The American financier Jeffrey Epstein, accused of sex trafficking, tried to gather incriminating material on Prince Andrew, forcing the minor to have an intimate relationship with a member of the UK royal family, The Guardian reported referring to the US court documents.
According to documents of the New York court, this is an alleged crime committed on Epstein's Virgin Islands.
The document claims that the financier instructed the girl, known to be Virginia Roberts Giuffre, to “give the prince whatever he demanded and report back to him on the details of the sexual abuse.”
Epstein reportedly sold the girl into sexual slavery to powerful people to “ingratiate himself with them for business, personal, political and financial gain, as well as to obtain potential blackmail information.”
They included “numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister, and other world leaders.”
