To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
Henri Paul (3 July 1956 – 31 August 1997) was the driver of the Mercedes S280 in which Princess Diana died on 31 August 1997. As Deputy Head of Security at the Hôtel Ritz Paris, Paul had been off-duty that evening but was called back to drive Diana and Fayed to their apartment. The car crashed at high speed in the Pont de l'Alma tunnel, with only bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones surviving.
There have been many conspiracy theories surrounding the car crash. However, British and French police investigations put the blame largely on Paul for being affected by alcohol and prescription drugs, and later driving recklessly.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
