The Duke of York’s prosecutor in his civil sex suit is asking for testimonies from his former assistant and a woman who claims to have seen the royal family at the Tramp nightclub.
Virginia Giuffre is asking British courts to help get testimony after her trial against Andrew took a big step forward this week when a judge rejected a motion by the Duke’s lawyers to dismiss the case, ruling that it was the judge can come.
Mrs. Giuffre asks for a testimony from Andrew’s former equerry Robert Olney and a woman named Shukri Walker.
Documents filed by Ms. Giuffre’s legal team say Mr. Olney’s name appears in Jeffrey Epstein’s phone book under “Duke of York.”
They say this means it is likely that Mr Olney has relevant information about Andrew’s travels to and from Epstein’s properties during the relevant time period.
