“On the one hand, she didn’t really mean to talk about Andrew. There were four interviews … the first two, she refused to talk about Andrew at all. I struggled, the third one, the video, she did and the fourth one, she did a lot of detail.

“So she didn’t have a plan to win [back] Andrew and the royal family from prison. Not at all,” said Barak. “On the other hand, Virginia Giuffre, who also spoke to me exclusively, has a lot of problems with the story.”

“I recognize, Martha, that victims have problems with memories. But there are problems with her story. So far the New York district attorney has not used her as one of the four accused … the problem is who do you believe? ” Barak on. “Andrew has always insisted he never met the woman. The arrangement was to please his mother. The biggest news at the moment is that he is working to reverse the arrangement.”
