Princess Diana's Death in Paris - was it an accident or was she killed?

Repose en paix Henri
Tes amis ne sont dupes

"Rest in peace, Henri, your friends have not been fooled" -- words on floral tribute at the funeral of Henri Paul (English trans)

"One day I'm going to go up in a helicopter and not come back down" -- Princess Diana

The conspiracy theorists have been in overdrive. I make make no apology for adding to their output. I have a special reason for doing so - my theories pre-date the death of Princess Diana. About two years before her death a thought came into my mind that Diana would be killed. This would be no assassin's bullet as JFK or John Lennon, but an accident. I had in mind a skiing accident or a tragedy at sea. The thought must have lodged deep in my mind as it troubled me for weeks, then gradually faded away. Looking back I now see I must have had a premonition.

There can be only two reasons for her death, an accident or she was deliberately killed.

An accident can not be ruled out. Accidents happen to the best of us. Even if there was a plot to kill Diana, it could have been pre-empted by an accident.

If it was an accident, it still deserves explanation as all accidents have causes. I am not familiar with the road tunnel alongside the Seine, but I have to ask myself how did the driver lose control? Is there a sharp bend, did he hit something or skid, did the car have a mechanical fault (if so why?), was the driver drunk or in some way intoxicated? These questions can be answered by simple examination and investigation. Dodi's bodyguard is the key to many. The driver being drunk seems at odds with his reputation.

Accident or not, we may never know, but the whole affair has a distinctly uneasy and messy feel to it.

Mid-November 1997, two British Sunday tabloid newspapers published a survey that showed that a very high proportion of those surveyed felt the death of Diana was no accident and that she had been killed to silence her. The methodology used left much to be desired, but with a figure of 98% the results could not be easily dismissed and if nothing else showed the general feeling of disquiet and unease over the death of Princess Diana.

If not an accident, then part of a conspiracy, if so by whom, and for what reason?

Some of this I can answer by going back two years. My initial thoughts on this must have had a very strong impact as they haunted me for weeks and weeks, only very slowly did they fade away.

I almost contacted Diana, but what could either of us have done?

The wildest of ideas can have their basis in reality. This is how creative thought occurs and scientific advances are made. A wild thought occurs, logic is used to build a bridge back to reality. If the bridge can be built, then we explore where it has taken us.

This I did, but first the premonition. Diana was to be killed, it wasn't to be an obvious murder but faked to look like an accident. How, what, or when I did not know? I constructed possible scenarios of a swimming or boating accident or possibly an accident on the ski slopes.

But why? Was there a rationale behind these thoughts?

Unfortunately yes. Diana was seen as a loose canon, a member of the establishment, but outside of the establishment, a danger to all concerned. Diana in her own words referred to her time as a member of the Royal Family as the "dark ages".

Diana herself reinforced and confirmed my own fears. In her now infamous interview, where she asked to be the Queen of Peoples Hearts, she talked of her fears and paranoia, that her phones were tapped and 'they' were out to get her. You don't have to be paranoid for them to be out to get you, but it helps.

Some years earlier when Andrew Morton's book Diana - Her True Story hit the streets it was met with universal derision and condemnation. Andrew Morton himself was viciously attacked. What was his crime? His crime was to let out the truth. Morton let it be known that his sources were close to the Princess, strong hints were dropped that the Princess approved. The Palace launched a search for the 'mole' who had briefed Morton, Morton had his office burgled, files rifled and a camera stolen. As events unfurled, especially Diana's infamous interview, it became clear that Morton was revealing the truth. The bombshell had yet to be dropped. A few weeks after her death, Morton revealed that the source for his book had been none other than Diana herself, she had supplied him with tapes and corrected the original manuscript.

Morton dropped his bombshell as he launched an updated version of his book. Once again the establishment went into overdrive to condemn Morton. In the US death threats were issued. Morton's timing may have been tacky, motivated more by greed than setting straight the public record, but if anyone had a right to publish a book on Diana it was Morton. This attempt at gagging is reminiscent of the secrecy surrounding the Duke of Windsor, all material on which is embargoed for 100 years.

Following her estrangement from Charles and the Royal Family, Diana was clearly seen as a danger. Would she spill the beans and cause permanent damage, striking at the very heart of the British Establishment. From now on it was Diana who was calling the shots, and she continued to do so right up to her death. She demanded, and got a multi-million pound divorce settlement. Things began to settle down.

Several months before her death, Diana seemed to grow in stature. It was as though she fully realised for the first time the power she had. Who but Diana could crook her finger and have Henry Kissinger at her side one day, and be seen comforting Aids victims or a woman in Bosnia on another. Her arms around Elton John at the funeral of Gianni Versace will be fixed forever in the world's psyche.

The President of the USA only thinks he has power, it was Diana who held the real power. The public reaction to her death showed to what degree her influence had spread across the world.

Diana in Angola 

 

 

 

 

Several months before her death Diana became involved in the campaign to ban landmines. Hilary Clinton had been pushing hard, but got nowhere. Maybe for the very first time realising the extent of her powers Diana offered to help. Visits to Angola, and Bosnia, a well publicised gala in the States. Governments around the world fell into line, Clinton who had steadfastly opposed a ban had no choice but in bad grace to climb aboard the bandwagon before it left without him.

In a press interview following her Angola trip, Diana expressed shock at what she found, and that she had found new fulfilment as a champion of the fight to ban landmines, a crusade she hoped to take to trouble spots around the globe. Her response to critics was to brush their comments aside as 'merely a distraction' and vow not to change course.

A few days before her death Diana was reported by a French journalist (Le Monde) as regarding the position of the previous Conservative government as hopeless. These remarks were immediately retracted by Diana's staff at Kensington Place, the journalist steadfastly clung to her report. Why should the remarks be withdrawn? If Diana believed in her campaign, which clearly she did, then her remarks would have only been an honest assessment, if anything a gross understatement. To withdraw those remarks, which were seen as correct, would only discredit herself and her position.

Politicians who had been baying for her blood, grew ever more strident. What was this woman doing meddling in politics, why didn't she stick to old ladies and little children.

Two weeks before her death the pictures of Dodi al-Fayed and Diana started to appear. A thought went through my mind 'Oh no, she has just signed her own death warrant'. Two weeks later and the rest was history, Diana lay dead in Paris.

Mohamed al-Fayed, the father of Dodi, is the arch-villain of the British Establishment. For years he had been painted in the British media as an evil, cunning, corrupt Egyptian. Here was the man who with relative ease had bribed Members of Parliament and brought down the Conservative Government. The hatred was reported as mutual. Here was a man who had befriended Diana, another person outside of the establishment. Would they pool their resources, was there no depth to which this man would not go? Worse was to come. Looking to the future, would the man be present at the coronation of a future King as his step-grandfather? A future King, head of the Christian Church, defender of the faith, to have a Moslem as a half-brother? Would Diana follow her close friend's example, who had recently married a Pakistani cricketer, and turn into a Moslem? The establishment's worst nightmares were about to come true.

The source of the al-Fayed family wealth has oft been questioned and never satisfactorily answered. This was brought to a head by the bitter battle for control and ownership of Harrods. Mohamed al-Fayed has family links, through his ex-wife, to Adnan Khashoggi, a Middle East arms dealer and possible CIA asset.

This image of Mohamed al-Fayed portrayed in the British press was not that seen by the people who queued for many hours to sign the books of condolence, to them he was a man whose staff brought them food and drink whilst they patiently waited, a man whose son had brought their princess some happiness in her last days on earth, a man who had lost a much loved son, a man who their hearts and sympathy stretched out to almost as much as it did to their beloved princess.

Even the press backed off for a while, expressing their rather guarded sympathy for a man who had just lost his son. The truce was short lived however, no sooner was Diana buried than the dirt on al-Fayed started to reappear in the press.

Yes, it could have a been a very clever publicity stunt, to bring refreshments out, but if it was why did no-one else do it?

If it was murder, who did it, who hatched the plot?

This is not too difficult to answer. A shadowy, dark core at the centre of the establishment, accountable to no one and totally out of control.

Eisenhower was the first to speak of a military-industrial complex out of control. During the talks to defuse the Cuban missile crisis, Kruschev confessed of military forces outside of his control, JFK admitted of the same problem. Kruschev was removed as too soft, JFK assassinated and replaced by the corrupt Johnson who stepped up the Vietnam war. Nixon entered into detente with China and wound down the Vietnam War, shortly afterwards, at the height of his popularity he was brought down by Watergate.

The intelligence services destabilised, then brought down the Wilson Labour Government.

The intelligent services in the UK have been repeatedly exposed as incompetent and out of control. Unlike the US there have been no public enquiries into their activities, there is no public accountability and it is only in recent years that official acknowledgement has been given of their very existence.

Only weeks before the death of Diana, David Shayler, an agent of MI5, the UK internal security service, went public on the incompetence of MI5 and how it had been monitoring important public figures including Jack Straw, Home Secretary (the man nominally in charge of MI5) and Ted Heath, the former Prime Minister. The agent was not leaking any secure information or putting operations at risk, he was simply exposing malpractice and calling from within for greater accountability. To his shame, Jack Straw instead of applauding the man had him silenced.

Silencing Shayler did not shut up the affair. A second MI5 agent, his girlfriend Annie Machon confirmed his story. Both were now on the run in Europe, hiding from the wrath of MI5. Some weeks later, exactly two weeks after the funeral of Diana, Annie Machon returned to England to be arrested at Gatwick airport. The manner of her arrest, was described in The Mail on Sunday (21 September 1997), who had published the initial revelations, as completely over the top, more fitting for a major terrorist or drugs trafficker than someone who had highlighted the failings and shortcomings of the British intelligence services.

It does not take six burly men to arrest one young female of slender build who has returned to the country of her own volition, not that is unless the intention is to intimidate. The frightening scene of the arrest brought back echoes of KGB thugs intimidating dissidents, as did the smashing of the flat Annie Machon shared with David Shayler. Three weeks before her arrest, the security forces used the cover of a search warrant to smash up the flat that Annie Machon shared with David Shayler. If actions speak louder than words then someone was trying to put across a very strong message.

Sunday 2 November 1997, The Mail on Sunday published the most damning revelations yet from ex-MI5 agent David Shayler on the level of incompetence at MI5. As a consequence of internal bungling MI5 failed to prevent the terrorist bombing of the Israeli Embassy in London, and failed to even notify Mossad of what they knew. There was then a crude attempt at a cover up.

Monday 3 November 1997, ex-MI6 agent Richard Tomlinson appeared before Bow Street magistrates' court charged with offences under the Official Secrets Act. He was denied bail and remanded into custody for a week. He had been arrested at his home a couple of days before by Special Branch (the police wing of the Intelligence Services) and subjected to two days of interrogation at Charing Cross high security police station. His 'crime' was to attempt to publish a book on MI6. An injunction had prevented publication within the UK, rumours were circulating that he was about to publish in Australia. His mistake was not to have followed the the example of Peter Wright, ex-MI5 agent and author of Spycatcher published a decade earlier, and decamped to Australia.

A week later, 9 November 1997, The Sunday Times described how, writing from his prison cell in Brixton, Richard Tomlinson saw himself as a political prisoner and the extraordinary lengths MI6 had gone to to hunt him down. And how Tomlinson relished the opportunity from open court to expose the hypocrisy, dishonesty and mismanagement at MI6.

On Thursday 18 December 1997, Tomlinson was sentenced at the Old Bailey to 12 months imprisonment. In passing sentence, the judge said he was doing so 'in the national interest'.

Following his release from prison, Tomlinson was constantly harassed by the intelligence services, and eventually fled the country, even though this was a breach of his parole conditions. He now resides in Geneva. On fleeing the country Tomlinson has made a number of allegations about MI6, one of these includes a plot to assassinate President Milosevic of Yugoslavia that bears an uncanny resemblance to the death of Princess Diana.

The security services fear Internet. Numerous scare stories are planted in the media, repeated attempts are made to ban the use of encryption. Internet is the one free media, outside of government control, outside of unwarranted interference.

On the day following Diana's funeral The Independent on Sunday reported the case of a man who had been stitched up by MI6 (the UK foreign intelligence agency).

Several demonstrators broke into and occupied properties belonging to British Aerospace. The police brought in, before they saw there own lawyers, a lawyer working for BAe who interviewed the demonstrators. They had requested their own lawyers, as was their right, and been denied that right. The police allegedly released the names and addresses of the protesters to BAe. The following morning, so fast did it happen, protesters found temporary injunctions served on them by BAe at their home addresses. These were followed by injunctions that imposed a life time ban on setting foot on any named BAe property (a list several pages long) or being in the vicinity of. The cost of this action by BAe was estimated by one of the lawyers acting for the defenders at a million pounds.

A week after the funeral, The Sunday Telegraph reported the intense lobbying the Pentagon were applying to Clinton not to agree to a ban on landmines. Their worst fears were that Clinton would even agree to the dropping of the US spoiler clause that would allow exemptions where 'national interests' were at stake.

I give these examples as illustrations, I have many more examples at my fingertips.

Diana had successfully campaigned against landmines. What next, a ban on arms to Indonesia, Turkey, a visit with Dodi to Palestinian Camps? Alarm bells were ringing very loudly.

Coincidental with the death of Diana, an Arms Fair was taking place in Farnborough - a town known the world over as the site of theFarnborough International Airshow. To this Arms Fair some of the world's most repressive regimes were honoured guests of the UK Government - Turkey, Indonesia. On the day her death was announced they made a point of carrying on, 'business as usual' was quoted one arms dealer. All week, whilst the world expressed its grief the Arms Fair continued. Meanwhile across the country, major events were cancelled as a mark of respect. Following the funeral, millions observed a minutes silence. In Farnborough, the silence was broken by an executive jet flying into Farnborough Airfield. The merchants of death were clearly determined to give two fingers to one who had dared campaign against them.

The response of the people of Farnborough to this shoddy behaviour was one of anger, revulsion and disgust. Letters published in the local press gave some idea of the anger that was felt.

End of September, beginning of October, Farnborough was scheduled to host COPEX - Covert Operations Exhibition. On display and sale would be instruments of torture. Once again the world's most repressive regimes were to be honoured guests.

Colonel Gadafy of Libya has asked the International Court of Justice in the Hague that when those responsible for the death of Diana be caught they be put on trial in Libya. The reason for what at first glance seems a strange request is that Dodi was a Libyan citizen and Gadafy's belief that both were assassinated by the British Intelligence Services. This belief has widespread acceptance in the Arab world, especially Egypt and Libya.

It is easy to see why. A few weeks after Diana's death, an assassination attempt was made in Jordan by two Mossad agents on a prominent Hamas leader. Initially this was reported as a scuffle with two Canadian tourists. The two 'Canadian tourists' were Mossad agents holding forged Canadian passports. The incident backfired badly on Israel. In order to recover their two agents they were forced to release the spiritual leader of Hamas and dozens of Hamas terrorists.

How did it happen?

In the early hours of Sunday, Stephen Jessel, BBC Paris correspondence was speaking live on the BBC World Service and he was puzzled. How, he almost mused to himself did the paparazzi know Diana was in Paris at the Ritz? It was not public knowledge and he as a respected BBC correspondence was not privy to that knowledge. Earlier in the day she and Dodi had been in Sardinia. Who tipped off the paparazzi? Were they all paparazzi, or had a paparazzi been lent on? Was the chase deliberate? Was it intended to force the car to crash, if not here, then some other time, some other place? Many of the paparazzi disappeared, who were they, can those who were found at the scene shed any light on this? Was the car tampered with?

The driver of the car was an anomaly. Why was he driving so fast? Was the car simply out of control, or was there more to it? The police report on the driver was clearly out of character with those who knew him. The security videos, and those who spoke with him and saw him before he departed on his fateful last journey, back those who speak highly of him. If in spite of all this, he was acting out of character, then why?

Down the right-hand side of the car was a scratch and paint marks, indicating a possible brush with another car. Parts of the rear-end of a Fiat Uno were found at the crash scene, this could indicate a brush with another car or simply that the filthy French do not clean up after an accident. There are rumours floating around Paris of eyewitnesses seeing another car rapidly disappearing from the scene. One eyewitness said he saw a small black car leaving the crash scene at very high speed in what he thought were suspicious circumstances.

The French have refused to release footage from security cameras along the route taken by the Mercedes, or to release footage from their own Ministry of Defence cameras (near the Paris Ritz).

On Wednesday 8 October 1997, the French police announced their intention to check more than 100,000 Fiat Unos, that had been registered in and around the Paris area. It was made known that they were looking for a white Fiat Uno. This clashed with earlier rumours that the paintwork was red, blue or black, indicating, if nothing else, the degree of confusion and disinformation surrounding the case. The police also let it be known, that from the wreckage, it seemed that the Mercedes had been in collision with a Fiat Uno moments before the crash.

An off-duty senior police office, reported being overtaken by a speeding white Fiat Uno, which then slowed and loitered at the tunnel entrance, seemingly waiting for the Mercedes. [The Mirror, Thursday 4 June 1998]

Early June 1998, despite intense efforts by the French police, the Fiat Uno has not been found. Speculation that it has been destroyed, or is now out of the country.

Several witnesses saw a motorcycle cut-up the Mercedes moments before the crash. They also saw a blinding flash, far more intense than a photographic flash. Speculation that this was an anti-personnel device used to disable the driver. [Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash, ITV, Wednesday, 3 June 1998]

Many more people and vehicles are known to have been in the tunnel than have so far given themselves up.

Laurence Pujol, ex-girlfriend of Henri Paul, who had lived with him for five years said he wasn't a heavy drinker. Alexander Wingfield, a bodyguard to Diana and Dodi, spent the two hours before the crash with Henri Paul and detected no sign of drink. He had also driven with Henri Paul in the back-up car from the airport and noted his driving as professional. A sample of the liver showed Henri Paul was not a regular drinker.

On Tuesday 9 September 1997 the results of the third test on the driver were published. All three tests had shown the driver to have consumed high quantities of alcohol. The third test also showed that he had been taking drugs. If the tests are correct then it raises more questions. Why was his behaviour so out of character, why did no one notice?

ITV documentary Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash (Wednesday, 3 June 1998), showed a high carbon monoxide content in Henri Paul's blood that did not correlate with his behaviour.

Henri Paul was at the Ritz two hours before the crash. Where was he between driving from the airport and his being recalled back to the Ritz? This vital gap in his movements, hours before the fatal crash, are still not accounted for.

The first duty of a bodyguard is to protect those in his care. Why did he not ensure the occupants of the car were wearing their seat belts? Moments before the fatal crash, Trevor Rees-Jones fastened his seat belt. Why? Trevor Rees-Jones failed to follow standard protection procedures.

Paul Burrell, Diana's personal butler, arrived in Paris within hours of her death to collect her belongings and arrange their return to London. Though in the company of a Foreign Office official he was kept waiting for 40 minutes. He then found that all Diana's personal effects had been gone through and dispatched back to London. By whom, on whose orders, why? Neither he nor the FO official were able to obtain satisfactory answers to these questions. Paul Burrell found the experience extremely upsetting and distressing.

These and many more questions need to be answered. Mohamed al-Fayed obviously felt something was wrong, why else did he bring in a top forensic scientist. For that he is to be applauded. I can only hope that he also has the foresight to bring in his own investigators and question all those involved. He needs to do this now whilst the evidence is fresh. Only Mohamed al-Fayed has the wealth to conduct such an investigation.

Though al-Fayed also has a vested interest. If the driver was incapacitated, then the Ritz Hotel (as employer) and ultimately al-Fayed (as owner) are culpable. He may have other interests that are not yet apparent.

But, even if the driver was pissed out of his brain and high as a kite, as the third autopsy would seem to indicate, this still does not let the paparazzi of the hook, as it was they who were chasing the car.

The Sunday Telegraph (14 September 1997) reported that the bodyguard, Trevor Rees-Jones was under round-the-clock police protection on the direct orders of the chief of criminal investigations in Paris, Martine Monteil and that Mohamed al-Fayed had hired a team of investigators headed by an unnamed senior ex-Scotland Yard officer.

Will the truth out?

A difficult one to answer - too many people have vested interests, few, if any, of of the major players have clean hands.

Mohamed al-Fayed (the Phoney Egyptian Pharaoh): repeatedly exposed in the British media as a vulgar, corrupt, conniving Egyptian. The DTI report on his business dealings: "The lies of Mohamed Fayed and his success in 'gagging' the press created new fact: that lies were the truth and that the truth was a lie." In their conclusion on the al-Fayed brothers: "dishonestly misrepresented their origins, their wealth, their business interests and their resources", and provided information which they "knew to be false". In an editorial, The Daily Telegraph noted that former Harrods employees had had their apartments bugged on the orders of Mohamed al-Fayed (Wednesday 15 October 1997). The previous day, Neil Hamilton, a former-MP and ex-government minister allegedly bribed by al-Fayed, claimed under oath in a submission to the House of Commons privileges and standards committee, that al-Fayed had personally ordered and overseen the forced entry of safe-deposit boxes stored at Harrods, he went on to say: "Mr Fayed has a well known record of deceit and invention ... an innate capacity for deceit". Scotland Yard confirmed that they were investigating the illegal entry of the safe-deposit boxes. The Observer, Sunday 30 November 1997, reported on the extensive monitoring by al-Fayed on the staff employed at Harrods. On Monday 2 March 1998, al-Fayed was arrested for allegedly stealing and tampering with items belonging to Tiny Rowland that had been stored in safe-deposit boxes at Harrods.

Michael Cole (mouthpiece for al-Fayed): allegedly sacked by the BBC for leaking the Queen's Speech (refuted by Cole), universally detested by the media. On Friday 20 February 1998, Cole dramatically quit his post, apparently even he could no longer stomach the garbage he was spouting (The Express, Saturday 21 February 1998).

Henri Paul (chauffeur, Ritz security): his friends are adamant that he is undergoing character assassination, a British newspaper reported him as a shady character, leading a seedy double life. ITV documentary Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash (Wednesday, 3 June 1998), claimed Henri Paul was a member of the French Intelligence Service. Richard Tomlinson (ex-MI6) has claimed that Henri Paul was working for MI6.

Trevor Rees-Jones (bodyguard): the only major player whose reputation has survived as remarkably clean, but his background as an ex-member of the Parachute Regiment does not enhance his standing, as anyone who has had the misfortune to live in the garrison town of Aldershot will testify, members of the Parachute Regiment are little more than thugs kitted-out in army uniform. On Saturday 28 February 1998, Trevor Rees-Jones issued a statement that following counselling sessions with a psychiatrist he was now able to recall much what of what had happened. The statement raised many questions - to what extent had information been planted in his mind, what undue influence had al-Fayed brought to bear now that Rees-Jones had returned to light duties, was Rees-Jones being paid for his story? On Monday 20 April 1998, Trevor Rees-Jones resigned from the service of al-Fayed, expressing a desire through his layers to 'move his life on'. Wednesday 23 September, Trevor Rees-Jones indicated his intention to sue the company that had hired the Mercedes to the Ritz.

Paul Handley-Greaves ('security expert'): known as a liar and a cheat. Was involved in an elaborate plot to discredit Vanity Fair, by claiming to be in possession of stolen security videos from Harrods.

James Hewitt (ex-lover, widely regarded as a shit): not an immediate player but his revelation in the ITV documentary Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash (Wednesday, 3 June 1998), that he was warned off his relationship with Diana as 'not conducive to his health', that his 'security could not be guaranteed' and that he could meet the same fate as Barry Mannakee (Diana's personal bodyguard, killed in a motorcycle accident, 1988) lends some credence to the possibility Diana's death may not have been an accident. [The Times, Wednesday 3 June 1998]

The Press: blood stained from their implied involvement in the death. Will do anything to shift the blame and focus of attention elsewhere.

The truth may never out. Mid-October 1997, John Burton, the British coroner charged with investigating and recording a verdict on the death of Diana, publicly expressed his concern and frustration at his inability to get at the truth. He cited the disinformation surrounding the case and referred to the conspiracy theories appearing on Internet.

Did they succeed?

First, before I answer, does it make a difference, if, as I posed at the beginning it was an accident, or as the autopsies on the driver indicate, driver error, propelled by the paparazzi? To this the answer is no, as the end objective is met, the Princess is taken out of the game and hands are clean.

To return to the posed question, did they succeed, the simple answer is no, and that has been answered by the millions who responded to her death.

Anyone who spent an evening in Kensington Palace Gardens could not but helped be moved by the spirit that was in the place.

The people want a memorial to Diana, they want more than a pile of stone, they want to see her work continue. As the Palace found to its cost, the public will not back down on this.

A quiet revolution appears to be taking place, thirty years on after the revolutionary mood of the '60s. Then is was a radical element wanting a better world, to be cast aside by the '70s and gruesome '80s, now it is the whole population. A velvet revolution appears to have gripped the psyche. Can it succeed? Maybe, in the '60s the radical youth were greeted by the hard old men who grew up on war and knew nothing else. Now, those radicals of the '60s hold positions of power, are people of influence, will they, can they, deliver what they once dreamed of, now that the public demands it?

Earl Spencer, in probably the most eloquent speech in history, pledged in a tribute to his sister to continue the work of Diana. He pledged to see that her sons would be brought up in the way she would have wished, that they would help to continue her work. It would be a very foolish person indeed who tries to oppose him.

Both Tony Blair and Hilary Clinton have sensed and grasped the public mood. Both have pledged to continue her work.

Outside Kensington Palace, I was struck by flowers from Iraqis mourning what for them was the loss of a beacon of humanity.

The work on landmines has become a foregone conclusion - a world ban. It is amazing who has jumped on the bandwagon following Diana's death. Robin Cook (UK Foreign Secretary) pushing hard for a ban as though it has been his lifelong ambition, if nothing else it has added some substance to his ethical foreign policy which until then noticeably lacking in substance. A general, in a letter to The Times, highlighted the lack of military utility of landmines and gave the campaign his whole-hearted backing. What next, a ban on arms to repressive regimes such as Turkey and Indonesia? This is a logical extension, and probably something Diana would have moved on to once she realised the full extent of her power for good.

For everyone, the world over, a light has gone out, but as the many candles burning in Kensington Palace Gardens has shown, there are many who are determined to keep that light burning.

As one, with Tony Blair and Hilary Clinton I am proud to be counted as one who will help to move her work forward for the poor, the sick, the disadvantaged, for all of humanity.

It is for others to light their own candles to banish the forces of darkness and show that they are finally defeated. The forces of darkness may have extinguished one flame, but a million stand its stead each burning with the same spirit and passion.

There were those who from a position of ignorance and bigotry chose to ridicule this account. History may yet prove them wrong. Within hours of the tragedy, conspiracy theories started to appear on the Web, within days serious questions were raised in Cairo, including the publication of a book. Once the initial shock had wore off, dark hints were made, then questions started to be asked, soon the possible presence of other vehicles became more than mere unsubstantiated rumour and speculation. On Saturday 14 February 1998, The Times raised the issue with the stark headline 'Diana: was it murder?'. The article was attributed to Thomas Sancton and Scott MacLeod, authors of Death of a Princess: An Investigation. Having posed the question, no clear cut answer was given other than to highlight, as has been done here, the many riddles and puzzling elements of her death.

Still more questions were raised in an ITV documentary Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash, broadcast Wednesday, 3 June 1998. The programme raised the possibility of Henri Paul being a member of the French Intelligence Service, serious flaws in his blood sample, and the presence of a motorcyclist who tried to cut-up the Mercedes moments before the crash and may have been the cause of a blinding flash deliberately aimed to disable the driver. In a follow-up studio discussion Bernard Ingham (former mouthpiece of Lady Thatcher) and Rupert Allison (self-styled intelligence expert) both demonstrated their ignorance and bigotry. David Shayler (ex-MI5 agent) was barred by government threats from participating in the studio discussion.

The Murder of Princess Diana
  • Special Report
     
    [The] death of Princess Diana may have its nexus more to the ambulance ride and the treatment during that ride than to the accident itself. With billions of people throughout the planet interested in her death and the cause thereof, it is a deep mystery of why the focus of investigators and media circumvent this critical area of inquiry, which paradoxically seemed to be a mystery to the French Interior Minister and the Police Chief of Paris as well. Our mystery ties in as to why a VIP may have been traveling without a police escort in an ambulance taking, without acceptable explanation, one hour to get to a hospital. The answers have been to transport the injured Diana safely and to "avoid bumps." In that case, it seems every other ambulance throughout the world operates on a different basis, in recognizing a need to get an injured person quickly to a hospital; here, where a team of doctors, awaiting Diana's arrival, may have saved her. To our minds, and the minds of any reasonable man or woman, the one hour trip is inexcusable and carries compelling questions which demand detailed answers.

  • The Diana Forum — Why did it take an hour to get Diana to the hospital? Why did the ambulance stop for ten minutes when just 600 yards away from it? Was she murdered, or brought close to death, by British agents when the ambulance was stopped? Was the purpose of this 10-minute stop to induce an abortion?
     
     
  • Diana's Grave Secret: Police To Probe Charles' Murder Plot
     
    It was clear that with opinion polls showing over 90% of Britons think Diana was murdered, something would have to be done to mount at least a semblance of justice. And a semblance is what we have here.
    The appointment of an already knighted senior police officer, Sir John Stevens to the investigation, indicates that the whole exercise is a sham. Furthermore, Sir John has assigned Commander David Armond to lead the inquiry. Commander Armond is a member of the Met's anti-terrorist branch which is a very political position ...
    All this is reminiscent of the case of the murdered weapons inspector David Kelly. The British establishment simply engaging in the usual sham of investigating itself.

    The car in the crash that killed Princess Diana in Paris was a last-minute replacement either meant as a media diversion or because the vehicle she was supposed to take failed to start, according to British government documents released Tuesday [2005-03-15].

So here's a possible scenario: Diana was (possibly) pregnant by Dodi. The US/British power elite either knew this (perhaps her doctor's office was bugged) or were afraid it might be true. The prospect of someone of Arab descent (and perhaps a Muslim too) being in line to the British throne was anathema to the racist British establishment, and the Americans were concerned about what they saw as Diana's populist political activities (campaigning for an abolition of land mines and so on, with maybe the international arms trade targetted next) so the decision was made to eliminate her. The Mercedes in which she was supposed to leave the Ritz Hotel with Dodi failed to start (as intended by the plotters) and a replacement was produced. The brakes on the replacement car had been sabotaged. Henri Paul, their driver, sped off, followed by paparazzi, one of whom was in contact by phone with the driver of a white Fiat. The Fiat entered the Pont d'Alma Tunnel as Diana's car approached it. Somewhere in the tunnel, with the white Fiat just in front of the Mercedes, a powerful flashgun, aimed at Paul's car, was set off. This blinded Paul, and he hit the brakes, which did not work properly, ensuring that the car would crash. But the crash did not kill Diana. Much to the chagrin of the plotters, she was still alive. An ambulance (previously arranged by the plotters) was brought up and took her away, allegedly taking her to the Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital, 4 miles away. During this trip (which may or may not have involved an abortion) something was done to ensure that Diana would be dead on arrival at the hospital, or would die shortly afterward. The potential problem was thus removed.

Diana, cause of death: ambulance ride which took one hour to travel 6 kilometers, 4 miles, to hospital. Why has no one focused on this platform of inquiry?
  1. Assuming driver, Henri Paul, was at fault due to intoxication, accept the reality that Princess Diana was not dead after the accident. She was very much alive and talking.
  2. The hospital to which she was taken, Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital, was 4 miles (6 kilometers) from the accident, occurring after midnight on a holiday weekend, with many away and the city streets quiet.
  3. Accept the reality that there has been no focus by the media on the at minimum, one hour, ambulance ride to travel 4 miles.
  4. Accept the reality that the time she slipped into the throes of death was during the one hour plus ambulance ride to the hospital.
  5. Le Parisien and Reuters reported that during the ambulance trip, the ambulance stopped to give her a massive injection of adrenaline.
  6. Le Parisien and Reuters further reported that the Interior Minister, Jean-Pierre Chevenement, and the police chief for Paris, France, Phillippe Massoni, two of the most powerful figures in the land, were mystified about the whereabouts of the ambulance due to its failure to timely reach the hospital.
  7. Assuming that ambulances in Paris, France in 1997 have radios or phones, answer why two men, among the most powerful in France, couldn't pick up a telephone and get an answer to the mystery.
  8. Further, consider whether the ambulance was sent without a police escort, and, if so, why.
  9. Subsequently the hospital asserted Diana received no injection of adrenaline during the ambulance ride. Was she treated at the hospital, upon her arrival, without full knowledge of what transpired during the ambulance ride? What did transpire? At the hospital was she (again) injected with adrenaline? Who was on the ambulance? What happened during an inordinate one hour trip with a VIP on board?
  10. Why isn't the media actively and aggressively pursuing this important matter? If a parent found out it took one hour for an ambulance with his or her child to travel four miles after midnight to a hospital, would the parent be justified in being quite angry and entitled to know what happened. If that child was Prince William, would the focus of the inquiry be different than it apparently is with Diana? Would the English newspapers, and others throughout the world, declare: 'One Hour to Get to the Hospital!'
CONCLUSION: Based on the above, one can fairly assert that the death of Princess Diana may have its nexus more to the ambulance ride and the treatment during that ride than to the accident itself. With billions of people throughout the planet interested in her death and the cause thereof, it is a deep mystery of why the focus of investigators and media circumvent this critical area of inquiry, which paradoxically seemed to be a mystery to the French Interior Minister and the Police Chief of Paris as well. Our mystery ties in as to why a VIP may have been traveling without a police escort in an ambulance taking, without acceptable explanation, one hour to get to a hospital. The answers have been to transport the injured Diana safely and to "avoid bumps." In that case, it seems every other ambulance throughout the world operates on a different basis, in recognizing a need to get an injured person quickly to a hospital; here, where a team of doctors, awaiting Diana's arrival, may have saved her. To our minds, and the minds of any reasonable man or woman, the one hour trip is inexcusable and carries compelling questions which demand detailed answers.

Diana - was it an accident or was she killed?

Repose en paix Henri
Tes amis ne sont dupes

"Rest in peace, Henri, your friends have not been fooled" -- words on floral tribute at the funeral of Henri Paul (English trans)

"One day I'm going to go up in a helicopter and not come back down" -- Princess Diana

The conspiracy theorists have been in overdrive. I make make no apology for adding to their output. I have a special reason for doing so - my theories pre-date the death of Princess Diana. About two years before her death a thought came into my mind that Diana would be killed. This would be no assassin's bullet as JFK or John Lennon, but an accident. I had in mind a skiing accident or a tragedy at sea. The thought must have lodged deep in my mind as it troubled me for weeks, then gradually faded away. Looking back I now see I must have had a premonition.

There can be only two reasons for her death, an accident or she was deliberately killed.

An accident can not be ruled out. Accidents happen to the best of us. Even if there was a plot to kill Diana, it could have been pre-empted by an accident.

If it was an accident, it still deserves explanation as all accidents have causes. I am not familiar with the road tunnel alongside the Seine, but I have to ask myself how did the driver lose control? Is there a sharp bend, did he hit something or skid, did the car have a mechanical fault (if so why?), was the driver drunk or in some way intoxicated? These questions can be answered by simple examination and investigation. Dodi's bodyguard is the key to many. The driver being drunk seems at odds with his reputation.

Accident or not, we may never know, but the whole affair has a distinctly uneasy and messy feel to it.

Mid-November 1997, two British Sunday tabloid newspapers published a survey that showed that a very high proportion of those surveyed felt the death of Diana was no accident and that she had been killed to silence her. The methodology used left much to be desired, but with a figure of 98% the results could not be easily dismissed and if nothing else showed the general feeling of disquiet and unease over the death of Princess Diana.

If not an accident, then part of a conspiracy, if so by whom, and for what reason?

Some of this I can answer by going back two years. My initial thoughts on this must have had a very strong impact as they haunted me for weeks and weeks, only very slowly did they fade away.

I almost contacted Diana, but what could either of us have done?

The wildest of ideas can have their basis in reality. This is how creative thought occurs and scientific advances are made. A wild thought occurs, logic is used to build a bridge back to reality. If the bridge can be built, then we explore where it has taken us.

This I did, but first the premonition. Diana was to be killed, it wasn't to be an obvious murder but faked to look like an accident. How, what, or when I did not know? I constructed possible scenarios of a swimming or boating accident or possibly an accident on the ski slopes.

But why? Was there a rationale behind these thoughts?

Unfortunately yes. Diana was seen as a loose canon, a member of the establishment, but outside of the establishment, a danger to all concerned. Diana in her own words referred to her time as a member of the Royal Family as the "dark ages".

Diana herself reinforced and confirmed my own fears. In her now infamous interview, where she asked to be the Queen of Peoples Hearts, she talked of her fears and paranoia, that her phones were tapped and 'they' were out to get her. You don't have to be paranoid for them to be out to get you, but it helps.

Some years earlier when Andrew Morton's book Diana - Her True Story hit the streets it was met with universal derision and condemnation. Andrew Morton himself was viciously attacked. What was his crime? His crime was to let out the truth. Morton let it be known that his sources were close to the Princess, strong hints were dropped that the Princess approved. The Palace launched a search for the 'mole' who had briefed Morton, Morton had his office burgled, files rifled and a camera stolen. As events unfurled, especially Diana's infamous interview, it became clear that Morton was revealing the truth. The bombshell had yet to be dropped. A few weeks after her death, Morton revealed that the source for his book had been none other than Diana herself, she had supplied him with tapes and corrected the original manuscript.

Morton dropped his bombshell as he launched an updated version of his book. Once again the establishment went into overdrive to condemn Morton. In the US death threats were issued. Morton's timing may have been tacky, motivated more by greed than setting straight the public record, but if anyone had a right to publish a book on Diana it was Morton. This attempt at gagging is reminiscent of the secrecy surrounding the Duke of Windsor, all material on which is embargoed for 100 years.

Following her estrangement from Charles and the Royal Family, Diana was clearly seen as a danger. Would she spill the beans and cause permanent damage, striking at the very heart of the British Establishment. From now on it was Diana who was calling the shots, and she continued to do so right up to her death. She demanded, and got a multi-million pound divorce settlement. Things began to settle down.

Several months before her death, Diana seemed to grow in stature. It was as though she fully realised for the first time the power she had. Who but Diana could crook her finger and have Henry Kissinger at her side one day, and be seen comforting Aids victims or a woman in Bosnia on another. Her arms around Elton John at the funeral of Gianni Versace will be fixed forever in the world's psyche.

The President of the USA only thinks he has power, it was Diana who held the real power. The public reaction to her death showed to what degree her influence had spread across the world.

Diana in Angola 

 

 

 

 

Several months before her death Diana became involved in the campaign to ban landmines. Hilary Clinton had been pushing hard, but got nowhere. Maybe for the very first time realising the extent of her powers Diana offered to help. Visits to Angola, and Bosnia, a well publicised gala in the States. Governments around the world fell into line, Clinton who had steadfastly opposed a ban had no choice but in bad grace to climb aboard the bandwagon before it left without him.

In a press interview following her Angola trip, Diana expressed shock at what she found, and that she had found new fulfilment as a champion of the fight to ban landmines, a crusade she hoped to take to trouble spots around the globe. Her response to critics was to brush their comments aside as 'merely a distraction' and vow not to change course.

A few days before her death Diana was reported by a French journalist (Le Monde) as regarding the position of the previous Conservative government as hopeless. These remarks were immediately retracted by Diana's staff at Kensington Place, the journalist steadfastly clung to her report. Why should the remarks be withdrawn? If Diana believed in her campaign, which clearly she did, then her remarks would have only been an honest assessment, if anything a gross understatement. To withdraw those remarks, which were seen as correct, would only discredit herself and her position.

Politicians who had been baying for her blood, grew ever more strident. What was this woman doing meddling in politics, why didn't she stick to old ladies and little children.

Two weeks before her death the pictures of Dodi al-Fayed and Diana started to appear. A thought went through my mind 'Oh no, she has just signed her own death warrant'. Two weeks later and the rest was history, Diana lay dead in Paris.

Mohamed al-Fayed, the father of Dodi, is the arch-villain of the British Establishment. For years he had been painted in the British media as an evil, cunning, corrupt Egyptian. Here was the man who with relative ease had bribed Members of Parliament and brought down the Conservative Government. The hatred was reported as mutual. Here was a man who had befriended Diana, another person outside of the establishment. Would they pool their resources, was there no depth to which this man would not go? Worse was to come. Looking to the future, would the man be present at the coronation of a future King as his step-grandfather? A future King, head of the Christian Church, defender of the faith, to have a Moslem as a half-brother? Would Diana follow her close friend's example, who had recently married a Pakistani cricketer, and turn into a Moslem? The establishment's worst nightmares were about to come true.

The source of the al-Fayed family wealth has oft been questioned and never satisfactorily answered. This was brought to a head by the bitter battle for control and ownership of Harrods. Mohamed al-Fayed has family links, through his ex-wife, to Adnan Khashoggi, a Middle East arms dealer and possible CIA asset.

This image of Mohamed al-Fayed portrayed in the British press was not that seen by the people who queued for many hours to sign the books of condolence, to them he was a man whose staff brought them food and drink whilst they patiently waited, a man whose son had brought their princess some happiness in her last days on earth, a man who had lost a much loved son, a man who their hearts and sympathy stretched out to almost as much as it did to their beloved princess.

Even the press backed off for a while, expressing their rather guarded sympathy for a man who had just lost his son. The truce was short lived however, no sooner was Diana buried than the dirt on al-Fayed started to reappear in the press.

Yes, it could have a been a very clever publicity stunt, to bring refreshments out, but if it was why did no-one else do it?

If it was murder, who did it, who hatched the plot?

This is not too difficult to answer. A shadowy, dark core at the centre of the establishment, accountable to no one and totally out of control.

Eisenhower was the first to speak of a military-industrial complex out of control. During the talks to defuse the Cuban missile crisis, Kruschev confessed of military forces outside of his control, JFK admitted of the same problem. Kruschev was removed as too soft, JFK assassinated and replaced by the corrupt Johnson who stepped up the Vietnam war. Nixon entered into detente with China and wound down the Vietnam War, shortly afterwards, at the height of his popularity he was brought down by Watergate.

The intelligence services destabilised, then brought down the Wilson Labour Government.

The intelligent services in the UK have been repeatedly exposed as incompetent and out of control. Unlike the US there have been no public enquiries into their activities, there is no public accountability and it is only in recent years that official acknowledgement has been given of their very existence.

Only weeks before the death of Diana, David Shayler, an agent of MI5, the UK internal security service, went public on the incompetence of MI5 and how it had been monitoring important public figures including Jack Straw, Home Secretary (the man nominally in charge of MI5) and Ted Heath, the former Prime Minister. The agent was not leaking any secure information or putting operations at risk, he was simply exposing malpractice and calling from within for greater accountability. To his shame, Jack Straw instead of applauding the man had him silenced.

Silencing Shayler did not shut up the affair. A second MI5 agent, his girlfriend Annie Machon confirmed his story. Both were now on the run in Europe, hiding from the wrath of MI5. Some weeks later, exactly two weeks after the funeral of Diana, Annie Machon returned to England to be arrested at Gatwick airport. The manner of her arrest, was described in The Mail on Sunday (21 September 1997), who had published the initial revelations, as completely over the top, more fitting for a major terrorist or drugs trafficker than someone who had highlighted the failings and shortcomings of the British intelligence services.

It does not take six burly men to arrest one young female of slender build who has returned to the country of her own volition, not that is unless the intention is to intimidate. The frightening scene of the arrest brought back echoes of KGB thugs intimidating dissidents, as did the smashing of the flat Annie Machon shared with David Shayler. Three weeks before her arrest, the security forces used the cover of a search warrant to smash up the flat that Annie Machon shared with David Shayler. If actions speak louder than words then someone was trying to put across a very strong message.

Sunday 2 November 1997, The Mail on Sunday published the most damning revelations yet from ex-MI5 agent David Shayler on the level of incompetence at MI5. As a consequence of internal bungling MI5 failed to prevent the terrorist bombing of the Israeli Embassy in London, and failed to even notify Mossad of what they knew. There was then a crude attempt at a cover up.

Monday 3 November 1997, ex-MI6 agent Richard Tomlinson appeared before Bow Street magistrates' court charged with offences under the Official Secrets Act. He was denied bail and remanded into custody for a week. He had been arrested at his home a couple of days before by Special Branch (the police wing of the Intelligence Services) and subjected to two days of interrogation at Charing Cross high security police station. His 'crime' was to attempt to publish a book on MI6. An injunction had prevented publication within the UK, rumours were circulating that he was about to publish in Australia. His mistake was not to have followed the the example of Peter Wright, ex-MI5 agent and author of Spycatcher published a decade earlier, and decamped to Australia.

A week later, 9 November 1997, The Sunday Times described how, writing from his prison cell in Brixton, Richard Tomlinson saw himself as a political prisoner and the extraordinary lengths MI6 had gone to to hunt him down. And how Tomlinson relished the opportunity from open court to expose the hypocrisy, dishonesty and mismanagement at MI6.

On Thursday 18 December 1997, Tomlinson was sentenced at the Old Bailey to 12 months imprisonment. In passing sentence, the judge said he was doing so 'in the national interest'.

Following his release from prison, Tomlinson was constantly harassed by the intelligence services, and eventually fled the country, even though this was a breach of his parole conditions. He now resides in Geneva. On fleeing the country Tomlinson has made a number of allegations about MI6, one of these includes a plot to assassinate President Milosevic of Yugoslavia that bears an uncanny resemblance to the death of Princess Diana.

The security services fear Internet. Numerous scare stories are planted in the media, repeated attempts are made to ban the use of encryption. Internet is the one free media, outside of government control, outside of unwarranted interference.

On the day following Diana's funeral The Independent on Sunday reported the case of a man who had been stitched up by MI6 (the UK foreign intelligence agency).

Several demonstrators broke into and occupied properties belonging to British Aerospace. The police brought in, before they saw there own lawyers, a lawyer working for BAe who interviewed the demonstrators. They had requested their own lawyers, as was their right, and been denied that right. The police allegedly released the names and addresses of the protesters to BAe. The following morning, so fast did it happen, protesters found temporary injunctions served on them by BAe at their home addresses. These were followed by injunctions that imposed a life time ban on setting foot on any named BAe property (a list several pages long) or being in the vicinity of. The cost of this action by BAe was estimated by one of the lawyers acting for the defenders at a million pounds.

A week after the funeral, The Sunday Telegraph reported the intense lobbying the Pentagon were applying to Clinton not to agree to a ban on landmines. Their worst fears were that Clinton would even agree to the dropping of the US spoiler clause that would allow exemptions where 'national interests' were at stake.

I give these examples as illustrations, I have many more examples at my fingertips.

Diana had successfully campaigned against landmines. What next, a ban on arms to Indonesia, Turkey, a visit with Dodi to Palestinian Camps? Alarm bells were ringing very loudly.

Coincidental with the death of Diana, an Arms Fair was taking place in Farnborough - a town known the world over as the site of theFarnborough International Airshow. To this Arms Fair some of the world's most repressive regimes were honoured guests of the UK Government - Turkey, Indonesia. On the day her death was announced they made a point of carrying on, 'business as usual' was quoted one arms dealer. All week, whilst the world expressed its grief the Arms Fair continued. Meanwhile across the country, major events were cancelled as a mark of respect. Following the funeral, millions observed a minutes silence. In Farnborough, the silence was broken by an executive jet flying into Farnborough Airfield. The merchants of death were clearly determined to give two fingers to one who had dared campaign against them.

The response of the people of Farnborough to this shoddy behaviour was one of anger, revulsion and disgust. Letters published in the local press gave some idea of the anger that was felt.

End of September, beginning of October, Farnborough was scheduled to host COPEX - Covert Operations Exhibition. On display and sale would be instruments of torture. Once again the world's most repressive regimes were to be honoured guests.

Colonel Gadafy of Libya has asked the International Court of Justice in the Hague that when those responsible for the death of Diana be caught they be put on trial in Libya. The reason for what at first glance seems a strange request is that Dodi was a Libyan citizen and Gadafy's belief that both were assassinated by the British Intelligence Services. This belief has widespread acceptance in the Arab world, especially Egypt and Libya.

It is easy to see why. A few weeks after Diana's death, an assassination attempt was made in Jordan by two Mossad agents on a prominent Hamas leader. Initially this was reported as a scuffle with two Canadian tourists. The two 'Canadian tourists' were Mossad agents holding forged Canadian passports. The incident backfired badly on Israel. In order to recover their two agents they were forced to release the spiritual leader of Hamas and dozens of Hamas terrorists.

How did it happen?

In the early hours of Sunday, Stephen Jessel, BBC Paris correspondence was speaking live on the BBC World Service and he was puzzled. How, he almost mused to himself did the paparazzi know Diana was in Paris at the Ritz? It was not public knowledge and he as a respected BBC correspondence was not privy to that knowledge. Earlier in the day she and Dodi had been in Sardinia. Who tipped off the paparazzi? Were they all paparazzi, or had a paparazzi been lent on? Was the chase deliberate? Was it intended to force the car to crash, if not here, then some other time, some other place? Many of the paparazzi disappeared, who were they, can those who were found at the scene shed any light on this? Was the car tampered with?

The driver of the car was an anomaly. Why was he driving so fast? Was the car simply out of control, or was there more to it? The police report on the driver was clearly out of character with those who knew him. The security videos, and those who spoke with him and saw him before he departed on his fateful last journey, back those who speak highly of him. If in spite of all this, he was acting out of character, then why?

Down the right-hand side of the car was a scratch and paint marks, indicating a possible brush with another car. Parts of the rear-end of a Fiat Uno were found at the crash scene, this could indicate a brush with another car or simply that the filthy French do not clean up after an accident. There are rumours floating around Paris of eyewitnesses seeing another car rapidly disappearing from the scene. One eyewitness said he saw a small black car leaving the crash scene at very high speed in what he thought were suspicious circumstances.

The French have refused to release footage from security cameras along the route taken by the Mercedes, or to release footage from their own Ministry of Defence cameras (near the Paris Ritz).

On Wednesday 8 October 1997, the French police announced their intention to check more than 100,000 Fiat Unos, that had been registered in and around the Paris area. It was made known that they were looking for a white Fiat Uno. This clashed with earlier rumours that the paintwork was red, blue or black, indicating, if nothing else, the degree of confusion and disinformation surrounding the case. The police also let it be known, that from the wreckage, it seemed that the Mercedes had been in collision with a Fiat Uno moments before the crash.

An off-duty senior police office, reported being overtaken by a speeding white Fiat Uno, which then slowed and loitered at the tunnel entrance, seemingly waiting for the Mercedes. [The Mirror, Thursday 4 June 1998]

Early June 1998, despite intense efforts by the French police, the Fiat Uno has not been found. Speculation that it has been destroyed, or is now out of the country.

Several witnesses saw a motorcycle cut-up the Mercedes moments before the crash. They also saw a blinding flash, far more intense than a photographic flash. Speculation that this was an anti-personnel device used to disable the driver. [Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash, ITV, Wednesday, 3 June 1998]

Many more people and vehicles are known to have been in the tunnel than have so far given themselves up.

Laurence Pujol, ex-girlfriend of Henri Paul, who had lived with him for five years said he wasn't a heavy drinker. Alexander Wingfield, a bodyguard to Diana and Dodi, spent the two hours before the crash with Henri Paul and detected no sign of drink. He had also driven with Henri Paul in the back-up car from the airport and noted his driving as professional. A sample of the liver showed Henri Paul was not a regular drinker.

On Tuesday 9 September 1997 the results of the third test on the driver were published. All three tests had shown the driver to have consumed high quantities of alcohol. The third test also showed that he had been taking drugs. If the tests are correct then it raises more questions. Why was his behaviour so out of character, why did no one notice?

ITV documentary Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash (Wednesday, 3 June 1998), showed a high carbon monoxide content in Henri Paul's blood that did not correlate with his behaviour.

Henri Paul was at the Ritz two hours before the crash. Where was he between driving from the airport and his being recalled back to the Ritz? This vital gap in his movements, hours before the fatal crash, are still not accounted for.

The first duty of a bodyguard is to protect those in his care. Why did he not ensure the occupants of the car were wearing their seat belts? Moments before the fatal crash, Trevor Rees-Jones fastened his seat belt. Why? Trevor Rees-Jones failed to follow standard protection procedures.

Paul Burrell, Diana's personal butler, arrived in Paris within hours of her death to collect her belongings and arrange their return to London. Though in the company of a Foreign Office official he was kept waiting for 40 minutes. He then found that all Diana's personal effects had been gone through and dispatched back to London. By whom, on whose orders, why? Neither he nor the FO official were able to obtain satisfactory answers to these questions. Paul Burrell found the experience extremely upsetting and distressing.

