Prince Andrew’s lawyers ‘may try to use diplomatic immunity over sexual abuse claim’

The Mirror says: Prince Andrew’s legal team may try to get his rape accuser’s claim thrown out of court by claiming he had diplomatic immunity.

In 2001, when Virginia Giuffre claims Andrew raped her, he was a trade envoy.

The position comes with diplomatic immunity, which US lawyers believe could let the prince avoid a court case.

Spencer Kuvin, who represents several of paedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s victims, told the Mirror: “Ms Giuffre’s lawyers have huge barriers to overcome to get her lawsuit anywhere near a jury.

“If the Duke engages in the case at all, his legal team will undoubtedly file a motion to dismiss the complaint on numerous different grounds. For sure, they would argue diplomatic immunity. They would have a strong case.”
