US lawyers have said that Prince Andrew could be extradited to the US over allegations made against him.
Following an interview with the BBC’s Emily Maitlis the Duke of York is facing growing pressure to speak with the Federal Bureau Investigation (FBI) over his links with Jeffrey Epstein.
Speaking to the Time newspaper the criminal lawyer said that anyone that was connected to the disgraced financier are “vulnerable to extradition” this includes the Queen’s son.
Rothwell said, “Prince Andrew is not entitled to any form of immunity by virtue of his position as a member of the royal family.
(All this is ) “under investigation by the FBI and he is vulnerable to extradition.”
When Prince Andrew was asked by Maitlis will he provide a statement under oath to the FBI and his friendship with Epstein, he said, “If push came to shove and the legal advice was to do so, then I would be duty bound to do so.”
