Britain’s Prince Andrew has reportedly been summoned by the US Justice Department to answer questions about his relationship with deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. The pair were friends for over a decade.
The Southern District Court of New York has asked Prince Andrew to testify in the ongoing criminal investigation into Epstein’s alleged accomplices via a Mutual Legal Assistance request filed with the UK Home Office, ABC News reported on Sunday.
According to the Sun, which first broke the story, the request was formally lodged last month.
Prince Andrew could be forced to provide testimony under oath in a UK court if the Home Office approves the US court’s request.
