said: “I implore the people in the UK to stand up beside me, to help me fight this fight. This is not some sordid sex story. This is a story of being trafficked, this is a story of abuse.”
Another victim, Sarah Ransome, alleged that Maxwell was the “nuts and bolts of the sex-trafficking operation” carried out by Epstein, saying “she was like the madam”.

Allegations against her were first made public in court documents in 2009 but Andrew maintained their friendship.


The pair once attended Royal Ascot together with Epstein.


Last night Maxwell could not be reached for comment but she has previously denied any involvement in or knowledge of Mr Epstein’s abuse.

A palace spokesman said: “It is emphatically denied that the Duke of York had any form of sexual contact or relationship with Virginia Roberts. Any claim to the contrary is false.”

Who Killed Jeffrey Epstein? NEW Docu....

A new documentary exploring the death of convicted sex abuser and financier Jeffrey Epstein set to air;

2020-05-25. Who Killed Jeffrey Epstein 2020 Part 1
2020-06-01. Who Killed Jeffrey Epstein 2020 Part 2
2020-06-01. Who Killed Jeffrey Epstein 2020 Part 3

Evening Standard 6 JUNE 2020


Epstein was found unresponsive in his prison cell on August 10 last year and later died. He was awaiting trial on trafficking charges. A coroner ruled the death a suicide.

But some people have argued that the circumstances of his passing were suspicious - and have drawn attention to Epstein's links with numerous high-profile figures including Bill and Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and Prince Andrew.

Others have rubbished claims of foul play.

Bill Mersey, a prison counsellor to Epstein at the time of his death, said: "There's no way somebody got in there and killed him. Do you know how many people you'd have to pay off to get in there and kill him? There's just no way.

"To all the conspiracy theorists out there about Jeffrey Epstein's suicide vs murder, this is what I say: you're the same guys who think that the moon landing was fake. Don't be ridiculous. Get over it, he killed himself. There's no question about it in my mind. Case closed for me."

The documentary, which will be broadcast on Quest Red in the UK, explores the different claims around Epstein's death.

The programme also contains an allegation that Epstein changed his will late in his life, as a final "F-you" to his victims in order to delay any payouts.


Journalist Thomas Volscho said: "Epstein, 48 hours prior to him killing himself, if that's what happened, refiles and changes his will to be collapsed into a trust in the Virgin Islands."

"People in the Virgin Islands that are older, their lawyers advise them 'don't file your estate or your will or your probate in the Virgin Islands, file them in the mainland,' because it'll take nine, ten years before people in your will see any of the benefits of that.

"So, this will make it very difficult for victims to get any type of restitution from his estate," he added.

Update Re: US Asks UK Hand Over Prince Andrew to Appear in Epstein Court Hearing

US Requests UK Hands Over Prince Andrew to Appear in Court Over Jeffrey Epstein Links

The US Department of Justice has allegedly approached the Home Office requesting that Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, answers questions over his links to paedophile Jeffrey Epstein


Daily Mirror UK, 8 JUN 2020


American investigators probing Prince Andrew's paedophile pal Jeffrey Epstein have formally requested the Duke of York be handed over to give evidence.

The U.S. Department of Justice made a formal ''Mutual Legal Assistance'' (MLA) request to the Home Office bypassing Buckingham Palace.

The MLA allows cooperation between the U.S. and the U.K. when evidence needs to be gathered in a prosecution or investigation of criminal offences.

If approved by the Home Office, the FBI could ask Andrew, 60, to be compelled to go to a British court to give evidence under oath as a witness if he refused to cooperate.

It would be up to the judge in the U.K. to decide if the hearing was in open court.

If U.S. prosecutors wanted to extradite Andrew, they would have to obtain an arrest warrant or a grand jury indictment to make a request to the U.K.

However, such a move has been complicated after America's State Department refused an extradition request for ex CIA spy Anne Sacoolas, who fled Britain using diplomatic immunity after being accused of killing teen motorbiker Harry Dunn....

Harry Dunn Family to Prosecute UK Foreign Secretary & Interpol Issues RED Notice


So far Andrew has allegedly refused to be quizzed by New York prosecutors and lawyers representing Epstein's victims although he vehemently denies any wrongdoing.

He has been accused by the late paedophile's former teen ''sex slave'' Virginia Giuffre of having slept with her three times when show 17, a claim he refutes.


Although Andrew spent time with Epstein, who committed suicide last August while awaiting trial for underage sex trafficking, he has also denied witnessing any suspicious behaviour by Epstein.





Tonight it was claimed no decision had been made yet over the American's request which was filed last month.

If the application is successful, the Duke would either be asked to voluntarily attend an interview and give a signed statement although not be under oath or appear at magistrates in London to provide oral or written evidence on oath.

If the Duke refuses, he could be forced to attend in person by summons, where U.S. lawyers would then able to question to him.

Unlike the Queen, father-of-two Andrew does not hold sovereign immunity from prosecution.

The Home Office told the Mirror: "As a matter of long-standing policy and practice, we neither confirm nor deny the existence of mutual legal assistance requests."

In January, the head of the ongoing criminal probe into Epstein and his enablers, U.S. prosecutor Geoffrey Berman, claimed Andrew has refused to help an FBI investigation.

In an excoriating attack, he said: "It's fair for people to know whether Prince Andrew has followed through with that public commitment.

"To date, Prince Andrew has provided zero cooperation."

A few days later the Duke was reported to be "angry and bewildered" at the claims by the U.S. authorities.

The Prince heaped shame on the royal family due to his ties with Epstein.

After a decade long friendship, the two men were pictured walking in Central Park, New York, in 2010 just months after the paedophile was released from prison for procuring a minor for prostitution.

It later emerged the Duke had flown on the convicted sex offender's private jet while also enjoying the Wall Street financier's lavish hospitality at the American's homes around the world.

Following Epstein's death, U.S. Attorney General William Barr warned his alleged co-conspirators they "should not rest easy".

He promised the billionaire's helpers would be the focus of the criminal investigation and brought to justice despite Epstein's suicide.


He vowed: "Let me assure you that this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy."The victims deserve justice, and they will get it."

(....... Years ago
Barr's Father gave Epstein a job at his very exclusive Prep school when he was broke. Barr, Trump & Epstein have been friends for many years.. In April 2020, the Federal Appeals Court upheld a decision that would prevent victims taking any further action against Epsteins helpers)


As a result of the controversy, Andrew stepped down from royal duties last year.

Tonight, lawyer's for Prince Andrew's declined to comment.

But a source close to the Duke’s legal team told the Mirror: “Legal discussions with the DOJ are subject to strict confidentiality rules, as set out in their own guidelines.

"We have chosen to abide by both the letter and the spirit of these rules, which is why we have made no comment about anything related to the DOJ during the course of this year. We believe in playing a straight bat.”

Prince Andrew Issues Scathing Statement Accusing US of 'Breaching His Confidentiality'

The Duke of York has slammed the US Department of Justice after it approached the Home Office requesting he answer questions over his links to paedophile Jeffrey Epstein


"The Duke of York has on at least three occasions this yearoffered his assistance as a witness to the DOJ.

The Duke of York's legal team today accused the American authorities, of dragging him into the spotlight in order to gain publicity for the investigation

Daily Mirror UK, 8 JUN 2020


Prince Andrew has broken his silence with a scathing statement after United States authorities demanded he appears in court.

His lawyers have accused the investigators probing Jeffrey Epstein of 'breaching' the royal's confidentiality via public statements on the case.

The US Department of Justice (DOJ) approached the Home Office requesting the royal answers questions over his links to Epstein.

The Duke of York's legal team today slammed the American authorities, accusing them of dragging him into the spotlight in order to gain publicity for the investigation into the billionaire paedophile.

Andrew's lawyers issued the 'clarifying' statement today on his behalf saying the Duke has not, nor has ever been a target of the DOJ investigation into Epstein.

In the statement, the lawyers also claim the royal had not shunned bids to assist with the inquiry - saying he had offered to help US officials at least three times during their ongoing investigation.

The statement released today said: "Importantly, the DOJ advised us that the duke is not and has never been a 'target' of their criminal investigations into Epstein and that they sought his confidential, voluntary cooperation.

"In the course of these discussions, we asked the DOJ to confirm that our co-operation and any interview arrangements would remain confidential, in accordance with the ordinary rules that apply to voluntary co-operation with the DOJ.

"We were given an unequivocal assurance that our discussions and the interview process would remain confidential.

"The Duke of York has on at least three occasions this year offered his assistance as a witness to the DOJ.

"Unfortunately, the DOJ has reacted to the first two offers by breaching their own confidentiality rules and claiming that the Duke has offered zero co-operation.

"In doing so, they are perhaps seeking publicity rather than accepting the assistance proffered. "

As part of the formal 'Mutual Legal Assistance' request (MLA), American and British authorities can cooperate when evidence needs to be gathered in a prosecution or investigation of criminal offences.

If approved by the Home Office, the FBI could ask Andrew, 60, to be compelled to go to a British court to give evidence under oath as a witness if he refused to cooperate.

It would be up to the judge in the UK to decide if the hearing was in open court.

If US prosecutors wanted to extradite Andrew, they would have to obtain an arrest warrant or a grand jury indictment to make a request to the UK.

However, such a move has been complicated after America's State Department refused an extradition request for ex CIA spy Anne Sacoolas, who fled Britain using diplomatic immunity after being accused of killing teen motorbiker Harry Dunn.

Update re: Fox News Cut TRUMP Out of EPSTEIN & Maxwell Photo+She Sits on Queen's Throne

BRIEF-U.S. Announces Indictment of Ghislaine Maxwell, a Former Confidante of Jeffrey Epstein

The FBI has arrested British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, an ex-girlfriend of the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.

By Reuters / BBC News 2 JUl. 2020.





July 2 (Reuters) -

U.S. Unseals indictment against Ghislaine Maxwell, a former confidante of late financier Jeffrey Epstein --


Court Filing

Maxwell is charged in a six-count indictment Maxwell is charged with conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts

Maxwell is charged with enticing a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts

Maxwell is charged with conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity

Maxwell is charged with transporting a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity

Maxwell is charged with four counts of perjury


-Says Maxwell perjured herself when asked if Epstein schemed to recruit underage girls for sexual massages, and she answered 'I don't know what you're talking about'

-Says Maxwell perjured herself in saying she was unaware of anyone under age 18, other than one plaintiff, she interacted with at Epstein's properties

-Says Maxwell perjured herself when she said she was unaware Epstein was having sexual activities with anyone, other than her and two other people, while she was with him

Says Maxwell perjured herself when she said she never gave anyone, including Epstein, a massage


---------------------

She was reportedly arrested in New Hampshire on charges related to Epstein and is due in federal court later.

She has denied any involvement in or knowledge of Epstein's alleged sexual misconduct.

Epstein died in prison on 10 August as he awaited, without the chance of bail, his trial on sex trafficking charges.

He was arrested last year in New York following allegations that he was running a network of underage girls - some as young as 14 - for sex. His death was determined to be suicide.

Some of Epstein's alleged victims say Ms Maxwell brought them into his circle to be sexually abused by him and his friends.

One of Epstein's alleged victims, Virginia Giuffre, has accused Ms Maxwell of recruiting her as a masseuse to the financier at the age of 15.

Details of that allegation against Ms Maxwell emerged in documents unsealed by a US judge last August in a 2015 defamation case.

Ms Maxwell denies wrongdoing.

Earlier this year Ms Maxwell sued Epstein's estate seeking reimbursement for legal fees and security costs. She "receives regular threats to her life and safety", court documents in that case said.

Ghislaine Maxwell Appears in Court Charged with Grooming Girls for Jeffrey Epstein

The British socialite, Ghislaine Maxwell, has appeared in court in America, just hours after she was arrested by the FBI.


BBC News 2 JUl. 2020.

The 58-year-old has been charged with grooming girls for her former boyfriend, the convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, and repeatedly lying about it.

Prosecutors claim that Ghislaine Maxwell helped Epstein to exploit underage girls, some of them as young as 14. In some cases they say she took part in abuse herself.

Ghislaine Maxwell had not been seen in public since Epstein died in prison last August. The FBI said she had been “lying low” in New Hampshire since December.

Ms Maxwell has denied any wrongdoing as well as any knowledge of Epstein's crimes.

Prosecutors have again spoken of their wish to speak to Prince Andrew, a long-term friend of Ghislaine Maxwell and former friend of Jeffrey Epstein

Sophie Raworth presents BBC News at Ten reporting from Nada Tawfik is in New York and Royal Correspondent Nicholas Witchell.

Ghislaine Maxwell Sits on Queen's Throne with Kevin Spacey After Prince Andrew Invite

British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell and actor Kevin Spacey are pictured smiling in red velvet thrones at Buckingham Palace during a private tour reportedly organised by Prince Andrew for former US president Bill Clinton


Daily Mail UK, 5 JUl. 2020




Ghislaine Maxwell and Kevin Spacey sit in thrones belonging to the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh


Smirking socialite Ghislaine Maxwell sat on the Queen's throne next to actor Kevin Spacey during a tour of Buckingham Palace.

A photo has emerged showing Maxwell reclining in a mock royal pose in a ceremonial red velvet chair as Spacey smiles and waves while "pretending to be the Duke of Edinburgh".

It is said the picture was taken in 2002 when the pair were on a private tour of the central London palace organised by Prince Andrew for former US president Bill Clinton.

It emerged after Maxwell, 58, was arrested by the FBI in the US town of Bradford, New Hampshire, on Thursday over allegations she helped paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, her former boyfriend, "identify, befriend and groom" girls, including one as young as 14.

Buckingham Palace declined to comment.

It is not thought that disgraced financier Epstein - Andrew's one-time friend - was on the tour when the picture was taken, reported the Telegraph, the newspaper that obtained the image.

It is said Spacey - the House of Cards actor accused but never convicted of multiple sexual offences - was Clinton's guest and Maxwell was invited by Andrew.

A source claimed:

“They were larking about on the thrones, doing regal waves.

“Ghislaine sat on the Queen’s throne with Spacey pretending to be the Duke of Edinburgh.

"No one can recall if Andrew was in the throne room at the time but he was in charge of the visit.”





Andrew has been urged to speak to US investigators (Image: Getty Images)


Maxwell is accused of grooming young girls for her paedophile partner Epstein

It is thought the picture was taken after Clinton arrived in London in September 2002 on his way to a Labour Party conference in Blackpool, where he was the guest of honour.

Spacey travelled with him to Blackpool. The pair visited Africa with Epstein on his private jet before arriving in the UK.

Epstein has previously visited Sandringham and Windsor Castle along with Maxwell as a guest of Andrew.

Maxwell was also on the flight to Africa, part of a humanitarian trip for the Clinton Foundation.

Andrew, 60, has been urged to provide information in relation to the investigation after his friend Maxwell appeared in court accused of facilitating Epstein's sexual exploitation of underage girls.

He has repeatedly denied claims that he had sex on three occasions with one of Epstein's chief accusers, Virginia Giuffre, including when she was 17.

Audrey Strauss, acting US attorney for the southern district of New York, told reporters on Thursday that authorities would "welcome" a statement from the duke.

But a source close to Andrew said: "The duke's team remains bewildered given that we have twice communicated with the Department of Justice (DOJ) in the last month and to date we have had no response."

Lawyers for some of Epstein's alleged victims added pressure on Andrew to speak about his friendship with Epstein, who took his own life in a New York prison last year while awaiting trial on sex trafficking and conspiracy charges.

Spencer Coogan said his clients were "relieved" that Maxwell, daughter of late disgraced media mogul Robert Maxwell, had finally been arrested and urged Andrew to speak up about what he witnessed while visiting Epstein's properties in New York, Palm Beach and the Virgin Islands.

