'Prince Andrew has ignored federal prosecutors' interview requests despite publicly offering to cooperate with their ongoing investigation into pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and any potential co-conspirators.
Speaking to reporters outside Epstein's Manhattan mansion on Monday, US Attorney for the Southern District of New York Geoffrey Berman said that prosecutors have contacted Prince Andrew's attorneys but have not received a response.
'To date, Prince Andrew has provided zero cooperation,' Berman said - a revelation likely to raise further questions about the disgraced Duke's association with Epstein.
Prince Andrew said in November that he was willing to assist US officials with investigations into Epstein and his associates.
'Of course, I am willing to help any appropriate law enforcement agency with their investigations, if required,' he said in a statement soon after being grilled about his ties to the disgraced financier in a TV interview.
Berman made his latest remarks about the Epstein case during a joint appearance with members of Safe Horizon, a nonprofit victim services agency, to discuss a new New York law that makes it easier for people to sue over childhood sexual abuse.
The attorney wouldn't discuss the investigation in detail, but did confirm that prosecutors are looking at possible 'conspirators' who worked with Epstein.
'Jeffrey Epstein couldn't have done what he did without the assistance of others, and I can assure you that the investigation is moving forward,' Berman said.
The attorney declined to comment when asked if Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein's accused madam, is cooperating with investigators.'
