On December 8, 2000 Unknowncountry.com published its first story about the possibility that Princess Diana had been murdered by shadowy figures, possibly connected to the British intelligence agency MI6 and by extension to the royal family. In our story, we wrote of "a file describing a plan to assassinate the then Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic by crashing his limousine. The plan was to cause Milosevic's limo to crash in a tunnel, because the concrete walls meant that the crash would be violent enough so that there would be no survivors. A tunnel would also reduce the possibility of casual witnesses. It was suggested that one way to cause the crash would be to disorient the driver by using a strobe flash gun, which has been used by MI6 to disorient enemy helicopter pilots and terrorists. This scenario is remarkably similar to the circumstances and eyewitness accounts of the crash that killed Princess Diana."
British police have announced that they are examining new evidence that a member of the British military might have murdered the princess and her fiancee Dodi Fayed in precisely the manner described above. Apparently they are investigating an allegation raised by the former parents-in-law of a British soldier claiming a member of the British military committed the murder, killing Diana, Dodi Fayed and their driver, all of whom died in the August 31, 1997, crash.
Reportedly, British military police passed the information to civilian authorities. If this was indeed a crime, the very nature of the situation would require that more than one individual be involved.
There have long been suspicions that British and French intelligence services had some involvement in planning and carrying out the princess's death, and that the British royal family was somehow involved. It is not currently known where the present inquiry leads, if anywhere.
We continued to follow the story, and in 2007 reported that "MI6 agents were operating in Paris on the night of August 31, 1997, the time of the car crash that killed Princess Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed. Photographer James Andanson was one of the most aggressive of the paparazzi following Princess Diana. His body was found in May of 2000 in the burned out remains of a BMW in a forest in the south of France. Andanson's death was ruled a suicide by French police, but Dodi's father, Mohammed Al Fayed, maintains that he, as well as Diana and his son Dodi, were murdered by British undercover government agents, who were ordered to do so by Prince Philip, to cover up the fact that Diana was pregnant with Dodi's child."
Mohammed Al Fayed was never able to obtain irrefutable evidence that his son and the princess were murdered.
