London Police To Take No Further Action Against Prince Andrew After Reviewing Sex Assault Allegations

Publish date:

The Metropolitan Police announced that it would not take any "further action" into sex abuse claims against Prince Andrew and Jeffery Epstein. 

The Metropolitan Police Service said it has dropped its investigation after reviewing a number of documents, including those released in August 2021 as part of Virginia Roberts Giuffre's civil lawsuit in the United States.

"This review has concluded and we are taking no further action," the department said in a statement.


Giuffre claimed she was forced to perform sex acts with Prince Andrew and that she was trafficked by Epstein and forced to have sex with his friends, including Prince Andrew when she was underage.

"We also reviewed information passed to us by a media organization in June 2021. This review is complete and no further action will be taken," the Metropolitan Police said.

This is separate from the U.S. investigation. US authorities have accused the prince of refusing to cooperate when they have tried to interview him as part of the investigation into the alleged sex trafficking ring ​Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell are suspected of running.
