Three Photographers Fined One Euro For Taking Photos of Diana, Dodi Al-Fayed on Night of Fatal Crash

Three photographers have been fined one Euro for taking photographs of Dodi Al-Fayed and Princess Diana on the night of their fatal automobile crash. They, along with six other photographers, had originally been charged with manslaughter in 2002, but those charges were dropped. Later, the three were charged with breach of privacy. Lower courts had acquitted them, but Mohammed Al-Fayed, the father of Dodi Al-Fayed, had appealed to the Cour de Cassation, which reversed the acquittals. Read more here and here.
