Prince Andrew could face ‘BAILIFFS coming round’
PRINCE Andrew faces bailiffs turning up at his home – the £30 million Royal Lodge to seize his assets – if loses his sex case trial, a lawyer has warned.
Already there have been claims he has sold his £17 million ski chalet in the Swiss alps to avoid having it seized should he lose the case.
And while his home, the Royal Lodge, is not owned by him – he could see officers from the court turning up at the gates.
Lawyer Arick Fudali, who has worked closely with victims of Epstein for Lisa Bloom’s firm, said Andrew faces having his assets seized if he loses.
“There is a method and procedure for seizing assets, even overseas assets, in the event there is an award of damages and the defendant tries to avoid paying,” he told The Sun Online.
“This could include seizing bank accounts, physical property, etc.
“Assuming for the sake of this question that there is an award of damages against Prince Andrew, he would be able to avoid the seizure of assets by posting a bond pending the inevitable appeal.
“Assuming the appeal goes in favour of Ms. Giuffre, Prince Andrew would either have to pay the amount owed, settle the matter for another amount, or risk his assets being seized.”
