Prince Andrew ‘going to have to answer questions’ – Epstein victims’ lawyer

Prince Andrew’s lack of co-operation with US authorities is a “slap in the face” to Jeffrey Epstein’s victims, according to a lawyer who represents five of the businessman’s accusers.

Lisa Bloom, who represents women who say they were abused by Epstein, told Sky News that Prince Andrew should show leadership and answer questions as the investigation continues.

According to Manhattan’s top federal prosecutor Geoffrey Berman, Prince Andrew is providing “zero cooperation” with a sex-trafficking investigation linked to Epstein, a deceased financier who was a convicted sex offender.

“You would think Prince Andrew would want to do the right thing.”@LisaBloom represents 5 of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims, and says the US attorney has put public pressure on Prince Andrew to cooperate with his investigation, but he’s got no subpoena power currently.

Mr Berman said his team and the FBI had contacted Andrew’s lawyers and asked to interview him but the lawyers had been uncooperative.

During a BBC Newsnight interview last year Prince Andrew suggested he would willingly co-operate with an investigation.
