(CNN) -

A 2009 settlement agreement between sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and Virginia Roberts Giuffre, the woman who accused him of sexual abuse and trafficking for Prince Andrew, among others, was revealed Monday.


The document shows that Epstein paid Giuffre $ 500,000 to drop the case without admitting responsibility or fault.

The document was unveiled as part of Giuffre's separate lawsuit against Prince Andrew.

In the lawsuit, Giuffre maintains that Epstein trafficked her and forced her to have sex with his friends - including the prince - and that Andrés was aware that he was a minor (17 years old) in the United States.

Prince Andrew has denied the allegations.

Andres' attorneys argued in their motion to dismiss Giuffre's case against him in October that her lawsuit violates the terms of the settlement agreement with Epstein, where she accepted a "blanket waiver" of the claims against Epstein and others.

In the copy unveiled this Monday, Andrés' name does not appear explicitly as part of the agreement.

The agreement stipulates that it "exonerates, frees and forever exonerates" the parties and "any other person or entity that could have been included as a possible defendant," but does not explicitly name any other in the document seen by CNN.
