The following is an excerpt from an article in Bloomberg News:
Prince Andrew offered to help the U.S. Justice Department three times this year in its investigation into Jeffrey Epstein’s sex crimes, his lawyers said Monday.
The statement from law firm Blackfords LLP follows reports that the Justice Department has filed a formal request with the U.K. for the prince to provide testimony as part of its larger probe into Epstein.
The lawyers took issue with earlier comments by the top federal prosecutor in New York, Geoffrey Berman, claiming Andrew had offered no cooperation. In fact, the prince offered to help three times since he was first approached by the U.S. on Jan. 2, according to Blackfords.
