    Found: The mystery white Fiat Uno driver in Diana death crash

    London news 12/23/06

    The father of a man who was driving a white Fiat Uno in Paris the night Princess Diana was killed has sensationally admitted his son had the car painted red just hours after the fatal crash and revealed his suspicions that his son was involved.

    Speaking publicly for the first time, Le Van admits he was driving his car in Paris on the night Diana was killed and, in an exclusive interview, his father Francois has provided the most compelling evidence yet that his son was involved in the crash and took part in a cover-up after fleeing the scene.

    He recalls Le Van, then 22, returning home from his job as a night-time security guard in a frightened and bewildered state but unwilling to tell his father what was troubling him.

    Instead, he had a whispered conversation with his brother Dung, who worked as a mechanic, which culminated in the brothers rushing off in the middle of the night to radically alter the appearance of Le Van's 15-year-old car.

    During the next two hours, and with no one else around, the brothers resprayed the white Fiat a bright red.

    Breaking a nine-year silence, Francois said: "I do not want to believe that Le Van was in the tunnel that night but I know as a father that he has said things which just do not add up.


    Tellingly, he also admitted to detectives that he had his muzzled rottweiler in the rear of his car - eyewitnesses to the devastation in the tunnel described the Fiat Uno as having a large dog wearing a muzzle or bandana in the back.


    But it is understood Lord Stevens has sent a 5,000-page report to Dame Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, the judge who will preside over the inquest, and that it includes more information about the involvement of the Uno.

    His published report gives the names of dozens of witnesses and other parties.

    Bizarrely, Le Van is the only person referred to but not named - Lord Stevens simply calls him "the second Fiat Uno driver".

    Good Girl Darki_Shadows! WOW! Now that's gonna make big news after just hearing that Henri's driving so drunk is what caused him to crash. I thought that was a pot of crock, personally.

    DS, do you read from the way this article is written that this kid was part of a conspiracy? Or do you think the kid just had an accident and painted the car so he wouldn't be charged by LE for negligent driving?

    It is very nice to see you. Thank-you reading the thread.
    I did read the way that the article was written.
    This part says alot......

    Speaking publicly for the first time, Le Van admits he was driving his car in Paris on the night Diana was killed and, in an exclusive interview, his father Francois has provided the most compelling evidence yet that his son was involved in the crash and took part in a cover-up after fleeing the scene.

    Lord Stevens;

    His published report gives the names of dozens of witnesses and other parties.

    Bizarrely, Le Van is the only person referred to but not named - Lord Stevens simply calls him "the second Fiat Uno driver".

    Asked why the report did not name Le Van, a Met spokeswoman said: "There is nothing sinister about it - it was just not considered relevant.

    Our focus was on the actual car."

    First off, I have NEVER heard of someone being named Dung....hopefully it doesn't mean the same thing in UK as it does in the states.....

    Also, if the car was 15 years old at the time of the accident, that would mean the car was made for the 1981 year, but the first year that Fiat Unos were made was in 1983.....?? Maybe he just misspoke?

    Either way, good find d_s!!! Thanks for posting this.

    Le Van, who now works as a Paris taxi driver, told The Mail on Sunday: "I just want the whole thing to go away. I am a father with children now and have had enough of this saga.

    "I don't want to say exactly what happened. It would cause too many complications," he said.

    "The police have been involved and so have many other powerful people. They have tried to get me to help them, but this is not my job.

    What a jerk! "not his job" to help the police and investigators find out what happened? I hope he's charged properly for what he did!

    Let me tell you girls that Mr Dung is gonna be dang well driven to decide to co-operate! LOL They have been looking for him for 9 years, and they're not going to let it slide.

    I did think this was kind of neat - from Father to Father, out of the love and concern for their sons, are going to end up getting this case solved.

    Nitey Nite Scandi


    PS: I just knew you had posted DS. I logged out and then thought, oh well, could just give it a quik-like check! YaYa

    Oh I think he is going to talk. How can anyone live with themselves knowing that such a beautiful lady and others were killed in an accident.

    Wouldn't you think the fact that he painted his car within hours shows he knew something about the occupants in the car. IMO

    "Not my job" isn't goiong to get him very far...especially with Dodie's dad on his heels.

    I have a lot of respect for Le Van's dad commenting that he felt something was wrong and the fact that his son was making statements...what did he think when his son's white car suddenly turned RED? Where have all of these people been for all this time and just how good was that investigation....Nope sorry Le Van - this isn't going to go away. Being a father NOW won't get you off of the hook.
