A message written by the late billionaire paedophile and released as part of a court case in the US shows he was presenting Andrew, 63, as a potential investor in 2011, despite the royal claiming to have ended all contact in 2010.
Epstein’s victims last night called on the prince to speak to the FBI, which he has so far refused to do. It is not known if Andrew – who was seen riding in Windsor today – knew Epstein had mentioned him in the email exchange.
The victims’ representative, US attorney Spencer Kuvin, told the Mirror: ‘It appears that either Epstein was highly overselling his relationship with Prince Andrew or that the duke may not have been entirely truthful about when his friendship ended.’
One victim, who was awarded compensation under the Epstein victims’ compensation program, said: ‘The emails raise serious questions. Why would Jeffrey be lauding him as an investor if he was no longer in contact?’
