Jeffrey Epstein: Prince Andrew's alleged efforts to protect paedophile pal could be revealed in court
Jan 15, 2015 By Christopher Bucktin
A judge has ordered the disgraced tycoon’s lawyers to come up with “extraordinary circumstances” as to why so-called 'sex papers' should be kept secret
Prince Andrew’s alleged bid to help paedophile pal Jeffrey Epstein get a reduced jail sentence could be revealed in court for the first time.
A judge has ordered the disgraced tycoon’s lawyers to come up with “extraordinary circumstances” as to why papers believed to contain the names of key figures, including the Duke of York, who lobbied on his behalf in a plea bargaining case should be kept secret.
If they fail, it means Andrew’s alleged efforts to protect 61-year-old Epstein could be revealed in full, sparking major embarrassment at Buckingham Palace.
Epstein was jailed in 2008 for 18 months for soliciting a minor for prostitution. He could have been jailed for up to 20 years but cut a plea deal with prosecutors that gave him a much shorter term.
But two alleged victims, named as Jane Doe #1 and Jane Doe #2 in court papers, have launched a lawsuit in Florida arguing they should have been made aware of the deal, which granted the pervert a protective order preventing any details of the arrangement being made public....
Prince Andrew allegations: Scotland Yard asked to probe claims teenage 'sex slave' was trafficked to UK

Peter Saunders of the National Association for People Abused in Childhood has passed Virginia Roberts' allegations to ex-Operation Yewtree head Peter Spindler
Campaigners against child abuse have asked Scotland Yard to investigate claims a 17-year-old 'sex slave' was trafficked to London to romp with Prince Andrew.
Peter Saunders of the National Association for People Abused in Childhood has passed the allegations by US masseuse Virginia Roberts to ex-Operation Yewtree head Commander Peter Spindler.
Mr Saunders said: “If crimes have been committed here, they should be investigated.”
Court documents filed in Florida last month claim Andrew’s close friend, convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, arranged for Virginia to have sex with the prince after she was “internationally trafficked” into the UK.
If police decide to investigate, it could lead to Andrew being quizzed as a witness....
Buckingham Palace emphatically denies Andrew, 54, had any sexual contact with Miss Roberts, now 30.
She claims she also had sex with the prince at Epstein’s mansion in New York and on his private Caribbean island, where the age of consent is 18.
Ian Watkins’ ex-lover found not guilty over child abuse images
Joanne Mjadzelics cleared of possessing indecent images after arguing she was trying to bring Lostprophets singer to justice
A woman who repeatedly warned police about the paedophile activities of the disgraced rock star Ian Watkins, but was herself prosecuted after trying to entrap him, claimed children could have been saved from abuse if she had been believed.
Joanne Mjadzelics, 39, was cleared by a jury on Wednesday of sharing explicit and shocking images of children with the former Lostprophets singer after explaining that she had played along with Watkins to prove that he was a dangerous serial abuser.
During her trial at Cardiff crown court she said she first went to police four years before Watkins was finally arrested for a string of offences against children and attempting to rape a baby but was not believed and instead found herself the victim of what she called a “vicious” prosecution....
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is examining how South Wales police and two other forces investigated Watkins, who is serving 35 years for his crimes, amid concerns that he might have got away with his offending for years because he was famous, rich and powerful....
