    Is it just me......?
    America complaining that Prince Andrew 'won't cooperate' yet not extraditing a lady who killed Harry Dunn.
    One rule for us eh?

    Perhaps we could do a swap, it would seem to be a win for both sides.

    It will be instructive to see the final outcome of both cases.

    I confidently predict the score will be USA 2 : UK 0

    (Patently an unfair and terrible result for the family of the lad who was killed.)

    I’m sure Andrew will do the right thing and help with the ongoing enquiries eventually. He’s much too honourable a man. He will want to lead by example & assist in any way he can.

    Thought nobody.

    Randy Andy's reply; "Of course I'll do the honourable thing; no sweat."

    Can a member of the Royal (sic) Family be extradited?

    (Is he still such?)

    Perhaps the right question needs to be asked: Had it not been Prince Andy, would the UK have supported the USA more here ?

    Seems he is genuinely willing to help the FBI with any investigation...

    "The Duke is more than happy to talk to the FBI but he hasn't been approached by them yet. "He is angry about the way this is being portrayed and bewildered as to why this was said in New York. It seems certain people are jumping the gun.”

    ...and he’s preparing for the interview process a bit better this time around.

    The source insisted that the Duke remained willing to assist the investigation and as such, had been holding weekly meetings with his lawyers at Royal Lodge, his Windsor home, and at Buckingham Palace in preparation.

    No one can be extradited unless they have committed a crime for which they are being investigated by the other country.

    Lawyers for some of the alleged victims of Epstein yesterday called on the duke to arrange an interview with the FBI immediately.

    Gloria Allred, who represents five women, said: 'What else does Prince Andrew need? Does he need a gold-plated invitation delivered on a silver platter?

    Imagine the indignation.

    “Gold plated!... Do you know who I am!” :D

    A subpoena could be issued but that presents difficulties outside the US. But Prince Andrew isnt formerly accused of a crime unlike the Dunn case. US investigators appear more interested in his testimony as a witness. He may not even realise that what he knows as a witness may be useful until he is asked the questions.
