Who is Virginia Giuffre: the Woman Pursuing Prince Andrew?

Who is Virginia Roberts Giuffre? Known worldwide as the girl in a photo with a royal, the mother-of-three wants to bring down the entire Epstein sex trafficking network.

And now she is coming for every single one of them.

  • Prince Andrew will face an unprecedented test in a New York court
  • As we know, the duke denies the allegations he sexually assaulted Ms Roberts Giuffre on three occasions in 2001.
  • He says it’s all lies, but what would happen if Prince Andrew came to New York for a hearing?
  • It might not happen; the royal might try to settle instead. But let’s think of the court of public opinion here. That’s clearly what Virginia’s lawyers have in mind and she says she does not want to settle.
  • Even so, would Prince Andrew ever be brave or foolhardy enough to go to America and risk potential arrest by the FBI or being led into a perjury trap being asked about his relationship with Maxwell and Epstein?

Who is Virginia Giuffre


This is the shocking true story of what happened when Ghislaine Maxwell recruited 16-year-old Virginia Roberts (as she was then known) into the Epstein trafficking network.

In her civil claim, she alleges Prince Andrew sexually abused her as a teenager on multiple occasions in London, Manhattan, and the US Virgin Islands in 2001 — allegations which he denies.

Ms Roberts was sexually abused by a family friend at the age of seven, which set off a pattern of more abuse, running away from home, foster care, and drug and alcohol abuse.

“I was just so mentally scarred already at such a young age, and I ran away from that,” she told the BBC’s Panorama in 2019. 

She told the program she was almost instantly groomed by Maxwell to join the global sex trafficking scheme.

“Through that time they were asking me questions about who I was,” she said.

She added: ”They seemed like nice people so I trusted them, and I told them I’d had a really hard time in my life up until then – I’d been a runaway, I’d been sexually abused, physically abused… That was the worst thing I could have told them because now they knew how vulnerable I was.”

Ms Giuffre has said Epstein “passed me around like a platter of fruit” among his powerful friends and business partners, as she was taken across the globe on his private plane.

In March 2001, then aged 17, Maxwell and Epstein brought her to the United Kingdom and introduced her to the then-40-year-old Prince Andrew.

Who is Virginia Giuffre

“It was a really scary time in my life… I wasn’t chained to a sink, but these powerful people were my chains,” she told the BBC. 

Ms Giuffre says the prince sexually abused her three times – at Maxwell’s London home and later at Epstein’s homes in New York City and Little St James in the Virgin Islands.

She has also testified in 2021 in Paris against disgraced French model agent Jean-Luc Brunel, a friend of Epstein and Maxwell.

Ms Giuffre now lives in Australia with her husband, Robert, and their three children.

She has founded a non-profit organisation called Speak Out, Act, Reclaim (SOAR), aimed at “educating and advocating for victims of trafficking”.

Finally, the woman who was a once scared 17 year old girl allegedly trafficked to a prince, has all the power.

Prince Andrew Woes

We update you on the latest in the Duke of York’s drama, which seems to have been created by the Prince and the Prince alone.

Moreover, the public wants answers from him but he has been hiding behind his mother. This case won’t just go away quietly, ever. He is only just now starting to realise this new reality.

Prince Andrew continues to be locked in a vicious battle over claims he assaulted Ms Roberts Giuffre three times when she was aged 17. 

The Epstein whistleblower alleges Maxwell and Epstein trafficked her to Prince Andrew. 

This latest move in the ongoing saga comes after Ghislaine Maxwell was recently convicted of federal charges of conspiracy and sex trafficking involving minors.

Who is Virginia Giuffre

Ms Roberts Giuffre is seeking unspecified damages from Prince Andrew for alleged sexual assault. The Duke of York has strenuously denied all allegations made against him.

This case will further embarrass Buckingham Palace and Queen Elizabeth II when it goes to trial. 

This could be another blow to the monarchy, which is still reeling from the aftermath of Prince Andrew’s former friend Epstein’s suicide in jail in 2019.

The trial date has not yet been set, but it is expected to take place later this year. 

Ghislaine Maxwell Little Black Book Names: Secret No More

The convicted sex trafficker is refusing to protect VIPs, Epstein staffers and others after her disastrous trial, according to new documents.

Ghislaine Maxwell Little Black Book: The anonymous names in the Virginia Giuffre versus Ghislaine Maxwell defamation case papers were today dealt a blow after the convicted sex trafficker withdrew support for keeping their identities sealed.

Both parties today lodged letters to the court in regards to the unsealing, or un-redacting, of various individuals, known as ‘the Does’.

Ms Giufree’s lawyer Sigrid McCawley wrote: ‘Now that Maxwell’s criminal trial has come and gone, there is little reason to retain protection over the vast swaths of information about Epstein and Maxwell’s sex-trafficking operation that were originally filed under seal in this case.’

Non-party does in the case are now facing uncertainty and a wait after Maxwell withdrew any support for keeping their names sealed.

This has been described as the prisoner taking her “bat and ball” and going home after her disastrous criminal trial.

Ghislaine Maxwell Little Black Book

Several of the individuals are objecting and trying to remain a number on the public documents, while others are fine with the unsealing.

Of course, that probably means that those who are fine with being named are most likely to be adult survivors or Jeffrey Epstein staff.

Ghislaine Maxwell Little Black Book
Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell

Those who don’t wish to be named and, therefore, forever associated with Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein, may be employees, business partners or close friends.

Already so many names have been typed out in the various documents lodged, but there are several that have been missing, with many believing theses names are behind the black redactions.

In summary:

  • The objecting Does are 17, 73, 93, 151, and 55 and 56.
  • Doe 53 does not oppose unsealing.
  • Doe 54 does not generally oppose unsealing.

