(Newser) – "He was an abuser. He was a participant." That's what Virginia Roberts Giuffre—one of Jeffrey Epstein's accusers—says about Prince Andrew in an upcoming Dateline that includes interviews with six Epstein accusers, per MSN.com. Talking to host Savannah Guthrie, Giuffre goes into detail about alleged 2001 events involving the prince and Epstein's longtime girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell at Maxwell's townhouse in London. "Ghislaine woke me up in the morning and told me 'You're going to meet a prince today,'" says Giuffre, who was 17 at the time. "I didn't know at that point that I was going to be trafficked to that prince." The now-famous image of Andrew with his arm around Giuffre was allegedly taken the night they had sex, per the Mercury News.

"Ghislaine said he's coming back to the house and I want you do to for him what you do for Epstein," Giuffre goes on. "I couldn't believe it." She says their sexual encounter began in the bathroom and moved to the bedroom, per Fox News: "He wasn't rude or anything about it, but he said thank you—some kind of soft sentiment like that—and left. I couldn't believe that royal was involved." According to Giuffre, she and the prince had sex twice after that on Epstein's properties. Asked if she was just making accusations for the money, Giuffre explains that "there's this horrible law called [the] statute of limitations. My lawyers have told me [the way] to hold them accountable is through them calling me a liar and I'm not. It's a defamation lawsuit." The Dateline episode airs Friday at 10pm EST.
