MAIL 2 JANUARY 2022 - Met Police under pressure to quiz Prince Andrew
after friend Ghislaine Maxwell's conviction - as it's claimed Duke
continued to socialise with her for years despite 'cutting ties' with
her paedophile billionaire boyfriend
The Metropolitan Police must probe any links Jeffrey Epstein and
Ghislaine Maxwell had with the UK even if that includes Prince Andrew,
legal experts have claimed.
The force should look into all alleged offences committed in Britain
'without fear or favour', former officers and prosecutors said.
They claimed Maxwell's conviction meant cops could no longer dodge
launching an investigation into allegations centred in the country.
But the Met has so far maintained it continues 'to liaise with other law
enforcement agencies who lead the investigation into matters related to
It comes amid claims Prince
Andrew still socialised with Maxwell long after Epstein was known to
the police for being a paedophile.
The Duke was even reportedly guest of honour for her birthday party at
Dorchester Hotel in London as late as December 2012.
Former Chief Crown Prosecutor for the north west of England Nazir Afzal,
ex-police detective constable Maggie Oliver and retired Met detective
sergeant Steve Morris are calling for the Met to launch a probe.
Mr Afzal, who spearheaded the Rochdale child grooming case in 2012, told
the Express: 'The Met has previously said there is not enough evidence
but that is because it has not been investigated.
'It must now properly investigate and see where it takes them and if
that involves interviewing His Royal Highness then it must do that, as
what it is meant to do is investigate without fear or favour.'
Ms Oliver said: 'My fear is with these decisions based on people in high
places that there is a reluctance by the authorities to dig deep for
fear of upsetting the apple cart.'
And Mr Morris added the Duke of York should at least be interviewer
under caution over any links he had to the former couple.
One of the claims centred on the UK is that
Roberts was trafficked to the country to have sex with Prince Andrew
in 2001, which he denies.
Meanwhile it was claimed the Royal continued to socialise with Maxwell
for years after the depravity of her then boyfriend Epstein emerged.
He reportedly sat opposite her at her 51st birthday party at the China
Tang restaurant in the Dorchester two years after he went to New York to
cut ties with Epstein.
A source told the Sunday Times: 'The guest list was top notch. There
were many very interesting people there who clearly liked her
[Maxwell].' Epstein was not there.
Andrew first met him via Maxwell in 1999 and he invited them to stay at Balmoral
later that year.
They were invited to Windsor Castle in 2000 for his 40th birthday party
as well as three others.
US police first probed Epstein's abuses in Florida in 2005 and he was
jailed for 13 months after a plea deal in 2008.
Prince Andrew was pictured with the paedophile
again in New York in December 2010.
He told Newsnight in 2020 that he had only been there to tell the
financier he was severing ties.
He also told the programme his last contact with Maxwell had been
earlier that year at a rally.
He said he had seen her before the July, insisting it was before Epstein
was arrested and charged with sex trafficking.
Last week the Duke was asked to produce key documents in support of his
alibi he did not have sex with his American accuser - including
confirmation he did not sweat.
Virginia Giuffre's legal team requested a wealth of information from
Andrew's lawyers as they probe his BBC
Newsnight interview when he said he was visiting a Pizza Express on
the day of the claimed sexual encounter.
Ms Giuffre is suing the Queen's son for allegedly sexually assaulting
her when she was a teenager and claims she was trafficked by disgraced
Epstein to have sex
with the duke, and was pictured with the royal and his friend Ghislaine
Maxwell during the period the alleged intercourse took place.
Andrew has denied all the allegations.
Her lawyers have also requested travel documents detailing Andrew's
movements on Epstein's planes and to his various homes, the duke's visit
to Pizza Express in Woking and London's Tramp nightclub where Ms Giuffre
alleges she danced with a heavily sweating Andrew before they had sex.
Maxwell, 60, was convicted in America on Wednesday of helping to entice
vulnerable teenagers to the properties of Epstein, her former boyfriend,
for him to sexually abuse between 1994 and 2004.
She was labelled 'dangerous' by the prosecution and faces the rest of
her life in jail, and her friendship with Andrew has seen renewed
scrutiny of Ms Giuffre's civil claim for damages against the duke.
Andrew's legal team have rejected the requests for the documents citing
various reasons, including the information is protected from disclosure
by rights of privacy under the US constitution and Article
8 of the European
Convention on Human Rights.