British victims of Epstein, who died aged 66, have yet to come forward, a US lawyer for a compensation fund has said.

US lawyer Jordana Feldman, architect of the programme, encouraged more British women to come forward.

She said: "We believe there are victims yet to come forward around the world, including in the UK."

At a brief hearing on Thursday, a magistrate judge ordered Maxwell to remain in custody while she is transferred to New York for a detention hearing.

Ms Strauss claimed that the socialite had helped Epstein to exploit underage girls and "in some cases" would participate in the abuse herself.

Four of the six charges cover Maxwell's dealings with Epstein from 1994 to 1997, when she was in an "intimate relationship" with him, according to the indictment.

These include conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts and enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts.

She is further charged with conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity and transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.


According to the indictment, three unnamed minors were allegedly "induced and enticed" by Maxwell, who "facilitated" for them to be groomed by Esptein at properties he owned.

These include residences in New York City, Palm Beach in Florida and Santa Fe in New Mexico, as well as Maxwell's personal residence in London, prosecutors allege.



The court papers claim that Maxwell "developed a rapport" with the alleged victims, before encouraging them to give massages to Epstein, which often resulted in him sexually abusing the girls.

One of the girls was allegedly groomed and abused in London between 1994 and 1995, with prosecutors claiming this included a period of time when Maxwell knew she was under the age of 18.

Authorities also claim that Maxwell, who is also charged with two counts of perjury, lied when being questioned under oath in 2016.

She has previously denied any wrongdoing or knowledge of sexual misconduct by Epstein.

One of his alleged victims, Ms Giuffre (nee Roberts), claims she had sex with the duke at the socialite's London townhouse in 2001.

Maxwell, who has known Andrew since university and introduced him to Epstein, features in the background of a picture which apparently shows the duke with his arm around a teenage Ms Giuffre, now 36 and living in Australia.

Ms Giuffre, who grew up in Florida, has claimed she was trafficked by Epstein and alleges the duke had sex with her on three separate occasions, including when she was 17, still a minor under US law.

Andrew categorically denies he had any form of sexual contact or relationship with Ms Giuffre, while his lawyers have insisted the duke has repeatedly offered to provide a witness statement to the investigation.

How FBI Agents Almost Bungled £4m Covert Operation to Capture Ghislaine Maxwell

EXCLUSIVE: Armed agents were all set to storm the British socialite’s New Hampshire hideout after a year-long hunt – when a man annoyed by the sound of planes circling overhead went to complain..

Lawyer says Ghislaine Maxwell 'knows too much' and won't get out of jail alive


Daily Mail UK, 7 JUL 2020


FBI agents almost blew their covert £4million operation to capture Ghislaine Maxwell when a lie to locals near her home backfired.

Armed agents were all set to storm the British socialite’s New Hampshire hideout after a year-long hunt – when a man annoyed by the sound of planes circling overhead went to complain.


One local said: “The planes had been buzzing around since 5am. They were a nuisance. We began calling each other to find out what the noise was about. Finally one snapped and drove down to where the vehicles were lined up.

“He demanded to know who they were and they replied they were from the New England Aerial map society – it was totally fictitious. The problem the FBI had was that the guy is an expert in maps and geology. It’s what he does for a living.

“He saw straight through it and asked to see inside their van but was harshly told it was off-limits. He told his wife, and she called the police on the FBI. It was hilarious.”







The words "Tucked Away" sit at the end of a driveway to the property where Ghislaine Maxwell may have been arrested


The FBI arrested Maxwell, 58, last week on sex trafficking charges in connection with former boyfriend, paedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Yesterday, she remained in the Merrimack County Department of Corrections in Boscawen, New Hampshire, ahead of her transfer to New York later this week.

Maxwell had hidden in Colorado, Wyoming and then Massachusetts before buying a £860,000 156-acre home – called Tuckedaway – in Bradford, New Hampshire, for cash.

Neighbours wanted to know what the noise was about and didn't buy the FBI's cover

Last Thursday it was stormed by 24 armed FBI agents who cut through padlocks on gates and broke down her door.

Stunned Maxwell was dressed in jogging bottoms and a T-shirt when handcuffed. A close friend of Prince Andrew, she is charged with grooming three girls under 18, but has denied any wrongdoing. She faces up to 35 years if convicted.

Prosecutors claim she took part in the sexual abuse carried out by Epstein and encouraged girls to meet the financier and engage in sex acts with him.

She is also accused of lying in 2016 depositions while being sued by victim Virginia Giuffre that she had never groomed or had sex with underage girls.

Her arrest has increased pressure on the Prince, 60, to speak to the FBI.

Giuffre accused Andrew of sleeping with her three times in 2001 while she was Epstein’s “teenage sex slave”.

The Prince vehemently denies her claims.

Over the weekend, pictures emerged of Maxwell and actor Kevin Spacey sitting on thrones at Buckingham Palace in 2002.

Epstein committed suicide aged 66 last August as he awaited trial for underage sex trafficking.

Update re: EPSTEIN Case Judges' Son Shot Dead & Husband Attacked

Fox News Apologises for Cropping Trump out of Epstein and Maxwell Photo

Network says it mistakenly eliminated Donald Trump from photo with Maxwell and Epstein at Mar-a-Lago in February 2000


The Guardian UK, 8 JUL 2020

Fox News has apologised for cropping Donald Trump out of a picture of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.

'Where are you Roger Ailes?' Trump asked dead Fox News chairman for help


Epstein, a financier with influential connections including Trump, Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew, killed himself in prison in New York last year, while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.

Maxwell, a British socialite, was arrested last week in New Hampshire for her alleged role in recruiting, grooming and sexually abusing underaged girls with Epstein. Detained in Brooklyn, she is due in court in New York this week.

The full picture used by Fox News on Sunday – and widely elsewhere – shows Maxwell and Epstein with Donald Trump and his wife Melania (then his girlfriend) at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida in February 2000.

In a statement about its interview with an attorney representing victims of Epstein, Fox News said: “On Sunday, 5 July, a report on Ghislaine Maxwell during Fox News Channel’s America’s News HQ mistakenly eliminated President Donald Trump from a photo alongside then Melania Knauss, Jeffrey Epstein and Maxwell.

“We regret the error.”

It is not clear if Trump saw the segment in question.

On Sunday, speaking to CBS, former national security adviser John Bolton criticised the president for the amount of time he spends “in the little dining room off the Oval Office with the cable news networks in one form or another on”, versus “the amount of time he spends actually in the Oval Office”.

The president spent Sunday at his golf club in Virginia. But he did return to the White House to tweet complaints about Fox News’s weekend coverage.

Fox News’s decision to crop Trump out of an Epstein picture – and subsequent expression of regret – echoed a decision by Trump’s son Eric Trump to tweet a picture of Maxwell attending Chelsea Clinton’s wedding.

“Birds of a feather,” Eric Trump wrote, accompanying a picture of Maxwell watching former president Clinton walk his daughter up the aisle.

After many observers pointed to numerous pictures and videos of Eric Trump’s father with Epstein, the tweet was deleted.


Observers also shared a New Yorker profile of Donald Trump from 1997, which described Maxwell “bumming a ride” to Mar-a-Lago on Trump’s private plane, on which Eric Trump, then 13, was also a passenger.

“Eric Trump, who tweeted earlier about Bill Clinton and Ghislaine Maxwell, was literally himself on his dad’s private jet with her,” wrote the journalist Mehdi Hasan. “FFS. You cannot make this stuff up.”

Ghislaine Maxwell Refused Bail as She Denies Helping Jeffrey Epstein Abuse Girls

Maxwell is held in SOLITARY CONFINEMENT with lights on 24hrs per day. Her trial will continue in 2021


BBC News 14 JUL 2020







Courtroom sketches of Ghislaine Maxwell, who appeared in court via video link




Ghislaine Maxwell has been refused bail after pleading not guilty to charges that she helped Jeffrey Epstein abuse underage girls.


The former girlfriend of the late American financier and convicted paedophile appeared in court in New York.

The judge accepted the argument of prosecutors that the 58-year-old should remain in custody because there was a significant risk that she would flee the United States.

Update re: EPSTEIN Case Judges' Son Shot Dead & Husband Attacked

'Husband' of Ghislaine Maxwell Told Parents He was Dating High Profile Woman

A source close to businessman Scott Borgerson, who is rumoured to be married to alleged sex trafficker Maxwell, claims he told his parents he was dating 'a model or something'

Daily Mirror UK, 19 JUL 2020


A businessman rumoured to have married Ghislaine Maxwell boasted that he was dating a "high profile woman", it is claimed.

A family friend claimed Scott Borgerson had led his family to believe he was dating "a model or something".

But Borgerson's family say they have no knowledge of him marrying alleged sex trafficker Maxwell, the ex-girlfriend of convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

There is no suggestion Borgerson is in any way linked to the allegations Maxwell faces.

Prosecutors revealed that Maxwell was married, but did not name her husband in a hearing last week.

Tech entrepreneur Borgerson, 43, is said to have left his wife in 2014 for Maxwell.

A source told The Sun that the businessman had talked to his parents about his new partner, but hadn't given much away.

They said: "I don’t think he told them of her background or what she’d been accused of.

“I just know he described her as a high profile woman - I thought she was a model or something."

The source continued: “I’ve been out of the Borgerson family circle for some years, so I don’t know if they got married.”

But Borgerson's dad Chris, who is not thought to be on speaking terms with him any longer, told The Sun he was not aware of his son tying the knot.

He said he had "no clue" what was going on.

Maxwell, who faces a string of child sex abuse charges, is in custody at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The 58-year-old Brit faces six criminal charges, including four related to transporting minors for illegal sexual acts between 1994 and 1997, and two for perjury in depositions about her role in Epstein's abuses.

In Friday's filing, Maxwell said she "vigorously denies the charges" and intends to fight them.

Her arraignment was on July 14, and prosecutors want her detained until trial.

Maxwell's proposed bail package includes a $5 million bond, the surrender of her passports, "stringent" travel restrictions, and home detention with electronic monitoring.

She said she will continue needing security guards to ensure her safety.

Maxwell also maintained she is not a flight risk, claiming to have remained in the United States since Epstein's arrest.

Mirror Online has contacted representatives for Borgerson for comment.

Prime Suspect Kills Himself After Son of Epstein Case Judge is Shot Dead & Her Husband Attacked

District court judge Esther Salas was downstairs in her basement at home in North Brunswick, New Jersey when a shooter dressed as a delivery driver killed her son and attacked her husband


Daily Mirror UK, 22 JUL 2020


The son of a judge who presided over one of Jeffrey Epstein's court cases has died and an "anti-feminist" attorney is the prime suspect in the killing.

A gunman dressed as a FedEx delivery driver came to the home of district court judge Esther Salas, 51, on Sunday evening.

Her son Daniel Anderl, 20, was killed in the attack and her defense attorney husband Mark Anderl, 63, was critically injured.

Roy Den Hollander, the suspect in the shooting, later died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, CNN reported.

Den Hollander was an attorney who once argued a case before Judge Salas and had trashed her in a self-published book he wrote this year.

He was diagnosed with terminal cancer and had described himself as an "anti-feminist" lawyer who defends "men's rights."

The horrifying shooting is believe to have unfolded after the young man opened the door of the family's North Brunswick, New Jersey home to the gunman at 5pm.

He was immediately shot in the heart, the Daily Mail reported.

Before the gunman fled the scene he shot the older Mr Anderl several times after he came to investigate the noise.





District Court Judge Esther Salas was presiding over a case linked with Jeffrey Epstein


Judge Salas was in the basement at the time of the attack and was uninjured.

Mr Anderl's condition is said to be stable as he is treated in Robert Wood Johnson Hospital in New Brunswick, the New Jersey Globe reported.

Judge Salas had recently been assigned to a civil financial fraud case tied to Jeffrey Epstein.





Mark Anderl is in a critical but stable condition (Image: News 4 New York)


The ongoing case was brought by Deutcsh Bank investors who claimed that the bank made false and misleading statements about anti-money laundering policies.

They claim the bank also failed to monitor customers such as Jeffey Epstein, who they allege was high risk.

Earlier this month the bank agreed to pay a $150million (£118million) fine for having continued to work with Epstein after he was convicted of soliciting underage prostitutes in 2008.

Den Hollander, the suspect, was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Sullivan County, New York.

He had represented a woman who wanted to register for the military's selective service and claimed the draft was unconstitutional because it barred women from registering, CNN reported.

Update re: EPSTEIN: Princess Diana's Bridesmaid was on Pedos' Island & Jet

Jeffrey Epstein Had Another Royal in Infamous Black Book - The Queens' Nephew

EXCLUSIVE: The Earl of Snowdon, widely known by his professional name David Linley, was in The Paedophile’s List of Contacts, that includes Donald Trump and ex-US President Bill Clinton


Daily Mirror UK, 26 JUL 2020


One of the lawyers for Jeffrey Epstein’s victims wants to speak to everyone named in his infamous black book – including the Queen’s nephew David Armstrong-Jones.

The Earl of Snowdon, widely known by his professional name David Linley, was in the paedophile’s list of contacts.

Others included some of the world’s most powerful people,
including Donald Trump and former US president Bill Clinton.

Florida-based Spencer Kuvin, representing several Epstein victims, urged the royal to speak to investigators, alongside his cousin Prince Andrew.

There is no suggestion the Earl is accused of any wrongdoing or has any information about Prince Andrew’s friendship with Epstein, who died in jail in 2019, or his socialite pal Ghislaine Maxwell.

Jeffrey Epstein died in jail in 2019

But Mr Kuvin told the Sunday People: “Anyone with information about Epstein, Maxwell and any of their comings and goings over the past two decades and more should come forward and talk... including Viscount Linley.

He added: “I am never surprised at the growing list of people that became Epstein’s unfortunate friends.

"He worked his way into every part of society, high and low.”

The Earl is known as the royal carpenter due to his high-end furniture business Linley’s. His mother Margaret, the Queen’s sister, died in 2002 and he became the 2nd Earl of Snowdon after his father died in 2017.

The Earl, now set to divorce after more than 25 years of marriage, was picked by his first cousin Prince Charles as No2 in The Prince’s Foundation.

The appointment in 2018 raised eyebrows as he was chosen ahead of William and Harry.

A friend said: “David is very, very close to the Queen and Prince Charles. He goes to Sandringham at Christmas and Balmoral in the summer. He is George VI’s grandson and in the inner circle of royals.

He is also Mr Non-Grand Royal.

He turns up on his cycle in a high-vis jacket and gets mistaken for a warden. He is popular and social.”

His daughter Lady Margarita, 17, was a flower girl for the Duchess of Cambridge when she wed William.

Mr Kuvin again called for Prince Andrew to speak to prosecutors. He added: “We’ve always believed Andrew should testify about what he saw at Epstein’s various mansions.”

Prince Andrew denies any wrongdoing and has stated that he has offered to speak to the FBI. The Earl of Snowdon declined to comment.

EXCLUSIVE:Prince Andrew, Described as Being The "Powerful Individual", Spent Two Days Alone at Epstein Ranch Allegedly Having Orgy With The Tycoons' Numerous Under-Aged Girls

In Ghislaine Maxwell court documents make a series of claims, with alleged victim Virginia Giuffre saying she was rewarded with “close to a thousand dollars” by convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein

Daily Mirror UK, 2 AUG 2020





Prince Andrew and a girl who claims she was a sex slave for Jeffrey Epstein spent two days alone at the tycoon’s huge ranch, court documents claim.





A manuscript written by Virginia Giuffre says the Duke had “a really good time” and that she gave him “numerous massages”.


