Kate runs away

Lady Butler-Sloss, the judge presiding over the inquest into the death of Diana, Princess of Wales ruled that a jury would not hear the inquest.

She said it would be hard to find jury members who would bring in the right verdict on the car crash that killed Diana in Paris in 1997 and on the investigations that followed.

In the ruling, Baroness Elizabeth Butler-Sloss said a jury would be able under British law to consider the evidence that have dogged the investigation into the Aug. 31, 1997, deaths of Diana and Dodi Fayed.

"In particular, the jury would be able to ask questions on allegations that a person, group or organization had been guilty of criminal activities in respect of the death of the princess or Dodi," she said.

The judge said a jury, "most of whom can’t even read, and would find it difficult to cope with the volume and detail of the evidence. The inquest will delve into technical matters on the crash, which would be well beyond anyone but myself."

"Over 30 witness are expected to testify and anyone who dares tell the truth will meet the same fate as Diana, " she said.

"It would undoubtedly be easier for a professional judge to cover up the details of this whole unfortunate matter," Butler-Sloss wrote.
