PRINCE Andrew is considered a ‘person of interest’ in the investigation into paedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual abuse, it is claimed.
Investigators want to interview Andrew, the Queen second son, about his friendship with Epstein as part of their inquiry into possible co-conspirators, a source familiar with the U.S inquiry told Reuters.
As a person of interest he is viewed at least as a potential witness.
But according to a lawyer representing several of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims, the legal team are “sure” Andrew’s lawyers will try to claim that he has diplomatic immunity and therefore cannot be prosecuted.
Speaking of Virginia Giuffre’s lawsuit against Andrew over claims he raped her, Spencer Kuvin told the Mirror “If the Duke engages in the case at all, his legal team will undoubtedly file a motion to dismiss the complaint on numerous different grounds.”
“For sure, they would argue diplomatic immunity. They would have a strong case.”
