Princess Diana’s death: The conspiracy theory ruled out

<p>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. </p> <p>Scotland Yard had to study the reliability of information received in August 2013 that claimed the military was involved in an assassination. </p> <p>Investigators have not confirmed the source of the information but the allegations are believed to have surfaced during a military trial. </p> <p>Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley wrote: “Whilst there is a possibility that the alleged comments in relation to the <span class="caps">SAS</span>’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.”</p> <p>“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.”</p>
