The Queen cannot be forced to make any personal appearance in court. Philip and Charles can be ordered to appear in a criminal court, but as with Charles' diaries, his lawyers spoke for him. Anne was prosecuted under the dangerous dogs act after Dotty, her dog bit a couple of children. It was the first time a senior royal has been convicted of a criminal offence, no other senior royal has attended court for 100 years!

No, the investigation IS closed. Lord Stevens' report is the result of the investigation-now, the findings of that investigation will be heard before and considered by a jury, which is the actual inquest.

They can decide in several ways-accidental death, homicide, etc. Most likely, if they agree with the conclusions of the Paget report, they will decide accidental death.

I'm not familiar with British law-does anyone know if Mohammed Al Fayed can appeal the jury's decision?

The first link here simply outlines the role of the Coroner’s Court and the types of decisions that can be reached.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coroner#Inquest

At the beginning of this article it also outlines the role of the Coroner’s Court in an inquest.


http://www.contrast.org/hillsborough/history/inquest.shtm


Both make it clear that the court will have to determine the name of the deceased and the cause of death.

The possible verdicts are: death by misadventure, accidental death, unlawful killing, lawful killing, suicide, natural causes, and an open verdict.


There will be no apportioning of blame as that power has been removed.


Interesting that the second link says that the findings have to be in line with the medical evidence.

He can call for a Judicial Review on the grounds that the inquest had not been a thorough investigation into how the deceased met their deaths, that in his view many of his questions had not been answered.

I wouldn't put anything past him!

I wonder what the odds are that he will do just that if the verdict is anything other than murder.

He has been crying murder for so long now that he will use every legal means possible to get the ruling he wants.

Chrissy57 - I did not read the British report. What did they say about the white car that hit Diana's car making it go into the pillar? What about that photographer who owned a white car that was founded murdered?

I think the princes just want closure to their beloved mother's death and can any one blame them.

According to the Stephens report the photographer Andanson was not in Paris on the night of the accident (confirmed by his wife). His white fiat uno was also with him - 170 miles/km away from Paris on that night. (Can't remember which measurement they used). Although the paint samples do match there is no other evidence to suggest that his Fiat Uno was involved in the accident as where the repaint is on his car didn't match with where it would have been had it hit the Mercedes.

In addition, the findings, along with the French investigation, found that he committed suicide and wasn't murdered.

He was interviewed by the French authorities.

As for the supposedly stolen electronics from his place - none of his stuff was reported stolen.

pp. 728 - 730 of the report actually sum up the findings with the previous 40 pages going through the claims, particularly of Al Fayed, and the evidence to support or contradict those claims with statements from witnesses etc.

Why does that decision make you so mad? Don't you trust the baroness?

I see no reason to be mad. This was a perfectly wise decision to make: the jury must consist of people, who do not have prejudiced idea of the case and where would you find 12 people, who don't have a strong opinion about that tragic accident?
Besides, since Princess Diana was still considered a member of the Royal Family, the jury should have consisted of the members of the Royal Household and that would not be a very good idea, imo.

I'll add my tuppence - there really is no need to be mad. Look, the fact is that this inquest was demanded by those obssessed with conspiracy theories and to shut them up, the British Government gave the go ahead. Each year, this costs Britons over 4million and it's a joke. We're not paying anymore. This is it. After this inquest, that's it. The Government saw the Baroness as the one to deal with the inquest, whatever she says goes. If people don't like the way the BRITISH are carrying out an inquest into the death of a BRITISH woman then they can spend several million on a seperate inquest.

I only wonder what the Baroness meant when she said:
"There is much in what Lord Stevens' report says which is capable of challenge". But I guess we will find out in May - probably Lord Stevens has already been informed and will deliver an additional report.
