PRINCE ANDREW A ‘PERSON OF INTEREST’ FOR US PROSECUTORS IN EPSTEIN PROBE
Investigators are keen to interview the Duke of York, 61, as a witness in their investigation into the dead billionaire paedophile’s alleged co-conspirators.
But a source familiar with the probe, quoted by respected news agency Reuters yesterday, said prosecutors considered Andrew a person of interest.
The source said Andrew was viewed “at least as a potential witness”, but they do not expect to interview him.
They added: “He doesn’t seem to want to talk to us.”
It is the first time anyone connected with prosecuting the Epstein case has described the Queen’s son as a “person of interest”.
New York criminal lawyer Daniel Bibb, 66, said: “They are thinking he may have been involved in criminal wrongdoing. They may be investigating him.”
Another US lawyer, who did not want to be named, said it was “bad news” for Andrew as prosecutors “haven’t ruled out the possibility he committed a crime”.
