Prince Andrew ‘in torment’ as name ‘set to appear’ in unsealed Jeffrey Epstein docs alongside paedo’s rich & famous pals

PRINCE ANDREW is allegedly “totally tormented” as his name is “set to appear” in an unsealed document related to convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, it has been claimed.

Virginia Roberts Giuffre, 40, has fought to release a fresh dossier of information on Epstein – and name 177 of his high-profile associates, victims, friends, recruiters and more.

When a batch of court records is published, the Duke of York’s name could emerge alongside those of scores of Epstein’s rich and famous acquaintances, The Mail on Sunday claims.

Some of these friendships have not been publicly identified.

As the Epstein scandal is set to reignite in the New Year, sources claiming to be close to the disgraced royal said Prince Andrew has allegedly plunged into despair ahead of Christmas.

“Andrew’s name is in there,” one source allegedly told The Mail on Sunday.

“He is beside himself with this latest development and everyone close to him is concerned for his mental wellbeing.

“He is at a loss, totally tormented.

“He is facing his second Christmas without his mother and now the New Year is going to start with his name being dragged through the mud all over again.”

The Duke of York is expected to spend the holiday in Sandringham with his brother King Charles and other Royals.

It comes after Judge Loretta Preska “unsealed in full” the court documents – which form part of a 2015 civil defamation suit brought by Virginia against Epstein’s former lover and sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell.

Unless anyone appeals, the documents are set to be made public any time from January 1 onwards.

They are expected to reveal more about Epstein’s trafficking crimes – and just how far his network reached.

The dossier includes dozens of unnamed and understood to be high profile men and women who could be unmasked.

It’s understood documents relating to some of Epstein’s inner circle – who were identified in his black book of contacts – will be released.

At least seven of the “John Does” in the court ruling are described as “public figures” or as having some form of relationship with Epstein.

It also states that many of those currently unnamed in the case have spoken to the press about Epstein – and therefore their identities can now be revealed.

These include some of Epstein’s victims, those who have made public allegations against him, or testified publicly at Maxwell’s criminal trial.

They will include documents about one of Prince Andrew’s accusers – Johanna Sjoberg – who alleges that he groped her at Epstein’s New York mansion.

Others who are expected to be identified include a “member of law enforcement”, a “journalist who investigated Epstein,” and a “medical provider”.

It is not suggested they are accused of any wrongdoing.

The new files set to be released in January are likely to involve emails, legal documents, depositions and more.

Documents relating to several people who “played a role in Epstein’s sex trafficking” will be unsealed, the court ruling says.

Judge Preska gave two weeks to those set to be named for them to object.

Responding to the ruling, Virginia said: “There’s going to be a lot of nervous ppl over Christmas and New Years, 170 to be exact, who’s on the naughty list?”

Virginia and Maxwell’s defamation case was settled with confidential terms, but hundreds of pages of documents have been released over the last few years.

In other unsealed documents, Virginia described seeing Clinton on Epstein’s island and described Trump as a “friend” of Epstein.

Clinton and Trump are both known to have been pals with Epstein – but neither former president has even been accused of wrongdoing over their association with Epstein and Maxwell.

In other documents, it is mentioned she was trafficked to a “Prime Minister”, “foreign presidents” and “many other powerful men”.

Its unclear which country the alleged mystery PM is from.

Virginia also claimed she was trafficked to Epstein’s lawyer Alan Dershowitz, model scout Jean Luc Brunel, billionaire Glenn Dublin, former US Senator George Mitchell, and New Mexico governor Bill Richardson.

All the claims are strongly denied by the men – but’s it’s understood they could be named in the new batch of court documents.

Numerous high profile names were dropped during Maxwell’s trial for sex trafficking – including Trump, Clinton and Andrew.

Others named included Kevin Spacey, Chris Tucker, violinist Itzhak Perlman, and US Senators John Glenn and George Mitchell.

None have ever been accused of wrongdoing and it shows the web of the rich and powerful insidiously assembled by Epstein and Maxwell.

Epstein, 66, was found dead in a New York jail in 2019 while awaiting trial for sex trafficking.

Virginia alleged that she was recruited by Maxwell, the daughter of disgraced tycoon Robert Maxwell, as a teenage “sex slave” for Epstein.

She also claims she was introduced to Prince Andrew by Epstein, and that the royal had sex with her when she was 17 – an allegation the Duke has strongly denied.

She launched a legal battle against Andrew in 2021, accusing him of sexually abusing her at Epstein’s mansion.

When Maxwell branded Virginia a liar over claims of sexual abuse, Virginia filed a defamation lawsuit in 2015.
