Diana's retort to a newspaper:
" How interesting last week I wrote to them the same message sent to my brother as well as yourself .... I do not
believe for one moment it is not believed or pondered about whether or not I channel through Andrew
Russell-Davis, remembering of course it was "Andrew Spedding" ( an Editor I believe at this very paper)
whom I spoke to in 2005 warning of the London bombings; only to be ignored and worse insulted by him ... the
newspapers resident psychiatrist I think he called himself and four days later 52 innocent people lost their
lives in them! By nature though hardliners journalists, sceptical, cynical and ruthless, as I experienced of
course in life as well as via this editor, this is why I have sent this message to the newspaper itself with a fact
detailed, not fiction, so no pink pigs flying past my "f*****g" windows, Andrew ! English is such a rich
language... how sad you had to use such base terms to personally express yourself but perhaps you do this
This paper has no reason therefore to question the authenticity really, does it, and perhaps the reason why it is
covering Michael Mansfield in such depth as opposed to others! Andrew my chosen voice channel, at this time
anyway, is an unknown but Mr. Mansfield himself also now has been made aware of my site, so behind the
scenes I am quietly confident tremendous progress is being made. I have always said truth will out about
everything after the death of Her Majesty ! "

EXCLUSIVE: WHY IT WAS DIANA 'MURDER PLOT'
Friday September 18.2009
By Mark Reynolds
PRINCESS Diana's death could have prompted a murder inquiry had French authorities and British police
been made aware of a note in which she predicted she would be killed, a top lawyer claims.
Scotland Yard detectives French failed to disclose to the existence of the note, written by Diana's divorce
lawyer Lord Mishcon after a conversation with her in 1995.
Diana told him she believed there was a plot to kill her, possibly in a staged car crash.
The note said: "Efforts would be made if not to get rid of her (be it by some accident in her car such as a
pre-prepared brake failure or whatever) ... at least to see that she was so injured or damaged as to be declared
French police had been made aware of this note they would have been "Obliged" to investigate Diana's death in
a Paris car crash in 1997 as more than a simple road accident, believes Michael Mansfield, one of the country's
Instead, British police held on to it, only Allowing it to become public knowledge years later, long after the
French inquiry had wound down.
Eminent Mr Mansfield QC, who has examined the case in detail, said yesterday that if the note had been
submitted to the French authorities at the time, it could have led to a murder investigation.
He said the initial French inquiry into the crash suffered from a "serious deficiency" because investigators
were not informed of the existence of the note.
Lord Mishcon passed the note, in the strictest of confidence, to British police following a meeting with the then
Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Paul Condon, and Assistant Commissioner Sir David Veness shortly
after the Princess's death. But it was never handed on to the French. Nor were its contents disclosed.
In addition, while the senior police officers admitted they had seen the note and were aware of its contents,
they did not share this immediately with the British coroner conducting at the Princess's inquest into death,
nor with Diana's sister, Lady Sarah McCorquodale.
Giving evidence at the inquest, she admitted no police officer had ever shown her the note.
"I have already checked with my siblings and they have not seen it either," she told the hearing.
Mr Mansfield said yesterday: "When the note was given to the police, if they had handed it straight over the
contents or made known to the French police they would have had to investigate.
"There were representatives of the French police visiting London and New Scotland Yard and they could have
been made aware of the gist of the note. I think that the French had known, they would have been Obliged to
"The point is that there was information suggesting that she thought somebody was going to kill her in an
accident or a car crash or something. Obviously if a police force anywhere in the world gets information like
that, while you do not automatically assume that it is correct, you obviously have to investigate.
"It might have come to a dead-end, but it might have come to a murder inquiry."
Under French law, "removing or concealing" evidence which could "facilitate the discovery of a crime" to
Constitutes offense punishable by three to five years in jail or a fine of between £ 40,000 and £ 65,000.
The startling claims will add to pressure on the Three Yard officers who were aware of the note's existence - Sir
Paul Condon, now Lord, Sir David and former commissioner Lord Stevens. Of the evidence given at the
inquest by the three men, Mr Mansfield said: "Anyone who reads what happened can come to their own
"The case that was being put to them was that there was an obligation in my view To ensure that that
information (the note) was given to the English coroner straight away.
