Prince Andrew’s claims that he has ‘an inability to sweat’ cannot be substantiated by his lawyers, who admitted that he had no documents to support this claim.
there are also no witnesses to confirm he was at Pizza Express the night he is accused of having sex with Virginia Giuffre, he revealed.
Andrew insisted he didn’t remember meeting Giuffre, despite being pictured together at the London home of Ghislaine Maxwell – the British socialite convicted on multiple counts of child sex trafficking for her billionaire pedophile boyfriend Jeffrey Epstein – in March 2001.
She said she was introduced to the Duke by Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell and accompanied him to Tramp nightclub.
Ms Giuffre, who was 17 at the time, claimed that when they danced together in the London nightclub, the Duke of York “sweated profusely”.
He then told Emily Maitlis in the now infamous Newsnight 2019 interview that after being hit during the Falklands War, he developed an illness that prevented him from sweating.
Ms Giuffre’s attorneys want court to order her to turn over proof of her “suspected condition of anhidrosis,” but her legal team said “no documents exist in her possession, custody or control To substantiate his request.
Prince Andrew is also unable to name witnesses to substantiate his alibi that he was at Pizza Express in Woking the night he was accused of having sex with Virginia Roberts, now Giuffre, in 2001.
He said it couldn’t have happened because he spent the day with his daughter.
âI was with the kids and took Beatrice to a Pizza Express in Woking for a party at, I guess, sort of 4 or 5 in the afternoon,â he said.
When asked why he would remember a meal at Pizza Express 18 years later, he replied: âBecause going to Pizza Express in Woking is an unusual thing for me, a very unusual thing for me to do. do … I have only been to Woking several times and I remember them strangely distinctly.
Giuffre could also commit to delivering a victim impact statement to a judge for Ghislaine Maxwell’s conviction.
Ms Giuffre, who claims she slept with the prince three times when she was trafficked as a teenager, is said to be among the women whose accounts could be examined at the court hearing.
Maxwell was convicted on Wednesday of five counts of child sex trafficking for her then billionaire pedophile boyfriend, Jeffrey Epstein.
A number of accusers who did not testify at the trial of the former British socialite will now be given the opportunity to make statements.
Ms Giuffre – known before her marriage as Virginia Roberts – is said to be among them according to the newspaper, although she was not involved in the trial, either as a witness or an accuser.
Sigrid McCawley, who represents Ms Giuffre, told the Telegraph: âAt the sentencing I expect there will be a lot of testimony from many, many other women who could not be heard at the trial, who are will present and provide information on their suffering at the hands of Ghislaine Maxwell.
“I think this will be considered by the court before Judge Nathan renders his decision on how long Ghislaine’s sentence will be behind bars.”
