Lawyers for Epsteins casualties say they were almost completely ignored in interview

Prince Andrew is facing a transatlantic reaction over his extraordinary defence of his love with Jeffrey Epstein after advocates who represent 10 of the billionaire predator’s victims branded the imperial unrepentant and implausible and demanded that he speak to the FBI.

After the royal’s defiant Newsnight interrogation on Saturday provoked a disbelieving reaction from the public and the media, the monarch was under changing pressing from critics in the UK and US on Sunday who expected an apology for his conduct and said that his defence of his actions was simply not credible.

Gloria Allred, who has worked on several high-profile sexual harassment cases and is now representing five of Epstein’s victims, told the Guardian:” The right and honorable activity for Prince Andrew to take now is for him to voluntary to be interviewed by the FBI and prosecutors for the southern district of New York[ who are continuing to investigate sex-trafficking accusations against Epstein despite his death in prison in August ].

” Prince Andrew has decided to enter the court of public opinion with this interview and people can decide whether to believe him or not. The most important part of this is the victims and very little was said about them in this interview. They were almost completely discounted .”
