Diana Bodyguard Remembering More

February 28, 1998

LONDON (AP) _ The bodyguard who survived the accident that killed Princess Diana said Saturday that he remembers more about the incident and will meet again with the French judge heading the investigation.

Trevor Rees-Jones said he recalled more details after a series of sessions with a psychiatrist. But he did not disclose any new information in a statement issued through his lawyers.

Diana, her friend Dodi Fayed and the driver were killed in the crash in Paris. Rees-Jones is employed by Harrods, which is owned by Fayed’s father.

``I remember very little of the final journey on August 31. In my interviews with the psychiatrist, I have remembered a little more,″ Jones’ statement said.

The statement followed news that the Daily Mirror newspaper plans to publish an interview with Rees-Jones on Monday.

The bodyguard’s statement said he had not been paid for the interview or for any other contact with the media.

He said he was concerned about reports that he did not conduct himself professionally on the night of the crash and was not properly trained.

``These allegations are wholly spurious and I will, as and when I think it appropriate to do so, make public comment,″ the statement said. ``This will be done solely through my (lawyers) and in the media and on the terms of my choosing.″