These and many more questions need to be answered. Mohamed al-Fayed obviously felt something was wrong, why else did he bring in a top forensic scientist. For that he is to be applauded. I can only hope that he also has the foresight to bring in his own investigators and question all those involved. He needs to do this now whilst the evidence is fresh. Only Mohamed al-Fayed has the wealth to conduct such an investigation.

Though al-Fayed also has a vested interest. If the driver was incapacitated, then the Ritz Hotel (as employer) and ultimately al-Fayed (as owner) are culpable. He may have other interests that are not yet apparent.

But, even if the driver was pissed out of his brain and high as a kite, as the third autopsy would seem to indicate, this still does not let the paparazzi of the hook, as it was they who were chasing the car.

The Sunday Telegraph (14 September 1997) reported that the bodyguard, Trevor Rees-Jones was under round-the-clock police protection on the direct orders of the chief of criminal investigations in Paris, Martine Monteil and that Mohamed al-Fayed had hired a team of investigators headed by an unnamed senior ex-Scotland Yard officer.

Will the truth out?

A difficult one to answer - too many people have vested interests, few, if any, of of the major players have clean hands.

Mohamed al-Fayed (the Phoney Egyptian Pharaoh): repeatedly exposed in the British media as a vulgar, corrupt, conniving Egyptian. The DTI report on his business dealings: "The lies of Mohamed Fayed and his success in 'gagging' the press created new fact: that lies were the truth and that the truth was a lie." In their conclusion on the al-Fayed brothers: "dishonestly misrepresented their origins, their wealth, their business interests and their resources", and provided information which they "knew to be false". In an editorial, The Daily Telegraph noted that former Harrods employees had had their apartments bugged on the orders of Mohamed al-Fayed (Wednesday 15 October 1997). The previous day, Neil Hamilton, a former-MP and ex-government minister allegedly bribed by al-Fayed, claimed under oath in a submission to the House of Commons privileges and standards committee, that al-Fayed had personally ordered and overseen the forced entry of safe-deposit boxes stored at Harrods, he went on to say: "Mr Fayed has a well known record of deceit and invention ... an innate capacity for deceit". Scotland Yard confirmed that they were investigating the illegal entry of the safe-deposit boxes. The Observer, Sunday 30 November 1997, reported on the extensive monitoring by al-Fayed on the staff employed at Harrods. On Monday 2 March 1998, al-Fayed was arrested for allegedly stealing and tampering with items belonging to Tiny Rowland that had been stored in safe-deposit boxes at Harrods.

Michael Cole (mouthpiece for al-Fayed): allegedly sacked by the BBC for leaking the Queen's Speech (refuted by Cole), universally detested by the media. On Friday 20 February 1998, Cole dramatically quit his post, apparently even he could no longer stomach the garbage he was spouting (The Express, Saturday 21 February 1998).

Henri Paul (chauffeur, Ritz security): his friends are adamant that he is undergoing character assassination, a British newspaper reported him as a shady character, leading a seedy double life. ITV documentary Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash (Wednesday, 3 June 1998), claimed Henri Paul was a member of the French Intelligence Service. Richard Tomlinson (ex-MI6) has claimed that Henri Paul was working for MI6.

Trevor Rees-Jones (bodyguard): the only major player whose reputation has survived as remarkably clean, but his background as an ex-member of the Parachute Regiment does not enhance his standing, as anyone who has had the misfortune to live in the garrison town of Aldershot will testify, members of the Parachute Regiment are little more than thugs kitted-out in army uniform. On Saturday 28 February 1998, Trevor Rees-Jones issued a statement that following counselling sessions with a psychiatrist he was now able to recall much what of what had happened. The statement raised many questions - to what extent had information been planted in his mind, what undue influence had al-Fayed brought to bear now that Rees-Jones had returned to light duties, was Rees-Jones being paid for his story? On Monday 20 April 1998, Trevor Rees-Jones resigned from the service of al-Fayed, expressing a desire through his layers to 'move his life on'. Wednesday 23 September, Trevor Rees-Jones indicated his intention to sue the company that had hired the Mercedes to the Ritz.

Paul Handley-Greaves ('security expert'): known as a liar and a cheat. Was involved in an elaborate plot to discredit Vanity Fair, by claiming to be in possession of stolen security videos from Harrods.

James Hewitt (ex-lover, widely regarded as a shit): not an immediate player but his revelation in the ITV documentary Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash (Wednesday, 3 June 1998), that he was warned off his relationship with Diana as 'not conducive to his health', that his 'security could not be guaranteed' and that he could meet the same fate as Barry Mannakee (Diana's personal bodyguard, killed in a motorcycle accident, 1988) lends some credence to the possibility Diana's death may not have been an accident. [The Times, Wednesday 3 June 1998]

The Press: blood stained from their implied involvement in the death. Will do anything to shift the blame and focus of attention elsewhere.

The truth may never out. Mid-October 1997, John Burton, the British coroner charged with investigating and recording a verdict on the death of Diana, publicly expressed his concern and frustration at his inability to get at the truth. He cited the disinformation surrounding the case and referred to the conspiracy theories appearing on Internet.

Did they succeed?

First, before I answer, does it make a difference, if, as I posed at the beginning it was an accident, or as the autopsies on the driver indicate, driver error, propelled by the paparazzi? To this the answer is no, as the end objective is met, the Princess is taken out of the game and hands are clean.

To return to the posed question, did they succeed, the simple answer is no, and that has been answered by the millions who responded to her death.

Anyone who spent an evening in Kensington Palace Gardens could not but helped be moved by the spirit that was in the place.

The people want a memorial to Diana, they want more than a pile of stone, they want to see her work continue. As the Palace found to its cost, the public will not back down on this.

A quiet revolution appears to be taking place, thirty years on after the revolutionary mood of the '60s. Then is was a radical element wanting a better world, to be cast aside by the '70s and gruesome '80s, now it is the whole population. A velvet revolution appears to have gripped the psyche. Can it succeed? Maybe, in the '60s the radical youth were greeted by the hard old men who grew up on war and knew nothing else. Now, those radicals of the '60s hold positions of power, are people of influence, will they, can they, deliver what they once dreamed of, now that the public demands it?

Earl Spencer, in probably the most eloquent speech in history, pledged in a tribute to his sister to continue the work of Diana. He pledged to see that her sons would be brought up in the way she would have wished, that they would help to continue her work. It would be a very foolish person indeed who tries to oppose him.

Both Tony Blair and Hilary Clinton have sensed and grasped the public mood. Both have pledged to continue her work.

Outside Kensington Palace, I was struck by flowers from Iraqis mourning what for them was the loss of a beacon of humanity.

The work on landmines has become a foregone conclusion - a world ban. It is amazing who has jumped on the bandwagon following Diana's death. Robin Cook (UK Foreign Secretary) pushing hard for a ban as though it has been his lifelong ambition, if nothing else it has added some substance to his ethical foreign policy which until then noticeably lacking in substance. A general, in a letter to The Times, highlighted the lack of military utility of landmines and gave the campaign his whole-hearted backing. What next, a ban on arms to repressive regimes such as Turkey and Indonesia? This is a logical extension, and probably something Diana would have moved on to once she realised the full extent of her power for good.

For everyone, the world over, a light has gone out, but as the many candles burning in Kensington Palace Gardens has shown, there are many who are determined to keep that light burning.

As one, with Tony Blair and Hilary Clinton I am proud to be counted as one who will help to move her work forward for the poor, the sick, the disadvantaged, for all of humanity.

It is for others to light their own candles to banish the forces of darkness and show that they are finally defeated. The forces of darkness may have extinguished one flame, but a million stand its stead each burning with the same spirit and passion.

There were those who from a position of ignorance and bigotry chose to ridicule this account. History may yet prove them wrong. Within hours of the tragedy, conspiracy theories started to appear on the Web, within days serious questions were raised in Cairo, including the publication of a book. Once the initial shock had wore off, dark hints were made, then questions started to be asked, soon the possible presence of other vehicles became more than mere unsubstantiated rumour and speculation. On Saturday 14 February 1998, The Times raised the issue with the stark headline 'Diana: was it murder?'. The article was attributed to Thomas Sancton and Scott MacLeod, authors of Death of a Princess: An Investigation. Having posed the question, no clear cut answer was given other than to highlight, as has been done here, the many riddles and puzzling elements of her death.

Still more questions were raised in an ITV documentary Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash, broadcast Wednesday, 3 June 1998. The programme raised the possibility of Henri Paul being a member of the French Intelligence Service, serious flaws in his blood sample, and the presence of a motorcyclist who tried to cut-up the Mercedes moments before the crash and may have been the cause of a blinding flash deliberately aimed to disable the driver. In a follow-up studio discussion Bernard Ingham (former mouthpiece of Lady Thatcher) and Rupert Allison (self-styled intelligence expert) both demonstrated their ignorance and bigotry. David Shayler (ex-MI5 agent) was barred by government threats from participating in the studio discussion.

US Spy Tapes Reveal Diana Was Pregnant
    by GORDON THOMAS
EXPLOSIVE tapes on the secret life of Princess Diana will prove that she was pregnant and intended to marry Dodi Al Fayed, it was claimed last night. 

American secret agents regularly monitored Diana's conversations and collated 1,000 secret documents using its "spy in the sky", the National Security Agency. 

They were obtained by its Echelon satellite surveillance system and contain highly sensitive material including her marriage plans, her views on Prince Philip, who was known to be highly critical of her, and new details of her love affair with James Hewitt. Now, lawyers acting for Mohamed Al Fayed are trying to obtain the tapes through America's Freedom of Information Act. 

They hope to present the evidence at Diana's inquest, which is expected to take place next year. 

The covert monitoring was controlled from the ultra-secret NSA base at Menwith Hill in the north of England during the last weeks of Diana's affair with Dodi. 

A spokesman for Dodi's father, Mohamed Al Fayed, the millionaire owner of Harrods, said: "Mr Al Fayed believes that those intercepts will reveal conversations in which Princess Diana discussed her engagement to Dodi and her pregnancy.

Diana, Princess of Wales: Did MI6 Kill Her?

Princess's Diana Memorial in Hyde Park. Copyright © LondonNet Ltd 2006
Following Diana's sudden death in Paris, August 31, 1997 many doubts have surrounded the official story of the paparazzi chasing a drunk driver at speed toward an inevitable and tragic accident. Below you will find an examination of the evidence surrounding the number one conspiracy theory- MI6 killed Diana...

The Two Main Theories

a) One or more rogue "cells" in the British secret service construct and carry out a plot to kill Diana.
b) An official campaign by MI6 to assasinate Diana, sanctioned by elements of the establishment.

The Possible Motives

a) The rogue elements in MI5 (National security) or MI6 (International security) decide that Di is a threat to the throne, and therefore the stability of the state. They take her out.
b) With similar motives to the possible rogue elements, the official campaign is driven by a fear of Diana's possible to conversion to Islam (Dodi being a Muslim) and the implication on the Church and State were the two Princes, William and Harry, to follow their mother's lead.

The Evidence

Circumstantial it maybe, but put together is it capable of raising sufficient doubt that this was an accident?
Below are some of the questions and doubts that are raised by the investigation so far
 



The rapid disposal of the bodies of Diana and Dodi. Diana 
had no post mortem prior to burial in Althorp. Victims of sudden death require a post mortem by law in the UK.
The missing white Fiat Uno: With such a large-scale investigation by French authorities could only secret agents have evaded the police's net around Paris? We know the car hit the Mercedes used by Di and Dodi, thanks to traceable paint marks on the Benz. Witnesses refer to the car lurching around the road at varying speeds as both it and the Merc entered the tunnel of death.
Henri Paul, driver of the Limo. The mis-information surrounding this key figure is enormous. First he was said to be driving at up to 120 mph, recent reports by professional crash investigators suggest 60 mph, even less on impact.
Was he really drunk? It is accepted that he had two Ricard drinks at the Ritz, but no other evidence has emerged to support this claim, beyond questionable results from a blood test from his corpse. Why questionable? Because it is common for the alcohol level to rise in bodies after death regardless of consumption. The test also showed a very high level of carbon monoxide (20 per cent) in his blood. Experts say this would have incapacitated him before he set off on his fatal journey, and yet the hotel's video evidence shows him walking around and talking normally. An alcoholic? Well , as a pilot, he passed a rigorous health check two days before the accident. His liver showed no signs of abuse on post-mortem.
Then there is the question of the multiple bank accounts Paul held, with balances showing income far in excess of his 20 000 UKP salary as acting head of security at the Ritz. Some friends have suggested he was a long term "sleeper" agent for a secret service agency, almost certainly French intelligence.
Trevor Rees Jones (Fayed bodyguard)- The only survivor. One time member of Her Majesty's armed forces, rumours suggest he may have been a "sleeper" agent for MI5 or MI6, particularly as the establishment were keen to keep tabs on Mohammed Al Fayed. Why was he the only person in the car to wear a safety-belt?
Explosion, followed by Bang- Immediately after the crash news was broadcast, witnesses appeared on US TV saying that they heard an explosion or bang before they heard the car crash. Was this a gunshot, or a bomb?
White Light- Other witnesses describe an extremely bright white light, much stronger than a photographer's flashbulb, illuminating the tunnel before the crash sounds. Powerful anti-personnel flash-guns are available to private citizens for as little as 250 UKP. The security forces have access to much stronger tools. All of which are capable of blinding a victim for several minutes - easily enough to cause a fatal crash. Crucially there would be no physical evidence left for investigators.
James Hewitt- Former lover of Diana claims he was warned on several occasions by elements of the security forces and a member of the royal family to stop seeing the Princess or his health would suffer! Hewitt has been exposed previously as being very willing to exploit a situation for his own ends, as in the publication of a sleazy book about Diana to which he contributed.
Paparazzi- Initially blamed for the crash, most witnesses seem to agree that the bikes were not close enough to the Mercedes in the tunnel to have actually interfered with its progress.
 
NB These are just a selection of matters which cause concern for investigators. Many other points are raised by the "accident" but for reasons of space are not dealt with here.

Conclusions

There are many questions that arise out of this incident. The most plausible explanation still appears to be a tragic accident - Paul who was driving to some degree under the influence of alcohol, tried to accelerate away from the pursuing photographers, lost control going into the tunnel (after the slight curve in the road, and maybe as the Uno impeded his progress) and crashed into the tunnel's thirteenth pillar.
This maybe the most plausible explanation, however, we feel that without dramatic new evidence , such as the Uno and driver turning up, this will never be certain.
While there remains doubt as to whether it was an accident it is reasonable to question what the possible alternatives are. The most plausible of these has to involve members of the UK establishment and secret service as few others had anything to lose from Diana and Dodi's relationship. To keep such a plot secret we believe it would have to be the work of a small, isolated cell working under its own auspices within the system.
Former agents have told of a plot to destabilise the then Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson in the Seventies. Wilson did indeed resign from office, shocking political commentators at the time. We know that our intelligence service keeps records on Peace campaigners and Union officials for the "threat" of being radicals.
If the service really does operate as efficiently as James Bond films lead us to believe, which we doubt very strongly, then there would be nothing to stop them orchestrating Diana's death AND making it appear to be an accident.
But as yet there is clearly more evidence to support an accident than a secret plot. For us though, the jury is still out.
 
Al Qaeda Threat to Kill Harry In Iraq.

 Terrorists have vowed to kidnap or kill Prince Harry when he fights in Iraq, it is reported. 
The 22-year-old is due to be sent out in May with colleagues from the Blues and Royals regiment. Threats have been posted on extremist websites since his deployment was revealed, The Sun says. One message said: "Prince Harry will be sent to Iraq to be killed by Muslims." Another added: "May Allah give him what he deserves - like his fellow crusaders." Army officials fear the Prince will be paraded on television if he is kidnapped. 
A Blues and Royals source told the paper: "Officially Harry is being treated just like any other soldier but in reality everyone knows how desperate the insurgents out there will be to get their hands on him."
 Internet terror expert Neil Doyle was quoted as saying: "Harry would be the ultimate prize for one of these insurgent groups. "He would be worth his weight in gold in propaganda terms if killed or captured." From the end of May, the prince will be patrolling in Scimitar armoured reconnaissance vehicles in Maysan. Harry will this week pose as a hooded hostage in a special training exercise, the paper says. 
His men will use tear gas and stun grenades to free him. More than 100 UK soldiers have been killed since the 2003 invasion.


 

Princess Diana Murder Cover-Up Turns Deadly

by Jeffrey Steinberg
Nearly three years after the Paris car crash that claimed the lives of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed, the cover-up of that tragedy has taken a deadly turn, prompting some experts to recall the pileup of corpses that followed the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Over the course of four years, after President Kennedy was shot on Nov. 22, 1963, at least 37 eyewitnesses and other sources of evidence about the crime, including one member of the infamous Warren Commission, which oversaw the cover-up, died under mysterious circumstances. On May 5, 2000, police in the south of France found a badly burned body inside the wreckage of a car, deep in the woods near Nantes. The body was so charred that it took police nearly a month before DNA tests confirmed that the dead man was Jean-Paul "James" Andanson, a 54-year-old millionaire photographer, who was among the paparazzi stalking Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed during the week before their deaths. From the day of the fatal crash in the Place de l'Alma tunnel, that killed Diana, Dodi, and driver Henri Paul, and severely injured bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones, Andanson had been at the center of the controversy. Mohamed Al-Fayed, the father of Dodi Fayed, and the owner of Harrods Department Store in London and the Paris Ritz Hotel, has labelled the Aug. 31, 1997 crash a murder, ordered by the British royal family, and most likely executed through agents and assets of the British secret intelligence service MI6--with collusion from French officials, whose cooperation in the cover-up would have been essential. At least seven eyewitnesses to the crash said that they saw a white Fiat Uno and a motorcycle speed out of the tunnel, seconds after the crash. Forensic tests have confirmed that a white Fiat Uno collided with the Mercedes carrying Diana and Dodi, and that this collision was a significant factor in the crash. Several eyewitnesses told police that they saw a powerful flash of light just seconds before the Mercedes swerved out of control and crashed into the 13th pillar of the Alma tunnel. That bright light--either a camera flash or a far more powerful flash of a laser weapon--was probably fired by the passenger on the back of the speeding motorcycle. Both the motorcycle and the white Fiat fled the crash scene, and police claim they have been unable to locate either vehicle, or identify the drivers or the passengers. 

Andanson's White Fiat

Andanson had been in and around Sardinia during the last week of August 1997, as Diana and Dodi vacationed in the Mediterranean. He joined several dozen other paparazzi, who were stalking the couple's every move. He was back in France on Aug. 30, the day that Diana and Dodi flew to Paris. And that is where the facts about Andanson's activities and whereabouts get very fuzzy. For reasons that he never revealed, sometime before dawn on Aug. 31, 1997, less than six hours after the crash in the Alma tunnel, Andanson boarded a flight at Orly Airport near Paris, bound for Corsica. Andanson claimed that he was not in Paris earlier in the evening, when the crash occurred, but he never produced any evidence, save a receipt for the purchase of gasoline elsewhere in France (which he could have doctored or obtained from another person), to prove he was not in the city. His son James and his daughter Kimberly told police that they thought their father was grape-harvesting in the Bordeaux region. Andanson's wife Elizabeth claimed that she had been at home with her husband all night, at their country home, Le Manoir de la Bergerie, in Cher, until he abruptly left for Orly, at 3:45 a.m., to catch the crack-of-dawn flight to Corsica. Pressed on her version of the story, Mrs. Anderson later admitted to reporters and police that her husband was constantly on the run, and she could have been mistaken about the night in question. She told The Express, a British newspaper, "It was always very difficult to recall James's precise movements because he was always coming and going. The family was very used to that and so never paid a great deal of attention to the times he came and went." What makes Andanson's precise itinerary the night of the fatal crash so vital is this: He owned and drove a white Fiat Uno. The car was repainted shortly after the Aug. 31, 1997 Alma tunnel crash, and was sold by Andanson in October 1997. And, although the official report of the French authorities investigating the crash concluded that Andanson's car was not involved in the crash, French forensic reports made available to The Express told a very different story. One report in the files of Judge Hervé Stephan, the chief investigating magistrate in the Diana-Dodi crash probe, described the tests on Andanson's Fiat: "The comparative analysis of the infrared spectra characterizing the vehicle's original paint, reference Bianco 210, and the trace on the side-view mirror of the Mercedes shows that their absorption bands are identical." In laymen's terms, the paint scratches from the Fiat found on the side-view mirror of the Mercedes were identical to the paint samples taken from the matching spot on Andanson's Fiat. The report continued: "The comparative analysis between the infrared spectra characterizing the black polymer taken from the vehicle's fender, and the trace taken from the door of the Mercedes, show that their absorption bands are identical." In short, despite the French investigators' endorsement of Andanson's alibi, the forensic tests strongly suggested that his car may have been the white Fiat Uno involved in the fatal crash. John Macnamara, the Harrods director of security, and a retired senior Scotland Yard supervisor of investigations, told reporters: "Mr. Andanson had for some time been a prime suspect who had relentlessly pursued Diana and Dodi prior to their arrival in Paris. We have always believed that Andanson was at the scene and that more investigation should have been done into his possible involvement." Macnamara added, "We believe that his death is no coincidence and that this is a line of inquiry which may help to discover the truth. Was Mr. Andanson killed because of what he knew? That is a question we want answered."
 
The `Suicide' Soap Opera
Needless to say, Andanson's death stirred up renewed interest in Diana's death at a most inopportune time for the British royals, and those in France who abetted the cover-up. Sometime in September, an appellate court in Paris will rule on Al-Fayed's motion to order Judge Stephan to reopen the crash probe, based on the fact that Stephan shut down his probe before certain vital avenues of inquiry were fully explored, and in contradiction to his own interim report, which cited several glaring paradoxes in the evidence that remained unresolved at the point that he abruptly closed down his investigation last year and blamed the crash on driver Henri Paul. For example, U.S. intelligence agencies, including the National Security Agency, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the Defense Intelligence Agency, have all acknowledged, in response to Freedom of Information Act queries, that they have thousands of pages of documents on Princess Diana. Those documents, for the most part, remain under lock and key. In addition to those documents and other relevant evidence, it has been recently exposed that a secret U.S.-U.K. joint surveillance program, code-named "Project Echelon," had apparently been involved in round-the-clock monitoring of Princess Diana's telephone conversations, while she was at home in England and travelling around the globe. Until the contents of these U.S. government files and electronic intercepts have been reviewed by French investigators, Al-Fayed's lawyers have argued, the probe cannot be considered complete. And the U.S. Justice Department continues to stonewall on indicting three Americans who were involved in an attempted $20 million extortion of Al-Fayed in April 1998, centered around purported "CIA documents" proving that British intelligence assassinated Diana and Dodi. While the "CIA documents" seized from one of the plotters have been confirmed to have been clever forgeries, questions remain about the accuracy of the content of the documents. In a flagrant effort to dampen interest in the Andanson factor, the June 11 Mail on Sunday, a pro-royalist tabloid, ran a story proclaiming "Wife's Affair Led to Paparazzi Man's Car Blaze Suicide." The Mail on Sunday dutifully peddled the French government's cover story: "The millionaire photographer who trailed Diana, Princess of Wales in St. Tropez just days before her death, committed suicide when he discovered his wife was cheating on him, French police have revealed. . . . The eccentric millionaire--who was hailed by colleagues as one of the godfathers of paparazzi photography, and who flew a Union Flag over his house to show his love of Britain--was facing a family crisis at the time of his death." Mail on Sunday reporter Ian Sparks quoted an unnamed colleague of Andanson's at the Sipa Agency in Paris, making the preposterously contradictory claim that Andanson "was desperate to save his marriage. We would never have guessed he would do something so terrible." He committed suicide to save his marriage! Right. A French police spokesman told Sparks, "He took his own life by dousing himself and the car with petrol and then setting light to it." Andanson's widow Elizabeth, and their son James have rejected the idea that Andanson's death was suicide. Sources close to the family told EIR that they have pressed French officials to conduct a murder investigation into Andanson's death 400-miles from his home. The sources dismiss the bogus "marital problems" story and additionally report that Andanson was in high spirits over his new job with the Sipa Agency.

The Plot Thickens

Just after midnight on June 16, just one week after Andanson's death was first made public, three masked men armed with handguns, broke into the Sipa office in Paris, shooting a security guard in the foot. The three assailants dismantled all of the security cameras in the office, and proceeded to enter several specific offices, clearly aware of exactly what they were looking for. They made off with several cameras, laptop computers, and computer hard drives. Sipa's office employs more than 200 people, and operates 24-hours a day. The three invaders spent three hours in the office, holding other employees hostage. According to one of the hostages, the men were never concerned about the French police arriving at the scene. This hostage was convinced that the three "burglars" were themselves working for some branch of the French Secret Service. Furthermore, the source confirmed that Andanson had worked for French and, undoubtedly, British security agencies. The owner of Sipa, Sipa Hioglou, has worked closely with French intelligence, and, not surprisingly, has been one of the primary sources of the "marital problems/suicide" cover story about Andanson's death, "confessing" to French police and reporters that Andanson had confided in him that he planned to take his own life. Hioglou, in the days following the bizarre break-in and hostage siege of his office, also told police that he suspected that the raid was done on behalf of a disgruntled celebrity who was angry that her picture had been taken by a Sipa paparazzo without her permission. In stark contrast, other Sipa employees have told the police that the idea that Andanson committed suicide was preposterous, and that they suspect that the break-in was related to his death.
 
What Is Going On?
The Sipa raid, the obvious work of French Secret Service assets, raises some very troubling questions. If Macnamara and Al-Fayed are right, and Andanson was at the crash site on Aug. 31, 1997, and his white Fiat was the car that collided with the Mercedes, what documentation exists of his presence at the tunnel? What photographs exist of the crash scene, and what do they reveal? Was some of this material seized from the Sipa offices in the recent break-in, to assure that it never sees the light of day? Evidence has recently come to light, that within hours of the crash, British and French secret service agencies carried out a series of similar break-ins at the homes and offices of several photo-agency personnel, in a desperate search for photos of the crash site that may have been transmitted in the hours immediately after the Alma tunnel collision, and before word of Princess Diana's death was made public. EIR has obtained copies of sworn statements from two London-based photographers, Darryn Paul Lyons and Lionel Cherruault, which reveal that British intelligence was hyperactive in the hours immediately after the Alma tunnel crash, desperately seeking any revealing photographs that might have been spirited out of Paris. Lyons identified himself as the "Chairman of `Big Pictures,' . . . an international photographic agency in London, New York, and Sydney, specializing in obtaining and selling unique and exclusive celebrity-based photographs." At 12:30 a.m. on Aug. 31, 1997, Lyons received a phone call from a Paris paparazzo, Lorent Sola, who said that he had a dozen photographs of the accident at the Alma tunnel. Sola offered to electronically transmit the photos to Lyons immediately, and Lyons rushed off to his office, receiving the high-resolution photographs at approximately 3 a.m. Lyons immediately began negotiating with several large news organizations in the United States and Britain to sell the pictures for $250,000. Lyons and Sola conferred after word of Diana's death was made public, and they decided to withdraw the offer of the pictures. Copies of the photos were placed in Lyons' office safe. Sometime between 11 p.m. on Aug. 31 and 12:30 a.m. on Sept. 1, the electricity at Lyons' office was mysteriously cut, although no other power outages in the office building or the neighborhood occurred. Lyons, convinced that either the office was being robbed, or bombed, called the police. In his sworn statement, Lyons declared that he believed that secret service agents had broken into his office and either searched the premises or planted surveillance and listening devices. Lionel Cherruault, a London-based photo journalist for Sipa Agency, in his sworn statement, reported that, at 1:45 a.m. on Aug. 31, 1997, he received a call at his home from a freelance photographer in Florida, informing him that he was expecting to soon be in possession of photographs of the tunnel crash. Cherruault told the Florida contact that he was interested. After word of Diana's death was announced, the deal fell through. But Cherruault, who was in contact with his boss at Sipa, stated that, at approximately 3:30 a.m. on Sept. 1, while he and his wife and daughter were asleep, his home was broken into, his wife's car was stolen, and his car was moved. Computer disks used for transmitting photographs, and other electronic equipment, were stolen, and the front door of their home was left wide open. Even though cash, credit cards, and jewelry were visible in the study where the burglars stole the computer equipment, none of those valuables were taken, making it clear that this was not an ordinary break-in. The next day, a police officer came to Cherruault's home and confirmed that the break-in was clearly the work of "Special Branch, MI5, MI6, call it what you like, this was no ordinary burglary." The officer said that the home had "been targetted." The man, whose name Cherruault was unable to recall, assured him "not to worry, your lives were not in danger," according to the sworn statement. The official police report of the Cherruault break-in, which has been reviewed by EIR, confirmed that "The computer equipment stolen contained a huge library of royal photographs and appears to have been the main target for the perpetrators."

Another Thread of the Cover-Up

One of the other still-unresolved issues in the Alma crash probe, three years after the fact, revolves around the medical evidence. Al-Fayed has been battling in court in Britain for the right to participate in the official inquest into the death of Princess Diana, arguing that since both Diana and Dodi died in the crash, therefore he should be entitled to officially participate in both inquests. The courts have preliminarily ruled that he has the right to contest the Royal Coroner's rejection of his participation in the Diana inquest, which will only occur after the French appellate process has been completed, sometime later this year. However, in April of this year, the attorneys representing Al-Fayed received a copy of a suppressed memorandum, prepared by Professors Dominique Lecomte and Andre Lienhart, two French forensic pathologists working for Judge Stephan, suggesting that British authorities, including the Royal Coroner, Dr. Burton, had interceded to conceal some aspects of the official British autopsy. The two French doctors were in London on June 23, 1998, where they met with British coroners Drs. Burton and Burgess, forensic pathologist Dr. Chapman, and Scotland Yard Superintendant Jeffrey Rees. They were given copies of the English autopsy report on Princess Diana, but, according to their contemporaneous notes on the meeting, were told that the document was provided for their "private and personal use," and that it should not be included in the formal file of Judge Stephan. Any material in that official investigative file was automatically made available to attorneys representing all the interested parties in the French probe, including Al-Fayed's attorneys. This two-and-a-half year suppression of the Lecomte-Lienhart memorandum has once again raised serious questions about the legitimacy of the "official" autopsy of the Princess of Wales, including questions that arose at the time of her death, as to whether she was pregnant. The mayhem surrounding the deaths of Diana and Dodi, and now Andanson, raises questions about the circumstances in Paris on that night in late August 1997--questions that the House of Windsor in general, and Prince Philip in particular, have long sought to suppress. The time may be fast approaching that the well-orchestrated three-year cover-up is about to blow apart, and at least part of the truth about the death of the "People's Princess" see the light of day. 

And that is something that the Windsors and the mandarins of MI6 may not be able to survive.

New `Diana Wars' in Britain
Put Focus on LaRouche

by Jeffrey Steinberg

On June 4, the London Daily Telegraph, the flagship publication of the British monarchy and the Club of the Isles' Hollinger Corp., published a crass slander against Lyndon LaRouche, headlined "U.S. Cult Is Source of Theories." The article charged that LaRouche, EIR, and the New Federalist newspaper were all behind a "Diana conspiracy industry," and that LaRouche, in league with London-based billionaire Mohamed Al Fayed, was "accusing the Queen of ordering the assassination of Diana, Princess of Wales." Apart from the fact that the article was pure fiction, there were two significant things about the story--which accompanied a much longer article that trashed a British Independent Television (ITV) documentary, entitled "Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash," which had aired the previous night, and which had been followed by a live televised debate on the Princess's death: First, the Daily Telegraph smear was authored by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, an avowed British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) stringer, who spent from late 1992 through the spring of 1997 in Washington, D.C. orchestrating a similar slander campaign against President Bill Clinton. Allowing Evans-Pritchard's by-line to appear on the "icebox" slander of LaRouche was a blunder of strategic significance, which underscored the truth behind LaRouche's charge that all of President Clinton's enemies, including in the upper echelons of the British oligarchy, are also enemies of LaRouche. The blunder also underscored the fact that there is a "battle royal" under way within the British ruling class, which goes far beyond the issue of the death of Princess Diana. The battle touches on matters of global geopolitics, and how the British oligarchy intends to survive the worst, systemic financial breakdown crisis in modern history. The "Torygraph" slander also marked a decisive break in the Club of the Isles' policy of keeping LaRouche's name out of print in Britain. It has been long-recognized by the City of London-centered financier oligarchical grouping headed by the Royal Consort, Prince Philip, that LaRouche and EIR have been a powerful factor in exposing their dirty machinations worldwide, and have also been an important contributing factor in an eruption of political warfare against the Windsors, even from among the British elites. The LaRouche role in the Windsors' troubles came to the surface in 1994, when EIR published "The Coming Fall of the House of Windsor," a Special Report exposing the role of Prince Philip and his World Wildlife Fund (WWF, now the World Wide Fund for Nature), in triggering the worst genocide in modern history in the Great Lakes region of Africa. Even as EIR's exposés of the Windsors circulated throughout the world diplomatic community and among factions of the British establishment, with rare exceptions, the name "LaRouche" was banned from the British press.[FIGURE 1] All that changed, beginning with the June 4 Evans-Pritchard diatribe. The article not only accused LaRouche and EIR of heading the "conspiracy industry," and of accusing "the Queen of being the world's foremost drug dealer." But also, it linked LaRouche to Mohamed Al Fayed, Harrods department store owner and the father of the late Dodi Fayed, in a campaign, Evans-Pritchard wrote, "aimed at discrediting Tiny Rowland, Mr. Al Fayed's longtime business rival, ... according to Francesca Pollard, a former operative for the Fayed security machine." As EIR revealed in its 1993 unauthorized biography of Rowland, Pollard, whose family was robbed of its fortune by Rowland, was threatened and then paid off by Rowland, to be a source of trash against Al Fayed. Following the Aug. 31, 1997 car crash in Paris that claimed the life of Princess Diana, Dodi Fayed, and their driver, Henri Paul, Rowland was deployed by the British royal family to lead a slander and harassment campaign aimed at silencing Mohamed Al Fayed, who has stated publicly that he is "99.9% certain" that Diana and Dodi were the victims of a murder plot. 

Battle of the Documentaries

The trigger for the slanders against LaRouche was the airing of the ITV documentary on the evening of June 3, followed by a live TV debate, which featured this author. The ITV documentary provided dramatic new evidence supporting the case that Diana and Dodi were murdered (see "New Holes in Cover-Up of Diana Murder Plot," EIR, June 12, 1998), and highlighted several investigative leads that were first published in EIR, including the possibility that driver Paul was blinded by an anti-personnel laser. During the live TV round-table debate, this author discussed Princess Diana's decade-long war with the House of Windsor, including the impact of her November 1995 BBC Panorama interview, in which she charged that her estranged husband, Prince Charles, was unfit to be King; and, the reaction of the establishment to her actions, which amounted to a collective shriek, "Off with her head!" Rowland's personal involvement in the campaign to cover up the truth about the Paris crash, and to destroy Mohamed Al Fayed, was also aired, much to the chagrin of the producer and host of a Channel 4 "Dispatches" documentary on the Diana death that aired the following night. Channel 4 tried to dismiss as fantasy every piece of evidence refuting the "drunk driver" theory.[FIGURE 2] The Channel 4 "Dispatches" program included a slander of this author and EIR that was even more explicit on the question of Prince Philip. Although this author was interviewed on camera for more than two hours by Channel 4 host Martyn Gregory, less than one minute of that interview was shown on the hour-long "Dispatches" diatribe. And, that brief segment waxed hysterical about EIR's refusal to "rule out" the possibility that Prince Philip ordered the murder of Diana and Dodi. Indeed, British press accounts of the relationship between Prince Philip and Lady Diana, particularly during the brief period of her relationship with Dodi Fayed, revealed that the Royal Consort was in a constant blind rage over Diana's public disdain for the Windsors, and particularly her implicit challenge to their legitimacy on the British throne. Gregory was given several pages in the Sunday Telegraph on June 7, to continue denouncing LaRouche, EIR, and Al Fayed. In an article regurgitating the "Dispatches" disinformation, Gregory wrote: "The numerous hares Mohamed Fayed has set running in the colours of sundry conspiracy theories are typified by Geoffrey [sic] Steinberg, chief reporter of Executive Intelligence Review, a small-circulation American magazine that specializes in conspiracy theories. He was yet another guest on the side of the motley crew supporting ITV's Wednesday night programme. "This is the man who told Dispatches he `could not rule out the possibility' that Prince Philip was involved in the `murder of Diana.' We decided not to take Steinberg seriously at all." 
   Defending `Mr. Big'
Not so for MI5, another British intelligence agency. On June 10, Francis Wheen, a writer for MI5's favorite leak sheet, the political satire magazine Private Eye, penned another anti-LaRouche diatribe, in the London Guardian. Wheen, who had published smears against LaRouche in 1996, fixated on EIR's targetting of Prince Philip, whom Wheen affectionately referred to as "Mr. Big." "Many weird characters enjoyed their 15 minutes of fame during last week's flurry of TV programmes about Princess Diana," Wheen began, "but none was weirder than Jeffrey Steinberg, who appeared on Wednesday night's `studio debate' and again on Channel 4's Dispatches the next evening. There was, he admitted, `no smoking-gun proof' that Prince Philip ordered British intelligence to assassinate the Princess; nevertheless, `I can't rule it out in all honesty.' " Wheen complained, "So who is he? For some reason, viewers were not informed that the grand-sounding Executive Intelligence Review is in fact the weekly propaganda magazine of Lyndon H. LaRouche." Wheen almost got it right, when he noted, "Executive Intelligence Review has supported Al Fayed in his vendetta against Tiny Rowland and Lonrho; and when Michael Howard refused Al Fayed's application for British citizenship, LaRouche published a defamatory article about the family connection between Howard and Harold Landy, the former chairman of a Lonrho subsidiary." Wheen then digressed into the ID-format slander that was perfected by the mid-1980s dirty tricks slander salon, run by Wall Street Anglophile spook banker John Train, as part of the "Get LaRouche" task force of the U.S. Justice Department and private agencies that framed up and railroaded LaRouche to prison. Wheen recited the litany of smears: LaRouche says "the Queen runs an international cocaine smuggling cartel," that "Henry Kissinger is a communist agent," and, interestingly, that "the Italian banker Roberto Calvi was murdered by the Duke of Kent." (Calvi was himself a member of the extended royal family.)
 
International terrorism

Wheen then touched on another sore spot of the House of Windsor and Club of the Isles: the British hand in sponsoring and harboring international terrorism. He tried to twist EIR's exposé of London's role in safe-housing dozens of major terrorist organizations, a fact the U.S. State Department and the CIA have acknowledged in written documents. "In recent years," Wheen wrote, "LaRouche and Steinberg have been pursuing another `unique' theory--that `international terrorism' is masterminded by none other than Lord [William] Rees-Mogg and the Daily Telegraph reporter Ambrose Evans-Pritchard.... LaRouche claims [that] Rees-Mogg and Evans-Pritchard are part of a `powerful London-centerd apparatus that declared war on the United States immediately after the inauguration of President Clinton.' Whitewater, Troopergate, Paula Jones, Monica Lewinsky--all these scandals can be traced back to our double-barreled desperadoes.... But Rees-Mogg and Evans-Pritchard are merely servants of the `powerful London-centered apparatus.' The Mr. Big whose orders they obey is Prince Philip.... The intention, according to LaRouche, is to discredit, and destabilise the U.S. until it is forced to become a British colony once again, thus taking the House of Windsor another giant stride on its road to world domination." Wheen continued, "Only one person in Britain was powerful enough to thwart the conspiracy--Princess Diana, who had `declared war' on the royal family in her Panorama interview. And so she had to be killed." Wheen ended on a curious, slightly ominous, note: "This alliance between Al Fayed and Lyndon LaRouche seems risky, to say the least. Why should a prominent public figure aid and abet such an unscrupulous fantasy-merchant? If LaRouche doesn't wish to sully his reputation, he must disown Al Fayed forthwith," Wheen wrote. A half-dozen other slanders followed the Guardian article, in the Scotsman, on BBC-4 Radio, and even in the Danish press. One factor that clearly got the royals' blood boiling was that, according to the major British TV rating service, 12.5 million Britons watched the ITV documentary, and most of them also watched the studio debate that followed the evening news. On June 4, German national television aired the entire ITV broadcast, and major German dailies published lengthy excerpts from the transcript. In contrast, fewer than 3 million British viewers watched the Channel 4 smear the following evening. And, a Mirror newspaper poll, published on June 7, suggested that an overwhelming majority of Britons are convinced that there was more to the death of Diana than a traffic accident. 

The Strategic Battle

As EIR has said from day one, the death of Princess Diana is the scandal that could hasten the fall of the House of Windsor. But, the future of the Club of the Isles oligarchy hangs in the balance today in a number of ways. The probe in Paris of Diana's death, if it turns up compelling evidence of a murder, or even of aggravated manslaughter caused by a paparazzi mob notorious for its links to British intelligence and the Crown apparatus, would certainly bring down both the Windsors and the current Socialist government in France, which also is deeply implicated in the crash and the cover-up. On other fronts, the British establishment is torn over how to deal with the onrush of the financial collapse. Prince Philip and his circle have no compunctions about throwing the world into decades of chaos and genocide, in order to retain oligarchical control. But other, less insane forces within the City of London financial elite are apparently asking, "What do we get out of such chaos and destruction?" and may be seeking a new political alliance, perhaps with the United States, and sane forces on the continent who are opposed to the suicidal Maastricht Treaty. Other issues that are causing divisions among the British elites include Britain's stance on the European Monetary Union, and the euro single curency. Furthermore, factions on the continent that share Prince Philip's impulse to play "chaos warfare," may be pressing for a new assault on the Asian currencies, including the Japanese yen, through the major continental banks and their offshore hedge funds, even though such a move at this moment would almost certainly trigger a global financial explosion with unpredictable consequences. Within the extended European oligarchy, which has, for decades, been under the boot of Prince Philip's Club of the Isles, there is intensive in-fighting and factional warfare, adding further to the crisis atmosphere spreading across Eurasia. The common point of agreement among the "chaos" factions within the British and continental oligarchies, is that the power of the United States, as the pillar of the nation-state system, must be destroyed in the immediate period ahead, lest LaRouche's ideas for a nation-state-centered New Bretton Woods solution to the present global mess, be adopted, along with LaRouche's vision for a Eurasian Land-Bridge plan of global economic reconstructed. 

New holes in cover-up of
Diana murder plot

Shortly after midnight, on Aug. 30-31, 1997, David Laurent, an off-duty senior French police official, was driving alone in his car on the right bank of the Seine River, heading toward the Place de l'Alma tunnel where, moments later, Diana Princess of Wales, her companion Dodi Fayed, and driver Henri Paul would die in a car crash. As he drove, Laurent was passed by a speeding white Fiat Uno, according to accounts he provided nine months ago to French Criminal Brigade police probing the Diana crash. As he approached the tunnel, Laurent noticed that the Fiat Uno that had sped by him, was now crawling along in the right traffic lane, almost at a standstill, just before the tunnel entrance. Although the behavior of the Fiat driver was a bit bizarre, Laurent drove on. It was, after all, Saturday night on the final weekend of the summer, and there were a lot of strange goings-on on the streets of Paris. Less than a moment later, however, Laurent heard a loud explosion from inside the tunnel, as he was driving a short distance ahead. It was not until the next morning that Laurent realized that the explosion he had heard from inside the tunnel was the crash that claimed the lives of Diana and her companions. And it was not until several weeks later that police forensic tests confirmed that the crash had been caused by a collision between the Mercedes 280-S carrying Diana, Fayed, Paul, and bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones, the sole survivor of the crash, and a Fiat Uno. Within hours of the crash, police at the scene had gathered up evidence--a side mirror and fragments of a tail light--suggesting that a two-car collision had occurred. A police sketch, drawn at the crash site, labeled a section of the tunnel the "collision zone." Several witnesses, interviewed during the first week after the crash, had described a small hatchback car, cutting in front of the Mercedes at the tunnel entrance, jamming its breaks inside the tunnel, fleeing the crash scene, and so on. But, until Laurent's critical piece of the story became public in early June, the role of the Fiat had remained ambiguous--despite the fact that the car and its driver have disappeared. Was the missing Fiat tragically in the wrong place at the wrong time, or was it critical to the most spectacular vehicular homicide in history? Laurent's description of the Fiat, speeding to a spot near the tunnel entrance, less than a minute ahead of Diana's car, which was under chase from several other cars and motorcycles, strongly suggests the latter possibility. For reasons yet unexplained, Laurent's crucial eyewitness account was withheld from the chief investigating magistrate, Hervé Stephan, for months. .

Tampering with evidence

This is not the first time that the French police in charge of the investigation have tampered with evidence. Within hours of the crash, French police had told reporters that the Mercedes carrying Diana had been travelling at speeds of more than 120 miles per hour. How did they know? They told reporters that the speedometer of the mangled Mercedes had been frozen at more than 120 mph. EIR investigators determined that the French "leak" had to be a lie. Daimler Benz safety experts had told EIR reporters that, in any crash, the speedometer immediately goes back to zero. Two weeks later, the French police "corrected" the error; but this time, the media scarcely reported the correction. Similarly, French police had lied to reporters that Diana had been pinned in the rear compartment of the Mercedes, and saying that this was why it took so long to get her into an ambulance and to a hospital. Photographic evidence and eyewitness accounts later proved that it, too, was a premeditated lie by the French police. In the case of the Laurent testimony, sources tell EIR that the police have claimed that they have withheld certain vital evidence from Magistrate Stephan, to avoid the information falling into the hands of the attorneys for the paparazzi. The police allegedly claimed that their investigation "would be jeopardized" if the paparazzi were to learn crucial details. The Laurent revelation, which was leaked to the London Daily Mirror on June 4 by a well-placed French police source, was not the only new piece of evidence to emerge in early June. On June 3, the British independent television network ITV aired a one-hour investigative report, "Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash," that seriously discredits French police claims that driver Henri Paul was drunk at the time of the crash. 

Carbon monoxide found in Paul's blood

The assertion that Paul was drunk and high on two prescription drugs is pivotal to the ongoing effort, by the French government and the British establishment, to cast the crash as nothing more than a case of reckless, drunk driving. The claim that Paul had blood alcohol levels three times the legal limit at the time of the crash, was based solely on tests conducted by French coroners within hours of the crash. Independent forensic experts, including Dr. Peter Vanesis of the University of Glasgow, who reviewed the autopsy report, had harsh criticisms of the post mortem on numerous technical grounds. The ITV report revealed that the forensic tests also showed a near-lethal level of carbon monoxide as well. EIR has independently learned that it was a separate toxicological test on Paul's blood sample, that revealed a carbon monoxide level of more than 30% at the time of the crash. Yet, Dodi Fayed had no carbon monoxide in his blood. Is it possible that Paul could have had high levels of alcohol, traces of two prescription drugs, and toxic levels of carbon monoxide in his blood at the moment of the crash, and yet Fayed had no carbon monoxide present? Not if the carbon monoxide was inside the passenger cabin of the Mercedes. Furthermore, if Paul had been somehow poisoned with carbon monoxide sometime prior to getting behind the wheel of the Mercedes, experts interviewed by ITV say he would have shown obvious signs, such as dizziness, loss of balance, loss of depth perception, and an unbearable, throbbing pain in his temple. Security camera video footage of Paul, taken in the lobby of the Ritz Hotel between 9 p.m. and midnight, and aired in the ITV documentary, clearly showed that Paul had none of the tell-tale signs of being drunk or suffering from the effects of carbon monoxide. In a live television interview, aired one hour after the ITV broadcast, the documentary's host, Nicholas Owen, stated that he believed that the blood sample used in the post mortem was probably not taken from Paul. There were a dozen other corpses in the Paris city morgue at the time that Paul was brought in. This startling conclusion by Owen, adds further weight to EIR's charge that the French police--as distinct from chief investigating Magistrate Stephan--have been running a vicious cover-up of the events surrounding the crash. The ITV documentary also cited several eyewitness accounts that a powerful burst of light inside the tunnel, seconds before the crash, may have blinded Paul. Owen showed a commercially produced anti-personnel laser, that he purchased in a Paris shop for $300, to buttress the possibility that such a device was used in the vehicular attack. EIR Counterintelligence Director Jeffrey Steinberg appeared along with Owen and a half-dozen other investigators and expert analysts on the nationally televised interview show. Details of that broadcast and the vortex of media controversy, sparked by the ITV show and a second documentary, aired on June 4 on Channel Four TV in Britain, will appear in a forthcoming EIR 

(see also, the 
Editorial in this issue).
In a move that promises to raise even more questions about what happened in the Paris tunnel on Aug. 31, 1997, Magistrate Stephan convened an extraordinary group interrogation, or "confrontation," on June 5, at the Justice Ministry in Paris. Mohamed Al Fayed, Dodi's father and a civil party to the case, was invited to participate, as were a dozen eyewitnesses to the crash. The nine paparazzi who stand to be prosecuted for manslaughter and interference in the rescue effort, were also interrogated by Stephan. Details of what took place are not yet available.

EIR Reveals How Diana Murder Cover-up Has Turned Deadly

June 30, 2000 (EIRNS)--The July 7, 2000 issue ofExecutive 
Intelligence Review
 features a detailed report on the mysterious death of French paparazzo James Andanson, one of the pivotal figures in the Aug. 31, 1997 fatal car crash in Paris, that claimed the lives of Princess Diana, Dodi Fayed, and Henri Paul. Andanson's body was found in a desolate forest in the south of France, burned beyond recognition, on May 5, 2000.

A week after his bizarre death, which French authorities have attempted to label a "suicide," three armed, masked men broke into the Paris offices of the Sipa Agency, the photography agency where Andanson was working at the time of his death, and stole computer disks, laptops, and cameras. The three men were believed to be agents of the French secret service, hunting for possibly incriminating photographs of the crash site that Andanson may have been hiding.

The EIR story details the fact that Andanson, who owned a white Fiat Uno at the time of the 1997 crash, was a prime suspect in the Diana and Dodi wrongful deaths, yet French investigators accepted his alibi that he was not in Paris at the time of the crash. Tests of the paint and bumper scratches on his Fiat matched those on the side of the Mercedes carrying Diana and Dodi, according to forensic reports contained in the files of chief investigating magistrate, Herve Stephan. EIR also uncovered other break-ins and surpression of crucial evidence by both British and French intelligence services

Nearly three years after the fatal crash, the true circumstances are still being covered up, and the EIRstory breaks new ground in exposing that cover-up. This story is "must" reading for anyone who has been attempting to get to the bottom of the Diana-Dodi deaths. As one specialist told EIR, "The death of Andanson may very well signal a new, deadly turn in the cover-up of the death of Princess Diana. It is reminiscent of the pile of corpses that littered the landscape following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, when scores of individuals with knowledge about the President's
Diana, cause of death: ambulance ride which took one hour to travel 6 kilometers, 4 miles, to hospital. Why has no one focused on this platform of inquiry?
  1. Assuming driver, Henri Paul, was at fault due to intoxication, accept the reality that Princess Diana was not dead after the accident. She was very much alive and talking.
  2. The hospital to which she was taken, Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital, was 4 miles (6 kilometers) from the accident, occurring after midnight on a holiday weekend, with many away and the city streets quiet.
  3. Accept the reality that there has been no focus by the media on the at minimum, one hour, ambulance ride to travel 4 miles.
  4. Accept the reality that the time she slipped into the throes of death was during the one hour plus ambulance ride to the hospital.
  5. Le Parisien and Reuters reported that during the ambulance trip, the ambulance stopped to give her a massive injection of adrenaline.
  6. Le Parisien and Reuters further reported that the Interior Minister, Jean-Pierre Chevenement, and the police chief for Paris, France, Phillippe Massoni, two of the most powerful figures in the land, were mystified about the whereabouts of the ambulance due to its failure to timely reach the hospital.
  7. Assuming that ambulances in Paris, France in 1997 have radios or phones, answer why two men, among the most powerful in France, couldn't pick up a telephone and get an answer to the mystery.
  8. Further, consider whether the ambulance was sent without a police escort, and, if so, why.
  9. Subsequently the hospital asserted Diana received no injection of adrenaline during the ambulance ride. Was she treated at the hospital, upon her arrival, without full knowledge of what transpired during the ambulance ride? What did transpire? At the hospital was she (again) injected with adrenaline? Who was on the ambulance? What happened during an inordinate one hour trip with a VIP on board?
  10. Why isn't the media actively and aggressively pursuing this important matter? If a parent found out it took one hour for an ambulance with his or her child to travel four miles after midnight to a hospital, would the parent be justified in being quite angry and entitled to know what happened. If that child was Prince William, would the focus of the inquiry be different than it apparently is with Diana? Would the English newspapers, and others throughout the world, declare: 'One Hour to Get to the Hospital!'
CONCLUSION: Based on the above, one can fairly assert that the death of Princess Diana may have its nexus more to the ambulance ride and the treatment during that ride than to the accident itself. With billions of people throughout the planet interested in her death and the cause thereof, it is a deep mystery of why the focus of investigators and media circumvent this critical area of inquiry, which paradoxically seemed to be a mystery to the French Interior Minister and the Police Chief of Paris as well. Our mystery ties in as to why a VIP may have been traveling without a police escort in an ambulance taking, without acceptable explanation, one hour to get to a hospital. The answers have been to transport the injured Diana safely and to "avoid bumps." In that case, it seems every other ambulance throughout the world operates on a different basis, in recognizing a need to get an injured person quickly to a hospital; here, where a team of doctors, awaiting Diana's arrival, may have saved her. To our minds, and the minds of any reasonable man or woman, the one hour trip is inexcusable and carries compelling questions which demand detailed answers.

