Federal prosecutors in New York want to question Prince Andrew under oath as they continue their criminal investigation into sex trafficking charges against late financier Jeffrey Epstein. The Prince, who was a long time friend of Epstein, has been accused by one woman of sexual abuse when she was 17-years old.

The feds have made a formal request to the British government to interview Prince Andrew who says the allegations are untrue. Prince Andrew has not been forthcoming with the US prosecutors and refuses to speak with them. So now they are forcing his hand. He may have to go to a magistrate’s court in the UK to make a statement possibly not under oath. The 66-year-old Epstein died by suicide last summer while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges. Prosecutors say Epstein preyed on dozens of underage girls in New York and Florida. Netflix has released a new documentary called “Filthy Rich” about Epstein’s exploits especially in South Florida. Also a new book has just been released, “Prince Andrew: Epstein and the Monarchy” by Nigel Cawthorne.
