'No Diana Conspiracy', Inquiry Rules

The death of British royal DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES, was a "tragic accident" and not a murder conspiracy according to the official UK police inquiry. The report out today (14DEC06) concludes the 1997 Paris car crash that killed her alongside DODI FAYED and chauffeur HENRI PAUL was the result of speeding, and that Paul was over the legal drink-drive limit. LORD STEVENS, who led the three-year investigation, says, "There was no conspiracy to murder any of the occupants of that car." He added, "I have no doubt that speculation as to what happened that night will continue and that there are some matters, as in many other investigations, about which we may never find a definitive answer." Fielding questions about her alleged engagement and pregnancy at the time of the accident, Lord Stevens insisted evidence seemed to disprove both rumours. He said, "We have spoken to many of her family and closest friends and none of them have indicated to us that she was either about to or wished to get engaged. "PRINCE WILLIAM has confirmed to me that his mother had not given him the slightest indication about such plans for the future." Around 400 people, including Diana's ex-husband PRINCE CHARLES, the DUKE OF EDINBURGH and the heads of British intelligence services MI5 and MI6, were interviewed or contacted by the inquiry. It forms part of the inquest, due to resume next year (07), into the Paris deaths. Lawyers for security man TREVOR REES, the sole survivor of the crash, refused to comment on the report's findings.
