Following reports that Scotland Yard interviewed Prince Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein accused Virginia Giuffre following her decision to file a lawsuit against the Prince of New York, the Metropolitan Police made a decision on Sunday not to take further action and drop their investigation into Giuffre’s allegations.
The decision may come as a surprise to some after Met commissioner Dame Cressida Dick said in an interview that “nothing is above the law” and that “she asked my team to look again. the material ” – a reference to the allegations against Prince Andrew by Giuffre.
Giuffre’s U.S. attorney Sigrid McCawley said the Sunday Records that “Given the clear and compelling evidence involving Prince Andrew, the Metropolitan police should also open an investigation into it and uphold their statement that there is nothing above the law.”
The Met said that while its investigation is “complete”, it will continue to “work with other law enforcement agencies that have taken the lead in investigating matters related to Jeffrey Epstein”.
However, while the Met says its investigation is “complete,” it will continue to “work with other law enforcement agencies to take the lead in investigating matters related to Jeffrey Epstein.”
Giuffre’s lawsuit accused Andrew of abusing Giuffre at Ghislaine Maxwell’s social home in London, as well as the properties Epstein owned.
To be sure, the Prince has a “perfect and categorical” denial of having sex with Giuffre. Buckingham Palace also called his claims “false and without foundation.”
The Met’s Dick revealed last summer that there have been two previous reviews of the Prince Andrew matter, making it difficult for authorities to identify two issues: whether there is evidence that a crime has been committed, and whether the UK is the right place to file a crime.
While the issue has been dropped in the UK, Prince Andrew is still considered a “person of interest” in the US, with Epstein’s alleged “madam” Ghislaine Maxwell, facing an upcoming US settlement.
