Diana, Questions Remain, The Times


Alan Hamilton, at The Times, 8 April 2008, writes a news item entitled: "Diana, Princess of Wales... some questions remain."

Hamilton writes:

1. What exactly caused Henri Paul to lose control of the Mercedes has never been made clear... The white Fiat Uno, of which much was made but which has never been found, may or may not have been a factor...It is still unclear whether there was another vehicle which got in Paul’s way and then sped off...

2. Why Dodi chose to have the car driven by Henri Paul, who was the acting head of security at the Ritz and not a professional driver, when fully qualified chauffeurs were available, has never been satisfactorily explained.

3. Major doubts still cloud the question of how much Paul had had to drink, as much of his evening remains unaccounted for. With suspicious speed, the French authorities rushed out a statement that he had been three times over the French drink-driving limit.

The possibility remains that the blood samples from the postmortem examination were switched, whether by accident or design. Professor Robert Forrest, an expert toxicologist from the University of Sheffield, told the jury that the French routines for safeguarding samples and sending them for analysis were slack by British standards...

4. Would the Princess have survived if medical procedures had been different?...

From crash to operating theatre took nearly two hours...

5. A ring that Dodi had bought the previous afternoon...


Unfortunately, Hamilton seems to have been persuaded to slant his story to fit in with the views of the Establishment. Hence the headlines -

Version (1) The remaining questions

Version (2) Conspiracies quashed, but questions remain and Diana, Princess of Wales conspiracies can be left to time lords ...
