London, Mar 28 (ANI): More pressure is being piled on Prince Andrew over his work as Britain's special trade representative after it was alleged that his daughter Princess Beatrice was given a diamond necklace by a Libyan businessman on her 21st birthday.


The businessman, Tarek Kaituni, who is now a US citizen, has convictions for possession of drugs - for which he served a prison sentence in 1998 - and attempting to smuggle a sub-machine gun into France.


He was a guest at Beatrice's birthday party at a private villa near Marbella, during which he was photographed with the prince sitting at the same table.


According to the Sunday Times Kaituni's former girlfriend Manel Hamrouni, who was pictured sitting next to the prince, claimed that the prince had lobbied for the businessman to be given a consultancy with the British water treatment company Biwater and paid commission for helping to secure business in Libya.


The prince's spokesman denied that he had ever acted on Kaituni's behalf, received personal gifts or solicited payments for him. He described Andrew and Kaituni as "certainly associates".


He was asked is the princess had been given a diamond necklace.


"We never comment on any gifts given to members of the royal family," the Guardian quoted him as saying. (ANI)
