Andrew Smith comments in Newsweek on Prince Andrew MLA

Partner Andrew Smith has been quoted in Newsweek on the US Department of Justice issuing a Mutual Legal Assistance (MLA) request to the UK Home Office to force Prince Andrew to testify about Jeffrey Epstein.

“[Prince Andrew] would be entitled to refuse to answer the questions only if he could validly assert privilege against self-incrimination. He would be in contempt of court for refusing in circumstances where he wasn’t validly asserting privilege against self-incrimination.”
