Metropolitan Police Service in the United Kingdom has completed reviews of information related to Prince Andrew and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and will take “no further action.”
A Met Police spokesperson told the British tabloid The Sun that the department reviewed a document released in August “as part of a US civil action” — presumably Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s lawsuit against the prince for alleged sexual abuse — and as well as “information passed to us by a media organization” in June.
Both of the reviews are “concluded,” the spokesperson said.
The Met’s action does not affect Giuffre’s New York lawsuit, which claims that Epstein forced her to have sex with Andrew at the home of Ghislaine Maxwell, who is currently awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges. Giuffre says she was under age at the time.
The prince denies the claims.
The spokesperson said that although the department has finished the review announced by Met chief Cressida Dick in August, “The Metropolitan Police Service continues to liaise with other law enforcement agencies who lead the investigation into matters related to Jeffrey Epstein.”
Epstein died from an apparent suicide in jail while awaiting trial on his own sex trafficking charges in 2019.