Ms Giuffre – who was 17 or 18 at the time – says she was later rewarded with “close to a thousand dollars” by convicted paedophile Epstein.


The sensational claims emerged in a tranche of newly-released court papers which Epstein’s former lover Ghislaine Maxwell, 58, tried to block.

Describing her time with Andrew at Epstein’s 7,559-acre Zorro ranch near Sante Fe, New Mexico, Ms Giuffre writes:

“My job was to entertain him endlessly, whether that meant having to bestow him my body during an erotic massage or simply take him horseback riding.

"The mansion was completely empty save a couple of maids who also cooked our dinners for us, and a couple of bodyguards that we hardly even saw at all.”

She claims Maxwell – a longtime pal of Andrew, 60 – arranged for her to go to the ranch, around 2001, but did not tell her who would be there.

“Ghislaine only told me that I was to meet someone there, not sure of whom that was. It wasn’t my place to ask,” Ms Giuffre claims.

When she arrived at the ranch she saw Andrew who, she says, greeted her with the “same old cheesy
grin” she had seen when they met up previously in London and New York.

Unlike the Prince’s other visits to Epstein’s homes, the American financier and Maxwell were not present.

Ms Giuffre says after two days with Andrew, she was recalled to New York to debrief Epstein and Maxwell.

She says that during a conversation in the tycoon’s kitchen Maxwell asked: “So… how was the ranch with the Prince?”

Ms Giuffre, now 36 and a mum of three living in Australia, says she replied: “I think he had a really good time, he seemed relaxed and when we said goodbye he gave me a kiss.

“I took him horse-riding, just around the property, we went swimming in the pool and, of course, I gave him plenty of massages. He had a massage at least couple of times each day, really seeming to enjoy his time there.”

Describing the reaction of Epstein and his lover Maxwell, she adds: “Like proud parents, they looked me with such content. ‘Good, you did really well,’ Jeffrey complimented me.”

She says Epstein gave her “close to a thousand dollars… more than what I thought anybody at my young age could make for a couple of days work”.

During the Prince’s interview with BBC Newsnight last November, he was at pains to suggest he was never alone while at Epstein’s properties in New York, Florida and the Caribbean.

But he was not asked about visiting Zorro.

A former ranch hand told the Sunday Mirror he saw Andrew a couple of times but never “without Jeffrey or Ghislaine”.

The new claims heap more pressure on the Metropolitan Police to release logs kept by royal protection officers.

One former royal bodyguard, Paul Page, has said notes would include times and dates of trips the Prince took. Logs are kept for 30 years.

Forty-seven court documents were unsealed by New York Judge Loretta Preska on Thursday.

They relate to a 2015 civil case between Maxwell and Ms Giuffre. A second wave of papers could be released – subject to an appeal scheduled for next month.

It was in a 2015 affidavit that Ms Giuffre – referred to as Jane Doe 3 – claimed she had sex with Andrew in Maxwell’s Belgravia home, Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse and at an orgy on the tycoon’s Caribbean island.

Her claims were struck out of the civil case by Florida judge Kenneth Marra.

He ruled:


“The factual details regarding with whom and where the Jane Does engaged in sexual activities are immaterial and impertinent to this central claim (i.e., that they were known victims of Mr Epstein and the Government owed them CVRA duties), especially considering that these details involve non-parties who are not related to the respondent Government. These unnecessary details shall be stricken.”


In other claims reported yesterday, Ms Giuffre alleges Andrew had “an orgy with numerous other under-aged girls” at Epstein’s Caribbean home – and Maxwell had “continuous” sex with girls and women.

Maxwell was arrested in New Hampshire last month on suspicion of grooming and abusing three girls under the age of 18.

She is also accused of perjury and faces up to 35 years if convicted.

She has pleaded not guilty and is due for trial in New York in July 2021.

Andrew and his legal team have vehemently denied Ms Giuffre’s claims.

A picture shows them together but the Prince said in his Newsnight appearance that he does not recall ever meeting her.

Epstein, 66, killed himself in jail last year while awaiting sex-trafficking charges.

Andrew was pictured walking with the tycoon in New York’s Central Park in 2010, just months after the paedophile was released from prison for procuring a minor for prostitution.

Andrew told Newsnight: “I went there with the sole purpose of saying to him that because he had been convicted, it was inappropriate for us to be seen together.”

The Duke’s spokesperson declined to comment.

But the new claim was met with shock by his friends.

One said: “The Zorro account is a serious inconsistency. Ms Giuffre’s lawyers have always claimed three alleged encounters. And now this fourth allegation. How so? Why has this never been raised before?

“And where is the evidence? I’d suggest you put these questions to her llawyers, not to the Duke.

Update Re: EPSTEIN: Princess Diana's Bridesmaid was on Pedos' Island & Jet

Bridesmaid for Princess Diana was Guest on Epstein Island:
Clemmie Hambro Who Took Two Trips on Paedophile's Private Jet Says 'I Was Young, Naive and Lucky to Escape'

  • Clemmie Hambro revealed as guest on Jeffrey Epstein's private island
  • She also took two flights to Little St James on one of the paedophile’s jets
  • Travel logs were released as part of court proceedings for Ghislaine Maxwell
  • Now married mother of four said she did not suffer or witness any abuse
Daily Mail UK, 6 AUG 2020





Clemmie Hambro last night told of her ‘very lucky’ escape after she was a guest on Jeffrey Epstein's 'Paedo island'


One of Princess Diana’s bridesmaids last night told of her ‘very lucky’ escape after she was a guest on Jeffrey Epstein’s island.

Clemmie Hambro also took two flights on the paedophile’s jet, part of a fleet he owned, including one dubbed the Lolita Express.

On both occasions she had been at Epstein’s luxury homes where he spent many years abusing young girls.

One of them was on Little St James in the US Virgin Islands, known to locals as Paedo Island.

Miss Hambro, a great-granddaughter of Sir Winston Churchill, said she has been ‘completely horrified’ by the revelations about the financier’s conduct and her ‘heart breaks for all the survivors’.

The now married mother of four said she did not suffer or witness any abuse, but added that she hopes those who were raped and molested ‘get the justice they so deserve’.

Miss Hambro, now 44, issued a statement after the logs, released as part of court proceedings, revealed she flew on Epstein’s Gulfstream jet following visits to his ranch in New Mexico and Little St James.

At the point she made the trips in 1999, Miss Hambro was a 23-year-old employee at Christie’s auction house in New York.





The now married mother of four, who was one of Princess Diana ’s bridesmaids, said she did not suffer or witness any abuse, but added that she hopes those who were raped and molested ‘get the justice they so deserve’

One was a ‘work trip’ to help Epstein decide what art he wanted to buy for his ranch, while another was a ‘personal invitation’ to Little St James.

The island, bought by the former Wall Street financier for just under £5million, is at the centre of appalling allegations of abuse by Epstein, who killed himself in jail a year ago. Epstein would ferry his victims around the world on his jets.

Records show Epstein, then eight years before his conviction, was with Miss Hambro on both flights, and that his alleged madam, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, 58, was also present for one trip.

Writer Miss Hambro’s contact details were also listed in the disgraced tycoon’s infamous ‘little black book’. She was the youngest bridesmaid at the wedding of Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles in July 1981. The daughter of Richard Hambro from the banking family, she was just five at the time.

She also took two flights on the paedophile’s jet, part of a fleet he owned, including one dubbed the Lolita Express. One of the flight was from Little St James in the US Virgin Islands, known to locals as Paedo Island.

The flight logs unearthed by the Mail reveal that on February 21, 1999, Miss Hambro flew with Epstein, Maxwell and two other women from Santa Fe, where Epstein had his ‘Zorro Ranch’, to New York’s Teterboro airport.

A month later, on March 21, she was on his jet from St Thomas, used by Epstein to access Little St James, to Teterboro. With her were Epstein and two women including a New York socialite.

In a statement last night, Miss Hambro said: ‘The first flight was a work trip with female colleagues to look at Epstein’s new home in Santa Fe to discuss what art he was going to buy.

'The second trip, to Little St James, was a personal invitation, which I thought would be fun to accept, but I didn’t know anyone there, didn’t really enjoy myself, and never went back. My heart breaks for all the survivors, now I know what happened on that island.

Miss Hambro, now 44, issued a statement after the logs, released as part of court proceedings ahead of Ghislaine Maxwell's trial, revealed she flew on Epstein’s Gulfstream jet following visits to his ranch in New Mexico and Little St James

‘In the course of those two trips, I was not abused, nor did I see anyone abused, or anything untoward happen, with minors or otherwise. I have been completely horrified about the revelations of his conduct since then. I was clearly very lucky, my heart goes out to those who were abused by him, and I trust they get the justice they so deserve.’

She added: ‘I was young and naive, and could not conceive of what was to unfold.’ She only travelled on Epstein’s jet, logs show, when leaving his homes. It is not known how she arrived.

Details came days after it emerged another British woman, described as Epstein’s former secret girlfriend, flew on his jets 35 times. Now 43, Shelley Anne Lewis is a ‘spiritual entrepreneur’. There is no suggestion she was involved in any wrongdoing.

And the wife of an aristocrat whose family are worth £900 million also flew more than 30 times on Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express’. Clare Hazell took 32 flights between 1998 and 2000, including trips to his luxury homes. She became Countess of Iveagh in 2001 when she married Edward Guinness, part of the famous brewing dynasty.

While there is no suggestion she had any knowledge of any wrongdoing, Epstein’s victims are understood to have approached her as a possible witness.

In 2015, Miss Hambro, whose husband's stepfather was Harold Pinter, wrote movingly in the Mail of the day she was Diana’s bridesmaid. She said: ‘Like Charlie in his Chocolate Factory, I’d won the golden ticket.’

Maxwell is awaiting trial for helping Epstein in his abuse. She denies all the allegations.

Update re: EPSTEIN 'Child' Sex Abuse Victim Sues Prince Andrew

Ghislaine Maxwells' Lurid Sex Life Allegations Exposed as Epstein Deposition Published

Ghislaine Maxwell denies witnessing 'inappropriate' activities


A federal appeal court ruled that Ghislaine Maxwell's deposition which her lawyers have said included questioning that was 'extremely personal and confidential'


BBC UK, 24 OCT. 2020.





Ghislaine Maxwell is due to go on trial in 2021


US sex offender Jeffrey Epstein's former girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell said she never witnessed "inappropriate underage activities" by him, according to transcripts of a 2016 deposition.

The testimony was made in a now-settled civil defamation lawsuit brought by one of the late financier's accusers, Virginia Giuffre.

Ms Maxwell had long fought to keep the testimony secret.

She will go on trial in a criminal case next year and has pleaded not guilty.

She is accused of helping Epstein traffic and sexually abuse underage girls and of perjury for denying involvement in such a scheme when she gave her deposition under oath.

The 58-year-old has been in custody since her arrest in July. If convicted, she could be sentenced to up to 35 years in prison.


What Does the Deposition Say?

Ms Giuffre (née Roberts) sued Ms Maxwell in 2015 after the British socialite said she was a liar.

Transcripts of the 2016 deposition from the now-settled case were released on Thursday under the orders of US District Judge Loretta Preska.

Ms Maxwell's lawyers had argued that releasing the documents would violate her constitutional right against self-incrimination and could impede her right to a fair trial next year. They said she had believed the deposition would remain confidential.

But appeals judges ruled on Monday that Judge Preska had rightly determined that the public had a right to access the documents, and said arguments by Ms Maxwell's lawyers were "meritless".

In the deposition, which spans more than 400 pages, Ms Maxwell repeatedly denies and dismisses numerous allegations, and insists she never saw the financier have sex with anybody.

"I never saw any inappropriate underage activities with Jeffrey ever," she said.

Asked if she was aware of any non-consensual sexual acts between Epstein and masseuses, she replied: "All the time that I have been in the house I have never seen, heard, nor witnessed, nor have [had] reported to me that any activities took place, that people were in distress, either reported to me by the staff or anyone else."

She also said she never hired anyone under the age of 18 to work in Epstein's homes and never participated in any sexual activities with them.

Asked whether she believed that Epstein had sexually abused minors, she said: "I can only testify to what I know. I know that Virginia is a liar".

Ms Maxwell also called Ms Giuffre an "awful fantasist".

Ms Giuffre alleges that Ms Maxwell recruited her as a masseuse to the financier while she was a minor. She says Epstein kept her as a "sex slave" with Ms Maxwell's assistance.

Sigrid McCawley, a lawyer for Ms Giuffre, said the unsealing of the deposition was "a long time coming and a welcome step towards revealing the evidence of the scope and scale of the Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell sex trafficking ring."


Who is Ghislaine Maxwell?


Ms Maxwell is the daughter of the late disgraced UK newspaper tycoon Robert Maxwell, his ninth and youngest child.

Born on Christmas Day in 1961 outside Paris, Ms Maxwell is Oxford-educated and is said to speak several languages,

A well-connected socialite, she is said to have introduced Epstein to many of her wealthy and powerful friends, including Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew.

Friends said that although Ms Maxwell and Epstein's romantic relationship lasted only a few years, she continued to work with him long afterward, the Washington Post reports.






"She had an upbringing and taste and knew how to run a house and a boat and how to entertain," an acquaintance was quoted by the UK's Daily Telegraph as saying. "You can't buy that. You can't buy access, either."

In a Vanity Fair profile published in 2003, Epstein said Ms Maxwell was not a paid employee, but rather his "best friend".

In court documents, former employees at the Epstein mansion in Palm Beach describe her as the house manager, who oversaw the staff, handled finances and served as social coordinator, the Post reports.


What are The Charges She Faces?

Prosecutors allege that between 1994 and 1997, Ms Maxwell helped Epstein groom girls as young as 14. They have said that they expect "one or more victims" to testify.

Four of the charges Ms Maxwell faces relate to the years 1994-97 when she was, according to the indictment, among Epstein's closest associates and also in an "intimate relationship" with him. The other two charges are allegations of perjury in 2016.

The indictment says Ms Maxwell "assisted, facilitated, and contributed to Epstein's abuse of minor girls by, among other things, helping Epstein to recruit, groom and ultimately abuse victims known to Maxwell and Epstein to be under the age of 18".


What about Epstein?


Epstein, 66, was a New York financier known for socialising with celebrities and politicians. In 2002, Donald Trump - then a property tycoon - called Epstein a "terrific guy".

In 2005, following a complaint from the parents of a 14-year-old girl in Florida, Epstein was convicted for soliciting prostitution from a minor, for which he was registered as a sex offender.

He avoided federal charges - which could have carried a life sentence - and instead received an 18-month prison sentence, during which he was able to go to work. He was released on probation after 13 months.

But following allegations from former victims, he was arrested again in 2019 and accused of sex trafficking of underage girls.

He was found dead in a New York prison cell on 10 August as he awaited trial. The death was ruled a suicide by hanging.


Who is Virginia Giuffre?


Ms Giuffre has been one of Epstein's most prominent accusers. She alleges that she was forced into sex with the financier and his friends.

She says she was trafficked to London by Epstein when she was aged 17 to have sex with Prince Andrew.


"I knew I had to keep him [Prince Andrew] happy, because it's what Jeffrey and Ghislaine would expect from me," she told the BBC.

The prince has "categorically" denied any sexual contact with Ms Giuffre. In an interview with BBC Newsnight's Emily Maitlis last year, he said he didn't recall meeting her.

Prince Andrew stepped back from royal duties last November, saying the Epstein scandal had become a "major disruption" to the Royal Family.

Ghislaine Maxwell Denied $28.5m Bail in Sex Crime Case

A US judge has turned down a $28.5m (£21.4m) bail package by British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell who is awaiting trial on sex crime charges.

