Brit spooks fear Russia may have compromising material on Prince Andrew over his paedophile pal Jeffrey Epstein.
MI6 are worried evidence from the 2005 US police investigation into the billionaire child sex offender may have been given to the Kremlin by a former Florida police officer.
John Dougan moved to Moscow and sought political asylum there in 2016 after working for the Palm Beach sheriff’s department the year it began an investigation into Epstein.
Last week Dougan said information about Epstein, 66, who killed himself in prison, could be “incredibly valuable” for any intelligence agency, adding it may provide “leverage” over “a guy like Prince Andrew”.
But when he was asked if he had assisted the Russians, he replied: “Oh God, no. I have never met anyone from the government other than immigration officials.”
He claimed to know nothing about the Prince.
The late billionaire’s “sex slave” Virginia Giuffre, formerly Roberts, claimed she was loaned out to the Prince for sex on three separate occasions when she was 17.
Andrew, 59, has denied the allegations. In July, Dougan claimed on Facebook he still possessed confidential documents no-one had seen.
The former cop is known to have had contact with senior Russian government official Pavel Borodin, who is sometimes referred to as President Vladimir Putin’s “mentor”.
Dougan quit the Palm Beach County sheriff’s office in 2009 after three years on road patrol and became a corruption “whistleblower.”
Seven years ago he began running his own websites in which he accused his former colleagues in the police of child abuse, corruption and fascism.
The FBI was about to investigate Dougan when he fled to Moscow.
On his website he said his home was later raided by “45 FBI and Palm Beach County law enforcement agents on the false claim of hacking”.
Dougan wrote: “I knew if I stayed, I would never survive until a trial, and I knew I had to escape.”
Once in Russia he claimed political asylum and billed himself as “BadVolf,” an exiled law-enforcement whistleblower.
