Woman willing to testify against Prince Andrew in Virginia Giuffre civil lawsuit
Jan 19, 2022: According to a report by The Guardian, a woman who may have seen Prince Andrew with Virginia Giuffre at a London nightclub 20 years ago is “willing” to give testimony in Giuffre’s civil lawsuit against the royal, whom she accuses of sexual abuse, the witness’s lawyer said.
“I am proud to represent Shukri Walker, who has bravely stepped forward as a witness and encourages others who may have information to do so as well,” the lawyer Lisa Bloom said in an email.
“She is willing to do the deposition Virginia Giuffre’s team is seeking.”
Giuffre’s lawyers noted that Walker has said she saw the royal “with a young girl around the time that plaintiff contends Prince Andrew abused her in London after visiting Tramp Nightclub”.
Giuffre’s lawyers are also seeking testimony from Shukri Walker, who they say has been quoted in news reports talking about how she saw Andrew at the London nightclub Tramp during the period in question with a young woman who might have been Giuffre.
Epstein, a convicted sex offender and financier, was arrested in July 2019 on charges of sexually abusing girls under the age of 14. He committed suicide a month later in a Manhattan jail while awaiting trial. In December in New York, Maxwell, now 60, was found guilty of sex trafficking and related counts that he brought girls to Epstein for sexual abuse.
Recent court filings in Giuffre’s now-settled lawsuit against Maxwell have shown that more information might soon be unsealed. In a 12 January filing, an attorney for Maxwell said she was withdrawing her opposition to the unsealing of names mentioned in Giuffre’s litigation, men currently referred to as “John Does”.
