New evidence submitted to Scotland Yard regarding the death of Princess Diana

August 17, 2013

New evidence has been submitted to Scotland Yard regarding the death of Princess Diana, the Metropolitan police have confirmed.

Officers from the Metropolitan Police’s Specialist Crime and Operations Command are now assessing the new information to find out whether it’s credible.

The latest development is not a re-investigation and does not come under Operation Paget, although according to reports it could result in a reopening of the investigation into the Princess’ death in Paris in 1997.

n a statement, police said: ‘The Metropolitan Police Service is scoping information that has recently been received in relation to the deaths and assessing its relevance and credibility.

‘The assessment will be carried out by officers from the specialist crime and operations command.

‘This is not a re-investigation and does not come under Operation Paget.’

A spokesman for Scotland Yard said the force ‘are not prepared to discuss the matter further’.

Operation Paget was a Lord Stevens-led inquiry which looked into conspiracy theories surrounding the death of Princess Diana and Dodi Al Fayed, who died in a car crash in the French capital.

A main investigation into Diana’s death, led by Lord Justice Scott Baker, was conducted in 2007-8, and recorded a verdict of ‘unlawful killing, grossly negligent driving of the following vehicles and of the Mercedes’.