BBC News, 29 DEC 2020.




The New York ruling said the suspect, 59, poses a flight risk and the offer did not assure her appearance at future hearings.


She is accused of helping the convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein groom young girls, which she denies.

It is the second time bail for Ms Maxwell has been denied.

She has been in jail in Brooklyn, New York City since she was arrested in July at her secluded mansion in the state of New Hampshire.

Lawyers suggested she had been hiding out at the mansion.

Her bail package proposed that she be allowed to return home with armed guards to prevent her from escaping.

Lawyers objected to her prison conditions, saying she was subject to invasive searches and that guards disturbed her every 15 minutes to check she was still alive.

But prosecutors said there was a risk that, if bailed, Ms Maxwell could use her wealth to flee to France or the UK where she is a citizen and suggested she might try to avoid extradition.

Ms Maxwell was in a relationship with financier Jeffrey Epstein in the 1990s. He died in a prison cell in August last year as he awaited trial on sex trafficking charges, more than a decade after he was convicted for soliciting prostitution from a minor.

Four of the charges against Ms Maxwell relate to the years between 1994 and 1997, when prosecutors say she helped Epstein groom girls as young as 14. The other two charges are allegations of perjury in 2016.

She faces up to 35 years in prison if convicted in her trial, which is scheduled to begin next July.

Court documents filed in November to apply for bail said the multi-million dollar proposal represented all of Ms Maxwell and her husband's joint assets, including three homes.

Ms Maxwell is the daughter of media mogul Robert Maxwell. She allegedly introduced Epstein to wealthy and powerful figures including Bill Clinton and the Duke of York, Prince Andrew of the British Royal Family.

Paedo Jeffrey Epsteins' Pleasure Palace Where Prince Andrew Visited Wiped Off Map

Jeffrey Epstein and Prince Andrew's alleged 'pleasure palace' has been 'wiped off the map' as a £13.3million buyer sends in a digger to ensure no trace is left

Daily Mirror UK, 23 APR 2021.





Mirror's Christopher Bucktin outside the mansion


















The mansion of pervert Jeffrey Epstein, where his pal Prince Andrew allegedly “spent weeks” with him surrounded by topless teens, has been demolished.


Epstein abused underage girls at the house, which was adorned with pictures of naked girls and stocked with sex toys.

Developer Todd Michael Glaser, who bought it for £13.3million, sent in a digger to ensure no trace was left.

Estate agent Lawrence Moens said: “I only got involved in the sale to ensure it would be wiped off the map.”

One neighbour near the waterside property in Palm Beach, Florida, said: “Good riddance.

"That sick b****** abused dozens of girls in that home.

"Thank God it’s gone.”


Remnants of Epstein’s grotesque lifestyle could be seen in the debris as the Mirror visited the site.

It was here that victims said his alleged “madam” Ghislaine Maxwell, a pal of the prince, would help recruit girls and schedule teenagers to give Epstein massages.

Maxwell was held by the FBI last year but denies any involvement in grooming minors for her late ex Epstein.

Former butler Juan Alessi swore on oath in a 2005 criminal probe that he set up massage tables for Andrew, 61, every day as the royal “spent weeks with us” at the house.

He recalled seeing naked girls by the pool during Andrew’s stay but said they dressed before entering the house.

He said he never saw the prince take part in any of the alleged sexual activity.

Epstein died in jail in 2019 awaiting a sex trafficking trial.

Movies Re: EPSTEINS' Ghislaine Maxwell Releases Photo of Her Bruised Face

Ghislaine Maxwell: Lawyers Release Photo That Shows Bruised Face

Lawyers for the British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell have released a photo of her face which appears to show bruising under her left eye.


BBC News, 30 APR 2021.






She told her lawyers the bruise might be from shielding her eyes from the light, as she says the guards come to check her condition every 15 minutes.


Ms Maxwell is accused of helping convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein recruit and sexually abuse girls.

She has denied all the charges and allegations against her.

Her lawyers have repeatedly complained about her conditions in jail and have made several applications for bail, which so far have all been denied.

The 59-year-old has been behind bars in New York since last summer, awaiting her trial on 12 July. This is the first photo of her released in that time.

She appeared in court earlier in April, her first appearance since her arrest

Ms Maxwell's lawyer Bobbi Sternheim sent the photo in a letter to Judge Alison Nathan on Thursday.

It said guards had confronted her about the bruise, and said they would put her in a special housing unit if she did not say how she had received it.

"While Ms Maxwell is unaware of the cause of the bruise, as reported to medical and psych staff, she has grown increasingly reluctant to report information to the guards for fear of retaliation, discipline, and punitive chores," Ms Sternheim reportedly said.

On Thursday Judge Nathan ordered an explanation of if and why guards were conducting "night time surveillance" on Ms Maxwell, and if she could be given an eye covering if needed.

In August 2019, Epstein killed himself behind bars while awaiting his trial on sex trafficking charges.

Ms Maxwell, the daughter of media mogul Robert Maxwell, was in a relationship with financier Epstein in the 1990s. She allegedly introduced Epstein to wealthy and powerful figures including Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew of the British Royal Family.

She faces six counts including sex-trafficking of a minor and sex-trafficking conspiracy. She also faces a further two charges relating to allegations of perjury in 2016.

Two new charges brought in March relate to allegations that Ms Maxwell recruited a 14-year-old girl to provide Epstein with sexualised massages between 2001 and 2004. The girl was then paid hundreds of dollars in cash in return and was encouraged to recruit other young women.

Movies Re: EPSTEIN 'Child' Sex Abuse Victim Sues Prince Andrew

Virginia Giuffre: Prince Andrew Accuser Files Civil Case in US

Victim of Jeffrey Epstein has filed a lawsuit against Prince Andrew in New York, seeking damages over alleged sexual abuse when she was "a Child".

US woman who alleges she was brought to the UK aged 17 to have sex with the Duke of York has filed a civil case in New York claiming he abused her.

BBC News, 10 AUG 2021.






Virginia Giuffre, then Roberts, was pictured with Prince Andrew in London in 2001





Ms Giuffre implored the British public to "stand beside her" in an interview with Panorama in 2019



Virginia Giuffre, who was an accuser of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, claims she was sexually assaulted by Prince Andrew in London and New York.

Prince Andrew, 61, has consistently denied Ms Giuffre's claims.

Ms Giuffre's case cites New York's Child Victims Act, which expanded victims' rights to sue alleged abusers.

The case claims the prince engaged in sexual acts without her consent, knowing how old she was and "that she was a sex-trafficking victim".

It says the "extreme and outrageous conduct" continues to cause Ms Giuffre, now 38, "significant emotional and psychological distress and harm".

"In this country no person, whether president or prince, is above the law, and no person, no matter how powerless or vulnerable, can be deprived of the law's protection," the documents read.

"Twenty years ago Prince Andrew's wealth, power, position, and connections enabled him to abuse a frightened, vulnerable child with no one there to protect her. It is long past the time for him to be held to account."

Speaking about Ms Giuffre's allegations in 2019, Prince Andrew said they "never happened".

"It didn't happen. I can absolutely categorically tell you it never happened. I have no recollection of ever meeting this lady, none whatsoever," he told BBC Newsnight.

In a later statement, Prince Andrew said: "I continue to unequivocally regret my ill-judged association with Jeffrey Epstein.

"His suicide has left many unanswered questions, particularly for his victims, and I deeply sympathise with everyone who has been affected and wants some form of closure.

"I can only hope that, in time, they will be able to rebuild their lives. Of course, I am willing to help any appropriate law enforcement agency with their investigations, if required."

The new legal complaint alleges that the prince and his representatives have rejected requests to provide "whatever facts, context or explanation he might have, and to explore alternative dispute resolution approaches".

The BBC has contacted Buckingham Palace and Prince Andrew's representatives for comment.


What is the Child Victims Act?

New York State's Child Victims Act was signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo in 2019.




It allowed survivors of childhood sexual abuse to file a case which had already been time-barred or expired, and gave them a year to do so.

That one-year window was then extended because of disruption to court services during the pandemic and ends this week, on 14 August.

Mr Cuomo called it a "pathway to justice" for people who allege they were abused when under-age and was intended to help "right wrongs that went unacknowledged and unpunished".


Meanwhile, an independent inquiry found this month that Mr Cuomo harassed multiple women. Mr Cuomo denied touching anyone inappropriately and vowed to stay in office.


The case alleges the prince sexually abused Ms Giuffre - then known as Virginia Roberts - at the London home of Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell, and at Epstein's homes in Manhattan and Little St James in the US Virgin Islands.

Ms Maxwell has pleaded not guilty to federal charges that she conspired with Epstein in the abuse of four under-age girls. She is due to stand trial in November.

Update Re: EPSTEIN Prince Andrew Can Face Civil Court For Sex Abuse W.O Entering US

Prince Andrew Can Still Face Civil Court For Sex Abuse Claims Without Entering US'

It comes as Virginia Giuffre this week alleged in court that she was “loaned” to Andrew by Epstein and Epsteins’ alleged “recruiter” Ghislaine Maxwell, when she was 17

7 explosive allegations from Virginia Giuffre lawsuit accusing Prince Andrew of abuse


Virginia Giuffre has issued legal proceedings against the Duke of York over allegations he abused her as a teenager on a number of occasions through his friendship with the paedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein

Daily Mirror, 12 AUG 2021






Prince Andrew can still be tried for sex abuse claims in a civil court without entering America, legal experts claim.




It comes as Virginia Giuffre this week alleged in court that she was “loaned” to Andrew by Epstein and Epstein’s alleged “recruiter” Ghislaine Maxwell, when she was 17, allegations the prince strongly denies.







Last night Andrew arrived at Balmoral with his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, to visit the Queen who is there on her summer break.



While there has been no public statement to confirm whether Andrew will fly to the U.S., experts claims he can still be tried in his absence.


What are the main allegations in the court documents?


1. Prince Andrew is accused of sexual assault and battery

The lawsuit claims Ms Giuffre did not consent to any sexual acts with Prince Andrew, but alleges he sexually abused her 'for the purpose of gratifying his sexual desires' on a number of occasions.

The Duke is accused of committing sexual assault and battery upon Ms Giuffre when she was 17 years old.

"As such, Prince Andrew is alleged to be responsible for battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress," the lawsuit states.

"The damage to the alleged victim is claimed to have been severe and lasting."


2. Teen victim was 'regularly abused' and lent out to rich men

Ms Giuffre claims she was regularly abused by Epstein and was lent out by the billionaire to other powerful men for sexual purposes, including Prince Andrew.

The lawsuit says she was the victim of trafficking and sex abuse by Epstein between 2000 and 2002.

While she was initially recruited to provide massages this alleged abuse would go on to include engaging in sexual acts, being on call for Epstein for sexual purposes and travelling with him across the US and internationally.

Andrew was a close friend of Ghislaine Maxwell, a British socialite who spent years overseeing and managing Epstein’s sex trafficking network. She allegedly recruited underage girls, including Ms Giuffre.

The prince met Epstein through Maxwell in 1999, going on to become a guest in the billionaire's various homes around the world.


3. Girl 'forced to have sex with prince then threatened to stay silent'

Ms Giuffre was allegedly forced to have sex with Prince Andrew at Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell’s direction.

"On one occasion, Prince Andrew sexually abused [the] Plaintiff in London at Maxwell’s home," the court document alleges.

"During this encounter, Epstein, Maxwell, and Prince Andrew forced [the ] Plaintiff, a child, to have sexual intercourse with Prince Andrew against her will."

Epstein and Maxwell intimidated the alleged victim into remaining silent about what had happened to her, the document goes on to claim.

The lawsuit alleges Ms Giuffre "was compelled by express or implied threats by Epstein, Maxwell, and/or Prince Andrew to engage in sexual acts with Prince Andrew.

"[She] feared death or physical injury to herself or another and other repercussions for disobeying Epstein, Maxwell, and Prince Andrew due to their powerful connections, wealth, and authority".


4. One incident allegedly involved a second victim

On one occasion, Prince Andrew is accused of sexually abusing Ms Giuffre in Epstein’s New York mansion.

During this encounter, Maxwell is claimed to have forced the then-teenager and another victim to sit on the royal’s lap as he touched her.

On another occasion, the Duke is alleged to have sexually abused Ms Giuffre on Epstein’s private island in the US Virgin Islands, Little St. James.


5. Prince Andrew accused of knowing teen was sex trafficking victim

The lawsuit not only alleges that the prince abused a teenager, but that he knew how old she was at the time 'based on communications from Epstein and Maxwell'.

He is further accused of engaging in sexual acts with her at Epstein and Maxwell’s invitation, knowing she was a sex-trafficking victim being forced to do so.


6. Andrew's contact details said to be in Epstein's 'Black Book' of abuse

Epstein kept a 'Black Book' to organise his abuse, a collection of phone numbers and contact information listing girls to call for “massages” in various cities.

The book also included flight logs documenting his frequent travel with young girls and powerful individuals on his private plane, and troves of lewd photographs of young girls recovered from his homes, the suit claims.

Epstein had at least 12 different contact numbers listed for Prince Andrew in the book, it is alleged.


7.Prince Andrew 'refused to co-operate' with investigators over Epstein

The lawsuit accuses Prince Andrew of 'publicly feigning ignorance' about the scope of Epstein’s sex-trafficking operation, and not helping with criminal probes.

It highlights the disastrous interview the prince agreed to take part in on Newsnight, in which he addressed his relationship with Epstein.

During that programme the prince said he would assist law enforcement agencies with their investigations into the billionaire, but the lawsuit claims he has since refused to do so.

Eighteen months ago US Attorney Geoffrey Berman claimed the prince had provided 'zero' co-operation over the Epstein inquiry.

"Prince Andrew and his counsel have also refused to cooperate with counsel for the victims of Epstein’s sex trafficking," the lawsuit alleges. "Andrew and his representatives have rejected all such requests, and responded by escalating their vile and baseless attacks on [the] Plaintiff and others."

Popcorn re: EPSTEIN -Prince Andrew Served Court Papers as Lawyer Says Case is Non-Viable

Prince Andrew 0ffered £75million to Take Public Lie Detector Test Over Jeffrey Epstein

Investigative journalist Ian Halperin has offered Prince Andrew $100 million (£75m) to take a polygraph test over his relationship with the late paedophile Jeffrey Epstein


Daily Mirror, 20 AUG 2021


Prince Andrew is being offered $100 million (£75m) to take a public lie detector test about his relationship with the late paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Investigative journalist Ian Halperin is offering the Duke of the York the money, equal to £73.3 million, “to come clean and take a polygraph test with a world-leading polygraph examiner.”


The New York Times bestselling author wants to quiz Andrew, 61, about claims from his sex accuser Virginia Giuffre.

She alleges she was brought from the US to London at age 17 to have sex with the Prince in 2001 before then being loaned out to him two further times in the States by Epstein.

The Duke has vehemently denied her claims.

Halperin’s offer comes just a week after, Giuffre, 38, issued civil proceedings against Andrew in New York over rape and sexual abuse allegations.

The author said the stunt would be a pay per view event.

“If he (Andrew) is as innocent as he says he is, he passes and it clears his name. It is a great way for him to vindicate himself in 45 minutes,” Halperin told Mail Online.

“It will be a pay per view event, hopefully the biggest pay per view in history, where Andrew gets $100million for just turning up and taking the test.”

The writer added: “So it is a win-win for him and he would be able to make a donation to victims of child sex trafficking.

"It would make him look great.

“Nobody has ever made that amount of money for 45 minutes work. And we will provide him with hair and make-up.”