Ghislaine Maxwell Little Black Book

From the Maxwell letter lodged, docket 1238:

“Each of the listed Does has counsel who have ably asserted their own respective privacy rights. Ms Maxwell therefore leaves it to this Court to conduct the appropriate review consistent with the Order and Protocol for Unsealing Decided Motions.”

Ghislaine Maxwell Little Black Book
Ghislaine Maxwell & Epstein Coconspirator Sarah Kellen

Now let’s look at the Does. I’ve quickly gone through all the documents and tried to see if there were mishaps, and yes in one case there has been. 

Doe 17 is mentioned in four documents on the list of decided motions before the Court.

From Document 1237, docketed by Virginia Giuffre’s legal team, about Doe 17’s objections: 

That Doe 17 does not want to be associated with Maxwell and Epstein because, as they write, “if [the material] allowed to be made public, [it] will cause [them], to say the least, annoyance and embarrassment.”.

Doe 17 further writes that disclosure of this information will cause them severe anxiety and distress. They do not cite a single legal authority suggesting that these concerns outweigh the presumption of public access. In any event, Doe 17’s objections are not enough to rebut the presumption of public access.

First, three of the documents only mention Doe 17’s name in the context of discovery search terms or a Federal Rule of Civil Procedure Rule 26 disclosure.

Ghislaine Maxwell Little Black Book

The list of search terms that include Doe 17’s name, including no personal or private information about them, and simply list Doe 17’s name among many other.

42A18FFC BD6D 45FE A0E4 B4D528269310
Maxwell massaging Epstein’s foot

The person remarks that they have “never been a witness to any conduct relevant to this lawsuit” and that when the accusations against Epstein were publicized in the media, they were “shocked and did not want to have anything to do with him”.

Regardless, Ms Giuffre agreed to redact Doe 17’s address in Docket Entry 423-4, which should alleviate their privacy concerns.

Doe 17’s assertion that unsealing would cause them “extreme personal, physical and reputational harm”, that, in turn, has caused health problems is too generalized to warrant sealing.

Especially given the narrow categories of information the Court has kept sealed thus far: information concerning sexual relations between consenting adults, medical records and certain documents that might have prejudiced Maxwell’s, now concluded, criminal trial.

In any event, any purported privacy concerns raised by Doe 17 are less weighty, given that they remain free to publicly address any allegations made against them. 

Ghislaine Maxwell Little Black Book

Interestingly Doe 17 (along with 73, 151) is in the 423-4 Declaration of Maxwell lawyer Laura A Menniger in support of motion to compel settlement agreement.

Doe 53 does not oppose unsealing. Doe 53 is mentioned in 36 documents associated with the decided motions. 

Looking through the various documents listed that have been listed as Doe documents, Doe 53 is mentioned in docket 172, Virginia Giuffre’s request to exceed Rule 30 which states the maximum of 10 depositions for a civil case. This document is 28 pages and includes an index of who VG had already deposed and those she wished to examine.

The document states that Ms Giuffre had already deposed;

Ghislaine Maxwell

Johanna Sjoberg

The further depositions included housekeepers Juan Alessi and Maria Alessi

Pilot David Rodgers

Rinaldo Rizzo, the Dubin butler

Jean Luc Brunel (model agent now in a French cell awaiting trial),

Ross Gow (Maxwell PRadvisor),

Dana Burns (friend),

Jo Jo Fontanella (former NY butler for JE),

Detective Joe Recarey (Palm Beach),

Michael Reiter (Former Palm Beach Police Chief ),

Emmy Tayler (enabler),

Alexandra Hall (survivor),

Nadia Marcinkova (pilot and enabler and survivor),

Sarah Kellen Vickers (enabler)

Jeffrey Epstein.

Ghislaine Maxwell Little Black Book

In the body of this document, extrapolating of the various names and what importance their depositions would be, but in the order of the index above, the name Alexandra Hall is redacted, but is clearly in the index.

Number 14 in the body of the document has been redacted. Therefore I’m taking a punt that Doe 53 is a survivor.

172 index

172 body
172 body

DOE 54 is mentioned in 31 documents associated with decided motions.

From Document 1237, docketed by Virginia Giuffre’s legal team.

Doe 54 does not opposes unsealing any of these documents aside from a single question in Docket 450-1 which they contend was a transcription error.

The Plaintiff does not dispute that there may have been a transcription error, but this does not justify sealing at all, let alone the sealing of the question itself (to which Doe 54 concedes there is no error).

Doc 450 is a declaration filled by Maxwell’s team in support to compel testimony of Jeffrey Epstein. In regards to her identity I believe her to be an adult survivor or someone who worked for either Ghislaine Maxwell or Epstein but not in a role some would categorize as a physical abuser. 

Does 55 and 56

These Does are dealt with together and are mentioned in four excerpts from the same deposition transcript. 

From Document 1237, docketed by Virginia Giuffre’s legal team.

Both Does 55 and 56’s objections are predicated on the notion that the deposition itself is unreliable and that their privacy interests warrant continued sealing. Neither reasons surmount the presumption of public access such to warrant continued sealing. 

Next, apart from questioning the veracity of the deposition testimony, both Does 55 and 56 fail to demonstrate countervailing interests that outweigh the presumption of public access.

Instead both Does conclude that the material would negatively impact their privacy and that unsealing would harm them by associating them with Maxwell and Epstein, regardless of where the underlying conduct surrounding their mention could be proven. 

Further, the names of both Does 55 and 56 have already been the subject of media attention in connection with Epstein and Maxwell, militating the risk of any specific harm resulting from any unwanted attention to the deposition where they are mentioned. 

Further, Does 55 and 56’s argument that they did not have a chance to refute the Deponent’s (person who makes a deposition or affidavit under oath) testimony is unavailing given their continued ability to do so now – there is simply nothing stopping them from responding to the deponent’s testimony if they contend it is false. 

