PRINCESS DIANA DEATH SPY IN DEAL WITH MI6
Did former spy Richard Tomlinson retract evidence at Diana Inquest as part of MI6 deal? Speculation mounts as charges against the whistleblower are dropped and Tomlinson is allowed back into Britain…
In a dramatic turn of events, former MI6 spy and whistleblower, Richard Tomlinson, who spent more than a decade on the run from MI6, has finally been allowed back into Britain.
MI6 has dropped all charges against its former employee, unfrozen royalties from his whistleblowing book and apologized for its unfair treatment of him. The move comes as speculation mounts that Tomlinson has done a deal with MI6 over what he knows about the spy firm’s involvement in Princess Diana’s death.
In 1999 Richard Tomlinson signed an affidavit stating that MI6 had formulated a plan to assassinate former Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic in a road traffic accident identical to the one which killed Princess Diana in August 1997.
He told the French Inquiry into Diana’s death that he believed MI6 was involved in the princess’s murder and that MI6 agents used a special forces-style ‘strobe gun’ to blind chauffeur Henri Paul moments before he crashed.
Tomlinson also blew the whistle on two ‘undeclared’ MI6 officers stationed in Paris on the night of the crash and disclosed that he had seen MI6 documents revealing Henri Paul as a part-time MI6 agent.
But in a stunning, last-minute U-turn at the Royal Inquest into Diana’s death last year, Tomlinson mysteriously retracted his claims and has more recently, during secret negotiations with MI6 officers in Spain, also agreed to keep shtum about his knowledge of MI6 operations and in particular about the death of Princess Diana.
In return, Tomlinson no longer faces the threat of prosecution and imprisonment.
Yeah, they got to him all right. His home was ransacked in (I think) 2006 by French intelligence agents acting on behalf of MI6. It was all over the UK news.
The French Riviera home of a New Zealander has been ransacked by the French secret service in a raid linked to the Princess Diana inquiry.
Richard Tomlinson, who was once a British spy, says he was targeted because he has evidence about how Diana died.
I don't think you can really blame Tomlinson for buying his freedom.