Canadian Halperin has made films and documentaries using certified polygraph tests to try to establish the credibility of witnesses.

He explained: “I have specialised in doing broadcast polygraphs for years, working with some of the world's leading polygraph examiners.”

“I am open-minded about the result. I leave the door open for him to clear his name. I am bypassing this 'he says, she says' and cutting to the chase.

The event would be Andrew's first appearance on-camera since his car crash BBC Newsnight interview with presenter Emily Maitlis in November 2019.

The Prince is one of many high profile and powerful people linked to Epstein, who Manhattan federal prosecutors charged in July 2019 with sexually exploiting dozens of girls and women.

Epstein, a registered sex offender, killed himself at the age of 66 in a Manhattan jail on August 10, 2019, while awaiting trial.

Prosecutors later said Andrew had provided "zero cooperation" with their probe despite saying he would.

Prince Andrew Served Court Papers in Sex Assault Law Suit Amid Rape Allegations

Prince Andrew has been “served” with court papers outlining lurid allegations by sex trafficking victim Virginia Giuffre

Daily Mirror 11 SEP 2021.







The Duke of York was served with the civil suit filed by Virginia Giuffre on August 27, according to a document filed in a New York court.

The document says the suit was left with a police officer on duty at the gates of the Royal Lodge in Windsor.

Andrew has vehemently denied the allegations in the past and a spokeswoman representing the Duke of York has declined to comment on the latest update.

Update Re: EPSTEIN -Prince Andrew Served Court Papers as Lawyer Says Case is Non-Viable

Prince Andrews' Lawyer Says NY Case is Baseless and Non-Viable

Prince Andrew officially set to be served as UK court accepts request in sex abuse case

Prince Andrew is set to be served with sex abuse case papers after alleged former sex slave Virginia Giuffre's lawyers asked the UK's High Court to serve the Duke of York her civil case


BBC News 15 SEP 2021.


The Duke of York's lawyer has described allegations of sexual assault filed in a US court as "baseless, non-viable [and] potentially unlawful".


Andrew Brettler told a pre-trial conference call in New York that a 2009 settlement between Virginia Giuffre and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein released the duke from "any and all liability".

He also said the duke had not been properly served notice of proceedings.

Prince Andrew has consistently denied Ms Giuffre's claims.

Mr Brettler - a Los Angeles-based lawyer promoted as a "media and entertainment litigation" specialist - requested a copy of the 2009 agreement, which is not public.

"There has been a settlement agreement that the plaintiff [Ms Giuffre] has entered into in a prior action that releases the duke and others from any and all potential liability," he said.

During the conference call on Monday, Mr Brettler denied that the prince had been given legal documents properly, a process known as "service" in US law.

Mr Brettler went on to argue it was for the High Court in London to decide whether the documents had been served correctly, but the judge, Lewis Kaplan, disagreed.

Judge Kaplan told Ms Giuffre's lawyer, David Boise, he had a week to find an alternative method of serving legal documents to the duke in the UK.

The judge said the next meeting in the case would happen on 13 October.

Ms Giuffre, now 38, was an accuser of Epstein, the billionaire convicted sex offender who died in prison in 2019, and claims she was sexually assaulted by the prince at three locations, including New York City.

Ms Giuffre - then known as Virginia Roberts - says she was assaulted at the London home of Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell, and at Epstein's homes in Manhattan and Little St James in the US Virgin Islands.

Her case claims Prince Andrew, 61, engaged in sexual acts without Ms Giuffre's consent, including when she was 17, knowing how old she was, and "that she was a sex-trafficking victim".

The prince, the Queen's second son, has consistently denied the claims, and told BBC Two's Newsnight in 2019: "It didn't happen. I can absolutely categorically tell you it never happened. I have no recollection of ever meeting this lady, none whatsoever."

Prince Andrew said in 2019 that he could not recall any incident involving Virginia Roberts.

Ms Giuffre's lawyers had claimed papers were left with a police officer at the gates of Prince Andrew's Windsor home last month - and that meant papers were successfully "served".

The duke does not face the prospect of an extradition hearing as this only applies to criminal charges and not civil cases.

Witness Who Claims She Saw Prince Andrew Dancing With His Sex Accuser Virginia Roberts in Tramp Nightclub on Night He Insists He was
in Pizza Express 'Will Testify in Court'


Shukri Walker will testify in upcoming civil case against Duke of York in New York
Will say she remembers Andrew because she stepped on his foot on dancefloor
Queen's son claims he has no recollection of meeting alleged victim Ms Giuffre
BBC News 28 SEP 2021












Somali-born Shukri Walker


An eyewitness who claims she saw Prince Andrew dancing with his alleged sex abuse victim Virginia Giuffre - on the same night he said he was at Pizza Express - will testify in court.

Shukri Walker has reportedly agreed to appear at the upcoming civil case in the US - where she will tell the court that she saw the Duke of York at Tramp nightclub in London back in 2001.

Somali-born Ms Walker, who lives in London, is expected to stand by a written statement she gave to the FBI, in which she said she vividly remembered apologising to the Queen's son after standing on his foot on the dancefloor, to which she claims he replied: 'No problem.'

She claims Ms Giuffre - aged 17 at the time - was with Andrew, while the royal says he has 'no recollection' of meeting her.

Andrew, 61, is being sued by Ms Giuffre, now 38, in New York over claims he sexually assaulted her on three occasions.

Alleged witness Ms Walker said: 'He (Andrew) looked like he was having a great time.

'And he was with this young girl who was close to my own age, perhaps even a bit younger than me.

'The young woman wasn't smiling, it was the opposite of smiles.

'They were with the woman who (had) just been arrested, Ghislaine Maxwell, and Epstein. I will never forget the night because I was told this is a real Prince.'

Andrew also wiped the back of his hand across his face several times, she claimed. The Duke infamously said he 'does not sweat' due to a medical condition.

A source with knowledge of development told the Mirror: 'Shukri is totally convinced she saw Andrew that night and is prepared to stand up in court to say so.

A case has been lodged in court in Florida this week connected to allegations against Jeffrey Epstein, who has been convicted of soliciting sex with an underage girl.


Court documents reported by the Guardian state:

'One such powerful individual Epstein forced the woman to have sexual relations with was a member of the British royal family, Prince Andrew (aka Duke of York).'

Prince Andrew has previously denied any sexual contact with young women associated with Epstein.

A spokesman for the royal said:

The Metropolitan Police will not take any further action against the Duke of York following a review prompted by Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre.

Prince Andrew - seen walking with Jeffrey Epstein in Central Park in New York in 2010 - has faced scrutiny over his ties to the convicted sex offender





Ms Giuffre is suing Prince Andrew in the US for allegedly sexually assaulting her when she was a teenager.

Prince Andrew has consistently denied Ms Giuffre's allegations.

In August, the Met said it would review its decision not to investigate allegations connected to Epstein.

Ms Giuffre, 38, claims she was sexually assaulted by the prince at three locations - London, New York and on Epstein's private island in the Caribbean.

Her case claims Prince Andrew engaged in sexual acts without Ms Giuffre's consent, including when she was 17.

The Met also confirmed it had completed its review into allegations reported in June by broadcaster Channel 4 News that British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein's former girlfriend, trafficked, groomed and abused women and girls in the UK.

The force said it had "reviewed information passed to us by a media organisation in June" and decided that "no further action will be taken".

In August 2019, US financier Epstein was found dead in his cell in New York's Metropolitan Correctional Center.

The Met previously ruled out opening an investigation into Epstein, but in August Metropolitan Police Commissioner Dame Cressida Dick said the force would review the decision.

On Sunday, the Met said: "As a matter of procedure, MPS officers reviewed a document released in August 2021 as part of a US civil action. This review has concluded and we are taking no further action."

The Met added that it will continue to liaise with other law enforcement agencies who are leading the investigation into matters associated with Epstein.

Ghislaine Maxwell Plagued by Rats and Stalked by Creepy Guards

Jeffrey Epstein Associate Ghislaine Maxwell Alleges Assault, Abuse By Prison Guards

Ghislaine Maxwell alleged she was compelled to stop taking showers due to "creepy" guards staring at her in Brooklyn's Metropolitan Detention Center.


REUTERS/The Telegraph 14 NOV 2021.

Ghislaine Maxwell, who pleaded not guilty by video link, accused of aiding Jeffrey Epstein in the sex trafficking of minors, was denied bail by judge who considered her a flight risk.




Interior images of the Metropolitan Detention Center.


Ghislaine Maxwell claims in a bombshell interview that she’s been assaulted by prison guards and forced to endure a hellish list of inhumane conditions while awaiting her trial on sex trafficking charges in a notorious Brooklyn lockup.

“I have been assaulted and abused for almost a year and a half,” the 59-year-old British socialite alleged in a sitdown interview with the Daily Mail inside Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center that’s to be published in full on Sunday.

Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged madam complained about the dismal food and poor sleeping conditions in the jail where she’s been held since her July 2020 arrest. And she even claims she has been forced to stop taking showers because of “creepy” guards who stare at her.

“I have not had a nutritious meal in all that time,” Maxwell said. “I haven’t slept without lights on – fluorescent lights that have damaged my eyes – or been allowed to sleep without constant interruptions.

“I am weak, I am frail,” she told the publication. “I have no stamina. I am tired. I don’t even have shoes which fit properly. They feed me rotten food. One apple had maggots in it. I have not been allowed to exercise.”

Ghislaine Maxwell said she’s been forced to stop taking showers because guards stare at her at Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center.

She also noted her frequent, furry roommates in lockup: rats.

“I used to go to the loo with an open sewer drain and a friendly rat would regularly visit,” she told the Mail.

“I told the guards, but nothing was done until the rat popped out and charged a guard, who screamed in terror,” the 59-year-old British socialite continued. “Finally, the sewer drain was covered.”

She had complained about the jail’s broken sewage system before.

Maxwell griped to the paper about being kept in “inhumane” solitary confinement. “I used to take a shower every day, but I’ve stopped because of the creepy guards who stand close and stare at me the whole time,” she said.

Maxwell has been held at the MDC since her July 2020 arrest.

Maxwell, who has pleaded not guilty to an eight-count indictment including sex-trafficking charges, faces up to 80 years behind bars if convicted at a trial set to begin next week. She was refused bail for the fourth time this week.

With the end of November fast approaching, Maxwell fears it will be “impossible” to receive a fair trial because of what she considers the negative media coverage surrounding her case.

“I’m terrified the overwhelmingly negative coverage will poison my jury pool and affect the outcome of my trial, despite the evidence which I feel confident will prove my innocence,” she said. “I look forward to having my day in court to prove I played no part in Epstein’s crimes. I am innocent.”

Ghislaine Maxwell has also complained about the “inhumane” solitary confinement.

In August, Maxwell barricaded herself in a conference room at the jail after a virtual meeting with her lawyer, causing what prosecutors called a “security threat.”

Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who accuses Maxwell of trafficking her to Britain’s Prince Andrew three times, including when she was underage, is expected to testify at Maxwell’s trial.

While Maxwell didn’t go into detail about the alleged assaults at the hands of jail guards, she did recount several contentious run-ins.

Once, she said, the guards accused her of possessing illegal contraband when she dropped her doctor-prescribed Tylenol on the floor.

“I was also threatened with punishment when I used a hair-tie to secure my legal documents,” Maxwell claimed.

“I was accused of being untidy, with ‘food and crumbs’ on my bed and told I would be disciplined. I had to prove the ‘food and crumbs’ were stains on the linens.”

Prince Andrew Royal Sleaze Fears as Tax Haven Banker Pays Dukes' £1.5Million Loan

As it's revealed a Tory donor paid off Prince Andrew’s £1.5million loan from a bank owner by the donor's family, there are calls for a probe into the royal’s relationship with the tycoon

Daily Mirror 17 NOV 2021.

A major Tory donor transferred £1.5million to Prince Andrew to pay off a loan from an offshore bank owned by the donor’s family, it was revealed today.

There were demands for an investigation into the Duke of York’s relationship with property tycoon David Rowland and Banque Havilland.

The bank made the unusual £1.5m loan to Andrew in 2017 partly because it opened up “further business potential with the Royal Family”, insiders told financial news service Bloomberg.

But 11 days later Mr Rowland wired the same amount to the Duke’s account with the bank. Graham Smith of anti-monarchy group Republic said: “Andrew received money with the clear expectation he’d lobby on their behalf while representing Britain. It must be investigated.”

Mr Rowland has given £6,104,034 to the Tory Party and has been friends with Andrew since at least 2005.

The prince was at the opening of Banque Havilland in tax haven Luxembourg in 2009, the opening of a Monaco branch in 2012 and the launch its joint venture with the Abu Dhabi sovereign wealth fund Mubadala in 2018.

In 2010 Mr Rowland was Andrew’s guest at Balmoral where he reportedly met the Queen and Prince Charles.

Months later he paid £40,000 to help clear the debts of Andrew’s ex, Sarah Ferguson. The Rowlands joined Andrew on a trade envoy trip to China that year, attending some meetings.

As the Duke faced losing his envoy role in 2011 over his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein, Mr Rowland’s son Jonathan suggested their activities could continue “under the radar”. Andrew replied: “I like your thinking.”

Andrew had a 40% stake in Inverness Asset Management owned by Rowland family business Blackfish Capital Management.

He had a £1.25m loan facility from Havilland between 2015 and 2017. A new £1.5m loan was approved in 2017 despite an internal record showing it was “not in line with the risk appetite of the bank”.

It has been two years since Andrew's Newsnight interview

Ex-staff said such “unsecured” loans were rarely made to individuals. It was repaid early after a transfer from an account in the name of Albany Reserves which was controlled, sources said, by the Rowland family.

Former minister Norman Baker said: “Parliament should investigate.”

A spokesman for Andrew said: “The Duke is entitled to a degree of privacy in conducting his entirely legitimate personal financial affairs, on which all appropriate accounting measures are undertaken and all taxes duly paid.”

Banque Havilland said: “Compliance with legal and regulatory requirements are the foremost priority of the bank. Any inference of wrongdoing is categorically denied.” David Rowland was not available for comment.

Alleged Ghislaine Maxwell Victim Set Up Tom Parker Bowles in Newspaper Cocaine Sting

Woman helped tabloid to entrap the son of Duchess of Cornwall by secretly filming him offering to buy drugs,

One of Ghislaine Maxwell’s accusers set up Tom Parker Bowles in a newspaper cocaine sting, The Telegraph can disclose.

The woman, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, helped tabloid journalists to entrap the son of the Duchess of Cornwall, secretly recording him offering to buy her cocaine. The Telegraph understands the woman was paid as much as £40,000 for her part in the undercover operation.

The disclosure comes more than a week ahead of Ms Maxwell’s trial for the sexual abuse and trafficking of underage girls. It is unclear if the background of the accusers, including the woman who helped to set up Mr Parker Bowles, will be raised at trial.

But it may, if introduced, threaten the credibility of the alleged victim over her willingness to betray an acquaintance, who is the stepson of the Prince of Wales.

Another of the four accusers, who also cannot be identified, had previously been arrested for possession of cocaine and use of drug equipment, The Telegraph has been told.


Countdown to the trial

Jeffrey Pagliuca, Ms Maxwell’s attorney, told the presiding judge last week that the defence planned to attack the credibility of the prosecution’s witnesses and alleged victims, questioning why they did not come forward with allegations against Ms Maxwell until after Epstein’s death, as well as pointing to previous “substance abuse”.

The prosecution of Ms Maxwell, 59, threatens to be one of the trials of the century. The daughter of Robert Maxwell, the disgraced media tycoon, she is accused of grooming young girls for the financier Jeffey Epstein, her one-time boyfriend, who committed suicide while in a New York jail cell in 2019 before he could stand trial.