This pair of Does seem to not just be linked together, but seem to have submitted together, possibly indicating some form of relationship.

Ghislaine Maxwell Little Black Book

Ghislaine Maxwell Little Black Book

DOE 73 Doe 73’s name appears in seven documents, in connection with letters discussing search terms.

From Document 1237, docketed by Virginia Giuffre’s legal team.

Doe 73’s objections to unsealing is based on their general aversion to being associated with Maxwell and Epstein, and their claims that they had no knowledge of any of the underlying claims predicating this action. 

Doe 73 (along with 17, 151) is in the 423-4 Declaration of Laura A Menniger in support of motion to compel settlement agreement.

DOE 93 Is mentioned in three deposition excerpts associated with decided motions. 

From Document 1237, docketed by Virginia Giuffre’s legal team.

They write that they have ‘no relevance to the issues in this dispute’ and that “[g]iven the sensitive and potentially salacious issues’ at issue, the materials should remain sealed.

DOE 151

Doe 151 is mentioned in 47 documents attached to the motions. This Doe is throughout the documents from the early documents to those right to the end, including 423-4 one of the documents about a settlement agreement lodged by Ghislaine Maxwell’s legal team. 

From Document 1237, docketed by Virginia Giuffre’s legal team.

At bottom, Doe 151’s objection centres on a) the fact that they testified pursuant to a protective order, b) that they are trying to live a private life and do not want any attention stemming from disclosure, and c) they “will be hounded and pursued by the media for comment and elaboration.” These reasons, yet again, do not justify continued sealing.

For starts Doe 151 and material associated with them has already been widely reported in the media. Indeed some material mentioned in their objections has already been unsealed by the second circuit in 2019 (and not “leaked,” as Doe 151 suggests in their objections).

With respect to their privacy concern, Doe 151’s involvement in the underlying action has already been widely reported.

Indeed, the objection notes that they have declined media inquires in pursuit of their privacy.

Doe 151’s concern of future, and at this point speculative, media attention is unpersuasive, as they have already explained hat they have been subject of media attention, have declined to engage, and will “continue to refuse comment” going forward.

With respect to Doe 151’s health concerns, although Plaintiff would not want to put anyone’s health in jeopardy, much of the information about Doe 151 is already largely public; thus, any privacy concerns cannot defeat the presumption of public access. 

Regardless, Doe 151’s reasons for not engaging with the media are irrelevant to this analysis, and to the extent that they feel unduly limited in their ability to respond, they can seek appropriate recourse. 

So who are these Does? I believe 53 and 54 are survivors or staff.

As I said above I believe 55 and 56 are in some way connected. 

We know there were redacted names in the released depositions that many have said were former President Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew and lawyer Alan Dershowitz.

The information about Doe 151 having health issues may make many people point to Dershowitz due to his recent filing in the case for defamation that Giuffre brought against him where he claimed ill health.

However Dershowitz can be found in the documents, in the subpoena to Jean Luc Brunel, Doc 229-6. Although it may be a missed redaction, as we found so many during past unsealing, particularly in the depositions.

Ghislaine Maxwell Little Black Book

In the subpoena to Jean Luc Brunel, the former model agent, who is now in a jail cell in France, was asked to provide documents:

1: All video tapes, audio tapes, photographs, including film negatives or film slides, CDD’s, or any other print or electronic media taken that relate to:

(1) Alan Dershowitz; (2) Virginia Roberts’ (3) Alan Dershowitz in the presence of Virginia Roberts’ and 4) Alan Dershowitz in the presence of Jeffrey Epstein and and/or any female agent or employee of Jeffrey Epstein.5:

All documents that relate to:

(1) Alan Dershowitz; (2) Virginia Roberts; (3) Alan Dershowitz in the presence of Virginia Roberts; and (4) Alan Dershowitz in the presence of Jeffrey Epstein and /or any female agent or employee of Jeffrey Epstein. 

Other names that are mentioned in this subpoena are Emmy Taylor, Sarah Kellen and Nadia Marcinkova.

Ghislaine Maxwell Retrial Call After Juror’s Media Statements

Ghislaine Maxwell Retrial Lawyers for convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell are asking for a retrial after a juror told media he used his own experience of abuse to persuade other jurors who doubted witnesses. 

Listen to the podcast Will Chatty Maxwell Juror Cause Mistrial

Prosecutors are also asking a judge to open an inquiry into the man’s statements. 

Meanwhile, the journalist who first ran the juror’s story is doubling down on her decision to run the interview.

While Lucia Osborne-Crowley has not answered our questions, she uploaded a series of statements to her Instagram.

Here are our questions:

Ghislaine Maxwell retrial

Maxwell, a 60-year-old Brit, was found guilty last week in New York City on five of six counts relating to child sex trafficking. 

Ghislaine Maxwell Retrial
The Maxwell juror Scotty David

The juror, Scotty David, said he told fellow jurors that, like some of Epstein’s victims, he had been abused as a child. 

Maxwell’s lawyers maintained this could be grounds for a new trial.

Ghislaine Maxwell Retrial

Ghislaine Maxwell will likely spend the next years in prison, but it is unclear what will now happen next with her case.

“I know what happened when I was sexually abused. I remember the colour of the carpet, the walls. Some of it can be replayed like a video,” he said he told the jury, according to The Independent. “But I can’t remember all the details, there are some things that run together.”

He told the news agency Reuters: “When I shared that, they were able to sort of come around on, they were able to come around on the memory aspect of the sexual abuse.”

The key issue appears to be whether Mr David disclosed his history of sexual abuse to the court.

