CLAIM: Strobe Light Was Shined Into Princess Diana's Chauffeur’s Eyes by British Special Forces Operatives

Relatives of a former soldier are making the claim that Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed were murdered by British Special Forces operatives, reports NyPo.

Further, the story matches up with a new book about the car crash by author Alan Power. "It was definitely not an accident, I can tell you that,”  Power told The Post in an exclusive interview.

Scotland Yard is looking at a British Special Air Service soldier’s claim that the unit was involved in “arranging” the crash — and that this had been “covered up,” according to a report yesterday in The Telegraph newspaper of London.

NyPo continues:
Scotland Yard’s new information also includes references to something known as Diana’s diary, Sky News reported.

The assassination allegations arose during the trial of Sgt. Danny Nightingale, an SAS sniper convicted of illegal weapons possession, the paper reported.

They were made by the estranged parents-in-law of “Soldier N,” an unidentified SAS soldier who was a key witness in Nightingale’s prosecution.

“Soldier N’s” estranged wife’s parents spurred Scotland Yard to action by writing to the SAS’s commanding officer, claiming that he’d told his wife that the unit had “arranged” the princess’ death — and a resulting coverup.

This is precisely what Power concludes in “The Princess Diana Conspiracy,” which hits shelves Aug. 29, two days before the 16th anniversary of Diana’s death.

The “hit” on the tragic princess was hatched by “The Increment,” a top secret unit of the British Secret Intelligence Service, or MI6, Power said he believes, based on his 10-year investigation into the British government’s own inquest evidence and his interviews with former SAS officers.

The Increment’s operatives — drawn from the SAS and the Royal Navy’s Special Boat Service — had someone ride ahead of Fayed’s and Diana’s Mercedes in a white Fiat, and to cause the car to careen into the tunnel’s cement sides and pillars by shining a strobe light into the chauffeur’s eyes, Power said.[...]

“All I can say, and I do say in my book, is that the nod giving authority to commit the attack had to come from someone with considerable power,” he said.

“I don’t believe it was [then Prime Minister] Tony Blair. He’d only been in office for 14 weeks. I’m no fan of Tony Blair, but I don’t believe he was responsible for this.

“But he knew about it after the fact, he knew it was murder, and he kept it quiet to protect the monarchy and protect MI6,” Power said.

The palace must have approved, he added.

“The only authority that the MI6 would accept other than from the prime minister would be from the royal palace,” he said.

Asked how such an explosive secret could remain unrevealed for so long, Power said that this is what MI6, and The Increment in particular, is all about.

“This was under the direction of MI6, and their team called The Increment, who are comprised of SAS and SBS operatives, who are sworn to secrecy, and who have to swear that they are prepared to be ethically flexible before they can join the team,” he said.

Additional evidence points to a high-level hit plot, Power says[...]

“The assassins — in the white Fiat — had gone, and there were no other bikes there,” he said.

“That was part of the plot,” Power said. “Attack the car, get away, and have the paparazzi come just behind and give the impression that they were responsible.”

As for the Fiat, the official word is that it has never been found.

But it has, Power argues.

“It was found by Dodi’s father’s investigators a few months later. The taillight had been replaced and repaired from where it had been rear-ended by the Mercedes,” he said.

The original taillight, he said, was recovered smashed among the debris of the crash, he said.

The Fiat was owned by James Andanson, a paparazzo who has been investigated, inconclusively, for other murders, Power said.

“He was known to be very keen on Diana,” Power said. “He had followed her all over Saint- Tropez the prior summer.

“But 23 months later [after the crash], he was found shot dead with two bullet holes in his head” in Milau, Power said.

“He was in his car, and the car had been incinerated. His body itself had been cremated to almost total ash.

“They say he committed suicide, but the car keys were never found.”

Andanson would have had to shoot himself in the head while setting his own car on fire — not a likely story, Power points out[..]

Asked what the motive to murder Diana could have been, Power said there were several.

“The motive was the fact that she was about to marry Dodi Fayed, and she was also pregnant,” both embarrassments to the royal family, he said.

But more important was what she “had” on her former husband.

“She was intending to destroy Charles Windsor by releasing embarrassing information about his sexual peccadillos,” Power alleged. He plans to reveal those secrets in his book.

The author said he had no idea it would hit print just as Scotland Yard was probing identical allegations as he is raising himself.


  1. Probably true. Ted, admit it...Nothing's shocking.

  2. I wonder if this is a to push to remove Charles from succession and replace him with William.

    1. I thought Charles was out of succession ages ago.

    2. not publicly anyway. this maybe an attempt to force his hand.

  3. No-one is above the Law in Britain. If any secret agents were involved in murdering people, by Law they would have to be charged and investigated, and tried.

    The Police have stated this is not a re-investigation, but a new investigation into murder, currently at the assessment stage. Therefore the Police are not bound by the previous investigations and inquests.

    The Police received the information and the request to investigate from the Ministry of Defence, a Government Department, and it is also in relation to two persons tried by court martial for illegal possession of weapons and ammunition.

    One of these persons was tried but then acquitted as if above the Law. However, this decision was later reviewed and he was re-tried and convicted, because in Britain NO-ONE is above the Law.
