The procedural hearings - to determine whether or not a jury will be needed and whether or not to hold one inquest for both Diana and Dodi or to hold separate inquests - will be held next Monday and Tuesday.

If the decision is two inquests they could reach different conclusions, one have a jury and one not, have different coroners etc. That would cost the British taxpayer a lot more, IMHO. I think one inquest should be sufficient as they died in the same accident but I suspect that Al Fayed will push for two inquests and hope to get two different results thus causing more conspiracy theorists to abound.

According to the following link the Queen will be represented at the precedural hearings but not at the inquest itself, which will be heard later this year.

However, Mr Al Fayed may have thought there was some advantage for himself, and/or his son, in the public association with the Princess at the Ritz Hotel. The business about the former Paris home of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor was hardly subtle.

Al Fayed to demand the people's jury 'must rule on Diana's death'

Mohammed Al Fayed is to demand that a jury 'of the people' decide the inquest verdict on Princess Diana.

I know that she means a lot to a lot of people. I admire the devotion to her, almost 10 years since her death. However, can't this poor woman just rest in peace? She's dead, it was a horrible tragedy, but don't you think it is time to move on?


I don't understand the press' insistence on dragging this out.

Don't you?
Diana was and is a source of money. The Press is just cashing on her memory, that's it.

I figured as much, but I guess what I meant is ASIDE from money, what else could be gained for them by doing this? I think there's other ways of keeping her memory alive.

I guess her memory will live in her children, in her legacy and in the things she did during her life.
But for the press Diana is money (in my opinion). They hardly care to keep her memory alive. They just want to sell the newspaper.
In my opinion only.

I agree. I guess I'm just of the mindset that this "inquest" isn't really going to garner any new information and that it's going overboard.

The British officials are completing the inquest as they are legally required to do. They don't have a choice, and the press isn't driving them to it.

What a great point, I'd never thought about it that way, but boy, does it make sense. This would explain why Al Fayed wants everyone's finger pointing squarely at anyone, but himself.

He is either completely delusional or he must, deep down, feel some responsibility for what happened that night.

<He> provided the chauffeur
<He> had insisted on switching cars at the last minute

..which would have made it difficult for any assasination plan to be carried out at that point, with all these moving , changing components.

And of course, do we really still believe that the princess was to be murdered because of who she was dating? Please.

That man is becoming predictable. It is about time someone says it like it is: Fayed bears more responsibility for the death of Diana than any secret service.

Who knows - that is just what the inquest might find - accident caused by ineptitude of the Al Fayed staff!!!


I do suspect that the verdict will be accidental death and then, unless conclusive new evidence comes to light that will be an end of the official legal matters.

Then the civil law suits can begin!!!

'No Royal Jury' For Diana Inquest

The coroner at the inquest into the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, has said she does not want to appoint a jury made up of members of the Royal Household. Britain's former top female judge, Baroness Butler-Sloss, said it would be "inappropriate" to take the step during preliminary hearings at the High Court.

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/08012007/14...a-inquest.html

Inquests on Diana and Dodi to be held separately

LONDON (Reuters) - Inquests into the deaths of Princess Diana and her lover Dodi al Fayed in a 1997 car crash, one of the most thoroughly investigated events of recent times, are to be held separately but at the same time

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/08012007/32...eparately.html

Formal inquest on Diana death reopened

The judge overseeing official inquiries into the deaths of Princess Diana and her lover Dodi al Fayed in 1997 ruled on Monday that royal officials would not sit on any jury considering how they died.

Well, as both were not even close to the scene of the incident and can only give background information I don't think they will be subjected to an appearance in court where the lawyer's of Al-Fayed will surely try to tear them apart. Isn't there a kind of immunity for the Royal family which makes it necessary to have important reasons for calling them into the witness stand? In Belgium, prince Laurent (who is allegedly involved in an affair which will lead to a trial) is protected by his status as Royal senator of the senate of Belgium and they will need good reasons to strip him of this immunity. How's the situation in Britain?
