Excerpts – Paparazzi


The main value in discussing the paparazzi is to show that in common with Henri Paul, they were no more than convenient scapegoats. Also, since none of them attended court and few even gave affidavit evidence, the court couldn’t test their version of events.

This is particularly interesting since Scott Baker admitted during the Inquest proceedings, under pressure from the lawyers, that the French political machinery had prevented the paparazzi from attending court and you might wonder why, especially when it had also been admitted by the French policeman in charge of the ‘investigation’ – Jean-Claude Mules – that the decision to embalm Diana was taken at a diplomatic level.
