Prince Andrew ‘must cooperate’ over Epstein after Ghislaine Maxwell charged - BBC Newsnight

Sir Keir Starmer says Prince Andrew must cooperate with the FBI over his links to Jeffrey Epstein. But what should this cooperation look like? We ask both sides of the Atlantic. Subscribe to our channel here:

Labour leader and former Director of Public Prosecutions Sir Keir Starmer has said Prince Andrew should cooperate with the FBI over his relationship with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell.
The Duke of York, who denies any allegations against him, has publicly stated that he has cooperated on at least three occasions. The US has also stated it seeking voluntary cooperation from the Duke of York. So what should happen now?
The Duke of York is also not a target of the investigation.
At the start of July 2020, Ms Maxwell was charged with six counts of sexual exploitation, grooming and enticing minors - as young as fourteen - to engage in illegal sex acts with Epstein, assisting Epstein, trafficking the minors across states and on occasion taking part herself in the sexual abuse.
Ms Maxwell has previously denied any involvement in or knowledge of Epstein's alleged sexual misconduct.
The charges relate to the years from 1994 to 1997 and include some allegations relating to an alleged victim in London.
Ms Maxwell is a friend of Prince Andrew - when Newsnight interviewed him last year, he told us how the socialite introduced him in 1999 to Epstein.
The Duke of York has denied any allegations of impropriety.
Epstein died in prison on 10 August as he awaited, without the chance of bail, his trial on sex trafficking charges.
US Correspondent David Grossman reports the latest from Washington DC.
In the studio, Emily Maitlis is joined by the former Chief Prosecutor for the North West of England, Nazir Afzal, and from Michigan Conchita Sarnoff - the first person to make public the friendship between Prince Andrew and Epstein, in 2010.

  • PEOPLE, these "victims" were NOT CHILDREN - they were all teenagers, well aware of what was expected. If you are a "victim" you don't go back a second, third, fourth, et cetera time - you disassociated yourself from Ghislaine or whatever her name was. These were teenaged hussies who wanted the attention, the jet flights, trips to islands, et cetera - now 20 years later, they are "victims." I call BS.

  • There is a new Child Protection law in New York that gives victims more time to file claims, and I had heard the NPA had been overturned, so I think the American woman in this interview doesn't have all the information in this case. Otherwise, why would Maxwell even be in jail now? No, she is going to serve time, but she may get less if she is willing to talk.

  • Epstein is not dead, we all know he's not dead. the queen is complicit in all this she has been protecting and enabling Andrew for years, the queen is not a nice little old lady, she is a ruthless, heartless POS, who has no respect for the people she vowed to serve. It is time these people were stopped from bullying people who are being questioned under oath, I am sick of them getting away with everything just because they have titles, now they can add my title to their's POS

  • So let me get this right. Maxwell publishes the list as it was initially planned by the Israeli intelligence services and she gets to walk free as an appreciation of her cooperation. Wow!! This is clever.. Not only she abused all these girls but she is allowed to keep her wealth and just walk way. Truly evil plan.

One saw them engaged in sexual activities on St James. This is an absolute travesty. The Home Office is turning a blind eye. Haul his ass in !

  • Were they victims or groupies? Did they go there for a good time or were they coerced? Did they have a motive for filing this law suit? Did they file the law suit with the intention of havng a massive payout from a dead man's fortune? People lie for thousands of dollars. People will lie for millions of dollars. Let's hear ALL THE TRUTH from the world wide media instead of ONE SIDE of the story.

  • How in the world can a previous deal with a child Human trafficker give immunity to his partners who are also involved in the same crime? What idiot judge would agree to accept just an inhumane deal? I don't get it. Am I to understand that myself and 10 others committed a crime and I am the only one accused of this crime, I can then strike up a deal to forgive and ignore the 10 other people who helped me commit the crime I'm accused of? Seriously? What total nonsense is this. Hey guys, o.k. I've been caught and am in jail, great... just please don't prosecute or blame my accomplices. O.k.? O.K. no problem... if you commit suicide we will let everyone else just slide on by without any consequences. For Fuck sake.... what kind of crap are they trying to feed us in this year of our LORD. AUGUST 2020? GHISLANE MAXWELL will need to face her maker in due time. May GOD BLESS HER SOUL in HELL....

  • Please, whoever is at fault, stop filing your nails! I couldn’t even finish listening while someone on audio clipped and filed their nails! If this continues with this set of reporters, we *will* figure out which probable female (by the sound of the length of nails being filed), and promptly report it to the BBC group responsible for these broadcasts. I am shocked with the amateurism this conveys, certainly, but mostly with the annoying sound, I have no idea what was said, so irritated am I with this audio. Fix it BBC, or I can not listen to your new broadcasts any longer. 😡

If he was innocent he wouldn't have cut everything and went into hiding but instead cooperated. Hope she names him. He must be sweating, oh wait he apparently doesn't 🤣oh that damn condition...😂
