Controversy over retired MI5 Agent who confesses to Princess Diana ‘murder’
John Hopkins is an 80-year-old retired MI5 agent and has made a series of controversial claims since being told he has weeks to live.
An article from YourNewsWire.com has said that since being released from a hospital in London on Wednesday, John has claimed to have been involved in 23 assassinations for the British intelligence agency between 1973 and 1999, including Princess Diana.
John worked for MI5 for 38 years as an operative and has claimed that he was used as a hitman to discreetly assassinate individuals considered a threat to the security of the UK.
The 80-year-old has said that during the period of June 1973 and December 1999 when he was involved in the assassinations “the MI5 operated with less external oversight”. John said he was part of a cell of seven operatives who carried out political assassinations on people such as politicians, activists, journalists and union leaders.
John claims to feel “ambivalent” about Princess Diana’s death but according to him she was placing the British crown at risk.
“She knew too many Royal secrets. She had a huge grudge and she was going to go public with all sorts of wild claims."
"I’d never killed a woman before, much less a princess, but I obeyed orders. I did it for Queen and country.”
John has also said that the Palace also took control of the media to “square their stories, make sure everybody was on the same page. It was a well run operation.”
“British journalists all answer to editors who answer to oligarchs who all want knighthoods from the crime family at Buckingham Palace. There is no free press in Britain,” said Mr. Hopkins.
“We got away with murder.”
The claims of John have gone viral with Royal fans around the world fearing the conspiracy theory may hold some truth.
Fact check website Snopes have denounced the claims of John Hopkins, however, millions of Diana fans have already shared the article online.
For years conspiracy theories have spread over the death of the beloved Princess.
