UK Police Drop Sexual Assault Investigation Into Prince Andrew & Jeffrey Epstein
The Metropolitan Police in the UK have announced that they will take no further action over Virginia Giuffre's allegations of sexual assault by Prince Andrew after reviewing a number of documents. A source close to Prince Andrew told the PA Media news agency that "It comes as no surprise that the Met police have confirmed that, having reviewed the sex assault claims against the duke for a third time, they are taking no further action. "
Giuffre's case, filed in New York on August 2021, alleges that Prince Andrew sexually abused Ms. Giuffre, who was then known as Virginia Roberts when she was 17 years old. She claims the acts took place at the London home of Jeffrey Epstein's associate Ghislaine Maxwell, as well as at Epstein's homes in Manhattan and Little St. James in the US Virgin Islands.
Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested on July 2, 2020 on multiple charges related to the sexual abuse of young women and girls by Jeffrey Epstein. She is currently in prison awaiting trial.
Prince Andrew has until October 29, 2021 to respond to the lawsuit. According to the police, there is simply not enough evidence to continue with an investigation. He has long “absolutely and categorically” denied having sex with Virgina Giuffre on multiple occasions. Buckingham Palace has called the claims “false and without foundation”.
The public is aware of the allegations, as well as a photo of Giuffre with Prince Andrew with his arm around her waist. Maxwell can be seen in the picture as well. Sources said to be close to the prince have suggested the photo was faked – a claim denied by his accuser – while Prince Andrew has said he has “no recollection” of meeting her.
These types of cases are difficult given that the law requires a certain amount of evidence to give actionable justice to these accusations. In fact, this makes it difficult for survivors of high profile sexual abuse and child trafficking to gain any ground within the mainstream discussion.
Accusations such as these have plagued the Royal Family for decades. For example, a member of the Royal family was allegedly part of a suspected pedophile ring under investigation by the police in the late 1980s, a former police officer has said. The former Metropolitan Police officer said he was told by a detective sergeant that the investigation into the ring, which was also claimed to include an MP, was shut down for national security reasons. “
"I was in a car with two other vice squad officers … The detective sergeant said he had just had a major child abuse investigation shut down by the CPS regarding a royal and an MP,” he told the Sunday Mirror newspaper. “He did not mention names, but he said the CPS had said it was not in the public’s interest because it ‘could destabilise national security’.”

We can also recall the case of Sir Jimmy Savile, a BBC children’s television presenter well connected by the Royal Family and Downing Street. He abused 450 victims, mostly boys and girls as young as eight over 50 years. While Savile had long been seen as odd, the scale of his offenses shocked the country. He was even allowed special access to places like children's hospitals. Authorities laughed at or ignored his victims before he died a national hero.
Elite level pedohilia is not a new phenomenon, and its global. For example, in the United States, the Franklin scandal made waves in 1989. Investigations and whistleblower accounts alleged that hundreds of children were flown around the US to be abused by high ranking ‘Establishment’ members on both the left and the right of the political spectrum.
Former state senator John W DeCamp, cited as one of the most effective legislators in Nebraska history, was the attorney for two of the abuse victims. One is a 15 year old girl who alleged that she had been abused since the age of 9 and was exposed was exposed to ‘ritual murder’ of a newborn girl, a small boy (who was subsequently fried and eaten) and three others.
If these accusations are indeed real, then we must ask how this type of activity has been able to exist and persist for so long. I like to use the example of Cardinal George Pell. A couple of years ago he became the highest ranking Vatican official to ever be convicted of child sexual abuse, but his convictions were overturned and he was freed from jail. It’s disturbing to contemplate the idea that Cardinal George Pell is or would be involved in such things, after all, he himself established The Diocesan Commission Into Sexual Abuse in 1996.
Perhaps the ones we turn to to solve the problem are also involved?