US Spy Tapes Reveal Diana Was Pregnant
    by GORDON THOMAS
EXPLOSIVE tapes on the secret life of Princess Diana will prove that she was pregnant and intended to marry Dodi Al Fayed, it was claimed last night.

American secret agents regularly monitored Diana's conversations and collated 1,000 secret documents using its "spy in the sky", the National Security Agency.

They were obtained by its Echelon satellite surveillance system and contain highly sensitive material including her marriage plans, her views on Prince Philip, who was known to be highly critical of her, and new details of her love affair with James Hewitt. Now, lawyers acting for Mohamed Al Fayed are trying to obtain the tapes through America's Freedom of Information Act.

They hope to present the evidence at Diana's inquest, which is expected to take place next year.

The covert monitoring was controlled from the ultra-secret NSA base at Menwith Hill in the north of England during the last weeks of Diana's affair with Dodi.

A spokesman for Dodi's father, Mohamed Al Fayed, the millionaire owner of Harrods, said: "Mr Al Fayed believes that those intercepts will reveal conversations in which Princess Diana discussed her engagement to Dodi and her pregnancy.

Diana - was it an accident or was she killed?

Repose en paix Henri
Tes amis ne sont dupes

"Rest in peace, Henri, your friends have not been fooled" -- words on floral tribute at the funeral of Henri Paul (English trans)

"One day I'm going to go up in a helicopter and not come back down" -- Princess Diana

The conspiracy theorists have been in overdrive. I make make no apology for adding to their output. I have a special reason for doing so - my theories pre-date the death of Princess Diana. About two years before her death a thought came into my mind that Diana would be killed. This would be no assassin's bullet as JFK or John Lennon, but an accident. I had in mind a skiing accident or a tragedy at sea. The thought must have lodged deep in my mind as it troubled me for weeks, then gradually faded away. Looking back I now see I must have had a premonition.

There can be only two reasons for her death, an accident or she was deliberately killed.

An accident can not be ruled out. Accidents happen to the best of us. Even if there was a plot to kill Diana, it could have been pre-empted by an accident.

If it was an accident, it still deserves explanation as all accidents have causes. I am not familiar with the road tunnel alongside the Seine, but I have to ask myself how did the driver lose control? Is there a sharp bend, did he hit something or skid, did the car have a mechanical fault (if so why?), was the driver drunk or in some way intoxicated? These questions can be answered by simple examination and investigation. Dodi's bodyguard is the key to many. The driver being drunk seems at odds with his reputation.

Accident or not, we may never know, but the whole affair has a distinctly uneasy and messy feel to it.

Mid-November 1997, two British Sunday tabloid newspapers published a survey that showed that a very high proportion of those surveyed felt the death of Diana was no accident and that she had been killed to silence her. The methodology used left much to be desired, but with a figure of 98% the results could not be easily dismissed and if nothing else showed the general feeling of disquiet and unease over the death of Princess Diana.

If not an accident, then part of a conspiracy, if so by whom, and for what reason?

Some of this I can answer by going back two years. My initial thoughts on this must have had a very strong impact as they haunted me for weeks and weeks, only very slowly did they fade away. I almost contacted Diana, but what could either of us have done?

The wildest of ideas can have their basis in reality. This is how creative thought occurs and scientific advances are made. A wild thought occurs, logic is used to build a bridge back to reality. If the bridge can be built, then we explore where it has taken us.

This I did, but first the premonition. Diana was to be killed, it wasn't to be an obvious murder but faked to look like an accident. How, what, or when I did not know? I constructed possible scenarios of a swimming or boating accident or possibly an accident on the ski slopes.

But why? Was there a rationale behind these thoughts?

Unfortunately yes. Diana was seen as a loose canon, a member of the establishment, but outside of the establishment, a danger to all concerned. Diana in her own words referred to her time as a member of the Royal Family as the "dark ages".

Diana herself reinforced and confirmed my own fears. In her now infamous interview, where she asked to be the Queen of Peoples Hearts, she talked of her fears and paranoia, that her phones were tapped and 'they' were out to get her. You don't have to be paranoid for them to be out to get you, but it helps.

Some years earlier when Andrew Morton's book Diana - Her True Story hit the streets it was met with universal derision and condemnation. Andrew Morton himself was viciously attacked. What was his crime? His crime was to let out the truth. Morton let it be known that his sources were close to the Princess, strong hints were dropped that the Princess approved. The Palace launched a search for the 'mole' who had briefed Morton, Morton had his office burgled, files rifled and a camera stolen. As events unfurled, especially Diana's infamous interview, it became clear that Morton was revealing the truth. The bombshell had yet to be dropped. A few weeks after her death, Morton revealed that the source for his book had been none other than Diana herself, she had supplied him with tapes and corrected the original manuscript.

Morton dropped his bombshell as he launched an updated version of his book. Once again the establishment went into overdrive to condemn Morton. In the US death threats were issued. Morton's timing may have been tacky, motivated more by greed than setting straight the public record, but if anyone had a right to publish a book on Diana it was Morton. This attempt at gagging is reminiscent of the secrecy surrounding the Duke of Windsor, all material on which is embargoed for 100 years.

Following her estrangement from Charles and the Royal Family, Diana was clearly seen as a danger. Would she spill the beans and cause permanent damage, striking at the very heart of the British Establishment. From now on it was Diana who was calling the shots, and she continued to do so right up to her death. She demanded, and got a multi-million pound divorce settlement. Things began to settle down.

Several months before her death, Diana seemed to grow in stature. It was as though she fully realised for the first time the power she had. Who but Diana could crook her finger and have Henry Kissinger at her side one day, and be seen comforting Aids victims or a woman in Bosnia on another. Her arms around Elton John at the funeral of Gianni Versace will be fixed forever in the world's psyche.

The President of the USA only thinks he has power, it was Diana who held the real power. The public reaction to her death showed to what degree her influence had spread across the world.

Diana in Angola Several months before her death Diana became involved in the campaign to ban landmines. Hilary Clinton had been pushing hard, but got nowhere. Maybe for the very first time realising the extent of her powers Diana offered to help. Visits to Angola, and Bosnia, a well publicised gala in the States. Governments around the world fell into line, Clinton who had steadfastly opposed a ban had no choice but in bad grace to climb aboard the bandwagon before it left without him.

In a press interview following her Angola trip, Diana expressed shock at what she found, and that she had found new fulfilment as a champion of the fight to ban landmines, a crusade she hoped to take to trouble spots around the globe. Her response to critics was to brush their comments aside as 'merely a distraction' and vow not to change course.

A few days before her death Diana was reported by a French journalist (Le Monde) as regarding the position of the previous Conservative government as hopeless. These remarks were immediately retracted by Diana's staff at Kensington Place, the journalist steadfastly clung to her report. Why should the remarks be withdrawn? If Diana believed in her campaign, which clearly she did, then her remarks would have only been an honest assessment, if anything a gross understatement. To withdraw those remarks, which were seen as correct, would only discredit herself and her position.

Politicians who had been baying for her blood, grew ever more strident. What was this woman doing meddling in politics, why didn't she stick to old ladies and little children.

Two weeks before her death the pictures of Dodi al-Fayed and Diana started to appear. A thought went through my mind 'Oh no, she has just signed her own death warrant'. Two weeks later and the rest was history, Diana lay dead in Paris.

Mohamed al-Fayed, the father of Dodi, is the arch-villain of the British Establishment. For years he had been painted in the British media as an evil, cunning, corrupt Egyptian. Here was the man who with relative ease had bribed Members of Parliament and brought down the Conservative Government. The hatred was reported as mutual. Here was a man who had befriended Diana, another person outside of the establishment. Would they pool their resources, was there no depth to which this man would not go? Worse was to come. Looking to the future, would the man be present at the coronation of a future King as his step-grandfather? A future King, head of the Christian Church, defender of the faith, to have a Moslem as a half-brother? Would Diana follow her close friend's example, who had recently married a Pakistani cricketer, and turn into a Moslem? The establishment's worst nightmares were about to come true.

The source of the al-Fayed family wealth has oft been questioned and never satisfactorily answered. This was brought to a head by the bitter battle for control and ownership of Harrods. Mohamed al-Fayed has family links, through his ex-wife, to Adnan Khashoggi, a Middle East arms dealer and possible CIA asset.

This image of Mohamed al-Fayed portrayed in the British press was not that seen by the people who queued for many hours to sign the books of condolence, to them he was a man whose staff brought them food and drink whilst they patiently waited, a man whose son had brought their princess some happiness in her last days on earth, a man who had lost a much loved son, a man who their hearts and sympathy stretched out to almost as much as it did to their beloved princess.

Even the press backed off for a while, expressing their rather guarded sympathy for a man who had just lost his son. The truce was short lived however, no sooner was Diana buried than the dirt on al-Fayed started to reappear in the press.

Yes, it could have a been a very clever publicity stunt, to bring refreshments out, but if it was why did no-one else do it?

If it was murder, who did it, who hatched the plot?

This is not too difficult to answer. A shadowy, dark core at the centre of the establishment, accountable to no one and totally out of control.

Eisenhower was the first to speak of a military-industrial complex out of control. During the talks to defuse the Cuban missile crisis, Kruschev confessed of military forces outside of his control, JFK admitted of the same problem. Kruschev was removed as too soft, JFK assassinated and replaced by the corrupt Johnson who stepped up the Vietnam war. Nixon entered into detente with China and wound down the Vietnam War, shortly afterwards, at the height of his popularity he was brought down by Watergate.

The intelligence services destabilised, then brought down the Wilson Labour Government.

The intelligent services in the UK have been repeatedly exposed as incompetent and out of control. Unlike the US there have been no public enquiries into their activities, there is no public accountability and it is only in recent years that official acknowledgement has been given of their very existence.

Only weeks before the death of Diana, David Shayler, an agent of MI5, the UK internal security service, went public on the incompetence of MI5 and how it had been monitoring important public figures including Jack Straw, Home Secretary (the man nominally in charge of MI5) and Ted Heath, the former Prime Minister. The agent was not leaking any secure information or putting operations at risk, he was simply exposing malpractice and calling from within for greater accountability. To his shame, Jack Straw instead of applauding the man had him silenced.

Silencing Shayler did not shut up the affair. A second MI5 agent, his girlfriend Annie Machon confirmed his story. Both were now on the run in Europe, hiding from the wrath of MI5. Some weeks later, exactly two weeks after the funeral of Diana, Annie Machon returned to England to be arrested at Gatwick airport. The manner of her arrest, was described in The Mail on Sunday (21 September 1997), who had published the initial revelations, as completely over the top, more fitting for a major terrorist or drugs trafficker than someone who had highlighted the failings and shortcomings of the British intelligence services.

It does not take six burly men to arrest one young female of slender build who has returned to the country of her own volition, not that is unless the intention is to intimidate. The frightening scene of the arrest brought back echoes of KGB thugs intimidating dissidents, as did the smashing of the flat Annie Machon shared with David Shayler. Three weeks before her arrest, the security forces used the cover of a search warrant to smash up the flat that Annie Machon shared with David Shayler. If actions speak louder than words then someone was trying to put across a very strong message.

Sunday 2 November 1997, The Mail on Sunday published the most damning revelations yet from ex-MI5 agent David Shayler on the level of incompetence at MI5. As a consequence of internal bungling MI5 failed to prevent the terrorist bombing of the Israeli Embassy in London, and failed to even notify Mossad of what they knew. There was then a crude attempt at a cover up.

Monday 3 November 1997, ex-MI6 agent Richard Tomlinson appeared before Bow Street magistrates' court charged with offences under the Official Secrets Act. He was denied bail and remanded into custody for a week. He had been arrested at his home a couple of days before by Special Branch (the police wing of the Intelligence Services) and subjected to two days of interrogation at Charing Cross high security police station. His 'crime' was to attempt to publish a book on MI6. An injunction had prevented publication within the UK, rumours were circulating that he was about to publish in Australia. His mistake was not to have followed the the example of Peter Wright, ex-MI5 agent and author of Spycatcher published a decade earlier, and decamped to Australia.

A week later, 9 November 1997, The Sunday Times described how, writing from his prison cell in Brixton, Richard Tomlinson saw himself as a political prisoner and the extraordinary lengths MI6 had gone to to hunt him down. And how Tomlinson relished the opportunity from open court to expose the hypocrisy, dishonesty and mismanagement at MI6.

On Thursday 18 December 1997, Tomlinson was sentenced at the Old Bailey to 12 months imprisonment. In passing sentence, the judge said he was doing so 'in the national interest'.

Following his release from prison, Tomlinson was constantly harassed by the intelligence services, and eventually fled the country, even though this was a breach of his parole conditions. He now resides in Geneva. On fleeing the country Tomlinson has made a number of allegations about MI6, one of these includes a plot to assassinate President Milosevic of Yugoslavia that bears an uncanny resemblance to the death of Princess Diana.

The security services fear Internet. Numerous scare stories are planted in the media, repeated attempts are made to ban the use of encryption. Internet is the one free media, outside of government control, outside of unwarranted interference.

On the day following Diana's funeral The Independent on Sunday reported the case of a man who had been stitched up by MI6 (the UK foreign intelligence agency).

Several demonstrators broke into and occupied properties belonging to British Aerospace. The police brought in, before they saw there own lawyers, a lawyer working for BAe who interviewed the demonstrators. They had requested their own lawyers, as was their right, and been denied that right. The police allegedly released the names and addresses of the protesters to BAe. The following morning, so fast did it happen, protesters found temporary injunctions served on them by BAe at their home addresses. These were followed by injunctions that imposed a life time ban on setting foot on any named BAe property (a list several pages long) or being in the vicinity of. The cost of this action by BAe was estimated by one of the lawyers acting for the defenders at a million pounds.

A week after the funeral, The Sunday Telegraph reported the intense lobbying the Pentagon were applying to Clinton not to agree to a ban on landmines. Their worst fears were that Clinton would even agree to the dropping of the US spoiler clause that would allow exemptions where 'national interests' were at stake.

I give these examples as illustrations, I have many more examples at my fingertips.

Diana cartoon Diana had successfully campaigned against landmines. What next, a ban on arms to Indonesia, Turkey, a visit with Dodi to Palestinian Camps? Alarm bells were ringing very loudly.

Coincidental with the death of Diana, an Arms Fair was taking place in Farnborough - a town known the world over as the site of the Farnborough International Airshow. To this Arms Fair some of the world's most repressive regimes were honoured guests of the UK Government - Turkey, Indonesia. On the day her death was announced they made a point of carrying on, 'business as usual' was quoted one arms dealer. All week, whilst the world expressed its grief the Arms Fair continued. Meanwhile across the country, major events were cancelled as a mark of respect. Following the funeral, millions observed a minutes silence. In Farnborough, the silence was broken by an executive jet flying into Farnborough Airfield. The merchants of death were clearly determined to give two fingers to one who had dared campaign against them.

The response of the people of Farnborough to this shoddy behaviour was one of anger, revulsion and disgust. Letters published in the local press gave some idea of the anger that was felt.

End of September, beginning of October, Farnborough was scheduled to host COPEX - Covert Operations Exhibition. On display and sale would be instruments of torture. Once again the world's most repressive regimes were to be honoured guests.

Colonel Gadafy of Libya has asked the International Court of Justice in the Hague that when those responsible for the death of Diana be caught they be put on trial in Libya. The reason for what at first glance seems a strange request is that Dodi was a Libyan citizen and Gadafy's belief that both were assassinated by the British Intelligence Services. This belief has widespread acceptance in the Arab world, especially Egypt and Libya.

It is easy to see why. A few weeks after Diana's death, an assassination attempt was made in Jordan by two Mossad agents on a prominent Hamas leader. Initially this was reported as a scuffle with two Canadian tourists. The two 'Canadian tourists' were Mossad agents holding forged Canadian passports. The incident backfired badly on Israel. In order to recover their two agents they were forced to release the spiritual leader of Hamas and dozens of Hamas terrorists.

How did it happen?

In the early hours of Sunday, Stephen Jessel, BBC Paris correspondence was speaking live on the BBC World Service and he was puzzled. How, he almost mused to himself did the paparazzi know Diana was in Paris at the Ritz? It was not public knowledge and he as a respected BBC correspondence was not privy to that knowledge. Earlier in the day she and Dodi had been in Sardinia. Who tipped off the paparazzi? Were they all paparazzi, or had a paparazzi been lent on? Was the chase deliberate? Was it intended to force the car to crash, if not here, then some other time, some other place? Many of the paparazzi disappeared, who were they, can those who were found at the scene shed any light on this? Was the car tampered with?

The driver of the car was an anomaly. Why was he driving so fast? Was the car simply out of control, or was there more to it? The police report on the driver was clearly out of character with those who knew him. The security videos, and those who spoke with him and saw him before he departed on his fateful last journey, back those who speak highly of him. If in spite of all this, he was acting out of character, then why?

Down the right-hand side of the car was a scratch and paint marks, indicating a possible brush with another car. Parts of the rear-end of a Fiat Uno were found at the crash scene, this could indicate a brush with another car or simply that the filthy French do not clean up after an accident. There are rumours floating around Paris of eyewitnesses seeing another car rapidly disappearing from the scene. One eyewitness said he saw a small black car leaving the crash scene at very high speed in what he thought were suspicious circumstances.

The French have refused to release footage from security cameras along the route taken by the Mercedes, or to release footage from their own Ministry of Defence cameras (near the Paris Ritz).

On Wednesday 8 October 1997, the French police announced their intention to check more than 100,000 Fiat Unos, that had been registered in and around the Paris area. It was made known that they were looking for a white Fiat Uno. This clashed with earlier rumours that the paintwork was red, blue or black, indicating, if nothing else, the degree of confusion and disinformation surrounding the case. The police also let it be known, that from the wreckage, it seemed that the Mercedes had been in collision with a Fiat Uno moments before the crash.

An off-duty senior police office, reported being overtaken by a speeding white Fiat Uno, which then slowed and loitered at the tunnel entrance, seemingly waiting for the Mercedes. [The Mirror, Thursday 4 June 1998]

Early June 1998, despite intense efforts by the French police, the Fiat Uno has not been found. Speculation that it has been destroyed, or is now out of the country.

Several witnesses saw a motorcycle cut-up the Mercedes moments before the crash. They also saw a blinding flash, far more intense than a photographic flash. Speculation that this was an anti-personnel device used to disable the driver. [Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash, ITV, Wednesday, 3 June 1998]

Many more people and vehicles are known to have been in the tunnel than have so far given themselves up.

Laurence Pujol, ex-girlfriend of Henri Paul, who had lived with him for five years said he wasn't a heavy drinker. Alexander Wingfield, a bodyguard to Diana and Dodi, spent the two hours before the crash with Henri Paul and detected no sign of drink. He had also driven with Henri Paul in the back-up car from the airport and noted his driving as professional. A sample of the liver showed Henri Paul was not a regular drinker.

On Tuesday 9 September 1997 the results of the third test on the driver were published. All three tests had shown the driver to have consumed high quantities of alcohol. The third test also showed that he had been taking drugs. If the tests are correct then it raises more questions. Why was his behaviour so out of character, why did no one notice?

ITV documentary Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash (Wednesday, 3 June 1998), showed a high carbon monoxide content in Henri Paul's blood that did not correlate with his behaviour.

Henri Paul was at the Ritz two hours before the crash. Where was he between driving from the airport and his being recalled back to the Ritz? This vital gap in his movements, hours before the fatal crash, are still not accounted for.

The first duty of a bodyguard is to protect those in his care. Why did he not ensure the occupants of the car were wearing their seat belts? Moments before the fatal crash, Trevor Rees-Jones fastened his seat belt. Why? Trevor Rees-Jones failed to follow standard protection procedures.

Paul Burrell, Diana's personal butler, arrived in Paris within hours of her death to collect her belongings and arrange their return to London. Though in the company of a Foreign Office official he was kept waiting for 40 minutes. He then found that all Diana's personal effects had been gone through and dispatched back to London. By whom, on whose orders, why? Neither he nor the FO official were able to obtain satisfactory answers to these questions. Paul Burrell found the experience extremely upsetting and distressing.

These and many more questions need to be answered. Mohamed al-Fayed obviously felt something was wrong, why else did he bring in a top forensic scientist. For that he is to be applauded. I can only hope that he also has the foresight to bring in his own investigators and question all those involved. He needs to do this now whilst the evidence is fresh. Only Mohamed al-Fayed has the wealth to conduct such an investigation.

Though al-Fayed also has a vested interest. If the driver was incapacitated, then the Ritz Hotel (as employer) and ultimately al-Fayed (as owner) are culpable. He may have other interests that are not yet apparent.

But, even if the driver was pissed out of his brain and high as a kite, as the third autopsy would seem to indicate, this still does not let the paparazzi of the hook, as it was they who were chasing the car.

The Sunday Telegraph (14 September 1997) reported that the bodyguard, Trevor Rees-Jones was under round-the-clock police protection on the direct orders of the chief of criminal investigations in Paris, Martine Monteil and that Mohamed al-Fayed had hired a team of investigators headed by an unnamed senior ex-Scotland Yard officer.

Will the truth out?

A difficult one to answer - too many people have vested interests, few, if any, of of the major players have clean hands.

Mohamed al-Fayed (the Phoney Egyptian Pharaoh): repeatedly exposed in the British media as a vulgar, corrupt, conniving Egyptian. The DTI report on his business dealings: "The lies of Mohamed Fayed and his success in 'gagging' the press created new fact: that lies were the truth and that the truth was a lie." In their conclusion on the al-Fayed brothers: "dishonestly misrepresented their origins, their wealth, their business interests and their resources", and provided information which they "knew to be false". In an editorial, The Daily Telegraph noted that former Harrods employees had had their apartments bugged on the orders of Mohamed al-Fayed (Wednesday 15 October 1997). The previous day, Neil Hamilton, a former-MP and ex-government minister allegedly bribed by al-Fayed, claimed under oath in a submission to the House of Commons privileges and standards committee, that al-Fayed had personally ordered and overseen the forced entry of safe-deposit boxes stored at Harrods, he went on to say: "Mr Fayed has a well known record of deceit and invention ... an innate capacity for deceit". Scotland Yard confirmed that they were investigating the illegal entry of the safe-deposit boxes. The Observer, Sunday 30 November 1997, reported on the extensive monitoring by al-Fayed on the staff employed at Harrods. On Monday 2 March 1998, al-Fayed was arrested for allegedly stealing and tampering with items belonging to Tiny Rowland that had been stored in safe-deposit boxes at Harrods.

Michael Cole (mouthpiece for al-Fayed): allegedly sacked by the BBC for leaking the Queen's Speech (refuted by Cole), universally detested by the media. On Friday 20 February 1998, Cole dramatically quit his post, apparently even he could no longer stomach the garbage he was spouting (The Express, Saturday 21 February 1998).

Henri Paul (chauffeur, Ritz security): his friends are adamant that he is undergoing character assassination, a British newspaper reported him as a shady character, leading a seedy double life. ITV documentary Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash (Wednesday, 3 June 1998), claimed Henri Paul was a member of the French Intelligence Service. Richard Tomlinson (ex-MI6) has claimed that Henri Paul was working for MI6.

Trevor Rees-Jones (bodyguard): the only major player whose reputation has survived as remarkably clean, but his background as an ex-member of the Parachute Regiment does not enhance his standing, as anyone who has had the misfortune to live in the garrison town of Aldershot will testify, members of the Parachute Regiment are little more than thugs kitted-out in army uniform. On Saturday 28 February 1998, Trevor Rees-Jones issued a statement that following counselling sessions with a psychiatrist he was now able to recall much what of what had happened. The statement raised many questions - to what extent had information been planted in his mind, what undue influence had al-Fayed brought to bear now that Rees-Jones had returned to light duties, was Rees-Jones being paid for his story? On Monday 20 April 1998, Trevor Rees-Jones resigned from the service of al-Fayed, expressing a desire through his layers to 'move his life on'. Wednesday 23 September, Trevor Rees-Jones indicated his intention to sue the company that had hired the Mercedes to the Ritz.

Paul Handley-Greaves ('security expert'): known as a liar and a cheat. Was involved in an elaborate plot to discredit Vanity Fair, by claiming to be in possession of stolen security videos from Harrods.

James Hewitt (ex-lover, widely regarded as a shit): not an immediate player but his revelation in the ITV documentary Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash (Wednesday, 3 June 1998), that he was warned off his relationship with Diana as 'not conducive to his health', that his 'security could not be guaranteed' and that he could meet the same fate as Barry Mannakee (Diana's personal bodyguard, killed in a motorcycle accident, 1988) lends some credence to the possibility Diana's death may not have been an accident. [The Times, Wednesday 3 June 1998]

The Press: blood stained from their implied involvement in the death. Will do anything to shift the blame and focus of attention elsewhere.

The truth may never out. Mid-October 1997, John Burton, the British coroner charged with investigating and recording a verdict on the death of Diana, publicly expressed his concern and frustration at his inability to get at the truth. He cited the disinformation surrounding the case and referred to the conspiracy theories appearing on Internet.

Did they succeed?

First, before I answer, does it make a difference, if, as I posed at the beginning it was an accident, or as the autopsies on the driver indicate, driver error, propelled by the paparazzi? To this the answer is no, as the end objective is met, the Princess is taken out of the game and hands are clean.

To return to the posed question, did they succeed, the simple answer is no, and that has been answered by the millions who responded to her death.

Anyone who spent an evening in Kensington Palace Gardens could not but helped be moved by the spirit that was in the place.

The people want a memorial to Diana, they want more than a pile of stone, they want to see her work continue. As the Palace found to its cost, the public will not back down on this.

A quiet revolution appears to be taking place, thirty years on after the revolutionary mood of the '60s. Then is was a radical element wanting a better world, to be cast aside by the '70s and gruesome '80s, now it is the whole population. A velvet revolution appears to have gripped the psyche. Can it succeed? Maybe, in the '60s the radical youth were greeted by the hard old men who grew up on war and knew nothing else. Now, those radicals of the '60s hold positions of power, are people of influence, will they, can they, deliver what they once dreamed of, now that the public demands it?

Earl Spencer, in probably the most eloquent speech in history, pledged in a tribute to his sister to continue the work of Diana. He pledged to see that her sons would be brought up in the way she would have wished, that they would help to continue her work. It would be a very foolish person indeed who tries to oppose him.

Both Tony Blair and Hilary Clinton have sensed and grasped the public mood. Both have pledged to continue her work.

Outside Kensington Palace, I was struck by flowers from Iraqis mourning what for them was the loss of a beacon of humanity.

The work on landmines has become a foregone conclusion - a world ban. It is amazing who has jumped on the bandwagon following Diana's death. Robin Cook (UK Foreign Secretary) pushing hard for a ban as though it has been his lifelong ambition, if nothing else it has added some substance to his ethical foreign policy which until then noticeably lacking in substance. A general, in a letter to The Times, highlighted the lack of military utility of landmines and gave the campaign his whole-hearted backing. What next, a ban on arms to repressive regimes such as Turkey and Indonesia? This is a logical extension, and probably something Diana would have moved on to once she realised the full extent of her power for good.

For everyone, the world over, a light has gone out, but as the many candles burning in Kensington Palace Gardens has shown, there are many who are determined to keep that light burning.

As one, with Tony Blair and Hilary Clinton I am proud to be counted as one who will help to move her work forward for the poor, the sick, the disadvantaged, for all of humanity.

It is for others to light their own candles to banish the forces of darkness and show that they are finally defeated. The forces of darkness may have extinguished one flame, but a million stand its stead each burning with the same spirit and passion.

There were those who from a position of ignorance and bigotry chose to ridicule this account. History may yet prove them wrong. Within hours of the tragedy, conspiracy theories started to appear on the Web, within days serious questions were raised in Cairo, including the publication of a book. Once the initial shock had wore off, dark hints were made, then questions started to be asked, soon the possible presence of other vehicles became more than mere unsubstantiated rumour and speculation. On Saturday 14 February 1998, The Times raised the issue with the stark headline 'Diana: was it murder?'. The article was attributed to Thomas Sancton and Scott MacLeod, authors of Death of a Princess: An Investigation. Having posed the question, no clear cut answer was given other than to highlight, as has been done here, the many riddles and puzzling elements of her death.

Still more questions were raised in an ITV documentary Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash, broadcast Wednesday, 3 June 1998. The programme raised the possibility of Henri Paul being a member of the French Intelligence Service, serious flaws in his blood sample, and the presence of a motorcyclist who tried to cut-up the Mercedes moments before the crash and may have been the cause of a blinding flash deliberately aimed to disable the driver. In a follow-up studio discussion Bernard Ingham (former mouthpiece of Lady Thatcher) and Rupert Allison (self-styled intelligence expert) both demonstrated their ignorance and bigotry. David Shayler (ex-MI5 agent) was barred by government threats from participating in the studio discussion.

Diana 'foresaw death crash'

By Robert Jobson and Richard Holliday, Evening Standard 20.10.03

Princess Diana predicted her death in a car crash only months before the Paris tragedy which killed her.
The extraordinary revelation emerged today as a handwritten letter she gave her butler Paul Burrell was made public for the first time.
The letter says: “They’re planning ‘an accident’ in my car, brake failure and serious head injury in order to make the path clear for Charles to marry.”
In the letter Diana names who she believed was plotting to kill her. But for legal reasons the identity cannot be revealed.
The claims will reignite the conspiracy theories that have surrounded Diana since she died with her boyfriend Dodi Fayed in the Alma tunnel in Paris in August 1997.
The revelations are made in Mr Burrell’s new book, A Royal Duty, which is
being serialised in the Daily Mirror. It comes amid continuing controversy
about the failure to stage a full inquest in Britain into Diana’s death.
Although it has been six years since the tragedy, only in the last few months
has Royal Coroner Michael Burgess agreed to a full public investigation.
He was expected to name a date within days, but it has now emerged he will not
be drawn on a timescale.
Today’s revelations are certain to impact on the relationship of Charles
and Camilla Parker Bowles. They pose a setback for the couple just as they are
becoming increasingly accepted by the Queen, the public and the establishment and as a forthcoming marriage was being seen as a more realistic prospect.
Diana gave Mr Burrell the letter in October 1996 just 10 months before the
accident as “insurance” for the future.
He claims it has been part of “the burden I have carried since the Princess’s
death.” He adds: “Deciding what to do with it has been a source of much
soulsearching.”
But Mr Burrell, who is set to make millions from his book, is bound to be
accused of cashing in on Diana’s memory.
Last year he was cleared of stealing her personal possessions after the dramatic intervention of the Queen just before he was to give evidence.
Harrods owner Mohamed Fayed, father of Dodi, has always claimed his
son and Diana were killed in a Secret Service plot.
He has spent hundreds of thousands of pounds on a private investigation to try to prove his conspiracy theory.

Diana, Princess of Wales: Did MI6 Kill Her?

Princess's Diana Memorial in Hyde Park. Copyright © LondonNet Ltd 2006
Following Diana's sudden death in Paris, August 31, 1997 many doubts have surrounded the official story of the paparazzi chasing a drunk driver at speed toward an inevitable and tragic accident. Below you will find an examination of the evidence surrounding the number one conspiracy theory- MI6 killed Diana...

The Two Main Theories

a) One or more rogue "cells" in the British secret service construct and carry out a plot to kill Diana.
b) An official campaign by MI6 to assasinate Diana, sanctioned by elements of the establishment.

The Possible Motives

a) The rogue elements in MI5 (National security) or MI6 (International security) decide that Di is a threat to the throne, and therefore the stability of the state. They take her out.
b) With similar motives to the possible rogue elements, the official campaign is driven by a fear of Diana's possible to conversion to Islam (Dodi being a Muslim) and the implication on the Church and State were the two Princes, William and Harry, to follow their mother's lead.

The Evidence

Circumstantial it maybe, but put together is it capable of raising sufficient doubt that this was an accident?
Below are some of the questions and doubts that are raised by the investigation so far



- The rapid disposal of the bodies of Diana and Dodi. Diana
had no post mortem prior to burial in Althorp. Victims of sudden death require a post mortem by law in the UK.
- The missing white Fiat Uno: With such a large-scale investigation by French authorities could only secret agents have evaded the police's net around Paris? We know the car hit the Mercedes used by Di and Dodi, thanks to traceable paint marks on the Benz. Witnesses refer to the car lurching around the road at varying speeds as both it and the Merc entered the tunnel of death.
- Henri Paul, driver of the Limo. The mis-information surrounding this key figure is enormous. First he was said to be driving at up to 120 mph, recent reports by professional crash investigators suggest 60 mph, even less on impact.
Was he really drunk? It is accepted that he had two Ricard drinks at the Ritz, but no other evidence has emerged to support this claim, beyond questionable results from a blood test from his corpse. Why questionable? Because it is common for the alcohol level to rise in bodies after death regardless of consumption. The test also showed a very high level of carbon monoxide (20 per cent) in his blood. Experts say this would have incapacitated him before he set off on his fatal journey, and yet the hotel's video evidence shows him walking around and talking normally. An alcoholic? Well , as a pilot, he passed a rigorous health check two days before the accident. His liver showed no signs of abuse on post-mortem.
Then there is the question of the multiple bank accounts Paul held, with balances showing income far in excess of his 20 000 UKP salary as acting head of security at the Ritz. Some friends have suggested he was a long term "sleeper" agent for a secret service agency, almost certainly French intelligence.
- Trevor Rees Jones (Fayed bodyguard)- The only survivor. One time member of Her Majesty's armed forces, rumours suggest he may have been a "sleeper" agent for MI5 or MI6, particularly as the establishment were keen to keep tabs on Mohammed Al Fayed. Why was he the only person in the car to wear a safety-belt?
- Explosion, followed by Bang- Immediately after the crash news was broadcast, witnesses appeared on US TV saying that they heard an explosion or bang before they heard the car crash. Was this a gunshot, or a bomb?
- White Light- Other witnesses describe an extremely bright white light, much stronger than a photographer's flashbulb, illuminating the tunnel before the crash sounds. Powerful anti-personnel flash-guns are available to private citizens for as little as 250 UKP. The security forces have access to much stronger tools. All of which are capable of blinding a victim for several minutes - easily enough to cause a fatal crash. Crucially there would be no physical evidence left for investigators.
- James Hewitt- Former lover of Diana claims he was warned on several occasions by elements of the security forces and a member of the royal family to stop seeing the Princess or his health would suffer! Hewitt has been exposed previously as being very willing to exploit a situation for his own ends, as in the publication of a sleazy book about Diana to which he contributed.
- Paparazzi- Initially blamed for the crash, most witnesses seem to agree that the bikes were not close enough to the Mercedes in the tunnel to have actually interfered with its progress.
NB These are just a selection of matters which cause concern for investigators. Many other points are raised by the "accident" but for reasons of space are not dealt with here.

Conclusions

There are many questions that arise out of this incident. The most plausible explanation still appears to be a tragic accident - Paul who was driving to some degree under the influence of alcohol, tried to accelerate away from the pursuing photographers, lost control going into the tunnel (after the slight curve in the road, and maybe as the Uno impeded his progress) and crashed into the tunnel's thirteenth pillar.
This maybe the most plausible explanation, however, we feel that without dramatic new evidence , such as the Uno and driver turning up, this will never be certain.
While there remains doubt as to whether it was an accident it is reasonable to question what the possible alternatives are. The most plausible of these has to involve members of the UK establishment and secret service as few others had anything to lose from Diana and Dodi's relationship. To keep such a plot secret we believe it would have to be the work of a small, isolated cell working under its own auspices within the system.
Former agents have told of a plot to destabilise the then Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson in the Seventies. Wilson did indeed resign from office, shocking political commentators at the time. We know that our intelligence service keeps records on Peace campaigners and Union officials for the "threat" of being radicals.
If the service really does operate as efficiently as James Bond films lead us to believe, which we doubt very strongly, then there would be nothing to stop them orchestrating Diana's death AND making it appear to be an accident.
But as yet there is clearly more evidence to support an accident than a secret plot. For us though, the jury is still out.

Diana Assassination Conspiracy:Ex-MI6 Agent Raided
    by DAILY EXPRESS
A raid on the home of a former British spy was sensationally linked to the Princess Diana inquiry last night.

French secret servicemen and police stormed a property owned by renegade MI6 agent Richard Tomlinson.

They arrested the 42-year-old ex-spy before seizing computer files and personal papers from his home in Cannes on the French Riviera.

Tomlinson’s career put him in a position to give compelling insights into the thinking of Britain’s spymasters about Diana
in the years before her death. His position at the heart of the spy network gave him a unique view into what lay behind
the Paris crash which killed the Princess,
her boyfriend Dodi Al Fayed and driv er Henri Paul in August 1997.

Tomlinson’s yacht, which was moored near his flat, was also "turned upside down," according to those involved in the raid last week.

The former secret service agent, who has spent time in prison for writing about his spying experiences, is understood to
have twice met team members of the Lord Stevens inquiry into the death of Diana and assisted them.

New query over Diana's death
June 15 2003

A British coroner is to re-open an inquiry into the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, a British newspaper said today.
The Sunday Mirror today reported the car in which Princess Diana and her friend Dodi Al-Fayed were killed in 1997, currently held at a police station in a Paris suburb, could be sent to England for examination.
According to the weekly, coroner Michael Burgess has decided to re-open an inquiry into the death of Diana who divorced the heir to the British throne, Prince Charles, in 1996.
"For almost six years the whereabouts of the VIP limousine - and the answers to why and how the couple died - have remained a mystery," the tabloid wrote.
On August 31, 1997, a Mercedes 280 with tabloid photographers in pursuit slammed into a concrete pillar in the Alma underpass in Paris at high speed, killing Diana and her companion.

UK to unfold Diana's mysterious deathAdd to Clippings
  •  
  • LONDON: With fateful timing, exactly 48 hours before Diana and Dodi's sixth death anniversary on Sunday, the world has been told it might finally be on the verge of solving the most famous and mysterious car crash in history.

    On Friday, the British authorities announced a one-million-pound inquest into Dodi's death "sooner rather than later". It is thought effectively to constitute the first official public inquiry on British soil into Diana's death.

    The inquest, long delayed by legal and police procedure, is a requirement under British law when a body is returned to the UK following a death abroad. The tragic couple has not had an inquest so far and there had been some speculation a joint inquiry may be announced next week.

    Dodi's father, the London businessman Mohammed al-Fayed, has long campaigned for a public inquiry, claiming the crash was no accident.

    Despite millions of websites with conspiracy theories to match, there is little public clarity about the circumstances surrounding the tragic death of the most photographed woman in the world, Diana, Princess of Wales.

    The only investigation so far has been conducted in secret by a French judge, who issued a 6,000-page report that was never published.

    A spokesman for the south-east English county council of Surrey, where Dodi lived and his inquest will be held, said there were "no plans" for a joint hearing.

    Even so, any inquest into the car crash is expected to delve deep. It is expected to summon – and hear – at least 10 key witnesses the world has not formally interviewed so far. They include Francois and Valerie Levistre, who claimed to have seen a "big flash" coming out of the tunnel just before the crash; Brenda Wells, who claimed she was prevented by a motorbike from going down the crucial approach road to the crash-site ahead of the crash and Gary Hunter, who said he saw two vehicles race out of the tunnel, including a mysterious dark car.

    The crumpled Mercedes in which Diana and Dodi made their last journey, is likely to be shipped from Paris to England and examined for the first time here.

    The death in a Paris underpass on August 31, 1997, has always remained a black hole of suspicion and controversy. For years, there have been frenzied allegations she was assassinated by British intelligence agencies due to her choice of an Arab Muslim lover.

    Henri Paul, the couple's driver that night, was alleged by a former British intelligence officer to have been in the pay of MI6.

    Diana's two sons, the Princes William and Harry, are said to be keen on an inquest.

    Patricia Cornwell 'solves mystery' of Diana car crash
    By Andrew Alderson, Chief Reporter
    Patricia Cornwell, the world's best-selling living crime writer, has uncovered new evidence during a six-month investigation into the death
    of Diana, Princess of Wales.
     
     
     
    The author, who is understood to have gained access to officials directly involved in the autopsy on the Princess's body,
    believes that the new material will "lay some rumours and errors to rest".
    It is believed that she has been able to disprove misguided speculation that the Princess was pregnant with her third child when she died.
    In an interview with The Telegraph yesterday, Cornwell said that her inquiries had been "especially painful" and had left her with a respect
    The Princess of Wales died six years ago in a car crash in Paris which also claimed the lives of Dodi Fayed, her boyfriend, and Henri Paul,
    their driver. Trevor Rees-Jones, Mr Fayed's bodyguard, was the only survivor of the high-speed crash in the Alma tunnel in the early
    hours of August 31, 1997.
    Cornwell's findings will be broadcast in America in an hour-long programme for ABC's Prime Time Thursday slot on October 30.
     The film will be shown before the long-awaited inquest into the Princess's death.
    The inquest is due to be held in Britain but Michael Burgess, the coroner for the Royal Household, has not yet set a date for it. Herve Stephan,
    the French judge who conducted an investigation into the crash, has, however, blamed Mr Paul, the driver, saying that alcohol, prescription
    drugs and the high speed of the vehicle had all played a role.
    "I decided to look into the death of Princess Diana because it seems that the past six years have brought only more questions, rumours
     and baffling blanks," said Cornwell.
    The writer made her name with her novels, but has also earned a reputation for her investigations into real-life crimes.
    Her findings have sometimes been controversial: two years ago she became "100 per cent" certain that Walter Sickert,
    In America, where she was born in Miami, she is known as the "high priestess of crime" and her novels - full of serial killers
     and gruesome autopsies - have earned her an estimated $100 million (£71 million).
    Cornwell conducted her latest inquiries sympathetically. She was aware that such an investigation could be distressing
    for the Princess's friends and family, particularly her sons, Princes William and Harry.
    "I am guided by integrity and compassion, although seeking the truth isn't always comfortable for anyone involved.
    I have to say that this investigation was especially painful, the scope of its tragedy beyond measure, the losses
    devastating to the entire world.
    "I had no preconceptions, but was simply baffled by every detail I'd heard. Some information made no sense.
    The investigation will direct an objective beam on the most serious questions and conflicts, and reveal facts about them that have
    never before been addressed this thoroughly and accurately.
    "I have been shocked by how much primary information has been ignored and how much erroneous information has been chronically
     recycled. One would think there was nothing new to say about this case, but that couldn't have proved further from the truth."
    As a novelist, Cornwell ignored advice that "nobody wants to know about the morgue". In 1990, she published Postmortem,
     the first of 12 novels based on the fictional heroine Kay Scarpetta, a forensic pathologist from Virginia who tracks down serial sex killers.
    Cornwell has been described as an obsessive seeker after truth. She spent $6 million (£3.75 million) of her own money investigating
     the killings of Jack the Ripper. She bought 32 of Sickert's paintings - which sell for more than £30,000 each - and even cut up one in
    her search for clues.
    She bought the artist's desk to test it for DNA and flew forensic scientists from America to London to sift through archives of letters.
    Her book on the case, Portrait of a Killer, currently tops the best-selling non-fiction paperback list in Britain.
    Cornwell, who spent several weeks in Britain last month pursuing her latest inquiries, refused to disclose whom she interviewed
     about the Princess's death, or the full details of her findings. She did, however, give an insight into one of her discoveries:
     "Forensic scientists have indicated that Henri Paul never even hit the brakes [before the car crashed]," she said.
    The programme is likely to address questions about whether the Princess of Wales received the best possible medical care
    Mohamed Fayed, the Egyptian owner of Harrods and the father of Dodi, has co-operated with the crime writer for the programme.
    There is certainly no guarantee, however, that Cornwell will concur with his conspiracy theories over the Paris crash, including
     his bizarre claim that the Royal Family played a role.
    "People who want me to advocate one theory or another won't be pleased," Cornwell said. Those close to the crime writer believe
    "I have a number of important interviews with very significant witnesses who have never before addressed this case publicly,
    " Cornwell said. "In addition I spoke to official witnesses whose identities - and even some of their information - are too sensitive to reveal."
    She added: "My mission as a literary investigator with roots in journalism is to bring about justice - even if there is no one to arrest as
     in the case of Jack the Ripper - and to allow healing, as in the cases of those left behind who either anguish over not knowing
     what really happened or are wounded repeatedly by theories of misinformation, mistakes or even lies.
    "My tools are primary sources, medicine, science and arduous hit-the-pavement investigation."
    She hopes that those who were close to the Princess will welcome her findings. "I sincerely hope that the show will lay some
     rumours and errors to rest, and I believe it will. Theories, however, will never entirely go away."

  • MI6 Murdered the People's Princess

    Open Letter from Mohammed Al Fayed

    ©Mohammed Al Fayed, www.Mathaba.net
    Most people are profoundly shocked, and rightly so, by the idea that Dodi and Diana were murdered.Princess Diana Yet it is my firm belief that Britain's racist establishment found their relationship utterly unacceptable, and so conspired with the intelligence services to have them killed. My repeated appeals for a full public inquiry in Britain into the Paris tragedy have been rejected out of hand by the prime minister, Tony Blair and the home secretary, Jack Straw but I shall never abandon my fight for disclosure of the full facts. The following open letter explains why.
    Since the 31st August 1997, the terrible day that my son Dodi and Princess Diana died in Paris, I have tried by all means that I know to get answers to the many questions left hanging in the air. I have been thwarted at every turn. The official French investigation has so far failed to resolve many key questions. The British government still refuses to hold a public inquiry. The intelligence services in France, Britain and the USA have stonewalled – though we know that intelligence services had Diana under surveillance on the fateful night in Paris. And, as we have seen only too clearly following the publication of the book by Trevor Rees-Jones (but one example), there has been a concerted campaign to discredit my attempts to get at the truth.
    I know that I am bitterly resented by some members of the British establishment. There are those who cannot accept that an Egyptian from a modest background should have become the owner of Harrods, a shop they considered a part of their heritage. Others reckon me beyond the pale because of my part in revealing corruption in the highest places. For a few, I suspect, it is simply a matter of racism; though they would never dream of saying so in public, they despise foreigners – especially those with crinkly hair and dark skins. Behind the scenes, the extreme right-wing in Britain still wields enormous influence particularly in the press and the corridors of unelected power. In my experience these people are ruthless in their determination and will stop at nothing to achieve their ends.
    Certainly my attempts to make progress through the official channels are blocked consistently by a brick wall of silence and secrecy.
    When I met Mr Blair in May 1999 at a reception hosted by the Muslim Council, I gave him this paper which set out my concerns and asked for his help, and a copy of this memo which I had given to the Council. I heard nothing. Then my lawyers wrote to him. Again, nothing. The same wall of silence greeted my letters to the Foreign Secretary, the Home Secretary and the Heads of MI5 and MI6. Such silence is rude and discourteous to me personally. I have given 35 years of my life to this country, paying hundreds of millions in taxes and employing tens of thousands of people. I have helped to win British firms overseas contracts worth billions of pounds. After making such a contribution to the country, I think I've earned the right to some answers. But more importantly, the people of Britain deserve answers: Diana was – in Tony Blair's words – "The People's Princess". A blanket refusal to answer legitimate questions can only fuel suspicion of foul play.
    These concerns were taken up in Parliament by the Conservative MP Charles Wardle. He did so of his own volition. In an adjournment debate in July 1999 he set out with great force and clarity the many reasons for holding a full inquiry in Britain into the Paris crash, conducted openly for all to see and follow. He requested a formal response from the Home Office; none has been forthcoming.
    I have pursued information in the United States under their Freedom of Information Act. The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the National Security Agency (NSA) have confirmed that they hold 39 documents consisting of 1,056 pages of information relating to Diana and Dodi but they refuse to reveal it on the grounds of national security. My American lawyers have been fighting for access to this vital information for the last year. A court in Washington DC has ordered the CIA to hand over the documents, but they have not complied. Recently we sought a subpoena to force the production of the documents – only to have the judge rule that, under the statute which allows subpoenas to be issued in connection with foreign proceedings, he did not have jurisdiction to issue a subpoena against the federal government. We have appealed and hope to get some movement soon, but it is a very slow business.
    The attitude of the British government was well-illustrated recently. On 27 February The Sunday Times published an article headlined "Spy agencies listened in on Diana". In this article, "former intelligence officials" confirmed to the newspaper that spy agencies in Britain and America "eavesdropped on Diana". The very next day, in response to my earlier demands for an official statement on this matter, I received a letter from the Treasury Solicitor, categorically denying any such activity by the security services, or those working on their behalf. Given that Diana was mother to the future King, and was often at odds with the Royal Family, it is frankly unbelievable that the security forces were taking no interest in her – but the official line attempts to deny the obvious.
    According to Stephen Dorril's newly published history of Britain's overseas intelligence service, "MI6: Fifty Years of Special Operations" (p788):Stephen Dorril's Book
    "... the late Princess of Wales had clearly been under some kind of surveillance, as evidenced by the 1,050-page dossier held by the US National Security Agency detailing private telephone conversations between Diana and American friends intercepted at MI6's request ". (emphasis added)
    It is hardly surprising that my efforts to uncover the truth about the Paris crash have made me a lot of enemies. But I have been shocked at the lengths that these people will go to in their attempts to discredit me. The Daily and Sunday Telegraph newspapers, considered by many to be the heart of reactionary opinion in Britain, have mounted an extraordinarily vicious and sustained campaign. Since the crash they have printed a never-ending stream of hostile articles – about 150 in all – accusing me of everything from tax evasion to sexual harassment. Their fellow-travellers, The Daily Mail, The Mail on Sunday and the London Evening Standard have joined in the fun. (For a more detailed account, see Mohamed Al Fayed and the Press). While seeking to portray me as some kind of fantasist, they show no interest themselves in establishing the facts. If they are able to prove me wrong, why don't they do so?
    The most recent attack on me was The Daily Telegraph's publication of extracts from the book "The Bodyguard's Story" by Trevor Rees-Jones. This account was, in fact, compiled by a committee and crafted by a ghostwriter. It is based substantially on the recollections of others because Rees-Jones himself has no memory of the crash itself and only partial recall of much else. He has simply been used as a vehicle to sensationalise a book which peddles the lies of those hell-bent on silencing me. And he has clearly forgotten completely about the confidentiality clause in his contract of employment with me.
    The motives behind the book are plain: they are to clear Trevor and his friend Kez Wingfield, the other bodyguard that night, of all responsibility for the tragedy and also to get "some recompense for what's happened." Everything in the book is shaped by these twin objectives of shifting the blame and selling the book. Trevor is consistently portrayed as a saint while I am relentlessly cast as the evil genius trying to manipulate his memories to support wild conspiracy theories. It is all rubbish and deeply ironic when it is Trevor and those who collaborated with him who are manipulating the truth for their own ends. Trevor has admitted that they – lawyers included – are all part of the book deal and so will share the profits. Like everyone else, I have the greatest sympathy for Trevor. He went through hell. But I cannot overlook the fact that, on the night, he failed to carry out established security procedures. Had he done so, the couple might be alive today.
    Interestingly, the ghostwriter Moira Johnston is best-known for a book on a famous court case concerning so-called "recovered memories." In her third-person narrative, individuals have a startling recall of precisely what they were thinking and saying more than two and a half years ago and, even more remarkable, an exact knowledge of what other people were thinking and saying when key events took place!
    Every trick in the book, every tabloid technique known to man, has been employed to fashion a fiction that parades as the truth. I bitterly resent this malicious book and its intrusion on my private family life and security arrangements. I simply cannot understand why I was refused an injunction when Tony Blair was awarded one to stop a book about his family written by a well-intentioned nanny who is a friend of the family! Sometimes the law really is an ass.
    The Daily Telegraph and other newspapers have claimed quite wrongly that "The Bodyguard's Story" demolishes many of my theories. In fact, it contains no new information and actually lends weight to my conviction that Henri Paul was not drunk at all.Work of Fiction Both Trevor and Kez continue to insist that Paul gave no indication whatsoever of being drunk before he got behind the wheel. They had been with him for extended periods that evening and still maintain that there was nothing in his behaviour or general conduct to suggest that he had been drinking. If this is the case, how then do they account for the inquiry finding that, within three minutes of leaving the hotel, he was more than three times over the drink-drive limit?
    The book makes several claims (about the engagement ring and the reported last words of Diana) which are wrong, but otherwise it consists of little more than gossip and innuendo designed to clear the bodyguards of any responsibility for what happened. Despite this, the Establishment has hailed it as a work of great significance. Like the recent revelation that the brother-in-law ofThe Sunday Telegraph editor is a senior MI6 officer , it shows how far the influence of the Establishment extends.
    I remain convinced that most fair-minded people believe there was foul play in Paris. Even The Daily Telegraph Home Affairs Editor Philip Johnston was recently forced to acknowledge:
    "Since the serialisation began, this newspaper and others connected with the book have been contacted by people who just cannot come to terms with the banal circumstances of the Princess's death. One caller yesterday berated The Daily Telegraph for 'covering up what everyone knows is the truth' ".
    Like Trevor Rees-Jones, I too would like to move on and lead a normal life but the Establishment is making that impossible. It is their constant refusal to answer perfectly straightforward questions that drives me on. They should know that the efforts to discredit and destroy me will not succeed and that I will never give up my fight to discover the full facts about the deaths of Dodi and Diana. I am not alone in wanting answers. There is widespread public unease about the circumstances of the tragedy. Very many ordinary people in this country want answers and they deserve them. In my own mind I must be certain that what happened in Paris was truly God's will and not the will of others. I have great faith that God will guide and protect me in my search and I fear no one. I am equally sure that one day the truth will be known.

