Former JEFFREY Epstein butler says Prince Andrew “may have something to hide” because he claims to have used it to set up the royal’s “daily massage” tables.
Juan Alessi, 70, said the Duke of York should speak with American investigators about the alleged victims of the disgraced financier, including Virginia Roberts.
Ms. Roberts, 36, alleged that Epstein used her as a sex slave and forced her to sleep with the Duke of York three times in 2001 at the age of 17.
Prince Andrew, 60, has always firmly denied the allegations made against him.
Juan thinks that Prince Andrew should speak to investigators while The Mirror says, “Maybe he has something to hide. “
Juan started working for the dishonored financier in 1991 at his 7 million pound home in Palm Beach, Florida.
When his boss was arrested for child abuse in 2006, Juan was questioned at length by investigators.
In 2009, Juan was sworn in in a civil case brought by “Jane Doe 2” against Epstein.
In 2016, he was sworn in in Mrs. Robert’s civil case for libel against Ghislaine Maxwell that Prince Andrew was among the regular guests.
Juan also says:
- Maxwell forced Juan to drive her to recruit girls – including once at Mar-A-Lago where Mrs. Roberts was found
- One of the butler’s tasks was to clean sex toys
- FBI needs to talk to Maxwell because “she knows more than anyone”
- Juan was responsible for paying the girls
- Mr. Roberts and Juan had a tearful meeting recently
- Epstein was “a danger” and a “coward”
Juan claims that he set up massage tables for the prince every day during his extended stay at home at the waterside of the paedo.
During the November 2005 criminal investigation into Epstein, Juan made an affidavit to the Palm Beach police saying that Andrew “had spent weeks with us” and was sleeping in “the blue room” – the master bedroom. guests.
Juan added that the royal had “daily massages” saying: “We have set up the tables. “
He remembers seeing naked girls by the pool during Andrew’s stay, but insisted that they put on clothes before entering the house.
Juan said he had never seen Andrew participate in any of the alleged sexual activities.
The former butler met the Duke twice and described Andrew as a “gentleman”.
He said, “He was a nice guy. I never see him with girls. I never see him with Virginia. I’ve never seen him naked or having a massage.
“If he had a massage, as I said in my testimony, everything was upstairs behind closed doors. I’ve never seen him kiss or pat anyone. “
I hope Prince Andrew, as a father himself, also does the right thing.
Juan signed a confidentiality agreement when he left Epstein’s job, but says he died when his former boss did.
He told how Maxwell would have pushed him to go to Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago in search of girls.
Juan also said that he recently had an emotional meeting with Ms. Rorberts where he wanted her to tell her about the alleged abuse at the time.
He spoke of his 11 years with Epstein and Maxwell saying that it was “relief” when his former boss died because he was “in danger”.
Juan added, “I hope Prince Andrew, as a father himself, will do the right thing too. “
A friend of Prince Andrew told the Mirror, “None of us who know the Duke will be surprised by what the butler said about him: a polite, decent and generous man. “
Earlier this month, Prince Andrew is said to have denied three requests for an interview with Epstein.
In November Andrew said he was ready to help US officials investigate Epstein and his associates.
During the BBC interview on the car accident which led him to withdraw from public life, he said: “Of course I am ready to help any appropriate law enforcement agency in his investigations, if necessary. “
