Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,
in recent days, a number of images been circulated in the press showing falsified bank statements prepared for the BBC journalist Martin Bashir.
By an extraordinary co-incidence, a corresponding letter from Princess Diana has purportedly been 'found' by the BBC that suggests Princess Diana was fullyaware the bank statements were falsified, and yet had no bearing on her willingness to be interviewed by Mr. Bashir.
Given the falsified bank statements are in the public domain, please could you also disclose;
1) a scan of the purported letter from Princess Diana to the BBC acknowledging & disregarding the existence of the BBC journalist's falsified bank statements. I would be particularly keen to see the handwriting & signature.
2) identify the address/recipient, and state the date that letter was received by the BBC
3) confirm or deny that you consider the letter is genuine and not also a creative fraud, and on what basis you take that view
