Five women who credit Jeffrey Epstein of abusing them contend Prince Andrew witnessed how people were given massages during a sex offender’s homes.

The counsel for a women has told BBC Panorama he skeleton to offer subpoenas to force a Duke of York to attest as a declare in all 5 cases.

He says a king could have critical information about sex trafficking.

The king says he did not declare or consider any questionable poise during visits to Mr Epstein’s homes.

The counsel for victims of Epstein, David Boies said: “One of a things that we have attempted is to speak Prince Andrew and to try to get what his reason is. He was a revisit visitor. They ought to contention to an interview. They ought to speak about it.”

The subpoenas – justice summonses to give testimony – have been prepared for all 5 cases and would have to be sealed off by a decider once a king was on US soil.

He would afterwards be means to plea a summons in justice if he did not wish to give evidence.

Panorama also unclosed new information about a barbarous print of Prince Andrew with his arm around 17-year-old Virginia Giuffre – afterwards called Virginia Roberts.

She pronounced that she, a prince, Epstein and his afterwards girlfriend, a socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, went to Tramp night bar in London.

Ms Giuffre pronounced that in a automobile on a approach behind “Ghislaine tells me that we have to do for Andrew what we do for Jeffrey and that usually done me sick”.

When they got behind to a house, she pronounced she asked Epstein to take a design of her to uncover her family. She afterwards carried out a instructions to perform a prince.

“Well there was a bath and it started there and afterwards it led into a bedroom and it didn’t final really long, a whole whole procedure.

“It was disgusting. He wasn’t meant or anything, though he got adult and he pronounced interjection and walked out.”

Virginia Giuffre describes how she asked Jeffrey Epstein to take this design of her with Andrew

The print of them together was initial published in 2011 after a Mail on Sunday tracked down Ms Giuffre and paid her $160,000 for her story.

This year residence sources started suggesting a print was a feign – though Prince Andrew stopped usually brief of that in his speak with BBC Newsnight.

He said: “You can’t infer either or not that sketch is calculated since it’s a sketch of a sketch of a photograph.”

“It’s really formidable to be means to infer it though we don’t remember that sketch being taken. That’s me though either that’s my hand… we have simply no correlation of a sketch ever being taken.”

The king also pronounced he suspicion he had never been upstairs in his crony Ghislaine Maxwell’s house, where a print appears to have been taken.

But Ms Giuffre told Panorama a print is genuine and she gave a strange to a FBI in 2011.

“I consider a universe is removing ill of these absurd excuses. It’s a genuine photo,” she said. “I’ve given it to a FBI for their review and it’s an authentic photo. There’s a date on a behind of it from when it was printed.”

She pronounced a date on a behind of a print is 13 Mar 2001 – dual days after she left London on her outing with Epstein and Ms Maxwell.

Panorama also spoke to a freelance photographer Michael Thomas who initial copied a design in 2011.

He is assured a design is genuine since he found it in a center of a gold of photos that Ms Giuffre handed him from her travels with Epstein and Ms Maxwell.

He said: “It was zero sophisticated. These were 5×7 photos that looked like they had come from Boots a chemist. They were customary teenage snaps.”

The programme also found justification that supports Ms Giuffre’s explain that she gave a strange to a FBI.

A redacted justice request shows she gave 20 photos to a FBI in 2011 and they were scanned front and back.

But there are usually 19 photos shown in a open version.

Panorama has been told a Prince Andrew print was private from a open request to strengthen his privacy.

The news that 5 women contend that Prince Andrew witnessed Epstein and his guest receiving massages and have prepared subpoenas should he transport to a US is bad for a king on several fronts.

He says he had during no time seen, witnessed or suspected questionable poise during Epstein residences. This flatly contradicts that.

The existence of subpoenas – court-backed final for sworn testimony – creates any revisit to a US by a king vanishingly unlikely. It’s flattering extraordinary: a Queen’s second son is now effectively incompetent to transport to a US, unless he fancies being forced to give a deposition.

The subpoenas can be challenged, though it would be a outrageous risk removing inextricable in a US authorised system.

This news, and a rest of a programme, with a absolute speak by Virginia Giuffre, puts Prince Andrew, his attribute with Jeffrey Epstein, and his denials, behind into a spotlight. The debate refuses to go away; instead, it grows.

Another Epstein victim, Sarah Ransome told Panorama Ghislaine Maxwell, one of Prince Andrew’s oldest friends, worked palm in palm with Epstein.

“Ghislaine tranquil a girls. She was like a Madam,” she said.

“She was like a nuts and bolts of a sex trafficking operation and she would always revisit Jeffrey on a island to make certain a girls were doing what they were ostensible to be doing.

“She knew what Jeffrey liked. She worked and helped say Jeffrey’s customary by intimidation, by intimidating a girls, so this was really most a corner effort.”

Ms Maxwell could not be reached for criticism though has formerly denied any impasse in or believe of Epstein’s abuse.

Allegations of sex abuse opposite her were initial done open in justice papers in 2009, though Prince Andrew has confirmed a friendship.

Prince Andrew and Ghislaine Maxwell attended Ascot in Jun 2000.

Panorama unclosed an email from 2015 that suggests he even asked for Ms Maxwell’s assistance in traffic with Virginia Giuffre’s claims. She was famous during a time by her lass name Virginia Roberts.

In a email a king told Ms Maxwell: “Let me know when we can talk. Got some specific questions to ask we about Virginia Roberts.”

She replied: “Have some info. Call me when we have a moment.”

Prince Andrew declined to answer Panorama’s minute questions though he pronounced in a matter that he deplores a exploitation of any tellurian being and would not condone, attend in or inspire any such behaviour.

“The Duke of York unquestionably regrets his ill-judged organisation with Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein’s self-murder left many unanswered questions, quite for his victims. The duke deeply sympathises with those influenced who wish some form of closure.

“It is his wish that, in time, they will be means to reconstruct their lives. The duke is peaceful to assistance any suitable law coercion group with their investigations, if required.”
