Arafat's Widow WANTED By Tunisian Authorities

Suha and Yasser enjoying their wealth.

From the Jerusalem Post: 'Tunisia issues arrest warrant for Arafat':

"Suha Arafat, widow of late PLO chairman Yasser Arafat, is wanted by officials in Tunisia for alleged corruption, AFP reported on Monday.

"Tunisian Justice Ministry spokesman Kadhem Zine al Abidine told the French news agency that a warrant was issued for the 48-year-old Arafat, who was a citizen of Tunisia, until her citizenship was stripped in 2007.

"The allegations go back to a 2006 business deal, when Suha Arafat had a fallout with former first lady of Tunisia over the establishment of an international school in Tunis, AFP quoted Tunisian newspapers as saying.

"In 2007, Suha was declared persona non grata in Tunisia and had her citizenship revoked, reportedly by presidential decree. Suha was reported to be living in Malta, at least several months a year, where she owns a home."

Read the rest here and wonder: if Arafat were alive today, would there be an Arab Spring resistance to his corrupt rule? Also read this to revive your memory about Suha's claims to Arafat's 'estate' upon his death.