Ghislaine Maxwell Retrial

The juror said he “flew through” the questionnaire used before trial to screen whether prospective jurors could judge Maxwell fairly.

But he said he did not recall being asked about his experiences of sexual abuse. He added that he would have answered the questions honestly.

Prosecutors wrote to the court asking for a further examination of the juror’s comments.

“The government has become aware that a juror has given several interviews to press outlets regarding his jury service in this case,” the US attorney’s letter said.

“In particular, the juror has described being a victim of sexual abuse. Assuming the accuracy of the reporting, the juror asserted that he ‘flew through’ the prospective juror questionnaire and does not recall being asked whether he had been a victim of sexual abuse, but stated that ‘he would have answered honestly’.”

Ghislaine Maxwell Retrial

Judge Alison Nathan responded on by giving the defence two weeks to file their motion for a new trial “in light of the issues raised in the parties’ letters”.

“Jeffrey Epstein accuser Ghislaine Maxwell seeks new trial after jury member says he used his own experience of being sexually abused as a child to persuade others who doubted victims.”

Transcript of Prince and the Pervert Podcast episode.

A global criminal conspiracy, a prince, a jailed socialite and a billionaire, who may or may not have been murdered. Welcome to the world of the Jeffrey Epstein, the Prince and the Pervert Podcast. Journalists Lisa and Jen bring you the ultimate deep dive.

Hello and welcome to the Prince and the pervert podcast. My name is Lisa Tait and my co host, Jen Tarran.
How are you today? I’m great, Lisa.

We’re here to update everyone about the developments in the Ghislaine Maxwell case. That’s right.

Just when we thought it was over, Jen stupidity. The more we look this case, I think we’ll go on for a very long time.

Ghislaine Maxwell Retrial

Because regardless of what happens, there will be appeal after appeal.
Correct? Yes.

And on that. am also going to be updating you on Prince Andrew and how he thinks the law in America should be changed to save him; special.

Andrew is special, so make way victims.

He’s going to barge his way through.

It’s a bit of a circus, this whole Prince Andrew thing.

Well, considering I just read an article in The Economist, Darling, and what it said was the monarchy, the hereditary monarchy.

It relies on the consent of the people to operate

But yet here we have a case where he allegedly disregarded someone else’s right to consent.

So much irony it is,

isn’t it?

So I think when you’ve grown up in that environment,

6D3EB274 640D 4B24 AACA 31FC14BF4120

Ghislaine Maxwell Retrial

Jen, you really think it’s my way or the highway and you get used to being able to push people around.

But what do his lawyers have left?

Because the judge who hasn’t yet at the time of recording made a decision, the judge Lewis Kaplan,

he seemed as though he wasn’t taking on board many of the things that Andrew’s lawyer was saying.

For starters,

Andrew is trying to use that 2000 and nine settlement agreement.

That Virginia Giuffre signed after she got state ordered compensation.

Have you read the language in that document from the beginning of the world?

Did a Scientologist write

that document? Oh,

I would love that.

You know, I’m obsessed with Scientology.

So perhaps they did Jen.

Or was it dirt?

Who is the author of that settlement agreement?

I’d love to know.

Now when she says Dersh,

Ghislaine Maxwell Retrial

she means Alan Dershowitz,

who was Epstein’s lawyer,

Trump’s lawyer,

OJ’s lawyer.

But Virginia did also alleged he assaulted her,

which he denies,

and she has a civil case against him at the moment.

He spent six months trying to get it dismissed as well,

using this settlement to and then he countersued her when he realised it wasn’t going to work.

So his name actually did come up in court yesterday during the hearing.

So fascinating.

Dershowitz is never far from this.



Do you want to take us through what is going on with Scotty the Juror and the Ghislaine Maxwell case?

Well, Scotty went and posted on his instagram about being one of the jurors.

Now Lisa and I found that INSTAGRAM post and decided because we are journalists, we have ethics, and in Australia we can’t interview jurors.

So we left at the hell alone. But of course, somebody else found it. Do no harm.

And unfortunately, Scotty has been doing some harm because Ghislaine Maxwell’s team has jumped on it, demanding that that means she needs a new trial.

He’s a self described survivor and spoke to journalists about how he spoke to the other jurors about his abuse and how you should trust survivors in how the survivor stories in this case rang true to him due to his own life experience.

Ghislaine Maxwell Retrial

Now that’s what jurors do. They explain their feelings or their belief or whatever based on their own life experience, a panel appears.

The big question is what he wrote on Question 48 in the questionnaire.

Now that was a question about have you been sexually assaulted or members of the family or people you know?

Ghislaine Maxwell Retrial

He has said he doesn’t remember what he put down or if he skipped that.

But that doesn’t matter. If he skipped that, why wasn’t it picked up that he was a survivor when it came to questioning him in court?

Ghislaine Maxwell Retrial

Quite frankly, if he didn’t write anything in that box, it’s up to Maxwell’s team to question him.

They obviously thought bloke he wouldn’t be a survivor and went on their merry way as we spoke well before the trial.

When they first released the various questionnaires and avoid a deer. as I prefer to say, it was obvious that G Max’s team was trying to rid the jury of any survivors.

It’s on their own heads that a survivor went through and was impanelled on that jury.

That’s not a reason for a new trial in my belief, so as journalists. And we’ve been reporting on the Epstein case now for 2.5 years, and we’ve had a lot of exclusives.

Although Jen, we’ve never branded them worldwide exclusives. Should we do that from now on?

I think we should, though. Everybody keeps stealing our exclusives and they become their exclusives but whatever.

And we said it will be new stories and social media and here we go straight away. 

I just want to say two things. Journalists and jurors. This is not about you, and I’d like to add again, do no harm. 

Now I’ve contacted Lucia, but I haven’t heard back from her yet.

