Following Epstein's death in August of this year, the MPS said it reexamined its case, only to determine that because the alleged crimes "related to events outside of the UK and an allegation of trafficking to central London in March 2001" they were again not the appropriate authority to open an investigation.
The March 2001 incident referenced by the statement is believed to be related to complaints made by Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who alleged in a 2015 civil suit against Epstein that she was paid to sexually service Epstein and his guests — including Alan Dershowitz and Prince Andrew. Dershowitz denies the claims.
