The lady for whom Elton John sang Candle in the Wind died in mysterious circumstances being hounded by the press. After a lot of hullabaloo, the UK government has released a dossier on the tragic causes behind her untimely and youthful death.
The statements that were given in the dossier had had over 65 deleted sentences in them. A long roster of names was given in the paper. The elimination of certain vital information was due to the privacy of a few individuals.
This of course has provoked controversy since it points in the direction of secrecy and a hiding of the details. The earlier facts pointed the finger at the chauffeur of the car Diana was in when she died.
The Egyptian billionaire Mohamed Al Fayed’s son Dodi died along with Diana in the crash. He claims that the royal family and members of the British state had connived to kill Diana and his son since she was going to marry Dodi. And of course Dodi was a Muslim.
He maintains his point of view that it was not a mishap but a murder. "This is not an accident," he said in the early hours of 31 August 1997, when he learned of the deaths. "It is a plot, an assassination."
About half a decade ago, an inquiry into the death of Diana showed that several British spies were active during the period leading up to Diana’s death.
The facts got all mixed up and ultimately conspiracy theories sprouted up in their place. The details of the day when the sad event occurred were laid out in vivid conciseness.
It shows several points which had been misinterpreted until now. And it makes clear a few misunderstandings. Yet no force on earth can bring Princess Diana back. She has left this world forever and it is a sadder place without her.