Ghislaine Maxwell Retrial

But I did ask her some questions,

How do you feel that the survivors are really upset about this? I’ve heard nothing yet, but I’ve also asked her agent.

Well, that’s a good idea.

She may not have realised the implications of talking with this juror.

She may not have had a clue, but she’s a lawyer. She’s got a law degree.

As a journalist myself, there have been times where I have gotten. Jen, you’re always pulling me back, aren’t you?

Well, So I’ll be the first to admit sometimes I get carried away by the momentum of a story, but we try and do no harm.

We do, and that’s why we saw his post and just went We’re not touching that.

We do not wish to add to the trauma. So he’s got a lawyer now. Scotty the juror? Well yes.

And that lawyer He represented Anna Delvey, who was the woman that scammed everyone. She said she was like an heiress, and she went through the New York scamming everyone for holidays, and she went to all the parties and lived in hotels.

She was a cracker of a story that one.

Amazing. She’s out now. Really? Yes,

Scotty. The jurors got the same lawyer as her, which I find fascinating.

But see the government. The prosecution jumped on this immediately and put up a docket stating that there needed to be an inquiry about this.

Of course, Ghislaine’s Team came straight back going.

Oh, no need for an inquiry.

We should just It’s a mistrial straight away.

She needs a new trial, so they have taken advantage of Scotty talking. M Scotty probably spoke out in good faith, spoke out because it was important to him as a survivor.

But it’s caused so much damage, hopefully as the judge had already told the jurors that they could talk just to be careful.

Hopefully, she’s just going to ignore GMax’s issues, but it will come down to his answer.

Juror number 50 as Scotty was known. M His answer on question 48 whether or not he filled that incorrectly and admitted to being a survivor himself or skip that question if he lied on that question, then there’s going to be problems.

But it also comes down to G. Max’s team, not picking up in direct questioning that he was a survivor because they tried to avoid having any survivors on that jury.

A jury is supposed to be your peers Now. Sexual assault is so rampant in our society that at least three people in a group of 12 would be survivors. So honestly, kicking out all survivors on a jury panel isn’t giving up here group.

And also, Jen, do you think that Scotty is also overestimating the influence he had on the jury?

Prince Andrew Paedo Case: Law Must Be Overturned to Protect Royal

Prince Andrew Paedo Case: A besieged Prince Andrew, who is trying to block a woman from suing him over alleged sexual abuse, is trying to undermine a US law that gives sex assault victims more time to sue.

In a bold legal move, the attorney for the royal argued before Manhattan Judge Lewis Kaplin that a recent extension to a passed New York State law was unconstitutional.

Attorney Andrew Brettler said it should be stricken down and he had served notice on the New York Attorney-General.

The fallout from the Epstein scandal has been going on since about 2010

Prince Andrew Paedo Case

He stated the woman suing Prince Andrew Virginia Roberts Giuffre “took advantage” of extended statute of limitations, waiting 5 days before the deadline, which is “inherently unjust.”

If the judge agrees, it would not knock out a core component of Virginia Roberts’ arsenal in her case against Prince Andrew.

According to victims attorney Lisa Bloom, it could also knock out the rights of other sex abuse survivors.

A former teenage sex slave, Ms Roberts Giuffre claims she was trafficked by dead pedophile Jeffrey Epstein when she was 17 years old. She was allegedly forced to have sexual relations with everyone from Prince Andrew, disgraced model agent Jean-Luc Brunel and Alan Dershowitz—a claim all men have vociferously denied.

Prince Andrew Paedo Case

At the center of this legal battle is a new law signed by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo that extended the statute of limitations for child sexual abuse cases.

The legislation was intended to give survivors more time to seek justice and also apply retroactively, which could allow people like Roberts who were abused as children more time to sue those responsible for their pain.

“He doesn’t just want to block Virginia’s access to justice. He wants to block ALL child sexual abuse victims’ access,” Ms Bloom wrote on Twitter.

She said: “Prince Andrew has now done a complete reversal of his prior position that he would fully cooperate with any investigation into sexual abuse in Epstein’s orbit…Oh please. She (Giuffre) filed before the deadline. That’s all that should matter.”

Virginia Roberts Prince Andrew Showdown: Pictures of Prince Andrew

Virginia Roberts Prince Andrew: The Prince Andrew Virginia Roberts Giuffre saga is moving on to a new phase since Ghislaine Maxwell was declared a convicted child sex criminal.

The adversaries’ legal teams will face off at a pre-trial hearing in New York City on January 4. The royal’s team is attempting to have the civil action dismissed.

Andrew, the second son of English Monarch Queen Elizabeth II, is locked in a vicious battle over claims he assaulted Ms Roberts Giuffre three times when she was aged 17.

The Epstein whistleblower alleges Maxwell and Epstein trafficked her to Prince Andrew in London, New York and the US Virgin Islands.

In his notorious train crash BBC interview of 2019, the Duke of York said he and Epstein were friends until just after the American’s release from his prison sentence in Florida, around 2010.

From 2000 until 2003, the Prince also travelled the world with Epstein, Maxwell and other VIPs on the billionaire’s aircraft.

Prince Andrew would stay at Epstein’s homes whenever he visited the US. He said Epstein’s New York mansion was “convenient place” for him to stay when he had business.

The Royal also organised a “straightforward shooting weekend” to celebrate Maxwell’s 40th birthday at the Queen’s Balmoral estate.

It emerged in 2020 that US prosecutors want to speak to Prince Andrew as part of their investigation into Epstein’s death.

The pre-trial conference will be soon underway in federal court in Manhattan, so here is everything we know about the allegations, the civil lawsuit, and how it could impact the Duke of York, who stepped down from public life amid the fallout from the scandal.

