**Shocking Allegations Against Prince Andrew in Jeffrey Epstein Case: No Investigation by U.K. Police**
The recent unsealing of documents related to Jeffrey Epstein has brought to light shocking allegations against Prince Andrew, but despite this, there has been no new investigation initiated by the U.K. police. The released deposition accuses Prince Andrew of groping a woman’s breast, and while these allegations have caused widespread concern, the authorities have not taken further action.
**What the Documents Say**
The deposition reveals an allegation made by Johanna Sjoberg, claiming that she was groped by Prince Andrew in 2001 when she was 21 years old. This accusation is not a new development, with Buckingham Palace previously refuting Sjoberg’s claims as “categorically untrue.” Sjoberg recounts meeting Andrew at Epstein’s residence in New York, accompanied by Ghislaine Maxwell and Virginia Giuffre. Maxwell introduced Sjoberg to Andrew, and an unsettling incident unfolded where they posed for a photo with a caricature puppet of Prince Andrew, during which Andrew allegedly groped Sjoberg.
In a deposition excerpt involving Maxwell, she seemingly confirmed the existence of the puppet, referring to it as a “caricature of Prince Andrew” at Epstein’s home. When questioned about the incident Sjoberg described, Maxwell expressed uncertainty, stating, “I recollect the puppet but I don’t recollect anything around the puppet.”
**Reaction in the U.K.**
The Metropolitan Police in London released a statement asserting that they are not conducting any new investigations into Prince Andrew in light of the released court documents related to Epstein. The documents also included accusations by Virginia Giuffre, who claimed Prince Andrew sexually assaulted her on three separate occasions when she was 17. Despite these allegations, Prince Andrew denied them and professed to have no recollection of meeting Giuffre, although photographic evidence contradicts this claim.
Graham Smith, CEO of the British anti-monarchy group Republic, has expressed disappointment in the lack of thorough investigation into the allegations against Prince Andrew. He emphasized the gravity of the situation, highlighting the substantial settlement amount paid by Andrew to Giuffre and urging authorities to conduct a comprehensive examination into the events and individuals involved.
The recent release of unsealed documents pertaining to the Jeffrey Epstein case has put a spotlight on the allegations against Prince Andrew. Despite the serious nature of these accusations, the response from the U.K. police has been a cause for concern, as no new investigations have been initiated. The public awaits further developments as the implications of these revelations continue to unfold.
