Andrew accuser’s 2009 deal with Epstein made public
Secret Jeffrey Epstein deal with Prince Andrew accuser set to be made public? It shows Virginia Giuffre agreed not to sue anyone who could be described as a "potential defendant".
The secret Jeffrey Epstein deal that Prince Andrew believes protects him from his sexual assault lawsuit is expected to be made public Monday.
The late pedophile inked the agreement in 2009 with longtime accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who is suing Andrew, 61, for allegedly having sex with her three times when she was 17.
The UK royal has insisted the sealed deal shields him and others “from any and all liability” because Epstein intended for it to cover anyone Giuffre might sue.
Manhattan federal Judges Loretta Preska and Lewis Kaplan ruled last month that the deal will be made public sometime Monday.
In their ruling, the judges questioned “whether any proper purpose would be served by the continued secrecy of the document save, perhaps, the dollar amount the settlement provided it for.”
The expected release comes in a pivotal week in the case, with a hearing scheduled Tuesday to hear Andrew’s motion to dismiss the case.
Giuffre has long maintained that she was forced by Epstein and his convicted madam, Ghislaine Maxwell, to have sex three times with the UK royal after being introduced to him in 2001 in London.
Andrew, the second son of Queen Elizabeth II, has not been criminally charged and has vehemently denied the allegations that saw him dumped from royal duties.
Last week, his close friend Maxwell — the daughter of disgraced media baron Robert Maxwell — was convicted for her role in supplying underage girls to Epstein, who had been her longtime boyfriend.
Maxwell, who was dubbed a “sophisticated predator” who committed “one of the worst crimes imaginable,” faces up to 65 years in prison.
Hours after the conviction, Giuffre said she “will remember this day always.”
“My soul yearned for justice for years and today the jury gave me just that,” she tweeted.
“I hope that today is not the end but rather another step in justice being served. Maxwell did not act alone. Others must be held accountable. I have faith that they will be,” she wrote.
Epstein, 66, died -somehow- in prison in 2019 — a victim of suicide, authorities say, an impossible suicide, obviously — while awaiting trial on child sex charges.