    Diana 'foresaw death crash'

    By Robert Jobson and Richard Holliday, Evening Standard 20.10.03
    Princess Diana predicted her death in a car crash only months before the Paris tragedy which killed her.
    The extraordinary revelation emerged today as a handwritten letter she gave her butler Paul Burrell was made public for the first time.
    The letter says: “They’re planning ‘an accident’ in my car, brake failure and serious head injury in order to make the path clear for Charles to marry.”
    In the letter Diana names who she believed was plotting to kill her. But for legal reasons the identity cannot be revealed.
    The claims will reignite the conspiracy theories that have surrounded Diana since she died with her boyfriend Dodi Fayed in the Alma tunnel in Paris in August 1997.
    The revelations are made in Mr Burrell’s new book, A Royal Duty, which is
    being serialised in the Daily Mirror. It comes amid continuing controversy
    about the failure to stage a full inquest in Britain into Diana’s death.
    Although it has been six years since the tragedy, only in the last few months
    has Royal Coroner Michael Burgess agreed to a full public investigation.
    He was expected to name a date within days, but it has now emerged he will not
    be drawn on a timescale.
    Today’s revelations are certain to impact on the relationship of Charles
    and Camilla Parker Bowles. They pose a setback for the couple just as they are
    becoming increasingly accepted by the Queen, the public and the establishment and as a forthcoming marriage was being seen as a more realistic prospect.
    Diana gave Mr Burrell the letter in October 1996 just 10 months before the
    accident as “insurance” for the future.
    He claims it has been part of “the burden I have carried since the Princess’s
    death.” He adds: “Deciding what to do with it has been a source of much
    soulsearching.”
    But Mr Burrell, who is set to make millions from his book, is bound to be
    accused of cashing in on Diana’s memory.
    Last year he was cleared of stealing her personal possessions after the dramatic intervention of the Queen just before he was to give evidence.
    Harrods owner Mohamed Fayed, father of Dodi, has always claimed his
    son and Diana were killed in a Secret Service plot.
    He has spent hundreds of thousands of pounds on a private investigation to try to prove his conspiracy theory.

    Patricia Cornwell 'solves mystery' of Diana car crash






  • Burrell: MI5 Linked to Diana's Death
    PAUL Burrell yesterday told police of an MI5 link to the chilling letter in which Princess Diana predicted she would be killed in a car crash.
    The ex-royal butler was quizzed for three hours by detectives probing Diana's death in 1997.
    Mr Burrell, 46, said: "It was a delicate and sensitive meeting and I helped the officers as much as I could." He talked about a secret friendship which the princess had struck up with a former MI5 intelligence officer.
    The man's warning prompted Diana to write her fears in a letter that she would die in a car accident - 10 months before the Paris crash.
    Two officers quizzed Mr Burrell at his solicitor's office in Chester about the letter's authenticity and context. Asked if he had talked about the MI5 link Mr Burrell added: "I mentioned everything which I believed was relevant."
    Diana believed she was being watched by the security services.
    Coroner Michael Burgess ordered an investigation into her death before a full inquest next spring.
    Police said: " The meeting was not a formal police interview."

    I Heard Diana's Dying Words

    Glasgow Daily Record | March 14 2004

    Comment: Diana was still alive and would have survived had the ambulance not deliberately passed four seperate hospitals and had it not been going at a maximum speed of only 25 miles per hour.

    Comment: Diana was still alive and would have survived had the ambulance not deliberately passed four seperate hospitals and had it not been going at a maximum speed of only 25 miles per hour.

    PRINCESS Diana spoke to rescuers as she lay in the wreckage of her Paris car crash, it was claimed yesterday.

    She was conscious and asked questions of a fireman who comforted her, he said.

    Carlo Zaglia told how she repeatedly asked: 'What's happened?What's going on?'

    Meanhile, a claim by Dodi's father, Mohamed al Fayed, that MI6 were implicated in the deaths was dismissed yesterday.

    At the Court of Session, Judge Lord Drummond Young said that the Harrods owner, who owns Balnagown castle in Ross-shire, had not produced any facts to back up his allegations.

    He threw out the bid to have a public inquiry in Scotland into the tragedy which he blamed purely on the high-speed crash.

    A coroner's inquest has been launched in England but al Fayed believes its scope is limited and will keep pushing for a public inquiry.

    American TV viewers yesterday saw the first broadcast of a film showing Diana giggling and pulling faces for Princes William and Harry as she rehearsed for a speech.



    I Saw Fiat Driver Kill Di
    Sunday People - 01/18/04

    A NEW witness to Princess Diana's death smash has come forward - and says her limo WAS forced to crash by a white Fiat.

    Saw Fiat Driver Kill Di

    Sunday People

    A NEW witness to Princess Diana's death smash has come forward - and says her limo WAS forced to crash by a white Fiat.

    Moroccan beauty Souad Mouffakir, 33, kept silent for six years about what she saw because she feared she would be killed.

    But last week she gave her startling evidence to The People after her husband Mohamed Medjahdi - who was driving in front of Diana's black Mercedes in a Paris underpass - claimed there was NO mystery Fiat. Souad said:

    I saw through the back window a Fiat Uno driving very fast up to us in the outside lane. But rather than hurtle past, it slowed down so we were side by side.

    It was very strange behaviour and I got frightened. The white car was only centimetres from ours. I stared over to the driver and I will never forget him.

    He had a very strange expression like his mind was thinking about something else. His whole manner was odd. It troubled me.

    He was Mediterranean, short because his head was only just above the steering wheel. His skin was tanned and his hair was very dark brown and wiry.

    He was in his mid-thirties. In the back seat was a huge alsatian. I became very scared, I thought he was a madman and I told Mohamed to speed away. We did that and a moment later we heard the screech of tyres.

    I looked round and saw a black Mercedes sliding out of control at 45 degrees, coming straight at us. I saw the car impact into the pillar. I did not realise that I had just seen the crash that killed Diana. I saw the chauffeur thrown forward into the steering wheel. I knew he had been killed immediately.

    I wake thinking about it. The nightmares are terrible. I looked for the Fiat but it had disappeared. The Mercedes must have gone out of control trying to avoid it.


    Souad contacted police next day and she and Mohamed, 29, were quizzed but neither mentioned the Fiat because, she says, they were too scared.

    But Souad, who split with forklift truck driver Mohamed three years ago, agreed to speak to The People after he claimed in British and French newspapers last week that there was NO Fiat.

    At her home in a northern suburb of Paris, she said: "I have kept my silence for over six years but I am sick Mohamed lied.

    "I was convinced what I saw would lead me to being killed. But anyone who tries to kill me now will have to come out of hiding to do it.

    "I am furious Mohamed did not tell the whole truth. Diana was a beautiful woman who did so much good. I owe it to her and the people who loved her."

    Souad's dramatic claims were backed by two close friends.

    Farida Azzouz, 31, said: "Souad told me just after it happened that she had seen a white Fiat but she hadn't told the police about it. She was worried her life would be in danger."

    Another friend, Bouchra Zahdane, 24, said: "I can confirm they witnessed the crash but they kept very quiet about the exact details of it."

    Souad's evidence will be keenly studied by British police who have been asked by Royal coroner Dr Michael Burgess to investigate the deaths of Diana and her lover Dodi Fayed.

    The People has made no payment to Souad.



    Police doubts on Diana's death
    London Times - 01/10/04

    SERIOUS doubts have emerged among British police over the authenticity of a blood sample which shows that Diana, Princess of Wales was killed by a drunken driver.

    Police doubts on Diana's death


    London Times

    SERIOUS doubts have emerged among British police over the authenticity of a blood sample which shows that Diana, Princess of Wales was killed by a drunken driver. 

    Four days after the inquest into Diana's death was opened, The Times has discovered that there are high-level concerns over the forensic evidence at the heart of France's investigation. 

    The French authorities have failed to carry out DNA tests to prove that the specimen belonged to the chauffeur Henri Paul, The Times has learnt. 

    This threatens the conclusion of the French authorities that Diana was killed by a driver high on alcohol and prescription drugs who lost control of a car while speeding. 

    The French inquiry into Diana's death in a Mercedes in a Paris road tunnel on August 31, 1997 has been carefully monitored by United Kingdom diplomats, Whitehall and police. France has been resisting pressure from M Paul's family, and advice from UK officials, to carry out DNA tests which would finally prove that the blood belonged to M Paul. 

    The source of the British suspicion is that the sample contains an extraordinarily-high level of carbon monoxide, so much so that the chauffeur would have struggled to walk, let alone drive a car. 

    It is now feared by the authorities in London that an innocent mix-up in the laboratory or morgue may have led to the wrong sample being tested. 

    One possibility is that the sample comes from the corpse of somebody poisoned by carbon monoxide, the deadly gas found in household fires and car exhausts. The blood specimen is at the centre of the official French explanation of the deaths of Diana, her boyfriend Dodi Fayed, and M Paul. 

    The examining magistrates Hervé Stephan and Marie-Christine Devidal said that the three died as the result of an accident, rather than a deliberate act. This was because "the driver of the vehicle was drunk and under the effect of medicine incompatible with alcohol, a state which did not enable him to maintain control of his vehicle while driving at high speed on a difficult part of the road, and also having to avoid a vehicle travelling in the same direction at a slower speed". 

    The blood, purporting to come from M Paul, indicated he was three times over the French drink-drive limit, and twice over the British. 

    If the blood sample cannot be positively connected to the chauffeur, there is still evidence that his driving may have been to blame for the deaths. Scotland Yard sources have indicated that they have a high regard for the quality of the French road traffic accident investigation, which they hail as "exemplary". 

    The Mercedes S280 was travelling at a speed somewhere between 74mph and 97mph when it entered the Pont d'Alma tunnel, and at between 59mph and 68mph when it hit a pillar. The finding that M Paul had a high level of alcohol in his blood was first made by the Paris prosecutor's office on September 1, the day after the fatal crash. 

    Lawyers for Mohamed Al Fayed, Dodi's father, sought an independent analysis of the blood samples but Judge Stephan refused. The judge ordered new tests in order to counter any future challenges. Blood, hair and bone marrow was drawn and examined on September 4 with the whole procedure recorded on video. 

    Small traces of tiaprise - used to treat pain or aggression, often in chronic alcoholics - were found. So was a therapeutic dose of fluoxetine, the key active ingredient in the anti-depressant Prozac. "Care in the use of these medicines is habitually recommended to drivers," the public prosecutor's office said. Analysis of protein transfer in M Paul's blood produced results "compatible . . . with a chronic alcoholism over the course of at least a week", the office said. One of the samples showed 20.7 per cent of the blood had combined with carbon monoxide, an unusually-high level. Mr Al Fayed has long claimed that the blood samples were swapped by British and French intelligence agents to cover up murder. 

    In August 2002, the chauffeur's family filed a complaint of "falsification of expert evidence", without naming a defendant in a Paris court. The aim was to force the authorities to hand over blood samples for DNA tests. Their suit has been rejected as unfounded. Mr Al Fayed's lawyers have raised questions about the constant refusal by the authorities to grant access to the samples or to M Paul's body. 

    Jean-Claude Mules, a police inspector who played a central role in the investigation, said: "There was no error over the blood. We are very serious people and no errors are allowed." 

    However Jean Paul, the father of the late Ritz Hotel security official, said: "We remain absolutely convinced that our son had not been drinking."

    Diana In Fear Over '95 Crash

    Diana In Fear Over '95 Crash

    London Mirror
    A FRIEND of Princess Diana has told how she had a car crash two years before she died which she blamed on sabotage.

    Simone Simmons, 48, is ready to testify to the Scotland Yard inquiry into Diana's fatal accident in Paris in 1997.

    Two years earlier, the princess's green convertible had hit another car as she drove away from a healing centre in Marylebone, central London.

    Ms Simmons said: "Diana rang to tell me. She was panic-stricken. She told me that the brakes had suddenly failed.

    "Fortunately she wasn't hurt. It seemed to reinforce her belief that someone was trying to kill her.

    "Diana said later that the garage confirmed it was just a mechanical failure, and not foul play.

    "But it shook her up badly and she was convinced that someone had tampered with the car."

    Last week the Daily Mirror revealed how Diana wrote in a note that Charles might be plotting her death in similar fashion.

    Diana was pregnant when she died: Report


    Diana was pregnant when she died: Report

    December 21, 2003 18:41 IST
    Last Updated: December 22, 2003 15:20 IST

    Princess Diana was pregnant at the time of her death in a road accident in Paris six years ago, a media report said in London on Sunday.
    "I can tell you that she (Diana) was pregnant," a senior police official in France told the Independent.
    According to the daily, the source dismissed suggestions that there was any conspiracy before the death of Diana, her friend Dodi al-Fayed and their driver in a car crash on August 31, 1997.
    The source, however, claimed that there was 'a cover-up of sorts' in the days following the crash. The officer said medical reports, which have never been made public, showed that Diana was pregnant at the time of her death.
    Conspiracy theorists had seized reports that Diana was pregnant - first alleged by Dodi's father millionaire businessman Mohammed al-Fayed soon after the accident - as a possible motive for an assassination plot by the British royal family and government.
    The source who, according to the report, saw all documents relating to the case was speaking after a British coroner announced that he would hold inquests into the cause of the deaths of Diana and Dodi, beginning on January 6, 2004.
    The source said the investigation points clearly to an accident, caused in part by the fact that chauffeur Henri Paul had been drinking heavily.
    Diana's friends and her butler, Paul Burrell, have, in the past, strenuously denied suggestions that the princess was expecting a third child at the time of her death.
    The source implied that Diana's pregnancy was hushed up to spare the embarrassment to her family. Since it was not regarded as relevant to the cause of the accident, or her death, it was not mentioned at the end of the two-year judicial investigation into the crash by a French judge, Herve Stephan.
    Medical reports from the hospital where Diana died may, however, be included among the 6,000 pages of documents from the French investigation, which will be delivered to the British coroner, Michael Burgess. The coroner has said that he cannot open the hearings until he received the investigation file once legal proceedings were completed in France. He also indicated that the full hearings would be delayed until the whole file has been translated and studied.
    There has also been speculation about the time it has taken to call a British inquest, now routine when a British citizen dies abroad. The proceedings have been prolonged mostly by Fayed who appealed against the original decision by French authorities to bring no action against the photographers who pursued Diana and Dodi's car.
    When he lost the appeal, Fayed filed another case against three photographers for invading his son's privacy. In November, a French court dismissed the case.

    Diana's death likened to MI6 plot

    British and American security services were monitoring Diana and Dodi in the month leading up to their deaths and that Henri Paul may have been an MI6 informant.



    Diana's death likened to MI6 plot

    JOHN ROBERTSON LAW CORRESPONDENT 
    The Scotsman - Tues 16th Dec

    MORE than six years after the deaths of Diana, Princess of Wales, and Dodi Al-Fayed, the questions surrounding the Paris car crash in which they were killed continue to grip the public imagination. 

    The Court of Session in Edinburgh became the centre of international attention yesterday as Mohamed al-Fayed, the owner of Harrods, pursued his search for the truth about how, or why, his son and Diana died. 

    "I have been fighting for six years, but I can see the light and justice can be done. What I am doing is for the nation and for the ordinary people ... Eighty-five per cent believe Diana was murdered with my son." 

    The court heard Mr Fayed’s counsel contend that he had "substantial grounds" for fearing that the British security services were implicated. The crash, it was claimed, had "striking similarities" to an earlier MI6 plot to remove Slobodan Milosevic, then president of Serbia. 

    Colin Boyd, QC, the Lord Advocate, has refused an inquiry into the crash, but Mr Fayed maintains that as a resident of Scotland, at Balnagown Castle, Kildary, Easter Ross, he is entitled to secure his rights under the tenets of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). 

    Mr Fayed argues there should be an effective, official inquiry when someone appears to have been killed as a result of the use of force and is asking Lord Drummond Young to set aside the Lord Advocate’s decision as incompatible with the ECHR. 

    Richard Keen, QC, for Mr Fayed, said that the official line from the French police after the crash in a tunnel in Paris in the early hours of 31 August, 1997, was that it had been an accident caused by Henri Paul, assistant head of security at the Ritz hotel and the driver of the Mercedes the couple died in. The French police said Mr Paul was drunk and on anti-depressants at the time of the crash. Mr Paul also died in the incident. 

    "He [Mr Paul] had been in the Ritz Hotel for two hours before he left and is recalled by all those who spoke with him as being entirely sober," said Mr Keen. He said British and American security services were monitoring Diana and Dodi in the month leading up to their deaths and that Henri Paul may have been an MI6 informant. 

    And on the night of the crash Mr Paul had taken a "highly unusual route" from the Ritz to Dodi’s apartment. 

    The QC said pieces of a broken tail-light, from a white Fiat Uno, had been found at the scene of the crash, and there were marks on the bumper of the Mercedes. 

    Inquiries had "led to the suggestion" that the driver of the Fiat might have been James Andanson, a member of the paparazzi who had been pursuing the couple that summer, although he denied being in Paris that night. In 2000, Mr Andanson’s body was found. It was initially treated as murder, but then was declared to have been suicide. 

    Mr Keen said there had been reports of a flash of light in the tunnel, which would have blinded a driver. 

    A former MI6 agent had said the circumstances bore "striking similarities" to a plan in 1992 to assassinate Milosevic. The agent had also revealed that MI6 had an informant on the security staff at the Ritz Hotel. After the crash, it was learned that Mr Paul had 13 bank accounts containing more than a million francs. 

    "It might suggest he had at least some kind of part-time job," said Mr Keen. 

    Diana had expressed fears for her safety, and Mr Keen added: "If her fears had only one ounce of truth in October 1996, one is entitled to ask how much greater they may have been in August 1997 when the general anticipation was that a person denigrated by sections of the establishment was about to become stepfather to the future king," said Mr Keen. 

    Mr Keen said Diana and Princes William and Harry were being monitored from around 10 July, 1997, when they arrived at the Fayed estate in St Tropez in the south of France. 

    After the couple arrived at Beauvais airport on August 30, Mr Keen told the court, "as a matter of practice French security reported the arrival of the Princess to the UK embassy assuming they were not aware of it. 

    Mr Keen added that the US National Security Agency has confirmed the Princess was the subject of monitoring at the time of the crash. 

    The hearing is expected to last several days, and the judge will issue his ruling later.

    Diana 'feared for her life'

    Diana, the late Princess of Wales, feared for her life, close friend Roberto Devorik, an Argentine fashion impresario and designer, has revealed.


    Diana 'feared for her life'

    Sydney Morning Herald
    an Argentine fashion impresario and designer, has revealed. 

    Mr Devorik, who is director of the Ralph Lauren subsidiary in Argentina, said that, before a private jet trip with Diana to Rome, she had said to him: "Let's see if we fly together or they blow us up." 

    He told El Clarin newspaper that Diana said during the flight that she had a "premonition" that "they are going to kill me in one of these machines, in a helicopter". 

    He said Diana added: "But after I'm dead, it's going to be harder for them to forget me because if they kill me, the memory of me is going to stay with them the rest of their lives." 

    The first news that Diana might have feared for her life was from former royal butler Paul Burrell in A Royal Duty, his memoir of his service to her, which was released last month. 

    He said Diana wrote a letter 10 months before she died saying she feared somebody was planning "an accident" in her car.

    Mr Devorik said that, after Diana's death, "obviously there was something very strange because the investigation was never carried out fully - there are things that were never explained and which deserve an explanation". 

    He said the love of Diana's life was Pakistani physician Hasnet Khan. 

    He said Dodi al-Fayed was not the man of Diana's life. 

    In the interview with El Clarin, that appeared on Sunday, he said Diana had told him that Dodi was "a summer romance".




    Diana: The Real Reason Stores Are Pulling The Globe?
    Story of William's revenge quickly being removed from the shelves

    Diana: The Real Reason Stores Are Pulling The Globe?

    Rayelan Allan
    WHY ARE MANY STORES IN THE MIDWEST PULLING THE GLOBE TABLOID? 

    Are they doing it to protect Kobe Bryant's accuser? Or are they doing it to keep you from knowing that Prince Phillip was behind Diana's murder? 

    The GLOBE tabloid is being pulled from many stores in the midwest part of the United States. It is unknown if the rest of the country will soon join these stores in removing the tabloid. 

    The reason given for removing the November 11th edition of the tabloid is that it published both a picture and the name of the woman that is accusing Kobe Bryant of rape. 

    This woman's name and picture have been on the Internet for months. If anyone had been interested in finding out what she looked like or what her name is, they could have done it months ago. 

    The GLOBE claims they published her name and photograph at the urging of several women's rights groups who asked them to do this. They failed to name the women's rights groups! 

    However, there is another story in this edition of the GLOBE, and it is my belief that the stores are removing the GLOBE because of THIS article. 

    The headline on the uppermost right side screamed: 

    "DID WILLIAM'S GRANDDAD MURDER DIANA?" 
    Crash plot uncovered

    When you open the tabloid to page 16 you see these headlines 

    WILLIAM VOWS TO EXPOSE CONSPIRACY TO KILL MOM 

    Was his grandfather behind the plot? 

    The article goes on to say that William... 

    STILL devastated over the death of his mother after six years, Prince William is determined to uncover the conspiracy he - believes led to her murder - even if it takes him straight to his own grandfather! 

    "I SHALL find the truth," William vowed to friends. 

    The Globe article mentions the book that was released last week by Diana's private butler, Paul Burrell: 

    In his blockbuster book, A Royal Duty, Burrell reprints the letter Diana wrote to him before her death, in which she said a car accident was being planned to "make the path clear" for Charles to marry Camilla Parker-Bowles. 

    In his book, Burrell published a photocopy of the letter Diana wrote to him in October of 1996: 

    Her fears caused her to write the note to him in October 1996. Before sealing the envelope addressed just to "Paul," she told him, "I'm going to date this and I want you to keep it...just in case." 

    SNIP 

    According to palace insiders, the 21-year-old William is certain the men were inspired by the rants and raves of Queen Elizabeth's husband Prince Philip, who saw Diana as a threat to the British monarchy. 

    In my book, Diana, Queen of Heaven, the New World Religion 


    http://www.rumormillnews.com/DianaIndex.htm

    I published an MI6 document which shows that Prince Phillip, referred to as Edinburgh, was behind the plot to murder Diana.

    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/RUMORMILLNEWS/message/12746

    They planned and brought about the horrific car crash in Paris in 1997 that killed 36-year-old Diana, her Egyptian lover Dodi AI Fayed and their chauffeur Henri Paul. 

    The MI6 document shows that the Mercedes that Diana and Dodi were in the night they were killed had been stolen and altered to cause the accident. The following is from the MI6 document: 

    7. al Fayed Mercedes Limo stolen and returned with electronics missing. Reliable intel source confirms K_team involved. Source reports car rebuilt to respond to external radio controls. (Report filed) 

    Continuing from the GLOBE: 

    The men believed that they were acting with the approval of powerful figures in the political and industrial establishment, and senior members of the royal family, including Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. 

    "The mean-tempered Duke was furious that Diana had taken Muslim lovers, including Dodi and her former beau, heart surgeon Hasnat Khan," says one palace source. 

    "Philip is known to hate and deride people of color from Asia and the Middle East. When he's had too much to drink, he's been heard to curse and demean them. The prospect of Diana marrying Dodi, who would then be- come stepfather to the young princes, drove him into a rage." 

    The MI6 document shows Prince Phillip's hatred of Muslims: 

    Edinburgh (Prince Phillip _ed) sees serious threat to dynasty should relationship endure. Quote reported: "Such an affair is racially and morally repugnant and no son of a bedouin camel trader is fit for the mother of a future king," Edinburgh. (Report filed) 

    Quoting the GLOBE article: 

    When the tome was serialized in The Daily Mirror, a national daily newspaper, the name of the person Diana believed was behind the scheme was blacked out. 

    But, say insiders, William has been told it reads, "Prince Philip." 

    The EIR (Executive Intelligence Review -- a LaRouche Intelligence Organization, published an editorial in which they named the three MI6 agents they believed were involved in Diana's murder. 

    "THEY" MURDERED DIANA AND PLOTTED TO KILL MILOSOVIC


    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/RUMORMILLNEWS/message/12744

    From the EIR article: 

    Sir David Spedding--Head of MI6--was ordered to organise the murder of Diana, Princess of Wales and her friend Dodi Al Fayed. 

    David Spedding died recently. I could not find an article about his death, sorry. 

    These are the 3 agents that were named by the EIR: 

    Richard David Spearman--Chief of staff for Sir David Spedding. He was given an assignment and moved to Paris two weeks prior to the murder of Diana, Princess of Wales and Dodi Al Fayed. 

    Nicholas John Andrew Langman--Principal assistant to Richard Spearman. He was also involved with Spedding in the murder. 

    Richard Billing Dearlove--the incoming Head of MI6 in September 1999--was in Paris two weeks before the Aug. 31, 1997 crash. 

    The GLOBE says of William: 

    "He is now sure that his mother lived in fear of a ruthless group of conspirators who believed that she was a danger to the British throne and was close to bringing down the monarchy. 

    "Whether his grandfather was one of the plotters or not, he can't prove. 

    "But he believes that Philip wanted something to happen to Diana, and these political hit men took it from there." 

    In the article written by the EIR, they mention an editorial written by the STAR tabloid. 

    ROYALS ORDERED DI'S DEATH 

    PRINCESS Di was killed by British intelligence agents on orders from the top of the royal family, claim top_secret new bombshell documents.


    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/RUMORMILLNEWS/message/12745

    The new GLOBE article ends with: 

    "William will get to the bottom of it - even if he has to personally poke his finger into 
    his granddad's face and accuse him." 

    Most of the information that is published in the GLOBE article has been known and published since 1998 or 1999. What makes the GLOBE article compelling is the recent SENSATIONAL release of NEW information about 

    SECRET NSA TAPES COULD PROVIDE SENSATIONAL TESTIMONY TO SUPPORT PRINCESS DIANA'S DRAMATIC LETTER


    http://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/forum.cgi?read=38946

    This revelation by Gordon Thomas... a writer who I believe is only as good as his sources... but there is ample evidence outside of Gordon Thomas, which proves to me that the NSA tapes exist. 

    However, Thomas makes that claim there are "seven tapes. Each is the length of a Hollywood blockbuster. But if made public - say London intelligence sources - no movie could have their impact." 

    Thomas says that Diana is now known to have made these tapes months before her death. 

    "The tapes were shot in March, 1997, five months before her death. Diana sat 
    before a VHS video camera in the main drawing room of her home, Kensington Palace,, and spoke in all for 12 hours over a period of ten days." 

    Thomas says that "only one other person knew she had made the tapes, Dodi al-Fayed. His father, Mohammed al-Fayed, confirmed he wants the Royal Coroner, Dr Michael Burgess, to listen to the tapes - and compare them with the 1,050 intercepts NSA made later that year. " 

    Mohammed al-Fayed has sued the NSA in order to receive copies of the tapes. 

    The fact that the GLOBE has re-published this information makes me think that the "war" I have talked about -- the one between the Factions - may be getting ready to break out into the public. 

    It's my belief that the Bush Administration could care less about the Queen and her problems. The Queen is only kept in place by the New World Order. Without the backing of the NWO, the monarchy in England would go the way of the rest of the world's monarchies... in the dustbin of history!! 

    If the Bush administration releases the NSA tapes, will the NWO continue to back the English royal family, or will it allow the Royals to fall on their own swords? 

    It's well known that the two factions of the CIA control the tabloids. It seems to me that the GLOBE has just fired a warning shot across the bow of the NWO. It will be interesting to see what else surfaces in the coming weeks!




    Di's hoard of secret videos destroyed

    Secret confessional videos made by Diana, Princess of Wales - which would have caused huge embarrassment to the royal family if they had been made public - have been destroyed.

    Di's hoard of secret videos destroyed

    London Observer
    Secret confessional videos made by Diana, Princess of Wales - which would have caused huge embarrassment to the royal family if they had been made public - have been destroyed. 

    Royal sources say the videos, recorded by a former BBC cameraman, who is now believed to be living abroad, were seized when detectives raided the home of Paul Burrell, Diana's former butler, in Cheshire two years ago. 

    The videos featured an emotional Diana discussing her life following her divorce from Prince Charles and an allegation that a courtier close to a senior royal raped one of his male colleagues. 

    This is the same allegation that Diana reputedly recorded on the infamous audio tape whose whereabouts is now the subject of a media frenzy. 

    On the audio tape the princess recorded George Smith, a former aide to Charles, alleging that he was raped by a senior courtier. Smith is also recorded saying he has seen the same courtier involved in a sex act with a member of the royal family. 

    The audio tape was among a number of items which Diana called her 'crown jewels', kept in a mahogany box that her sister, Lady Sarah McCorquodale, had asked Burrell to look after. 

    Until now the whereabouts of the videos, which contained a series of character assassinations of each royal, had remained as mysterious as the location of the audio tape. Now well-placed sources say the videos were handed to a third party and have been destroyed. 

    The news will intensify speculation on the whereabouts of the audio tape which is still thought to exist and is said by royal sources to constitute a 'ticking time-bomb'. Speculation has focused on whether Burrell has the tape, something that he has always denied. 

    However, during his trial, a royal protection officer recalled seeing Burrell remove a mahogany box in the early hours of one morning soon after Diana's death. The box itself was eventually returned to McCorquodale, minus its contents. 

    As a furore blew up around the publication of Burrell's book, A Royal Duty, the former butler hinted last week that he had more material that could damage the royal family, again triggering speculation about where the tape is. 

    Detective Chief Inspector Maxine de Brunner who was among the police who raided Burrell's home, recalls a meeting on 17 May 2001 with Fiona Shackleton, Charles's lawyer, and McCorquodale, during which the tape's whereabouts were discussed. 

    De Brunner recalled that Shackleton said: 'I know all about the rape [tape]. I was asked to make it go away - it was one of the lowest points in my professional career.' 

    When Shackleton then asked who had the tape, McCorquodale replied: 'Paul Burrell has it.' De Brunner was concerned about Shackleton's comments that she had been asked to 'make it go away' and told her superiors there might have been an attempt to suppress Smith's rape allegation - a claim he later retracted. 

    However Smith, who now works in a hospital in South Wales, repeated his story in the Mail on Sunday a year ago. Last week Smith told the paper he hoped the contents of the tape would not be made public. 'It would have terrible consequences,' he said. 

    In a sign that Clarence House is determined to put the matter behind it once and for all, Princes William and Harry issued an unprecedented joint appeal to Burrell not to make further revelations. William is to meet his mother's former aide soon in what palace insiders say represents an attempt to establish the whereabouts of the tape, the last remaining link to the rape allegation now that the videos have been destroyed and Smith has taken a vow of silence. 

    Smith's original allegation - ridiculed by senior courtiers - nevertheless presented Charles's aides with a serious dilemma. As Shackleton observed in a letter on 14 November 1996, setting out Smith's generous redundancy package: 'I suspect the bottom line in all this is that the [royal] household is caught over a barrel. Regardless of the accuracy or otherwise of George's allegations it would not presumably want those allegations to appear in print.' 

    The seeds of the current furore, which has caused acute consternation at Clarence House, were sown on 7 October 1996 when Smith walked into Hounslow police station in west London and said a man had threatened him with a gun as he made his way home. 

    Distressed and at times rambling incoherently, Smith cut a sorry figure to the officers who heard his claim. A former Army corporal, he had served in the Falklands and was traumatised by seeing friends burnt on HMS Sir Galahad, on which 50 guardsmen died as it was attacked by Argentine jets in June 1982. He became a heavy drinker and suffered mental illness. 

    Despite doubts about the veracity of his claim, police officers visited Smith's home and studied local closed-circuit TV footage. The footage revealed nothing to substantiate Smith's claim. 

    Here Smith's story might have been consigned to a yellowing file in the police station if he hadn't then told the officers he had been raped by a senior courtier. He recalled how one afternoon he had Sunday lunch at the courtier's house and had quaffed gin and tonics and champagne before falling asleep on a sofa. He awoke to find that his trousers had been pulled down and he had been sexually assaulted. 

    Smith later retracted this allegation, saying his alleged attacker was 'too powerful' for him to pursue it, but he repeated it to Diana on tape a few months later. 

    Whether the story is fact or fiction, the tape's existence continues to haunt the monarchy. One well-placed source, familiar with its contents, said: 'The royal family has to make a decision. If Burrell has the tape, do they try to buy him off or manage the explosion themselves? 

    'I am reminded of what Kissinger said: "If it's going to come out at the end, it may as well come out at the beginning."'


    Court fight over Diana videos:

    The royal family today faces a deepening crisis after the emergence of up to 20 secret videos in which Princess Diana lays bare her troubled marriage to Prince Charles



    Lady Diana's Secret Video Diary Reveals Her Grave Concerns About 'Assassination by Motor Vehicle':

    Britain's senior intelligence service, MI6, has briefed the Queen about secret video cassettes Princess Diana made three months after she wrote the letter in which she predicted she would be murdered in a car crash made to look like an "accident



    Princess Diana Predicted Her Own Assassination

    Paul Joseph Watson

    British newspapers today broke the astounding story of how Princess Diana wrote that she would be killed in an incident made to look like a car accident ten months before her death.

    The princess predicted: “This particular phase in my life is the most dangerous.” She said "XXXXXXXXXXX is planning ‘an accident’ in my car, brake failure and serious head injury in order to make the path clear for Charles to marry”.

    The blanked out 'xxxxxxx' is very likely to be MI5/MI6, who also recently did the dirty work of finishing off David Kelly.

    When Paul Burrell, Diana's former butler first hit the headlines last year I knew he still had something to say about Diana's death. It was likely that Burrell sought to wrap himself in as much publicity as possible to protect himself against a similar fate.

    Of course we've known for years that Diana's death couldn't have been anything but an assassination.

    - The unscheduled journey through the symbolic Pont de L'Alma tunnel (an ancient Pagan sacrificial site) took Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Al Fayed AWAY FROM their intended destination, Dodi's flat.

    - Just before the car entered the tunnel every police radio in Paris mysteriously died, preventing a quick response which could have saved Diana's life.

    - Just before the car entered the tunnel every security camera in the tunnel mysteriously died, preventing us from ever seeing footage of what caused the crash.

    - Eyewitnesses reported snipers and gunfire within the tunnel.
    These are just a few snippets from a mountain of evidence that this was an old-school hit.
    Diana was killed because she was pregnant with Dodi's child and the British Royal Family didn't want an Arab in their sacred bloodline. Diana herself remarked to reporters that there would be 'a big surprise' from her a few days before her death.






    US Spy Tapes Reveal Diana Was Pregnant 

    by GORDON THOMAS

    EXPLOSIVE tapes on the secret life of Princess Diana will prove that she was pregnant and intended to marry Dodi Al Fayed, it was claimed last night. 

    American secret agents regularly monitored Diana's conversations and collated 1,000 secret documents using its "spy in the sky", the National Security Agency. 

    They were obtained by its Echelon satellite surveillance system and contain highly sensitive material including her marriage plans, her views on Prince Philip, who was known to be highly critical of her, and new details of her love affair with James Hewitt. Now, lawyers acting for Mohamed Al Fayed are trying to obtain the tapes through America's Freedom of Information Act. 

    They hope to present the evidence at Diana's inquest, which is expected to take place next year. 

    The covert monitoring was controlled from the ultra-secret NSA base at Menwith Hill in the north of England during the last weeks of Diana's affair with Dodi. 

    A spokesman for Dodi's father, Mohamed Al Fayed, the millionaire owner of Harrods, said: "Mr Al Fayed believes that those intercepts will reveal conversations in which Princess Diana discussed her engagement to Dodi and her pregnancy.



    Of course, this wasn't the only reason. Diana was a painful thorn in the side of the elitists with her ability to take any issue and immediately bring it to the forefront of public attention. In a way she was like David Kelly, a disgruntled former employee who knew too much and had too big a chip on her shoulders to be tolerated.

    I look forward to the long-awaited inquest and further revelations from the brave Paul Burrell to further destroy the establishment media's wild and unsusbstantiated theory that Diana's death was an accident caused by a drunk driver.

    Keep your eyes open and turn the television off.

    Court fight over Diana videos:

    The royal family today faces a deepening crisis after the emergence of up to 20 secret videos in which Princess Diana lays bare her troubled marriage to Prince Charles.


    Court fight over Diana videos

    Christian Science Monitor
    The royal family today faces a deepening crisis after the emergence of up to 20 secret videos in which Princess Diana lays bare her troubled marriage to Prince Charles. 

    The tapes could be shown as part of a legal battle in a dispute over their ownership. 

    The latest row centres on about 21 hours of footage shot in the early Nineties by Diana's voice coach Peter Settelen, who was training the Princess to speak in public.

    Should Mr Settelen win the case, he could make millions if he decides to sell them to a broadcaster. 

    To establish rightful ownership, the videos will almost certainly have to be played in court, meaning Diana would effectively testify from beyond the grave about her contempt for Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles. 

    Legal action over ownership could start as early as Wednesday if police do not return the tapes to the voice coach. 

    Mr Settelen, 52, of Isleworth, insists he has copyright of the videos and is preparing to take the case to the High Court. But Diana's family say the tapes belong to them and want them destroyed. 

    The tapes were seized by police in January-2001 when they raided the home of Diana's former butler Paul Burrell. They have been held at a secret location ever since. 

    Last night, after a year of legal wrangling over ownership, Mr Settelen issued a statement, which is effectively an ultimatum to police to hand over what he says is his property. 

    The court will need to establish whether Diana was solely acting out her elocution lessons or providing a testament about her life. Legal sources say that the only way this point can be established is by watching the videos. 

    Lady Sarah McCorquodale, Diana's sister and executor of her will, is believed to be one of only a handful of people who have seen the videos since they were recorded. They are understood to show the Princess at her lowest ebb, miserable and downcast. 

    Mr Settelen's solicitor, Marcus Rutherford, has confirmed that legal proceedings will begin on Wednesday if the tapes are not returned. 

    "We want this matter resolved as early as possible," he said. 

    At first it was believed that there were only six tapes, but lawyers acting for Mr Settelen believe the Metropolitan Police are holding up to 20. 

    The content of the tapes was regarded as so sensitive that the prosecution agreed not to use them in Mr Burrell's Old Bailey trial, which collapsed last year. 

    Mr Settelen regards the tapes as an intimate record of his professional relationship with the Princess. He insists that he will keep them confidential despite their huge potential value. 
    A Scotland Yard spokesman said any dispute over the ownership of the tapes would have to be settled in court, and added: "Negotiations are continuing to establish the ownership of a number of items in our possession."


    Lady Diana's Secret Video Diary Reveals Her Grave Concerns About 'Assassination by Motor Vehicle':

    Britain's senior intelligence service, MI6, has briefed the Queen about secret video cassettes Princess Diana made three months after she wrote the letter in which she predicted she would be murdered in a car crash made to look like an "accident."






    Lady Diana's Secret Video Diary Reveals Her Grave Concerns About 'Assassination by Motor Vehicle'


    American Free Press
    Britain's senior intelligence service, MI6, has briefed the Queen about secret video cassettes Princess Diana made three months after she wrote the letter in which she predicted she would be murdered in a car crash made to look like an "accident." She and her lover, Dodi al-Fayed, died in a car crash in Paris in August, 1997.

    The royal briefing followed interviews with several British expatriates in California by a senior intelligence officer.

    One of those questioned was involved in the London video-production industry at the time Diana made her video diaries. Another is known to have had "a close relationship" with a male member of the Kensington Palace staff when Diana lived there. The interviews came after MI6 became aware of Paul Burrell's new book. It may become the subject of a breach of copyright action centering on the letters it contains. 

    One security service source said her video diaries clearly show her "obsession" of meeting a stage-managed death at the hands of one of the intelligence agencies she believed were shadowing her every move since her divorce from Prince Charles.

    Evidence to support her fears has been reinforced by the admission of America's "spy in the sky" agency, the National Security Agency, NSA, that it holds some 1,050 transcripts of conversations Diana made in the last weeks of her life.

    But a former MI6 officer, Richard Tomlinson has also claimed that, while working for the service, he saw a 
    document "that was a plan to murder the Serbian leader, Slobodan Milosevic-a plan that has unsettling parallels to the way Di and Dodi died. The MI6 document stated that the 'accident' should happen in a tunnel where the chance of injury is high."

    The NSA tapes are stored in a climate-controlled vault at NSA headquarters at Fort George Meade outside Washington.

    The agency controls a worldwide eavesdropping system normally only used against America's enemies.

    Some of the taped conversations are said to refer to Diana's campaign for a global ban on landmines.

    Dodi's father, Mohammed al-Fayed, the millionaire owner of Harrods, has waged an unsuccessful battle in the U.S. courts to obtain copies of the tapes.

    He believes they will confirm his own fears of "intelligence service complicity" in the deaths of Diana and his son.

    Ari Ben-Menashe, a former Mossad intelligence officer, who was approached by Mr Al-Fayed for help after the deaths said, "there is no doubt there was an intelligence presence in the run-up to their deaths".

    Such claims will fuel the demand for a full inquiry into the events around the deaths.

    The royal coroner, Dr. Michael Burgess, has al ready indicated he will hold an inquest. But no date has been set. At the earliest it could be sometime next year.

    Friends of Diana have indicated the full truth may only emerge if there is a Hutton-style enquiry.

    Diana filmed her secret video diaries on a camera her former voice coach, Peter Sutherland, gave her.

    But he has no knowledge that the camera was used by Diana to make her video diaries.

    Originally, he had made six tapes with Diana to help improve her confidence when speaking in public.

    Sutherland has been trying to retrieve those tapes. Their existence emerged after the collapse of the Old Bailey trial of Paul Burrell last year.

    He was acquitted on all charges of stealing Diana's belongings after the queen made a dramatic intervention in the case.


    Diana 'feared car accident plot'

    Princess Diana feared the brakes of her car were going to be tampered with, 10 months before she died in a crash in Paris, her former butler has claimed.

    DIANA LETTER SENSATION: 'THEY WILL TRY TO KILL ME'

    PRINCESS DIANA claimed there was a plot to kill her in a car crash in a handwritten letter only 10 months before she died. She gave it to her butler Paul Burrell with orders that he should keep it as "insurance" for the future.

    DIANA confided in a royal biographer that she feared for her life just two months before her death. Ingrid Seward was told by Diana that she felt her life had been in danger, in a heart-to-heart chat at Kensington Palace.


    Royal Conspiracy: Princess Diana Names Her Killer

    Did Princess Diana know who was plotting to kill her? Diana gave a handwritten letter to her butler Paul Burrell, 10 months before she died, to keep as "insurance" for the future. In the letter, revealed in Burrell's book "A Royal Duty," the princess knew she was marked as an "inconvenient woman."

    PRINCESS Diana believed Prince Charles wanted her killed in an accident when she was plagued by anxiety and feared for her safety.She told of her worries in her now infamous note which she handed to butler Paul Burrell as "insurance" on the day she wrote it in October 1996, 10 months before she died in a Paris car crash.Burrell censored the note when he disclosed its existence in his book last year by blanking the words "my husband" from the text.


    The Murder of Princess Diana
    • Special Report
       
      [The] death of Princess Diana may have its nexus more to the ambulance ride and the treatment during that ride than to the accident itself. With billions of people throughout the planet interested in her death and the cause thereof, it is a deep mystery of why the focus of investigators and media circumvent this critical area of inquiry, which paradoxically seemed to be a mystery to the French Interior Minister and the Police Chief of Paris as well. Our mystery ties in as to why a VIP may have been traveling without a police escort in an ambulance taking, without acceptable explanation, one hour to get to a hospital. The answers have been to transport the injured Diana safely and to "avoid bumps." In that case, it seems every other ambulance throughout the world operates on a different basis, in recognizing a need to get an injured person quickly to a hospital; here, where a team of doctors, awaiting Diana's arrival, may have saved her. To our minds, and the minds of any reasonable man or woman, the one hour trip is inexcusable and carries compelling questions which demand detailed answers.

      All this is reminiscent of the case of the murdered weapons inspector David Kelly. The British establishment simply engaging in the usual sham of investigating itself.
       
    • Joe Vialls: Prince Charles Implicated in Murder of Princess Diana
       
      Logic dictates Princess Di was deliberately frightened into writing the incriminating letter before her death, but science suggests that she did not write the letter at all.
       
    • Document says Diana's car was replacement
      (That web page was "disappeared" but is available here.)
       
      The car in the crash that killed Princess Diana in Paris was a last-minute replacement either meant as a media diversion or because the vehicle she was supposed to take failed to start, according to British government documents released Tuesday [2005-03-15].
       
    • Xymphora on Henri Paul's mysterious payments
       
     
      

    So here's a possible scenario: Diana was (possibly) pregnant by Dodi. The US/British power elite either knew this (perhaps her doctor's office was bugged) or were afraid it might be true. The prospect of someone of Arab descent (and perhaps a Muslim too) being in line to the British throne was anathema to the racist British establishment, and the Americans were concerned about what they saw as Diana's populist political activities (campaigning for an abolition of land mines and so on, with maybe the international arms trade targetted next) so the decision was made to eliminate her. The Mercedes in which she was supposed to leave the Ritz Hotel with Dodi failed to start (as intended by the plotters) and a replacement was produced. The brakes on the replacement car had been sabotaged. Henri Paul, their driver, sped off, followed by paparazzi, one of whom was in contact by phone with the driver of a white Fiat. The Fiat entered the Pont d'Alma Tunnel as Diana's car approached it. Somewhere in the tunnel, with the white Fiat just in front of the Mercedes, a powerful flashgun, aimed at Paul's car, was set off. This blinded Paul, and he hit the brakes, which did not work properly, ensuring that the car would crash. But the crash did not kill Diana. Much to the chagrin of the plotters, she was still alive. An ambulance (previously arranged by the plotters) was brought up and took her away, allegedly taking her to the Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital, 4 miles away. During this trip (which may or may not have involved an abortion) something was done to ensure that Diana would be dead on arrival at the hospital, or would die shortly afterward. The potential problem was thus removed.

    Diana, cause of death: ambulance ride which took one hour to travel 6 kilometers, 4 miles, to hospital. Why has no one focused on this platform of inquiry?
    1. Assuming driver, Henri Paul, was at fault due to intoxication, accept the reality that Princess Diana was not dead after the accident. She was very much alive and talking.
    2. The hospital to which she was taken, Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital, was 4 miles (6 kilometers) from the accident, occurring after midnight on a holiday weekend, with many away and the city streets quiet.
    3. Accept the reality that there has been no focus by the media on the at minimum, one hour, ambulance ride to travel 4 miles.
    4. Accept the reality that the time she slipped into the throes of death was during the one hour plus ambulance ride to the hospital.
    5. Le Parisien and Reuters reported that during the ambulance trip, the ambulance stopped to give her a massive injection of adrenaline.
    6. Le Parisien and Reuters further reported that the Interior Minister, Jean-Pierre Chevenement, and the police chief for Paris, France, Phillippe Massoni, two of the most powerful figures in the land, were mystified about the whereabouts of the ambulance due to its failure to timely reach the hospital.
    7. Assuming that ambulances in Paris, France in 1997 have radios or phones, answer why two men, among the most powerful in France, couldn't pick up a telephone and get an answer to the mystery.
    8. Further, consider whether the ambulance was sent without a police escort, and, if so, why.
    9. Subsequently the hospital asserted Diana received no injection of adrenaline during the ambulance ride. Was she treated at the hospital, upon her arrival, without full knowledge of what transpired during the ambulance ride? What did transpire? At the hospital was she (again) injected with adrenaline? Who was on the ambulance? What happened during an inordinate one hour trip with a VIP on board?
    10. Why isn't the media actively and aggressively pursuing this important matter? If a parent found out it took one hour for an ambulance with his or her child to travel four miles after midnight to a hospital, would the parent be justified in being quite angry and entitled to know what happened. If that child was Prince William, would the focus of the inquiry be different than it apparently is with Diana? Would the English newspapers, and others throughout the world, declare: 'One Hour to Get to the Hospital!'
    CONCLUSION: Based on the above, one can fairly assert that the death of Princess Diana may have its nexus more to the ambulance ride and the treatment during that ride than to the accident itself. With billions of people throughout the planet interested in her death and the cause thereof, it is a deep mystery of why the focus of investigators and media circumvent this critical area of inquiry, which paradoxically seemed to be a mystery to the French Interior Minister and the Police Chief of Paris as well. Our mystery ties in as to why a VIP may have been traveling without a police escort in an ambulance taking, without acceptable explanation, one hour to get to a hospital. The answers have been to transport the injured Diana safely and to "avoid bumps." In that case, it seems every other ambulance throughout the world operates on a different basis, in recognizing a need to get an injured person quickly to a hospital; here, where a team of doctors, awaiting Diana's arrival, may have saved her. To our minds, and the minds of any reasonable man or woman, the one hour trip is inexcusable and carries compelling questions which demand detailed answers.

    EIR Reveals How Diana Murder Cover-up Has Turned Deadly

    June 30, 2000 (EIRNS)--The July 7, 2000 issue ofExecutive 
    Intelligence Review
     features a detailed report on the mysterious death of French paparazzo James Andanson, one of the pivotal figures in the Aug. 31, 1997 fatal car crash in Paris, that claimed the lives of Princess Diana, Dodi Fayed, and Henri Paul. Andanson's body was found in a desolate forest in the south of France, burned beyond recognition, on May 5, 2000.

    A week after his bizarre death, which French authorities have attempted to label a "suicide," three armed, masked men broke into the Paris offices of the Sipa Agency, the photography agency where Andanson was working at the time of his death, and stole computer disks, laptops, and cameras. The three men were believed to be agents of the French secret service, hunting for possibly incriminating photographs of the crash site that Andanson may have been hiding.

    The EIR story details the fact that Andanson, who owned a white Fiat Uno at the time of the 1997 crash, was a prime suspect in the Diana and Dodi wrongful deaths, yet French investigators accepted his alibi that he was not in Paris at the time of the crash. Tests of the paint and bumper scratches on his Fiat matched those on the side of the Mercedes carrying Diana and Dodi, according to forensic reports contained in the files of chief investigating magistrate, Herve Stephan. EIR also uncovered other break-ins and surpression of crucial evidence by both British and French intelligence services

    Nearly three years after the fatal crash, the true circumstances are still being covered up, and the EIRstory breaks new ground in exposing that cover-up. This story is "must" reading for anyone who has been attempting to get to the bottom of the Diana-Dodi deaths. As one specialist told EIR, "The death of Andanson may very well signal a new, deadly turn in the cover-up of the death of Princess Diana. It is reminiscent of the pile of corpses that littered the landscape following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, when scores of individuals with knowledge about the President's

    US Spy Tapes Reveal Diana Was Pregnant
        by GORDON THOMAS
    EXPLOSIVE tapes on the secret life of Princess Diana will prove that she was pregnant and intended to marry Dodi Al Fayed, it was claimed last night.

    American secret agents regularly monitored Diana's conversations and collated 1,000 secret documents using its "spy in the sky", the National Security Agency.

