MI6 Denies Killing Princess Diana
British intelligence denies killing Princess Di.
Sir Richard Dearlove, who was the director of special operations for the agency at the time of Diana’s Paris accident, testified at the inquest into the pair’s death that he also believes an operation by rogue agents would have been impossible.
Fayed’s father, Mohamed Al Fayed, has accused MI6 of engineering the death of his son and the princess at the behest of Prince Philip, the queen’s husband.
During his time as director of special operations, Dearlove said it was his responsibility to sign off on any operation that would otherwise be illegal, such as breaking into an office or receiving a stolen document. The operation would then have to be approved by the foreign secretary, a senior member of the government.
Ian Burnett, a lawyer for the coroner’s inquest, asked Dearlove whether he could confirm that “no authorization was sought in respect of any activities concerning Princess Diana.” “I can absolutely confirm that,” Dearlove said.