The lawsuit filed in August in Manhattan federal court by Virginia Giuffre, one of Epstein’s most prominent alleged victims, claimed she was forced on three occasions to have sex with Prince Andrew when she was 17 and he was around 40.

Repeating prior claims, the suit alleges that the prince committed sexual assault at Epstein’s New York City mansion when she and “another victim” were forced to “sit on Prince Andrew’s lap as Prince Andrew touched her breast”.

It was alleged a puppet had been used by the Royal to grope Ms Roberts Giuffre, according to an Epstein assault survivor.

The royal has previously claimed the photo was doctored, and he has never faced criminal charges.

There are four girls in this case who have accused Maxwell of setting them up with the late financier and blackmailer, Jeffrey Epstein.

The jury asked in Tuesday to re-read testimonies from three of these accusers before coming to a decision.

Carolyn, who testified under her first name, was 14 when Epstein started to abuse her in the early 2000s.

Jane, who testified under a pseudonym, said he started to sexually abuse her when she was 14. She told jurors Maxwell was sometimes present for, and participated in, such abuse.

Ghislaine’s defence team says that Maxwell is innocent and is being framed by these women.

Closing arguments in the trial of Ghislaine Maxwell, who is accused of aiding her former boyfriend Jeffrey Epstein in the sexual abuse of underage girls, ended on Monday.

In its final statement, the prosecution said that Maxwell’s close relationship with Epstein and “manipulative” actions were key to the international abuse.

The prosecution asserted that Maxwell was not a victim or a unwitting accomplice in Epstein’s crimes.

Moreover, she was a co-conspirator who used her extensive network of contacts to launder money and recruit underage girls for Epstein.

Prosecutors also argued that Maxwell had lied to authorities and tried to obstruct the investigation into Epstein’s behavior.

Defense attorneys countered by saying that there was no evidence that Maxwell had ever engaged in sex abuse.

But the government accused Maxwell of touching the breast of three of the complainants.

Judge Alison Nathan said over the weekend that jurors would be instructed they may choose to convict Ms Maxwell if they concluded she either ignored or “consciously avoided” knowledge of Epstein’s underage sexual encounters.

Well now we have more friends from all over the world. The 1million downloads are humbling and amazing, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

There are still some lingering mysteries about the highest profile prisoner in the US remand system. At the same time, there is almost 3million pages of evidence from the prosecution to her lawyers. 

GHISLAINE MAXWELL. Youngest daughter of disgraced UK publisher Robert Maxwell and his French wife Betty. Maxwell Snr is said to have fled Chezoslovakia during WWII as a teenager. Despite his background Maxwell Snr ended up speaking English with a refined accent, and was fluent in many other languages.

He’s widely said he was a spy, a tag that also haunts his daughter.

She was the last of nine children, born in France on Xmas day 1961, hence her middle name being Noelle. She led a life of luxury, the right schools, mixing with the elite and yes that includes royalty.

In 1991 her father died in suspicious circumstances and was found dead floating in the water alongside his mega yacht, The Lady Ghislaine. It’s said she was her father’s favourite and in the days following his death she dealt with the press and the funeral arrangements, rather than her older brothers who were also involved in the family business.

Maxwell senior died under a cloud of scandal, there were millions missing from his companies pension fund. This resulted in court cases and bankruptcies, but that’s for another pod.

Maxwell Trial News

Said to be devastated by the death of her father, Ghislaine fled to the US, where she was reduced to living on a trust fund of a reported 100k a year. A huge amount for most, but to her a massive decline in her circumstances. At the time of her father’s death she knew JE, but it’s not known if she met JE before her Father, or if her Father introduced her.

She no doubt was the person who introduced JE to Prince Andrew.

For many years she was his live in companion, many have stated that she was desperate to marry epstein. She has acknowledged she worked for him, organising people for JE to hire, decorating his many homes, working with architects on renovation projects and other such things.

She stated in her 2016 deposition in the Guiffre V Maxwell defamation case that by 04 she had little to do with JE, in fact only did a bit of work for him and only saw him occasionally, most notably around the time of JE’s mother’s death in 04.

It is know that she started dating Gateway internet founder Ted Waitte in 04, a relationship that lasted until late 2010 or early 2011.

No doubt the whispers of JE florida arrest and sentencing affected her social standing and many believe her charity and foundation work following this was to rehabilitate herself and distance herself from the convicted paedophile.

She set up the save the ocean charity Terramar Project in 2012 and it’s rumoured that it was through her work with Terramar that she met now confirmed husband Tom Borgenson.

The Daily Mail announced the pair had met at the first annual Arctic Circle Assembly, a think tank for environmental, resources and trade centred on the Arctic Circle in late 2013, however our exclusive investigations have confirmed that Borgenson was listed on the board of Terramar in the March of 2013, months before the inaugural assembly. She closed  TerraMar on July 12 2019 days after JE’s arrest.

IT was around this time she stopped being on the social circuit with few photos surfacing from 2016 onways. By 2017 her lawyers stated they did not know where she was living.

Maxwell Trial News

In a lawsuit filed in  2017 by Sarah Ransome against Maxwell, Discrict Judge John Koelti granted a motion for ‘alternative servie’ on the grounds that the plantiffs efforts to reach Maxwell were persistently thwarted, including Ransome hiring private investigors to try and track her down. 

In august of 2019 it was reported that she was living in Manchester-by-the-sea with Borgerson, but he denied any relationship with Maxwell, stating that she was not living at the home and that he did not know where she was and denied any romantic partnership.

In October 2020 Borg stepped down as his role as CEO of CargoMetries, a head fund investment company involved in maritime data anyalyics  – shipping trade route info, due to his association with Maxwell.

It was rumoured that the pair had been dating since Borgenson divorced his wife in 2015, although our investigations point to the pair hooking up years prior.

