The probe into the death of Princess Diana was ‘flawed’ by French police
The Former head of Royal protection at the time of Princess Diana’s death in Paris has attacked French investigators for failing to conclusively identify the driver of a white Fiat Uno involved in the crash.
Welshman Dai Davies has spent years combing through evidence related to the crash in the Pont de l’Alma tunnel 20 years ago and gives talks on the subject aboard cruise ships.
He said: “Before entering the tunnel the Mercedes Diana was in was involved in a collision with a white Fiat Uno, but the vital forensic and police work was not done to correctly identify the vehicle and driver.
“That is the big glaring failure in the whole investigation. I think the collision at the entrance to the tunnel was a total accident but I do think that key car should have been identified.”
French-Vietnamese bodybuilder Le Van Thanh owned a white Uno at the time of the crash and had the vehicle re-sprayed red soon after the crash.
He has consistently denied any involvement.
The inability of French police to identify the car and its owner has allowed conspiracy theories to flourish, said Mr Davies.

He is convinced that the Mercedes’ driver, Henri Paul, bears responsibility for the crash because he had been drinking and was speeding.
Tonight Channel 4 will air a controversial programme about Diana and show excerpts from video taped interviews she gave to her voice coach Peter Settelen.
Even now, 20 years after her death, Princess Diana’s legacy remains undiminished.
