Das Neue, No. 41

Lady Diana was killed by a team of specialists from British MI5.

WIESBADEN, Oct. 9-- Lady Diana was killed by a team of specialists from British MI5, the cover story in issue No. 41, of the German illustrated weekly {Das Neue } hinted. The core of the story is an exclusive interview with "Glyn Jones", a former member of the elite military unit that observed Diana from 1985 to 1989, on orders from MI5.

After introducing the theme with a hint that Martine Monteil , the head of the Paris police investigation team, is looking into the case as an assassination case, and that the MI-5 is a suspect, Das Neue asks Jones about his 1985-1989 mission. He relates that he was with the Royal Marines then, and was operating upon directives coming from MI5.

The job of his team "was not to spy on members of the Royal Family. Foreign agencies warned the MI5 at that time, that there was a threat to Diana. That is why she was surveilled ." "That implied: we would have had to kill her, if we were not able to prevent an abduction."

The main objective of the team was to protect the Royal House, the future King (Diana's son), and the Anglican Church. All of that was threatened by Diana's bad conduct, Jones said. When Das Neue asked whether the ‘drunken' driver, Henri Paul didn't play a role in the accident, Jones said: "Yes, in the end, it was a reason. But why did this accident occur, in the first place? Why are the French police not able to identify those two men that stood on the bridge above the tunnel, who were firing shots at the car?" "Two shots were fired at the tires. So far, this has not been made public. They are trying to cover it up." Jones said that traces of the shots would not necessarily be found, because "this depends on the angle at which the bullet hits--this can hardly be checked, if the tire is ripped to pieces. This, at least, is how it is done in anti-terror measures in Northern Ireland, when any outside implication is to be covered up." Jones said that it is not French sloppiness which prevents a real investigation in Paris, but   rather implies that "the French secret service is collaborating with the British secret service. There are close contacts... [I]t would not be in the interest of the French government to let such things get out to the public." The interview was accompanied by a box, which explained how the sniper attack on Di's car could have occurred.

First of all, the British SAS is equipped with a special gun, the "Five-Seven" which is produced by the French firm, FN Herstal . This is an ultralight weapon, which works like a heavy gun, however, because its ammunition can cut through steel and bullet-proof vests, from 200 meters away.

The special bullets, which have a weight of only 2 grams each, leave no visible tracks in the target.

Weapons expert Bernard Sacrez explained to Das Neue that "with this weapon, you can slice the tires of a car as if you used a razor blade. No tracks of the shot can be located, because the two-gram bullet disassembles completely, afterwards."

Al Fayed's security team included 8 former SAS agents, by the way, the Das Neue report said. Dodi's bodyguard Alexander Wingfield was one of them, and he switched shift with Trevor Rees-Jones (the bodyguard that survived) that night. Glyn Jones said it looked like an orchestration, because the drivers also switched shifts that night.
