New allegations that an esteemed member of the British royal family, Prince Andrew, had a "sex slave' in the form of an underage girl were discredited further today by a Harvard law professor.
While Buckingham Palace already came out in complete denial of the allegations, saying, "This relates to long-standing and ongoing civil proceedings in the United States, to which the Duke of York is not a party.As such we would not comment on the detail. However, for the avoidance of doubt, any suggestion of impropriety with under age minors is categorically untrue."
A BBC report from today, which discredits the alleged "sex slave's" version of events, quoted well-known Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz, who told the BBC's Radio 4's Today program that the woman is a "liar" and not to be believed.
"My only feeling is if she's lied about me - which I know to an absolute certainty she has - she should not be believed about anyone else," adding that the woman, "lied about other public figures including a former prime minister and others who she claims to have participated in sexual activities with. So I think it must be presumed all her allegations against Prince Andrew were false as well," he told the program.
The allegations made by the woman claim that Prince Andrew used her for sex, while she was still a minor, on three occasions, between 1999 and 2002.
Apparently, the woman (the plaintiff) who was kept as a "sex slave" by Wall Street billionaire, Jeffrey Epstein, named "Jane Doe #3," claims she was "forced to have sexual relations" with the Duke of York in London, New York, and the Caribbean, as per an AFP report from today.
Jeffrey Epstein, who is known to be a good friend of Prince Andrew, was convicted in 2008 of soliciting an underage girl for prostitution and served a prison term.
But, the paperwork submitted to the court in the case claims that "Epstein instructed Jane Doe #3 that she was to give the Prince whatever he demanded and required Jane Doe #3 to report back to him on the details of the sexual abuse."
It remains to be seen what defense the royal family, and specifically Prince Andrew, will put forward when it comes to the details of the "sex slave allegations," allegations that the Duke of York will, in any case, have to answer to, in one way or another.