Ms Maxwell subsequently went into hiding and was arrested by the FBI in a dramatic dawn raid. Epstein had a series of high-profile friends and associates, among them the Duke of York, Bill Clinton and Donald Trump.

She faces six federal charges that include sex trafficking of a minor, over allegations ranging from 1994 to 1997, and again between 2001 and 2004 of girls as young as 14. She denies the charges, which carry a potential sentence of 80 years in jail, meaning she could die in prison if found guilty.


How the sting unfolded

Mr Parker Bowles, who was 24 at the time, was caught in the newspaper sting offering to supply cocaine to “a society girl”. The woman is one of the accusers relied upon by New York prosecutors in the case against Ms Maxwell.

The sting operation on Mr Parker Bowles caused a furore at the time it was published in 1999, and was splashed across five pages in the News of the World.

The Telegraph has established that the woman was approached by the tabloid because she knew Mr Parker Bowles at the time.

She agreed to assist the newspaper, which secretly recorded Mr Parker Bowles offering to obtain cocaine or other drugs for the woman. He also told her: “I did a line with someone I found last night,” and then offered to get her “gear [cocaine] or weed”.

The interaction took place during the Cannes Film Festival where Mr Parker Bowles was working as a publicist. He declined to comment in the story’s aftermath, but a friend said at the time: “He is very sorry about all this and humbled by it”, while the Prince of Wales is said to have been “fairly cross” but offered him full support.

Mr Parker Bowles, now 46, has gone on to establish himself as one of Britain’s most successful food writers and critics.


Defence plans ‘to impeach alleged victims’

The court case is expected to run for several weeks, meaning Ms Maxwell, whose birthday is on Christmas Day, will turn 60 in a Brooklyn jail where she is being held on remand. Both sides, defence and prosecution, are currently engaged in wrangling over the selection of jurors with the trial itself due to begin on November 29.

At a hearing last week, Mr Pagliuca told Alison Nathan, the judge: “The defence plans to impeach the alleged victims on their failure to disclose any abuse earlier, and will also look at previous substance abuse.”

Ms Maxwell’s lawyers have fought to bar Lisa Rocchio, the US government’s expert witness and a clinical psychologist with expertise in traumatic stress, who explained to the court why some victims delay reporting abuse.

Judge Nathan is set to decide in Tuesday’s final pre-trial hearing whether the defence is allowed to bring up the victims’ past sexual history.

Ms Maxwell, who has been repeatedly denied bail, has complained of horrendous conditions in prison, having spent more than 500 days in custody since her arrest at a secret home she had purchased in New Hampshire in 2020, a year after Epstein’s suicide.

Update re: EPSTEIN: Maxwell TRIAL-Pilot Flew Prince Andrew /TRUMP/ Bill Clinton & Kevin Spacey

Ghislaine Maxwells' Sex-Trafficking Trial to Begin in New York City

British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell is due to go on trial in New York City on sex trafficking and other charges.


BBC News 29 NOV 2021.






Ms Maxwell's high-profile trial is expected to last six weeks in New York City






Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell in New York in 2005





She is expected to challenge claims she groomed underage girls for convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein for sexual abuse. He died in prison in 2019.

Ms Maxwell, 59, has been in a US jail since her arrest last year, awaiting the high-profile six-week trial.

Ms Maxwell, who also has American and French citizenship, has pleaded not guilty to all the charges against her.

Lawyers for Ms Maxwell, as well as family members, have repeatedly complained about her conditions in jail and her legal team has made several unsuccessful applications for bail.

Epstein died in a New York prison cell on 10 August 2019 as he awaited his trial on sex trafficking charges.


The trial of Ms Maxwell, the daughter of late media mogul Robert Maxwell, is scheduled for 08:30 local time (13:30 GMT) on Monday.

The prosecution is then expected to lay out the case and preview evidence and witnesses - but the defence is likely to question the credibility of some of the witnesses.

No cameras will be allowed in the courtroom.


According to a letter by Ms Maxwell's lawyer, the defence will say her accusers might have faulty memories.

The letter says that leading experts in psychiatry and memory will be brought in to testify in her defence.

Ghislaine Maxwell 'won't get fair trial' - brother



What are The Charges?


Ms Maxwell is accused of having helped Epstein sexually abuse underage girls.

US prosecutors allege she "played a critical role in the grooming and abuse" of minors.

Four charges relate to the years 1994-97 when she was, according to an indictment, among Epstein's closest associates and also in an "intimate relationship" with him.

Two other charges - of sex trafficking conspiracy and sex trafficking of a minor - came in an amended indictment and relate to the period 2001 and 2004.

Sarah Ransome, one of Epstein's alleged victims, has told the BBC's Panorama programme that Ms Maxwell worked closely with him.

She said: "Ghislaine controlled the girls. She was like the madam. She was like the nuts and bolts of the sex trafficking operation."


Timeline: Key Moments

Epstein Arrest and Death

6 July 2019


Financier Jeffrey Epstein is arrested in New Jersey after returning from France on a private jet. Federal charges accuse Epstein of trafficking a “vast network” of underage girls for sex.

He kills himself in a New York jail 36 days after his arrest.








Ghislaine Maxwell Arrest

3 July 2020

British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell is arrested in New Hampshire and accused of helping Epstein groom his victims.

Charges accuse her of befriending girls as young as 14 and enticing them into having sexual relations with Epstein. One alleged victim told the BBC that she “controlled the girls - she was like Madam”.

Prosecutors claim the abuse occurred in locations around the world, including Ms Maxwell’s London home.

She pleads not guilty. A judge denies her bail, calling her a flight risk.








A Second Set of Charges

29 March 2021

Two new US federal charges of sex trafficking conspiracy and sex trafficking of a minor are filed against Ms Maxwell, adding to the six she already faced.

Prosecutors say a fourth victim has been identified. The victim was allegedly abused in 2001 when she was 14 years old. Ms Maxwell denies these charges.


First Court Appearance

23 April 2021

Ms Maxwell appears in court for the first time, pleading not guilty to multiple charges of sex abuse, sex-trafficking and perjury.

Her defence lawyers argue that the conditions in her Brooklyn jail are inhumane and argue that she is “being treated horribly”. She is denied bail.



Trial Begins

29 November 2021

Ms Maxwell trial begins in New York, where she has been in jail since her arrest.

Earlier in November, a jury candidate pool of over 600 New Yorkers was whittled down to 12 jury members.







Ghislaine Maxwell's highly awaited trial will be closely followed from New York to London.


The British publishing heiress for years dodged the press as her accusers came forward with shocking and disturbing claims.

In the long and twisted saga of Jeffrey Epstein's sex trafficking scandal, his arrest and death under unusual circumstances, many questioned whether this trial would in fact take place.

Legal experts say this is one of the most high-profile cases to try a woman for allegedly facilitating a sex trafficking operation.

The four underage girls in the indictment, now grown women, are expected to take the stand to tell their stories under oath.

It's unclear if Ghislaine Maxwell will do the same. Her brother, Ian Maxwell says at least one sibling will be present every day of the trial to support her.

This case will be narrowly focused on the charges in the indictment, and therefore will not answer every burning question around Epstein's sex trafficking ring. But it will add another piece to the puzzle.


Who is Ghislaine Maxwell?


Born outside Paris on Christmas Day, 1961, Ms Maxwell grew up in a country mansion, went to Oxford University and speaks several languages.

She is Robert Maxwell's ninth and youngest child.

She is said to have had a very close relationship with her late father, and he named his luxury yacht - the Lady Ghislaine - after her.

Soon after her father's death in 1991, Ms Maxwell left the UK to settle in America, where she worked in real estate, and not long after met Jeffrey Epstein.

She sold her Manhattan townhouse in 2016, and kept a low profile until she was arrested last July at her secluded mansion in the state of New Hampshire.

Ghislaine Maxwell Sex Trafficking Trial - First of Four Accusers Takes The Stand

Ghislaine Maxwell was in the room when Jeffrey Epstein sexually abused me when I was 14, sobbing accuser tells trial

Ghislaine Maxwell victim saw Prince Andrew on Lolita Express with Jeffrey Epstein and she

mentioned names such as.... Donald Trump and Bill Clinton.

The Duke of York, Prince Andrew, has been under fire for his close ties to the paedophile, who committed suicide in August 2019 as he awaited trial for sex trafficking


The SUN UK, 2 DEC 2021.






'Jane' sobs in court as she speaks about the alleged abuse by Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein4



GHISLAINE Maxwell was in the room when Jeffrey Epstein sexually abused a 14-year-old girl, a court heard.


The first of four accusers took to the stand on Tuesday in New York as Maxwell faces six charges of sexual abuse and trafficking over her alleged role with Epstein.

Epstein was a multimillionaire sex offender who allegedly used his wealth and influence to construct a web of sexual slavery - with Maxwell as his "madam".

She faces charges relating to four victims, with the first - speaking under pseudonym "Jane" - appearing today at the courthouse in New York.

Jane claimed that she was just 14 when Epstein first sexually abused her - and said Maxwell was in the room at the time.

The alleged victim said she was "frozen in fear" having never seen a penis before.


She claimed that Maxwell would also instruct her how to give Epstein sexual massages and sometimes physically participated in the encounters.

And at one point during her testimony, Jane started to sob.



Maxwell denies all charges - and her lawyers claim she is being made a "scapegoat" after Epstein's death.

Jane said she first met Epstein and Maxwell in 1994 when she was attending a music camp in pursuit of a singing career, she said.

She said she was eating ice cream with friends when Maxwell approached with a Yorkshire Terrier, drawing their attention.

After her friends left, she spoke with Epstein, who had then arrived and introduced himself as a donor.

They discovered that they both lived in Palm Beach, Florida, she said.

The woman and her mother soon received an invitation to Epstein’s home


Her mother wasn’t included in subsequent invites but she remained very impressed with the wealth and status of Epstein and Maxwell.


She told the court her mother believed the pair must really thought daughter was special, the woman testified.

Soon, Epstein and Maxwell were taking her shopping for clothes, including underwear from Victoria’s Secret and she told the court: ... "I felt special."



FELT ASHAMED


But the cycle of abuse started when Epstein abruptly took her by hand one day and said “follow me” before taking her to a pool house at the home.

She said that he removed his trousers, pulled her close to him and began performing a sex act.

“I was terrified and felt gross and I felt ashamed,” she said.

Jane told the court she was subjected to abuse "every time" she visited his house.

Sometimes she would be made to participate in an "orgy", she said.

And on one occasion she watched as Epstein fondled himself as Ghislaine "rubbed" and "kissed" him, the court heard.

"She was very casual, like this was entirely normal. I was confused. When you are 14 you have no idea what is going on," she said.


She also claimed on one occasion she saw Maxwell and four other women topless by a pool.

And in another instance she was brought up to Epstein's bedroom at his mansion in Palm Beach.

"They moved me over to the bed and took their clothes off. And they started to sort of like fondle each other," she said.

"They asked me to take my top off. Then there were hands everywhere."

Epstein would like to massaged "hard" - including acts like "twisting his nipples", she added.

When you are 14 you have no idea what is going on > Jane


She said sexual encounters became routine after that with Maxwell sometimes present.

Maxwell would instruct Jane on "how Jeffrey likes to be massaged".

He would pay for things for Jane, such as clothes and singing lessons, the court heard.


And the couple would allegedly talk about their high profile social circle, mentioning names such as Donald Trump and Bill Clinton.


But defence lawyer Laura Menninger immediately attacked the witness's credibility.

The lawyer wondered why she waited over 20 years to report the alleged abuse by Maxwell to law enforcement.

She also asked why she brought two personal injury lawyers along to her first meeting with the FBI.


VERY CASUAL


Menninger also asked if it was true she had previously spoken to her siblings and others close to her about Epstein’s behavior, but left Maxwell out of the earlier accounts.

“You never mentioned Ghislaine Maxwell?” the lawyer asked.

Under cross examination from Menninger, the woman admitted she was awarded $5 million from a fund set up to compensate Epstein’s victims.

Testimony from Epstein's pilot earlier in the day saw the two former US Presidents named as passengers on the multimillionaire's private jet, along with Prince Andrew.

Jane claimed she travelled with the couple and visited properties in New York and New Mexico with flights on his private jet.

Maxwell first appeared in court this morning just after 8.30am wearing a mask, a beige turtleneck sweater and black slacks while cradling a lime green folder.

She waved to her sister Isabel who is in court to support her - and was also seen taking notes and passing them to her lawyers.

Prosecutors argue Maxwell "served up" young girls to Epstein as part of a pyramid scheme of abuse as she appeared in court in New York.

Epstein and Maxwell were described by prosecutors as 'partners in crime'


Epstein and Maxwell rubbed shoulders with the world's rich and famous - allegedly hiding in plain sight amid a web of sordid sex abuse.

She was a close friend of Prince Andrew, allegedly being the one who introduced him to Epstein.

Her lawyer Bobbi Sternheim claimed "ever since Eve, women have been blamed for the evil deeds of men".

She said: "Ghislaine Maxwell is not Jeffrey Epstein or any of the other men, moguls and media giants who abuse women."

The defence are expected to hinge much of their case on going after the victims.

However, the prosecution paint a very different picture of Ghislaine as instrumental in Epstein's web of money, sex and lies.

Lawyers called the 59-year-old Brit heiress a "dangerous predator" and said she and Epstein were “partners in crime”.








Maxwells' Charges:

GHISLAINE Maxwell faces six charges over her alleged involvement with Jeffrey Epstein: ...


Conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts

Enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex

Conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity


Transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity

Sex trafficking conspiracy

Sex trafficking of a minor



Maxwell is alleged to have snared girls as young as 14 into a "nightmare" after promising them "the world".

She is accused of walking girls into Epstein's liar where she watched as he molested them - and sometimes even joined in.

Convicted sex offender Epstein killed himself while awaiting trial for further sex trafficking charges in August 2019.

She also faces two other charges of perjury over allegations she lied in a deposition in a separate civil suit, but these will be tried separately.

Maxwell was arrested suddenly in July 2020 - and has been held in prison ever since as she was deemed a flight risk.

Ghislaine Maxwell Victim Saw Prince Andrew on Lolita Express With Jeffrey Epstein....


Daily Mirror 2 DEC 2021.


A woman who has accused Ghislaine Maxwell of grooming her to be abused by paedophile Jeffrey Epstein once took a flight with Prince Andrew, a court has heard.


The victim, known in court as “Jane’, was asked about her time on board the late billionaire’s private jet nicknamed the ‘Lolita Express'.

Cross-examined by defence counsel for Maxwell during the British socialite's sex abuse case, attorney Laura Menninger said: “Do you remember Prince Andrew being on a flight with you?”

Jane replied: “Yes”.

Today's testimony is the first time an alleged victim who witnessed the Duke of York, 61, on an Epstein flight has appeared before a jury.

The flight, which 'Jane' is listed as being on board with Andrew was when she 20-years-old flying from the billionaire's ranch in New Mexico to his home in Palm Beach.

The Duke has been under fire for his close ties to the late paedophile, who committed suicide in August 2019 as he awaited trial for sex trafficking.

Andrew is also facing a lawsuit from Virginia Giuffre, who claims Epstein and Maxwell made her have sex with the UK royal three times, starting in 2001 when she was 17.

The royal has emphatically denied the allegations and any wrongdoing.

Jane, whose identity is protected, testified to the flights she made aboard the paedophile’s private jet claiming she was trafficked across the States to be abused by the American financier.

The victim, who claims she first met Maxwell and Epstein at the Interlochen Music Camp in Michigan when she was 14-years-old, also alleged she was introduced to Donald Trump before he was President.

