Epstein case: Prince Andrew will have to prove that he does not sweat

Recently convicted of child sex trafficking, Ghislaine Maxwell is infamous for providing young prey to her companion, billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who committed suicide in prison in August 2019 before being put on trial. In 1999, it was she who organized the presentations between the American pedophile and Prince Andrew, second son of Queen Elizabeth II.

In 2001, at Ghislaine Maxwell’s, Epstein introduced to the prince the American Virginia Roberts, then aged 17, who belonged to his network of minors. The one who is now called Virginia Giuffre accuses the prince of having sexually assaulted her during this period. What the person strongly denies.

A complaint was filed by Virginia Giuffre on August 9, 2021. Surprisingly enough, one of the keys to the court case may well be … Prince Andrew’s sweating. Or rather its absence of perspiration. Because if the complainant evokes in her testimony the sweat of her alleged assailant, he now defends himself by affirming that he is affected by a medical condition because of which it is impossible for him to sweat.

Anhydrosis or hypohydrosis

The BBC is rebroadcasting a video from 2019 in which the prince evokes this particularity. Virginie Giuffre’s lawyers will obviously not be satisfied with this: they have called on the member of the British royal family to provide “All documents relating to [sa] supposed anhidrosis, hypohidrosis, or [son] inability to sweat “. Anhidrosis refers to the absence of sweating, while hypohidrosis is insufficient sweat.

For the moment, the prince apparently refuses to provide such proof. He made it known through his lawyers that this “Concerns private and confidential information”. They ended up adding that he did not have any such medical document, which is a very different justification.
