Virginia Giuffre, the accuser of Prince Andrew, is looking for two witnesses in the United Kingdom.
In his civil sex case, the Duke of York’s accuser is looking for testimony from his former assistant and a woman who claims to have seen the royal at Tramp nightclub.
Virginia Giuffre has asked the UK courts for assistance in obtaining testimony after her lawsuit against Andrew took a major step forward this week when a judge denied the duke’s lawyers’ motion to dismiss the case and ruled that the case could proceed to trial.
Ms Giuffre has asked Andrew’s former equerry, Robert Olney, and a woman named Shukri Walker to testify.
Mr Olney’s name appears in Jeffrey Epstein’s phone book under ‘Duke of York,’ according to documents submitted by Ms Giuffre’s legal team.
Mr Olney is likely to have relevant information about Andrew’s travel to and from Epstein’s properties during the relevant period, according to them.
Ms Walker has stated publicly in the press that she was a witness to Andrew’s presence at Tramp during the relevant time period with a young woman who could have been Ms Giuffre, according to the documents.
‘Ms Walker has thus stated herself as a potential witness, and would thus be relevant to this dispute because plaintiff contends that defendant abused her in London after they visited Tramp together, while defendant denies being at Tramp on the night in question or having ever met Plaintiff,’ according to the documents.
Andrew’s civil sex case resurfaced on Friday, with calls for him to pay for his own security or lose his dukedom.
The Queen stripped Andrew of his remaining patronages and honorary military roles as the monarchy distanced itself from the duke ahead of potentially damaging developments in his lawsuit, prompting increased criticism of Andrew.
During a visit to the north east of Scotland to meet people who helped in the clean-up operation after Storm Arwen, the Prince of Wales was asked about the sex scandal that has engulfed his brother and did not respond.
Andrew lost his military roles, patronages, and his HRH style after discussions with the Queen and Duke of Cambridge.
When a Sky broadcaster asked: ‘Your Royal Highness, can I ask you your view on your brother’s position, Prince Andrew? How do you view it?’ when he arrived at Haddo House and Country Park, the heir to the throne did not respond.
Ms Virginia, in response to a court ruling this week allowing her civil sex case against Andrew to go to trial, tweeted…
