Although the met police have dropped the investigation into prince Andrew’s alleged sex crimes, he is still a person of interest to the FBI and, as Curtis Daly reports, is being defended by the royal family who are seemingly trying to buy him out of trouble.
The Metropolitan Police have decided not to pursue the investigation of prince Andrew and his alleged sex crimes.
After reviewing documents – including one relating to Virgina Giuffre’s ongoing lawsuit against the prince – Met officers have dropped their investigation. Giuffre alleges that Epstein forced her to have sex with prince Andrew when she was 17.
The prince has denied having sex with Giuffre, and Buckingham Palace has responded by saying the claims are “false and without foundation”.
It’s worth noting that the queen herself will reportedly spend millions funding the defence against the claims.
What’s funny is that Cressida Dick, who is the commissioner of the met police, said that “no-one is above the law”, yet looking at this… why isn’t the Met police pursuing the case against prince Andrew? It’s also worth knowing that Cressa Dick attended the same school as Ghislaine Maxwell, Oxford High School.
I wouldn’t be surprised if many people see this as a complete cover up; that the establishment is taking care of its own, because it happens all of the time.
ABC News anchor Amy Robach said US network ABC killed her story on Jeffrey Epstein under pressure from the British royal family.
NPR reported that ABC didn’t air Robach’s interview with Giuffre. According to an ABC staffer, Epstein defense attorney Alan Dershowitz, who was also included in the investigation of Epstein, pressured ABC to stop the story from airing.
In an email from Virgina Giuffre to NPR, Giuffre said “At the time, in 2015, Epstein was walking around a free man, comparing his criminal behavior to stealing a bagel. I really wanted a spotlight shone on him and the others who acted with him and enabled his vile and shameless conduct against young girls and young women.”
She added: “I viewed the ABC interview as a potential game-changer. Appearing on ABC with its wide viewership would have been the first time for me to speak out against the government for basically looking the other way and to describe the anger and betrayal victims felt”.
Dershowitz’s reasoning to pressure ABC to kill the story was because he didn’t want to ‘see Giuffre’s credibility enhanced by ABC’.
We all know that Prince Andrew was close to Jefferey Epstein. With Buckingham Palace reportedly pressuring a major US news network to silence a story, things look incredibly suspicious.
Although the Met police have dropped the investigation, he remains a person of interest in the FBI’s case against Esptein.
We need a strong and robust legal system that holds everyone to the same standard and doesn’t allow those with wealth and power to buy themselves out of trouble.
We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
