- Sherman H. Skolnick, veteran investigative
journalist based in Chicago, was Jeff's guest on Friday, May 22, 1998.

his two hour appearance, Mr. Skolnick disclosed an alleged stolen secret
document taken from British intelligence and provided to British associates
of Mr. Skolnick by Mohammed al-Fayed, father of Dodi.
- We cannot authenticate this document
but it is of great interest to those concerned with the apparent murder
of Diana, Princess of Wales and Dodi Al Fayed. The document reads as follows.

- Excerpt from a 5-14-98 London Mirror
story by Oonagh Blackman...
- This is one of the five secret papers
put up as proof that Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed were murdered. It is
part of the amazing dosier offered for 10 million (Pound Sterling...about
$16 million dollars) to Dodi's father, Harrod's owner Mohammed Al Fayed,
and now obtained by the Mirror. Mr. Fayed believes the Diana papers, said
to originate from the US Central Intelligence Agency, back his conviction
that the British establishment masterminded a conspiracy against his son
and the Princess. But despite repeated requests, the CIA has refused to
say whether the documents are genuine. Mr. Al Fayed said yesterday, "I
intend to establish the truth behind the tragic events in Paris last August."
"We are still waiting for the CIA to pronounce on the authenticity
of the documents." One file headed "Foreign Intelligence Information
Report" contains comments attributed to the Duke Of Edinburgh and
the Prime Minister about the 'disastrous' relationship between Dodi and
Diana. It highlights a request from the security service MI6 for a "permanent
solution to the Dodi problem" and details plans to sabotage an Al
Fayed Mercedes - "stolen and returned with electronics missing."
The report is dated June 17, 1997, just over three weeks before Diana and
Dodi began their fateful romance aboard a yacht in the Mediterranean. MI6
Director David Spedding is named in one telex and a squad from the Israeli
secret service Mossad, referred to as the "K-Team", appears in
another. The Diana Papers are littered with codes and abbreviations.
- They were seized in an Amsterdam hotel
room three weeks ago when Mr. Al Fayed's security chief, backed by two
FBI agents, met a middleman who was demanding 10 million (Pound Sterling)
for them. The intermediary, 67 year old Oswald LeWinter, was arrested and
is now in solitary confinement in a Vienna police cell.
