Prince Andrew brutally ‘touched girls’ during his stay in his friend’s so-called ‘Paedo Island’ home, convicted child abuse officer Jeffrey Epstein, a prosecutor alleges.
Denise George, Attorney General of the US Virgin Islands, where Andrew was a frequent visitor to the private island of Little St James in Epstein, claimed that the Duke of York never tried to protect his activity from the shame financier’s staff.
Mrs. George, who is taking legal action against the £ 500 million estate of Epstein to prevent his lawyers from “hiding” his property, told the magazine Vanity Fair: “An employee told me that he was Prince Andrew on a balcony at Little St James touching girls saw straight in the open air. He said he remembered that he was walking up to him and said, “Good morning, Your Highness.”
The claims raise even more doubts about the Prince’s judgment in remaining friends with Epstein, even after the billionaire admitted having purchased a minor girl for prostitution in a controversial plea of 2007.
An American woman, Virginia Roberts, has accused Epstein of having ‘forced’ her three times to have sex with Andrew, the first in London in 2001 when she was 17 and the following year in New York and during an orgy in the house from the financier on the island.
Prince Andrew has strongly denied all her claims, with Buckingham Palace as follows: ‘It is emphatically denied that the duke had any form of sexual contact or relationship with Virginia Roberts. Any statement to the contrary is false and unfounded. “

In court cases, Ms. 37, now bearing her married name Giuffre, said about her alleged island meeting with the Prince: “Epstein, Andy, about eight other girls and I had sex together. The other girls all seemed to be younger than 18 and did not really speak English. Epstein laughed at the fact that they could not really communicate and said they were the easiest girls to deal with. “
During his now notorious interview with Newsnight last November, Andrew denied that he had ever met Roberts despite being photographed with his arm around her waist.
Epstein spent his life in prison last summer, just a few weeks after the prosecutors of New York announced that he would have multiple charges of sex with children.
In the interview with Vanity Fair on Friday, Ms. George said that former Epstein employees should be exempt from confidentiality agreements they had concluded with him.
She claims that lawyers who act for his legacy have said that they will only compensate his victims if they agree not to prosecute anyone else for his crimes.

“These are victims who have been raped by other people. They try to protect their friends and it’s not fair to the victims, “she said. “
US prosecutors have vowed to continue investigating the alleged “conspirators” of Epstein, including Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite, and his alleged “madam.”

Geoffrey Berman, American attorney for the southern district of New York, who leads the American case, has accused Andrew of not cooperating with the FBI. He disputes that claim.
Mrs. George’s comments come at the end of another bruising week for Andrew, who is celebrating his 60th birthday on Wednesday.
Last Thursday, another of his billionaire friends, Canadian fashion magnate Peter Nygard, 78, was accused of raping and sexually abusing 12 women, some as young as 14, in his home in the Bahamas.
Although there is no suggestion that Andrew was aware of Nygard’s alleged crimes, he was photographed at home in 2000 during a vacation with ex-wife Sarah Ferguson and their daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.
Last night Buckingham Palace declined to comment.
