A woman has accused the late financier Jeffrey Epstein for sexually abusing her when she was 15 years old and also called out Duke of York Prince Andrew to share information regarding his friend Epstein with the United States. Epstein's new accuser calls herself Jane Doe 15. She, along with her lawyer Gloria Allred, has appealed all those who were close to the convicted sex offender to come forward give information. She wants Epstein's friends and acquaintances to take an oath while sharing the details in the court and announced her lawsuit against Epstein's estate.
Allred also said that she had tried contacting Prince Andrew to meet the prosecutors who are currently investigating the criminal case in New York. This came in light after Prince Andrew's interview with an international media outlet, where he disclosed his relationship with Epstein and faced criticism.
The third child of Queen Elizabeth II has been facing a lot of criticism over his relationship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. His recent interview with an international media outlet is said to be “nuclear explosion level bad”. During the interview, Prince Andrew reportedly claimed that he did not know Epstein, hoping that it would stop the flow of negative press coverage. He claimed that he was clueless about the charges against Epstein and nothing had struck him as suspicious when he was around.
The royal watchers such as Charlie Proctor, who is the editor of the Royal Central Website, described the interview as 'ill-judged' and 'excruciating'. Dickie Arbiter, the queen's former press secretary also added that if the prince thought he has drawn a line in the sand over the whole incident, he was 'in cuckoo land'.
Epstein died by apparent suicide back in August while awaiting trial on federal charges that he sexually abused underage girls and ran a sex trafficking ring. Prince Andrew has been criticized over his links to multimillionaire Epstein. The US financier has been accused by Virginia Roberts Giuffre as she alleged that she was forced into sexual encounters with the prince while underage. Back in 2015, Giuffre reportedly alleged that Epstein forced her to perform sex acts with several prominent men, including Prince Andrew in 2001. However, the prince told the interviewer that he had no recollection of ever meeting Giuffre and has denied all the allegations.
