Prince Andrew, son of UK Queen, becomes focus of media attention after Jeffery Epstein hangs himself
Prince Andrew, the son of Queen Elizabth II, became focus of world media and subject of social media debate after suspected sex trafficker Jeffery Epstein committed suicide in his prison cell in US.
According to preliminary reports, the incarcerated multi-millionaire fiancier hanged himself a day after court papers released on Friday revealed that the son Queen Elizabeth was accused of groping a woman at Jeffery Epstein’s US home.
BBC reported that the allegations are contained in documents from a 2015 defamation case.
UK’s royal family said the document was related to proceedings in the United States to which Prince Andrew was not a party.
While Epstein was accused of abusing girls as young as 14 , Bukingham Place felt it necessary to state “any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue”.
The woman who accused the British royal family member of groping her was identified as Johanna Sjoberg who claimed that Prince Andrew touched her breast while they sat on a couch in Epstein’s Manhattan Apartment in 2001.
“I just remember someone suggesting a photo, and they told us to go get on the couch. And so Andrew and Virginia sat on the couch, and they put the puppet, the puppet on her lap.
“And so then I sat on Andrew’s lap, and I believe on my own volition, and they took the puppet’s hands and put it on Virginia’s breast, and so Andrew put his on mine,” she was quoted as recalling in the documents on Friday.
