Author Kirby Sommers starts a petition suggesting “nobody should be above the law” in the context of the Prince Andrew v Virginia Giuffre civil case
As we’ve said before, Kirby Sommers – the author of Ghislaine Maxwell: An Unauthorized Biography – is a crusading force and now, this weekend, she’s started a Change.org petition regarding the civil case between Virginia Giuffre and Prince Andrew.
Focusing her efforts this time on the suggestion that “nobody should be above the law,” not even the son of the Queen, Sommers quite rightly asks the judge in the case, Lewis Kaplan, to allow the course of justice to run rather than being dismissed.
It comes just as the Duke of York claimed Giuffre’s lawsuit “baseless” and as having caused him to become “the latest collateral damage of the Epstein scandal,” but ignores several key facts that the royal has to date avoided explaining. Amongst matters he has thus far failed to deal with are:
- The photograph taken at the home of Ghislaine Maxwell featuring Virginia Giuffre – then known as Virginia Roberts – with Prince Andrew on 10th March 2001 has never been proven to be anything but genuine. Even, the alleged mucky madam’s brother, Ian, has described the setting of the image as “genuine.”
- During Prince Andrew’s disastrous BBC interview with Emily Maitlis, he denied having even having met Roberts in spite of the fact that said photograph clearly showed to the contrary.
- In addition, the duke’s claim that he did not go to Tramp nightclub that night and danced with the then Miss Roberts has been called into question by an independent witness, Shukri Walker.
- Going further, if the non-sweating, Pizza Express loving royal would like to see this legal matter properly cleared up to the satisfaction of his alleged victim, himself and the general public also, he should face upto it rather than behaving like a guffawing, petulant child.
Today, we urge readers of The Steeple Times to sign the Change.org petition and we also suggest it is time for the Duke of York to stop “victim shaming,” man-up and finally head to America.
