Queen Elizabeth is Shielding Prince Andrew From Prosecution Over Sex Crimes
|by Anonymous||reply 113||September 18, 2021 8:46 PM|
As a mother, I'm sure she believes Andrew's (highly questionable) assertions that he's innocent. I also wouldn't be surprised if she feels this is part of a growing push (largely from America) to try and bring down the monarchy. So, I won't get angry for a mother trying to protect her son (despite that fact he's 60 and more than old enough to deal with his own shit). That being said, I think she needs to hand him over to Charles and Andrew to deal with in a more dispassionate manner.

Andrew is believed to have made the dash north in an attempt to avoid the humiliation of being physically served papers in Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s upcoming civil lawsuit against him.
The paper says there have been “multiple attempts” to serve the papers on Andrew at his home, Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park.
Andrew is reported to have been going “stir-crazy” at the property. Although the Lodge, which was formally the late queen mother’s home, has extensive grounds that are a far from claustrophobia-inducing 98 acres, Andrew has reportedly been unwilling to go outside for fear of being pounced on by agents working for famed U.S. attorney David Boies.

This is clearly bullshit. The Queen has zero ability to unilaterally put a stop to legitimate legal maneuvers against members of her family. If there is a real threat to Andrew, it's because Boris won't (or can't) stop it. Maybe if those warmongering Tories weren't so quick to shit on Biden's withdrawal from Afghanistan, he'd be more keen to help out.

Virginia is backed up by no witnesses whatsoever. She has ONE guy who says he saw her with Andrew in a place that Andrew has never visited and at a time when it’s impossible for him to have been there.
Andrew says he doesn’t remember the photo being taken. Do you have any conception of how many people he’s posed for photos with over the years? Why are you choosing to characterise that as a “lie”?
FACT: There is precisely zero evidence that he ever slept with Andrew’s and rather a lot of evidence that she is a pathological liar and is simply trying to make money.
Evidence matters to most people. Not to people like you, of course, for whom it’s all about the narrative…evidence be damned.

Seriously? That’s your “evidence”? That some woman saw PA in a nightclub with a young blonde woman?
Doing what? Shagging?
There’s little doubt that Andrews was in London with Epstein & Maxwell and met PA. She asked to have her photo taken with him to show her mother. Maybe they all went to Tramp, who knows?
None of that adds up to a “poor trafficked girl being raped”.
And who is this “woman” who saw them? Did she know Andrews so well she could identify her from a photo a few decades later? Please. That would get laughed out of any court.
Even the journalist who broke the story came to believe that Andrews was lying, as did her own lawyer.
This whole thing has been a shameful money grab from day one.

Let me say this slowly so that even the hard of thinking like you can understand - there is no evidence whatsoever that PA had anything at all to do with Andrews. None. Zero. Zilch. Nada.
She has repeatedly lied under oath & initially invented an orgy with 8 people including Andrew that turned out to be a lie.
The journalist that broke her story came to believe she was lying. Her lawyer dropped her for lying. There are emails from Andrews asking to be reminded of what she’d previously told them so she could keep her story straight.
Now, let me ask you…what kind of moron is happy to see anyone convicted on the basis of no evidence whatsoever? It’s people like you who are responsible for innocent men rotting on death row because you are too fucking stupid to understand that a) evidence matters and b) your personal opinion of rhe accused does not.

R75 - If he was extradited, it would be for crimes committed in the US, not in the UK.

R76 What I'm saying is that they won't extradite someone to face charges for a crime that isn't also a crime in the UK; the likely sentence also has to be comparable. So even if he was charged in the US and an extradition requested, it's highly unlikely it would happen as those conditions can't be met.

[QUOTE]A lawyer for Prince Andrew, who was sued last month by a woman accusing him of sexually abusing her when she was a minor, said in a Manhattan court on Monday that the lawsuit was likely to be invalid under the terms of an earlier confidential settlement — one that the prince’s lawyers have said the woman reached with Jeffrey Epstein.
[QUOTE]The hearing, coming in the closely watched lawsuit brought by Virginia Giuffre, one of Mr. Epstein’s most prominent accusers, was the first public response from Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, and suggests that his legal team will seek to beat back any attempt to allow the suit to proceed. Prince Andrew’s lawyer also argued on Monday that his client had not been properly served with legal papers in Britain.
[QUOTE]The lawyer, Andrew B. Brettler, said Ms. Giuffre’s lawsuit was “baseless, nonviable and potentially unlawful.”
[QUOTE]“We have significant concerns about the propriety of this lawsuit,” Mr. Brettler said at a hearing in Federal District Court in Manhattan.
[QUOTE]Other lawyers for Prince Andrew indicated last week in a letter to Ms. Giuffre’s lawyers that the prince would challenge the lawsuit on the grounds that Ms. Giuffre’s lawyers had not properly served him with the complaint, a routine step giving a defendant formal notice that he has been sued.
[QUOTE]“We are not instructed to appear in the claim brought by Ms. Giuffre in the Southern District of New York and we are not instructed to accept service of that claim on behalf of the Duke,” the lawyers, with the firm Blackfords, wrote.
[QUOTE]The lawyers also wrote that Ms. Giuffre’s claim against Prince Andrew may be invalid under terms of a 2009 settlement reached in a lawsuit against Mr. Epstein in Florida.
[QUOTE]Ms. Giuffre’s lawyer, David Boies, had attached a copy of the letter from the prince’s lawyers to a court filing on Friday. In it, Mr. Boies said the lawyers’ suggestion that the earlier settlement “somehow releases Prince Andrew from the claims” made by Ms. Giuffre was “erroneous,” noting that Prince Andrew had not been a party to the earlier case.

Who knew “Randy Andy” was a child molestor? People used to think he was Gay and I’m so glad that he is not, although I have nothing but sympanthy for his victims.

He’s accused of humping a woman of legal age. Not a child. Sleazy, but not a pedophile.

[quote]the age of consent is still a hard law. Your opinion about the ages that people mentally mature doesn't matter. I'm also guessing you'd be opposed to republicans raising the voting age for the same reason.
R54. This is discussed in every new article on Andrew: he fucked a victim of sex trafficking, and it doesn't matter if she were 5 or 85. It is illegal to fuck victims of sex trafficking. This has nothing to do with age of consent.
Sex trafficking, sex trafficking, sex trafficking. Always illegal.
Got it now?

R103, sex trafficking is illegal but that still doesn't make it paedophilia.

We've all known elderly parents who will lose all objectivity when it comes to their favorite child. It is more proof, the royals are just like the rest of us.

R105. I don’t recall calling Andrew a pedophile. But it does appear he was besties with a known sex trafficker and may have fucked a victim of sex trafficking.

You might not have r111 but a popular line against Andrew is that he's a paedophile. It also remains to be seen what evidence will be presented to support the allegations of sex trafficking.

I don't think HM should have had him at Balmoral. It doesn't look good.
I know he's her son, but surely even she thinks he's a massive bell end.
