Women Demand Prince Andrew Testify in U.S. Court About Epstein Sex Trafficking

HeadlineDec 03, 2019

Multiple women are demanding Prince Andrew testify in U.S. court about the sex trafficking that he witnessed in the home of serial pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, as an American woman who says she was trafficked by Epstein and forced to have sex with Prince Andrew when she was 17 gave an explosive interview on the BBC. This is Virginia Giuffre.

Virginia Giuffre: “It was a wicked time in my life. It was a really scary time in my life. I had just been abused by a member of a royal family. So when you talk about these chains, you know, yeah, I wasn’t chained to a sink, but these powerful people were my chains. I didn’t know what could happen. And I just — I didn’t — I couldn’t comprehend how the highest levels of the government and powerful people were allowing this to happen, not only allowing it to happen, but participating in it.”

Giuffre says she was first lured into Epstein’s sex trafficking operation while she was working as a locker room attendant at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. Prince Andrew has rejected Giuffre’s account. He has been forced to step back from all royal duties.
