Prince Andrew in trouble?
On 16 November, Prince Andrew gave a “disastrous interview” in which he even denied meeting (or remembering meeting?) Virginia Roberts Giuffre, and now claims that the photo with his arm around her waist, with Ghislaine Maxwell in the background, is fake!
Andrew claims that the statements of Giuffre are false, because “I don't party” or “make public displays of affection”.
There are however a huge amount of pictures of Andrew with his hands all over pretty young women.
In 2007, Johanna Sjoberg told a newspaper that she witnessed an encounter with Prince Andrew, Ghislaine Maxwell, and “a couple of other girls my age”, including Virginia Roberts Giuffre. Sjoberg also told that at this occasion Andrew groped her breast.
Andrew bizarrely also claimed that Giuffre describing him as “sweaty” is untrue, since “I didn’t sweat at the time because I had suffered what I would describe as an overdose of adrenalin in the Falkland’s War when I was shot at and it was almost impossible for me to sweat
There are however photos of Randy Andy sweating profusely, when leaving the nightclub Chinawhite in 2001.
Andrew’s claim that he couldn’t have had sex with Giuffre at 1 of 3 occasions because he was with Britain's consul general in New York was denied by the diplomat in question, Sir Thomas Harris, who said: “I don't recall him staying with me
”, and that he would have remembered.
Harris explained that an overnight stay by Prince Andrew would be formally registered in the Court Circular, but this doesn’t appear for the dates of 9-11 April 2001.
Andrew claims that he first met Epstein in 1999 through Ghislaine Maxwell; but according to a letter by his then-private secretary Alastair Watson in defence of Andrew: “The duke [Andrew] has known Mr Epstein since being introduced to him in the early 1990s
Maybe the dumbest move by Andrew in the interview was that he admitted that he doesn’t regret his friendship with Epstein because of “the opportunities I was given to learn” from him about business!
After more than 20 organisation distanced themselves from Andrew – including Barclays, KPMG and the English National Ballet – some stopped backing Prince Andrew’s “charities”, Queen Elizabeth “sacked” her “favourite son” Andrew from royal duties, including his 200 charities.
Prince Charles, from British colony New Zealand, said that Andrew would be stripped of all royal duties. After visiting his mother, Andrew confirmed that with his mother's “permission”, he was “stepping down” from public duties.
Andrew will lose his £249,000 annual income from the taxpayer-funded Sovereign Grant.
Andrew also told that he met Ghislaine Maxwell earlier this year on or about 5 June.
Attorney Lisa Bloom, who represents 5 Epstein victims, said she will subpoena Andrew, saying:
Quote:Andrew and his staff must cooperate with all investigations, show up for civil depositions and trials, and produce all documents. Nobody is above the law and everybody should have to answer questions.
A caretaker of Epstein’s £7 million apartment in Paris since the early 2000s has told that Prince Andrew had been a regular visitor: “Prince Andrew stayed at the address a number of times including when Epstein was not there
The caretaker told the French police that regular visitors included politicians, business people and many young models and masseurs, who ended up being raped.
Guests at the apartment included Bill and Melinda Gates (this was confirmed by Epstein's butler Gabriel): https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article...tment.html
In 1999, Andrew invited Epstein at Balmoral Castle.
In 2000, Epstein was his guest at his own and Prince William’s birthday party.
In 2006, Epstein was invited for the birthday of Andrew’s and Fergie’s daughter, Princess Beatrice.
Another paedophile that was close to Prince Andrew for decades is Anglican priest Keith Gleed, who sexually abused at least 5 students at Lakefield College School in Ontario from 1974 to 1980, when Andrew attended the school.
Gregory said he was in Grade 9 when he began meeting Gleed, who gave him sherry and often hugged him and stroked his head. Gregory said that during their last meeting he woke up on the floor disoriented with Gleed sodomising him.
Another victim said Gleed began molesting him when he was in Grade 6.
In 1986, Gleed led a group from Lakefield who attended the wedding of Andrew to Sarah Ferguson. Andrew also visited the paedophile in Canada shortly before his death in 2001, according to Gleed’s obituary a “testament of true friendship”.
In 2008, in a ceremony for Gleed, Andrew and others called Gleed “the confidant of the troubled, the defender of the bullied and a true friend to all
The Anglican Church of Canada was aware of Gleed’s abuse years before his death.
The church received a sexual assault claim in the early 1990s, after which Gleed was stripped of his official capacity as a priest: http://web.archive.org/web/2019102509471...-ferguson/
Steve Rodhouse was in charge the UK police department that closed the investigation into Jeffrey Epstein and his British links, including Prince Andrew, in 2015. The investigation wouldn´t have been closed without his approval.
British cops refuse to investigate the accusations by Virginia Roberts Giuffre that she was sexually abused by Prince Andrew when she was only 17.
A spokesperson said:
Quote:As we have previously said, the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) did receive an allegation of non-recent trafficking for sexual exploitation. Having closely examined the available evidence, the decision was made that this would not progress to a full investigation.
As such, the matter was closed. We acknowledge the considerable interest and concern around this case and have revisited that decision making and believe it remains entirely appropriate.
Therefore no further action is being taken. The Met will always take seriously any allegation concerning sexual exploitation.
Steve Rodhouse has gotten a nice promotion to the leadership team of the National Crime Agency…
Steve Rodhouse also “investigated” the child abuse alleged by Carl Beech (a.k.a. Nick). Beech named amongst others Greville Janner and Leon Brittan as his child molesters.
Carl Beech was sentenced to 18 years in prison for making up “preposterous tales” that ruined the lives and reputations of some of Britain's most “distinguished public servants”.
For the record, I have doubts about the statements of Carl Beech… but 18 years in jail seems a bit too much!!!
Steve Rodhouse oversaw Surrey Police's “inquiry” into the mass paedophile Jimmy Savile, another good friend of the House of Windsor, who never went to prison.
Harvey Proctor claimed that after the “mishandled inquiry” into Savile, he “sought to use Beech’s claims as a form of redemption
Steve Rodhouse, who oversaw the operation, said:
Quote:I am sincerely sorry for the distress that has been caused to innocent people and their families as a consequence of Operation Midland and Operation Vincente.
As for Epstein's co-conspirator (not a single day in jail) being pictured with the rich and famous…
