Met Police Drop Prince Andrew Investigation

The Metropolitan Police have stated that they will close their investigation into Prince Andrew after reportedly talking to Virginia Giuffre and reviewing documents.

Cressida Dick, London’s police chief, announced in August that officers would review the accusations for the third time but would not initiate an investigation following Virginia Giuffre’s filing of a lawsuit in the United States accusing the prince of sexual assault, which he has consistently denied.

She had said at the time that “no one is above the law”.

“As a matter of procedure MPS (Metropolitan Police Service) officers reviewed a document released in August 2021 as part of a U.S. civil action,” the police said in a statement. 

“We also reviewed information passed to us by a media organization in June 2021. This review is complete and no further action will be taken.”

According to the Sunday Times, Met officers have since questioned Giuffre, who now resides in Australia, regarding the claims. It stated that it was unknown whether or not they obtained a formal statement from her.
