New Epstein Accuser Calls for Prince Andrew to Testify 'Under Oath'
Says Jeffrey Epstein's co-conspirators 'deserve their day in court'
The latest accuser to speak out about deceased sex offender Jeffrey Epstein has said that Britain's Prince Andrew must speak to the authorities about what he knows and "give a statement under oath."
Epstein's alleged victim, known only as "Jane Doe 15," says the convicted pedophile's death shouldn't result in the case being closed, insisting that the Clinton-linked financier's co-conspirators "deserve their day in court as well."
Doe 15 told reporters she suffered a "vicious, prolonged sexual assault" at the hands of Jeffrey Epstein.
She is the latest in a long line of women to sue Epstein's estate for alleged sexual abuses that occurred when they were minors.
When a reporter asked Doe and her attorney Gloria Allred to comment on the allegations of sexual abuse by Andrew, the Duke of York, Doe urged him to come forward and speak to the authorities.
“Prince Andrew, and any others who were close to Epstein, should come forward and give a statement under oath on what information they have,” Jane Doe 15 told reporters.
“Just because Epstein is dead does not mean that others around him don’t deserve their day in court as well.”
In an interview with the BBC aired on Saturday, Prince Andrew was pressed on his friendship with Epstein, and an accusation made by Virginia Giuffre that he had sex with her at Epstein's house when Ms. Giuffre - then Virginia Roberts - was just 17.
Prince Andrew denied having sex with Ms. Giuffre, but the interview created a wave of criticism directed at the royal.
Accountancy firm KPMG on Monday announced it would not renew its sponsorship of the prince's entrepreneurship initiative, [email protected].
Epstein's new accuser
Jane Doe 15, now 31, gave a press conference in Los Angeles on Monday with her lawyer, Gloria Allred.
She accused Epstein of raping her at his New Mexico ranch when she was 15 after she had met his secretary during a 2004 school trip to New York.
According to her lawsuit, the secretary told her Epstein was interested in helping girls from poorer backgrounds.
She was flown on his private jet to his ranch in New Mexico with several other young girls, she said.
She alleges he told her to give him a massage, then sexually assaulted her.
"Epstein took my sexual innocence," she said during the press conference.
Epstein, 66, was found dead in jail in August while awaiting trial on federal child sex trafficking charges.
He was accused of sexually abusing dozens of young girls, some as young as 14. He pleaded not guilty.
Jane Doe 15 did not accuse Prince Andrew of any wrongdoing but called on him to come forward with more information.
Ms. Allred said she had called on Prince Andrew to "voluntarily meet with the FBI and prosecutors who are investigating this criminal case in New York and also to provide his deposition under oath."
