The interview was filmed, but I do not know if it is for a documentary or the book that is being written.
My guess is it is going to be used for both.
The other question is whether this is going to be a documentary released at the same time as the book.
That would seem unlikely as the book has a definitive release date, and would seemingly take longer to get the documentary ready. In any event, the interview, or at least the subject of the interview tells the rest of the world what direction the book is going to take.
The interviewee who is very much in the very latter stages of life very much supports the theory that his son and A list girlfriend were murdered.
He spent a great deal of money at the time proving his theory and it is very much a valid theory.
He explains it every well and has documents to support his theory.
There doesn’t seem to be any point in interviewing him if you are also not going to subscribe to the theory yourself in writing the book.
If so, there will be no building any bridges back ever again.
How can you when you would be accusing someone of murder who is on the other side of that bridge.
Poisonous feud between Mohamed Al Fayed’s children casts shadow over his twilight years: His son told a judge his sister plotted to have him beaten up while she claims her sibling is a drug abuser who has sullied the family name
Somewhere within the rambling confines of Barrow Green Court in Surrey, an era is drawing to a close. Mohamed Al Fayed, the 92-year-old owner of the Ritz Hotel in Paris, former owner of Harrods department store and Fulham Football Club, and one of the most colourful figures in modern business history, is near the end of his life.
Despite a poverty-stricken childhood in the backstreets of Egyptian city Alexandria, Fayed has amassed a fortune of some £1.3 billion.
His children will inherit properties including the 17th Century Barrow Green Court, swanky apartment buildings that overlook Hyde Park, a Scottish castle and apartments in New York.
But the days when the ebullient Egyptian whooped it up on yachts and red carpets are long gone. These days, Fayed spends more time in the shadows of the private mausoleum he commissioned at Barrow Green Court.
There he can mourn his late son Dodi, former boyfriend of the late Princess Diana, who died alongside her in a car crash in Paris in 1997.
And now the fighting has spilled into the open with a series of poisonous claims and counter-claims in the High Court. At the heart of the dispute sit Fayed’s glamorous daughter, Camilla, 36, and Omar, 33, the youngest of his five children.
Omar is claiming £100,000 in damages for an assault he alleges was orchestrated by Camilla and her husband, the Syrian businessman Mohamad Esreb – claims they have denied.
For her part, Camilla has told the court that her brother is a heavy user of illegal drugs whose louche and irresponsible behaviour is an embarrassment to the family – allegations he rejects.
What no one doubts is that the dispute would not look out of place in the hit TV drama Succession, in which the dysfunctional family of an ailing media mogul jostle for control of the family business. Succession is very much to the point.
Today, Omar wants to fight back against his sister’s wounding allegations. He is not a drug-user, he says, merely the victim in the sort of sibling power struggle so often seen when the head of a family nears the end.- Source
