The Met had to give an explanation for why it stopped investigating allegations of sex trafficking against Jeffrey Epstein after the woman claiming she was forced into sex with the Duke of York accused the police of corruption.
Virginia Giuffre is pictured in a now notorious photo of Prince Andrew with his hand around her bare waist, with Epstein and the Duke’s ‘friend’ Ghislaine Maxwell in the background. A teenager then, she claims to have had sex with the royal at least three times back in 2001.
Some fourteen years later she brought her story to the Metropolitan Police Service, only to see the probe dropped rather quickly. “At first the Scotland Yard told me they were going to forensically examine GM’s [Ghislaine Maxwell’s] house in London – next thing I hear, just like the FBI, they were not allowed to pursue the investigation.
