According to the Mirror, Scotland Yard has announced that it is investigating new evidence claiming that Diana was killed by the SAS. The SAS is the Special Air Service, part of the UK Special Forces. Scotland Yard said: "The Metropolitan Police Service is scoping information that has recently been received in relation to the deaths of Diana, Princess of Wales, and Dodi Fayed and assessing its relevance and credibility. The assessment will be carried out by officers from the Specialist Crime and Operations command."
The allegation emerged at the second court martial of Sergeant Danny Nightingale, who was found guilty of illegally possessing a gun and ammunition. It came in a letter to the elite unit's commanding officer by the parents-in-law of a special forces sniper, known only as Soldier N, who was Sgt. Nightingale's former housemate and a key witness for the prosecution.
The letter said Soldier N claimed the SAS "was behind Princess Diana's death."
The Ministry of Defense, the Royal Military Police, and the Service Prosecuting Authority (SPA) have known of the existence of the letter since September 2011. Only now has the allegation and the investigation been made public.
The Mirror reports that the letter was passed by SAS to the Service Prosecuting Authority prior to the start of Nightingale's trial. All references to the paramilitary force were removed by the SPA before it released the document to the court.
The letter says: "He [Soldier N] also told her [his wife] that it was the XXX who arranged Princess Diana's death and that has been covered up."
