London’s Metropolitan Police say there is “no credible evidence” to support the theory that the British military was involved in the death of Princess Diana in August 1997.
Scotland Yard had to study the reliability of information received in August 2013 that claimed the military was involved in an assassination.
Investigators have not confirmed the source of the information but the allegations are believed to have surfaced during a military trial.
Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley wrote: “Whilst there is a possibility that the alleged comments in relation to the SAS’s involvement in the death may have been made, there is no credible or relevant evidence to support a theory that such claims had any basis in fact.”
“Having reviewed the exercise and its findings, I am satisfied that there is no evidential basis upon which therefore to reopen any criminal homicide investigation or refer the matter back to the coroner.”
