Epstein Accuser Virginia Roberts: Prince Andrew 'Knows What Happened'
Roberts blasts the Duke of York in new interview set to air next week
Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts, who claims she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew nearly 20 years ago, slammed the Duke of York's denial of her allegations saying: "He knows what happened, I know what happened, and there's only one of us telling the truth."
Roberts, who now goes by the name of Virginia Giuffre, blasted the prince during a BBC interview that is scheduled to air next week.
The prince claimed he did not have sex with any of Epstein's trafficked women in his properties during the now widely regarded 'disastrous' interview.
The royal also claimed he had "no recollection of ever meeting" Roberts, "none whatsoever."
"I have absolutely no memory of that photograph,” the prince insisted.
“I’m afraid to say that I don’t believe that photograph was taken in the way that has been suggested."
But Roberts claimed Andrew "was an abuser; he was a participant."
She added, "the first time in London, I was so young. Ghislaine woke me up in the morning and said, 'you're gonna meet a prince today."
"I didn't know at that point that I was going to be trafficked to a prince," she said.
"We went out to Club Tramp. Prince Andrew got me alcohol; it was in the VIP section. I'm pretty sure it was vodka," she added.
“He knows what happened, I know what happened and there’s only one of us telling the truth.”— Panorama 🌐 (@BBCPanorama) November 28, 2019

On Thursday, London's Metropolitan Police revealed they received a complaint in July 2015 which accused Epstein "and a British woman" of "nonrecent trafficking for sexual exploitation."
Roberts alleges that she received money from Epstein to have sex with Prince Andrew on three occasions in 2001.
She claims she was 17 when they first had sex.
Metropolitan Police Cmdr Alex Murray said the department interviewed Roberts before concluding in 2016 that it "was not the appropriate authority to conduct inquiries in these circumstances."
"Following the legal advice, it was clear that any investigation into human trafficking would be largely focused on activities and relationships outside the U.K.," said Murray.
Earlier this month, Epstein's' latest accuser, known only as "Jane Doe 15," said the financier's co-conspirators "deserve their day in court as well."
The alleged victim said that Prince Andrew must speak to the authorities about what he knows and "give a statement under oath."
