Some of Jeffrey Epstein's accusers and the family of the British teenager killed in a crash with a U.S. intelligence officer's wife have joined forces to call for justice in their cases.

Lisa Bloom, lawyer for six alleged Epstein victims, and Radd Seiger, spokesman for the parents of Harry Dunn, 19, asked Wednesday that Anne Sacoolas return to the U.K. — and for ex-Epstein pal Prince Andrew to face questioning by the FBI in the United States.

At a New York press conference with Seiger, Bloom said the "parallels between the two cases are eerie" and involved "everyday teenagers" who were "victimized, The Guardian reported.

Authorities have refused to extradite Sacoolas, who claimed diplomatic immunity and returned to the United States following the wrong-way vehicle crash that killed Dunn near an Air Force base in England last August.

"Today we stand with the family of Harry Dunn and they stand with us," Bloom said, per th report. "Both Mrs. Sacoolas and Prince Andrew must cooperate with law enforcement.

"I call upon my government," she continued, "to return Mrs. Sacoolas to the U.K. to face justice."

She said Andrew needed to "answer questions about Epstein and his own behavior."

"In both countries, everyone is equal in the eyes of the law."

Seiger said it was "terrible advice" for the prince and for Sacoolas if they were being advised "it's all going to go away" and they should just "wait it out."

He said he had "reached out" to Bloom after realizing "that there was a common thread running between these cases," the Guardian reported.

"It's about evasion of justice," he said. 

Last month, Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman accused the Duke of York of "zero cooperation" and not responding to requests from the FBI and prosecutors to interview him about his friendship with Epstein.
