French investigators want to quiz Prince Andrew after charging modelling boss with abusing girls
FRENCH investigators want to quiz Prince Andrew after yesterday charging a modelling boss with abusing girls.
Jean-Luc Brunel, 74, is alleged to have shared Jeffrey Epstein “sex slave” Virginia Roberts Giuffre with the royal.
Brunel is also accused of supplying girls for an orgy on the billionaire’s “Paedo Island” in the Caribbean.
He and Andrew strongly deny any wrongdoing.
Epstein died in jail last year.
French officials have been probing Epstein’s crimes since August.
A source said: “We have issued numerous appeals for witnesses and Prince Andrew is clearly a witness to Epstein’s conduct over many years.
“Beyond that Andrew is said to have visited Epstein’s home in Paris and had relations with the victims Brunel is accused of abusing.
“Andrew’s testament is crucial and he could of course be summoned.”
Investigators could legally apply to quiz the Duke, 60, in France but his royal status would create difficulties.
Lisa Bloom, lawyer for an alleged victim of Brunel, said yesterday: “At long last another accused Epstein enabler is being brought to justice.
"Prince Andrew — time to make good on your promise of co-operating with authorities, or you may be next.”
Brunel was held while trying to board a plane to Senegal.
He set up agency MC2 which prosecutors claim was a cover for a sex trafficking ring run by Epstein and his ex, Ghislaine Maxwell.
A source close to Andrew said last night: “He has never met Brunel. No ifs, no buts.”
