Prince Andrew 'flew with sex slave' who was 'frozen with fear', court told
'I was terrified and I felt gross. I felt ashamed'
Prince Andrew allegedly "flew with sex slave" who was "frozen with fear" on Jeffrey Epstein's private plane, a courtroom was told.
Ghislaine Maxwell is currently standing trial on sex trafficking charges related to her former partner Jeffrey Epstein. On December 1, the first accuser, who was just 14 at the time, gave evidence against Maxwell where she detailed being summoned to an orgy with both Epstein and Maxwell.
"I was terrified and I felt gross. I felt ashamed," she told the court.
Giving evidence under the pseudonym 'Jane', the witness recounts meeting former President Donald Trump.
Defence attorney Laura Menninger asked: "Mr Epstein introduced you to Donald Trump, correct?"
Jane simply replies, "yes".
Jane also confirmed that Epstein took her to Mar-A-Lago, where she met Trump and remembered Prince Andrew being on the flight.
Pilot Larry Visoki, who flew Epstein's plane, known as the Lolita Express, confirmed that Trump, Prince Andrew, George Mitchell, Kevin Spacey, Chris Tucker, John Glenn, Itzhak Perlman and Bill Clinton all flew on the plane.
Jane did not accuse Trump or Prince Andrew of any misconduct but Visoki did confirm flying Virginia Roberts Giuffre who accused the Duke of York of sexual assault.
"Yes. A shorter woman with dirty blonde hair. She didn't look young. I mean, whatever you decipher is the definition of young. But she was a woman in my category,' Visoki said.
Maxwell is currently standing trial for:
- Conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts
- Enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts
- Conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity
- Transporting a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity
- Sex trafficking conspiracy
- Sex trafficking of a minor.
The socialite, who was previously referred to as a "monster in designer clothes", could face 35 years in prison if found guilty despite pleading not guilty on all charges.
