“We don’t have to actually physically serve him with a subpoena. All we have to do is follow certain recognized procedures, which we have done.”
Virginia Giuffre, a woman who has accused the UK’s Duke of York of sexual assault, says that Prince Andrew had sex with her knowing she was under the age of 18 and a “victim of sex trafficking.”
Prince Andrew has been served with sexual assault lawsuit after attempting to sheer away from it for at least five times, according to The Sun, citing the legal team of the Duke’s accuser, Virginia Giuffre.
“We don’t have to actually physically serve him with a subpoena. All we have to do is follow certain recognized procedures, which we have done,” the lawyer noted.
“[Giuffre’s lawyers] have made several public, indeed well-publicised, attempts at irregular service of these proceedings in this jurisdiction, in at least one case accompanied by a media representative,” the letter reads.
“These have included attempted personal service of our client at his home, the instruction of a private process server, and attempts to email the proceedings not only to this firm, but to barristers (who are not authorised to conduct litigation) who are known to have acted for the Duke.”
The Duke has repeatedly dismissed claims by Giuffre that they were engaged in any sort of sexual contact, saying that he had “no recollection” of ever meeting her.
