Prince Andrew has been giving "zero cooperation" to officials investigating the crimes of Jeffrey Epstein, said a U.S. prosecutor on Monday. The late sex offender's relationship with the royal icon has generated significant controversy in the United Kingdom.
U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman, who prior to Epstein's alleged suicide had charged the financier with child sex trafficking, said on Monday that American law enforcement had reached out to the prince's attorneys, but that Andrew has not yet agreed to be interviewed.
Andrew has been accused by one woman, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, of having sex with her when she was 17-years-old. Giuffre claims that Epstein flew her around the world and pressured her into having sex with multiple older men. Andrew has denied the allegations.
The prince has previously suggested that he would comply with any investigation into Epstein's crimes.