    They were obtained by its Echelon satellite surveillance system and contain highly sensitive material including her marriage plans, her views on Prince Philip, who was known to be highly critical of her, and new details of her love affair with James Hewitt. Now, lawyers acting for Mohamed Al Fayed are trying to obtain the tapes through America's Freedom of Information Act.

    They hope to present the evidence at Diana's inquest, which is expected to take place next year.

    The covert monitoring was controlled from the ultra-secret NSA base at Menwith Hill in the north of England during the last weeks of Diana's affair with Dodi.

    A spokesman for Dodi's father, Mohamed Al Fayed, the millionaire owner of Harrods, said: "Mr Al Fayed believes that those intercepts will reveal conversations in which Princess Diana discussed her engagement to Dodi and her pregnancy.

    Diana - was it an accident or was she killed?

    Repose en paix Henri
    Tes amis ne sont dupes

    "Rest in peace, Henri, your friends have not been fooled" -- words on floral tribute at the funeral of Henri Paul (English trans)

    "One day I'm going to go up in a helicopter and not come back down" -- Princess Diana

    The conspiracy theorists have been in overdrive. I make make no apology for adding to their output. I have a special reason for doing so - my theories pre-date the death of Princess Diana. About two years before her death a thought came into my mind that Diana would be killed. This would be no assassin's bullet as JFK or John Lennon, but an accident. I had in mind a skiing accident or a tragedy at sea. The thought must have lodged deep in my mind as it troubled me for weeks, then gradually faded away. Looking back I now see I must have had a premonition.

    There can be only two reasons for her death, an accident or she was deliberately killed.

    An accident can not be ruled out. Accidents happen to the best of us. Even if there was a plot to kill Diana, it could have been pre-empted by an accident.

    If it was an accident, it still deserves explanation as all accidents have causes. I am not familiar with the road tunnel alongside the Seine, but I have to ask myself how did the driver lose control? Is there a sharp bend, did he hit something or skid, did the car have a mechanical fault (if so why?), was the driver drunk or in some way intoxicated? These questions can be answered by simple examination and investigation. Dodi's bodyguard is the key to many. The driver being drunk seems at odds with his reputation.

    Accident or not, we may never know, but the whole affair has a distinctly uneasy and messy feel to it.

    Mid-November 1997, two British Sunday tabloid newspapers published a survey that showed that a very high proportion of those surveyed felt the death of Diana was no accident and that she had been killed to silence her. The methodology used left much to be desired, but with a figure of 98% the results could not be easily dismissed and if nothing else showed the general feeling of disquiet and unease over the death of Princess Diana.

    If not an accident, then part of a conspiracy, if so by whom, and for what reason?

    Some of this I can answer by going back two years. My initial thoughts on this must have had a very strong impact as they haunted me for weeks and weeks, only very slowly did they fade away. I almost contacted Diana, but what could either of us have done?

    The wildest of ideas can have their basis in reality. This is how creative thought occurs and scientific advances are made. A wild thought occurs, logic is used to build a bridge back to reality. If the bridge can be built, then we explore where it has taken us.

    This I did, but first the premonition. Diana was to be killed, it wasn't to be an obvious murder but faked to look like an accident. How, what, or when I did not know? I constructed possible scenarios of a swimming or boating accident or possibly an accident on the ski slopes.

    But why? Was there a rationale behind these thoughts?

    Unfortunately yes. Diana was seen as a loose canon, a member of the establishment, but outside of the establishment, a danger to all concerned. Diana in her own words referred to her time as a member of the Royal Family as the "dark ages".

    Diana herself reinforced and confirmed my own fears. In her now infamous interview, where she asked to be the Queen of Peoples Hearts, she talked of her fears and paranoia, that her phones were tapped and 'they' were out to get her. You don't have to be paranoid for them to be out to get you, but it helps.

    Some years earlier when Andrew Morton's book Diana - Her True Story hit the streets it was met with universal derision and condemnation. Andrew Morton himself was viciously attacked. What was his crime? His crime was to let out the truth. Morton let it be known that his sources were close to the Princess, strong hints were dropped that the Princess approved. The Palace launched a search for the 'mole' who had briefed Morton, Morton had his office burgled, files rifled and a camera stolen. As events unfurled, especially Diana's infamous interview, it became clear that Morton was revealing the truth. The bombshell had yet to be dropped. A few weeks after her death, Morton revealed that the source for his book had been none other than Diana herself, she had supplied him with tapes and corrected the original manuscript.

    Morton dropped his bombshell as he launched an updated version of his book. Once again the establishment went into overdrive to condemn Morton. In the US death threats were issued. Morton's timing may have been tacky, motivated more by greed than setting straight the public record, but if anyone had a right to publish a book on Diana it was Morton. This attempt at gagging is reminiscent of the secrecy surrounding the Duke of Windsor, all material on which is embargoed for 100 years.

    Following her estrangement from Charles and the Royal Family, Diana was clearly seen as a danger. Would she spill the beans and cause permanent damage, striking at the very heart of the British Establishment. From now on it was Diana who was calling the shots, and she continued to do so right up to her death. She demanded, and got a multi-million pound divorce settlement. Things began to settle down.

    Several months before her death, Diana seemed to grow in stature. It was as though she fully realised for the first time the power she had. Who but Diana could crook her finger and have Henry Kissinger at her side one day, and be seen comforting Aids victims or a woman in Bosnia on another. Her arms around Elton John at the funeral of Gianni Versace will be fixed forever in the world's psyche.

    The President of the USA only thinks he has power, it was Diana who held the real power. The public reaction to her death showed to what degree her influence had spread across the world.

    Diana in Angola Several months before her death Diana became involved in the campaign to ban landmines. Hilary Clinton had been pushing hard, but got nowhere. Maybe for the very first time realising the extent of her powers Diana offered to help. Visits to Angola, and Bosnia, a well publicised gala in the States. Governments around the world fell into line, Clinton who had steadfastly opposed a ban had no choice but in bad grace to climb aboard the bandwagon before it left without him.

    In a press interview following her Angola trip, Diana expressed shock at what she found, and that she had found new fulfilment as a champion of the fight to ban landmines, a crusade she hoped to take to trouble spots around the globe. Her response to critics was to brush their comments aside as 'merely a distraction' and vow not to change course.

    A few days before her death Diana was reported by a French journalist (Le Monde) as regarding the position of the previous Conservative government as hopeless. These remarks were immediately retracted by Diana's staff at Kensington Place, the journalist steadfastly clung to her report. Why should the remarks be withdrawn? If Diana believed in her campaign, which clearly she did, then her remarks would have only been an honest assessment, if anything a gross understatement. To withdraw those remarks, which were seen as correct, would only discredit herself and her position.

    Politicians who had been baying for her blood, grew ever more strident. What was this woman doing meddling in politics, why didn't she stick to old ladies and little children.

    Two weeks before her death the pictures of Dodi al-Fayed and Diana started to appear. A thought went through my mind 'Oh no, she has just signed her own death warrant'. Two weeks later and the rest was history, Diana lay dead in Paris.

    Mohamed al-Fayed, the father of Dodi, is the arch-villain of the British Establishment. For years he had been painted in the British media as an evil, cunning, corrupt Egyptian. Here was the man who with relative ease had bribed Members of Parliament and brought down the Conservative Government. The hatred was reported as mutual. Here was a man who had befriended Diana, another person outside of the establishment. Would they pool their resources, was there no depth to which this man would not go? Worse was to come. Looking to the future, would the man be present at the coronation of a future King as his step-grandfather? A future King, head of the Christian Church, defender of the faith, to have a Moslem as a half-brother? Would Diana follow her close friend's example, who had recently married a Pakistani cricketer, and turn into a Moslem? The establishment's worst nightmares were about to come true.

    The source of the al-Fayed family wealth has oft been questioned and never satisfactorily answered. This was brought to a head by the bitter battle for control and ownership of Harrods. Mohamed al-Fayed has family links, through his ex-wife, to Adnan Khashoggi, a Middle East arms dealer and possible CIA asset.

    This image of Mohamed al-Fayed portrayed in the British press was not that seen by the people who queued for many hours to sign the books of condolence, to them he was a man whose staff brought them food and drink whilst they patiently waited, a man whose son had brought their princess some happiness in her last days on earth, a man who had lost a much loved son, a man who their hearts and sympathy stretched out to almost as much as it did to their beloved princess.

    Even the press backed off for a while, expressing their rather guarded sympathy for a man who had just lost his son. The truce was short lived however, no sooner was Diana buried than the dirt on al-Fayed started to reappear in the press.

    Yes, it could have a been a very clever publicity stunt, to bring refreshments out, but if it was why did no-one else do it?

    If it was murder, who did it, who hatched the plot?

    This is not too difficult to answer. A shadowy, dark core at the centre of the establishment, accountable to no one and totally out of control.

    Eisenhower was the first to speak of a military-industrial complex out of control. During the talks to defuse the Cuban missile crisis, Kruschev confessed of military forces outside of his control, JFK admitted of the same problem. Kruschev was removed as too soft, JFK assassinated and replaced by the corrupt Johnson who stepped up the Vietnam war. Nixon entered into detente with China and wound down the Vietnam War, shortly afterwards, at the height of his popularity he was brought down by Watergate.

    The intelligence services destabilised, then brought down the Wilson Labour Government.

    The intelligent services in the UK have been repeatedly exposed as incompetent and out of control. Unlike the US there have been no public enquiries into their activities, there is no public accountability and it is only in recent years that official acknowledgement has been given of their very existence.

    Only weeks before the death of Diana, David Shayler, an agent of MI5, the UK internal security service, went public on the incompetence of MI5 and how it had been monitoring important public figures including Jack Straw, Home Secretary (the man nominally in charge of MI5) and Ted Heath, the former Prime Minister. The agent was not leaking any secure information or putting operations at risk, he was simply exposing malpractice and calling from within for greater accountability. To his shame, Jack Straw instead of applauding the man had him silenced.

    Silencing Shayler did not shut up the affair. A second MI5 agent, his girlfriend Annie Machon confirmed his story. Both were now on the run in Europe, hiding from the wrath of MI5. Some weeks later, exactly two weeks after the funeral of Diana, Annie Machon returned to England to be arrested at Gatwick airport. The manner of her arrest, was described in The Mail on Sunday (21 September 1997), who had published the initial revelations, as completely over the top, more fitting for a major terrorist or drugs trafficker than someone who had highlighted the failings and shortcomings of the British intelligence services.

    It does not take six burly men to arrest one young female of slender build who has returned to the country of her own volition, not that is unless the intention is to intimidate. The frightening scene of the arrest brought back echoes of KGB thugs intimidating dissidents, as did the smashing of the flat Annie Machon shared with David Shayler. Three weeks before her arrest, the security forces used the cover of a search warrant to smash up the flat that Annie Machon shared with David Shayler. If actions speak louder than words then someone was trying to put across a very strong message.

    Sunday 2 November 1997, The Mail on Sunday published the most damning revelations yet from ex-MI5 agent David Shayler on the level of incompetence at MI5. As a consequence of internal bungling MI5 failed to prevent the terrorist bombing of the Israeli Embassy in London, and failed to even notify Mossad of what they knew. There was then a crude attempt at a cover up.

    Monday 3 November 1997, ex-MI6 agent Richard Tomlinson appeared before Bow Street magistrates' court charged with offences under the Official Secrets Act. He was denied bail and remanded into custody for a week. He had been arrested at his home a couple of days before by Special Branch (the police wing of the Intelligence Services) and subjected to two days of interrogation at Charing Cross high security police station. His 'crime' was to attempt to publish a book on MI6. An injunction had prevented publication within the UK, rumours were circulating that he was about to publish in Australia. His mistake was not to have followed the the example of Peter Wright, ex-MI5 agent and author of Spycatcher published a decade earlier, and decamped to Australia.

    A week later, 9 November 1997, The Sunday Times described how, writing from his prison cell in Brixton, Richard Tomlinson saw himself as a political prisoner and the extraordinary lengths MI6 had gone to to hunt him down. And how Tomlinson relished the opportunity from open court to expose the hypocrisy, dishonesty and mismanagement at MI6.

    On Thursday 18 December 1997, Tomlinson was sentenced at the Old Bailey to 12 months imprisonment. In passing sentence, the judge said he was doing so 'in the national interest'.

    Following his release from prison, Tomlinson was constantly harassed by the intelligence services, and eventually fled the country, even though this was a breach of his parole conditions. He now resides in Geneva. On fleeing the country Tomlinson has made a number of allegations about MI6, one of these includes a plot to assassinate President Milosevic of Yugoslavia that bears an uncanny resemblance to the death of Princess Diana.

    The security services fear Internet. Numerous scare stories are planted in the media, repeated attempts are made to ban the use of encryption. Internet is the one free media, outside of government control, outside of unwarranted interference.

    On the day following Diana's funeral The Independent on Sunday reported the case of a man who had been stitched up by MI6 (the UK foreign intelligence agency).

    Several demonstrators broke into and occupied properties belonging to British Aerospace. The police brought in, before they saw there own lawyers, a lawyer working for BAe who interviewed the demonstrators. They had requested their own lawyers, as was their right, and been denied that right. The police allegedly released the names and addresses of the protesters to BAe. The following morning, so fast did it happen, protesters found temporary injunctions served on them by BAe at their home addresses. These were followed by injunctions that imposed a life time ban on setting foot on any named BAe property (a list several pages long) or being in the vicinity of. The cost of this action by BAe was estimated by one of the lawyers acting for the defenders at a million pounds.

    A week after the funeral, The Sunday Telegraph reported the intense lobbying the Pentagon were applying to Clinton not to agree to a ban on landmines. Their worst fears were that Clinton would even agree to the dropping of the US spoiler clause that would allow exemptions where 'national interests' were at stake.

    I give these examples as illustrations, I have many more examples at my fingertips.

    Diana cartoon Diana had successfully campaigned against landmines. What next, a ban on arms to Indonesia, Turkey, a visit with Dodi to Palestinian Camps? Alarm bells were ringing very loudly.

    Coincidental with the death of Diana, an Arms Fair was taking place in Farnborough - a town known the world over as the site of the Farnborough International Airshow. To this Arms Fair some of the world's most repressive regimes were honoured guests of the UK Government - Turkey, Indonesia. On the day her death was announced they made a point of carrying on, 'business as usual' was quoted one arms dealer. All week, whilst the world expressed its grief the Arms Fair continued. Meanwhile across the country, major events were cancelled as a mark of respect. Following the funeral, millions observed a minutes silence. In Farnborough, the silence was broken by an executive jet flying into Farnborough Airfield. The merchants of death were clearly determined to give two fingers to one who had dared campaign against them.

    The response of the people of Farnborough to this shoddy behaviour was one of anger, revulsion and disgust. Letters published in the local press gave some idea of the anger that was felt.

    End of September, beginning of October, Farnborough was scheduled to host COPEX - Covert Operations Exhibition. On display and sale would be instruments of torture. Once again the world's most repressive regimes were to be honoured guests.

    Colonel Gadafy of Libya has asked the International Court of Justice in the Hague that when those responsible for the death of Diana be caught they be put on trial in Libya. The reason for what at first glance seems a strange request is that Dodi was a Libyan citizen and Gadafy's belief that both were assassinated by the British Intelligence Services. This belief has widespread acceptance in the Arab world, especially Egypt and Libya.

    It is easy to see why. A few weeks after Diana's death, an assassination attempt was made in Jordan by two Mossad agents on a prominent Hamas leader. Initially this was reported as a scuffle with two Canadian tourists. The two 'Canadian tourists' were Mossad agents holding forged Canadian passports. The incident backfired badly on Israel. In order to recover their two agents they were forced to release the spiritual leader of Hamas and dozens of Hamas terrorists.

    How did it happen?

    In the early hours of Sunday, Stephen Jessel, BBC Paris correspondence was speaking live on the BBC World Service and he was puzzled. How, he almost mused to himself did the paparazzi know Diana was in Paris at the Ritz? It was not public knowledge and he as a respected BBC correspondence was not privy to that knowledge. Earlier in the day she and Dodi had been in Sardinia. Who tipped off the paparazzi? Were they all paparazzi, or had a paparazzi been lent on? Was the chase deliberate? Was it intended to force the car to crash, if not here, then some other time, some other place? Many of the paparazzi disappeared, who were they, can those who were found at the scene shed any light on this? Was the car tampered with?

    The driver of the car was an anomaly. Why was he driving so fast? Was the car simply out of control, or was there more to it? The police report on the driver was clearly out of character with those who knew him. The security videos, and those who spoke with him and saw him before he departed on his fateful last journey, back those who speak highly of him. If in spite of all this, he was acting out of character, then why?

    Down the right-hand side of the car was a scratch and paint marks, indicating a possible brush with another car. Parts of the rear-end of a Fiat Uno were found at the crash scene, this could indicate a brush with another car or simply that the filthy French do not clean up after an accident. There are rumours floating around Paris of eyewitnesses seeing another car rapidly disappearing from the scene. One eyewitness said he saw a small black car leaving the crash scene at very high speed in what he thought were suspicious circumstances.

    The French have refused to release footage from security cameras along the route taken by the Mercedes, or to release footage from their own Ministry of Defence cameras (near the Paris Ritz).

    On Wednesday 8 October 1997, the French police announced their intention to check more than 100,000 Fiat Unos, that had been registered in and around the Paris area. It was made known that they were looking for a white Fiat Uno. This clashed with earlier rumours that the paintwork was red, blue or black, indicating, if nothing else, the degree of confusion and disinformation surrounding the case. The police also let it be known, that from the wreckage, it seemed that the Mercedes had been in collision with a Fiat Uno moments before the crash.

    An off-duty senior police office, reported being overtaken by a speeding white Fiat Uno, which then slowed and loitered at the tunnel entrance, seemingly waiting for the Mercedes. [The Mirror, Thursday 4 June 1998]

    Early June 1998, despite intense efforts by the French police, the Fiat Uno has not been found. Speculation that it has been destroyed, or is now out of the country.

    Several witnesses saw a motorcycle cut-up the Mercedes moments before the crash. They also saw a blinding flash, far more intense than a photographic flash. Speculation that this was an anti-personnel device used to disable the driver. [Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash, ITV, Wednesday, 3 June 1998]

    Many more people and vehicles are known to have been in the tunnel than have so far given themselves up.

    Laurence Pujol, ex-girlfriend of Henri Paul, who had lived with him for five years said he wasn't a heavy drinker. Alexander Wingfield, a bodyguard to Diana and Dodi, spent the two hours before the crash with Henri Paul and detected no sign of drink. He had also driven with Henri Paul in the back-up car from the airport and noted his driving as professional. A sample of the liver showed Henri Paul was not a regular drinker.

    On Tuesday 9 September 1997 the results of the third test on the driver were published. All three tests had shown the driver to have consumed high quantities of alcohol. The third test also showed that he had been taking drugs. If the tests are correct then it raises more questions. Why was his behaviour so out of character, why did no one notice?

    ITV documentary Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash (Wednesday, 3 June 1998), showed a high carbon monoxide content in Henri Paul's blood that did not correlate with his behaviour.

    Henri Paul was at the Ritz two hours before the crash. Where was he between driving from the airport and his being recalled back to the Ritz? This vital gap in his movements, hours before the fatal crash, are still not accounted for.

    The first duty of a bodyguard is to protect those in his care. Why did he not ensure the occupants of the car were wearing their seat belts? Moments before the fatal crash, Trevor Rees-Jones fastened his seat belt. Why? Trevor Rees-Jones failed to follow standard protection procedures.

    Paul Burrell, Diana's personal butler, arrived in Paris within hours of her death to collect her belongings and arrange their return to London. Though in the company of a Foreign Office official he was kept waiting for 40 minutes. He then found that all Diana's personal effects had been gone through and dispatched back to London. By whom, on whose orders, why? Neither he nor the FO official were able to obtain satisfactory answers to these questions. Paul Burrell found the experience extremely upsetting and distressing.

    These and many more questions need to be answered. Mohamed al-Fayed obviously felt something was wrong, why else did he bring in a top forensic scientist. For that he is to be applauded. I can only hope that he also has the foresight to bring in his own investigators and question all those involved. He needs to do this now whilst the evidence is fresh. Only Mohamed al-Fayed has the wealth to conduct such an investigation.

    Though al-Fayed also has a vested interest. If the driver was incapacitated, then the Ritz Hotel (as employer) and ultimately al-Fayed (as owner) are culpable. He may have other interests that are not yet apparent.

    But, even if the driver was pissed out of his brain and high as a kite, as the third autopsy would seem to indicate, this still does not let the paparazzi of the hook, as it was they who were chasing the car.

    The Sunday Telegraph (14 September 1997) reported that the bodyguard, Trevor Rees-Jones was under round-the-clock police protection on the direct orders of the chief of criminal investigations in Paris, Martine Monteil and that Mohamed al-Fayed had hired a team of investigators headed by an unnamed senior ex-Scotland Yard officer.

    Will the truth out?

    A difficult one to answer - too many people have vested interests, few, if any, of of the major players have clean hands.

    Mohamed al-Fayed (the Phoney Egyptian Pharaoh): repeatedly exposed in the British media as a vulgar, corrupt, conniving Egyptian. The DTI report on his business dealings: "The lies of Mohamed Fayed and his success in 'gagging' the press created new fact: that lies were the truth and that the truth was a lie." In their conclusion on the al-Fayed brothers: "dishonestly misrepresented their origins, their wealth, their business interests and their resources", and provided information which they "knew to be false". In an editorial, The Daily Telegraph noted that former Harrods employees had had their apartments bugged on the orders of Mohamed al-Fayed (Wednesday 15 October 1997). The previous day, Neil Hamilton, a former-MP and ex-government minister allegedly bribed by al-Fayed, claimed under oath in a submission to the House of Commons privileges and standards committee, that al-Fayed had personally ordered and overseen the forced entry of safe-deposit boxes stored at Harrods, he went on to say: "Mr Fayed has a well known record of deceit and invention ... an innate capacity for deceit". Scotland Yard confirmed that they were investigating the illegal entry of the safe-deposit boxes. The Observer, Sunday 30 November 1997, reported on the extensive monitoring by al-Fayed on the staff employed at Harrods. On Monday 2 March 1998, al-Fayed was arrested for allegedly stealing and tampering with items belonging to Tiny Rowland that had been stored in safe-deposit boxes at Harrods.

    Michael Cole (mouthpiece for al-Fayed): allegedly sacked by the BBC for leaking the Queen's Speech (refuted by Cole), universally detested by the media. On Friday 20 February 1998, Cole dramatically quit his post, apparently even he could no longer stomach the garbage he was spouting (The Express, Saturday 21 February 1998).

    Henri Paul (chauffeur, Ritz security): his friends are adamant that he is undergoing character assassination, a British newspaper reported him as a shady character, leading a seedy double life. ITV documentary Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash (Wednesday, 3 June 1998), claimed Henri Paul was a member of the French Intelligence Service. Richard Tomlinson (ex-MI6) has claimed that Henri Paul was working for MI6.

    Trevor Rees-Jones (bodyguard): the only major player whose reputation has survived as remarkably clean, but his background as an ex-member of the Parachute Regiment does not enhance his standing, as anyone who has had the misfortune to live in the garrison town of Aldershot will testify, members of the Parachute Regiment are little more than thugs kitted-out in army uniform. On Saturday 28 February 1998, Trevor Rees-Jones issued a statement that following counselling sessions with a psychiatrist he was now able to recall much what of what had happened. The statement raised many questions - to what extent had information been planted in his mind, what undue influence had al-Fayed brought to bear now that Rees-Jones had returned to light duties, was Rees-Jones being paid for his story? On Monday 20 April 1998, Trevor Rees-Jones resigned from the service of al-Fayed, expressing a desire through his layers to 'move his life on'. Wednesday 23 September, Trevor Rees-Jones indicated his intention to sue the company that had hired the Mercedes to the Ritz.

    Paul Handley-Greaves ('security expert'): known as a liar and a cheat. Was involved in an elaborate plot to discredit Vanity Fair, by claiming to be in possession of stolen security videos from Harrods.

    James Hewitt (ex-lover, widely regarded as a shit): not an immediate player but his revelation in the ITV documentary Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash (Wednesday, 3 June 1998), that he was warned off his relationship with Diana as 'not conducive to his health', that his 'security could not be guaranteed' and that he could meet the same fate as Barry Mannakee (Diana's personal bodyguard, killed in a motorcycle accident, 1988) lends some credence to the possibility Diana's death may not have been an accident. [The Times, Wednesday 3 June 1998]

    The Press: blood stained from their implied involvement in the death. Will do anything to shift the blame and focus of attention elsewhere.

    The truth may never out. Mid-October 1997, John Burton, the British coroner charged with investigating and recording a verdict on the death of Diana, publicly expressed his concern and frustration at his inability to get at the truth. He cited the disinformation surrounding the case and referred to the conspiracy theories appearing on Internet.

    Did they succeed?

    First, before I answer, does it make a difference, if, as I posed at the beginning it was an accident, or as the autopsies on the driver indicate, driver error, propelled by the paparazzi? To this the answer is no, as the end objective is met, the Princess is taken out of the game and hands are clean.

    To return to the posed question, did they succeed, the simple answer is no, and that has been answered by the millions who responded to her death.

    Anyone who spent an evening in Kensington Palace Gardens could not but helped be moved by the spirit that was in the place.

    The people want a memorial to Diana, they want more than a pile of stone, they want to see her work continue. As the Palace found to its cost, the public will not back down on this.

    A quiet revolution appears to be taking place, thirty years on after the revolutionary mood of the '60s. Then is was a radical element wanting a better world, to be cast aside by the '70s and gruesome '80s, now it is the whole population. A velvet revolution appears to have gripped the psyche. Can it succeed? Maybe, in the '60s the radical youth were greeted by the hard old men who grew up on war and knew nothing else. Now, those radicals of the '60s hold positions of power, are people of influence, will they, can they, deliver what they once dreamed of, now that the public demands it?

    Earl Spencer, in probably the most eloquent speech in history, pledged in a tribute to his sister to continue the work of Diana. He pledged to see that her sons would be brought up in the way she would have wished, that they would help to continue her work. It would be a very foolish person indeed who tries to oppose him.

    Both Tony Blair and Hilary Clinton have sensed and grasped the public mood. Both have pledged to continue her work.

    Outside Kensington Palace, I was struck by flowers from Iraqis mourning what for them was the loss of a beacon of humanity.

    The work on landmines has become a foregone conclusion - a world ban. It is amazing who has jumped on the bandwagon following Diana's death. Robin Cook (UK Foreign Secretary) pushing hard for a ban as though it has been his lifelong ambition, if nothing else it has added some substance to his ethical foreign policy which until then noticeably lacking in substance. A general, in a letter to The Times, highlighted the lack of military utility of landmines and gave the campaign his whole-hearted backing. What next, a ban on arms to repressive regimes such as Turkey and Indonesia? This is a logical extension, and probably something Diana would have moved on to once she realised the full extent of her power for good.

    For everyone, the world over, a light has gone out, but as the many candles burning in Kensington Palace Gardens has shown, there are many who are determined to keep that light burning.

    As one, with Tony Blair and Hilary Clinton I am proud to be counted as one who will help to move her work forward for the poor, the sick, the disadvantaged, for all of humanity.

    It is for others to light their own candles to banish the forces of darkness and show that they are finally defeated. The forces of darkness may have extinguished one flame, but a million stand its stead each burning with the same spirit and passion.

    There were those who from a position of ignorance and bigotry chose to ridicule this account. History may yet prove them wrong. Within hours of the tragedy, conspiracy theories started to appear on the Web, within days serious questions were raised in Cairo, including the publication of a book. Once the initial shock had wore off, dark hints were made, then questions started to be asked, soon the possible presence of other vehicles became more than mere unsubstantiated rumour and speculation. On Saturday 14 February 1998, The Times raised the issue with the stark headline 'Diana: was it murder?'. The article was attributed to Thomas Sancton and Scott MacLeod, authors of Death of a Princess: An Investigation. Having posed the question, no clear cut answer was given other than to highlight, as has been done here, the many riddles and puzzling elements of her death.

    Still more questions were raised in an ITV documentary Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash, broadcast Wednesday, 3 June 1998. The programme raised the possibility of Henri Paul being a member of the French Intelligence Service, serious flaws in his blood sample, and the presence of a motorcyclist who tried to cut-up the Mercedes moments before the crash and may have been the cause of a blinding flash deliberately aimed to disable the driver. In a follow-up studio discussion Bernard Ingham (former mouthpiece of Lady Thatcher) and Rupert Allison (self-styled intelligence expert) both demonstrated their ignorance and bigotry. David Shayler (ex-MI5 agent) was barred by government threats from participating in the studio discussion.

    Diana 'foresaw death crash'

    By Robert Jobson and Richard Holliday, Evening Standard 20.10.03

    Princess Diana predicted her death in a car crash only months before the Paris tragedy which killed her.
    The extraordinary revelation emerged today as a handwritten letter she gave her butler Paul Burrell was made public for the first time.
    The letter says: “They’re planning ‘an accident’ in my car, brake failure and serious head injury in order to make the path clear for Charles to marry.”
    In the letter Diana names who she believed was plotting to kill her. But for legal reasons the identity cannot be revealed.
    The claims will reignite the conspiracy theories that have surrounded Diana since she died with her boyfriend Dodi Fayed in the Alma tunnel in Paris in August 1997.
    The revelations are made in Mr Burrell’s new book, A Royal Duty, which is
    being serialised in the Daily Mirror. It comes amid continuing controversy
    about the failure to stage a full inquest in Britain into Diana’s death.
    Although it has been six years since the tragedy, only in the last few months
    has Royal Coroner Michael Burgess agreed to a full public investigation.
    He was expected to name a date within days, but it has now emerged he will not
    be drawn on a timescale.
    Today’s revelations are certain to impact on the relationship of Charles
    and Camilla Parker Bowles. They pose a setback for the couple just as they are
    becoming increasingly accepted by the Queen, the public and the establishment and as a forthcoming marriage was being seen as a more realistic prospect.
    Diana gave Mr Burrell the letter in October 1996 just 10 months before the
    accident as “insurance” for the future.
    He claims it has been part of “the burden I have carried since the Princess’s
    death.” He adds: “Deciding what to do with it has been a source of much
    soulsearching.”
    But Mr Burrell, who is set to make millions from his book, is bound to be
    accused of cashing in on Diana’s memory.
    Last year he was cleared of stealing her personal possessions after the dramatic intervention of the Queen just before he was to give evidence.
    Harrods owner Mohamed Fayed, father of Dodi, has always claimed his
    son and Diana were killed in a Secret Service plot.
    He has spent hundreds of thousands of pounds on a private investigation to try to prove his conspiracy theory.

    Diana, Princess of Wales: Did MI6 Kill Her?

    Princess's Diana Memorial in Hyde Park. Copyright © LondonNet Ltd 2006
    Following Diana's sudden death in Paris, August 31, 1997 many doubts have surrounded the official story of the paparazzi chasing a drunk driver at speed toward an inevitable and tragic accident. Below you will find an examination of the evidence surrounding the number one conspiracy theory- MI6 killed Diana...

    The Two Main Theories

    a) One or more rogue "cells" in the British secret service construct and carry out a plot to kill Diana.
    b) An official campaign by MI6 to assasinate Diana, sanctioned by elements of the establishment.

    The Possible Motives

    a) The rogue elements in MI5 (National security) or MI6 (International security) decide that Di is a threat to the throne, and therefore the stability of the state. They take her out.
    b) With similar motives to the possible rogue elements, the official campaign is driven by a fear of Diana's possible to conversion to Islam (Dodi being a Muslim) and the implication on the Church and State were the two Princes, William and Harry, to follow their mother's lead.

    The Evidence

    Circumstantial it maybe, but put together is it capable of raising sufficient doubt that this was an accident?
    Below are some of the questions and doubts that are raised by the investigation so far



    - The rapid disposal of the bodies of Diana and Dodi. Diana
    had no post mortem prior to burial in Althorp. Victims of sudden death require a post mortem by law in the UK.
    - The missing white Fiat Uno: With such a large-scale investigation by French authorities could only secret agents have evaded the police's net around Paris? We know the car hit the Mercedes used by Di and Dodi, thanks to traceable paint marks on the Benz. Witnesses refer to the car lurching around the road at varying speeds as both it and the Merc entered the tunnel of death.
    - Henri Paul, driver of the Limo. The mis-information surrounding this key figure is enormous. First he was said to be driving at up to 120 mph, recent reports by professional crash investigators suggest 60 mph, even less on impact.
    Was he really drunk? It is accepted that he had two Ricard drinks at the Ritz, but no other evidence has emerged to support this claim, beyond questionable results from a blood test from his corpse. Why questionable? Because it is common for the alcohol level to rise in bodies after death regardless of consumption. The test also showed a very high level of carbon monoxide (20 per cent) in his blood. Experts say this would have incapacitated him before he set off on his fatal journey, and yet the hotel's video evidence shows him walking around and talking normally. An alcoholic? Well , as a pilot, he passed a rigorous health check two days before the accident. His liver showed no signs of abuse on post-mortem.
    Then there is the question of the multiple bank accounts Paul held, with balances showing income far in excess of his 20 000 UKP salary as acting head of security at the Ritz. Some friends have suggested he was a long term "sleeper" agent for a secret service agency, almost certainly French intelligence.
    - Trevor Rees Jones (Fayed bodyguard)- The only survivor. One time member of Her Majesty's armed forces, rumours suggest he may have been a "sleeper" agent for MI5 or MI6, particularly as the establishment were keen to keep tabs on Mohammed Al Fayed. Why was he the only person in the car to wear a safety-belt?
    - Explosion, followed by Bang- Immediately after the crash news was broadcast, witnesses appeared on US TV saying that they heard an explosion or bang before they heard the car crash. Was this a gunshot, or a bomb?
    - White Light- Other witnesses describe an extremely bright white light, much stronger than a photographer's flashbulb, illuminating the tunnel before the crash sounds. Powerful anti-personnel flash-guns are available to private citizens for as little as 250 UKP. The security forces have access to much stronger tools. All of which are capable of blinding a victim for several minutes - easily enough to cause a fatal crash. Crucially there would be no physical evidence left for investigators.
    - James Hewitt- Former lover of Diana claims he was warned on several occasions by elements of the security forces and a member of the royal family to stop seeing the Princess or his health would suffer! Hewitt has been exposed previously as being very willing to exploit a situation for his own ends, as in the publication of a sleazy book about Diana to which he contributed.
    - Paparazzi- Initially blamed for the crash, most witnesses seem to agree that the bikes were not close enough to the Mercedes in the tunnel to have actually interfered with its progress.
    NB These are just a selection of matters which cause concern for investigators. Many other points are raised by the "accident" but for reasons of space are not dealt with here.

    Conclusions

    There are many questions that arise out of this incident. The most plausible explanation still appears to be a tragic accident - Paul who was driving to some degree under the influence of alcohol, tried to accelerate away from the pursuing photographers, lost control going into the tunnel (after the slight curve in the road, and maybe as the Uno impeded his progress) and crashed into the tunnel's thirteenth pillar.
    This maybe the most plausible explanation, however, we feel that without dramatic new evidence , such as the Uno and driver turning up, this will never be certain.
    While there remains doubt as to whether it was an accident it is reasonable to question what the possible alternatives are. The most plausible of these has to involve members of the UK establishment and secret service as few others had anything to lose from Diana and Dodi's relationship. To keep such a plot secret we believe it would have to be the work of a small, isolated cell working under its own auspices within the system.
    Former agents have told of a plot to destabilise the then Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson in the Seventies. Wilson did indeed resign from office, shocking political commentators at the time. We know that our intelligence service keeps records on Peace campaigners and Union officials for the "threat" of being radicals.
    If the service really does operate as efficiently as James Bond films lead us to believe, which we doubt very strongly, then there would be nothing to stop them orchestrating Diana's death AND making it appear to be an accident.
    But as yet there is clearly more evidence to support an accident than a secret plot. For us though, the jury is still out.

    Diana Assassination Conspiracy:Ex-MI6 Agent Raided
        by DAILY EXPRESS
    A raid on the home of a former British spy was sensationally linked to the Princess Diana inquiry last night.

    French secret servicemen and police stormed a property owned by renegade MI6 agent Richard Tomlinson.

    They arrested the 42-year-old ex-spy before seizing computer files and personal papers from his home in Cannes on the French Riviera.

    Tomlinson’s career put him in a position to give compelling insights into the thinking of Britain’s spymasters about Diana
    in the years before her death. His position at the heart of the spy network gave him a unique view into what lay behind
    the Paris crash which killed the Princess,
    her boyfriend Dodi Al Fayed and driv er Henri Paul in August 1997.

    Tomlinson’s yacht, which was moored near his flat, was also "turned upside down," according to those involved in the raid last week.

    The former secret service agent, who has spent time in prison for writing about his spying experiences, is understood to
    have twice met team members of the Lord Stevens inquiry into the death of Diana and assisted them.

    New query over Diana's death
    June 15 2003

    A British coroner is to re-open an inquiry into the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, a British newspaper said today.
    The Sunday Mirror today reported the car in which Princess Diana and her friend Dodi Al-Fayed were killed in 1997, currently held at a police station in a Paris suburb, could be sent to England for examination.
    According to the weekly, coroner Michael Burgess has decided to re-open an inquiry into the death of Diana who divorced the heir to the British throne, Prince Charles, in 1996.
    "For almost six years the whereabouts of the VIP limousine - and the answers to why and how the couple died - have remained a mystery," the tabloid wrote.
    On August 31, 1997, a Mercedes 280 with tabloid photographers in pursuit slammed into a concrete pillar in the Alma underpass in Paris at high speed, killing Diana and her companion.

    UK to unfold Diana's mysterious deathAdd to Clippings
  •  
  • LONDON: With fateful timing, exactly 48 hours before Diana and Dodi's sixth death anniversary on Sunday, the world has been told it might finally be on the verge of solving the most famous and mysterious car crash in history.

    On Friday, the British authorities announced a one-million-pound inquest into Dodi's death "sooner rather than later". It is thought effectively to constitute the first official public inquiry on British soil into Diana's death.

    The inquest, long delayed by legal and police procedure, is a requirement under British law when a body is returned to the UK following a death abroad. The tragic couple has not had an inquest so far and there had been some speculation a joint inquiry may be announced next week.

    Dodi's father, the London businessman Mohammed al-Fayed, has long campaigned for a public inquiry, claiming the crash was no accident.

    Despite millions of websites with conspiracy theories to match, there is little public clarity about the circumstances surrounding the tragic death of the most photographed woman in the world, Diana, Princess of Wales.

    The only investigation so far has been conducted in secret by a French judge, who issued a 6,000-page report that was never published.

    A spokesman for the south-east English county council of Surrey, where Dodi lived and his inquest will be held, said there were "no plans" for a joint hearing.

    Even so, any inquest into the car crash is expected to delve deep. It is expected to summon – and hear – at least 10 key witnesses the world has not formally interviewed so far. They include Francois and Valerie Levistre, who claimed to have seen a "big flash" coming out of the tunnel just before the crash; Brenda Wells, who claimed she was prevented by a motorbike from going down the crucial approach road to the crash-site ahead of the crash and Gary Hunter, who said he saw two vehicles race out of the tunnel, including a mysterious dark car.

    The crumpled Mercedes in which Diana and Dodi made their last journey, is likely to be shipped from Paris to England and examined for the first time here.

    The death in a Paris underpass on August 31, 1997, has always remained a black hole of suspicion and controversy. For years, there have been frenzied allegations she was assassinated by British intelligence agencies due to her choice of an Arab Muslim lover.

    Henri Paul, the couple's driver that night, was alleged by a former British intelligence officer to have been in the pay of MI6.

    Diana's two sons, the Princes William and Harry, are said to be keen on an inquest.

    Diana Assassination Conspiracy:Ex-MI6 Agent Raided
        by DAILY EXPRESS
    A raid on the home of a former British spy was sensationally linked to the Princess Diana inquiry last night.

    French secret servicemen and police stormed a property owned by renegade MI6 agent Richard Tomlinson.

    They arrested the 42-year-old ex-spy before seizing computer files and personal papers from his home in Cannes on the French Riviera.

    Tomlinson’s career put him in a position to give compelling insights into the thinking of Britain’s spymasters about Diana
    in the years before her death. His position at the heart of the spy network gave him a unique view into what lay behind
    the Paris crash which killed the Princess,
    her boyfriend Dodi Al Fayed and driv er Henri Paul in August 1997.

    Tomlinson’s yacht, which was moored near his flat, was also "turned upside down," according to those involved in the raid last week.

    The former secret service agent, who has spent time in prison for writing about his spying experiences, is understood to
    have twice met team members of the Lord Stevens inquiry into the death of Diana and assisted them.

    New query over Diana's death
    June 15 2003

    A British coroner is to re-open an inquiry into the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, a British newspaper said today.
    The Sunday Mirror today reported the car in which Princess Diana and her friend Dodi Al-Fayed were killed in 1997, currently held at a police station in a Paris suburb, could be sent to England for examination.
    According to the weekly, coroner Michael Burgess has decided to re-open an inquiry into the death of Diana who divorced the heir to the British throne, Prince Charles, in 1996.
    "For almost six years the whereabouts of the VIP limousine - and the answers to why and how the couple died - have remained a mystery," the tabloid wrote.
    On August 31, 1997, a Mercedes 280 with tabloid photographers in pursuit slammed into a concrete pillar in the Alma underpass in Paris at high speed, killing Diana and her companion.


    Patricia Cornwell 'solves mystery' of Diana car crash
    By Andrew Alderson, Chief Reporter
    Patricia Cornwell, the world's best-selling living crime writer, has uncovered new evidence during a six-month investigation into the death
    of Diana, Princess of Wales.
     
     
     
    The author, who is understood to have gained access to officials directly involved in the autopsy on the Princess's body,
    believes that the new material will "lay some rumours and errors to rest".
    It is believed that she has been able to disprove misguided speculation that the Princess was pregnant with her third child when she died.
    In an interview with The Telegraph yesterday, Cornwell said that her inquiries had been "especially painful" and had left her with a respect
    The Princess of Wales died six years ago in a car crash in Paris which also claimed the lives of Dodi Fayed, her boyfriend, and Henri Paul,
    their driver. Trevor Rees-Jones, Mr Fayed's bodyguard, was the only survivor of the high-speed crash in the Alma tunnel in the early
    hours of August 31, 1997.
    Cornwell's findings will be broadcast in America in an hour-long programme for ABC's Prime Time Thursday slot on October 30.
     The film will be shown before the long-awaited inquest into the Princess's death.
    The inquest is due to be held in Britain but Michael Burgess, the coroner for the Royal Household, has not yet set a date for it. Herve Stephan,
    the French judge who conducted an investigation into the crash, has, however, blamed Mr Paul, the driver, saying that alcohol, prescription
    drugs and the high speed of the vehicle had all played a role.
    "I decided to look into the death of Princess Diana because it seems that the past six years have brought only more questions, rumours
     and baffling blanks," said Cornwell.
    The writer made her name with her novels, but has also earned a reputation for her investigations into real-life crimes.
    Her findings have sometimes been controversial: two years ago she became "100 per cent" certain that Walter Sickert,
    In America, where she was born in Miami, she is known as the "high priestess of crime" and her novels - full of serial killers
     and gruesome autopsies - have earned her an estimated $100 million (£71 million).
    Cornwell conducted her latest inquiries sympathetically. She was aware that such an investigation could be distressing
    for the Princess's friends and family, particularly her sons, Princes William and Harry.
    "I am guided by integrity and compassion, although seeking the truth isn't always comfortable for anyone involved.
    I have to say that this investigation was especially painful, the scope of its tragedy beyond measure, the losses
    devastating to the entire world.
    "I had no preconceptions, but was simply baffled by every detail I'd heard. Some information made no sense.
    The investigation will direct an objective beam on the most serious questions and conflicts, and reveal facts about them that have
    never before been addressed this thoroughly and accurately.
    "I have been shocked by how much primary information has been ignored and how much erroneous information has been chronically
     recycled. One would think there was nothing new to say about this case, but that couldn't have proved further from the truth."
    As a novelist, Cornwell ignored advice that "nobody wants to know about the morgue". In 1990, she published Postmortem,
     the first of 12 novels based on the fictional heroine Kay Scarpetta, a forensic pathologist from Virginia who tracks down serial sex killers.
    Cornwell has been described as an obsessive seeker after truth. She spent $6 million (£3.75 million) of her own money investigating
     the killings of Jack the Ripper. She bought 32 of Sickert's paintings - which sell for more than £30,000 each - and even cut up one in
    her search for clues.
    She bought the artist's desk to test it for DNA and flew forensic scientists from America to London to sift through archives of letters.
    Her book on the case, Portrait of a Killer, currently tops the best-selling non-fiction paperback list in Britain.
    Cornwell, who spent several weeks in Britain last month pursuing her latest inquiries, refused to disclose whom she interviewed
     about the Princess's death, or the full details of her findings. She did, however, give an insight into one of her discoveries:
     "Forensic scientists have indicated that Henri Paul never even hit the brakes [before the car crashed]," she said.
    The programme is likely to address questions about whether the Princess of Wales received the best possible medical care
    Mohamed Fayed, the Egyptian owner of Harrods and the father of Dodi, has co-operated with the crime writer for the programme.
    There is certainly no guarantee, however, that Cornwell will concur with his conspiracy theories over the Paris crash, including
     his bizarre claim that the Royal Family played a role.
    "People who want me to advocate one theory or another won't be pleased," Cornwell said. Those close to the crime writer believe
    "I have a number of important interviews with very significant witnesses who have never before addressed this case publicly,
    " Cornwell said. "In addition I spoke to official witnesses whose identities - and even some of their information - are too sensitive to reveal."
    She added: "My mission as a literary investigator with roots in journalism is to bring about justice - even if there is no one to arrest as
     in the case of Jack the Ripper - and to allow healing, as in the cases of those left behind who either anguish over not knowing
     what really happened or are wounded repeatedly by theories of misinformation, mistakes or even lies.
    "My tools are primary sources, medicine, science and arduous hit-the-pavement investigation."
    She hopes that those who were close to the Princess will welcome her findings. "I sincerely hope that the show will lay some
     rumours and errors to rest, and I believe it will. Theories, however, will never entirely go away."

  • MI6 Murdered the People's Princess

    Open Letter from Mohammed Al Fayed

    ©Mohammed Al Fayed, www.Mathaba.net
    Most people are profoundly shocked, and rightly so, by the idea that Dodi and Diana were murdered.Princess Diana Yet it is my firm belief that Britain's racist establishment found their relationship utterly unacceptable, and so conspired with the intelligence services to have them killed. My repeated appeals for a full public inquiry in Britain into the Paris tragedy have been rejected out of hand by the prime minister, Tony Blair and the home secretary, Jack Straw but I shall never abandon my fight for disclosure of the full facts. The following open letter explains why.
    Since the 31st August 1997, the terrible day that my son Dodi and Princess Diana died in Paris, I have tried by all means that I know to get answers to the many questions left hanging in the air. I have been thwarted at every turn. The official French investigation has so far failed to resolve many key questions. The British government still refuses to hold a public inquiry. The intelligence services in France, Britain and the USA have stonewalled – though we know that intelligence services had Diana under surveillance on the fateful night in Paris. And, as we have seen only too clearly following the publication of the book by Trevor Rees-Jones (but one example), there has been a concerted campaign to discredit my attempts to get at the truth.
    I know that I am bitterly resented by some members of the British establishment. There are those who cannot accept that an Egyptian from a modest background should have become the owner of Harrods, a shop they considered a part of their heritage. Others reckon me beyond the pale because of my part in revealing corruption in the highest places. For a few, I suspect, it is simply a matter of racism; though they would never dream of saying so in public, they despise foreigners – especially those with crinkly hair and dark skins. Behind the scenes, the extreme right-wing in Britain still wields enormous influence particularly in the press and the corridors of unelected power. In my experience these people are ruthless in their determination and will stop at nothing to achieve their ends.
    Certainly my attempts to make progress through the official channels are blocked consistently by a brick wall of silence and secrecy.
    When I met Mr Blair in May 1999 at a reception hosted by the Muslim Council, I gave him this paper which set out my concerns and asked for his help, and a copy of this memo which I had given to the Council. I heard nothing. Then my lawyers wrote to him. Again, nothing. The same wall of silence greeted my letters to the Foreign Secretary, the Home Secretary and the Heads of MI5 and MI6. Such silence is rude and discourteous to me personally. I have given 35 years of my life to this country, paying hundreds of millions in taxes and employing tens of thousands of people. I have helped to win British firms overseas contracts worth billions of pounds. After making such a contribution to the country, I think I've earned the right to some answers. But more importantly, the people of Britain deserve answers: Diana was – in Tony Blair's words – "The People's Princess". A blanket refusal to answer legitimate questions can only fuel suspicion of foul play.
    These concerns were taken up in Parliament by the Conservative MP Charles Wardle. He did so of his own volition. In an adjournment debate in July 1999 he set out with great force and clarity the many reasons for holding a full inquiry in Britain into the Paris crash, conducted openly for all to see and follow. He requested a formal response from the Home Office; none has been forthcoming.
    I have pursued information in the United States under their Freedom of Information Act. The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the National Security Agency (NSA) have confirmed that they hold 39 documents consisting of 1,056 pages of information relating to Diana and Dodi but they refuse to reveal it on the grounds of national security. My American lawyers have been fighting for access to this vital information for the last year. A court in Washington DC has ordered the CIA to hand over the documents, but they have not complied. Recently we sought a subpoena to force the production of the documents – only to have the judge rule that, under the statute which allows subpoenas to be issued in connection with foreign proceedings, he did not have jurisdiction to issue a subpoena against the federal government. We have appealed and hope to get some movement soon, but it is a very slow business.
    The attitude of the British government was well-illustrated recently. On 27 February The Sunday Times published an article headlined "Spy agencies listened in on Diana". In this article, "former intelligence officials" confirmed to the newspaper that spy agencies in Britain and America "eavesdropped on Diana". The very next day, in response to my earlier demands for an official statement on this matter, I received a letter from the Treasury Solicitor, categorically denying any such activity by the security services, or those working on their behalf. Given that Diana was mother to the future King, and was often at odds with the Royal Family, it is frankly unbelievable that the security forces were taking no interest in her – but the official line attempts to deny the obvious.
    According to Stephen Dorril's newly published history of Britain's overseas intelligence service, "MI6: Fifty Years of Special Operations" (p788):Stephen Dorril's Book
    "... the late Princess of Wales had clearly been under some kind of surveillance, as evidenced by the 1,050-page dossier held by the US National Security Agency detailing private telephone conversations between Diana and American friends intercepted at MI6's request ". (emphasis added)
    It is hardly surprising that my efforts to uncover the truth about the Paris crash have made me a lot of enemies. But I have been shocked at the lengths that these people will go to in their attempts to discredit me. The Daily and Sunday Telegraph newspapers, considered by many to be the heart of reactionary opinion in Britain, have mounted an extraordinarily vicious and sustained campaign. Since the crash they have printed a never-ending stream of hostile articles – about 150 in all – accusing me of everything from tax evasion to sexual harassment. Their fellow-travellers, The Daily Mail, The Mail on Sunday and the London Evening Standard have joined in the fun. (For a more detailed account, see Mohamed Al Fayed and the Press). While seeking to portray me as some kind of fantasist, they show no interest themselves in establishing the facts. If they are able to prove me wrong, why don't they do so?
    The most recent attack on me was The Daily Telegraph's publication of extracts from the book "The Bodyguard's Story" by Trevor Rees-Jones. This account was, in fact, compiled by a committee and crafted by a ghostwriter. It is based substantially on the recollections of others because Rees-Jones himself has no memory of the crash itself and only partial recall of much else. He has simply been used as a vehicle to sensationalise a book which peddles the lies of those hell-bent on silencing me. And he has clearly forgotten completely about the confidentiality clause in his contract of employment with me.
    The motives behind the book are plain: they are to clear Trevor and his friend Kez Wingfield, the other bodyguard that night, of all responsibility for the tragedy and also to get "some recompense for what's happened." Everything in the book is shaped by these twin objectives of shifting the blame and selling the book. Trevor is consistently portrayed as a saint while I am relentlessly cast as the evil genius trying to manipulate his memories to support wild conspiracy theories. It is all rubbish and deeply ironic when it is Trevor and those who collaborated with him who are manipulating the truth for their own ends. Trevor has admitted that they – lawyers included – are all part of the book deal and so will share the profits. Like everyone else, I have the greatest sympathy for Trevor. He went through hell. But I cannot overlook the fact that, on the night, he failed to carry out established security procedures. Had he done so, the couple might be alive today.
    Interestingly, the ghostwriter Moira Johnston is best-known for a book on a famous court case concerning so-called "recovered memories." In her third-person narrative, individuals have a startling recall of precisely what they were thinking and saying more than two and a half years ago and, even more remarkable, an exact knowledge of what other people were thinking and saying when key events took place!
    Every trick in the book, every tabloid technique known to man, has been employed to fashion a fiction that parades as the truth. I bitterly resent this malicious book and its intrusion on my private family life and security arrangements. I simply cannot understand why I was refused an injunction when Tony Blair was awarded one to stop a book about his family written by a well-intentioned nanny who is a friend of the family! Sometimes the law really is an ass.
    The Daily Telegraph and other newspapers have claimed quite wrongly that "The Bodyguard's Story" demolishes many of my theories. In fact, it contains no new information and actually lends weight to my conviction that Henri Paul was not drunk at all.Work of Fiction Both Trevor and Kez continue to insist that Paul gave no indication whatsoever of being drunk before he got behind the wheel. They had been with him for extended periods that evening and still maintain that there was nothing in his behaviour or general conduct to suggest that he had been drinking. If this is the case, how then do they account for the inquiry finding that, within three minutes of leaving the hotel, he was more than three times over the drink-drive limit?
    The book makes several claims (about the engagement ring and the reported last words of Diana) which are wrong, but otherwise it consists of little more than gossip and innuendo designed to clear the bodyguards of any responsibility for what happened. Despite this, the Establishment has hailed it as a work of great significance. Like the recent revelation that the brother-in-law ofThe Sunday Telegraph editor is a senior MI6 officer , it shows how far the influence of the Establishment extends.
    I remain convinced that most fair-minded people believe there was foul play in Paris. Even The Daily Telegraph Home Affairs Editor Philip Johnston was recently forced to acknowledge:
    "Since the serialisation began, this newspaper and others connected with the book have been contacted by people who just cannot come to terms with the banal circumstances of the Princess's death. One caller yesterday berated The Daily Telegraph for 'covering up what everyone knows is the truth' ".
    Like Trevor Rees-Jones, I too would like to move on and lead a normal life but the Establishment is making that impossible. It is their constant refusal to answer perfectly straightforward questions that drives me on. They should know that the efforts to discredit and destroy me will not succeed and that I will never give up my fight to discover the full facts about the deaths of Dodi and Diana. I am not alone in wanting answers. There is widespread public unease about the circumstances of the tragedy. Very many ordinary people in this country want answers and they deserve them. In my own mind I must be certain that what happened in Paris was truly God's will and not the will of others. I have great faith that God will guide and protect me in my search and I fear no one. I am equally sure that one day the truth will be known.

