Prince Andrew is likely to be sweating a lot after federal court found Ghislaine Maxwell guilty on five counts on Thursday: two counts of perjury, conspiracy to induce minors to travel to commit unlawful intercourse, conspiracy to transport minors with intent engage in criminal sex. activity, transportation of a minor for the purpose of involvement in criminal sexual activity. This means that Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s civil lawsuit against the royal family, which claims she was sold to him in the sex industry by Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein, will have much more media attention.
No one in Epstein’s orbit (he committed suicide in prison in 2019) has been prosecuted so far – and Prince Andrew’s lawyers are reportedly struggling to get a “smoking gun” testimony from one of the witnesses in Maxwell’s trial … They believe that Caroline’s testimony about Giuffra rather than Maxwell, which introduced her to Epstein, will be their way of discrediting the civil case. “Andrew’s lawyers convinced him that if he had a chance to prevent her case from being brought to trial, they needed to fight the fire and that nothing should be forbidden,” said one P. Sixth a source.

They are trying every legal aspect they can think of, including an upcoming hearing on January 4, 2022, to drop the civil case altogether because “the evidence shows that she actually lives in Australia. [instead of Colorado]where she has lived for all but two of the last 19 years, ”according to court documents obtained The keeper… Queen Elizabeth generously pays Prince Andrew’s lawyers to get the royals out of this royal mess.
And if Maxwell’s verdict doesn’t put pressure on, it could. January 3, 2022 court documents from g. Giuffre’s agreement with Epstein in 2009 to be revealed… The content may serve as an additional ground for her legal action against the Duke of York, even though his legal team argues that the Epstein settlement prohibits Giuffra from suing others involved in human trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation, including royals. That claim remains to be seen, so next week could be a defining moment for Andrew’s legal team.

There is also the problem that Prince Andrew was protected outside the palace walls by Queen Elizabeth. Of course, he was demoted from his senior position, but there was no pressure on him to do the right thing and cooperate with US investigators. “If Prince Andrew is really serious about cooperating with the current federal investigation, our doors remain open and we await reports of when we should expect him,” said US Attorney Jeffrey Berman. Reuters back in June 2020. And he called upon the Duke of York for the “false image[ing] himself to the public, as an aspiring and willing to cooperate, ”when he didn’t even bother to contact them.
But in reality, it all comes down to the fact that Prince Andrew will have a tough fight out of this situation. He actively argued that he was not friends with Epstein in order to distance himself from the late pedophile. And yet he was okay saying he was close with Maxwell – well, his friend is now convicted of sex trafficking. Prince Andrew’s team of lawyers will be working overtime (at the Queen’s expense) to take the heat off the royal family when all signs point to his involvement with Epstein and Maxwell in some capacity.
