Steve Scully, 71, told the newspaper that he wants to testify in support of Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who this week filed a civil lawsuit in Manhattan federal court alleging that Andrew assaulted her in the Caribbean, London and New York when she was 17.
“Twenty years ago, Prince Andrew’s wealth, power, position, and connections enabled him to abuse a frightened, vulnerable child with no one there to protect her. It is long past the time for him to be held to account,” the lawsuit reads, according to ABC News.
Scully spent six years working for Epstein and told the Sun that he saw Andrew kissing, “bumping and grinding” with a bikini-clad Giuffre near a pool on Epstein’s private island in the Caribbean between 2001 and 2004.
“If Virginia’s lawyers call, I will definitely speak to them and I would give a deposition under oath telling them what I saw,” Scully told the Sun.
He added: “The nice thing about the truth is that it doesn’t change! There’s no question in my mind that I saw Prince Andrew and Virginia together and no question that he would remember the incident either. He should come clean.”
Andrew has previously denied any misconduct against Giuffre. In a 2019 interview with the BBC, he said he had no memory of meeting Giuffre and questioned the authenticity of a photograph that appears to show him with his arm around her.
According to the Independent, Giuffre has described an orgy involving Andrew and multiple young females on Epstein’s island, Little Saint James, which was referred to by locals as “Island of Sin,” “Orgy Island,” and “Pedophile Island.”
Scully’s employment for Epstein primarily focused on telecommunications work.
Epstein died in August 2019 while in jail shortly after he was indicted in sex trafficking charges. His death was ruled a suicide, as CrimeOnline has reported previously