    Diana 'foresaw death crash'

    By Robert Jobson and Richard Holliday, Evening Standard 20.10.03
    Princess Diana predicted her death in a car crash only months before the Paris tragedy which killed her.
    The extraordinary revelation emerged today as a handwritten letter she gave her butler Paul Burrell was made public for the first time.
    The letter says: “They’re planning ‘an accident’ in my car, brake failure and serious head injury in order to make the path clear for Charles to marry.”
    In the letter Diana names who she believed was plotting to kill her. But for legal reasons the identity cannot be revealed.
    The claims will reignite the conspiracy theories that have surrounded Diana since she died with her boyfriend Dodi Fayed in the Alma tunnel in Paris in August 1997.
    The revelations are made in Mr Burrell’s new book, A Royal Duty, which is
    being serialised in the Daily Mirror. It comes amid continuing controversy
    about the failure to stage a full inquest in Britain into Diana’s death.
    Although it has been six years since the tragedy, only in the last few months
    has Royal Coroner Michael Burgess agreed to a full public investigation.
    He was expected to name a date within days, but it has now emerged he will not
    be drawn on a timescale.
    Today’s revelations are certain to impact on the relationship of Charles
    and Camilla Parker Bowles. They pose a setback for the couple just as they are
    becoming increasingly accepted by the Queen, the public and the establishment and as a forthcoming marriage was being seen as a more realistic prospect.
    Diana gave Mr Burrell the letter in October 1996 just 10 months before the
    accident as “insurance” for the future.
    He claims it has been part of “the burden I have carried since the Princess’s
    death.” He adds: “Deciding what to do with it has been a source of much
    soulsearching.”
    But Mr Burrell, who is set to make millions from his book, is bound to be
    accused of cashing in on Diana’s memory.
    Last year he was cleared of stealing her personal possessions after the dramatic intervention of the Queen just before he was to give evidence.
    Harrods owner Mohamed Fayed, father of Dodi, has always claimed his
    son and Diana were killed in a Secret Service plot.
    He has spent hundreds of thousands of pounds on a private investigation to try to prove his conspiracy theory.

    Patricia Cornwell 'solves mystery' of Diana car crash






  • Burrell: MI5 Linked to Diana's Death
    PAUL Burrell yesterday told police of an MI5 link to the chilling letter in which Princess Diana predicted she would be killed in a car crash.
    The ex-royal butler was quizzed for three hours by detectives probing Diana's death in 1997.
    Mr Burrell, 46, said: "It was a delicate and sensitive meeting and I helped the officers as much as I could." He talked about a secret friendship which the princess had struck up with a former MI5 intelligence officer.
    The man's warning prompted Diana to write her fears in a letter that she would die in a car accident - 10 months before the Paris crash.
    Two officers quizzed Mr Burrell at his solicitor's office in Chester about the letter's authenticity and context. Asked if he had talked about the MI5 link Mr Burrell added: "I mentioned everything which I believed was relevant."
    Diana believed she was being watched by the security services.
    Coroner Michael Burgess ordered an investigation into her death before a full inquest next spring.
    Police said: " The meeting was not a formal police interview."

    I Heard Diana's Dying Words

    Glasgow Daily Record | March 14 2004

    Comment: Diana was still alive and would have survived had the ambulance not deliberately passed four seperate hospitals and had it not been going at a maximum speed of only 25 miles per hour.

    Comment: Diana was still alive and would have survived had the ambulance not deliberately passed four seperate hospitals and had it not been going at a maximum speed of only 25 miles per hour.

    PRINCESS Diana spoke to rescuers as she lay in the wreckage of her Paris car crash, it was claimed yesterday.

    She was conscious and asked questions of a fireman who comforted her, he said.

    Carlo Zaglia told how she repeatedly asked: 'What's happened?What's going on?'

    Meanhile, a claim by Dodi's father, Mohamed al Fayed, that MI6 were implicated in the deaths was dismissed yesterday.

    At the Court of Session, Judge Lord Drummond Young said that the Harrods owner, who owns Balnagown castle in Ross-shire, had not produced any facts to back up his allegations.

    He threw out the bid to have a public inquiry in Scotland into the tragedy which he blamed purely on the high-speed crash.

    A coroner's inquest has been launched in England but al Fayed believes its scope is limited and will keep pushing for a public inquiry.

    American TV viewers yesterday saw the first broadcast of a film showing Diana giggling and pulling faces for Princes William and Harry as she rehearsed for a speech.



    I Saw Fiat Driver Kill Di
    Sunday People - 01/18/04

    A NEW witness to Princess Diana's death smash has come forward - and says her limo WAS forced to crash by a white Fiat.

    Saw Fiat Driver Kill Di

    Sunday People

    A NEW witness to Princess Diana's death smash has come forward - and says her limo WAS forced to crash by a white Fiat.

    Moroccan beauty Souad Mouffakir, 33, kept silent for six years about what she saw because she feared she would be killed.

    But last week she gave her startling evidence to The People after her husband Mohamed Medjahdi - who was driving in front of Diana's black Mercedes in a Paris underpass - claimed there was NO mystery Fiat. Souad said:

    I saw through the back window a Fiat Uno driving very fast up to us in the outside lane. But rather than hurtle past, it slowed down so we were side by side.

    It was very strange behaviour and I got frightened. The white car was only centimetres from ours. I stared over to the driver and I will never forget him.

    He had a very strange expression like his mind was thinking about something else. His whole manner was odd. It troubled me.

    He was Mediterranean, short because his head was only just above the steering wheel. His skin was tanned and his hair was very dark brown and wiry.

    He was in his mid-thirties. In the back seat was a huge alsatian. I became very scared, I thought he was a madman and I told Mohamed to speed away. We did that and a moment later we heard the screech of tyres.

    I looked round and saw a black Mercedes sliding out of control at 45 degrees, coming straight at us. I saw the car impact into the pillar. I did not realise that I had just seen the crash that killed Diana. I saw the chauffeur thrown forward into the steering wheel. I knew he had been killed immediately.

    I wake thinking about it. The nightmares are terrible. I looked for the Fiat but it had disappeared. The Mercedes must have gone out of control trying to avoid it.


    Souad contacted police next day and she and Mohamed, 29, were quizzed but neither mentioned the Fiat because, she says, they were too scared.

    But Souad, who split with forklift truck driver Mohamed three years ago, agreed to speak to The People after he claimed in British and French newspapers last week that there was NO Fiat.

    At her home in a northern suburb of Paris, she said: "I have kept my silence for over six years but I am sick Mohamed lied.

    "I was convinced what I saw would lead me to being killed. But anyone who tries to kill me now will have to come out of hiding to do it.

    "I am furious Mohamed did not tell the whole truth. Diana was a beautiful woman who did so much good. I owe it to her and the people who loved her."

    Souad's dramatic claims were backed by two close friends.

    Farida Azzouz, 31, said: "Souad told me just after it happened that she had seen a white Fiat but she hadn't told the police about it. She was worried her life would be in danger."

    Another friend, Bouchra Zahdane, 24, said: "I can confirm they witnessed the crash but they kept very quiet about the exact details of it."

    Souad's evidence will be keenly studied by British police who have been asked by Royal coroner Dr Michael Burgess to investigate the deaths of Diana and her lover Dodi Fayed.

    The People has made no payment to Souad.



    Police doubts on Diana's death
    London Times - 01/10/04

    SERIOUS doubts have emerged among British police over the authenticity of a blood sample which shows that Diana, Princess of Wales was killed by a drunken driver.

    Police doubts on Diana's death


    London Times

    SERIOUS doubts have emerged among British police over the authenticity of a blood sample which shows that Diana, Princess of Wales was killed by a drunken driver. 

    Four days after the inquest into Diana's death was opened, The Times has discovered that there are high-level concerns over the forensic evidence at the heart of France's investigation. 

    The French authorities have failed to carry out DNA tests to prove that the specimen belonged to the chauffeur Henri Paul, The Times has learnt. 

    This threatens the conclusion of the French authorities that Diana was killed by a driver high on alcohol and prescription drugs who lost control of a car while speeding. 

    The French inquiry into Diana's death in a Mercedes in a Paris road tunnel on August 31, 1997 has been carefully monitored by United Kingdom diplomats, Whitehall and police. France has been resisting pressure from M Paul's family, and advice from UK officials, to carry out DNA tests which would finally prove that the blood belonged to M Paul. 

    The source of the British suspicion is that the sample contains an extraordinarily-high level of carbon monoxide, so much so that the chauffeur would have struggled to walk, let alone drive a car. 

    It is now feared by the authorities in London that an innocent mix-up in the laboratory or morgue may have led to the wrong sample being tested. 

    One possibility is that the sample comes from the corpse of somebody poisoned by carbon monoxide, the deadly gas found in household fires and car exhausts. The blood specimen is at the centre of the official French explanation of the deaths of Diana, her boyfriend Dodi Fayed, and M Paul. 

    The examining magistrates Hervé Stephan and Marie-Christine Devidal said that the three died as the result of an accident, rather than a deliberate act. This was because "the driver of the vehicle was drunk and under the effect of medicine incompatible with alcohol, a state which did not enable him to maintain control of his vehicle while driving at high speed on a difficult part of the road, and also having to avoid a vehicle travelling in the same direction at a slower speed". 

    The blood, purporting to come from M Paul, indicated he was three times over the French drink-drive limit, and twice over the British. 

    If the blood sample cannot be positively connected to the chauffeur, there is still evidence that his driving may have been to blame for the deaths. Scotland Yard sources have indicated that they have a high regard for the quality of the French road traffic accident investigation, which they hail as "exemplary". 

    The Mercedes S280 was travelling at a speed somewhere between 74mph and 97mph when it entered the Pont d'Alma tunnel, and at between 59mph and 68mph when it hit a pillar. The finding that M Paul had a high level of alcohol in his blood was first made by the Paris prosecutor's office on September 1, the day after the fatal crash. 

    Lawyers for Mohamed Al Fayed, Dodi's father, sought an independent analysis of the blood samples but Judge Stephan refused. The judge ordered new tests in order to counter any future challenges. Blood, hair and bone marrow was drawn and examined on September 4 with the whole procedure recorded on video. 

    Small traces of tiaprise - used to treat pain or aggression, often in chronic alcoholics - were found. So was a therapeutic dose of fluoxetine, the key active ingredient in the anti-depressant Prozac. "Care in the use of these medicines is habitually recommended to drivers," the public prosecutor's office said. Analysis of protein transfer in M Paul's blood produced results "compatible . . . with a chronic alcoholism over the course of at least a week", the office said. One of the samples showed 20.7 per cent of the blood had combined with carbon monoxide, an unusually-high level. Mr Al Fayed has long claimed that the blood samples were swapped by British and French intelligence agents to cover up murder. 

    In August 2002, the chauffeur's family filed a complaint of "falsification of expert evidence", without naming a defendant in a Paris court. The aim was to force the authorities to hand over blood samples for DNA tests. Their suit has been rejected as unfounded. Mr Al Fayed's lawyers have raised questions about the constant refusal by the authorities to grant access to the samples or to M Paul's body. 

    Jean-Claude Mules, a police inspector who played a central role in the investigation, said: "There was no error over the blood. We are very serious people and no errors are allowed." 

    However Jean Paul, the father of the late Ritz Hotel security official, said: "We remain absolutely convinced that our son had not been drinking."

    Diana In Fear Over '95 Crash

    Diana In Fear Over '95 Crash

    London Mirror
    A FRIEND of Princess Diana has told how she had a car crash two years before she died which she blamed on sabotage.

    Simone Simmons, 48, is ready to testify to the Scotland Yard inquiry into Diana's fatal accident in Paris in 1997.

    Two years earlier, the princess's green convertible had hit another car as she drove away from a healing centre in Marylebone, central London.

    Ms Simmons said: "Diana rang to tell me. She was panic-stricken. She told me that the brakes had suddenly failed.

    "Fortunately she wasn't hurt. It seemed to reinforce her belief that someone was trying to kill her.

    "Diana said later that the garage confirmed it was just a mechanical failure, and not foul play.

    "But it shook her up badly and she was convinced that someone had tampered with the car."

    Last week the Daily Mirror revealed how Diana wrote in a note that Charles might be plotting her death in similar fashion.

    Diana was pregnant when she died: Report


    Diana was pregnant when she died: Report

    December 21, 2003 18:41 IST
    Last Updated: December 22, 2003 15:20 IST

    Princess Diana was pregnant at the time of her death in a road accident in Paris six years ago, a media report said in London on Sunday.
    "I can tell you that she (Diana) was pregnant," a senior police official in France told the Independent.
    According to the daily, the source dismissed suggestions that there was any conspiracy before the death of Diana, her friend Dodi al-Fayed and their driver in a car crash on August 31, 1997.
    The source, however, claimed that there was 'a cover-up of sorts' in the days following the crash. The officer said medical reports, which have never been made public, showed that Diana was pregnant at the time of her death.
    Conspiracy theorists had seized reports that Diana was pregnant - first alleged by Dodi's father millionaire businessman Mohammed al-Fayed soon after the accident - as a possible motive for an assassination plot by the British royal family and government.
    The source who, according to the report, saw all documents relating to the case was speaking after a British coroner announced that he would hold inquests into the cause of the deaths of Diana and Dodi, beginning on January 6, 2004.
    The source said the investigation points clearly to an accident, caused in part by the fact that chauffeur Henri Paul had been drinking heavily.
    Diana's friends and her butler, Paul Burrell, have, in the past, strenuously denied suggestions that the princess was expecting a third child at the time of her death.
    The source implied that Diana's pregnancy was hushed up to spare the embarrassment to her family. Since it was not regarded as relevant to the cause of the accident, or her death, it was not mentioned at the end of the two-year judicial investigation into the crash by a French judge, Herve Stephan.
    Medical reports from the hospital where Diana died may, however, be included among the 6,000 pages of documents from the French investigation, which will be delivered to the British coroner, Michael Burgess. The coroner has said that he cannot open the hearings until he received the investigation file once legal proceedings were completed in France. He also indicated that the full hearings would be delayed until the whole file has been translated and studied.
    There has also been speculation about the time it has taken to call a British inquest, now routine when a British citizen dies abroad. The proceedings have been prolonged mostly by Fayed who appealed against the original decision by French authorities to bring no action against the photographers who pursued Diana and Dodi's car.
    When he lost the appeal, Fayed filed another case against three photographers for invading his son's privacy. In November, a French court dismissed the case.

    Diana's death likened to MI6 plot

    British and American security services were monitoring Diana and Dodi in the month leading up to their deaths and that Henri Paul may have been an MI6 informant.



    Diana's death likened to MI6 plot

    JOHN ROBERTSON LAW CORRESPONDENT 
    The Scotsman - Tues 16th Dec

    MORE than six years after the deaths of Diana, Princess of Wales, and Dodi Al-Fayed, the questions surrounding the Paris car crash in which they were killed continue to grip the public imagination. 

    The Court of Session in Edinburgh became the centre of international attention yesterday as Mohamed al-Fayed, the owner of Harrods, pursued his search for the truth about how, or why, his son and Diana died. 

    "I have been fighting for six years, but I can see the light and justice can be done. What I am doing is for the nation and for the ordinary people ... Eighty-five per cent believe Diana was murdered with my son." 

    The court heard Mr Fayed’s counsel contend that he had "substantial grounds" for fearing that the British security services were implicated. The crash, it was claimed, had "striking similarities" to an earlier MI6 plot to remove Slobodan Milosevic, then president of Serbia. 

    Colin Boyd, QC, the Lord Advocate, has refused an inquiry into the crash, but Mr Fayed maintains that as a resident of Scotland, at Balnagown Castle, Kildary, Easter Ross, he is entitled to secure his rights under the tenets of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). 

    Mr Fayed argues there should be an effective, official inquiry when someone appears to have been killed as a result of the use of force and is asking Lord Drummond Young to set aside the Lord Advocate’s decision as incompatible with the ECHR. 

    Richard Keen, QC, for Mr Fayed, said that the official line from the French police after the crash in a tunnel in Paris in the early hours of 31 August, 1997, was that it had been an accident caused by Henri Paul, assistant head of security at the Ritz hotel and the driver of the Mercedes the couple died in. The French police said Mr Paul was drunk and on anti-depressants at the time of the crash. Mr Paul also died in the incident. 

    "He [Mr Paul] had been in the Ritz Hotel for two hours before he left and is recalled by all those who spoke with him as being entirely sober," said Mr Keen. He said British and American security services were monitoring Diana and Dodi in the month leading up to their deaths and that Henri Paul may have been an MI6 informant. 

    And on the night of the crash Mr Paul had taken a "highly unusual route" from the Ritz to Dodi’s apartment. 

    The QC said pieces of a broken tail-light, from a white Fiat Uno, had been found at the scene of the crash, and there were marks on the bumper of the Mercedes. 

    Inquiries had "led to the suggestion" that the driver of the Fiat might have been James Andanson, a member of the paparazzi who had been pursuing the couple that summer, although he denied being in Paris that night. In 2000, Mr Andanson’s body was found. It was initially treated as murder, but then was declared to have been suicide. 

    Mr Keen said there had been reports of a flash of light in the tunnel, which would have blinded a driver. 

    A former MI6 agent had said the circumstances bore "striking similarities" to a plan in 1992 to assassinate Milosevic. The agent had also revealed that MI6 had an informant on the security staff at the Ritz Hotel. After the crash, it was learned that Mr Paul had 13 bank accounts containing more than a million francs. 

    "It might suggest he had at least some kind of part-time job," said Mr Keen. 

    Diana had expressed fears for her safety, and Mr Keen added: "If her fears had only one ounce of truth in October 1996, one is entitled to ask how much greater they may have been in August 1997 when the general anticipation was that a person denigrated by sections of the establishment was about to become stepfather to the future king," said Mr Keen. 

    Mr Keen said Diana and Princes William and Harry were being monitored from around 10 July, 1997, when they arrived at the Fayed estate in St Tropez in the south of France. 

    After the couple arrived at Beauvais airport on August 30, Mr Keen told the court, "as a matter of practice French security reported the arrival of the Princess to the UK embassy assuming they were not aware of it. 

    Mr Keen added that the US National Security Agency has confirmed the Princess was the subject of monitoring at the time of the crash. 

    The hearing is expected to last several days, and the judge will issue his ruling later.

    Diana 'feared for her life'

    Diana, the late Princess of Wales, feared for her life, close friend Roberto Devorik, an Argentine fashion impresario and designer, has revealed.


    Diana 'feared for her life'

    Sydney Morning Herald
    an Argentine fashion impresario and designer, has revealed. 

    Mr Devorik, who is director of the Ralph Lauren subsidiary in Argentina, said that, before a private jet trip with Diana to Rome, she had said to him: "Let's see if we fly together or they blow us up." 

    He told El Clarin newspaper that Diana said during the flight that she had a "premonition" that "they are going to kill me in one of these machines, in a helicopter". 

    He said Diana added: "But after I'm dead, it's going to be harder for them to forget me because if they kill me, the memory of me is going to stay with them the rest of their lives." 

    The first news that Diana might have feared for her life was from former royal butler Paul Burrell in A Royal Duty, his memoir of his service to her, which was released last month. 

    He said Diana wrote a letter 10 months before she died saying she feared somebody was planning "an accident" in her car.

    Mr Devorik said that, after Diana's death, "obviously there was something very strange because the investigation was never carried out fully - there are things that were never explained and which deserve an explanation". 

    He said the love of Diana's life was Pakistani physician Hasnet Khan. 

    He said Dodi al-Fayed was not the man of Diana's life. 

    In the interview with El Clarin, that appeared on Sunday, he said Diana had told him that Dodi was "a summer romance".




    Diana: The Real Reason Stores Are Pulling The Globe?
    Story of William's revenge quickly being removed from the shelves

    Diana: The Real Reason Stores Are Pulling The Globe?

    Rayelan Allan
    WHY ARE MANY STORES IN THE MIDWEST PULLING THE GLOBE TABLOID? 

    Are they doing it to protect Kobe Bryant's accuser? Or are they doing it to keep you from knowing that Prince Phillip was behind Diana's murder? 

    The GLOBE tabloid is being pulled from many stores in the midwest part of the United States. It is unknown if the rest of the country will soon join these stores in removing the tabloid. 

    The reason given for removing the November 11th edition of the tabloid is that it published both a picture and the name of the woman that is accusing Kobe Bryant of rape. 

    This woman's name and picture have been on the Internet for months. If anyone had been interested in finding out what she looked like or what her name is, they could have done it months ago. 

    The GLOBE claims they published her name and photograph at the urging of several women's rights groups who asked them to do this. They failed to name the women's rights groups! 

    However, there is another story in this edition of the GLOBE, and it is my belief that the stores are removing the GLOBE because of THIS article. 

    The headline on the uppermost right side screamed: 

    "DID WILLIAM'S GRANDDAD MURDER DIANA?" 
    Crash plot uncovered

    When you open the tabloid to page 16 you see these headlines 

    WILLIAM VOWS TO EXPOSE CONSPIRACY TO KILL MOM 

    Was his grandfather behind the plot? 

    The article goes on to say that William... 

    STILL devastated over the death of his mother after six years, Prince William is determined to uncover the conspiracy he - believes led to her murder - even if it takes him straight to his own grandfather! 

    "I SHALL find the truth," William vowed to friends. 

    The Globe article mentions the book that was released last week by Diana's private butler, Paul Burrell: 

    In his blockbuster book, A Royal Duty, Burrell reprints the letter Diana wrote to him before her death, in which she said a car accident was being planned to "make the path clear" for Charles to marry Camilla Parker-Bowles. 

    In his book, Burrell published a photocopy of the letter Diana wrote to him in October of 1996: 

    Her fears caused her to write the note to him in October 1996. Before sealing the envelope addressed just to "Paul," she told him, "I'm going to date this and I want you to keep it...just in case." 

    SNIP 

    According to palace insiders, the 21-year-old William is certain the men were inspired by the rants and raves of Queen Elizabeth's husband Prince Philip, who saw Diana as a threat to the British monarchy. 

    In my book, Diana, Queen of Heaven, the New World Religion 


    http://www.rumormillnews.com/DianaIndex.htm

    I published an MI6 document which shows that Prince Phillip, referred to as Edinburgh, was behind the plot to murder Diana.

    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/RUMORMILLNEWS/message/12746

    They planned and brought about the horrific car crash in Paris in 1997 that killed 36-year-old Diana, her Egyptian lover Dodi AI Fayed and their chauffeur Henri Paul. 

    The MI6 document shows that the Mercedes that Diana and Dodi were in the night they were killed had been stolen and altered to cause the accident. The following is from the MI6 document: 

    7. al Fayed Mercedes Limo stolen and returned with electronics missing. Reliable intel source confirms K_team involved. Source reports car rebuilt to respond to external radio controls. (Report filed) 

    Continuing from the GLOBE: 

    The men believed that they were acting with the approval of powerful figures in the political and industrial establishment, and senior members of the royal family, including Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. 

    "The mean-tempered Duke was furious that Diana had taken Muslim lovers, including Dodi and her former beau, heart surgeon Hasnat Khan," says one palace source. 

    "Philip is known to hate and deride people of color from Asia and the Middle East. When he's had too much to drink, he's been heard to curse and demean them. The prospect of Diana marrying Dodi, who would then be- come stepfather to the young princes, drove him into a rage." 

    The MI6 document shows Prince Phillip's hatred of Muslims: 

    Edinburgh (Prince Phillip _ed) sees serious threat to dynasty should relationship endure. Quote reported: "Such an affair is racially and morally repugnant and no son of a bedouin camel trader is fit for the mother of a future king," Edinburgh. (Report filed) 

    Quoting the GLOBE article: 

    When the tome was serialized in The Daily Mirror, a national daily newspaper, the name of the person Diana believed was behind the scheme was blacked out. 

    But, say insiders, William has been told it reads, "Prince Philip." 

    The EIR (Executive Intelligence Review -- a LaRouche Intelligence Organization, published an editorial in which they named the three MI6 agents they believed were involved in Diana's murder. 

    "THEY" MURDERED DIANA AND PLOTTED TO KILL MILOSOVIC


    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/RUMORMILLNEWS/message/12744

    From the EIR article: 

    Sir David Spedding--Head of MI6--was ordered to organise the murder of Diana, Princess of Wales and her friend Dodi Al Fayed. 

    David Spedding died recently. I could not find an article about his death, sorry. 

    These are the 3 agents that were named by the EIR: 

    Richard David Spearman--Chief of staff for Sir David Spedding. He was given an assignment and moved to Paris two weeks prior to the murder of Diana, Princess of Wales and Dodi Al Fayed. 

    Nicholas John Andrew Langman--Principal assistant to Richard Spearman. He was also involved with Spedding in the murder. 

    Richard Billing Dearlove--the incoming Head of MI6 in September 1999--was in Paris two weeks before the Aug. 31, 1997 crash. 

    The GLOBE says of William: 

    "He is now sure that his mother lived in fear of a ruthless group of conspirators who believed that she was a danger to the British throne and was close to bringing down the monarchy. 

    "Whether his grandfather was one of the plotters or not, he can't prove. 

    "But he believes that Philip wanted something to happen to Diana, and these political hit men took it from there." 

    In the article written by the EIR, they mention an editorial written by the STAR tabloid. 

    ROYALS ORDERED DI'S DEATH 

    PRINCESS Di was killed by British intelligence agents on orders from the top of the royal family, claim top_secret new bombshell documents.


    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/RUMORMILLNEWS/message/12745

    The new GLOBE article ends with: 

    "William will get to the bottom of it - even if he has to personally poke his finger into 
    his granddad's face and accuse him." 

    Most of the information that is published in the GLOBE article has been known and published since 1998 or 1999. What makes the GLOBE article compelling is the recent SENSATIONAL release of NEW information about 

    SECRET NSA TAPES COULD PROVIDE SENSATIONAL TESTIMONY TO SUPPORT PRINCESS DIANA'S DRAMATIC LETTER


    http://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/forum.cgi?read=38946

    This revelation by Gordon Thomas... a writer who I believe is only as good as his sources... but there is ample evidence outside of Gordon Thomas, which proves to me that the NSA tapes exist. 

    However, Thomas makes that claim there are "seven tapes. Each is the length of a Hollywood blockbuster. But if made public - say London intelligence sources - no movie could have their impact." 

    Thomas says that Diana is now known to have made these tapes months before her death. 

    "The tapes were shot in March, 1997, five months before her death. Diana sat 
    before a VHS video camera in the main drawing room of her home, Kensington Palace,, and spoke in all for 12 hours over a period of ten days." 

    Thomas says that "only one other person knew she had made the tapes, Dodi al-Fayed. His father, Mohammed al-Fayed, confirmed he wants the Royal Coroner, Dr Michael Burgess, to listen to the tapes - and compare them with the 1,050 intercepts NSA made later that year. " 

    Mohammed al-Fayed has sued the NSA in order to receive copies of the tapes. 

    The fact that the GLOBE has re-published this information makes me think that the "war" I have talked about -- the one between the Factions - may be getting ready to break out into the public. 

    It's my belief that the Bush Administration could care less about the Queen and her problems. The Queen is only kept in place by the New World Order. Without the backing of the NWO, the monarchy in England would go the way of the rest of the world's monarchies... in the dustbin of history!! 

    If the Bush administration releases the NSA tapes, will the NWO continue to back the English royal family, or will it allow the Royals to fall on their own swords? 

    It's well known that the two factions of the CIA control the tabloids. It seems to me that the GLOBE has just fired a warning shot across the bow of the NWO. It will be interesting to see what else surfaces in the coming weeks!

    Secret confessional videos made by Diana, Princess of Wales - which would have caused huge embarrassment to the royal family if they had been made public - have been destroyed. 

    Royal sources say the videos, recorded by a former BBC cameraman, who is now believed to be living abroad, were seized when detectives raided the home of Paul Burrell, Diana's former butler, in Cheshire two years ago. 

    The videos featured an emotional Diana discussing her life following her divorce from Prince Charles and an allegation that a courtier close to a senior royal raped one of his male colleagues. 

    This is the same allegation that Diana reputedly recorded on the infamous audio tape whose whereabouts is now the subject of a media frenzy. 

    On the audio tape the princess recorded George Smith, a former aide to Charles, alleging that he was raped by a senior courtier. Smith is also recorded saying he has seen the same courtier involved in a sex act with a member of the royal family. 

    The audio tape was among a number of items which Diana called her 'crown jewels', kept in a mahogany box that her sister, Lady Sarah McCorquodale, had asked Burrell to look after. 

    Until now the whereabouts of the videos, which contained a series of character assassinations of each royal, had remained as mysterious as the location of the audio tape. Now well-placed sources say the videos were handed to a third party and have been destroyed. 

    The news will intensify speculation on the whereabouts of the audio tape which is still thought to exist and is said by royal sources to constitute a 'ticking time-bomb'. Speculation has focused on whether Burrell has the tape, something that he has always denied. 

    However, during his trial, a royal protection officer recalled seeing Burrell remove a mahogany box in the early hours of one morning soon after Diana's death. The box itself was eventually returned to McCorquodale, minus its contents. 

    As a furore blew up around the publication of Burrell's book, A Royal Duty, the former butler hinted last week that he had more material that could damage the royal family, again triggering speculation about where the tape is. 

    Detective Chief Inspector Maxine de Brunner who was among the police who raided Burrell's home, recalls a meeting on 17 May 2001 with Fiona Shackleton, Charles's lawyer, and McCorquodale, during which the tape's whereabouts were discussed. 

    De Brunner recalled that Shackleton said: 'I know all about the rape [tape]. I was asked to make it go away - it was one of the lowest points in my professional career.' 

    When Shackleton then asked who had the tape, McCorquodale replied: 'Paul Burrell has it.' De Brunner was concerned about Shackleton's comments that she had been asked to 'make it go away' and told her superiors there might have been an attempt to suppress Smith's rape allegation - a claim he later retracted. 

    However Smith, who now works in a hospital in South Wales, repeated his story in the Mail on Sunday a year ago. Last week Smith told the paper he hoped the contents of the tape would not be made public. 'It would have terrible consequences,' he said. 

    In a sign that Clarence House is determined to put the matter behind it once and for all, Princes William and Harry issued an unprecedented joint appeal to Burrell not to make further revelations. William is to meet his mother's former aide soon in what palace insiders say represents an attempt to establish the whereabouts of the tape, the last remaining link to the rape allegation now that the videos have been destroyed and Smith has taken a vow of silence. 

    Smith's original allegation - ridiculed by senior courtiers - nevertheless presented Charles's aides with a serious dilemma. As Shackleton observed in a letter on 14 November 1996, setting out Smith's generous redundancy package: 'I suspect the bottom line in all this is that the [royal] household is caught over a barrel. Regardless of the accuracy or otherwise of George's allegations it would not presumably want those allegations to appear in print.' 

    The seeds of the current furore, which has caused acute consternation at Clarence House, were sown on 7 October 1996 when Smith walked into Hounslow police station in west London and said a man had threatened him with a gun as he made his way home. 

    Distressed and at times rambling incoherently, Smith cut a sorry figure to the officers who heard his claim. A former Army corporal, he had served in the Falklands and was traumatised by seeing friends burnt on HMS Sir Galahad, on which 50 guardsmen died as it was attacked by Argentine jets in June 1982. He became a heavy drinker and suffered mental illness. 

    Despite doubts about the veracity of his claim, police officers visited Smith's home and studied local closed-circuit TV footage. The footage revealed nothing to substantiate Smith's claim. 

    Here Smith's story might have been consigned to a yellowing file in the police station if he hadn't then told the officers he had been raped by a senior courtier. He recalled how one afternoon he had Sunday lunch at the courtier's house and had quaffed gin and tonics and champagne before falling asleep on a sofa. He awoke to find that his trousers had been pulled down and he had been sexually assaulted. 

    Smith later retracted this allegation, saying his alleged attacker was 'too powerful' for him to pursue it, but he repeated it to Diana on tape a few months later. 

    Whether the story is fact or fiction, the tape's existence continues to haunt the monarchy. One well-placed source, familiar with its contents, said: 'The royal family has to make a decision. If Burrell has the tape, do they try to buy him off or manage the explosion themselves? 

    'I am reminded of what Kissinger said: "If it's going to come out at the end, it may as well come out at the beginning."'


    Court fight over Diana videos:

    The royal family today faces a deepening crisis after the emergence of up to 20 secret videos in which Princess Diana lays bare her troubled marriage to Prince Charles



    Lady Diana's Secret Video Diary Reveals Her Grave Concerns About 'Assassination by Motor Vehicle':

    Britain's senior intelligence service, MI6, has briefed the Queen about secret video cassettes Princess Diana made three months after she wrote the letter in which she predicted she would be murdered in a car crash made to look like an "accident



    Princess Diana Predicted Her Own Assassination

    Paul Joseph Watson

    British newspapers today broke the astounding story of how Princess Diana wrote that she would be killed in an incident made to look like a car accident ten months before her death.

    The princess predicted: “This particular phase in my life is the most dangerous.” She said "XXXXXXXXXXX is planning ‘an accident’ in my car, brake failure and serious head injury in order to make the path clear for Charles to marry”.

    The blanked out 'xxxxxxx' is very likely to be MI5/MI6, who also recently did the dirty work of finishing off David Kelly.

    When Paul Burrell, Diana's former butler first hit the headlines last year I knew he still had something to say about Diana's death. It was likely that Burrell sought to wrap himself in as much publicity as possible to protect himself against a similar fate.

    Of course we've known for years that Diana's death couldn't have been anything but an assassination.

    - The unscheduled journey through the symbolic Pont de L'Alma tunnel (an ancient Pagan sacrificial site) took Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Al Fayed AWAY FROM their intended destination, Dodi's flat.

    - Just before the car entered the tunnel every police radio in Paris mysteriously died, preventing a quick response which could have saved Diana's life.

    - Just before the car entered the tunnel every security camera in the tunnel mysteriously died, preventing us from ever seeing footage of what caused the crash.

    - Eyewitnesses reported snipers and gunfire within the tunnel.
    These are just a few snippets from a mountain of evidence that this was an old-school hit.
    Diana was killed because she was pregnant with Dodi's child and the British Royal Family didn't want an Arab in their sacred bloodline. Diana herself remarked to reporters that there would be 'a big surprise' from her a few days before her death.






    US Spy Tapes Reveal Diana Was Pregnant 

    by GORDON THOMAS

    EXPLOSIVE tapes on the secret life of Princess Diana will prove that she was pregnant and intended to marry Dodi Al Fayed, it was claimed last night. 

    American secret agents regularly monitored Diana's conversations and collated 1,000 secret documents using its "spy in the sky", the National Security Agency. 

    They were obtained by its Echelon satellite surveillance system and contain highly sensitive material including her marriage plans, her views on Prince Philip, who was known to be highly critical of her, and new details of her love affair with James Hewitt. Now, lawyers acting for Mohamed Al Fayed are trying to obtain the tapes through America's Freedom of Information Act. 

    They hope to present the evidence at Diana's inquest, which is expected to take place next year. 

    The covert monitoring was controlled from the ultra-secret NSA base at Menwith Hill in the north of England during the last weeks of Diana's affair with Dodi. 

    A spokesman for Dodi's father, Mohamed Al Fayed, the millionaire owner of Harrods, said: "Mr Al Fayed believes that those intercepts will reveal conversations in which Princess Diana discussed her engagement to Dodi and her pregnancy.



    Of course, this wasn't the only reason. Diana was a painful thorn in the side of the elitists with her ability to take any issue and immediately bring it to the forefront of public attention. In a way she was like David Kelly, a disgruntled former employee who knew too much and had too big a chip on her shoulders to be tolerated.

    I look forward to the long-awaited inquest and further revelations from the brave Paul Burrell to further destroy the establishment media's wild and unsusbstantiated theory that Diana's death was an accident caused by a drunk driver.

    Keep your eyes open and turn the television off.
    Paul Joseph Watson.

    Court fight over Diana videos:

    The royal family today faces a deepening crisis after the emergence of up to 20 secret videos in which Princess Diana lays bare her troubled marriage to Prince Charles.


    Court fight over Diana videos

    Christian Science Monitor
    The royal family today faces a deepening crisis after the emergence of up to 20 secret videos in which Princess Diana lays bare her troubled marriage to Prince Charles. 

    The tapes could be shown as part of a legal battle in a dispute over their ownership. 

    The latest row centres on about 21 hours of footage shot in the early Nineties by Diana's voice coach Peter Settelen, who was training the Princess to speak in public.

    Should Mr Settelen win the case, he could make millions if he decides to sell them to a broadcaster. 

    To establish rightful ownership, the videos will almost certainly have to be played in court, meaning Diana would effectively testify from beyond the grave about her contempt for Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles. 

    Legal action over ownership could start as early as Wednesday if police do not return the tapes to the voice coach. 

    Mr Settelen, 52, of Isleworth, insists he has copyright of the videos and is preparing to take the case to the High Court. But Diana's family say the tapes belong to them and want them destroyed. 

    The tapes were seized by police in January-2001 when they raided the home of Diana's former butler Paul Burrell. They have been held at a secret location ever since. 

    Last night, after a year of legal wrangling over ownership, Mr Settelen issued a statement, which is effectively an ultimatum to police to hand over what he says is his property. 

    The court will need to establish whether Diana was solely acting out her elocution lessons or providing a testament about her life. Legal sources say that the only way this point can be established is by watching the videos. 

    Lady Sarah McCorquodale, Diana's sister and executor of her will, is believed to be one of only a handful of people who have seen the videos since they were recorded. They are understood to show the Princess at her lowest ebb, miserable and downcast. 

    Mr Settelen's solicitor, Marcus Rutherford, has confirmed that legal proceedings will begin on Wednesday if the tapes are not returned. 

    "We want this matter resolved as early as possible," he said. 

    At first it was believed that there were only six tapes, but lawyers acting for Mr Settelen believe the Metropolitan Police are holding up to 20. 

    The content of the tapes was regarded as so sensitive that the prosecution agreed not to use them in Mr Burrell's Old Bailey trial, which collapsed last year. 

    Mr Settelen regards the tapes as an intimate record of his professional relationship with the Princess. He insists that he will keep them confidential despite their huge potential value. 
    A Scotland Yard spokesman said any dispute over the ownership of the tapes would have to be settled in court, and added: "Negotiations are continuing to establish the ownership of a number of items in our possession."


    Lady Diana's Secret Video Diary Reveals Her Grave Concerns About 'Assassination by Motor Vehicle':

    Britain's senior intelligence service, MI6, has briefed the Queen about secret video cassettes Princess Diana made three months after she wrote the letter in which she predicted she would be murdered in a car crash made to look like an "accident."






    Lady Diana's Secret Video Diary Reveals Her Grave Concerns About 'Assassination by Motor Vehicle'


    American Free Press
    Britain's senior intelligence service, MI6, has briefed the Queen about secret video cassettes Princess Diana made three months after she wrote the letter in which she predicted she would be murdered in a car crash made to look like an "accident." She and her lover, Dodi al-Fayed, died in a car crash in Paris in August, 1997.

    The royal briefing followed interviews with several British expatriates in California by a senior intelligence officer.

    One of those questioned was involved in the London video-production industry at the time Diana made her video diaries. Another is known to have had "a close relationship" with a male member of the Kensington Palace staff when Diana lived there. The interviews came after MI6 became aware of Paul Burrell's new book. It may become the subject of a breach of copyright action centering on the letters it contains. 

    One security service source said her video diaries clearly show her "obsession" of meeting a stage-managed death at the hands of one of the intelligence agencies she believed were shadowing her every move since her divorce from Prince Charles.

    Evidence to support her fears has been reinforced by the admission of America's "spy in the sky" agency, the National Security Agency, NSA, that it holds some 1,050 transcripts of conversations Diana made in the last weeks of her life.

    But a former MI6 officer, Richard Tomlinson has also claimed that, while working for the service, he saw a 
    document "that was a plan to murder the Serbian leader, Slobodan Milosevic-a plan that has unsettling parallels to the way Di and Dodi died. The MI6 document stated that the 'accident' should happen in a tunnel where the chance of injury is high."

    The NSA tapes are stored in a climate-controlled vault at NSA headquarters at Fort George Meade outside Washington.

    The agency controls a worldwide eavesdropping system normally only used against America's enemies.

    Some of the taped conversations are said to refer to Diana's campaign for a global ban on landmines.

    Dodi's father, Mohammed al-Fayed, the millionaire owner of Harrods, has waged an unsuccessful battle in the U.S. courts to obtain copies of the tapes.

    He believes they will confirm his own fears of "intelligence service complicity" in the deaths of Diana and his son.

    Ari Ben-Menashe, a former Mossad intelligence officer, who was approached by Mr Al-Fayed for help after the deaths said, "there is no doubt there was an intelligence presence in the run-up to their deaths".

    Such claims will fuel the demand for a full inquiry into the events around the deaths.

    The royal coroner, Dr. Michael Burgess, has al ready indicated he will hold an inquest. But no date has been set. At the earliest it could be sometime next year.

    Friends of Diana have indicated the full truth may only emerge if there is a Hutton-style enquiry.

    Diana filmed her secret video diaries on a camera her former voice coach, Peter Sutherland, gave her.

    But he has no knowledge that the camera was used by Diana to make her video diaries.

    Originally, he had made six tapes with Diana to help improve her confidence when speaking in public.

    Sutherland has been trying to retrieve those tapes. Their existence emerged after the collapse of the Old Bailey trial of Paul Burrell last year.

    He was acquitted on all charges of stealing Diana's belongings after the queen made a dramatic intervention in the case.


    Diana 'feared car accident plot'

    Princess Diana feared the brakes of her car were going to be tampered with, 10 months before she died in a crash in Paris, her former butler has claimed.

    DIANA LETTER SENSATION: 'THEY WILL TRY TO KILL ME'

    PRINCESS DIANA claimed there was a plot to kill her in a car crash in a handwritten letter only 10 months before she died. She gave it to her butler Paul Burrell with orders that he should keep it as "insurance" for the future.


    ROYAL WARNED DI: YOU ARE BEING SPIED ON

    PAUL'S DAD: OUR SON WAS INNOCENT

    THE parents of chauffeur Henri Paul were still insisting yesterday their son was not responsible for the crash which killed Princess Diana.

    DI TOLD ME SHE WAS IN DANGER
    DIANA confided in a royal biographer that she feared for her life just two months before her death. Ingrid Seward was told by Diana that she felt her life had been in danger, in a heart-to-heart chat at Kensington Palace.


    Royal Conspiracy: Princess Diana Names Her Killer

    Did Princess Diana know who was plotting to kill her? Diana gave a handwritten letter to her butler Paul Burrell, 10 months before she died, to keep as "insurance" for the future. In the letter, revealed in Burrell's book "A Royal Duty," the princess knew she was marked as an "inconvenient woman."

    Diana murder plot name in letter revealed to be Prince Charles

    PRINCESS Diana believed Prince Charles wanted her killed in an accident when she was plagued by anxiety and feared for her safety.She told of her worries in her now infamous note which she handed to butler Paul Burrell as "insurance" on the day she wrote it in October 1996, 10 months before she died in a Paris car crash.Burrell censored the note when he disclosed its existence in his book last year by blanking the words "my husband" from the text.


    The Murder of Princess Diana
    • Special Report
       
      [The] death of Princess Diana may have its nexus more to the ambulance ride and the treatment during that ride than to the accident itself. With billions of people throughout the planet interested in her death and the cause thereof, it is a deep mystery of why the focus of investigators and media circumvent this critical area of inquiry, which paradoxically seemed to be a mystery to the French Interior Minister and the Police Chief of Paris as well. Our mystery ties in as to why a VIP may have been traveling without a police escort in an ambulance taking, without acceptable explanation, one hour to get to a hospital. The answers have been to transport the injured Diana safely and to "avoid bumps." In that case, it seems every other ambulance throughout the world operates on a different basis, in recognizing a need to get an injured person quickly to a hospital; here, where a team of doctors, awaiting Diana's arrival, may have saved her. To our minds, and the minds of any reasonable man or woman, the one hour trip is inexcusable and carries compelling questions which demand detailed answers.
       
    • Diana — was it an accident or was she killed?  (It's pretty clear that she was murdered.)

    • Princess Diana Was The Target
       
    • The Diana Forum — Why did it take an hour to get Diana to the hospital? Why did the ambulance stop for ten minutes when just 600 yards away from it? Was she murdered, or brought close to death, by British agents when the ambulance was stopped? Was the purpose of this 10-minute stop to induce an abortion?
       
       
    • Diana's Grave Secret: Police To Probe Charles' Murder Plot
       
      It was clear that with opinion polls showing over 90% of Britons think Diana was murdered, something would have to be done to mount at least a semblance of justice. And a semblance is what we have here.
      The appointment of an already knighted senior police officer, Sir John Stevens to the investigation, indicates that the whole exercise is a sham. Furthermore, Sir John has assigned Commander David Armond to lead the inquiry. Commander Armond is a member of the Met's anti-terrorist branch which is a very political position ...
      All this is reminiscent of the case of the murdered weapons inspector David Kelly. The British establishment simply engaging in the usual sham of investigating itself.
       
    • Joe Vialls: Prince Charles Implicated in Murder of Princess Diana
       
      Logic dictates Princess Di was deliberately frightened into writing the incriminating letter before her death, but science suggests that she did not write the letter at all.
       
    • Document says Diana's car was replacement
      (That web page was "disappeared" but is available here.)
       
      The car in the crash that killed Princess Diana in Paris was a last-minute replacement either meant as a media diversion or because the vehicle she was supposed to take failed to start, according to British government documents released Tuesday [2005-03-15].
       
    • Xymphora on Henri Paul's mysterious payments
       
     
      

    So here's a possible scenario: Diana was (possibly) pregnant by Dodi. The US/British power elite either knew this (perhaps her doctor's office was bugged) or were afraid it might be true. The prospect of someone of Arab descent (and perhaps a Muslim too) being in line to the British throne was anathema to the racist British establishment, and the Americans were concerned about what they saw as Diana's populist political activities (campaigning for an abolition of land mines and so on, with maybe the international arms trade targetted next) so the decision was made to eliminate her. The Mercedes in which she was supposed to leave the Ritz Hotel with Dodi failed to start (as intended by the plotters) and a replacement was produced. The brakes on the replacement car had been sabotaged. Henri Paul, their driver, sped off, followed by paparazzi, one of whom was in contact by phone with the driver of a white Fiat. The Fiat entered the Pont d'Alma Tunnel as Diana's car approached it. Somewhere in the tunnel, with the white Fiat just in front of the Mercedes, a powerful flashgun, aimed at Paul's car, was set off. This blinded Paul, and he hit the brakes, which did not work properly, ensuring that the car would crash. But the crash did not kill Diana. Much to the chagrin of the plotters, she was still alive. An ambulance (previously arranged by the plotters) was brought up and took her away, allegedly taking her to the Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital, 4 miles away. During this trip (which may or may not have involved an abortion) something was done to ensure that Diana would be dead on arrival at the hospital, or would die shortly afterward. The potential problem was thus removed.

    Diana, cause of death: ambulance ride which took one hour to travel 6 kilometers, 4 miles, to hospital. Why has no one focused on this platform of inquiry?
    1. Assuming driver, Henri Paul, was at fault due to intoxication, accept the reality that Princess Diana was not dead after the accident. She was very much alive and talking.
    2. The hospital to which she was taken, Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital, was 4 miles (6 kilometers) from the accident, occurring after midnight on a holiday weekend, with many away and the city streets quiet.
    3. Accept the reality that there has been no focus by the media on the at minimum, one hour, ambulance ride to travel 4 miles.
    4. Accept the reality that the time she slipped into the throes of death was during the one hour plus ambulance ride to the hospital.
    5. Le Parisien and Reuters reported that during the ambulance trip, the ambulance stopped to give her a massive injection of adrenaline.
    6. Le Parisien and Reuters further reported that the Interior Minister, Jean-Pierre Chevenement, and the police chief for Paris, France, Phillippe Massoni, two of the most powerful figures in the land, were mystified about the whereabouts of the ambulance due to its failure to timely reach the hospital.
    7. Assuming that ambulances in Paris, France in 1997 have radios or phones, answer why two men, among the most powerful in France, couldn't pick up a telephone and get an answer to the mystery.
    8. Further, consider whether the ambulance was sent without a police escort, and, if so, why.
    9. Subsequently the hospital asserted Diana received no injection of adrenaline during the ambulance ride. Was she treated at the hospital, upon her arrival, without full knowledge of what transpired during the ambulance ride? What did transpire? At the hospital was she (again) injected with adrenaline? Who was on the ambulance? What happened during an inordinate one hour trip with a VIP on board?
    10. Why isn't the media actively and aggressively pursuing this important matter? If a parent found out it took one hour for an ambulance with his or her child to travel four miles after midnight to a hospital, would the parent be justified in being quite angry and entitled to know what happened. If that child was Prince William, would the focus of the inquiry be different than it apparently is with Diana? Would the English newspapers, and others throughout the world, declare: 'One Hour to Get to the Hospital!'
    CONCLUSION: Based on the above, one can fairly assert that the death of Princess Diana may have its nexus more to the ambulance ride and the treatment during that ride than to the accident itself. With billions of people throughout the planet interested in her death and the cause thereof, it is a deep mystery of why the focus of investigators and media circumvent this critical area of inquiry, which paradoxically seemed to be a mystery to the French Interior Minister and the Police Chief of Paris as well. Our mystery ties in as to why a VIP may have been traveling without a police escort in an ambulance taking, without acceptable explanation, one hour to get to a hospital. The answers have been to transport the injured Diana safely and to "avoid bumps." In that case, it seems every other ambulance throughout the world operates on a different basis, in recognizing a need to get an injured person quickly to a hospital; here, where a team of doctors, awaiting Diana's arrival, may have saved her. To our minds, and the minds of any reasonable man or woman, the one hour trip is inexcusable and carries compelling questions which demand detailed answers.

