Princess Diana

Father of man killed in crash with Princess Diana claims she was murdered

The father of the man driving Princess Diana and her boyfriend in 1997, on the tragic day they crashed in Paris, claims authorities purposely killed them.

In an exclusive interview with The Mirror, chauffeur driver Henri Paul’s father, 85-year-old Jean, said that there has always been talk that the crash that killed Princess Diana, Dodi Fayed, and his son was no accident.

“Inside Scotland Yard, some believe there was a secret plot to kill Diana.”

Jean admitted he feared dying without knowing for sure if his son’s death was intentionally caused. Yet, he said he’s convinced they were murdered to stop Princess Diana from marrying Dodi Fayed, a Muslim, and that his son was simply a casualty of the circumstances.

“Diana was killed and my son was killed. I believe they were both murdered. My son was simply ­collateral damage of a plot to kill Diana and they killed him as well.I am 100% sure he was not involved in this plot. He was too honourable and too honest. The English police came here to visit me and sat exactly where you are sitting now….Even inside Scotland Yard there are two sides. One believes there was a secret plot to kill Diana, the other believes it was a genuine accident.”

The incident occurred on August 31, 1997, in Paris, as Paul drove a Mercedes-Benz S280 down the Pont de l’Alma road tunnel, with Diana and Dodi riding as passengers. Officials claimed that Paul was driving at a high speed while intoxicated, which ultimately caused the crash, but Jean said his son didn’t drink or do drugs.

“On that day there were over 20 autopsies that took place and it was easy for the authorities to switch blood samples to show alcohol was present in the sample they said was Henri’s. That is what I believe happened.”

Regardless, Princess Diana’s death is still ruled as accidental. Her former boyfriend, James Hewitt, said he was warned to stay away from her when they dated. Hewitt, did say, however, that he was never threatened with death, despite rumors.

Further, bodyguard Barry Mannakee, Princess Diana’s first boyfriend after he split with Prince Charles, was killed in a car accident in 1987. Although some theorize he was killed intentionally as well, there has never been enough proof to confirm it.

“The very last thing I want to say about this incident is: Someone killed my son. Someone killed my son,” Jean said.
