‘Prince Andrew was urged by lawyers today to ‘get on a plane’ and answer questions from the FBI as part of a reciprocal deal that would see US spy’s wife Anne Sacoolas sent to the UK where she is accused of killing teen Harry Dunn.
The demand was made in an extraordinary press conference in New York where Lisa Bloom, lawyer for alleged victims of billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, teamed up with Dunn family lawyer Radd Seiger in an attempt to break the stalemate that has ensnared both of their cases in political red tape.
Mrs Sacoolas was charged with causing Mr Dunn’s death by dangerous driving in December but US secretary of state Mike Pompeo rejected an extradition request for the 42-year-old last month.
Nineteen-year-old Mr Dunn was killed when his motorbike crashed into a car outside US military base RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire on August 27 last year.
The lawyers appeared alongside one of Epstein’s accusers, a model named Kiki who appealed to the Queen to persuade Prince Andrew to help the US authorities with anything he witnessed in his time with Epstein.
Ms Bloom highlighted what she called ‘eerie parallels’ between the cases that involved ‘everyday teenagers’.
‘Harry Dunn was 19. Kiki was 19,’ she said. ‘In both cases an innocent teenager was victimized and the government appears to be protecting the wrongdoer.’
