THE FBI is reportedly set to release new findings on Jeffrey Epstein this week – which will allegedly include “new information” on Prince Andrew.
According to the Mirror, the FBI’s fresh documents to be sent to Epstein accusers will include information on the Duke of York.
The outlet does not specify what kind of information will be given to victims.
Virginia Giuffre, an outspoken accuser who claims Epstein and his ex-lover Ghislaine Maxwell pimped her out, has claimed in court docs she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew in 2001 when she was 17 years old.
He’s also been dragged into Maxwell's prosecution and is set to feature heavily in her New York trial next year.
Buckingham Palace has strenuously denied the allegations made against Prince Andrew – which have previously been thrown out of court.
A palace spokesperson said: "Any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue.
“It is emphatically denied that the Duke of York had any form of sexual contact or relationship with Virginia Roberts.
“Any claim to the contrary is false and without foundation.”
The Mirror reported on Wednesday that the arrests of more people in Epstein’s circle are expected.
It was reported last month in a trove of newly unsealed documents that in a 2016 deposition, Maxwell denied connecting Giuffre or underage girls with Prince Andrew.
Maxwell called Giuffre an “awful fantasist" and asked, according to the court docs: “Are we tallying all the lies?”
She said she couldn’t recall taking Giuffre out for a night of clubbing with Prince Andrew in London.
“Her tissue of lies is extremely hard to pick apart what is true and what isn’t,” Maxwell said in the deposition.
The deposition was part of more than 400 pages of transcripts from the deposition that were ordered by a judge to be released as part of a lawsuit.
Many names and several pages in the deposition were blacked out, though information around some names – including the prince’s – made it obvious who was being referenced.
