If we have anything to do with it, they will be.”

Spencer Kuvin, a lawyer representing several of Epstein and Maxwell’s victims, told The Mirror that Andrew should be included in the investigation, saying, “Obviously, Andrew is one of the targets they will be looking into.”
Kuvin said that the Duke of York should definitely be concerned but added that, if he did nothing wrong, then he should be willing to come forward and set the record straight – “to the FBI, not the media.” Kuvin also named a few others including another Briton.
Lawyer Lisa Bloom who also represents victims in the case agreed that the FBI should “fully investigate” Prince Andrew
