Jeffrey Epstein accuser urges Prince Andrew to 'come clean' https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-49486590
A woman who accused the late financier Jeffrey Epstein of sex abuse and alleged she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew as a 17-year-old has urged the UK royal to "come clean".
Speaking after a hearing for alleged victims in the wake of Epstein's death, Virginia Giuffre told reporters the prince "knows what he's done".
The Duke of York denies the accusation.
Epstein killed himself in his prison cell this month while awaiting trial on sex trafficking and conspiracy charges.
The 66-year-old tycoon - who once counted President Donald Trump, former President Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew as friends - was found unresponsive on 10 August.

About 15 plaintiffs were given an opportunity to speak at the New York City court hearing that brings an end to the criminal case - which is now closed because of Epstein's death.
The women spoke of their anger, saying Epstein had cheated justice by taking his own life.
Prosecutors said the investigation was ongoing and charges could still be brought against any co-conspirators.
What did Ms Giuffre say?
Ms Giuffre, 35, has alleged she was forced on three occasions to have sex with Prince Andrew, which he denies.
She has accused Epstein of keeping her as a "sex slave". In court on Tuesday, she said: "My hopes were quickly dashed and my dreams were stolen."
Ms Giuffre has said in a court deposition she was a 15-year-old working at Mr Trump's Mar-a-Lago golf resort in Florida when she was approached by British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell to give massages to Epstein.
When asked for a comment on Prince Andrew during a news conference after the hearing, Ms Giuffre said: "He knows what he's done and he can attest to that. He knows exactly what he's done and I hope he comes clean about it."
The prince has said it was "a mistake and an error" to see Epstein after his release from prison, and that he never saw or suspected criminal behaviour.
What did the other accusers say?
Courtney Wild, who has alleged Epstein sexually abused her when she was 14, told the court on Tuesday: "I feel very angry and sad. Justice has never been served in this case."
Ms Wild, who says she was recruited to be a masseuse for Epstein on his private plane dubbed "the Lolita Express", called him a "coward" who was able to "manipulate our justice system".
Jennifer Araoz, who says Epstein raped her at his New York mansion when she was 15, told the court: "He robbed me of my dreams, of my chance to pursue a career I adored.
"The fact I will never have a chance to face my predator in court eats away at me. They let this man kill himself and kill the chance for justice for so many others."
Another woman, Chauntae Davies, told the court: "I will not let him win in death."
Ms Davies said she was raped by Epstein on his private island after being hired to give him massages.
Another woman, who chose to withhold her name, fought back tears as she told the court: "We do need to know how he died. It felt like a whole new trauma. It didn't feel good to wake up that morning and find that he allegedly committed suicide."
A number of accusers have filed lawsuits against Epstein's estate. Two days before his death, he signed a will funnelling his $577m (£475m) in assets to a trust fund.
They are a bunch of inbreds descended from German royal families. Prince Phillip is an arrogant German with relatives who were in the SS, and his mother was a sad case as well, spent time in a mental home because of sexual frustration...and Charles, our future King wants to come back as his wife's tampon. ...and Poms think Trump is strange,
It is an open secret the whole family is a bunch of dickheads, including the Queen, as shown by her support for her favourite son. the most normal one would be Anne. I have met the Duke, he has a Kangaroo loose upstairs and from what I hear Andrew has similar traits. I am sure the moment the Queen passes on Charles will not be invited to be King of quite a few countries, including ours. He doesn't like NZ or Kiwis. The guy is a twat. That all aside the question is how come a bunch of Germans rule our country?The normally loyal press are going for Prince Andrew big time over here. He’ll need to completely disappear from view
Charles I don’t mind, bit of a dick but an amiable one with a sense of humour. Most informed observers reckon when it’s his turn he’ll use it to slim down the operation, I am OK with the monarchy in principle but there are far too many flunky’s and general hangers on getting a life of privilege for no reason. The principle of the monarchy does seem to keep the government of the day civilised. Mind you we’ve got a Marxist, terrorist sympathising, a****hole running for PM at the moment so who knows what will happen.
so on your logic, you wouldnt classify yourself as a Kiwi? So why do kiwis have to put up with you in their country?It is an open secret the whole family is a bunch of dickheads, including the Queen, as shown by her support for her favourite son. the most normal one would be Anne.
