Prince Andrew: Virginia Giuffre praises court ruling as she vows to ‘expose the truth’

Virginia Giuffre, 38, took to social media to claim she would “expose the truth” in a civil case brought against Prince Andrew, 61.

Ms Giuffre has alleged the Duke of York sexually abused her when she was 17.

Prince Andrew has vehemently denied the accusations.

Writing to her 96,000 Twitter followers, Ms Giuffre said: “I’m pleased with Judge Kaplan’s ruling yesterday that allows my case against Prince Andrew to go forward.

“I’m glad I will have the chance to continue to expose the truth and I am deeply grateful to my extraordinary legal team.

“Their determination helps me seek justice from those who hurt me and so many others.

“My goal has always been to show that the rich and powerful are not above the law & must be held accountable.”

She added: “I do not walk this path alone, but alongside countless other survivors of sexual abuse & trafficking.”