After Epstein’s arrest she was still missing and the only hint of her location was the Los Angeles In-And-Out burger photo.

Various news reports described her as being on the run, even to saying she had been hiding out in a French castle or in paris, locations not too far-fetched as she is a French citizen. She also holds UK and US citizenship.

In late December 2019 it emerged that she was one of the people the FBI was investigating for facilitating Epstein, and it later emerged that her lawyers had been communicating with the SDNY via email, but refused to disclose where she was or accept on her behalf service of three civil  lawsuits against her. 

On July 2 2020 the FBI raided her home in Bradford, New Hampshire, a property she bought using an LLC.

She and an unidentified man viewed the property giving their names as Jan and Scott Marshall, and that she was a journalist and wanted seclusion.

Former Epstein Girlfriend Denies Group Massage Encounter

“Were you and Mr Dubin comfortable with the relationship between Mr Epstein and your children?” asked Jeffrey Pagliuca, one of Maxwell’s attorneys.

“Yes, we were,” she said.

Mr Pagliuca: “Did it appear to you that Mr Epstein was fond of your children?”

Former Epstein Girlfriend Eva Dubin

Mrs Dubin responded: “yes he was”.

The defense witness also testified that she never observed any inappropriate conduct between Jeffrey Epstein and any teenage girls or underage females.

Mr Pagliuca queried claims from Maxwell accuser Jane about group sexual encounters.

Together the duo funds a cancer facility in New York, which Epstein also donated to under the ruse of a trust named for one of  the Dubin’s daughters.

The Epstein trust was reportedly named after the Dubin daughter Epstein wanted to marry.

There were multiple reports Epstein had a naked photo of the same child on his wall.

Elizabeth Loftus Ghislaine Maxwell’s Memory Expert

Elizabeth Loftus A false memory expert who promotes “repression folklore” theory is coming to court to critique the testimony of Jeffrey Epstein survivors.

As day 11 of the Ghislaine Maxwell trial starts, we are expected to this week hear from Dr Elizabeth Loftus, a Professor at UC Irvine.

Elizabeth Loftus
Listen to the Prince and the Pervert Podcast

Loftus is best known for her work on the misinformation effect and eyewitness memory,and the creation and nature of false memories,including recovered memories of childhood sexual abuse.

“Under certain circumstances, memory goes array; it gets distorted. And that can ruin people’s lives,” she said in 2015.

She’s also consulting to Prince Andrew, plus has worked for Harvey Weinstein and serial killer Ted Bundy.

Elizabeth Loftus

Her work is controversial.

Loftus says she has been insulted by a prosecutor, attacked by an airplane passenger who recognized her, received hate mail, and received death threats.

Moreover, she has had to have protection by security guards while giving invited addresses.

Ghislaine Maxwell News

Her invitation to give the keynote address at the New Zealand Psychological Society’s conference in 2000 provoked the society’s director of scientific affairs, John Read, to resign from his position and for conference attendees to distribute materials critical of Loftus’ work.

Elizabeth Loftus stated that she “didn’t wear her best jacket” to give her address for “fear of flying tomatoes.”

We know of her from our other podcast Goodbye Glam Squad , which features Tom Girardi, the fraudulent lawyer from the Erin Brockervich movie.

The powerhouse Hollywood lawyer was married to a real housewife and he has allegedly misappropriated about $200million.

“I have been involved in many cases concerning Catholic priests and teachers because …but there are also false cases,” she said in 2015 on Girardi’s now-defunct podcast Champions of Justice.

What I see in some of these situations…there’s some publicity about the case and other people come forward. They try to use the continuous memory for the false memory.”

Girardi, who now says he has rapid onset dementia, interviewed Loftus for 40 minutes.

Dr Elizabeth Loftus

Repression folklore: Controversy

She said:“Some of these cases are breathing new life into this repression folklore.”

Loftus has researched memory since the 1970s and says some people constructed ” a memory from something that never happened”.

“Bizarre cases that were being litigated claiming that they had been raped in satanic rituals, endured animal sacrifices and baby breeding and baby sacrifices,” she said.

Elizabeth Loftus

She adds: ”How does someone come to believe something so rich and detailed? It’s their truth…it can feel very much like a real memory.”

Prince and the Pervert Podcast Transcript

Lisa: I’m here today to tell you about the false memory expert who promotes “repression folklore theory.”

This week we’re expected to see Dr. Elizabeth Loftus, a professor at UC Irvine.

Loftus is best known for her work on the misinformation effect and eyewitness memory and the creation and nature of false memories, including recovered memories of childhood sexual abuse.

But guess what? She’s consulting to Prince Andrew and Ghislaine Maxwell, and in the past, she’s worked for disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and serial killer Ted Bundy as a witness in the court setting.

She’s very controversial, as one could imagine.

She was also attacked by an airplane passenger, who recognized her. Plus Loftus has received hate mail, death threats and had to have protection by security guards while giving out invited addresses.

Jen and I know of her from our other podcast, Goodbye Glam Squad.

He has also misappropriated about $200 million.

Now in 2015, Tom, who now says he has rapid onset dementia, that’s a long story. And if you want to get across that you’ll have to watch the last series of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, because his wife, Erika Jayne Gerardi is on the show. She also knows nothing.

What is going on? We are spending a lot of time on memory. It’s certainly fallible, isn’t it? Now Tom interviewed Loftus on his champions of justice podcast.

Yes, that’s right champions of justice. And he even had the Queen song Champions in the intro. But we’ve listened to this episode so you don’t have to, unless you want to, of course.

Now she says she has been involved in many cases concerning Catholic priests and teachers because, quote, there are also false cases.

Elizabeth Loftus does acknowledge that there are legitimate cases of sexual abuse. So she’s not she’s not discounting & is not questioning the trauma of people who have suffered sexual abuse.

