Allegations that Prince Andrew is not cooperating with the U.S. investigation into the alleged sex trafficking of minors by British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell and the late financier Jeffrey Epstein have left the British Royal “bewildered”, his legal team said Friday.
Maxwell, a longtime associate of Epstein, was arrested in New Hampshire Thursday, as Breitbart News reported.
She had lived for years with Epstein and was his frequent travel companion on trips around the world, and was taken into custody around 8:30 a.m.
An indictment made public Thursday said Maxwell “assisted, facilitated and contributed to Jeffrey Epstein’s abuse of minor girls by, among other things, helping Epstein to recruit, groom, and ultimately abuse ” girls under age 18.