She said Epstein took her to the businessman's Mar-a-Lago resort when she was a teenager.

The woman said she was driven to Trump’s Palm Beach estate in a dark green car when she was 14 in 1994.

During cross-examination, Jane made it clear in one answer she was never asked or ordered to have sex with any of Epstein’s powerful friends.

Maxwell's youngest alleged victim earlier told the Lower Manhattan Court she does "not believe I have come up with a memory" of the British socialite being involved in sexual abuse after her testimony was challenged,

The witness was forced to deny inventing a memory in the last two years of her first meeting with the defendant.

Maxwell, who was described as "dangerous" during the opening statements of the trial, is accused of preying on vulnerable young girls and luring them to massage rooms to be molested by disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein between 1994 and 2004.

Jane told the court on Tuesday she had been summoned to an orgy by Maxwell and Epstein at the age of 14, which had left her "frozen with fear".

During cross-examination yesterday, Ms Menninger said: "It is true that you do not recall Ghislaine ever touching you."

"That's not true," Jane replied.

On Tuesday, Jane said she did not tell anybody about any abuse because she was "terrified" and "felt gross and ashamed".

She also told jurors Epstein used sex toys on her "even though it hurt", and he and Maxwell fondled each other while "casually giggling" in front of the teenager.

Ms Menninger said: "You spoke to the government in December 2019 with your lawyers there and you told them at that time that you were not sure whether Maxwell ever touched you during these encounters."

"I don't recall," the witness replied.

"You told the Government you were not sure if Ghislaine ever kissed you."

"I don't recall."

"You told the Government you had no memory of Ghislaine being present when you claim Epstein engaged in any sexual contact, correct?"

"I don't recall."

"As you sit here today, you are not sure you were ever alone in a room with Ghislaine and Epstein, correct?"

"No."

Jane told the court it was correct to say Maxwell never watched her perform oral sex on Epstein.

Asked if she had come up with a memory of Maxwell being involved in any sexual encounters, Jane said: "I don't believe I have come up with a memory, no."

Before day three of her trial, Maxwell entered the courtroom and nodded at her sister Isabel and brother Kevin, sitting in the front row of the public gallery.

Wearing a charcoal grey jumper and a black face mask, she had separate conversations with both siblings as they leaned over the bench in front of them.

Maxwell embraced her counsel a number of times before the beginning of the court session and took a number of sips from her water bottle.

The full indictment against her lists six charges: conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts; enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts; conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity; transporting a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity; sex trafficking conspiracy; and sex trafficking of a minor.

Maxwell, who has been held in a US jail since her arrest in July last year, denies all charges.

If convicted she faces up to 70 years in prison.

Movies Re: EPSTEIN: Maxwell TRIAL-Pilot Flew Prince Andrew /TRUMP/ Bill Clinton & Kevin Spac

Epstein Pilot Testifies in Maxwell Trial He Flew Prince Andrew, Donald Trump and Bill Clinton More Than Once

He said he stayed in the ****pit for the majority of flights but would sometimes emerge to go to the bathroom or get coffee.

BBC News 3 DEC 2021





Mr Visoski flew for Epstein for over 25 years



Paedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein's long-time pilot has testified at the trial of Ghislaine Maxwell that he flew VIPs to luxury locations worldwide.

Larry Visoski, the first witness in Ms Maxwell's sex-trafficking trial, recalled flying Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump and Kevin Spacey.

Ms Maxwell denies the charges and says she is being used as a scapegoat for Epstein, who died in prison in 2019.

But prosecutors argue the pair were "partners in crime" in sex abuse.

Testimony given in court on Tuesday included harrowing details of the alleged abuse.

Ms Maxwell has been in a US jail since her arrest last year, and faces up to 80 years in prison if convicted.

Prosecutors say the British socialite, who also has US and French citizenship, recruited and groomed underage girls for her long-term companion Epstein to abuse.

Asked to describe Ms Maxwell's standing in Epstein's operations, Mr Visoski described her as "the number two".

"Epstein was the big number one," he told the New York court on Tuesday.

Mr Visoski served as Epstein's pilot for over 25 years. During his testimony, prosecutors showed the jurors photographs of Epstein's properties.

He testified that he had never seen any sexual activity during trips, although the ****pit door was always kept closed during flights on the plane nicknamed the "Lolita Express".

He also recalled flying Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who says she was sexually assaulted by Prince Andrew.

The Queen's 61-year-old second son has consistently denied the allegation.

Asked if he remembered Ms Giuffre, Mr Visoski said: "Yes. A shorter woman with dirty blonde hair. She didn't look young. I mean, whatever you decipher is the definition of young. But she was a woman in my category."

Asked to describe Ms Maxwell's relationship to Epstein he said it was "more personal than business".

"I wouldn't characterise it as romantic," he added.

Another woman testifying under the pseudonym "Jane" told the court that Ms Maxwell had frequently been in the room with her when she had sexual relations with Epstein while just 14 years old.

Jane told the court she had met Epstein and Ms Maxwell while attending summer camp in Michigan 1994. He was introduced to her as a wealthy donor who offered scholarships to pupils.

Epstein had promised to fund her education but instead abused her, prosecutors said. She testified that her father had died one year earlier from cancer and her family was struggling financially at the time.

In graphic detail, she described her alleged abuse and said that Ms Maxwell, who she said was present for much of it, was "very casual" about the encounters.

Jane said that Ms Maxwell would talk to her about sex, and that she soon began visiting Epstein's home every week or two.

She said her first sexual experience came when they were having a discussion about her future.

She said that Epstein led her from his office to his pool house, then pulled down his pants and started masturbating.

"I was frozen in fear, I had never seen a penis before," the witness said. "I was terrified and felt gross and like I felt ashamed."

It was not long after that she had her first sexual experience with Ms Maxwell, she testified, saying it took place at Epstein's home in Palm Beach, Florida.

Jane said that the defendant and Epstein had her follow them to his bedroom. They took their clothes off and "started sort of fondling each other and kind of casually giggling", she said.

"I was just standing there and he asked me to take my top off and then their hands [were] everywhere and Jeffrey proceeded to masturbate and Ghislaine was rubbing him and kissing him and fondling," she continued.

She added that she travelled with Epstein and Ms Maxwell about 10 times, mainly between his homes in New York and New Mexico while she was between the ages of 14 and 16.

Jane also described "orgies" with other participants, and described feeling pain during the alleged encounters.

Both Epstein and Ms Maxwell would brag about their connections, including the famous people that they knew, she said.

Jane is the first of four accusers expected to testify at trial.

Ms Maxwell has pleaded not guilty to eight charges of sex trafficking and other crimes.

The allegations at trial cover the period 1994 to 2004. Prosecutors allege Ms Maxwell was a "right-hand" partner for Epstein, helping to groom vulnerable teenage girls as young as 14 for abuse at his luxurious residences.

They described her as "the lady of the house" who "helped normalise abusive sexual conduct".

Update re: EPSTEIN & Maxwell Had SEX at Queens' Balmoral estate

Twin Torpedo Sex Toys Shown in Court After Victim Testifies in ‘Madam’ Case

THE sex trafficking trial of Jeffrey's Epstein's alleged "madam" Ghislaine Maxwell has started, and on Friday new evidence was examined in the courtroom including a massage table and “Twin Torpedo” sex toy.

The table, which was reportedly seized from Epstein's Florida estate, was briefly looked at by a police officer who took the stand.


The Sun UK & Ireland 5 DEC 2021.




Assistant US Attorney Maurene Comey asked the officer questions about a search warrant that was carried out at the Palm Beach estate in October 2005.

Maxwell reportedly showed no reaction as the table was examined.

This comes after the first accuser, identified only as Jane, took the stand earlier this week, alleging that Epstein asked for frequent massages during which sex toys would be used.

One Palm Beach police offer alleged that the "Twin Torpedo" sex toys were found in a closet in Epstein's estate.


HOUSEKEEPER CONFIRMED MEETING VIRGINIA ROBERTS

Former staff member Juan Alessi said that two girls, who appeared underage, also frequently stayed at the mansion.

He told the court one was Virginia Roberts - who alleges she was forced to sleep with Prince Andrew three times - and the alleged victim in the trial who uses the pseudonym 'Jane.'

Asked how old Jane was when he first met her, Alessi said: "Appeared 14 or 15. She was beautiful, beautiful eyes, long brunette hair, very pleasant.

"Three times she was there with her mother. Then, without her mother. Many times."


EPSTEIN'S PROPERTY EMPIRE

Epstein's real estate catalog included Little St James, his private island in the US Virgin Islands, worth about £50 million.

Epstein also owned the £14 million neighbouring island, Great St James, as well a £12 million mansion in Florida.

Other properties included an 8,000-acre, £21 million ranch in New Mexico, a £10 million Paris apartment, and a £57 million seven-storey townhouse on New York's Upper East Side.


EPSTEIN'S AIRCRAFT FLEET

Epstein’s aircraft fleet included a Hawker Siddeley 125, a Gulfstream G2B and a helicopter.

There was also a Boeing 727, which is more than 130ft long, that was dubbed the “Lolita Express” amid claims he used it to fly underage girls around the world.

That plane was fitted with an office dubbed “the red room” because of its furniture, a master bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a lounge area with a huge round sofa, plus a “full decked-out” kitchen.


'THREE MASSAGES A DAY'

On Thursday, former Epstein housekeeper Juan Alessi was asked "how many massages would Mr Epstein get a day?"

He replied: "Before I left, three a day. I called whoever they told me to call."

The prosecution then asked: "Did the phone books we discussed have names for massage in them?

Alessi answered: "Yes. "

Prosecution: "Did you see [alleged victim] Jane's name in it?"

Mr Alessi: "Yes. The books were updated twice a year."


SKETCH OF GHISLAINE MAXWELL SKETCHING ARTIST





A court sketch of Ghislaine Maxwell in court shared by a Twitter user appeared to show the British socialite drawing the sketch artist as she was drawn herself.


MAXWELL SEEN SKETCHING COURT ARTIST DURING HEARING


A court sketch artist in the Maxwell trial has told of the bizarre moment the socialite turned around and began to draw her.

Illustrator Elizabeth Williams, who has been sketching people in court for 40 years, was at a pre-trial hearing in November when Maxwell began staring at her while drawing.

Speaking of the first time she spotted the English heiress sketching her, Ms Williams exclusively told The Sun: “It was the first thing she did when she got into court.

“It was like she didn’t think anyone would notice. She stared right at us, and it was definitely an odd moment.

“Maybe she was trying to psyche us out, or perhaps she was just missing human contact. But whatever the reason, it didn’t creep us out."


WHO FLEW ON THE ‘LOLITA EXPRESS’? PART TWO

Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey flew to Africa on the Lolita Express in 2002 as part of a project to raise awareness on the Aids crisis and poverty.

Comedian Chris Tucker was also part of the group, including Clinton and Spacey, who flew to Africa on a five-day humanitarian trip in 2002.

Flight logs reveal that Naomi Campbell also travelled on Epstein’s plane in 2002.

Epstein’s lawyer Alan Dershowitz took trips on the jet in the late 1990s, flight records show.


WHO FLEW ON THE ‘LOLITA EXPRESS’?

Former Epstein pilot Lawrence Visoski testified that former President Donald Trump was aboard Epstein’s distinctive Gulf Stream plane.

The Sun reported in 2019 that Prince Andrew flew on a *private jet with Epstein and his alleged 17-year-old sex slave Virginia Roberts.

Brit socialite Ghislaine Maxwell travelled on the Lolita Express on a number of occasions, flight logs show.

According to flight logs obtained by Fox News in 2016, former US president Bill Clinton was a passenger on the jet.


WHAT WAS THE ‘LOLITA EXPRESS’?

Jeffrey Epstein was alleged to have used the plane to court underage girls and fly them between his residences across the US.

The luxury Boeing 727 aircraft was owned by Epstein, though what exactly happened on the flights remains a close guarded secret.

Victims of Epstein say he organised orgies on board the three-engine commercial jet.

The luxury aircraft boasted deluxe furnishings, a spacious galley, expansive cabin lounge and a master bedroom.

The pilot of the plane reportedly undertook around 1,000 flights during his time flying Epstein and others.


ALLEGED VICTIM MET TRUMP AT MAR-A-LAGO


Jeffrey Epstein introduced a 14-year-old alleged sex abuse victim to Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort, Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial heard this week.

The court was also told she once participated in a beauty pageant sponsored by the former president.

Maxwell’s first accuser – who appeared under the pseudonym “Jane” – took the stand during the ongoing trial in New York.

During cross examination, she was asked by Maxwell’s lawyers if Epstein had ever introduced her to Trump.

She agreed she had and claims she was driven to Mar-a-Lago by Epstein in a dark green car when she was 14.


MYSTERY OF ‘HIDDEN CAMERAS’ AT EPSTEIN HOME

It has long been reported and rumoured that Epstein and Maxwell had a complex networks of cameras and recording devices.

The multi-millionaire is alleged to have had these set up at his many homes around the world, and its speculated it could have been part of a blackmail plot.

However, the existence of any footage from these cameras have never emerged.

Details about this could emerge during the court case as part of victim's testimony, with alleged victim Annie Farmer's sister Maria making such claims.

Maria is not part of the case against Maxwell, but also alleges she was abused by the duo.

Farmer claims large rooms at Epstein's sprawling Zorro Ranch were for housing computers and video equipment for a surveillance network.


'YOU SEE NOTHING, HEAR NOTHING, SAY NOTHING'

Employees at Epstein's Florida mansion were told to "be cautious of voice levels and noise", according to a 58-page handbook which an employee claims he was given.

The book, which was submitted into evidence and was written by a "Countess", the court heard, was released Friday showing yet more strict rules staff members were told to follow.

Employees were also told: "Remember that you see nothing, hear nothing, say nothing, except to answer a question directed at you."


WHAT ARE THE ALLEGATIONS SURROUNDING GEORGE CLOONEY?

Ghislaine Maxwell is accused of boasting about performing a sex act on George Clooney in a toilet.

Virginia Giuffre made the allegation against Maxwell, in a manuscript of her memoirs released by a New York court.

Giuffre claimed Maxwell boasted about it during a globe-trotting trip they both made in 2001 which culminated in Giuffre meeting Prince Andrew for the first time in London.

It has not been reported when the alleged incident between Maxwell and Clooney may have taken place, nor has there been any report of Clooney being involved in any wrong doing in connection to the Jeffrey Epstein crimes.


IS THERE A GAG ORDER?

There is no gag order, according to Newsweek.


Rumors have circulated online that members of the press have been barred from the courtroom by the judge.

Only individuals inside the courtroom will be able to watch the trial, per federal rules.

Members of the press are among those who are guaranteed access to the trial.


WHO HAS BEEN CONNECTED TO EPSTEIN AND MAXWELL?

Notable politicians, billionaires, and celebrities have been connected to Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.

Some of them include Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, Bill Gates, and Woody Allen.

Prince Andrew has been accused of sexual assault by Virginia Giuffre. A judge dismissed criminal charges in 2015, but Giuffre is pursuing a sexual assault lawsuit.

The case is scheduled to go on well into the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee year in 2022.



THE CHARGES

The exact charges against Maxwell are:
Conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts
Enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts
Conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity
Transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity
Sex trafficking conspiracy
Sex trafficking of a minor


She also faces two other charges of perjury over allegations she lied in a deposition in a separate civil suit, but these will be tried separately.

She has pleaded not guilty to all charges against her.






