Princess Diana death: Secret police file to be hidden for DECADES according to French rule
A 6,000 PAGE file on Princess Diana’s death consisting of the work of 30 police officers may not be made public for at least 75 years, according to one obscure French rule.
Princess Diana: Firefighter remembers last words
Diana died in a car crash at just 36-years-old, which left the nation in mourning. The file took three years to complete and is said to contain evidence into an investigation into her death in Paris back in 1997. The document contains evidence by French police put together during the 18-month investigation into her death.
Conspiracy theorists believe the file could hold evidence that the princess died under suspicious circumstances.
One source who had viewed part of the dossier, told the Daily Star: “It stinks of a cover up and conspiracy at the highest level, and is typical of French bureaucracy.”
According to the Daily Star, the existence of the document was only admitted after they spent months asking to view case files.
The publication were reportedly told the file would be kept from public view until at least 2082.

Authorities at the Palais de Justice in the French capital reportedly said they were using “article L. 213-2” of their “heritage code” to prohibit access.
The code states certain national archives should be shielded from public view for at least 75 years from their completion date.
A spokesman for the Palais de Justice denied the Daily Star access after weeks of requests to view it by stating: “The investigation file is placed in the archives of the Paris Court of Appeal.
“In application of article L213-2 of the heritage code, it cannot be consulted before the expiration of a period of 75 years.”

They added: “There is no online version of this archive.”
When they pressed French authorities to provide justification for using an obscure rule to lock away the Diana evidence file, a spokesman for the Palais de Justice reportedly told the publication to “Just keep sending letters.”
This comes after French authorities claimed they had lost the 6,000-page file back in 2007.
The authorities said it had been misplaced just weeks ahead of the £12.5million inquest into Diana’s death held in Britain that lasted from 2007 to 2008.

The document is said to contain thousands of pages detailing around 200 witnesses statements.
It is also said to contain the results of forensic tests on Diana’s drunk chauffeur Henri Paul, never-before-seen photos of the crash scene and of those who died, as well as crucial interviews with all those involved in the investigation.
Paris paparazzi Fabrice Chassery’s lawyer Jean-Louis Pelletier was also denied access to the documents.
Mr Pelletier asked to view the documents after Mr Chassery, who arrived at the crash scene on the night Diana died, was being pursued for manslaughter over the crash.
However, he was told it had disappeared.
Even a search of the court documents archives below the court building failed to uncover the hundreds of missing files.
He said in 2007: “When I went in to the court to ask to see the files, I was told they weren’t there.
“I know files go missing from time to time, but bearing in mind the size and importance of this particular one, it is extraordinary.”
According to the Daily Star, the existence of the document was only admitted after they spent months asking to view case files
It is believed partial photocopies of the dossier – said to be stacked “floor to ceiling” in a room devoted to the records in the Palais de Justice basement – were sent to Lord Stevens who headed the British investigation into Diana’s Paris crash.
The copies were never made public as original documents are often only admissible in court hearings.
A British lawyer working on the Diana inquest said in 2007: “It is scarcely believable that such crucial evidence could be lost just weeks before the inquest.”
