A Damaged Man Has the Last Word on Diana

受伤保缥对戴安娜作结语

[1]He was the silent of the storm that erupted after the violent death of Diana, Princess of Wales. The only survivor of the horrific crash in Paris, Trevor Rees-Jones would surely answer all the puzzling questions about that night in 1997. But apart from one tabloid interview that he instantly regretted, the 31-year-old bodyguard remained as enigmatic as the last fateful seconds locked irretrievably inside his head.

[2] The former paratrooper had suffered serious chest and head injuries, his face so badly disfigured that it was sewn back together after more than 20 metal splinters were removed. What hurt more, it seems, were the accusations about his role and the wild conspiracy theories made by his former employer, Mohamed al-Fayed, father of the deceased Dodi.

[3] Rees-Jones has now decided to break his silence by writing a book, The bodyguard's Story, which gives his unalloyed account of the events leading up to the final "shambles". It describes the bizarre Fayed menage. Crates of bottled water were taken to the family villa in St Tropez--the equivalent of coals to Newcastle. Fayed's private Gulfstream jet transported five sacks of sand to Finland to make a beach for the Fayed children, only to be swept away.

[4] Although adamant that he is not cashing in on Diana's death, Rees-Jones is submitting to a media hoopla because he is hard up. Denied compensation in France, facing legal bills and without long-term provision after his acrimonious parting from Fayed, the money has provided him with a two-bedroom house in Oswestry in Shropshire and some security.

[5] It has bought him no peace of mind. In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, he confesses he is plagued by the thought that Diana, Dodi and driver Henri Paul died _on my shift_ and that he would gladly have sacrificed his own life to save theirs. "If I could have died and those three survived, I could have done it,"_he says.

[6] Rees-Jones was one of 40 security men_ 16-stone nannies hired to guard the Fayed family and pander to their whims. A former squaddie with the Parachute Regiment in Northern Ireland, he was a useful rugby player whose tough looks and 6ft 2in frame belied a mild and stoical nature. 在威尔士王妃戴安娜遇难去世后的风暴里,特雷弗·里斯-琼斯是平静的风眼。他是那次恐怖的巴黎撞车事件的唯一幸存者,想必可以回答有关1997年那个夜晚的所有疑问。但是他只接受了一次小报的采访,事后很快就后悔了,除此之外,这位31岁的保镖一直是个谜,就像那灾难的最后几秒钟被锁在他大脑里无法取出一样。

这位前伞兵的胸部和头部受到了严重的伤害,脸部严重变形,以至于在取出20多块金属碎片以后才重新缝合在一起。但是对他伤害更大的,看来还是他的前雇主,死者多迪之父穆罕默德·阿-法耶德对他所起作用的谴责和离奇的阴谋说法。

现在里斯-琼斯已决定写一本书来打破自己的沉默,书名叫《保缥的故事》,书中对最终导致汽车撞成“一堆废铁”的各个事件进行了原原本本的叙述。它描述了古怪的法耶德家族。成箱的瓶装水被运到他们在圣特罗佩兹的家庭别墅,这就像将煤运到纽卡斯尔一样多余。法耶德的湾流型私人喷气飞机将五袋沙子运到芬兰以为他家的孩子们造一片沙滩,结果只是沙子被海水冲走。虽然里斯-琼斯坚称他并非利用戴安娜之死来挣钱,实际他确是由于生活日益拮据而屈服于媒体的纠缠。他在法国得不到赔偿,还要面对诉讼费的账单,而在闹翻了离开法
