Theres been soo many conspriacy theories surrounding her death. One of them I remember was that "Diana wasn't the intended target Dodi was." These theories go on and on.

The problem I have with the death of Diana is the lack of certain notorious factions celebrating the death of a member of the House of Windsor....let alone the Crown Jewel.

It will be impossible for Mohammed Al-Fayed and his legal team to substantiate the conspiracy theory. The day Mohammed Al-Fayed proves his case may severely undermine the prestige of the British Royal family. It is understandable that Mr. Al-Fayed still grieves his sonís untimely death, but everything has got limits, especially accusations.
Even if the car crash were ďa professional jobĒ, it was perfectly executed so that no one could have found any accusatory evidence. At the same time, the possibility that the car crash might be just a chain of unlucky coincidences should not be excluded either.

The point is, when it's proved that Philip had nothing to do with it and the RF aren't murdering Nazis, will Mr Al-Fayed go down for slander as he should?

For those in North America, MSNBC is showing a program right now (8pm Eastern/7pm central time) featuring the top five conspiracy theories of the death of Diana.

Geraldo had a program last night about the accident, and claimed to have a picture that was taken from the front of the car, moments before the crash. It showed a shocked-looking Henri Paul staring stright ahead, but it was too difficult to make out the other figures in the picture though they said Trevor Rees-Jones was looking in the rear view mirror and Diana was looking out the back window.

It seemed strange that nothing else was said about the picture or its source.

He also showed one of the photos of the dying Diana..much more clear than the one shown a few years ago in America.

What is the name of the American couple (from New York) who have been making the rounds of these sorts of shows because they were witnesses within seconds of the crash?

I know who you are referring to -- Goldsmith or something? They said the police showed no interest in talking to them -- except the police were interested in whether or not they had taken any pictures.

It's clearly possible that professionals could have caused the accident -- and then finished off the job in the ambulance. A different car was brought around at the last minute -- and maybe the seat belts didn't work, and who knows what else might have malfxnd. A different driver was brought around at the last minute. It seems like too many last minute changes without a rational reason.

Moreover, Henri Paul acted like he was wacked out on something - apparently earlier in the day when he was driving other people according to reports. He could have taken / or been given drugs to alter his judgment and ability to function normally.

Additionally, the rush to mock and scoff any suspicion as coming from conspiracy nuts is also a little over done and only adds more suspicion.

If Diana was assassinated though, I doubt it had much to do with her Al Fayed association, which unfortunately acts as a smoke screen and diverts attention from the real motive.

That seems like a reasonable wish, IMHO - it's always better to review the material by oneself and one's legal advisors. Here in Germany it is standard procedure that your lawyer asks to be shown all documents including the transcripts of all police interrogations etc. Maybe that even puits an end to his suspicions.

Fayed lawyers ask to see Charles' notes

Lawyers for Mohamed Fayed today sought access to notes from an interview with Prince Charles in connection with the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, which they suggested police had failed to disclose.

I have to agree with Jo that it seems reasonable to grant the inquiry papers to both sides of the inquest. First of all, the inquiry was done for the purpose of assisting the inquest. The lawyers as well as the coroner should have all-access to the inquiry papers, not only the published report.
I am no more a supporter of Fayed's claims than anyone else here. However, since the whole purpose of the inquiry was to help the inquest, it would make little sense to deny access to the papers to any side of the argument.

Trevor Rees-Jones can't say it's not true because as he said, he doesn't remember anything. Don't know what you think about that but if there weren't paparazzi behind the car and Henri Paul wasn't drunk then we could think of other possibilities. (And I think it's way more plausible than any conspiration theories)
A meeting at that time? Forgive my not recalling precisely, but it was something like 11-1130pm Paris time when they left the Ritz the final time wasn't it? I'm sure they just wanted to get the paparazzi off their tail. The whole thing was so stupid on their part. Why didn't they just stay the night at the Ritz? Locked up safely and cozily in their luxury suite, no photographers, no gawkers, no tragedy.

Well it was said that he had a meeting with some people related to firearm traffic, but I don't know what to believe about that ...
Yes, according to Mohamed Al Fayed, his son had confirmed him on the phone that they would stay at the Ritz for the night. Although Dodi had an hesitating personality, he changed his plans every 2 seconds. He wasn't used to the paparazzi attention either. I think he panicked with the whole situation and took some risks that would lead him and Diana to their death.

Leaving the ambulance out of it, who owned the cars? Mohamed Al Fayed. Who employed the drivers? Mohamed Al Fayed. Who employed the "security"? Mohamed Al Fayed. Who owns the Ritz Hotel? Mohamed Al Fayed. Who was responsible for approving the plans and the change of plans? Mohamed Al Fayed.

Pretty simple really. No smoking guns leading to mysterious secret agents or the Duke of Edinburgh here I'm afraid; instead the culpability for all (dis)arrangements can be laid squarely on Mr Al Fayed himself. Is it any wonder he is so determined to point the finger elsewhere?

I thought the car belonged to a hire company called Etoile Limousines, not to Mr Al Fayed.

The owner of Etoiles Limousine is Mr Musa (who has lost his marbles by the way. He wanted to put the wrecked car in a museum or sell it ... ). He rented the car to Mohamed Al Fayed. It was bought second-hand in 1996, which raised some doubts on the reliability of the security of the car.

Still, the responsibility for the car is traceable to al-Fayed because the lease must have been in possession by his hotel, right?
What on earth was his reasoning for approving the plan to send Diana and Dodi back to Dodi's apartment? the paparazzi were determined to follow them anywhere, so it would have been highly advisable to let them stay safely at the Ritz. The whole thing was so insane.

I don't think he approved this decision. Dodi took the risk of going to the apartment. I remember hearing Al-Fayed saying he had had his son on the phone and he had convinced him of staying at the Ritz, but apparently Dodi decided otherwise ...

No, I could never understand why they didn't stay put. Equally, why not just come out, smile and wave and let them take a few snaps? There is nothing so terrible about being photographed, and they didn't seem to mind earlier. Two safe and simple ways of dealing with the situation.
