I've long belonged the tinfoil brigade strongly suspecting that Diana PoW was murdered by SIS agents. But that suspicion is now becoming almost mainstream, as this longish, and well-worth reading, piece in the Mail on Sunday shows. The writer, Sue Reid, focuses on two SIS officers, X and Y, as mentioned in the anonymous note sent to the Mail, which it passed it on to the Met Police.
"If you are brave enough, dig deeper to learn about X and Y," says the note. "Both MI6. Both were involved at the highest level in the murder of the Princess." It is signed off with the words: "Good Luck."
The address at the top of the piece of paper is simply 'Langley', the headquarters of the CIA, America's intelligence agency, in Virginia, USA.
The note may or may not be genuine, but we do know from Richard Tomlinson's affidavit that X and Y would be Messrs Spearman and Langman. The Mail links them to the two so-far unidentified men seen on CCTV at the Ritz that evening. And Sir John Stevens is reportedly going to interview MI6 officers about whether Henri Paul was on the payroll. I reckon John Stevens is a brave man, what with this and his enquiry into the activities of the MoD's Force Research Unit (FRU) in N. Ireland in the 80s. But somehow I suspect both enquiries will be able to reach so far and no further, until perhaps the lead actors have passed away from the scene.
