Rightful Owner Wants Crashed Limousine Diana Back
The owner of the car in which Princess Diana crashed 25 years ago is demanding that the French authorities return the vehicle to him.
Jean-Francois Musa, the former owner of rental company Etoile Limousines, said the car is “legally” his own, according to British tabloid The Mirror.
The only problem is that the wreckage of the Mercedes-Benz S280 in 2022 is nowhere to be seen, according to Musa. “I do not know where the car is. I only know that it is legally mine, and of course, I want it back,” the 63-year-old told the newspaper. “He should have been returned long ago, but that has proved impossible so far.”
Wednesday it will be exactly 25 years ago that Princess Diana, together with her friend Dodi Fayed and driver Henri Paul, died in an accident in Paris. Only her bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones survived the crash in the tunnel Pont de l’Alma.
Musa says he will not be in the French capital on that day. “I’ll be outside Paris in another part of the country. It’s a sad day.”
