A documentary film, titled “Unlawful Killing,” by producer Keith Allen that has been suppressed since its initial release at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2011, is now getting wide circulation via the internet, and is going to stir up new controversy around the role of the British Crown and MI6 in the murder of Princess Diana.
While reviewing longstanding evidence about the Aug. 31, 1997 Paris crash, the documentary, which was supported by Mohammed Al Fayed, breaks new ground by focusing on the vicious coverup during the Royal Inquest into the crash. The film focuses heavily on the role of Prince Philip in ordering Diana’s murder, and prominently features the quote, made infamous by Executive Intelligence Review, of Prince Philip declaring that he hopes to be reincarnated as a deadly virus so he can contribute to population reduction.
A ten-minute segment of the film focused on Prince Philip’s Nazi connections, which were also highlighted in the EIR 1997 “Coming Fall of the House of Windsor” report. The film detailed Philip’s education at a Nazi sponsored private school, and the fact of two of his sisters having married SS officers. The film showed a photograph of a young Philip marching in a funeral parade for a prominent Nazi Party leader. The film’s producer Keith Allen had a “mole” inside the press gallery throughout the Royal Inquest and clearly demonstrates that there was a total media coverup of the actual proceedings, in which a number of key Crown witnesses were forced under cross-examination to admit that there has been a withholding of key evidence.
One crucial piece of evidence that was suppressed from the official Royal Coroner’s Inquest was an October 1993 letter, written by Princess Diana to a close friend, that here husband was plotting to have her killed in an automobile accident caused by “brake failure” or some other tampering. The letter, in Diana’s original handwriting was shown on the screen several times throughout the film and a number of celebrities and close Diana friends were interviewed, corroborating that she feared for her life from both Prince Charles and Prince Philip.
At one point, when she began seeing Dodi Fayed, Diana received a personal threatening call from Prince Philip. She was also threatened by several government ministers as her activism in support of a ban on landmines was gaining worldwide attention and had the public backing of then-U.S. President Bill Clinton. The documentary broke new ground in reporting that a detailed analysis of the death scene in the tunnel showed that the paparazzi had not been involved in the motorcycle and white Fiat crash, raising the suspicion that it was skilled MI6 agents who actually engineered the vehicular attack, also using a blinding light that was, according to several eyewitnesses, flashed seconds before the crash.
The Royal Inquest did find that Diana, Dodi and Henri Paul’s deaths were an “unlawful killing”—i.e. not an accident—and that the blood tests on Henri Paul were so contradictory that they could not be the basis for concluding that he was, as the cover-story claimed, drunk. (In one telling anecdote from the Royal Inquest, the first search of Paul’s Paris apartment did not find large quantities of alcohol, but a second police search days later came up with a vast supply of all sorts of booze, implying that evidence was planted in support of the “drunk driver” coverup.)
There are still pending legal actions in both Britain and France brought by Mohammed Al Fayed. He was prominently featured in the documentary, asserting his continued strong belief that Prince Philip ordered Diana’s assassination. The film has only belatedly begun to be widely circulated, after three years of suppression in many parts of the English-speaking world, so the impact can be expected to increase in the coming weeks ahead.
