The `MI6 factor' in the murder of Princess Diana
by Our Special Correspondent
Recently, EIR was one of several news organizations that received an unsolicited e-mail
transmission, identifying senior officials of MI6, the British foreign intelligence
service, including individuals who are accused of having been involved in the Aug. 31,
1997 deaths of Princess Diana, Dodi Fayed, and Henri Paul. The three were killed in a car
crash in Paris, that, to this day, remains one of the great unsolved mysteries of the 20th
More than 21 months after the crash, the official French
investigation, headed by Judge Hervé Stephan, is still under way, and some of the most
disturbing questions about the fatal crash remain unanswered, including the most basic
question: Was it an assassination?
EIR has been well-known for our exhaustive coverage of the death of Princess Diana,
identifying otherwise unpublished leads, and pointing to the involvement of British and
other intelligence agencies, in the run-up to the crash, and in the effort to cover up the
evidence that Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed were the targets of a murder plot.
Some of the information provided in the e-mail posting has been
independently verified by EIR. Indeed, three MI6 officials, identified as having
been intimately involved in the events leading up to the fatal crash, and the ensuing
cover-up, have been previously identified by EIR as suspected culprits, acting on behalf
of the House of Windsor, under the personal orders of Prince Philip.
In late 1997, EIR published exclusive photographs showing that a team of at least seven
men were surveilling the Ritz Hotel on the evening of Aug. 30, 1997--during the final
hours before the crash in the Place d'Alma tunnel.
As this issue of EIR goes to press, a French court is in the process of deciding whether
Judge Stephan will be ordered to pursue further leads on the crash provided by Mohamed Al
Fayed, the father of Dodi Fayed, who has made numerous public statements to the effect
that he believes that the crash was not an accident. Al Fayed is a civil party to the
case, and, as such, is entitled, under French law, to present new leads and evidence for
consideration by the chief investigator before the final report is released.
In the interest of furthering the investigation into the Paris crash, we publish the text
of the anonymous document below. We cannot, at this time, independently authenticate many
of the details provided. However, we pass the document along as "raw" material.
As we pursue the leads contained in the document, we will keep our readers informed. Here
is the e-mail text (the names section contains the year and city to which the alleged
agents were posted):
