Brad Edwards, a lawyer representing a number of Epstein accusers, added, "With respect to Prince Andrew or anyone else who made statements, gratuitous statements, if anyone wants to come over here and talk with us, and answer real questions that the victims have, and that we have on their behalf, we welcome that invitation".

The veracity of the photograph has been questioned.

The FBI years ago seized the infamous photo showing Prince Andrew smiling alongside Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre, according to a new report. "I will never be silenced until these people are brought to justice", she vowed.

Prince Andrew, 59, has "emphatically" denied any relationship with Ms Roberts Giuffre "in any form" and that he does not recall the 2001 picture being taken. Virginia Giuffre said she was a 15-year-old working at US President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago club when she was recruited to perform sex acts on Epstein.

Courtney Wild, who said Epstein began abusing her when she was 14, called him a coward for killing himself before trial.

Miss de Georgiou joined 22 different ladies to deal with the courtroom on Tuesday in an emotional, passionate and at occasions livid retelling of their tales, because the case in opposition to the late financier was formally closed. All of the men have denied the allegations and claimed she's making them up.

Prince Andrew released a statement on Saturday, in which he said he "sympathizes" with Epstein's victims. "During the time I knew him, I saw him infrequently and probably no more than only once or twice a year", reads the statement.

He added: "At no stage during the limited time I spent with him did I see, hear, witness, or suspect any behaviour of the sort that subsequently led to his arrest and conviction".

The dismissal was expected, as prosecutors had filed a motion to dismiss the federal sex trafficking charges after the multimillionaire's death on August 10, which the medical examiner deemed a suicide.
