Prince Andrew accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre tells BBC 'there’s only one of us telling truth' after he denies meeting her
Virginia Roberts Giuffre in the BBC interview, which was her first in UK, said 'it was a really scary time in my life'.
Jeffrey Epstein and Prince Andrew accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre says, "It was a really scary time in my life" in a clip from a forthcoming BBC interview.
Roberts, who has claimed that Epstein made her have sex with Prince Andrew three times, added, "He knows what happened, I know what happened, and there’s only one of us telling the truth."
The 'Panorama' interview will air on Monday, December 2, as part of 'The Prince and the Epstein Scandal'. It was meant to be a 30-minute interview initially but has been extended to an hour, BBC announced on Twitter. "Tune in at the slightly later time of 9 pm on BBC One to watch," the network tweeted.
Prince Andrew, in a "car crash" interview recently denied the allegations and said he had never even met Roberts. “I have no recollection of ever meeting this lady, none whatsoever,” said the 59-year-old, who has since stepped down from public duties by the Queen. Andrew's came in after journalist Emily Maitlis asked him to respond to her allegations.
"She says she met you in 2001, she says she dined with you, danced with you at Tramp Nightclub in London. She went on to have sex with you in a house in Belgravia belonging to Ghislaine Maxwell, your friend. Your response?" Maitlis had asked him. He was also slammed online for his lack of empathy for Epstein's alleged victims. Andrew said he had spent the day with his daughter Princess Beatrice.
Roberts has said in court papers that she had been forced to have sex with Andrew when she was still 17, which is below the age of consent. In August, Buckingham Palace released a statement defending Prince Andrew and denying any wrongdoing. "Any suggestion of impropriety with under-age minors' by the duke was 'categorically untrue.'" they said.
