Jeffrey Epstein‘s alleged victims have urged Prince Andrew to co-operate with an inquiry into the financier.
Attorney Lisa Bloom, representing five women who say they were abused by the financier, said Jeffrey Epstein’s accusers were “outraged” by the Duke of York not assisting the US authorities.
It comes after the prosecutor in charge of the US investigation said Prince Andrew had provided “zero co-operation”.
The prince has said he did not witness or suspect any suspicious behavior during visits to Jeffrey Epstein’s homes.
Prince Andrew has come under fire for his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein – a convicted sex offender who took his own life in a jail cell in August at the age of 66, while awaiting trial on trafficking and conspiracy charges.
Last November, the prince said that he was willing to help the authorities into the investigation of Jeffrey Epstein.
However, attorney Geoffrey Berman said prosecutors and the FBI have received no reply after contacting Prince Andrew’s lawyers.
Linda Bloom said the duke should “do the right thing”.
Buckingham Palace said Prince Andrew’s legal team was dealing with the issue and it would not be commenting further.
Another lawyer representing some of Jeffrey Epstein’s accusers, Gloria Allred, said she had sent a letter to Prince Andrew’s home urging him to co-operate but hadn’t received a response.
