Jeffrey Epstein victims’ lawyer Gloria Allred says Prince Andrew should now testify to the FBI after BBC interview and asks how did he not spot underage girls at the paedophile’s homes

  • Gloria Allred called on Duke of York to be quizzed under oath by US investigators
  • Among the victims that Ms Allred represents is Andrew accuser Virginia Roberts
  • Prince completely refuted any wrongdoing in a BBC interview with Emily Maitlis
  • But he was condemned for showing a lack of remorse over Epstein friendship

Prince Andrew should now testify to the FBI following his bombshell BBC interview, the lawyer representing some of Jeffrey Epstein victims has claimed.

Gloria Allred called on the Duke of York to be quizzed under oath by US investigators as they probe the billionaire paedophile and accusations he sex trafficked girls.

Among the victims that Ms Allred represents is Virginia Roberts, who claims she had sex with Andrew on three occasions, including twice when she was underage.

The Duke completely refuted any wrongdoing in a BBC interview with Emily Maitlis on Saturday night.

But he was widely condemned by critics who claimed he showed a unsympathetic tone and a lack of remorse for his friendship with Epstein.

Speaking to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid on Good Morning Britain, Ms Allred criticised the Prince for a lack of empathy for Epstein’s victims. 

She said: ‘I would like Prince Andrew to really feel what these victims was suffered, because he seemed to hardly mention the victims and how they were harmed.

‘I don’t see how he could have not known that Mr Epstein was around underage minors because he visited several of his homes were they were.

‘Why didn’t he ask the right questions, ‘Why are you here, why aren’t you in school?’

‘I guess if he didn’t want to see them he could have not seen them but I don’t know how he couldn’t know when there were so many of them there.

‘Now he’s been in the court of public opinion, he should testify to the FBI.’

It was his first public grilling on the subject, the interview of his life in fact, but he was on home turf at least, not in some harshly lit BBC studio

Ms Allred slammed the prince for describing Epstein’s behaviour as ‘unbecoming’, claiming she was ‘disturbed’ by his failure to truly condemn Epstein’s actions. 

Andrew twice stated his relationship with Epstein had provided ‘seriously beneficial outcomes’, giving him the opportunity to prepare for a future role as a trade envoy.

He cast doubt on the authenticity of a picture that appears to show Andrew with his arm around the waist of Mrs Giuffre, when a teenager. 

He expressed regret at making contact with Epstein in 2010 – flying to New York to say in person the friendship was over – after the 66-year-old had been released from an 18-month prison term for prostituting minors.
