RICHARD KAY: No one has ever doubted his bravery. As a helicopter decoy pilot in the Falklands War, he put his life on the line luring Argentine missiles away from British ships.
In challenging the veracity of America’s Department of Justice, which has accused him of refusing to cooperate with its investigation into Epstein’s sex-trafficking network, he is taking on the most powerful law agency in the world.
And in a further twist last night, U.S. authorities responded to the Prince’s intervention. In a statement, the Justice Department said Andrew had sought to ‘falsely portray’ himself as a willing participant in their inquiry and said he had ‘repeatedly declined’ to be interviewed.
Both sides are effectively accusing the other of lying.
Never before has a senior member of the Royal Family adopted such a robust, and potentially perilous, position.
Plus Prince Andrew claims he is being treated as a second class citizen.
