A 69-year-old retired lawyer, Stanlee Culbreath, who was one of the first witnesses to the tragic scene of the car crash that killed Princess Diana, has finally broken her silence two decades after her death.
The lawyer said he believed, “other forces” were behind Princess Diana’s death.
He said Princess Diana was still alive and talking when the incident happened.
According to him, a policeman was at the scene but made no move to help the princess. Though he pleaded with the policeman, he was nonchalant and told those who tried to help to get away from the car.
He said that the French emergency services had delayed in coming to her rescue, thereby reducing her chances of survival.
Culbreath also revealed that when emergency services finally arrived and she was released from the car, they passed one hospital but did not take her in there.
During the inquest, in 2007, it was disclosed that it took an hour and six minutes from the time Diana was taken from the wrecked car before she reached the hospital.
The inquest heard the princess may have lived had French medics not “squandered” crucial minutes treating her at the scene.
The Lawyer aslo revealed he was silent all this while because Diana’s sons, William and Harry, were still too young and he wanted to protect them.
He said, “I always thought it was suspicious, that other forces played a hand, but now, 20 years on, I question more than ever whether it was a genuine accident. I just think it is dubious.”
“If that’s the Princess, why did it take 20 minutes or so to get to her and, when she was finally released (from the car), why did they pass one hospital and take her to another?”
Culbreath recalled how, at the scene, although at that time unaware Diana was in the wrecked car, he commented to a friend, “Damn, a junkie on Main Street would get waited on quicker than this”.