                                 Princess Diana Murder Cover-Up Turns Deadly

    by Jeffrey Steinberg
    Nearly three years after the Paris car crash that claimed the lives of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed, the cover-up of that tragedy has taken a deadly turn, prompting some experts to recall the pileup of corpses that followed the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Over the course of four years, after President Kennedy was shot on Nov. 22, 1963, at least 37 eyewitnesses and other sources of evidence about the crime, including one member of the infamous Warren Commission, which oversaw the cover-up, died under mysterious circumstances. On May 5, 2000, police in the south of France found a badly burned body inside the wreckage of a car, deep in the woods near Nantes. The body was so charred that it took police nearly a month before DNA tests confirmed that the dead man was Jean-Paul "James" Andanson, a 54-year-old millionaire photographer, who was among the paparazzi stalking Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed during the week before their deaths. From the day of the fatal crash in the Place de l'Alma tunnel, that killed Diana, Dodi, and driver Henri Paul, and severely injured bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones, Andanson had been at the center of the controversy. Mohamed Al-Fayed, the father of Dodi Fayed, and the owner of Harrods Department Store in London and the Paris Ritz Hotel, has labelled the Aug. 31, 1997 crash a murder, ordered by the British royal family, and most likely executed through agents and assets of the British secret intelligence service MI6--with collusion from French officials, whose cooperation in the cover-up would have been essential. At least seven eyewitnesses to the crash said that they saw a white Fiat Uno and a motorcycle speed out of the tunnel, seconds after the crash. Forensic tests have confirmed that a white Fiat Uno collided with the Mercedes carrying Diana and Dodi, and that this collision was a significant factor in the crash. Several eyewitnesses told police that they saw a powerful flash of light just seconds before the Mercedes swerved out of control and crashed into the 13th pillar of the Alma tunnel. That bright light--either a camera flash or a far more powerful flash of a laser weapon--was probably fired by the passenger on the back of the speeding motorcycle. Both the motorcycle and the white Fiat fled the crash scene, and police claim they have been unable to locate either vehicle, or identify the drivers or the passengers.

    Andanson's White Fiat

    Andanson had been in and around Sardinia during the last week of August 1997, as Diana and Dodi vacationed in the Mediterranean. He joined several dozen other paparazzi, who were stalking the couple's every move. He was back in France on Aug. 30, the day that Diana and Dodi flew to Paris. And that is where the facts about Andanson's activities and whereabouts get very fuzzy. For reasons that he never revealed, sometime before dawn on Aug. 31, 1997, less than six hours after the crash in the Alma tunnel, Andanson boarded a flight at Orly Airport near Paris, bound for Corsica. Andanson claimed that he was not in Paris earlier in the evening, when the crash occurred, but he never produced any evidence, save a receipt for the purchase of gasoline elsewhere in France (which he could have doctored or obtained from another person), to prove he was not in the city. His son James and his daughter Kimberly told police that they thought their father was grape-harvesting in the Bordeaux region. Andanson's wife Elizabeth claimed that she had been at home with her husband all night, at their country home, Le Manoir de la Bergerie, in Cher, until he abruptly left for Orly, at 3:45 a.m., to catch the crack-of-dawn flight to Corsica. Pressed on her version of the story, Mrs. Anderson later admitted to reporters and police that her husband was constantly on the run, and she could have been mistaken about the night in question. She told The Express, a British newspaper, "It was always very difficult to recall James's precise movements because he was always coming and going. The family was very used to that and so never paid a great deal of attention to the times he came and went." What makes Andanson's precise itinerary the night of the fatal crash so vital is this: He owned and drove a white Fiat Uno. The car was repainted shortly after the Aug. 31, 1997 Alma tunnel crash, and was sold by Andanson in October 1997. And, although the official report of the French authorities investigating the crash concluded that Andanson's car was not involved in the crash, French forensic reports made available to The Express told a very different story. One report in the files of Judge Hervé Stephan, the chief investigating magistrate in the Diana-Dodi crash probe, described the tests on Andanson's Fiat: "The comparative analysis of the infrared spectra characterizing the vehicle's original paint, reference Bianco 210, and the trace on the side-view mirror of the Mercedes shows that their absorption bands are identical." In laymen's terms, the paint scratches from the Fiat found on the side-view mirror of the Mercedes were identical to the paint samples taken from the matching spot on Andanson's Fiat. The report continued: "The comparative analysis between the infrared spectra characterizing the black polymer taken from the vehicle's fender, and the trace taken from the door of the Mercedes, show that their absorption bands are identical." In short, despite the French investigators' endorsement of Andanson's alibi, the forensic tests strongly suggested that his car may have been the white Fiat Uno involved in the fatal crash. John Macnamara, the Harrods director of security, and a retired senior Scotland Yard supervisor of investigations, told reporters: "Mr. Andanson had for some time been a prime suspect who had relentlessly pursued Diana and Dodi prior to their arrival in Paris. We have always believed that Andanson was at the scene and that more investigation should have been done into his possible involvement." Macnamara added, "We believe that his death is no coincidence and that this is a line of inquiry which may help to discover the truth. Was Mr. Andanson killed because of what he knew? That is a question we want answered."
    The `Suicide' Soap Opera
    Needless to say, Andanson's death stirred up renewed interest in Diana's death at a most inopportune time for the British royals, and those in France who abetted the cover-up. Sometime in September, an appellate court in Paris will rule on Al-Fayed's motion to order Judge Stephan to reopen the crash probe, based on the fact that Stephan shut down his probe before certain vital avenues of inquiry were fully explored, and in contradiction to his own interim report, which cited several glaring paradoxes in the evidence that remained unresolved at the point that he abruptly closed down his investigation last year and blamed the crash on driver Henri Paul. For example, U.S. intelligence agencies, including the National Security Agency, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the Defense Intelligence Agency, have all acknowledged, in response to Freedom of Information Act queries, that they have thousands of pages of documents on Princess Diana. Those documents, for the most part, remain under lock and key. In addition to those documents and other relevant evidence, it has been recently exposed that a secret U.S.-U.K. joint surveillance program, code-named "Project Echelon," had apparently been involved in round-the-clock monitoring of Princess Diana's telephone conversations, while she was at home in England and travelling around the globe. Until the contents of these U.S. government files and electronic intercepts have been reviewed by French investigators, Al-Fayed's lawyers have argued, the probe cannot be considered complete. And the U.S. Justice Department continues to stonewall on indicting three Americans who were involved in an attempted $20 million extortion of Al-Fayed in April 1998, centered around purported "CIA documents" proving that British intelligence assassinated Diana and Dodi. While the "CIA documents" seized from one of the plotters have been confirmed to have been clever forgeries, questions remain about the accuracy of the content of the documents. In a flagrant effort to dampen interest in the Andanson factor, the June 11 Mail on Sunday, a pro-royalist tabloid, ran a story proclaiming "Wife's Affair Led to Paparazzi Man's Car Blaze Suicide." The Mail on Sunday dutifully peddled the French government's cover story: "The millionaire photographer who trailed Diana, Princess of Wales in St. Tropez just days before her death, committed suicide when he discovered his wife was cheating on him, French police have revealed. . . . The eccentric millionaire--who was hailed by colleagues as one of the godfathers of paparazzi photography, and who flew a Union Flag over his house to show his love of Britain--was facing a family crisis at the time of his death." Mail on Sunday reporter Ian Sparks quoted an unnamed colleague of Andanson's at the Sipa Agency in Paris, making the preposterously contradictory claim that Andanson "was desperate to save his marriage. We would never have guessed he would do something so terrible." He committed suicide to save his marriage! Right. A French police spokesman told Sparks, "He took his own life by dousing himself and the car with petrol and then setting light to it." Andanson's widow Elizabeth, and their son James have rejected the idea that Andanson's death was suicide. Sources close to the family told EIR that they have pressed French officials to conduct a murder investigation into Andanson's death 400-miles from his home. The sources dismiss the bogus "marital problems" story and additionally report that Andanson was in high spirits over his new job with the Sipa Agency.

    The Plot Thickens

    Just after midnight on June 16, just one week after Andanson's death was first made public, three masked men armed with handguns, broke into the Sipa office in Paris, shooting a security guard in the foot. The three assailants dismantled all of the security cameras in the office, and proceeded to enter several specific offices, clearly aware of exactly what they were looking for. They made off with several cameras, laptop computers, and computer hard drives. Sipa's office employs more than 200 people, and operates 24-hours a day. The three invaders spent three hours in the office, holding other employees hostage. According to one of the hostages, the men were never concerned about the French police arriving at the scene. This hostage was convinced that the three "burglars" were themselves working for some branch of the French Secret Service. Furthermore, the source confirmed that Andanson had worked for French and, undoubtedly, British security agencies. The owner of Sipa, Sipa Hioglou, has worked closely with French intelligence, and, not surprisingly, has been one of the primary sources of the "marital problems/suicide" cover story about Andanson's death, "confessing" to French police and reporters that Andanson had confided in him that he planned to take his own life. Hioglou, in the days following the bizarre break-in and hostage siege of his office, also told police that he suspected that the raid was done on behalf of a disgruntled celebrity who was angry that her picture had been taken by a Sipa paparazzo without her permission. In stark contrast, other Sipa employees have told the police that the idea that Andanson committed suicide was preposterous, and that they suspect that the break-in was related to his death.
    What Is Going On?
    The Sipa raid, the obvious work of French Secret Service assets, raises some very troubling questions. If Macnamara and Al-Fayed are right, and Andanson was at the crash site on Aug. 31, 1997, and his white Fiat was the car that collided with the Mercedes, what documentation exists of his presence at the tunnel? What photographs exist of the crash scene, and what do they reveal? Was some of this material seized from the Sipa offices in the recent break-in, to assure that it never sees the light of day? Evidence has recently come to light, that within hours of the crash, British and French secret service agencies carried out a series of similar break-ins at the homes and offices of several photo-agency personnel, in a desperate search for photos of the crash site that may have been transmitted in the hours immediately after the Alma tunnel collision, and before word of Princess Diana's death was made public. EIR has obtained copies of sworn statements from two London-based photographers, Darryn Paul Lyons and Lionel Cherruault, which reveal that British intelligence was hyperactive in the hours immediately after the Alma tunnel crash, desperately seeking any revealing photographs that might have been spirited out of Paris. Lyons identified himself as the "Chairman of `Big Pictures,' . . . an international photographic agency in London, New York, and Sydney, specializing in obtaining and selling unique and exclusive celebrity-based photographs." At 12:30 a.m. on Aug. 31, 1997, Lyons received a phone call from a Paris paparazzo, Lorent Sola, who said that he had a dozen photographs of the accident at the Alma tunnel. Sola offered to electronically transmit the photos to Lyons immediately, and Lyons rushed off to his office, receiving the high-resolution photographs at approximately 3 a.m. Lyons immediately began negotiating with several large news organizations in the United States and Britain to sell the pictures for $250,000. Lyons and Sola conferred after word of Diana's death was made public, and they decided to withdraw the offer of the pictures. Copies of the photos were placed in Lyons' office safe. Sometime between 11 p.m. on Aug. 31 and 12:30 a.m. on Sept. 1, the electricity at Lyons' office was mysteriously cut, although no other power outages in the office building or the neighborhood occurred. Lyons, convinced that either the office was being robbed, or bombed, called the police. In his sworn statement, Lyons declared that he believed that secret service agents had broken into his office and either searched the premises or planted surveillance and listening devices. Lionel Cherruault, a London-based photo journalist for Sipa Agency, in his sworn statement, reported that, at 1:45 a.m. on Aug. 31, 1997, he received a call at his home from a freelance photographer in Florida, informing him that he was expecting to soon be in possession of photographs of the tunnel crash. Cherruault told the Florida contact that he was interested. After word of Diana's death was announced, the deal fell through. But Cherruault, who was in contact with his boss at Sipa, stated that, at approximately 3:30 a.m. on Sept. 1, while he and his wife and daughter were asleep, his home was broken into, his wife's car was stolen, and his car was moved. Computer disks used for transmitting photographs, and other electronic equipment, were stolen, and the front door of their home was left wide open. Even though cash, credit cards, and jewelry were visible in the study where the burglars stole the computer equipment, none of those valuables were taken, making it clear that this was not an ordinary break-in. The next day, a police officer came to Cherruault's home and confirmed that the break-in was clearly the work of "Special Branch, MI5, MI6, call it what you like, this was no ordinary burglary." The officer said that the home had "been targetted." The man, whose name Cherruault was unable to recall, assured him "not to worry, your lives were not in danger," according to the sworn statement. The official police report of the Cherruault break-in, which has been reviewed by EIR, confirmed that "The computer equipment stolen contained a huge library of royal photographs and appears to have been the main target for the perpetrators."

    Another Thread of the Cover-Up

    One of the other still-unresolved issues in the Alma crash probe, three years after the fact, revolves around the medical evidence. Al-Fayed has been battling in court in Britain for the right to participate in the official inquest into the death of Princess Diana, arguing that since both Diana and Dodi died in the crash, therefore he should be entitled to officially participate in both inquests. The courts have preliminarily ruled that he has the right to contest the Royal Coroner's rejection of his participation in the Diana inquest, which will only occur after the French appellate process has been completed, sometime later this year. However, in April of this year, the attorneys representing Al-Fayed received a copy of a suppressed memorandum, prepared by Professors Dominique Lecomte and Andre Lienhart, two French forensic pathologists working for Judge Stephan, suggesting that British authorities, including the Royal Coroner, Dr. Burton, had interceded to conceal some aspects of the official British autopsy. The two French doctors were in London on June 23, 1998, where they met with British coroners Drs. Burton and Burgess, forensic pathologist Dr. Chapman, and Scotland Yard Superintendant Jeffrey Rees. They were given copies of the English autopsy report on Princess Diana, but, according to their contemporaneous notes on the meeting, were told that the document was provided for their "private and personal use," and that it should not be included in the formal file of Judge Stephan. Any material in that official investigative file was automatically made available to attorneys representing all the interested parties in the French probe, including Al-Fayed's attorneys. This two-and-a-half year suppression of the Lecomte-Lienhart memorandum has once again raised serious questions about the legitimacy of the "official" autopsy of the Princess of Wales, including questions that arose at the time of her death, as to whether she was pregnant. The mayhem surrounding the deaths of Diana and Dodi, and now Andanson, raises questions about the circumstances in Paris on that night in late August 1997--questions that the House of Windsor in general, and Prince Philip in particular, have long sought to suppress. The time may be fast approaching that the well-orchestrated three-year cover-up is about to blow apart, and at least part of the truth about the death of the "People's Princess" see the light of day.

    And that is something that the Windsors and the mandarins of MI6 may not be able to survive.

    New `Diana Wars' in Britain
    Put Focus on LaRouche

    by Jeffrey Steinberg

    On June 4, the London Daily Telegraph, the flagship publication of the British monarchy and the Club of the Isles' Hollinger Corp., published a crass slander against Lyndon LaRouche, headlined "U.S. Cult Is Source of Theories." The article charged that LaRouche, EIR, and the New Federalist newspaper were all behind a "Diana conspiracy industry," and that LaRouche, in league with London-based billionaire Mohamed Al Fayed, was "accusing the Queen of ordering the assassination of Diana, Princess of Wales." Apart from the fact that the article was pure fiction, there were two significant things about the story--which accompanied a much longer article that trashed a British Independent Television (ITV) documentary, entitled "Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash," which had aired the previous night, and which had been followed by a live televised debate on the Princess's death: First, the Daily Telegraph smear was authored by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, an avowed British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) stringer, who spent from late 1992 through the spring of 1997 in Washington, D.C. orchestrating a similar slander campaign against President Bill Clinton. Allowing Evans-Pritchard's by-line to appear on the "icebox" slander of LaRouche was a blunder of strategic significance, which underscored the truth behind LaRouche's charge that all of President Clinton's enemies, including in the upper echelons of the British oligarchy, are also enemies of LaRouche. The blunder also underscored the fact that there is a "battle royal" under way within the British ruling class, which goes far beyond the issue of the death of Princess Diana. The battle touches on matters of global geopolitics, and how the British oligarchy intends to survive the worst, systemic financial breakdown crisis in modern history. The "Torygraph" slander also marked a decisive break in the Club of the Isles' policy of keeping LaRouche's name out of print in Britain. It has been long-recognized by the City of London-centered financier oligarchical grouping headed by the Royal Consort, Prince Philip, that LaRouche and EIR have been a powerful factor in exposing their dirty machinations worldwide, and have also been an important contributing factor in an eruption of political warfare against the Windsors, even from among the British elites. The LaRouche role in the Windsors' troubles came to the surface in 1994, when EIR published "The Coming Fall of the House of Windsor," a Special Report exposing the role of Prince Philip and his World Wildlife Fund (WWF, now the World Wide Fund for Nature), in triggering the worst genocide in modern history in the Great Lakes region of Africa. Even as EIR's exposés of the Windsors circulated throughout the world diplomatic community and among factions of the British establishment, with rare exceptions, the name "LaRouche" was banned from the British press.[FIGURE 1] All that changed, beginning with the June 4 Evans-Pritchard diatribe. The article not only accused LaRouche and EIR of heading the "conspiracy industry," and of accusing "the Queen of being the world's foremost drug dealer." But also, it linked LaRouche to Mohamed Al Fayed, Harrods department store owner and the father of the late Dodi Fayed, in a campaign, Evans-Pritchard wrote, "aimed at discrediting Tiny Rowland, Mr. Al Fayed's longtime business rival, ... according to Francesca Pollard, a former operative for the Fayed security machine." As EIR revealed in its 1993 unauthorized biography of Rowland, Pollard, whose family was robbed of its fortune by Rowland, was threatened and then paid off by Rowland, to be a source of trash against Al Fayed. Following the Aug. 31, 1997 car crash in Paris that claimed the life of Princess Diana, Dodi Fayed, and their driver, Henri Paul, Rowland was deployed by the British royal family to lead a slander and harassment campaign aimed at silencing Mohamed Al Fayed, who has stated publicly that he is "99.9% certain" that Diana and Dodi were the victims of a murder plot.

    Battle of the Documentaries

    The trigger for the slanders against LaRouche was the airing of the ITV documentary on the evening of June 3, followed by a live TV debate, which featured this author. The ITV documentary provided dramatic new evidence supporting the case that Diana and Dodi were murdered (see "New Holes in Cover-Up of Diana Murder Plot," EIR, June 12, 1998), and highlighted several investigative leads that were first published in EIR, including the possibility that driver Paul was blinded by an anti-personnel laser. During the live TV round-table debate, this author discussed Princess Diana's decade-long war with the House of Windsor, including the impact of her November 1995 BBC Panorama interview, in which she charged that her estranged husband, Prince Charles, was unfit to be King; and, the reaction of the establishment to her actions, which amounted to a collective shriek, "Off with her head!" Rowland's personal involvement in the campaign to cover up the truth about the Paris crash, and to destroy Mohamed Al Fayed, was also aired, much to the chagrin of the producer and host of a Channel 4 "Dispatches" documentary on the Diana death that aired the following night. Channel 4 tried to dismiss as fantasy every piece of evidence refuting the "drunk driver" theory.[FIGURE 2] The Channel 4 "Dispatches" program included a slander of this author and EIR that was even more explicit on the question of Prince Philip. Although this author was interviewed on camera for more than two hours by Channel 4 host Martyn Gregory, less than one minute of that interview was shown on the hour-long "Dispatches" diatribe. And, that brief segment waxed hysterical about EIR's refusal to "rule out" the possibility that Prince Philip ordered the murder of Diana and Dodi. Indeed, British press accounts of the relationship between Prince Philip and Lady Diana, particularly during the brief period of her relationship with Dodi Fayed, revealed that the Royal Consort was in a constant blind rage over Diana's public disdain for the Windsors, and particularly her implicit challenge to their legitimacy on the British throne. Gregory was given several pages in the Sunday Telegraph on June 7, to continue denouncing LaRouche, EIR, and Al Fayed. In an article regurgitating the "Dispatches" disinformation, Gregory wrote: "The numerous hares Mohamed Fayed has set running in the colours of sundry conspiracy theories are typified by Geoffrey [sic] Steinberg, chief reporter of Executive Intelligence Review, a small-circulation American magazine that specializes in conspiracy theories. He was yet another guest on the side of the motley crew supporting ITV's Wednesday night programme. "This is the man who told Dispatches he `could not rule out the possibility' that Prince Philip was involved in the `murder of Diana.' We decided not to take Steinberg seriously at all."
       Defending `Mr. Big'
    Not so for MI5, another British intelligence agency. On June 10, Francis Wheen, a writer for MI5's favorite leak sheet, the political satire magazine Private Eye, penned another anti-LaRouche diatribe, in the London Guardian. Wheen, who had published smears against LaRouche in 1996, fixated on EIR's targetting of Prince Philip, whom Wheen affectionately referred to as "Mr. Big." "Many weird characters enjoyed their 15 minutes of fame during last week's flurry of TV programmes about Princess Diana," Wheen began, "but none was weirder than Jeffrey Steinberg, who appeared on Wednesday night's `studio debate' and again on Channel 4's Dispatches the next evening. There was, he admitted, `no smoking-gun proof' that Prince Philip ordered British intelligence to assassinate the Princess; nevertheless, `I can't rule it out in all honesty.' " Wheen complained, "So who is he? For some reason, viewers were not informed that the grand-sounding Executive Intelligence Review is in fact the weekly propaganda magazine of Lyndon H. LaRouche." Wheen almost got it right, when he noted, "Executive Intelligence Review has supported Al Fayed in his vendetta against Tiny Rowland and Lonrho; and when Michael Howard refused Al Fayed's application for British citizenship, LaRouche published a defamatory article about the family connection between Howard and Harold Landy, the former chairman of a Lonrho subsidiary." Wheen then digressed into the ID-format slander that was perfected by the mid-1980s dirty tricks slander salon, run by Wall Street Anglophile spook banker John Train, as part of the "Get LaRouche" task force of the U.S. Justice Department and private agencies that framed up and railroaded LaRouche to prison. Wheen recited the litany of smears: LaRouche says "the Queen runs an international cocaine smuggling cartel," that "Henry Kissinger is a communist agent," and, interestingly, that "the Italian banker Roberto Calvi was murdered by the Duke of Kent." (Calvi was himself a member of the extended royal family.)
     
    International terrorism

    Wheen then touched on another sore spot of the House of Windsor and Club of the Isles: the British hand in sponsoring and harboring international terrorism. He tried to twist EIR's exposé of London's role in safe-housing dozens of major terrorist organizations, a fact the U.S. State Department and the CIA have acknowledged in written documents. "In recent years," Wheen wrote, "LaRouche and Steinberg have been pursuing another `unique' theory--that `international terrorism' is masterminded by none other than Lord [William] Rees-Mogg and the Daily Telegraph reporter Ambrose Evans-Pritchard.... LaRouche claims [that] Rees-Mogg and Evans-Pritchard are part of a `powerful London-centerd apparatus that declared war on the United States immediately after the inauguration of President Clinton.' Whitewater, Troopergate, Paula Jones, Monica Lewinsky--all these scandals can be traced back to our double-barreled desperadoes.... But Rees-Mogg and Evans-Pritchard are merely servants of the `powerful London-centered apparatus.' The Mr. Big whose orders they obey is Prince Philip.... The intention, according to LaRouche, is to discredit, and destabilise the U.S. until it is forced to become a British colony once again, thus taking the House of Windsor another giant stride on its road to world domination." Wheen continued, "Only one person in Britain was powerful enough to thwart the conspiracy--Princess Diana, who had `declared war' on the royal family in her Panorama interview. And so she had to be killed." Wheen ended on a curious, slightly ominous, note: "This alliance between Al Fayed and Lyndon LaRouche seems risky, to say the least. Why should a prominent public figure aid and abet such an unscrupulous fantasy-merchant? If LaRouche doesn't wish to sully his reputation, he must disown Al Fayed forthwith," Wheen wrote. A half-dozen other slanders followed the Guardian article, in the Scotsman, on BBC-4 Radio, and even in the Danish press. One factor that clearly got the royals' blood boiling was that, according to the major British TV rating service, 12.5 million Britons watched the ITV documentary, and most of them also watched the studio debate that followed the evening news. On June 4, German national television aired the entire ITV broadcast, and major German dailies published lengthy excerpts from the transcript. In contrast, fewer than 3 million British viewers watched the Channel 4 smear the following evening. And, a Mirror newspaper poll, published on June 7, suggested that an overwhelming majority of Britons are convinced that there was more to the death of Diana than a traffic accident.

    The Strategic Battle

    As EIR has said from day one, the death of Princess Diana is the scandal that could hasten the fall of the House of Windsor. But, the future of the Club of the Isles oligarchy hangs in the balance today in a number of ways. The probe in Paris of Diana's death, if it turns up compelling evidence of a murder, or even of aggravated manslaughter caused by a paparazzi mob notorious for its links to British intelligence and the Crown apparatus, would certainly bring down both the Windsors and the current Socialist government in France, which also is deeply implicated in the crash and the cover-up. On other fronts, the British establishment is torn over how to deal with the onrush of the financial collapse. Prince Philip and his circle have no compunctions about throwing the world into decades of chaos and genocide, in order to retain oligarchical control. But other, less insane forces within the City of London financial elite are apparently asking, "What do we get out of such chaos and destruction?" and may be seeking a new political alliance, perhaps with the United States, and sane forces on the continent who are opposed to the suicidal Maastricht Treaty. Other issues that are causing divisions among the British elites include Britain's stance on the European Monetary Union, and the euro single curency. Furthermore, factions on the continent that share Prince Philip's impulse to play "chaos warfare," may be pressing for a new assault on the Asian currencies, including the Japanese yen, through the major continental banks and their offshore hedge funds, even though such a move at this moment would almost certainly trigger a global financial explosion with unpredictable consequences. Within the extended European oligarchy, which has, for decades, been under the boot of Prince Philip's Club of the Isles, there is intensive in-fighting and factional warfare, adding further to the crisis atmosphere spreading across Eurasia. The common point of agreement among the "chaos" factions within the British and continental oligarchies, is that the power of the United States, as the pillar of the nation-state system, must be destroyed in the immediate period ahead, lest LaRouche's ideas for a nation-state-centered New Bretton Woods solution to the present global mess, be adopted, along with LaRouche's vision for a Eurasian Land-Bridge plan of global economic reconstructed.

    New holes in cover-up of
    Diana murder plot

    Shortly after midnight, on Aug. 30-31, 1997, David Laurent, an off-duty senior French police official, was driving alone in his car on the right bank of the Seine River, heading toward the Place de l'Alma tunnel where, moments later, Diana Princess of Wales, her companion Dodi Fayed, and driver Henri Paul would die in a car crash. As he drove, Laurent was passed by a speeding white Fiat Uno, according to accounts he provided nine months ago to French Criminal Brigade police probing the Diana crash. As he approached the tunnel, Laurent noticed that the Fiat Uno that had sped by him, was now crawling along in the right traffic lane, almost at a standstill, just before the tunnel entrance. Although the behavior of the Fiat driver was a bit bizarre, Laurent drove on. It was, after all, Saturday night on the final weekend of the summer, and there were a lot of strange goings-on on the streets of Paris. Less than a moment later, however, Laurent heard a loud explosion from inside the tunnel, as he was driving a short distance ahead. It was not until the next morning that Laurent realized that the explosion he had heard from inside the tunnel was the crash that claimed the lives of Diana and her companions. And it was not until several weeks later that police forensic tests confirmed that the crash had been caused by a collision between the Mercedes 280-S carrying Diana, Fayed, Paul, and bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones, the sole survivor of the crash, and a Fiat Uno. Within hours of the crash, police at the scene had gathered up evidence--a side mirror and fragments of a tail light--suggesting that a two-car collision had occurred. A police sketch, drawn at the crash site, labeled a section of the tunnel the "collision zone." Several witnesses, interviewed during the first week after the crash, had described a small hatchback car, cutting in front of the Mercedes at the tunnel entrance, jamming its breaks inside the tunnel, fleeing the crash scene, and so on. But, until Laurent's critical piece of the story became public in early June, the role of the Fiat had remained ambiguous--despite the fact that the car and its driver have disappeared. Was the missing Fiat tragically in the wrong place at the wrong time, or was it critical to the most spectacular vehicular homicide in history? Laurent's description of the Fiat, speeding to a spot near the tunnel entrance, less than a minute ahead of Diana's car, which was under chase from several other cars and motorcycles, strongly suggests the latter possibility. For reasons yet unexplained, Laurent's crucial eyewitness account was withheld from the chief investigating magistrate, Hervé Stephan, for months. .

    Tampering with evidence

    This is not the first time that the French police in charge of the investigation have tampered with evidence. Within hours of the crash, French police had told reporters that the Mercedes carrying Diana had been travelling at speeds of more than 120 miles per hour. How did they know? They told reporters that the speedometer of the mangled Mercedes had been frozen at more than 120 mph. EIR investigators determined that the French "leak" had to be a lie. Daimler Benz safety experts had told EIR reporters that, in any crash, the speedometer immediately goes back to zero. Two weeks later, the French police "corrected" the error; but this time, the media scarcely reported the correction. Similarly, French police had lied to reporters that Diana had been pinned in the rear compartment of the Mercedes, and saying that this was why it took so long to get her into an ambulance and to a hospital. Photographic evidence and eyewitness accounts later proved that it, too, was a premeditated lie by the French police. In the case of the Laurent testimony, sources tell EIR that the police have claimed that they have withheld certain vital evidence from Magistrate Stephan, to avoid the information falling into the hands of the attorneys for the paparazzi. The police allegedly claimed that their investigation "would be jeopardized" if the paparazzi were to learn crucial details. The Laurent revelation, which was leaked to the London Daily Mirror on June 4 by a well-placed French police source, was not the only new piece of evidence to emerge in early June. On June 3, the British independent television network ITV aired a one-hour investigative report, "Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash," that seriously discredits French police claims that driver Henri Paul was drunk at the time of the crash.

    Carbon monoxide found in Paul's blood

    The assertion that Paul was drunk and high on two prescription drugs is pivotal to the ongoing effort, by the French government and the British establishment, to cast the crash as nothing more than a case of reckless, drunk driving. The claim that Paul had blood alcohol levels three times the legal limit at the time of the crash, was based solely on tests conducted by French coroners within hours of the crash. Independent forensic experts, including Dr. Peter Vanesis of the University of Glasgow, who reviewed the autopsy report, had harsh criticisms of the post mortem on numerous technical grounds. The ITV report revealed that the forensic tests also showed a near-lethal level of carbon monoxide as well. EIR has independently learned that it was a separate toxicological test on Paul's blood sample, that revealed a carbon monoxide level of more than 30% at the time of the crash. Yet, Dodi Fayed had no carbon monoxide in his blood. Is it possible that Paul could have had high levels of alcohol, traces of two prescription drugs, and toxic levels of carbon monoxide in his blood at the moment of the crash, and yet Fayed had no carbon monoxide present? Not if the carbon monoxide was inside the passenger cabin of the Mercedes. Furthermore, if Paul had been somehow poisoned with carbon monoxide sometime prior to getting behind the wheel of the Mercedes, experts interviewed by ITV say he would have shown obvious signs, such as dizziness, loss of balance, loss of depth perception, and an unbearable, throbbing pain in his temple. Security camera video footage of Paul, taken in the lobby of the Ritz Hotel between 9 p.m. and midnight, and aired in the ITV documentary, clearly showed that Paul had none of the tell-tale signs of being drunk or suffering from the effects of carbon monoxide. In a live television interview, aired one hour after the ITV broadcast, the documentary's host, Nicholas Owen, stated that he believed that the blood sample used in the post mortem was probably not taken from Paul. There were a dozen other corpses in the Paris city morgue at the time that Paul was brought in. This startling conclusion by Owen, adds further weight to EIR's charge that the French police--as distinct from chief investigating Magistrate Stephan--have been running a vicious cover-up of the events surrounding the crash. The ITV documentary also cited several eyewitness accounts that a powerful burst of light inside the tunnel, seconds before the crash, may have blinded Paul. Owen showed a commercially produced anti-personnel laser, that he purchased in a Paris shop for $300, to buttress the possibility that such a device was used in the vehicular attack. EIR Counterintelligence Director Jeffrey Steinberg appeared along with Owen and a half-dozen other investigators and expert analysts on the nationally televised interview show. Details of that broadcast and the vortex of media controversy, sparked by the ITV show and a second documentary, aired on June 4 on Channel Four TV in Britain, will appear in a forthcoming EIR

    (see also, the

    In a move that promises to raise even more questions about what happened in the Paris tunnel on Aug. 31, 1997, Magistrate Stephan convened an extraordinary group interrogation, or "confrontation," on June 5, at the Justice Ministry in Paris. Mohamed Al Fayed, Dodi's father and a civil party to the case, was invited to participate, as were a dozen eyewitnesses to the crash. The nine paparazzi who stand to be prosecuted for manslaughter and interference in the rescue effort, were also interrogated by Stephan. Details of what took place are not yet available.

    PRESS RELEASE

    EIR Reveals How Diana Murder Cover-up Has Turned Deadly
    June 30, 2000 (EIRNS)--The July 7, 2000 issue of Executive Intelligence Review features a detailed report on the mysterious death of French paparazzo James Andanson, one of the pivotal figures in the Aug. 31, 1997 fatal car crash in Paris, that claimed the lives of Princess Diana, Dodi Fayed, and Henri Paul. Andanson's body was found in a desolate forest in the south of France, burned beyond recognition, on May 5, 2000.
    June 30, 2000 (EIRNS)--The July 7, 2000 issue of Executive
    Intelligence Review
    features a detailed report on the mysterious death of French paparazzo James Andanson, one of the pivotal figures in the Aug. 31, 1997 fatal car crash in Paris, that claimed the lives of Princess Diana, Dodi Fayed, and Henri Paul. Andanson's body was found in a desolate forest in the south of France, burned beyond recognition, on May 5, 2000.
    A week after his bizarre death, which French authorities have attempted to label a "suicide," three armed, masked men broke into the Paris offices of the Sipa Agency, the photography agency where Andanson was working at the time of his death, and stole computer disks, laptops, and cameras. The three men were believed to be agents of the French secret service, hunting for possibly incriminating photographs of the crash site that Andanson may have been hiding.
    The EIR story details the fact that Andanson, who owned a white Fiat Uno at the time of the 1997 crash, was a prime suspect in the Diana and Dodi wrongful deaths, yet French investigators accepted his alibi that he was not in Paris at the time of the crash. Tests of the paint and bumper scratches on his Fiat matched those on the side of the Mercedes carrying Diana and Dodi, according to forensic reports contained in the files of chief investigating magistrate, Herve Stephan. EIR also uncovered other break-ins and surpression of crucial evidence by both British and French intelligence services.
    Nearly three years after the fatal crash, the true circumstances are still being covered up, and the EIR story breaks new ground in exposing that cover-up. This story is "must" reading for anyone who has been attempting to get to the bottom of the Diana-Dodi deaths. As one specialist told EIR, "The death of Andanson may very well signal a new, deadly turn in the cover-up of the death of Princess Diana. It is reminiscent of the pile of corpses that littered the landscape following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, when scores of individuals with knowledge about the President's death, died under mysterious circumstances.

    Wills And Kate To Tie The Knot - Claim

    A group of MPs has been told that Kate Middleton and Prince William are certain to marry. The claim was made by a veteran tabloid photographer, who said it was based on conversations with the prince.Sun snapper Arthur Edwards was talking to MPs about the self-regulation of the press. He said he felt sorry for Miss Middleton when he saw footage of the way she was treated by packs of paparazzi photographers."When I saw the pack break and they all surrounded her I felt awful about
    that and it does remind me of what happened to Princess Diana and I hope we don't make that same mistake again," he said. "I think we should pull back a bit and start to look at this girl's life."She's a private citizen, she needs a bit of space, she's in love with Prince William - I'm sure of that and I'm sure one day they'll get married and I've talked to William about this."He added: "I have talked to him about that and he's made it clear... he wants to get married."Mr Edwards said the royals had been "open season" for The Sun in the 1980s but his job was very different now."When celebrities appear in newspapers I just think a lot of it is brought on themselves - they call the papers, get in there and, by and large, they enjoy it," he said."It helps them sell their music and their films."


    Al Qaeda Threat to Kill Harry In Iraq.


    Terrorists have vowed to kidnap or kill Prince Harry when he fights in Iraq, it is reported.
    The 22-year-old is due to be sent out in May with colleagues from the Blues and Royals regiment. Threats have been posted on extremist websites since his deployment was revealed, The Sun says. One message said: "Prince Harry will be sent to Iraq to be killed by Muslims." Another added: "May Allah give him what he deserves - like his fellow crusaders." Army officials fear the Prince will be paraded on television if he is kidnapped.
    A Blues and Royals source told the paper: "Officially Harry is being treated just like any other soldier but in reality everyone knows how desperate the insurgents out there will be to get their hands on him."
     Internet terror expert Neil Doyle was quoted as saying: "Harry would be the ultimate prize for one of these insurgent groups. "He would be worth his weight in gold in propaganda terms if killed or captured." From the end of May, the prince will be patrolling in Scimitar armoured reconnaissance vehicles in Maysan. Harry will this week pose as a hooded hostage in a special training exercise, the paper says.
    His men will use tear gas and stun grenades to free him. More than 100 UK soldiers have been killed since the 2003 invasion.




    British judge seen "no evidence" Diana was murdered 

     LONDON (Reuters) - The judge investigating the death of Princess Diana said on Monday she had not seen "a shred of evidence" to back claims that she had been murdered. Coronor Elizabeth Butler-Sloss was responding to a request from lawyers representing Mohamed al Fayed, whose son Dodi died alongside Diana in a Paris car crash 10 years ago, to delay a long awaited inquest into the their deaths.

    New holes in cover-up of
    Diana murder plot


    Shortly after midnight, on Aug. 30-31, 1997, David Laurent, an off-duty senior French police official, was driving alone in his car on the right bank of the Seine River, heading toward the Place de l'Alma tunnel where, moments later, Diana Princess of Wales, her companion Dodi Fayed, and driver Henri Paul would die in a car crash. As he drove, Laurent was passed by a speeding white Fiat Uno, according to accounts he provided nine months ago to French Criminal Brigade police probing the Diana crash. As he approached the tunnel, Laurent noticed that the Fiat Uno that had sped by him, was now crawling along in the right traffic lane, almost at a standstill, just before the tunnel entrance.
    Although the behavior of the Fiat driver was a bit bizarre, Laurent drove on. It was, after all, Saturday night on the final weekend of the summer, and there were a lot of strange goings-on on the streets of Paris. Less than a moment later, however, Laurent heard a loud explosion from inside the tunnel, as he was driving a short distance ahead.
    It was not until the next morning that Laurent realized that the explosion he had heard from inside the tunnel was the crash that claimed the lives of Diana and her companions. And it was not until several weeks later that police forensic tests confirmed that the crash had been caused by a collision between the Mercedes 280-S carrying Diana, Fayed, Paul, and bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones, the sole survivor of the crash, and a Fiat Uno. Within hours of the crash, police at the scene had gathered up evidence--a side mirror and fragments of a tail light--suggesting that a two-car collision had occurred. A police sketch, drawn at the crash site, labeled a section of the tunnel the "collision zone." Several witnesses, interviewed during the first week after the crash, had described a small hatchback car, cutting in front of the Mercedes at the tunnel entrance, jamming its breaks inside the tunnel, fleeing the crash scene, and so on.
    But, until Laurent's critical piece of the story became public in early June, the role of the Fiat had remained ambiguous--despite the fact that the car and its driver have disappeared. Was the missing Fiat tragically in the wrong place at the wrong time, or was it critical to the most spectacular vehicular homicide in history?
    Laurent's description of the Fiat, speeding to a spot near the tunnel entrance, less than a minute ahead of Diana's car, which was under chase from several other cars and motorcycles, strongly suggests the latter possibility.
    For reasons yet unexplained, Laurent's crucial eyewitness account was withheld from the chief investigating magistrate, Hervé Stephan, for months.

    Tampering with evidence

    This is not the first time that the French police in charge of the investigation have tampered with evidence. Within hours of the crash, French police had told reporters that the Mercedes carrying Diana had been travelling at speeds of more than 120 miles per hour. How did they know? They told reporters that the speedometer of the mangled Mercedes had been frozen at more than 120 mph. EIR investigators determined that the French "leak" had to be a lie. Daimler Benz safety experts had told EIR reporters that, in any crash, the speedometer immediately goes back to zero. Two weeks later, the French police "corrected" the error; but this time, the media scarcely reported the correction. Similarly, French police had lied to reporters that Diana had been pinned in the rear compartment of the Mercedes, and saying that this was why it took so long to get her into an ambulance and to a hospital. Photographic evidence and eyewitness accounts later proved that it, too, was a premeditated lie by the French police.
    In the case of the Laurent testimony, sources tell EIR that the police have claimed that they have withheld certain vital evidence from Magistrate Stephan, to avoid the information falling into the hands of the attorneys for the paparazzi. The police allegedly claimed that their investigation "would be jeopardized" if the paparazzi were to learn crucial details.
    The Laurent revelation, which was leaked to the London Daily Mirror on June 4 by a well-placed French police source, was not the only new piece of evidence to emerge in early June. On June 3, the British independent television network ITV aired a one-hour investigative report, "Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash," that seriously discredits French police claims that driver Henri Paul was drunk at the time of the crash.

    Carbon monoxide found in Paul's blood

    The assertion that Paul was drunk and high on two prescription drugs is pivotal to the ongoing effort, by the French government and the British establishment, to cast the crash as nothing more than a case of reckless, drunk driving. The claim that Paul had blood alcohol levels three times the legal limit at the time of the crash, was based solely on tests conducted by French coroners within hours of the crash. Independent forensic experts, including Dr. Peter Vanesis of the University of Glasgow, who reviewed the autopsy report, had harsh criticisms of the post mortem on numerous technical grounds.
    The ITV report revealed that the forensic tests also showed a near-lethal level of carbon monoxide as well. EIR has independently learned that it was a separate toxicological test on Paul's blood sample, that revealed a carbon monoxide level of more than 30% at the time of the crash.
    Yet, Dodi Fayed had no carbon monoxide in his blood. Is it possible that Paul could have had high levels of alcohol, traces of two prescription drugs, and toxic levels of carbon monoxide in his blood at the moment of the crash, and yet Fayed had no carbon monoxide present? Not if the carbon monoxide was inside the passenger cabin of the Mercedes.
    Furthermore, if Paul had been somehow poisoned with carbon monoxide sometime prior to getting behind the wheel of the Mercedes, experts interviewed by ITV say he would have shown obvious signs, such as dizziness, loss of balance, loss of depth perception, and an unbearable, throbbing pain in his temple. Security camera video footage of Paul, taken in the lobby of the Ritz Hotel between 9 p.m. and midnight, and aired in the ITV documentary, clearly showed that Paul had none of the tell-tale signs of being drunk or suffering from the effects of carbon monoxide.
    In a live television interview, aired one hour after the ITV broadcast, the documentary's host, Nicholas Owen, stated that he believed that the blood sample used in the post mortem was probably not taken from Paul. There were a dozen other corpses in the Paris city morgue at the time that Paul was brought in. This startling conclusion by Owen, adds further weight to EIR's charge that the French police--as distinct from chief investigating Magistrate Stephan--have been running a vicious cover-up of the events surrounding the crash.
    The ITV documentary also cited several eyewitness accounts that a powerful burst of light inside the tunnel, seconds before the crash, may have blinded Paul. Owen showed a commercially produced anti-personnel laser, that he purchased in a Paris shop for $300, to buttress the possibility that such a device was used in the vehicular attack.
    EIR Counterintelligence Director Jeffrey Steinberg appeared along with Owen and a half-dozen other investigators and expert analysts on the nationally televised interview show. Details of that broadcast and the vortex of media controversy, sparked by the ITV show and a second documentary, aired on June 4 on Channel Four TV in Britain, will appear in a forthcoming EIR (see also, the Editorial in this issue).
    In a move that promises to raise even more questions about what happened in the Paris tunnel on Aug. 31, 1997, Magistrate Stephan convened an extraordinary group interrogation, or "confrontation," on June 5, at the Justice Ministry in Paris. Mohamed Al Fayed, Dodi's father and a civil party to the case, was invited to participate, as were a dozen eyewitnesses to the crash. The nine paparazzi who stand to be prosecuted for manslaughter and interference in the rescue effort, were also interrogated by Stephan. Details of what took place are not yet available.

"He would be worth his weight in gold in propaganda terms if killed or captured." From the end of May, the prince will be patrolling in Scimitar armoured reconnaissance vehicles in Maysan. Harry will this week pose as a hooded hostage in a special training exercise, the paper says.
    His men will use tear gas and stun grenades to free him. More than 100 UK soldiers have been killed since the 2003 invasion.


    British judge seen "no evidence" Diana was murdered 

    Inquest Into Diana's Death Postponed

    The inquest into the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, has been postponed until October 1. The coroner, Baroness Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, has granted the extra time in order to allow more evidence to be gathered. It is understood she agreed to the delay with some reluctance. In her opening statement at the pre-inquest hearing, she said: "I would be very sad if I was obliged to delay the start of the main proceedings for another six months. I feel that would be very, very hard on the families." However, the move was in line with a suggestion from Mohamed Al Fayed's lawyer, Michael Mansfield, who said there was a "massive amount of work" to be done. Sky News royal correspondent Katharine Witty said that although nearly 10 years had passed since the Paris car crash that claimed the lives of Diana, Dodi Fayed and their driver, Henri Paul, more time was needed to gather certain pieces of evidence. Among them is a computer-generated recreation of the route taken by their car created by the Metropolitan Police using the very latest technology. However, she said Princes William and Harry may be disappointed with the ruling. A letter read out on their behalf at the start of the proceedings said they wanted them to "not only be open, fair and transparent but... (to) move swiftly to a conclusion." "I don't think anyone will be happy at the delay," Witty said. "It means the 10th anniversary of their deaths will pass without an inquest having taken place." She added that more details would be made public at the next hearing on March 21.

    'My investigation should end all the conspiracy theories about Diana's death'

    Sir John the end of the matter


    By Rajeev Syal
    Last Updated: 1:14am BST 01/08/2004
    Sir John Stevens, Britain's most senior policeman, has urged Mohamed Fayed to accept
    the findings of his inquiry into the death of Diana, Princess of Wales.
    In a wide-ranging interview with The Telegraph shortly before he steps down as Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Sir John said that he was determined that his exhaustive inquiry should be the final word on the conspiracy theories that have raged around the circumstances of the princess's fatal car accident seven years ago. Mr Fayed, the Egyptian businessman whose son Dodi died alongside the princess, has repeatedly insisted that the couple were murdered in a plot by "the British establishment". Paul Burrell, Diana's former butler, has fuelled the conspiracy theories by releasing a letter purportedly written by the princess shortly before her death in which she said that she feared for her life. The Princess of Wales, 36, and Dodi Fayed, 42, were killed on August 31, 1997 when their Mercedes crashed in a Paris underpass. Their driver, Henri Paul, also died. Sir John said that his inquiry, Operation Paget, would examine every theory thoroughly and insisted that all parties, including Mr Fayed, should accept his conclusions.
    "We will do everything in our power to ensure that once and for all, the whole aspect of this particular episode has been investigated as thoroughly as necessary. "I shall be giving evidence to the coroner's court as will some of the officers who are working with me. Then I think people will then have to say, one way or the other, that that's the end of the matter," he said. Sir John, who launched the inquiry in April and has a team of 10 full-time detectives, said that he would personally oversee interviews with officers from MI6, the intelligence service, and MI5, the security service. Mr Fayed, who has met Sir John, has accused members of the security services of playing a part in the fatal crash. "The allegations regarding MI5 and MI6 I will be dealing with myself," Sir John said. The inquiry may go on longer than expected, said Sir John, because of Mr Fayed's continued attempts to question the findings of the French investigation into the princess's death. This concluded that the accident resulted from a powerful car being driven by an intoxicated driver and rejected other theories. "The French appeal court has found in certain aspects in Mr Fayed's favour and has asked the French authorities and the examining magistrate to look at some other aspects of the inquiry. So we will be very much dictated by where the French authorities are in terms of their inquiry," he said. Sir John, 61, spoke to The Telegraph last week at the launch of Soul in the City, a Christian initiative to encourage 15,000 youngsters to clean up Britain's inner-cities. In a back room of Uxbridge police station, Middlesex, the commissioner said that he had a deep interest in Christianity. At times he sought spiritual guidance from clergymen and God, he said. "I do pray. "I find that I have prayed all through my life, usually in situations when I have been up against it. I have found that a chatter through issues sometimes with the local priest would see me through rather than going to see a psychologist or psychiatrist," he said. Sir John's mood darkened as he discussed the behaviour of some on Britain's streets, and a 160 per cent rise in assaults on policemen in London over the past year. "When I go out with officers, it is just extraordinary how youngsters are completely drunk and think they can abuse, assault and spit at police officers and get away with it. "They are not going to get away with it. They are going to get arrested and be put in front of the courts," he said. He agreed with the prime minister's suggestion that attitudes fostered during the 1960s were partly to blame for a breakdown in values such as respect for the law. "I began in 1962 as a policeman. I think there is something about the Sixties having some kind of effect on the permissive side of things," he said. Respect for police had been whittled away by a series of scandals dating back to the same period. "I was there at the planting of the bricks on the Greek visit [when a detective was caught with stones in his pockets that he planned to plant on demonstrators against the King of Greece] . . . some of those cases together with a more easy-going attitude towards the taking of drugs had some effect," he said. Sir John retires in January after five years in charge of Britain's largest police force. Friends have hinted that he has clashed with David Blunkett, the Home Secretary, but the commissioner sidestepped such questions. "David Blunkett is a particularly robust individual, and what you see is what you get. I think most people would say that in relation to me. I would argue my corner very strongly if necessary, he respects that," he said. Sir John's one regret as he nears the end of a distinguished career has been failing to find and convict the killers of Damilola Taylor, the young boy stabbed to death in Peckham, south London, four years ago. The Commissioner still hopes that the boy's killers will be caught, even if it takes years to track them down. "Knowing Damilola's parents so well, and having such regard for them, we not only owe it to justice but we owe it to them to ensure that the people who committed that horrendous crime are bought to book," said Sir John.

    Gossip and intrigue: the Westminster rumour mill in overdrive

    Cabinet ministers take to the airwaves to dismiss speculation that they persuaded the prime minister not to resign

    Michael White, political editor
    Monday July 12, 2004
    The Guardian
    The Labour telephone network was thick with conspiratorial mutterings and indignant denials after BBC radio and television had spent much of the weekend giving prominence to reports that a clutch of Tony Blair's cabinet colleagues had to talk him out of resigning last month. Several of the ministers named, including John Reid, Charles Clarke and Tessa Jowell, were quickly on the airwaves, not actually denying that they urged Mr Blair to carry on, but insisting they had done so separately and without prior co-ordination during exchanges lasting as little as 30 seconds.

    Diana: A never-ending story

    Books about the life and death of Princess Diana keep appearing.
  • Is there anything we can learn from them?
  •     For someone whose world view was formed by a youthful diet of popular romance, it should not have been so surprising that the late Diana, Princess of Wales, lived her life as a romance heroine. Not surprising too that she was filled with rage that there was no happy ending as promised by Barbara Cartland and her ilk. But somewhere along the line she moved from shy virgin bride to empowered Scarlett O'Hara. Her death was more the stuff of thrillers. The public hysteria surrounding her end, the blanket television coverage and cancellation of sporting fixtures and a political campaign in Britain was, for those who maintained their cynicism, nothing short of bizarre and often embarrassing. The books about Diana are best read as a sort of dialogue with each other. Were the material in the key accounts of insiders better known, some of the latest claims of conspiracies would be robbed of much of their power. The revelation of a letter, predicting her own end in an arranged car accident 10 months before her death in the account written by Diana's butler/confidant of 10 years, Paul Burrell, A Royal Duty, should perhaps be seen in the context of a more generalised paranoia.

         Both her detective, Inspector Ken Wharfe in Closely Guarded Secret and private secretary, Patrick Jephson in Shadows of a Princess, report such unfounded suspicions. Jephson writes of how Diana was convinced one of her drivers was briefing the media when he was only telling them to nick off. Nicholas Davies, who knew both Diana and Charles, writes in Diana: Secrets and Lies that Diana told friends the royal family wanted her dead or out of the way as early as 1984. The recent broadcast in the US of the tapes she made for Andrew Morton's book, Diana: Her True Story, led to the rehashing of old scores, long after much of the material in it has been discredited, notably the suicide attempts. As Davies describes it, the supposed flinging of herself down a staircase really amounted to her slipping on a couple of stairs on a three-step staircase. All except the loyal Burrell, whose book is more a triumph of omission, testify to a woman who was a master of public relations, not averse to inventions such as her supposed rescue of a drowning tramp in a London park.

