LONDON: Mohamed Al Fayed’s bid to compel the Queen and Prince Philip to give evidence at the inquest into the death of Princess Diana has failed, reports BBC. The Harrods owner’s legal team argued that the Royal couple had information which would shed light on the death.
He has accused the Royal family of having the princess murdered because he said they disapproved of her relationship with his son, Dodi. The inquest itself has finished calling witnesses after five and a half months. Al Fayed’s lawyers had sought a judicial review of a decision earlier this month that Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh should not be called to the hearing.-SANA
