Gaza, ALRAY - The Palestinian Government in the Gaza Strip demanded to reveal the results of the investigation regarding the death of the Palestinian President Yasser Arafat. It also demanded the international law to look forward to this issue and to bring the killers into justice, the government spokeswoman Isra al-Modallal said on Tuesday.
She added that the Palestinian government believes that Israeli occupation is behind the killing of Arafat.
Al-Modallal denounced the international silence regarding the death of Arafat wondering how come he was killed in 2004 while the investigations only took place in 2013,” Why all this recklessness ?” she asked; the Palestinian people waited for a long time to know the truth about what happened to their president .
Al-Modallal sent a message of support to Arafat’s widow as she was the only person who is seeking for the truth of the death of her husband.
Suha Arafat said on Wednesday, after receiving the results of Swiss forensic tests on her husband's corpse, that the Palestinian President Yasser Arafat was poisoned to death in 2004 with radioactive polonium.
A team of experts, including from Lausanne University Hospital's Institute of Radiation Physics, opened Arafat's grave in the West Bank city of Ramallah last November, and took samples from his body to seek evidence of alleged poisoning.
