|Al Fayed Goes to French Court over ex-Met Chief's Diana Evidence|
- Harrods boss's allegations of an establishment cover-up ensnare Condon
MOHAMMED AL FAYED has opened up a new front in his campaign to show his son Dodi and Pricesss Diana were murdered.
The official inquest into the deaths is to re-start in London in May, but meanwhile Harrods boss Al Fayed is taking legal action in Paris against former police chief Lord Condon, who gave evidence to the initial, 1997, French inquiry.
Al Fayed claims Condon, a former commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, failed to tell the French inquiry of Diana’s long-held fears that she was the target of an assassination plot.
Condon's alleged withholding of evidence is an example of what Al Fayed sees as an establishment cover-up of the Pairs car-crash, which killed the two lovers.
"I have tirelessly fought for truth and justice against an army of dark forces who do not want the truth to become public," Al Fayed has said.
Condon says he answered all requests for information.
The princess had told a number of close friends of her fears, including butler Paul Burrell and Al Fayed himself.
It is likely Diana's statements will form the centrepiece of the case to be made by Al Fayed’s lawyers at the main inquest.