But what she sees is there is some publicity about a case and other people come forward, they tried to use their continuous memory for the false memory.

So it just builds upon your existing memory, this alleged false memory.

Got it? Trust me, I’m a psychiatrist on the internet not.

“Some of these cases are breathing new life into this repression, folk law as in memory, memories that you get later, long after the alleged incident,” she said to Girardi.

Now, let’s give you an example of the kind of research that she does. She had one study which used a simulated car accident, and she used a stop sign in it, but was asking a leading question about a yield sign. And she said many of the witnesses in the study said it was a yield sign, not a stop sign when in fact, it was a stop sign.

So quote, “they’ve constructed a memory from something that never happened. Memory is contaminated.”

She goes on lighted to say that there are “bizarre cases that are being litigated, claiming that they had been raped in satanic rituals, and do it animal sacrifices and baby breathing and baby sacrifices.”

“How does someone come to believe something so rich and detailed? It’s their truth,”

Elizabeth Loftus acknowledges it can feel very much like a real memory.

She was also involved in the Oliver North testimony with the elat Iran Contra affair in the 80s, early 90s.

And she was looking in relation to Oliver North about the liability of memory.

She says under certain circumstances, memory goes awry, it gets distorted, and that can ruin people’s lives. Well, no doubt it can.

But she’s also worried that in the future now I hope some of those weirdo Epstein friends aren’t listening to this. People may be able to plant memories in the minds of others.

Now that raises some ethical issues, and I’m sure if we went to the little black book, belong to Epstein, where there’d be quite a few people we could call about that.

So you will see Elizabeth Loftus this week, with Ghislaine Maxwell this week,more than likely.

She will be testifying on behalf of Prince Andrew.

There’s an interesting New Yorker piece that she was profiled in talking about when she first met Weinstein.

And his question to her was: “How could something that was so consensual, be construed in this fashion as an assault?”

Well, I suppose that’s the nub of the issue. Weinstein in his warped mind, convinced the world thought that it was consensual.

Who knows? As we said in the podcast this week, 35 defense witnesses are being called. Some of them want to testify anonymously because they don’t want their lives ruined.

Others have travel problems and then there are some whose lawyers can’t be found over the weekend.

So be interesting to see when we finally get that list of names.

The government is opposing any anonymous witnesses.

As you can see from the Elizabeth Loftus situation certainly can get heated.

So to a degree I understand people’s reluctance to testify in support of Maxwell.

Some of them do have to travel so we believe that this may mean that coming from the UK or other parts of Europe because Maxwell’s mother was French. The accused also speaks fluent French.

Ghislaine Maxwell Prince Andrew and Jeff Epstein What We Know

Maxwell and Andrew claim this photo is a fake. Virginia Giuffre and the FBI say it’s genuine.

Ghislaine Maxwell Prince Andrew and Jeff Epstein: Prince Andrew, the Duke of York and second son of Queen Elizabeth II, is rarely out of the news due to his relationship with socialite Ghislaine Maxwell and dead pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Updated December 31 2021: Prince Andrew failed in another attempt to halt Virginia Giuffre’s sexual abuse lawsuit against him.

His attorneys filed a motion in New York federal court yesterday, which claimed that the US federal courts don’t have jurisdiction over her case because the Epstein whistleblower lives in Australia.

But Giuffre’s lawyer David Boies says that Prince Andrew is trying another delaying technique.

Giuffre filed the lawsuit in Manhattan federal court last year, claiming that she had been trafficked as an underage sex slave to Prince Andrew by billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.

She alleged had sex with the Duke of York at locations including Ghislaine Maxwell’s London home.

His attorneys have repeatedly asked the judge to throw out Giuffre’s claims on jurisdictional grounds.

Maxwell, who is accused of trafficking girls for Epstein, is facing trial in a US Court for sex trafficking. She is Prince Andrew’s long-term associate and they met many years ago in the elite circles of the UK aristocracy.

The Prince denies any impropriety but admits visiting Epstein in New York after he was released from a Florida jail in 2010. This photo makes it hard to say otherwise.

Moreover, this saga has been going on for almost 20 years now, and it doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon.

Lawyers are using Hollywood tactics to defend Prince Andrew against claims he assaulted a ten sex slave. 

Andrew had a weakness for the girls and fast life, Epstein provided that fantasy,” remarked Epstein’s reputed mentor Stephen Hoffenberg, who said the pedophile and Prince Andrew’s friendship began much earlier than stated.

In early August 2021, Virginia Roberts Giuffre (who now lives in Australia) brought a lawsuit against the Duke of York, claiming he sexually abused her on multiple occasions. 

The abuse was said to have taken place when she was 17 and involved the late, disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, as well as jailed socialite Ghislaine Maxwell.

What’s Happened to Ghislaine Maxwell

What’s Happened to Ghislaine Maxwell: As the world awaits the names of the 35 defence witnesses Ghislaine Maxwell wants to call, some want to their testimonies to be anonymous.

Listen to The Prince and the Pervert Podcast The Defence Witnesses Who Don’t Want to Be There.

At the same time, others are saying they can’t get to New York and some of their lawyers are uncontactable.

In a letter to Judge Alison Nathan, Maxwell’s lawyer Bobbi Sternheim wrote: ‘Three of the defence witnesses have requested to testify under their first names or under a pseudonym. 

Maxwell with Epstein on his plabe and Jean-Luc Brunel, jailed model agent

The court’s ruling on this issue may impact the willingness of these witnesses to testify, thereby compromising Ms Maxwell’s right to present her defence

We are still trying to make travel arrangements for defence witnesses, many of whom are coming from locations out of the district and abroad.’

Ms Sternheim also wrote the government had indicated it opposed the request for the witnesses to be anonymous.