    HONOUR ROLL
    A Royal Duty by Paul Burrell, Penguin
    Diana: Death of a Goddess by David Cohen, Century
    Diana: Secrets and Lies by Nicholas Davies, AMI Books
    Shadows of a Princess by Patrick Jephson, HarperCollins
    Diana: Her True Story by Andrew Morton, Michael O'Mara Books
    Death of a Princess by Thomas Sancton and Scott MacLeod, Orion
    Closely Guarded Secret by Ken Wharfe, Michael O'Mara Books
    Wharfe writes that Diana called more than one person her "rock", not just Burrell, and Davies relates that Diana was sick of Burrell and he had been looking abroad for a new job. Whatever the truth of this, Burrell's worshipful book detonates the fiction of a caring Spencer family championing a sister. He castigates the hypocrisy of the Earl of Spencer's funeral speech, so applauded at the time. With such a family, Diana can be forgiven anything.
    The title of the latest book in the growing Diana opus, David Cohen's Diana: Death of a Goddess, suggests the idealised and cult-like status she had achieved. She made humanitarian work telegenic and if her motives were not always pure, she touched many who were less fortunate and publicised their plight.
    Cohen's book does not even use the word goddess. Despite the title, this is no exploration of Diana's appeal but the most sensational investigation to date of what happened in the tunnel below the Place d'Alma in Paris, where a grassy knoll commemorates the death of a young Belgian queen in a car accident in 1935.
    Was Diana's death the result of a conspiracy or just another of France's shocking 8000 road fatalities each year? Cohen suggests the truth lies at both ends of the spectrum and produces some credible-sounding evidence, based on the testimony of sources in the intelligence services, police contacts and a man who claimed to have been hired to kill Diana.
    From the start the French investigation of the accident was half-hearted at best. The accident scene had been cleared only two hours later and traffic allowed through, making a proper forensic collection of evidence impossible.
    There was a failure to interview key witnesses, at least one attempt to silence and discredit the first witness on the scene, incomplete records and inadequate preservation of blood and tissue samples from the man who became the fall-guy, Ritz driver Henri Paul, a limited attempt to find the white Fiat Uno, the back of which was scraped by the Ritz Mercedes carrying Diana and Dodi, and the partial embalming of Diana's body, contrary to French law, making a full autopsy impossible.
    The way the French inquiry was conducted and its deliberate limitation to dealing with the paparazzi following Diana has made it difficult to find the truth, says Cohen.
    Much that has been claimed by the Paris police, repeated in the media and accepted in an earlier book, Thomas Sancton and Scott MacLeod's Death of a Princess, is in doubt. The initial attempt to put all blame on the media pack following Diana that night gave way to the picture of a drunk, speeding driver, Henri Paul. The speed at which the car crashed was overstated by police and the evidence for Paul being drunk is questionable, according to Cohen. The high carbon-monoxide content in Paul's blood could not be credibly explained by the French inquiry.
    Cohen discovered, too, that contrary to French police statements there was a speed camera at the tunnel entrance and the tape showed Diana and Dodi laughing their heads off, not consistent with the widespread speculation that Dodi's panic had caused the driver to speed. Cohen dismisses Davies's theory that the Ritz car had been tampered with on the ground that it had only been used at the last moment.
    Cocaine, according to a police source, was found in Diana's bag. Most sinister of all is the Fiat Uno, seen to impede the Mercedes following it through the tunnel by slow zig-zagging.
    Mohamed Al-Fayed's own investigators did what the police could not and traced the Fiat Uno to one of the most aggressive celebrity snappers and one with links to two French prime ministers, James Andanson, who boasted to friends he filmed Diana's last moments although no one else saw him. He is believed to have worked for intelligence services, as did Henri Paul. Andanson died in suspicious circumstances in 2000.
    Cohen's informants lead him back to a cult called the Order of the Solar Temple and it is here that the links require a stretch of the imagination. Will we ever know whether Diana, named for the goddess of hunting, was herself hunted down and why? The long-delayed British inquest postponed until next year promises to contribute to the miasma.

    Vow from Diana's crashscene
    Apr 27 2004 The Western Mail
    BRITAIN'S most senior policeman vowed yesterday to "draw a line" once and for all under the mystery surrounding the death of Diana, Princess of Wales.Scotland Yard Commissioner Sir John Stevens, speaking at the spot where Diana died in a car crash in Paris, said he would be willing to interview the Prince of Wales as part of his inquiry into her death.He said he would be speaking to officers from MI5 and MI6 to investigate conspiracy theories alleging the involvement of the security services in the crash which killed her.Sir John, who was visiting the crash scene at the Pont de l'Alma tunnel for the first time, said the underpass was much smaller and narrower than he had thought and the gradient of the road into it was steeper.He will have 10 detectives working full-time on the inquiry, which may last into next year and is expected to cost up to £2m

    The inquiry began at the request of royal coroner Michael Burgess, who opened and adjourned an inquest in January - six-and-a-half years after Diana, her then boyfriend Dodi Fayed and driver Henri Paul died in their Mercedes limousine.Sir John travelled to Paris by Eurostar with Mr Burgess and Scotland Yard deputy assistant commissioner Alan Brown, who is his right hand man on the Diana inquiry.The road into the tunnel was closed off by French gendarmes and Sir John, Mr Burgess and Mr Brown were guided into the tunnel by Martine Monteil, director of the Brigade Criminale, who led the French investigation.Sir John spent half an hour in the tunnel, much of it examining the 13th pillar into which the car crashed.After emerging from the tunnel, Sir John said he would investigate every possibility.He said, "There are a lot of conspiracy theories relating to the deaths of the three people in this tunnel."It is my job to report to the coroner every single aspect being investigated in terms of conspiracy theories."This is a very intricate investigation.Every single aspect of conspiracy theories and the like will be looked at by my team."I will speak to people from MI6 and MI5, yes."Asked if he would be interviewing the Prince of Wales, Sir John said, "If there is the need to interview Prince Charles, I will interview Prince Charles."We have the best team of detectives we can from the Yard."We have got to try and do everything we can to try and draw a line one way or another under this inquiry. Hopefully, we can complete this by the end of December."

    Brits Re-Open Diana Probe Police Looking Into Possibility That Di's Death Was Not Accident



    (CBS) 
    British police are reopening their investigation into the death of Princess Diana, and they're looking into the possibility

     that it wasn't an accident, CBSNEWS Correspondent Elizabeth Palmer reports.

    Scotland Yard Commissioner Sir John Stevens will retrace Diana's movements the night of the crash that killed her as her car traveled at high speed through a tunnel in central Paris.

    “We will be looking at the scene of what has taken place. Obviously, statements, videos and pictures are being seen.
     But it's very important that I actually have a look at the scene,” says Stevens.

    “Today is all about going to the scene. We’ll be driving a car down there. We’ll be looking at the scene and also I’ll be meeting my French counterpart.”

    A thorough French investigation of the accident discounted conspiracy theories that suggested Diana was killed because she was pregnant by her Egyptian lover, Dodi Fayed. The French report instead blames the driver of the Mercedes,

    Henri Paul, for driving under the influence of both alcohol and drugs.

    Now, seven years later, a team of British detectives working for the royal coroner will conduct its own investigation –
     in a final attempt to end speculation about the death of Britain's most famous princess.

    The inquest report is expected by the end of this year.

    International Sex Scandal Roils Up London/Washington

    Surely the word-missiles were enroute. Just like shot at a convention of Black-Mailers.
    Jaded from a surplus of war-talk, supposedly high-toned correspondents were discharging the fluid of their pelvic questions.
    Print-fakers queried, "What, are we filling a Thursday newshole with this?" Meaning, while running a lot of Thursday food store ads, that required filling up the balance of the newspaper supposedly with "news", too often just an editor's worn-out closet rags.
    The unwritten, if unpublished, newsroom Manual of Style, if not Book of Protocol, forbids writing such matters. Plainly, dirt on heavyweights.
    On the other hand, long-brain-sterilized newswire types, just following central orders and solely interested in collecting their wages, did not smile or otherwise react.
    "Are we informed, from credible sources, where these pictures come from?" asked a she/he liar and whore of the press, sounding just like recently hired from an Establishment journalism school, named, for example, for big-bucks known criminals like the Annenbergs. (See the book "Annenberg" by Gaeton Fonzi.)
    An old-timer, veteran of numerous censorship wars, retorted, "Oh, you know, the network bosses' pals, at the French CIA, Israeli Intelligence, Red Chinese Secret Police, the Vatican Bank Chief, the usual well-placed 'official' sources we are supposed to rely on."
    The pictures and accompanying spy agency notes (not to be attributed to anyone in particular), are quite explicit. They show a trio of apparent homosexuals getting off.
    Ostensibly unhandcuffed, the newsies began poking their mental fingers, if not their actual pens, into once-forbidden portals and orifices.
    "Hey, do you see what we have here?" comes a rhetorical throwaway question, from a voice with no name. Plainly, it was a trio of untouchables, top-level male sex-mates, sucking and screwing each other. Prince Charles, Britiish Prime Minister Tony Blair, and White House occupant and resident George W. Bush.
    [To divert attention from the real situation, the British and others in the European press are running stories that Prince Charles had a minor functionary as a homosexual sex-mate, rather than the ones mentioned in this story.]Did the press-whores suddenly depart from what the then editor of the New York Times, in 1953 dared utter in addressing a meeting of the National Press Club?
    "The business of the journalist is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of Mammon and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread.
    "We are the tools and the vassals of rich men behind the scenes.
    "They pull the strings, and we dance."
    The list of questions to obviously pursue, sounded like a catalogue from a picnic of conspiracy theorists---like dopers cash money, of having somehow been too near actual cocaine.
    [1] What about the children supposedly fathered by these characters in the pictures and notes? Did someone else put their pistol into the holster? Are we now going to check the DNA of the offspring of someone's actually lesbian wife?
    A sarcastic correspondent mentioned that Juanita Broaddrick, apparently raped by Bill Clinton, mentioned that he said, "Honey, not to worry. I've been sterile since I had mumps as a teen-ager." Bill Clinton has his flag up most of the time, and like jailed other known rapists examined by doctors, suffers from priapism.
    After all, daughter Chelsea has lips like Webster Hubbell, once law-partner of Hillary. Web was once Chief Judge of the Arkansas Supreme Court, Mayor of Little Rock, and then top honcho in the Clinton Justice Department. Web finally became a convicted/jailed embezzler having ripped off his once law partners.To pave the way for a known homosexual to eventually occupy the British Throne, namely Prince Charles, the British Anglican Church, headed by Queen Elizabeth II, is installing church officials who are openly homosexual. Is this a mere coincidence?
    Prince Charles, The Ugly, looks different than his sons he supposedly fathered, Prince William and Prince Harry, good-looking like their mother, Princess Diana of Wales. Charles, being implicated apparently in the homosexual trio, may cause the dethroning of Queen Elizabeth II. According to Diana's secret notes left with a trusted friend, she knew she was targeted to be murdered. Apparently by Prince Phillip, husband of Queen Elizabeth. Phillip reportedly ordered British Counter-Intelligence, MI-6, to murder Diana. After all, she and her brother were/are the legitimate heirs to the British Throne, being from the House of Stuart. Fingering Prince Charles may cause the downfall of the fake-name House of Windsor, actually German royalty, not British, from the House of Hanover. The reason for the murder of Princess Diana and the threatening of her brother, who fled to Africa, becomes obvious.
    Also, see the earlier story showing the Bush Crime Family has a joint account with Queen Elizabeth II, in HER PRIVATE BANK, Coutts Bank London OF ONE HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS, arranged under the secret codes, as shown in the document, of Alan Greenspan, head of the Federal Reserve.
    [2] What about the observations of highly-skilled orthopedic doctors? Namely, that George W. Bush does not walk straight, apparently from too much rear-end activity as a homosexual. In respect to the homosexual trio, some matter-of-a-factly ask, "Well, which one was the 'woman' ?"
    And what about George W. Bush's skin lesions, to some indicating he contracted HIV from his other male sex-mate, the Mayor of a sizeable southern city?
    Checking the paternity of this story most likely requires checking the secretions in and on the underwear of Royal and Political bigshots, as well as, those behind the mask of spy agencies.
    Some among the "powers that be", the Establishment, the Aristocracy, the Ruling Class, whatever you call THEM, may be ready to divert negative attention from themselves as bloody war-mongers and profiteers of financial collapse, by throwing away their scapegoats and stooges, the unholy trio from London and Washington.
    Perhaps some in the Aristocracy, stuck in a time warp, are trying to take back Tomorrow.

    More coming. Stay tuned.

    LONDON (Reuters) - The judge investigating the death of Princess Diana said on Monday she had not seen "a shred of evidence" to back claims that she had been murdered.

    Princess Diana Murder Cover-Up Turns Deadly
    by Jeffrey Steinberg
    Nearly three years after the Paris car crash that claimed the lives of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed, the cover-up of that tragedy
    has taken a deadly turn, prompting some experts to recall the pileup of corpses that followed the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Over the course of four years, after President Kennedy was shot on Nov. 22, 1963, at least 37 eyewitnesses and other
    sources of evidence about the crime, including one member of the infamous Warren Commission, which oversaw the cover-up,
    died under mysterious circumstances.
    On May 5, 2000, police in the south of France found a badly burned body inside the wreckage of a car, deep in the woods near Nantes. The body was so charred that it took police nearly a month before DNA tests confirmed that the dead man was Jean-Paul "James" Andanson, a 54-year-old millionaire photographer, who was among the paparazzi stalking Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed during

    the week before their deaths.
    From the day of the fatal crash in the Place de l'Alma tunnel, that killed Diana, Dodi, and driver Henri Paul, and severely injured bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones, Andanson had been at the center of the controversy.
    Mohamed Al-Fayed, the father of Dodi Fayed, and the owner of Harrods Department Store in London and the Paris Ritz Hotel, has labelled the Aug. 31, 1997 crash a murder, ordered by the British royal family, and most likely executed through agents and assets of the British secret intelligence service MI6--with collusion from French officials, whose cooperation in the cover-up would have been essential.
    At least seven eyewitnesses to the crash said that they saw a white Fiat Uno and a motorcycle speed out of the tunnel, seconds after the crash. Forensic tests have confirmed that a white Fiat Uno collided with the Mercedes carrying Diana and Dodi, and that this collision was a significant factor in the crash. Several eyewitnesses told police that they saw a powerful flash of light just seconds before the Mercedes swerved out of control and crashed into the 13th pillar of the Alma tunnel. That bright light--either a camera flash or a far more powerful flash of a laser weapon--was probably fired by the passenger on the back of the speeding motorcycle. Both the motorcycle and the white Fiat fled the crash scene, and police claim they have been unable to locate either vehicle, or identify the drivers or the passengers.

    Andanson's White Fiat

    Andanson had been in and around Sardinia during the last week of August 1997, as Diana and Dodi vacationed in the Mediterranean. He joined several dozen other paparazzi, who were stalking the couple's every move. He was back in France on Aug. 30, the day that Diana and Dodi flew to Paris. And that is where the facts about Andanson's activities and whereabouts get very fuzzy.
    For reasons that he never revealed, sometime before dawn on Aug. 31, 1997, less than six hours after the crash in the Alma tunnel, Andanson boarded a flight at Orly Airport near Paris, bound for Corsica. Andanson claimed that he was not in Paris earlier in the evening, when the crash occurred, but he never produced any evidence, save a receipt for the purchase of gasoline elsewhere in France (which he could have doctored or obtained from another person), to prove he was not in the city.
    His son James and his daughter Kimberly told police that they thought their father was grape-harvesting in the Bordeaux region. Andanson's wife Elizabeth claimed that she had been at home with her husband all night, at their country home, Le Manoir de la Bergerie, in Cher, until he abruptly left for Orly, at 3:45 a.m., to catch the crack-of-dawn flight to Corsica.
    Pressed on her version of the story, Mrs. Anderson later admitted to reporters and police that her husband was constantly on the run, and she could have been mistaken about the night in question. She told The Express, a British newspaper, "It was always very difficult to recall James's precise movements because he was always coming and going. The family was very used to that and so never paid a great deal of attention to the times he came and went."
    What makes Andanson's precise itinerary the night of the fatal crash so vital is this: He owned and drove a white Fiat Uno. The car was repainted shortly after the Aug. 31, 1997 Alma tunnel crash, and was sold by Andanson in October 1997. And, although the official report of the French authorities investigating the crash concluded that Andanson's car was not involved in the crash, French forensic reports made available to The Express told a very different story.
    One report in the files of Judge Hervé Stephan, the chief investigating magistrate in the Diana-Dodi crash probe, described the tests on Andanson's Fiat: "The comparative analysis of the infrared spectra characterizing the vehicle's original paint, reference Bianco 210, and the trace on the side-view mirror of the Mercedes shows that their absorption bands are identical." In laymen's terms, the paint scratches from the Fiat found on the side-view mirror of the Mercedes were identical to the paint samples taken from the matching spot on Andanson's Fiat.
    The report continued: "The comparative analysis between the infrared spectra characterizing the black polymer taken from the vehicle's fender, and the trace taken from the door of the Mercedes, show that their absorption bands are identical."
    In short, despite the French investigators' endorsement of Andanson's alibi, the forensic tests strongly suggested that his car may have been the white Fiat Uno involved in the fatal crash.
    John Macnamara, the Harrods director of security, and a retired senior Scotland Yard supervisor of investigations, told reporters: "Mr. Andanson had for some time been a prime suspect who had relentlessly pursued Diana and Dodi prior to their arrival in Paris. We have always believed that Andanson was at the scene and that more investigation should have been done into his possible involvement."
    Macnamara added, "We believe that his death is no coincidence and that this is a line of inquiry which may help to discover the truth. Was Mr. Andanson killed because of what he knew? That is a question we want answered."

    The `Suicide' Soap Opera

    Needless to say, Andanson's death stirred up renewed interest in Diana's death at a most inopportune time for the British royals, and those in France who abetted the cover-up. Sometime in September, an appellate court in Paris will rule on Al-Fayed's motion to order Judge Stephan to reopen the crash probe, based on the fact that Stephan shut down his probe before certain vital avenues of inquiry were fully explored, and in contradiction to his own interim report, which cited several glaring paradoxes in the evidence that remained unresolved at the point that he abruptly closed down his investigation last year and blamed the crash on driver Henri Paul.
    For example, U.S. intelligence agencies, including the National Security Agency, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the Defense Intelligence Agency, have all acknowledged, in response to Freedom of Information Act queries, that they have thousands of pages of documents on Princess Diana. Those documents, for the most part, remain under lock and key. In addition to those documents and other relevant evidence, it has been recently exposed that a secret U.S.-U.K. joint surveillance program, code-named "Project Echelon," had apparently been involved in round-the-clock monitoring of Princess Diana's telephone conversations, while she was at home in England and travelling around the globe.
    Until the contents of these U.S. government files and electronic intercepts have been reviewed by French investigators, Al-Fayed's lawyers have argued, the probe cannot be considered complete. And the U.S. Justice Department continues to stonewall on indicting three Americans who were involved in an attempted $20 million extortion of Al-Fayed in April 1998, centered around purported "CIA documents" proving that British intelligence assassinated Diana and Dodi. While the "CIA documents" seized from one of the plotters have been confirmed to have been clever forgeries, questions remain about the accuracy of the content of the documents.
    In a flagrant effort to dampen interest in the Andanson factor, the June 11 Mail on Sunday, a pro-royalist tabloid, ran a story proclaiming "Wife's Affair Led to Paparazzi Man's Car Blaze Suicide." The Mail on Sunday dutifully peddled the French government's cover story: "The millionaire photographer who trailed Diana, Princess of Wales in St. Tropez just days before her death, committed suicide when he discovered his wife was cheating on him, French police have revealed. . . . The eccentric millionaire--who was hailed by colleagues as one of the godfathers of paparazzi photography, and who flew a Union Flag over his house to show his love of Britain--was facing a family crisis at the time of his death."
    Mail on Sunday reporter Ian Sparks quoted an unnamed colleague of Andanson's at the Sipa Agency in Paris, making the preposterously contradictory claim that Andanson "was desperate to save his marriage. We would never have guessed he would do something so terrible." He committed suicide to save his marriage! Right.
    A French police spokesman told Sparks, "He took his own life by dousing himself and the car with petrol and then setting light to it."
    Andanson's widow Elizabeth, and their son James have rejected the idea that Andanson's death was suicide. Sources close to the family told EIR that they have pressed French officials to conduct a murder investigation into Andanson's death 400-miles from his home. The sources dismiss the bogus "marital problems" story and additionally report that Andanson was in high spirits over his new job with the Sipa Agency.

    The Plot Thickens

    Just after midnight on June 16, just one week after Andanson's death was first made public, three masked men armed with handguns, broke into the Sipa office in Paris, shooting a security guard in the foot. The three assailants dismantled all of the security cameras in the office, and proceeded to enter several specific offices, clearly aware of exactly what they were looking for. They made off with several cameras, laptop computers, and computer hard drives.
    Sipa's office employs more than 200 people, and operates 24-hours a day. The three invaders spent three hours in the office, holding other employees hostage. According to one of the hostages, the men were never concerned about the French police arriving at the scene. This hostage was convinced that the three "burglars" were themselves working for some branch of the French Secret Service. Furthermore, the source confirmed that Andanson had worked for French and, undoubtedly, British security agencies.
    The owner of Sipa, Sipa Hioglou, has worked closely with French intelligence, and, not surprisingly, has been one of the primary sources of the "marital problems/suicide" cover story about Andanson's death, "confessing" to French police and reporters that Andanson had confided in him that he planned to take his own life. Hioglou, in the days following the bizarre break-in and hostage siege of his office, also told police that he suspected that the raid was done on behalf of a disgruntled celebrity who was angry that her picture had been taken by a Sipa paparazzo without her permission.
    In stark contrast, other Sipa employees have told the police that the idea that Andanson committed suicide was preposterous, and that they suspect that the break-in was related to his death.

    What Is Going On?

    The Sipa raid, the obvious work of French Secret Service assets, raises some very troubling questions. If Macnamara and Al-Fayed are right, and Andanson was at the crash site on Aug. 31, 1997, and his white Fiat was the car that collided with the Mercedes, what documentation exists of his presence at the tunnel? What photographs exist of the crash scene, and what do they reveal? Was some of this material seized from the Sipa offices in the recent break-in, to assure that it never sees the light of day?
    Evidence has recently come to light, that within hours of the crash, British and French secret service agencies carried out a series of similar break-ins at the homes and offices of several photo-agency personnel, in a desperate search for photos of the crash site that may have been transmitted in the hours immediately after the Alma tunnel collision, and before word of Princess Diana's death was made public.
    EIR has obtained copies of sworn statements from two London-based photographers, Darryn Paul Lyons and Lionel Cherruault, which reveal that British intelligence was hyperactive in the hours immediately after the Alma tunnel crash, desperately seeking any revealing photographs that might have been spirited out of Paris.
    Lyons identified himself as the "Chairman of `Big Pictures,' . . . an international photographic agency in London, New York, and Sydney, specializing in obtaining and selling unique and exclusive celebrity-based photographs." At 12:30 a.m. on Aug. 31, 1997, Lyons received a phone call from a Paris paparazzo, Lorent Sola, who said that he had a dozen photographs of the accident at the Alma tunnel. Sola offered to electronically transmit the photos to Lyons immediately, and Lyons rushed off to his office, receiving the high-resolution photographs at approximately 3 a.m. Lyons immediately began negotiating with several large news organizations in the United States and Britain to sell the pictures for $250,000.
    Lyons and Sola conferred after word of Diana's death was made public, and they decided to withdraw the offer of the pictures. Copies of the photos were placed in Lyons' office safe.
    Sometime between 11 p.m. on Aug. 31 and 12:30 a.m. on Sept. 1, the electricity at Lyons' office was mysteriously cut, although no other power outages in the office building or the neighborhood occurred. Lyons, convinced that either the office was being robbed, or bombed, called the police. In his sworn statement, Lyons declared that he believed that secret service agents had broken into his office and either searched the premises or planted surveillance and listening devices.
    Lionel Cherruault, a London-based photo journalist for Sipa Agency, in his sworn statement, reported that, at 1:45 a.m. on Aug. 31, 1997, he received a call at his home from a freelance photographer in Florida, informing him that he was expecting to soon be in possession of photographs of the tunnel crash. Cherruault told the Florida contact that he was interested. After word of Diana's death was announced, the deal fell through.
    But Cherruault, who was in contact with his boss at Sipa, stated that, at approximately 3:30 a.m. on Sept. 1, while he and his wife and daughter were asleep, his home was broken into, his wife's car was stolen, and his car was moved. Computer disks used for transmitting photographs, and other electronic equipment, were stolen, and the front door of their home was left wide open. Even though cash, credit cards, and jewelry were visible in the study where the burglars stole the computer equipment, none of those valuables were taken, making it clear that this was not an ordinary break-in. The next day, a police officer came to Cherruault's home and confirmed that the break-in was clearly the work of "Special Branch, MI5, MI6, call it what you like, this was no ordinary burglary." The officer said that the home had "been targetted." The man, whose name Cherruault was unable to recall, assured him "not to worry, your lives were not in danger," according to the sworn statement.
    The official police report of the Cherruault break-in, which has been reviewed by EIR, confirmed that "The computer equipment stolen contained a huge library of royal photographs and appears to have been the main target for the perpetrators."

    Another Thread of the Cover-Up

    One of the other still-unresolved issues in the Alma crash probe, three years after the fact, revolves around the medical evidence. Al-Fayed has been battling in court in Britain for the right to participate in the official inquest into the death of Princess Diana, arguing that since both Diana and Dodi died in the crash, therefore he should be entitled to officially participate in both inquests. The courts have preliminarily ruled that he has the right to contest the Royal Coroner's rejection of his participation in the Diana inquest, which will only occur after the French appellate process has been completed, sometime later this year.
    However, in April of this year, the attorneys representing Al-Fayed received a copy of a suppressed memorandum, prepared by Professors Dominique Lecomte and Andre Lienhart, two French forensic pathologists working for Judge Stephan, suggesting that British authorities, including the Royal Coroner, Dr. Burton, had interceded to conceal some aspects of the official British autopsy. The two French doctors were in London on June 23, 1998, where they met with British coroners Drs. Burton and Burgess, forensic pathologist Dr. Chapman, and Scotland Yard Superintendant Jeffrey Rees. They were given copies of the English autopsy report on Princess Diana, but, according to their contemporaneous notes on the meeting, were told that the document was provided for their "private and personal use," and that it should not be included in the formal file of Judge Stephan.
    Any material in that official investigative file was automatically made available to attorneys representing all the interested parties in the French probe, including Al-Fayed's attorneys.
    This two-and-a-half year suppression of the Lecomte-Lienhart memorandum has once again raised serious questions about the legitimacy of the "official" autopsy of the Princess of Wales, including questions that arose at the time of her death, as to whether she was pregnant.
    The mayhem surrounding the deaths of Diana and Dodi, and now Andanson, raises questions about the circumstances in Paris on that night in late August 1997--questions that the House of Windsor in general, and Prince Philip in particular, have long sought to suppress. The time may be fast approaching that the well-orchestrated three-year cover-up is about to blow apart, and at least part of the truth about the death of the "People's Princess" see the light of day.
    And that is something that the Windsors and the mandarins of MI6 may not be able to survive.

    New `Diana Wars' in Britain
    Put Focus on LaRouche

    by Jeffrey Steinberg
    On June 4, the London Daily Telegraph, the flagship publication of the British monarchy and the Club of the Isles' Hollinger Corp., published a crass slander against Lyndon LaRouche, headlined "U.S. Cult Is Source of Theories." The article charged that LaRouche, EIR, and the New Federalist newspaper were all behind a "Diana conspiracy industry," and that LaRouche, in league with London-based billionaire Mohamed Al Fayed, was "accusing the Queen of ordering the assassination of Diana, Princess of Wales."
    Apart from the fact that the article was pure fiction, there were two significant things about the story--which accompanied a much longer article that trashed a British Independent Television (ITV) documentary, entitled "Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash," which had aired the previous night, and which had been followed by a live televised debate on the Princess's death:
    First, the Daily Telegraph smear was authored by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, an avowed British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) stringer, who spent from late 1992 through the spring of 1997 in Washington, D.C. orchestrating a similar slander campaign against President Bill Clinton. Allowing Evans-Pritchard's by-line to appear on the "icebox" slander of LaRouche was a blunder of strategic significance, which underscored the truth behind LaRouche's charge that all of President Clinton's enemies, including in the upper echelons of the British oligarchy, are also enemies of LaRouche.
    The blunder also underscored the fact that there is a "battle royal" under way within the British ruling class, which goes far beyond the issue of the death of Princess Diana. The battle touches on matters of global geopolitics, and how the British oligarchy intends to survive the worst, systemic financial breakdown crisis in modern history.
    The "Torygraph" slander also marked a decisive break in the Club of the Isles' policy of keeping LaRouche's name out of print in Britain. It has been long-recognized by the City of London-centered financier oligarchical grouping headed by the Royal Consort, Prince Philip, that LaRouche and EIR have been a powerful factor in exposing their dirty machinations worldwide, and have also been an important contributing factor in an eruption of political warfare against the Windsors, even from among the British elites.
    The LaRouche role in the Windsors' troubles came to the surface in 1994, when EIR published "The Coming Fall of the House of Windsor," a Special Report exposing the role of Prince Philip and his World Wildlife Fund (WWF, now the World Wide Fund for Nature), in triggering the worst genocide in modern history in the Great Lakes region of Africa. Even as EIR's exposés of the Windsors circulated throughout the world diplomatic community and among factions of the British establishment, with rare exceptions, the name "LaRouche" was banned from the British press.[FIGURE 1]
    All that changed, beginning with the June 4 Evans-Pritchard diatribe. The article not only accused LaRouche and EIR of heading the "conspiracy industry," and of accusing "the Queen of being the world's foremost drug dealer." But also, it linked LaRouche to Mohamed Al Fayed, Harrods department store owner and the father of the late Dodi Fayed, in a campaign, Evans-Pritchard wrote, "aimed at discrediting Tiny Rowland, Mr. Al Fayed's longtime business rival, ... according to Francesca Pollard, a former operative for the Fayed security machine." As EIR revealed in its 1993 unauthorized biography of Rowland, Pollard, whose family was robbed of its fortune by Rowland, was threatened and then paid off by Rowland, to be a source of trash against Al Fayed. Following the Aug. 31, 1997 car crash in Paris that claimed the life of Princess Diana, Dodi Fayed, and their driver, Henri Paul, Rowland was deployed by the British royal family to lead a slander and harassment campaign aimed at silencing Mohamed Al Fayed, who has stated publicly that he is "99.9% certain" that Diana and Dodi were the victims of a murder plot.

    Battle of the Documentaries

    The trigger for the slanders against LaRouche was the airing of the ITV documentary on the evening of June 3, followed by a live TV debate, which featured this author. The ITV documentary provided dramatic new evidence supporting the case that Diana and Dodi were murdered (see "New Holes in Cover-Up of Diana Murder Plot," EIR, June 12, 1998), and highlighted several investigative leads that were first published in EIR, including the possibility that driver Paul was blinded by an anti-personnel laser.
    During the live TV round-table debate, this author discussed Princess Diana's decade-long war with the House of Windsor, including the impact of her November 1995 BBC Panorama interview, in which she charged that her estranged husband, Prince Charles, was unfit to be King; and, the reaction of the establishment to her actions, which amounted to a collective shriek, "Off with her head!" Rowland's personal involvement in the campaign to cover up the truth about the Paris crash, and to destroy Mohamed Al Fayed, was also aired, much to the chagrin of the producer and host of a Channel 4 "Dispatches" documentary on the Diana death that aired the following night. Channel 4 tried to dismiss as fantasy every piece of evidence refuting the "drunk driver" theory.[FIGURE 2]
    The Channel 4 "Dispatches" program included a slander of this author and EIR that was even more explicit on the question of Prince Philip. Although this author was interviewed on camera for more than two hours by Channel 4 host Martyn Gregory, less than one minute of that interview was shown on the hour-long "Dispatches" diatribe. And, that brief segment waxed hysterical about EIR's refusal to "rule out" the possibility that Prince Philip ordered the murder of Diana and Dodi. Indeed, British press accounts of the relationship between Prince Philip and Lady Diana, particularly during the brief period of her relationship with Dodi Fayed, revealed that the Royal Consort was in a constant blind rage over Diana's public disdain for the Windsors, and particularly her implicit challenge to their legitimacy on the British throne.
    Gregory was given several pages in the Sunday Telegraph on June 7, to continue denouncing LaRouche, EIR, and Al Fayed. In an article regurgitating the "Dispatches" disinformation, Gregory wrote: "The numerous hares Mohamed Fayed has set running in the colours of sundry conspiracy theories are typified by Geoffrey [sic] Steinberg, chief reporter of Executive Intelligence Review, a small-circulation American magazine that specializes in conspiracy theories. He was yet another guest on the side of the motley crew supporting ITV's Wednesday night programme.
    "This is the man who told Dispatches he `could not rule out the possibility' that Prince Philip was involved in the `murder of Diana.' We decided not to take Steinberg seriously at all."

    Defending `Mr. Big'

    Not so for MI5, another British intelligence agency. On June 10, Francis Wheen, a writer for MI5's favorite leak sheet, the political satire magazine Private Eye, penned another anti-LaRouche diatribe, in the London Guardian. Wheen, who had published smears against LaRouche in 1996, fixated on EIR's targetting of Prince Philip, whom Wheen affectionately referred to as "Mr. Big." "Many weird characters enjoyed their 15 minutes of fame during last week's flurry of TV programmes about Princess Diana," Wheen began, "but none was weirder than Jeffrey Steinberg, who appeared on Wednesday night's `studio debate' and again on Channel 4's Dispatches the next evening. There was, he admitted, `no smoking-gun proof' that Prince Philip ordered British intelligence to assassinate the Princess; nevertheless, `I can't rule it out in all honesty.' "
    Wheen complained, "So who is he? For some reason, viewers were not informed that the grand-sounding Executive Intelligence Review is in fact the weekly propaganda magazine of Lyndon H. LaRouche." Wheen almost got it right, when he noted, "Executive Intelligence Review has supported Al Fayed in his vendetta against Tiny Rowland and Lonrho; and when Michael Howard refused Al Fayed's application for British citizenship, LaRouche published a defamatory article about the family connection between Howard and Harold Landy, the former chairman of a Lonrho subsidiary." Wheen then digressed into the ID-format slander that was perfected by the mid-1980s dirty tricks slander salon, run by Wall Street Anglophile spook banker John Train, as part of the "Get LaRouche" task force of the U.S. Justice Department and private agencies that framed up and railroaded LaRouche to prison. Wheen recited the litany of smears: LaRouche says "the Queen runs an international cocaine smuggling cartel," that "Henry Kissinger is a communist agent," and, interestingly, that "the Italian banker Roberto Calvi was murdered by the Duke of Kent." (Calvi was himself a member of the extended royal family.)

    International terrorism

    Wheen then touched on another sore spot of the House of Windsor and Club of the Isles: the British hand in sponsoring and harboring international terrorism. He tried to twist EIR's exposé of London's role in safe-housing dozens of major terrorist organizations, a fact the U.S. State Department and the CIA have acknowledged in written documents. "In recent years," Wheen wrote, "LaRouche and Steinberg have been pursuing another `unique' theory--that `international terrorism' is masterminded by none other than Lord [William] Rees-Mogg and the Daily Telegraph reporter Ambrose Evans-Pritchard.... LaRouche claims [that] Rees-Mogg and Evans-Pritchard are part of a `powerful London-centerd apparatus that declared war on the United States immediately after the inauguration of President Clinton.' Whitewater, Troopergate, Paula Jones, Monica Lewinsky--all these scandals can be traced back to our double-barreled desperadoes.... But Rees-Mogg and Evans-Pritchard are merely servants of the `powerful London-centered apparatus.' The Mr. Big whose orders they obey is Prince Philip.... The intention, according to LaRouche, is to discredit, and destabilise the U.S. until it is forced to become a British colony once again, thus taking the House of Windsor another giant stride on its road to world domination."
    Wheen continued, "Only one person in Britain was powerful enough to thwart the conspiracy--Princess Diana, who had `declared war' on the royal family in her Panorama interview. And so she had to be killed."
    Wheen ended on a curious, slightly ominous, note: "This alliance between Al Fayed and Lyndon LaRouche seems risky, to say the least. Why should a prominent public figure aid and abet such an unscrupulous fantasy-merchant? If LaRouche doesn't wish to sully his reputation, he must disown Al Fayed forthwith," Wheen wrote.
    A half-dozen other slanders followed the Guardian article, in the Scotsman, on BBC-4 Radio, and even in the Danish press. One factor that clearly got the royals' blood boiling was that, according to the major British TV rating service, 12.5 million Britons watched the ITV documentary, and most of them also watched the studio debate that followed the evening news. On June 4, German national television aired the entire ITV broadcast, and major German dailies published lengthy excerpts from the transcript. In contrast, fewer than 3 million British viewers watched the Channel 4 smear the following evening. And, a Mirror newspaper poll, published on June 7, suggested that an overwhelming majority of Britons are convinced that there was more to the death of Diana than a traffic accident.

    The Strategic Battle

    As EIR has said from day one, the death of Princess Diana is the scandal that could hasten the fall of the House of Windsor. But, the future of the Club of the Isles oligarchy hangs in the balance today in a number of ways. The probe in Paris of Diana's death, if it turns up compelling evidence of a murder, or even of aggravated manslaughter caused by a paparazzi mob notorious for its links to British intelligence and the Crown apparatus, would certainly bring down both the Windsors and the current Socialist government in France, which also is deeply implicated in the crash and the cover-up.
    On other fronts, the British establishment is torn over how to deal with the onrush of the financial collapse. Prince Philip and his circle have no compunctions about throwing the world into decades of chaos and genocide, in order to retain oligarchical control. But other, less insane forces within the City of London financial elite are apparently asking, "What do we get out of such chaos and destruction?" and may be seeking a new political alliance, perhaps with the United States, and sane forces on the continent who are opposed to the suicidal Maastricht Treaty.
    Other issues that are causing divisions among the British elites include Britain's stance on the European Monetary Union, and the euro single curency. Furthermore, factions on the continent that share Prince Philip's impulse to play "chaos warfare," may be pressing for a new assault on the Asian currencies, including the Japanese yen, through the major continental banks and their offshore hedge funds, even though such a move at this moment would almost certainly trigger a global financial explosion with unpredictable consequences.
    Within the extended European oligarchy, which has, for decades, been under the boot of Prince Philip's Club of the Isles, there is intensive in-fighting and factional warfare, adding further to the crisis atmosphere spreading across Eurasia. The common point of agreement among the "chaos" factions within the British and continental oligarchies, is that the power of the United States, as the pillar of the nation-state system, must be destroyed in the immediate period ahead, lest LaRouche's ideas for a nation-state-centered New Bretton Woods solution to the present global mess, be adopted, along with LaRouche's vision for a Eurasian Land-Bridge plan of global economic reconstructed.

    New holes in cover-up of
    Diana murder plot

    Shortly after midnight, on Aug. 30-31, 1997, David Laurent, an off-duty senior French police official, was driving alone in his car on the right bank of the Seine River, heading toward the Place de l'Alma tunnel where, moments later, Diana Princess of Wales, her companion Dodi Fayed, and driver Henri Paul would die in a car crash. As he drove, Laurent was passed by a speeding white Fiat Uno, according to accounts he provided nine months ago to French Criminal Brigade police probing the Diana crash. As he approached the tunnel, Laurent noticed that the Fiat Uno that had sped by him, was now crawling along in the right traffic lane, almost at a standstill, just before the tunnel entrance.
    Although the behavior of the Fiat driver was a bit bizarre, Laurent drove on. It was, after all, Saturday night on the final weekend of the summer, and there were a lot of strange goings-on on the streets of Paris. Less than a moment later, however, Laurent heard a loud explosion from inside the tunnel, as he was driving a short distance ahead.
    It was not until the next morning that Laurent realized that the explosion he had heard from inside the tunnel was the crash that claimed the lives of Diana and her companions. And it was not until several weeks later that police forensic tests confirmed that the crash had been caused by a collision between the Mercedes 280-S carrying Diana, Fayed, Paul, and bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones, the sole survivor of the crash, and a Fiat Uno. Within hours of the crash, police at the scene had gathered up evidence--a side mirror and fragments of a tail light--suggesting that a two-car collision had occurred. A police sketch, drawn at the crash site, labeled a section of the tunnel the "collision zone." Several witnesses, interviewed during the first week after the crash, had described a small hatchback car, cutting in front of the Mercedes at the tunnel entrance, jamming its breaks inside the tunnel, fleeing the crash scene, and so on.
    But, until Laurent's critical piece of the story became public in early June, the role of the Fiat had remained ambiguous--despite the fact that the car and its driver have disappeared. Was the missing Fiat tragically in the wrong place at the wrong time, or was it critical to the most spectacular vehicular homicide in history?
    Laurent's description of the Fiat, speeding to a spot near the tunnel entrance, less than a minute ahead of Diana's car, which was under chase from several other cars and motorcycles, strongly suggests the latter possibility.
    For reasons yet unexplained, Laurent's crucial eyewitness account was withheld from the chief investigating magistrate, Hervé Stephan, for months.

    Tampering with evidence

    This is not the first time that the French police in charge of the investigation have tampered with evidence. Within hours of the crash, French police had told reporters that the Mercedes carrying Diana had been travelling at speeds of more than 120 miles per hour. How did they know? They told reporters that the speedometer of the mangled Mercedes had been frozen at more than 120 mph. EIR investigators determined that the French "leak" had to be a lie. Daimler Benz safety experts had told EIR reporters that, in any crash, the speedometer immediately goes back to zero. Two weeks later, the French police "corrected" the error; but this time, the media scarcely reported the correction. Similarly, French police had lied to reporters that Diana had been pinned in the rear compartment of the Mercedes, and saying that this was why it took so long to get her into an ambulance and to a hospital. Photographic evidence and eyewitness accounts later proved that it, too, was a premeditated lie by the French police.
    In the case of the Laurent testimony, sources tell EIR that the police have claimed that they have withheld certain vital evidence from Magistrate Stephan, to avoid the information falling into the hands of the attorneys for the paparazzi. The police allegedly claimed that their investigation "would be jeopardized" if the paparazzi were to learn crucial details.
    The Laurent revelation, which was leaked to the London Daily Mirror on June 4 by a well-placed French police source, was not the only new piece of evidence to emerge in early June. On June 3, the British independent television network ITV aired a one-hour investigative report, "Diana: The Secrets Behind the Crash," that seriously discredits French police claims that driver Henri Paul was drunk at the time of the crash.

    Carbon monoxide found in Paul's blood

    The assertion that Paul was drunk and high on two prescription drugs is pivotal to the ongoing effort, by the French government and the British establishment, to cast the crash as nothing more than a case of reckless, drunk driving. The claim that Paul had blood alcohol levels three times the legal limit at the time of the crash, was based solely on tests conducted by French coroners within hours of the crash. Independent forensic experts, including Dr. Peter Vanesis of the University of Glasgow, who reviewed the autopsy report, had harsh criticisms of the post mortem on numerous technical grounds.
    The ITV report revealed that the forensic tests also showed a near-lethal level of carbon monoxide as well. EIR has independently learned that it was a separate toxicological test on Paul's blood sample, that revealed a carbon monoxide level of more than 30% at the time of the crash.
    Yet, Dodi Fayed had no carbon monoxide in his blood. Is it possible that Paul could have had high levels of alcohol, traces of two prescription drugs, and toxic levels of carbon monoxide in his blood at the moment of the crash, and yet Fayed had no carbon monoxide present? Not if the carbon monoxide was inside the passenger cabin of the Mercedes.
    Furthermore, if Paul had been somehow poisoned with carbon monoxide sometime prior to getting behind the wheel of the Mercedes, experts interviewed by ITV say he would have shown obvious signs, such as dizziness, loss of balance, loss of depth perception, and an unbearable, throbbing pain in his temple. Security camera video footage of Paul, taken in the lobby of the Ritz Hotel between 9 p.m. and midnight, and aired in the ITV documentary, clearly showed that Paul had none of the tell-tale signs of being drunk or suffering from the effects of carbon monoxide.
    In a live television interview, aired one hour after the ITV broadcast, the documentary's host, Nicholas Owen, stated that he believed that the blood sample used in the post mortem was probably not taken from Paul. There were a dozen other corpses in the Paris city morgue at the time that Paul was brought in. This startling conclusion by Owen, adds further weight to EIR's charge that the French police--as distinct from chief investigating Magistrate Stephan--have been running a vicious cover-up of the events surrounding the crash.
    The ITV documentary also cited several eyewitness accounts that a powerful burst of light inside the tunnel, seconds before the crash, may have blinded Paul. Owen showed a commercially produced anti-personnel laser, that he purchased in a Paris shop for $300, to buttress the possibility that such a device was used in the vehicular attack.
    EIR Counterintelligence Director Jeffrey Steinberg appeared along with Owen and a half-dozen other investigators and expert analysts on the nationally televised interview show. Details of that broadcast and the vortex of media controversy, sparked by the ITV show and a second documentary, aired on June 4 on Channel Four TV in Britain, will appear in a forthcoming EIR (see also, the Editorial in this issue).
    In a move that promises to raise even more questions about what happened in the Paris tunnel on Aug. 31, 1997, Magistrate Stephan convened an extraordinary group interrogation, or "confrontation," on June 5, at the Justice Ministry in Paris. Mohamed Al Fayed, Dodi's father and a civil party to the case, was invited to participate, as were a dozen eyewitnesses to the crash. The nine paparazzi who stand to be prosecuted for manslaughter and interference in the rescue effort, were also interrogated by Stephan. Details of what took place are not yet available

    IR Reveals How Diana Murder Cover-up Has Turned Deadly

    June 30, 2000 (EIRNS)--The July 7, 2000 issue of Executive  Intelligence Review

    features a detailed report on the mysterious death of French paparazzo James Andanson, one of the pivotal figures in the Aug. 31, 1997 fatal car crash in Paris, that claimed the lives of Princess Diana, Dodi Fayed, and Henri Paul. Andanson's body was found in a desolate forest in the south of France, burned beyond recognition, on May 5, 2000.
    A week after his bizarre death, which French authorities have attempted to label a "suicide," three armed, masked men broke into the Paris offices of the Sipa Agency, the photography agency where Andanson was working at the time of his death, and stole computer disks, laptops, and cameras. The three men were believed to be agents of the French secret service, hunting for possibly incriminating photographs of the crash site that Andanson may have been hiding.
    The EIR story details the fact that Andanson, who owned a white Fiat Uno at the time of the 1997 crash, was a prime suspect in the Diana and Dodi wrongful deaths, yet French investigators accepted his alibi that he was not in Paris at the time of the crash. Tests of the paint and bumper scratches on his Fiat matched those on the side of the Mercedes carrying Diana and Dodi, according to forensic reports contained in the files of chief investigating magistrate, Herve Stephan. EIR also uncovered other break-ins and surpression of crucial evidence by both British and French intelligence services.
    Nearly three years after the fatal crash, the true circumstances are still being covered up, and the EIR story breaks new ground in exposing that cover-up. This story is "must" reading for anyone who has been attempting to get to the bottom of the Diana-Dodi deaths. As one specialist told EIR, "The death of Andanson may very well signal a new, deadly turn in the cover-up of the death of Princess Diana. It is reminiscent of the pile of corpses that littered the landscape following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, when scores of individuals with knowledge about the President's death, died under mysterious circumstances.
    The Murder of Princess Diana

    • Special Report
      [The] death of Princess Diana may have its nexus more to the ambulance ride and the treatment during that ride than to the accident itself. With billions of people throughout the planet interested in her death and the cause thereof, it is a deep mystery of why the focus of investigators and media circumvent this critical area of inquiry, which paradoxically seemed to be a mystery to the French Interior Minister and the Police Chief of Paris as well. Our mystery ties in as to why a VIP may have been traveling without a police escort in an ambulance taking, without acceptable explanation, one hour to get to a hospital. The answers have been to transport the injured Diana safely and to "avoid bumps." In that case, it seems every other ambulance throughout the world operates on a different basis, in recognizing a need to get an injured person quickly to a hospital; here, where a team of doctors, awaiting Diana's arrival, may have saved her. To our minds, and the minds of any reasonable man or woman, the one hour trip is inexcusable and carries compelling questions which demand detailed answers.
    • Diana — was it an accident or was she killed?  (It's pretty clear that she was murdered.)

    • The Diana Forum — Why did it take an hour to get Diana to the hospital? Why did the ambulance stop for ten minutes when just 600 yards away from it? Was she murdered, or brought close to death, by British agents when the ambulance was stopped? Was the purpose of this 10-minute stop to induce an abortion?

  • Diana's Grave Secret: Police To Probe Charles' Murder Plot
    It was clear that with opinion polls showing over 90% of Britons think Diana was murdered, something would have to be done to mount at least a semblance of justice. And a semblance is what we have here.
    The appointment of an already knighted senior police officer, Sir John Stevens to the investigation, indicates that the whole exercise is a sham. Furthermore, Sir John has assigned Commander David Armond to lead the inquiry. Commander Armond is a member of the Met's anti-terrorist branch which is a very political position ...
    All this is reminiscent of the case of the murdered weapons inspector David Kelly. The British establishment simply engaging in the usual sham of investigating itself.
  • Joe Vialls: Prince Charles Implicated in Murder of Princess Diana 
    Logic dictates Princess Di was deliberately frightened into writing the incriminating letter before her death, but science suggests that she did not write the letter at all.
     Document says Diana's car was replaceme (That web page was "disappeared" but is available here. The car in the crash that killed Princess Diana in Paris was a last-minute replacement either meant as a media diversion or because the vehicle she was supposed to take failed to start, according to British government documents released Tuesday [2005-03-15].
  • ymphora on Henri Paul's mysterious payments 
  • So here's a possible scenario: Diana was (possibly) pregnant by Dodi. The US/British power elite either knew this (perhaps her doctor's office was bugged) or were afraid it might be true. The prospect of someone of Arab descent (and perhaps a Muslim too) being in line to the British throne was anathema to the racist British establishment, and the Americans were concerned about what they saw as Diana's populist political activities (campaigning for an abolition of land mines and so on, with maybe the international arms trade targetted next) so the decision was made to eliminate her. The Mercedes in which she was supposed to leave the Ritz Hotel with Dodi failed to start (as intended by the plotters) and a replacement was produced. The brakes on the replacement car had been sabotaged. Henri Paul, their driver, sped off, followed by paparazzi, one of whom was in contact by phone with the driver of a white Fiat. The Fiat entered the Pont d'Alma Tunnel as Diana's car approached it. Somewhere in the tunnel, with the white Fiat just in front of the Mercedes, a powerful flashgun, aimed at Paul's car, was set off. This blinded Paul, and he hit the brakes, which did not work properly, ensuring that the car would crash. But the crash did not kill Diana. Much to the chagrin of the plotters, she was still alive. An ambulance (previously arranged by the plotters) was brought up and took her away, allegedly taking her to the Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital, 4 miles away. During this trip (which may or may not have involved an abortion) something was done to ensure that Diana would be dead on arrival at the hospital, or would die shortly afterward. The potential problem was thus removed.

    Diana, cause of death: ambulance ride which took one hour to travel 6 kilometers, 4 miles, to hospital. Why has no one focused on this platform of inquiry?
    1. Assuming driver, Henri Paul, was at fault due to intoxication, accept the reality that Princess Diana was not dead after the accident. She was very much alive and talking.
    2. The hospital to which she was taken, Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital, was 4 miles (6 kilometers) from the accident, occurring after midnight on a holiday weekend, with many away and the city streets quiet.
    3. Accept the reality that there has been no focus by the media on the at minimum, one hour, ambulance ride to travel 4 miles.
    4. Accept the reality that the time she slipped into the throes of death was during the one hour plus ambulance ride to the hospital.
    5. Le Parisien and Reuters reported that during the ambulance trip, the ambulance stopped to give her a massive injection of adrenaline.
    6. Le Parisien and Reuters further reported that the Interior Minister, Jean-Pierre Chevenement, and the police chief for Paris, France, Phillippe Massoni, two of the most powerful figures in the land, were mystified about the whereabouts of the ambulance due to its failure to timely reach the hospital.
    7. Assuming that ambulances in Paris, France in 1997 have radios or phones, answer why two men, among the most powerful in France, couldn't pick up a telephone and get an answer to the mystery.
    8. Further, consider whether the ambulance was sent without a police escort, and, if so, why.
    9. Subsequently the hospital asserted Diana received no injection of adrenaline during the ambulance ride. Was she treated at the hospital, upon her arrival, without full knowledge of what transpired during the ambulance ride? What did transpire? At the hospital was she (again) injected with adrenaline? Who was on the ambulance? What happened during an inordinate one hour trip with a VIP on board?
    10. Why isn't the media actively and aggressively pursuing this important matter? I
