Sorry for the confusion, but this is the section I was replying to, where you said the inquest was held before the post mortem, which can't happen. The doctor/hospital give you a certificate of death, if the postmortem says that the death was due to natural or expected causes, the coroner releases the body and you can then arrange for the undertaker to deal with the arrangements.

As far as Diana is concerned, because she died abroad, violently, there really was no option but to have an inquest. This government site explains, for the layman what happens, why it happens etc.

It is now being reported that Al Fayed is seeking a judicial review of the decision not to have a jury

BBC NEWS | UK | Diana inquest ruling challenged

Al Fayed for fight Diana ruling | UK Latest | Guardian Unlimited


This site has a series of Q and A about the inquest and inquests in general. I was particularly interested in the question about juries and the reasons for them in British inquests.


BBC NEWS | UK | Q&A: Diana inquest


According to this last site - only 3% of inquests have juries and there are only four types of cases in which a jury is mandatory - and Diana's death doesn't fit the requirement.

Whether Diana's inquest fits the criteria or not, Al Fayed does'nt care.

Amazing, we only discussed him going for a judicial review a short time ago on here, I did at least think he would wait until the verdict was announced.

From the way I read the Baroness's statement when she said that she wasn't appointing a jury I was expecting this - she said that she wanted any review of that decision (not in those words exactly but that is the gist of it from the way I interpreted it) done quickly.

He will want a judicial review of every step he can get unless or until he gets the decision he wants - murdered on the orders of Prince Philip!

He will never stop... He needs the Diana and Dodi story as advertising for his shop.

I agree that he will never stop but...


I don't really think Harrods needs any advertising. It was a leading store long before he bought it and will continue to be a leading store long after he sells it, whenever that may be.

Diana coroner decision 'flawed'

Allowing Baroness Butler-Sloss to sit as coroner at the inquests of Dodi Al Fayed and Diana, Princess of Wales, was "fatally flawed", a lawyer has said.

BBC NEWS | UK | Diana coroner decision 'flawed'

I rather think that it is Al Fayed who is flawed!

Oh, for heaven's sake. Butler-Sloss could just as easily make the same recommendations as a jury might.

I thought any jury would be composed of members of the Royal Household? You'd think that would be the last thing Al Fayed would want.

The Queen's spokesperson and Butler Sloss have already said that even if a jury was to be appointed, it would not be members of the Queens household.

Princess Diana Inquest Jury Ruling

The High Court is to rule on whether inquests into the deaths of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed should be heard by a jury.

It's strange to think that the only reason al Fayed is getting all the publicity, official enquiries etc, is off of the back of Diana. Who herself would not be getting any of the attention but for the family al Fayed hates so much!

Diana inquest to be heard by jury

The High Court decided on Friday that the inquest into the death of Princess Diana in a Paris car crash 10 years ago should be heard by a jury.

Ruling On Princess Diana Inquest Jury

Harrods boss Mohammed Al Fayed has won a legal victory which means a jury will hear the inquests into the deaths of his son Dodi and Diana, Princess of Wales. The ruling overturns the decision by coroner Baroness Butler-Sloss to hear the case alone.

This is excellent news, it is good to see that Lady Butler-Sloss' decision has been overturned.

For what difference it'll make.

If the verdict is accidental death, whether through drunk driving or because of the paparazzi, Fayed will just accuse the whole lot of them of a cover-up and claim that the conspiracy was wider than anyone realised. And the conspiracy theorists won't be mollified by such a decision either; it won't make anyone change their minds. If anything, it'll feed right into the mindset of conspiracy theorists.

So, what will happen when, again, it's decided by a jury this time that it was a tragic accident? Accusations that the jury was paid off? Another inquest?

Edit: I see we were having the same thought, Elspeth!
