High Court accepts Virginia Giuffre’s request to serve lawsuit on Prince Andrew


The High Court has agreed to intervene in Prince Andrew’s with a sex assault civil lawsuit and ensure he is served in accordance with international law.

Lawyers for the Duke of York’s accuser, Virginia Giuffre, asked the British courts to notify him about the case, which had its first hearing in New York this week.

The High Court initially rejected the request, saying the duke had not been properly served, before issuing an update following further correspondence from Ms Giuffre’s team.

It said in a statement: ‘The lawyers acting for Ms Giuffre have now provided further information to the High Court, and the High Court has accepted the request for service under the Hague Service Convention.

‘The legal process has not yet been served but the High Court will now take steps to serve under the convention unless service is arranged by agreement between the parties.’

Solicitor advocate Nick Goldstone, head of dispute resolution at international law firm Ince, said: ‘Andrew’s lawyers need to make themselves known, officially no one is “on the record” for Andrew in England with regards to these proceedings.

Was talking about this with a work colleague today. He reckons Randy Andy was picked on by the prosecution first to show all the other important people that are involved that they are NOT SAFE. That if you can go after a member of the royal family then they could easily be next. I don’t think anybody expects him to go to court (although i would try for a swap with the Sacoolas woman) it’s just a bit of sabre-rattling

and then people call them mercenary wee prozzies, or similarly offensive words to that effect.
Remember when the northern sex-trafficking rings were first being investigated, and it came out that social workers had dismissed the underage victims as teenage prostitutes?

Prostitution was, they said, a lifestyle choice. :mad:

2015 Guardian article on it -

End use of outdated term ‘child prostitution’, says MP

A series of reports on child sexual exploitation scandals in Rochdale, Rotherham, Oxford and Telford revealed that abused children were repeatedly dismissed for making “poor choices” and having “problematic lifestyles”.

“When you read report after report about the attitudes of agencies to these children, you find they did actually see [the exploitation] as a lifestyle choice, the children were considered to be child prostitutes – that suggests victims were complicit in their abuse, it protects the abusers and it absolves agencies from failing to take action,” she said.

In 2013 there was condemnation of a court’s decision to allow a paedophile to walk free after his 13-year-old victim was described as a sexual predator, and in another trial victims of abuse in Oxford were branded “naughty girls” by defence barristers.

Oh yes. I remember it well.
