Anna Rothwell comments on the Duke of York

Of Counsel Anna Rothwell has commented on Prince Andrew’s recent appearance on BBC’s Newsnight.

Commenting on the Duke of York’s decision to appear on the show, Anna said: “Prince Andrew is not entitled to any form of immunity by virtue of his position as a member of the Royal family. His friendship with the convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein is under investigation by the FBI and he is vulnerable to extradition.

“It is therefore very unwise for the prince to give any account to the media, especially one which so starkly exposes the closeness of his relationship with Epstein, and again betrays yet another appalling lack of judgment.”
