The US military may have played a role in the 1997 death of Princess Diana as she was campaigning for a worldwide ban on landmines, says the author of The Murder of Princess Diana.
Noel Botham told Press TV that Princess Diana, during her visit to the US in 1997, succeeded in persuading former US President Bill Clinton to vote in favor of a global ban on landmines at the Oslo Conference, which was due to take place on the 19th of September of that year.
However, the idea did not appeal to US military officials and they knew that Clinton "would not change his mind with Diana alive," said the author.
"There was enormous pressure from the military in America to get him (President Clinton) to stop that (the international treaty on a worldwide ban on landmines) and change his mind, enormous lobbying in the White House," Botham added.
"Of course, after her death, 19 days later, Bill Clinton went to Oslo and voted against a ban on landmines," he further explained.
The author of The Murder of Princess Diana also noted that in 1998, less than a year after Diana’s death, news media around the world tried to get the CIA, the FBI and the National Security Agency to release their papers on Diana’s death, which was to no avail.
"They (the CIA, the FBI and the National Security Agency) all came up with one answer; that they would keep back certain pages, 145 pages that would seriously jeopardize the security of the US," Botham went on to say.
Meanwhile, a movie called Unlawful Killing caused quite a stir in this year’s Cannes Film Festival in France.
It is the story of the deaths of Princess Diana, Dodi Fayed and their driver Henri Paul, and was described by its director Keith Allen as "inquest into the inquest of Princess Diana."
The film cannot be screened in the UK over ’national security issues.’
Britain’s Princess Diana died early Sunday August 31, 1997 at a Paris hospital after sustaining internal injuries in a high-speed car crash.