EPSTEIN 'KEPT SCHOOLGIRL OUTFITS OUTSIDE MASSAGE ROOM'


Jeffrey Epstein kept “small” schoolgirl outfits near his massage room and photos of young girls outside of his bedroom, a court heard Friday.

Prosecutors at Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex trafficking trial want the pictures and outfits to be used in evidence to show the millionaire's “interest in underage girls”.

A portable, inflatable massage table - reportedly green in colour - was also entered as evidence.

Maxwell, 59, is accused of preying on vulnerable young girls and luring them to massage rooms to be molested by her former lover between 1994 and 2004.


JURY SHOWN POLICE VIDEOTAPE FROM EPSTEIN'S FLORIDA HOME

On Friday, the jury at Maxwell's trial was shown footage from a 2005 raid at Epstein's Palm Beach home.

The footage shows the property decorated with nude photos and paintings of young women.

Federal lawyers claim the decor is proof of a sexualized atmosphere encouraged by Maxwell.


EPSTEIN VISITED BILL CLINTON 17 TIMES AT THE WHITE HOUSE


Jeffrey Epstein visited Bill Clinton at the White House at least 17 times while he was president, visitor logs have revealed.

The pedo visited the Executive Mansion during Clinton's first three years in office.

The documents also showed that the financier was invited by Clinton's senior advisers and aides and that he spent most of his visits in the West Wing.


‘JANE’S’ TESTIMONY, PART TWO

Jane previously told how the British socialite was "in the room" when much of the abuse occurred - including when she was just 14.

She repeatedly said she could either not recall or claimed there were errors in the initial transcription of her comments when speaking to prosecutors in 2019.

It appears a key part of Maxwell's defense lawyer's strategy is attempting to suggest the victim's memories have changed over time.


'JANE'S' TESTIMONY

Maxwell's first accuser "Jane" took the stand on Wednesday on day three of the trial.

She claimed Maxwell fondled her as Epstein pleasured himself before the twisted financier abused her with sex toys.

Jane also told the court that an "orgy" took place in the mansion's massage room on multiple occasions and both Maxwell and Epstein allegedly took part.


HOW LONG COULD MAXWELL FACE IN PRISON?


If convicted on all counts, Maxwell could face up to 80 years in prison.

Depending on how the trial goes and whether she is convicted, she could spend the rest of her life behind bars.


PROCEEDINGS WILL RUN THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS

With a trial expected to last about six weeks, it’s not likely we will see a conviction before the end of the holidays this year.

It is expected that Ghislaine Maxwell will turn 60 behind bars.

Her birthday falls on Christmas Day.


MAXWELL DENIES ALL CHARGES

Prosecutors argue Maxwell "served up" young girls to Epstein as part of a pyramid scheme of abuse.

She is accused of recruiting girls as young as 14 after promising them "the world."

She would allegedly walk the victims into Epstein's lair and then watch as he molested them - and sometimes even joined in.

However, her lawyers deny all charges against her, argue she is being made a "scapegoat" for Epstein's crimes, and have painted the alleged victims as in it for the cash.


WHERE IS GHISLAINE MAXWELL NOW?

She has been detained since July 2020 at a Brooklyn detention centre, where she has complained about her alleged ill-treatment.

Her trial began
29 November, 2021.

She has been charged with six counts of sex trafficking and perjury in relation to her relationship with pedophile financier Epstein.

Question Mark re: EPSTEIN & Maxwell Had SEX at Queens' Balmoral estate

Why Prosecutors are Targeting The Mystery of Ghislaine Maxwells' Extraordinary Wealth



Mystery has always surrounded the source of Ghislaine Maxwells' Vast Wealth.




The Telegraph 8 DEC 2021.






Ghislaine Maxwells' wealth linked to Epstein in court



Even the heiress herself “cannot remember off the top of her head just how many millions of dollars she has”, a court heard earlier this year.


On Monday, the trial into her alleged sex trafficking went part of the way to clearing things up.

In three transactions over the course of eight years, Epstein directly wired more than $30 million to the British socialite, the jury heard.

She used at least $7 million to buy a helicopter.


But why were Ms Maxwell's financial dealings being dragged through a sex abuse trial?





Epstein and Maxwell pictures in a presentation by police



Prosecutors are seeking to prove that Ms Maxwell was so close to Epstein that she must be complicit in his crimes. Lawyers told the jury on Monday that the vast sums of money she received from Epstein – still only a fraction of his estimated $630m fortune – showed what an integral figure Ms Maxwell was in his life.

Others have gone further, and suggest Ms Maxwell was paid to groom underage girls for Epstein to sexually abuse.

“So many have asked me: why would Ghislaine do it? Why would a woman bring girls to her boyfriend for him to sexually abuse?” asked Lisa Bloom, a lawyer for a number of Epstein’s victims.

“The prosecution theory is pretty simple: money. Shocking amounts of it. What a life she lived with Epstein's vast wealth. Here's but one small example,” she said, referring to the $18.5 transfer from Epstein to Ms Maxwell. Ms Bloom is not involved in the current trial.

Ms Maxwell denies all charges. Her legal team, for whom she has paid roughly $7m since 2020, has so far sought to discredit the testimony of alleged victims in court, suggesting they are seeking financial compensation.







Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein in Cambridge, MA, in 2004




Following her father Robert’s death in 1991 Ghislaine Maxwell boarded a Concorde and moved to America, reportedly living off an annual income of £80,000 from a trust fund established in Liechtenstein by her father.

But as time passed her wealth rapidly grew – and with it the mystery surrounding where it all came from.

Aside from the money wired directly from Epstein, there are other clues to where her reserves come from.


Earlier this year, she sold her Belgravia home for £1.75 million to help fund her expensive legal team.


The white mews house with red front door is where Prince Andrew was pictured with his arm around Virginia Roberts Giuffre. The Belgravia home, near Hyde Park was reportedly purchased by a property developer.

Her five-story Manhattan townhouse was sold in 2016 for $15 million by a company that used the address of Epstein’s New York office.

And in 2020 Maxwell was arrested at a $1 million luxury four-bedroom New Hampshire house that was bought the year before in cash.


Prosecutors said she had been living on the 156-acre property, which was acquired in an all-cash purchase, “through a carefully anonymised LLC”.

A listing on property website Zillow described the house as an “amazing retreat for the nature lover who also wants total privacy”.




Property which is believed to be the home of Ghislaine Maxwell in Bradford, New Hampshire


In an attempt to prove Epstein paid Ms Maxwell millions directly, a JP Morgan executive was called to the witness box to verify bank statements.


The couple appeared to have bank accounts linked to New York, Palm Beach, Florida, and the US Virgin Islands, an infamous tax haven.

Bank statements shown for the first time detailed wire transfers of $18.3 million in 1999, $5 million in 2002 and $7.4 million in 2007, in evidence that offered an extraordinary insight into how the heiress financed her lavish lifestyle.

The transfers showed Epstein, the late financier, cashing out shares and wiring money to accounts in the name of both Ms Maxwell and “Air Ghislaine Inc.”


One payment, in June 2007, came from an account linked to Epstein in the US Virgin Islands and was transferred from Ms Maxwell’s personal account with JP Morgan. From there it was sent to a company called Air Ghislaine Inc. That company then purchased a green Sikorsky S76C helicopter and downpayment on an “executive finish”.

Following her arrest in July 2020, Ms Maxwell, 59, who has spent the last 15 months in a federal prison in Brooklyn, put up a staggering some $28 million in bond to secure her release – dwarfing the figure put up by Ponzi scheme banker Bernie Madoff and thought to be one of the highest ever bond packages offered in the US.


“At a basic level, the defence argument is that she cannot remember off the top of her head just how many millions of dollars she has,” assistant US Attorney Alison Moe said at one of Ms Maxwell’s bail hearings as she criticised Ms Maxwell’s lack of transparency around her wealth. The prosecutor said Ms Maxwell’s claims to have less than $1 million in the bank and no monthly income was “implausible.”

The US government said they had identified more than 15 different bank accounts associated with the heiress from 2016 with balances ranging from hundreds of thousands of dollars to more than $20 million.

After the date of the last transfer, the government previously revealed it had information that, between 2007 and 2011, more than $20 million was transferred from offshore accounts associated with Jeffrey Epstein to several associated with Ms Maxwell.

Millions were later transferred back.


The transactions themselves, however, could yet play a crucial role in the 'trial of the century'.

Update re: EPSTEIN: Ghislaine & Brother Think He was Murdered in Prison

Ghislaine Maxwell: Ex-boyfriend of Maxwell Accuser Backs up Statement

The ex-boyfriend of an accuser in Ghislaine Maxwell's sex crimes trial has given testimony that she performed sex acts on paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.


BBC News 1O DEC 2021.




Jurors were shown a photo of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell at the Queen's Balmoral estate


He told the court on Wednesday that his ex-girlfriend, Carolyn, "worked for Jeffrey" between the ages of 14 and 18.

He would often drive Carolyn and other underage female friends to Epstein's mansion, he said. They would return with hundred dollar bills in hand.

Ms Maxwell, 59, has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

She is accused of grooming teenage girls for abuse by the late Epstein between 1994 and 2004 and faces up to 80 years in prison if convicted on counts of sex trafficking and perjury.

Her defence lawyers have said she is being scapegoated for Epstein's crimes, but prosecutors argue they were "partners in crime".

Epstein died in 2019 in jail while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges. His death was ruled a suicide.

On Wednesday, the ex-boyfriend, identified by the pseudonym Shawn, told the court he had been present when their mutual friend Virginia Roberts (now Virginia Giuffre) first told Carolyn of the money-making opportunity, and was occasionally present when Ms Maxwell called to schedule massage sessions.

Although Shawn said he never met Epstein or Ms Maxwell, he further corroborated Carolyn's testimony earlier in the trial that she only called the latter by her last name, suggesting she "didn't have the reading ability" to say Ms Maxwell's first name, Ghislaine.

"She was a child," he said of his partner at the time. She "only had two jobs ever. She worked at Arby's [US fast food chain] and she worked for Jeffrey".

The woman known in court as Carolyn, the third of four accusers expected to testify in Ms Maxwell's trial, broke down in tears under cross-examination late on Tuesday as defence lawyers suggested her drug addiction may have influenced her testimony.

Never-before-seen photos show Epstein-Maxwell bond

The court also heard from David Rodgers, a former long-time pilot for Epstein, who detailed trips from his log book under questioning from prosecutors.

Mr Rodgers said Ms Giuffre, one of Epstein's most vocal accusers, flew with him 32 times in the early 2000s, while another accuser Jane - who testified last week - was aboard at least four times.

He also provided details of trips to and from Traverse City, Michigan in the summer of 1994. Jane has alleged she met Epstein as a 14-year-old, at a summer arts camp, in the area.

On Wednesday, prosecutors also showed jurors photos of Ms Maxwell with Epstein relaxing at Balmoral, the British royal family's Scottish estate.

The undated photo appears to have been taken in 1999, when Prince Andrew reportedly invited the couple to stay at Balmoral in the Scottish Highlands.

Ms Maxwell - who has British, American and French citizenship - has been in a US jail since her arrest last year.

Ghislaine Maxwell Arrest

3 July 2020
British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell is arrested in New Hampshire and accused of helping Epstein groom his victims.


Charges accuse her of befriending girls as young as 14 and enticing them into having sexual relations with Epstein. One alleged victim told the BBC that she “controlled the girls - she was like Madam”.
Prosecutors claim the abuse occurred in locations around the world, including Ms Maxwell’s London home.
She pleads not guilty. A judge denies her bail, calling her a flight risk.

Update re: EPSTEINs SECRET Deal With Victim & Prince Andrew May Lose Royal Title

Ghislaine Maxwell Believes Epstein Was Murdered in Prison, Brother Says

Ghislaine and Brother Ian Think He Was Killed in Prison

BBC News 14 DEC 2021.







Ghislaine Maxwell likely believes that Jeffrey Epstein was murdered, her brother Ian Maxwell said during an interview on Saturday.






In the 24-minute appearance on The Spectator’s Americano podcast, Mr Maxwell rallied behind his sister as he compared theories around the death of the convicted sex offender to the case of his own father, the media tycoon Robert Maxwell, who died in 1991.

"I don’t buy a lot of the conspiracy theories at all. It so happens that one of the conspiracy theories is about my father, that he was murdered.

"Of all of my siblings Ghislaine is the only one who happens to believe that he [Robert Maxwell] was murdered.

"And I would venture to believe that she may also think that Epstein was murdered,” he said.

Epstein, convicted in 2008 by a Florida state court of procuring a child for prostitution and of soliciting a prostitute, was found dead in his jail cell in August 2019 while awaiting trial on further charges. While the medical examiner ruled the death a suicide, his death had sparked numerous conspiracy theories including that he was murdered.

Meanwhile, the body of billionaire press baron Robert Maxwell was discovered floating in the Atlantic Ocean in 1991 after he fell overboard from his yacht, the Lady Ghislaine. While an inquest recorded the cause of death to be heart attack and accidental drowning, speculation about the incident remains rife, including whether it was a suicide or murder.

In the podcast, Mr Maxwell also recounted his only meeting with Epstein in 1996 during a lunch with his sister.

"I didn’t warm to him,” said Mr Maxwell. “He was a bit of a cagey character, clearly intelligent, had a certain charisma. But he was somebody who took things from you rather than gave things back. Not a very clubbable man, not a man you want to go and have a drink with."

Mr Maxwell also defended his sister Ghislaine over the New York trial she is currently facing.

Ms Maxwell has pleaded not guilty to eight counts of sex trafficking and other charges for her alleged role in recruiting and grooming four teenagers for Epstein to abuse between 1994 and 2004, with the prosecution resting its case on Friday after two weeks.

Ghislaine Maxwell Trial: What Strategy Will Her Defence Team Take?

The trial of Ghislaine Maxwell is set to restart in New York.


16 Dec 2021 Channel 4 News


Appearing for the prosecution, four women have already testified that the socialite had groomed them into under-age sexual encounters with her friend and former lover, financier Jeffrey Epstein.

Ms Maxwell herself is not expected to take the stand, so what strategy can her defence team take on behalf of their client?

Maxwell Tells Judge She Will Not Testify in Sex Trafficking Trial

Ghislaine Maxwell, a close confidante to deceased financier Jeffrey Epstein, told a judge on Friday that she would not be testifying in her sex trafficking trial.


The Telegraph 18 DEC 2021.





"Your honor, the government has not proven the case beyond a reasonable doubt and so there is no need for me to testify," the British socialite said, according to Reuters.

Maxwell faces six charges in connection to allegedly helping facilitating a sex trafficking scheme with Epstein. She faces up to 70 years in prison, and she has pleaded not guilty to all of the charges. Epstein was found dead in his jail cell in 2019 while awaiting his own trial.

It is considered a risky move for defendants to testify in their own trials given that it can expose them to vulnerabilities when they are being cross-examined by prosecutors.

In U.S. criminal trials, defendants do not have to take the witness stand, according to Reuters; however, some defendants in recent high-profile cases, including Kyle Rittenhouse and ex-officer Kim Potter, have chosen to do so.

Closing arguments are anticipated to begin on Monday, according to the news outlet.

Part of Maxwell's defense has rested on the idea that the four women who alleged that they suffered sexual abuse by Epstein may have given into "false memories," according to a psychologist's testimony.

"False memories ... can be very vivid, detailed. People can be confident about them, people can be emotional about them, even though they're false," Elizabeth Loftus, a psychologist and professor at the University of California, Irvine, noted.

However, prosecutors allege that Epstein and Maxwell acted as "partners in crime. Assistant U.S. Attorney Lara Pomerantz claimed that "the defendant and Epstein lured their victims with a promise of a bright future, only to sexually exploit them."