"That is what should have happened and it did not. Had the English coroner had the note earlier, it might well
have affected how the inquest into Diana's death was carried out.
"If you are given information like that, it's like a note left by somebody who has committed suicide. You would
obviously take it into account and you would look into Whether it really was suicide.
"The conclusions you would eventually come to depend on the investigations but it is obviously and clearly
relevant to a material fact. The fact of her expression of fear should have been taken seriously from the
beginning in the sense that it should have been investigated. "
Mr Mansfield has outlined many of his concerns in his autobiography Memoirs Of A Radical Lawyer.
The 67-year-old lawyer represented Harrods tycoon Mohamed Al Fayed at the 2008 inquest into the deaths of
his son Dodi and the Princess. Mr Mansfield insisted that the jury did not accept it had been a simple accident.
"Accident I have always believed that whatever caused the crash, it was not on. And, as it transpired, that what
was shared by the jury at the inquest. "It returned a verdict of unlawful killing.
A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said last night: "All these issues have been thoroughly investigated at the

Professor Dominique Lecomte, the controversial pathologist who conducted Paul's post mortem investigation,
and Dr. Gilbert Pepin, the toxicologist who tested his blood appear to have submitted suspect evidence. The
judge conducting the crash enquiry has accepted claims - first revealed by the Daily Express - of errors and
omissions in the paper trail that led French police to determine that the crash was solely due to Henri -Paul's
New documents handed to the judge reveal that while Lecomte testified on oath that she had taken just three
blood samples from Henri -Paul, a laboratory log book shows that five samples were taken - raising fears that
the extra samples were wrongly attributed to Henri -Paul. They also show how poisons expert Pepin claimed
that one sample he tested revealed that Henri - Paul had 1.74 grams per litre of alcohol in his blood, but that
finding is not supported in his paperwork! The documents reveal how paperwork relating to a second blood
test by the forensic toxicologist gives two widely differing readings for the amount of alcohol in Henri -Paul's
The new evidence strengthens claims that the results were faked. Sources involved in the investigation believe
that security services ordered samples from the chauffeur to be switched with those from a suicide victim. The
driver's body was taken from the Alma tunnel to the Institut Medico Legal mortuary in the Place Mazas for an
autopsy which began on Sunday 31st August 1997, so later that morning. That weekend there were a further
24 bodies awaiting examination. After a battery of tests, Dr Pepin and pathologist Professor Lecomte
confirmed Henri -Paul's blood-alcohol level was three times the UK legal limit. The blood test results also
appear to show that Henri -Paul had breathed in an extraordinary level of carbon monoxide before his death,
the same amount as a person committing suicide by putting a rubber hose from the exhaust into the window of
The high level - 20.7 per cent - would have left Henri -Paul on the verge of coma, certainly unable to stand and
quite incapable of piloting a car at speed through the streets of Paris. Yet at the Ritz Hotel earlier that previous
evening, minutes before he drove Diana to her death, CCTV cameras show him walking normally and even
kneeling down to retie his shoelaces. It is also known that Henri -Paul was killed instantly by the impact, ruling
out any possibility that he inhaled poisonous exhaust fumes.
When Dodi's blood was tested, it showed no signs of carbon monoxide. A later search by police of Henri -Paul's
flat and the Ritz Hotel itself failed to discover any faulty gas heaters which could have been leaking carbon
monoxide. Even Judge Herve Stephan, who conducted the original probe into Diana's death, has declared
unofficially that the presence of gas in Henri -Paul's blood is a mystery.
Yet many involved in the investigation and the Henri -Paul family believe the blood samples with alarming
carbon monoxide and alcohol readings are not the chauffeur's but those of a suicide victim lying in the
mortuary that night. Adding to the belief of Mr al - Fayed and friends of Diana that there has been a massive
cover-up by MI6 and the French equivalent, the DGSE, authorities in Paris have repeatedly refused requests
to reveal the identity of the other 24 victims in the mortuary. There is no suggestion that either expert acted
improperly but the security source claims that the judge firmly believes blood analysis reports may have been
falsified or that the samples in storage have in some way been tampered with.
