UK: The allegations of sexual assault against Prince Andrew are being investigated by British police. Virginia Giuffre filed a civil claim in the United States alleging Prince Andrew of sexual abuse. Britain’s largest police unit says it has completed an investigation into the allegations.
After Giuffre filed her allegation alleging that Queen Elizabeth II’s second son sexually molested her while she was a teenager, MPS chief Cressida Dick remarked in August that “no one is above the law.”
“MPS officers reviewed a document released in August 2021 as part of a US legal case as a matter of routine,” the Met stated in a statement late Sunday.
“This review is complete, and we will take no further action,” it said, adding that it would continue to collaborate with other law enforcement authorities handling the investigation.
The Metropolitan Police Service says it investigated a Channel 4 News report alleging that British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell trafficked, exploited, and mistreated women and girls in the UK.
It stated, “This review is concluded, and no further action will be taken.”
According to Giuffre, the late US financier Jeffrey Epstein exploited her on a daily basis and lent her out for sex to “important men.”
She said that Prince Andrew abused her at the London house of Maxwell, Epstein’s former girlfriend, who is currently on remand in jail in New York awaiting prosecution.
Andrew, a divorced father of two and a former Royal Navy helicopter pilot, was forced to leave frontline royal duties in late 2019 after justifying his friendship with Epstein in a televised interview.
Andrew’s lawyers were granted access to a copy of a 2009 settlement that they say will negate Giuffre’s civil case last week by a US judge.
