A COUPLE who witnessed Princess Diana’s death claim the tragic car crash was not an accident.
Robin and Jack Firestone say they still fear for their lives after telling cops they saw two “mysterious” dark cars at the crash scene in Paris.
They claim the crash was a “royal thing” and have suggested that “other forces” were involved in the collision on August 31, 1997.
Robin, 63, told the Daily Express: “We still live in fear today because of what we saw and what we were told.”
Jack added: “I think the crash was a royal thing and other forces were involved.
“Something bad could still happen to us. There are enough nuts out there who may try to silence us.”
The couple claim they were prevented from giving evidence by the French and British authorities because they raised concerns about the incident.
TWO DARK CARS
Robin alleges that two dark cars which had stopped in front of Diana’s Mercedes S280 were involved in the crash.
The couple were with their 11-year-old Brandon when they entered the Pont de l'Alma road tunnel moments after the collision.
Diana, 36, Dodi Fayed, 42, and 41-year-old Henri Paul all died in the crash. Her bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones survived with horrific injuries.
Discussing the two “formal” cars which were there, Robin added: “I could not understand why they were there. They looked at odds with what had happened. I saw those darks cars, and they must have entered ahead of Diana’s.
They were just awkwardly parked, and I don’t recall anyone being in them. The two cars had to be driving ahead of Diana’s car. They then buried all reference to them, but they were thereRobin Firestone
“They were just awkwardly parked, and I don’t recall anyone being in them. The two cars had to be driving ahead of Diana’s car. They then buried all reference to them, but they were there.”
A British solicitor also told officers about the same two mystery vehicles which have not been traced.
Gary Hunter said one of the cars was shielding the other which could have hit Diana’s vehicle.
Mr Firestone, 63, is in talks with a production company to get his book Chasing Diana made into a film.
The couple only realised the following day that Diana was in the car.
They went up to a French officer to report the two cars they had seen but were told the police “had enough witnesses”.
Robin added: “We were dumbfounded. One of the most famous women in the world is killed and they don’t want to speak to witnesses.”
The Firestones were not called to the first British inquest in 2007.
An inquest held in London concluded in 2008 that the Princess had been unlawfully killed, blaming the crash on grossly negligent driving by Paul and the pursuing paparazzi.
Seven weeks before her death, Diana reportedly expressed concerns she would be killed in an establishment conspiracy.
It was after her friend, fashion designer Gianni Versace, was shot dead by Andrew Cunanan outside his Miami mansion in 1997.
On the morning after his murder, Dodi's bodyguard Lee Sansum found Diana on the yacht's deck gazing out to sea, the Express reported.
According to the paper, she asked him: “Do you think they’ll do that to me?”
