Lord Goldsmith moves to gag spy giving evidence in Diana case

The Attorney General, Lord
Goldsmith, has used a gagging order against former MI6 agent, Richard
Tomlinson, to stop him from giving evidence by video link to the Diana inquest.

It is the second time in
the past ten days Lord Goldsmith has become involved in a gagging order
controversy.

Like his attempt to silence
the
BBC over its report on the
cash-for-honours scandal, the order against Tomlinson is also surrounded by
secrecy.

A surprised senior lawyer
at the French bar, maitre Clotele Normand, who is acting for the government to
enforce the gagging order because Tomlinson now lives near Nice, said:

“I am astonished you
have learned of this. I am not authorised to answer your questions on the
matter. I cannot discuss how English law can be enforced in
France against Mr Tomlinson. My
instructions are that nothing can be publicly said on this matter”, said
the lawyer in
Paris.

    I never realised that the French were so co-operative.
    I wonder if they would be as co-operative if the British establishment asked them to help carry out an assassination.
    Just a thought.
