SEVEN key witnesses could link Prince Andrew to his rape accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre – as well as Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.
The Duke of York, 61, is facing a lawsuit filed by Ms Giuffre who claims she was forced to have sex with him three times in 2001 and 2002 – in London, New York and on a private Caribbean island.
Ms Giuffre alleges she was trafficked to have sex with Andrew by multimillionaire paedophile Epstein and his twisted lover Maxwell.
British socialite Maxwell, 60, was a close pal of Andrew and the two have known each other from her university days.
She is alleged to have been the one who introduced him to Epstein – and Ms Giuffre.
Last week, she was convicted of five out of six counts of sex trafficking for vile Epstein's paedophile ring.
Andrew has always strongly denied all allegations made against him and said he was not aware of any improper behaviour by Epstein and Maxwell.
But Ms Giuffre's lawyer David Boies has urged Andrew to “take responsibility” for his alleged actions – and confirmed several witnesses are willing to say the Duke and Ms Giuffre had met.
Here are seven witnesses could be called to testify against the Duke of York and link him to Ms Giuffre, Epstein and Maxwell.
