Prince Andrew verbally attacked by accuser’s father
The father of the then-17-year-old American girl who claims to have had sex with Britain’s Prince Andrew thinks he should face jail time if the allegations are true.
Virginia Roberts has claimed in US court papers that she was forced to sleep with Prince Andrew on three occasions between 1999 and 2002, in London, New York and on a private Caribbean island owned by her former employer Jeffrey Epstein.
Sky Roberts, Virginia’s 58-year-old father, has insisted the prince should face prosecution if the claims that he had sex with the girl in Florida – when she was 17, which is one year below the age of consent in the state – are proven to be true.
Sky is quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: “I brought up my children and that includes Virginia to always tell the truth … Why would she lie?
“Virginia told me a few years back that she met Prince Andrew when she went to London and she also said while they were there she met the queen … [Virginia] had been flown to London by Jeffrey. He would fly her all over the world and she would give him massages on his private jet.”
In the court papers, Virginia alleges Epstein paid her money to give erotic massages to the tycoon and his friends, while she also claims Ghislaine Maxwell, the daughter of former media mogul Robert Maxwell, acted as Epstein’s madame.
Prince Andrew has vehemently denied all of the allegations made against him.
