Al Fayed Receives Modest Payout In Princess Diana Case
In 2007, Al Fayed brought a case against the French state after a judge dismissed a challenge to the original inquest ruling which stated that the crash had been caused by the fact that Henri Paul was driving drunk. Al Fayed claim that the case had been slowed down by mistakes made by the judge in charge. This week the court ruled that court authorities were responsible for the problems had delayed that case several years and so Al Fayed is owed 5,000 euros compensation plus 3,000 euros in legal fees. It's a drop in the bucket for the billionaire department store owner but Al Fayed has said that he is delighted because the verdict shows that there has been a cover-up.
