Justice rejects Prince Andrew's request to annul the accusation of sexual abuse of a minor

A judge in New York, United States, has decided to reject the request of Prince Andrew of England, in which he requested that the accusation against him for sexual abuse be dismissed. His defense lawyers argued that, after the agreement between Epstein and Virginia Giuffre, the now whistleblower and also victim of the tycoon, the case should be annulled.

On January 3, a confidential agreement signed in 2009 was published according to which the late Jeffrey Epstein paid $ 500,000 to Virginia Giuffre, in exchange for her dropping her accusations for alleged sexual abuse when she was a minor.

The extrajudicial agreement, which until now remained secret, establishes that any legal action by Giuffre against Epstein and against other “potential defendants” in the alleged plot of sex trafficking of minors investigated by a New York court will be dismissed.

Therefore, the main argument of the defense of Prince Andrew so that the trial does not take place has been overthrown. When these accusations first came to light, Andrés himself was very blunt in an interview with the BBC: “It didn’t happen. I can tell you categorically that it never happened. I don’t remember meeting this lady at all“.
