Prince Andrew: faces criminal probe in U.S. over sex with minors

Prince Andrew, the Duke of York is now facing a criminal probe over his links to billionaire paedophile pal Jeffrey Epstein.

The SUN revealed today that the U.S.Justice Department has officially demanded Britain hand him over over to be interrogated.

Andrew, 60, has so far refused to be quizzed by New York prosecutors investigating Epstein’s evil historic sex trafficking network but strongly denies any wrongdoing.

Until now it was thought he was only likely to be the target of action by Epstein’s victims in the US civil courts.

One – Virginia Roberts Giuffre, now 36 – alleges she had sex with Andrew on three occasions between 2001 and 2002, twice while underage. However Andrew denies this.

The Sun revealed the US Department of Justice has dramatically upped the stakes.

It has by-passed Buckingham Palace – instead filing a “mutual legal assistance” (MLA) request to the Home Office.

MLA requests are only used in criminal cases under a legal treaty with the UK.

It means Andrew, who “categorically denies” any wrongdoing, could now be forced to appear in a UK court as a witness within months.

The move also piles pressure on the Duke to give evidence – and on the UK Government to assist.
