VIRGINIA L. Giuffre, an alleged sex trafficking victim of the late Jeffrey Epstein, filed a lawsuit in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York on August 9, 2021, against Prince Andrew.
The civil lawsuit brought by Giuffre who is represented by her lawyer, the renown David Boies, states,
“Prince Andrew abused Plaintiff on separate occasions when she was under the age of 18 years old. On one occasion, Prince Andrew sexually abused Plaintiff in London at Maxwell’s home. During this encounter, Epstein, Maxwell, and Prince Andrew forced Plaintiff, a child, to have sexual intercourse with Prince Andrew against her will”
The lawsuit explains, “Plaintiff became a victim of sex trafficking and repeated sexual abuse after Maxwell recruited her into Epstein’s sex-trafficking operation when Plaintiff was working at the Mar-A-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida.”
The lawsuit also states, “In his Black Book, Epstein had at least 12 different contact numbers listed for Prince Andrew.”
The alleged sexual abuse of Virginia Giuffre took place in London, on Epstein’s private island, and as stated, “Between 2000 and 2002, Epstein sexually abused Plaintiff at numerous locations including his mansion in this District, at 9 East 71st Street, New York, New York 10021.”
Prince Andrew has denied the allegations and even denies meeting Giuffre, despite a photo existing of them posing together with Maxwell in the background, filed as evidence. The lawsuit also reveals, “Prince Andrew was photographed with Epstein in Central Park and stayed at Epstein’s New York City mansion.”
Even though Giuffre asks for a jury trial, it is more than likely that Prince Andrew will settle the matter privately for a what might be a very large sum as stated for “extreme emotional distress, humiliation, fear, psychological trauma, loss of dignity and self-esteem, and invasion of her privacy.” .
