Diana driver was secret informer
David Leppard



THE chauffeur of the car in which Diana, Princess of Wales died was working for the French secret service, the British team reinvestigating her death has been told.
The inquiry — headed by Lord Stevens, the former Metropolitan police commissioner — into the Paris car crash that killed Diana is now trying to obtain the chauffeur’s files from French intelligence but is being delayed by the reluctance of the authorities to hand them over.



Stevens’s team has asked the country’s domestic intelligence service, the DST, to surrender all its “agent handling” files on Henri Paul, the chauffeur, to establish whether he was doing any work for his French intelligence bosses on the night of the crash.

Paul crashed the car, killing himself, Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed in a tunnel in central Paris in 1997. It has previously been claimed — and strenuously denied — that he worked for SIS, the secret intelligence service, also known as MI6.

Well-placed sources say requests by the Stevens team for information about Paul’s activities on the day of the crash, and demands for complete records of tests taken on his blood after he died, have become bogged down by the “incredible bureaucracy” of the French justice system.

The delays mean the £4m inquiry, ordered by the royal coroner in 2004, is certain to stretch into the latter part of this year and may not be completed before 2007.

French police concluded the crash was an accident, caused by Paul driving the Mercedes in which Diana was travelling at high speed away from paparazzi while under the influence of drink and drugs.

The role of Paul, who was deputy head of security at the Paris Ritz hotel, and what he was doing in the hours up to the crash are central to the inquiry. Mohamed al-Fayed, the Harrods tycoon and Dodi’s father who also owns the Paris Ritz, has claimed Diana and his son were murdered by British intelligence.

Scotland Yard sources disclosed last week that the French government had finally confirmed Paul’s employment by the DST during discussions last year.

A Yard source said: “We now know he was working for the French secret service and the French have got to give us access to the records of what he was doing. It’s an issue. We want to know where he was and what he was doing that evening.”

After Paul’s death French police discovered he controlled secret accounts containing more than £100,000 in 14 banks across France.

The Stevens inquiry has been complicated by the apparent refusal of the French authorities to allow Yard detectives to see several key witnesses to the accident.

Stevens has said he is determined to “leave no stone unturned” in his investigation. He needs to establish beyond all doubt whether or not Paul was drunk and under the influence of powerful antidepressant drugs when he crashed the Mercedes.

Concerned that there may have been a forensic mix-up, Stevens is trying to persuade the French public prosecutor’s office to disclose all records of how Paul’s blood was analysed. The Yard team has also had to wait for a new report by Dr Gilbert Pepin, the French toxicologist who analysed Paul’s blood after the crash.

After a wrangle over the size of his fee for acting as an expert witness, Pepin has only recently supplied Stevens with a full account of his analysis of the blood taken from Paul’s body as it lay in the central Paris mortuary.

Stevens is also waiting to interview the female laboratory technician who took the blood from Paul’s body.

Fayed has claimed that MI6 agents visited the morgue on the night of the crash to plant evidence suggesting Paul was drunk, by substituting his blood for the alcohol-contaminated blood of a suicide victim. Sources say there were 25 bodies in the morgue that night.

After two years of investigation, Stevens still takes the view that Diana’s death was an accident. However, he is conscious of the fact that many people still believe she was murdered.

I can't believe that Lord Stevens thinks her death was an accident! After all the evidence points to murder!! Evil or Very Mad

Here is the text of the video:


Di's Driver Said To Have Been Spy
(CBS) Princess Diana's death continues to draw conspiracy theorists and controversy, more than eight years after the Paris car crash that killed her.



The latest wrinkle, says CBS News Correspondent Sheila MacVicar, involves reports Diana's driver on the night she died was a French spy.

MacVicar says the most complicated conspiracy theory argues Diana and boyfriend Dodi Fayed were murdered by British intelligence agents, and driver Henri Paul's' blood was tampered with.

Now, there are allegations the United States was tapping the princess's phone calls and that there is evidence in those transcripts that she was assassinated.

Almost all the conspiracy theories revolve around Paul, MacVicar points out.

The official French inquiry found that he was drunk.

Paul was a security official at the Ritz Hotel, and employee of Fayed's father, Mohamed Al-Fayed.

Quote:
"He actually believes that she was murdered," says royals watcher Robert Jobson. "The reality is, of course, also, that his car, his driver, were involved in this crash; therefore there will be people that believe that he is ultimately responsible not only for the death of his own son, but for the death of the princess."





The British inquest into Diana's death has launched a new investigation, whose aim is to put an end to the questions, MacVicar observes.

The head of the British inquiry, Lord Stevens, has remarked,
Quote:
"It's right to say that some of the issues raised by Mr. Fayed have been right to be raised. We're pursuing those. It's a far more complex investigation than any of us thought."


And, says MacVicar, far more confusing for the newspaper-reading public in Britain.

Over the weekend, the Sunday Times said Paul worked for a French intelligence agency, suggesting there might be something to the conspiracies.

But, MacVicar notes, French officials have long acknowledged that Paul was an informant for the domestic security agency.

As for blood samples being tampered with, a senior French prober tells CBS News they are confident they took measures to ensure the samples could not be tampered with or switched, and that the British inquiry, like the one in France, will find that Diana died at the hands of a drunk driver.

This month, three French photographers were convicted of violating Diana's privacy by taking pictures of her after the accident. They were symbolically fined the equivalent of about $1.20 each.

All these news read like something out of a James Bond novel.

I've just got one question:
If there's nothing screwy going on with this story, why did the Brits wait 9 years to hold their own inquest?
