Ben Keith appeared on Sky News on 28 January 2020, to discuss the latest developments in the Epstein case, commenting on the reports that Prince Andrew was unwilling to co-operate with the US investigation. You can view the video of Ben on our LinkedIn page here.

Ben was quoted in the New York Times following his Sky News interview: 

“They can’t compel him to do any of those things,” said British lawyer Ben Keith, a specialist in extradition and law enforcement. “The next stage after that is to issue a formal Mutual Legal Assistance Request, which would go through the Foreign Office and be dealt with in the court system.”

That could lead, Keith said, to the prince giving evidence via video link to U.S. investigators.