His lawyers also state in papers filed to a New York court, the
documents requested are already publicly available or the requests are
'unduly burdensome, oppressive... duplicative and over broad'.
Andrew's much anticipated appearance on BBC's Newsnight in November 2019
was an attempt to defend his reputation in the wake of the Epstein sex
scandal, but he opened himself up to further accusations with critics
saying he failed to show remorse for the financier's victims.
The duke denied he slept with Ms Giuffre on three separate occasions
when questioned by Newsnight presenter Emily Maitlis, saying one
encounter did not happen as he had taken his daughter Princess Beatrice
to Pizza Express in Woking for a party and they spent the rest of the
The same sexual encounter, which the American said began with the royal
sweating heavily as they danced at Tramp nightclub, was factually wrong,
the duke said, as he had a medical condition at the time which meant he
did not sweat.
Ms Giuffre has alleged in the past she had sex with Andrew in London and
New York when she was aged 17, a minor under US law, and again aged 18
on a private Caribbean island owned by Epstein where an orgy took place.
In response to the decision not to provide information, Ms Giuffre's
legal team said in court documents: 'If Prince Andrew truly has no
documents concerning his communications with Maxwell or Epstein, his
travel to Florida, New York, or various locations in London, his alleged
medical inability to sweat, or anything that would support the alibis he
gave during his BBC interview, then continuing with discovery will not
be burdensome to him at all.'
Maxwell's brother Ian Maxwell told BBC Radio 4's Today programme his
sibling's trial was not fair and he thinks her appeal against the
verdict will succeed.
Pressed on whether the women who testified against his sister were
lying, he replied: 'Of course, the prosecution didn't put into evidence
the prior interviews they had with these accusers, which showed a
completely different case.
'Memory is faulty, and so, in my view, the trial that has occurred was
not a fair trial from Ghislaine's perspective. And that is why she's
going to appeal, and I think she'll be successful.'
of York accused of rape.
The first Royal for many a year to have such charges leveled at him,
Offences Act 2003 (SOA) become a rather hostile piece of legislation
- if the same standards are used for investigating the former Prince, as
has been used on commoners.
SOA says a claimant is to be believed during police investigation
stages, and the defendant is to be treated as guilty in gathering
evidence, and during police interviews, etc. What that means is that the
police will not be looking for evidence that points to the accused being
innocent. Such evidence will either not be secured for the defence, or
will be buried as unused evidence. But a prosecution will still be
mounted, even though the police know there is evidence to the contrary -
that they are hiding from the Courts, as officer's of the Court -
because the SOA directs them to do that. Also, in violation of the
normal Investigations Code of Conduct.
when the parties enter a Crown Court, the Judge is to treat the
defendant as guilty. There does not need to be a shred of evidence as to
an/any actual physical encounter, just potential opportunity - and the
assertion by the claimant that something untoward too place at some time
in the past.
warning is given to the Jury as to the danger of convicting on the mere
say so of just the claimant. That right has been abrogated - in the SOA.
Blunkett did a pretty good job of removing the Article
6 protections of the accused in sex cases, where a person would
normally walk into a courtroom innocent, until proven guilty. In the UK,
you are guilty until proven innocent. All thanks to Blunkett and the
civil servants helping him to draft such legislation.
that reason, we think of David Blunkett as a Human Rights offender. To
us, and we imagine many people wrongly convicted, he is no better that a
Nazi prison guard, when administering Zyklon
B in the gas ovens at concentration camps like Buchenwald
It was these atrocities that brought about the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights. The UK helped draft those Articles in
1948, and ever since, just like the 1689
Bill of Rights, have been slowly undoing all the good that came from
that little human
rights abomination, the MP who was having an extra marital affair -
thus generating a conflict of interests (blow jobs in exchange for
expunging male rights) changed the law. But how many blow jobs did it
take, allegedly, you might ask? And was it worth it? Well, David was
seen laughing a lot, around that time. So make of that what you will.

policemen are Masons.
This can lead to corruption at high levels, where fellow Masons, members
of the public, might obtain favours, charges dropped, or charges brought
against someone, as examples. The law is quite often used
incorrectly (illegally) to further the objectives of private causes. But
who is there to investigate? Since many, if not most high ranking
officers are Masons, in whichever force, even an outside force is
unlikely to identify an officer who will make any effort to investigate
a fellow officer. It's a club, for a favoured few.
