The sniper who claims that the SAS shone a bright light into the eyes of Diana’s driver, causing the crash that killed her has fled to Thailand in fear of his life. The unidentified soldier, known only as Soldier N left the UK before he could be examined after the police re-opened the investigation into her death.

While police now probe claims that members of the army helped to cause the 1997 crash Soldier N is lying low in South East Asia. It was previously though the man was hiding in an ex-pat community in Dubai but anonymous military sources claimed it would be too hostile and too expensive for him and stated that he would not be welcome in the middle east where there is a large community of former SAS personnel who use Dubai and other locations as a base for their work.

It is thought that soldier N might choose Thailand for the low cost of living and lenient rules that would not prevent him travelling to the country despite having a criminal record for handling firearms that would prevent him from travelling to other countries.

Mohamed Al-Fayed 84, the former owner of Harrods and the father of Dodi who was in the car with Diana and died instantly during the crash said that he was angry that Soldier N was not prevented from leaving the country before Scotland Yard could examine evidiana 2dence that was handed over to them from the Military Police.

Soldier N was due to meet Scotland Yard’s DCI Philip Easton but fled when he could not handle the mounting pressure.

Scotland Yard reportedly decided to review the case 16 years after Diana’s death in a Paris underpass after interviewing the woman who insists that her former husband’s claims are true.

The woman believes that a white car and motorbike were involved in the plot that enlisted the services of the SAS, who were soldier N’s former SAS colleagues. When questioned as to why she had not reported this theory sooner the woman said that she had been sworn to secrecy. The conversation took place in 2011 but since then she and her husband have separated.

After the claims were maid an investigation began that will also look into allegations from a source in the UK that GCHG was remotely tapping Diana and Dodi up until the moment of the crash. A source told a national newspaper that Diana was a prime intelligence target and GCHQ operatives would have wanted and had the capacity to listen to conversations in the car as it sped away from the Ritz in Paris.