His investigation has been hindered by the death in July 1998 of a key witness at the forensics laboratory who
was in charge of the handling and storage of samples. The man, whose identity has not been disclosed, was
never interviewed by earlier investigators, despite the belief by a number of officials involved in the current
probe that he could have provided vital evidence of a cover-up.

Interesting to note it is reported that when the Queen was first informed of events happening in Paris; she is
said to have said "Someone must have greased the brakes" ... now read on !
The crash is part of popular legend now but some troubling facts have emerged. Among them: the hastily
rented black Mercedes S-280 may have had serious mechanical failures; and driver Henri -Paul's blood, apart
from a high alcohol content, showed an abnormally high--and yet unexplained--level of carbon monoxide; and
an ex-British intelligence agent, Richard Tomlinson, gave testimony last week that could lead French
investigators to seek additional information on what Britain's MI6 knows about the tragedy.
THE MERCEDES BENZ
The gendarmes' specialized research unit will hand over its technical report on the Mercedes in late
September, and sources close to the investigation indicate that they have found no major problems. That is
surprising, because certain items in the dossier, and the analysis of outside experts, point to some potentially
serious malfunctions. The front air bags, which probably saved bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones' life, may also
have provoked the final crash. According to the report of a trauma expert at La Pitie-Salpetriere hospital, the
nature of TrevorRees-Jones' facial injuries suggests that the air bags may have inflated with explosive force
before the Mercedes struck the 13th pillar. That raises the possibility that the initial brush with another car,
the mysterious Fiat Uno, may have triggered the deployment of the air bags, stunning and blinding Paul at a
At the request of TrevorRees-Jones' French attorney, investigating Judge Herve Stephan ordered a technical
report on the air bags last December. The resulting document is inconclusive but does not rule out this
hypothesis. Sources close to Trevor Rees-Jones say his lawyers may be preparing a damage suit against
Mercedes Benz based on this possible malfunction.
The car may have had other major flaws. The regular chauffeur of the Mercedes, Olivier Lafaye, testified that a
persistent warning light on the dashboard indicated a problem with the antilock braking system and the brake
linings. The manager of the Etoile rental company, Jean-Francois Musa, told investigators that he had checked
with a Mercedes dealer and was told that it was a false alert due to "air bubbles" in the hydraulic-brake circuit
but the claim of air in the brake system, if true, is itself worrisome: automotive experts consulted say this
could reduce the efficiency of the brakes.
Investigators have discovered another anomaly: the brake fluid contained 7.5% water. Since water is not
normally present in the system, Judge Stephan has requested an expert report on how it got there and whether
it could have caused the brakes to malfunction. Experts consulted say this amount of water could cause
corrosion and rust that might impair or even disable the brakes. In any event, the nature of the treadmarks left
on the road--continuous rather than broken lines--suggests that the antilock brakes did not function properly.
According to chauffeur Lafaye's deposition, Musa also knew that the car was unstable and tended to "skate out
at the rear end" when brakes were applied sharply. Lafaye told the judge that the Mercedes "did not hold the
road. You had to know this car to drive it safely, and Henri Paul had never driven it." This claim is backed up
by Jean Pietri, a veteran French automotive engineer who has independently analyzed the physical
phenomena surrounding the accident.
By comparing the mathematical curve of the Mercedes' trajectory with the actual tire marks left on the road
surface, Pietri concludes that the car "tended systematically to veer to the right." That would help explain why
Henri - Paul was unable to avoid hitting the Fiat Uno in the right lane as he tried to steer around it. The
inherent instability of the vehicle, says Pietri, could be due to faulty shock absorbers or more likely, to a
misalignment of the wheels.
There was reason to believe that the Mercedes had mechanical problems before Henri - Paul ever took the
wheel. The car had been stolen in April 1997, stripped for parts and repaired at a cost of more than $20,000.
Though the Mercedes passed a police inspection on July 7, 1997, Lafaye's testimony indicates that there were
still some doubts about its road worthiness. This known why was this Mercedes - Benz chosen to take"Diana,
Princess of Wales" and boyfriend Dodi Fayed from the "Ritz Hotel" to his Paris apartment on August 31st 1997
when Mohamed al -Fayed had on standby in its usual spot in the Vendome underground parking garage for the
couples use his green bullet proof Mercedes - Benz 500 SEL with its extensive security features? Why indeed !
