Did top secret `spy hit squad` plot Princess Diana’s assassination?
London – Princess Diana’s death in the 1997 Paris car crash was planned and carried out by a top secret `spy hit squad`, known by the codename UK/N, it has been revealed.
Barrister Michael Mansfield QC made the revelation at Diana’s inquest, the Daily Star reported.
Mansfield, 72, claimed that the hit squad included photographers, drivers, former servicemen, and members of the SAS.
Mansfield alleged that one paparazzo, who routinely followed the Princess of Wales, was a member of UK/N, a small corps of part-time MI6 agents who provide miscellaneous services to MI6, such as surveillance.
Mansfield asserted that the squad believed Pont D’Alma tunnel would be a perfect location for an assassination bid, as it would reduce the possibility of witnesses seeing the “accident”, and the concrete barriers would ensure death or serious injury in a high-speed crash.
