A telecoms specialist that used to be employed by Jeffrey Epstein has told the media that he’s willing to swear under oath he saw Prince Andrew interacting with Virginia Giuffre on Epstein’s private island.
This comes after Giuffre has filed a civil complaint against the Prince in a Manhattan federal court. She alleges that the Prince forced her to have unwanted intercourse at Epstein’s girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell’s house in London. Giuffre claims the incident happened between 2001 and 2004.
Now 71, Steve Scully has told the Sun on Sunday that he saw the Prince and Giuffre bumping and grinding for several minutes.
“I was working on the phone and he (the Prince) was by the pool with Virginia. As soon as I saw him, I recognised him. I thought, ‘If I had a camera in my bag right now, Id’ have a $50,000 picture’.”
Meanwhile Reuters has reported that US prosecutors probing the activities of British socialite Maxwell and others linked to the for American financier Epstein consider Prince Andrew a person of interest in the investigation, a source familiar with the US inquiry said.
Maxwell, who is thought to have groomed several underage girls for Epstein while she was his girlfriend, is currently in a prison in New York where she is awaiting trial based on her associations and actions while she was involved with the paedophile Epstein.
In 2019 Epstein committed suicide in a Manhattan prison after being found guilty.
Prince Andrew, Queen Elizabeth II’s third child has publicly claimed that he has no recollection of ever meeting Virginia Giuffre even though a photo of the two of them posing with Maxwell in the background has been widely spread.
