Arafats Body Remains in Grave as Experts Take Samples

Yesterday, Tuesday Nov. 27 2012 – Late president Yasser Arafat’s grave was opened on at Al-Muqata’a headquarter in Ramallah, to take samples from his remains as part of the investigation into the reasons behind his death.

The Swiss, French and Russian forensic experts took samples from the remains of the late leader Yasser Arafat on Tuesday morning without having to remove the corpse from the grave, according to a statement by Tawfiq Tirawi, head of the official committee investigating Arafat’s death. The grave was re-closed later at the same day.

Tawfiq Tirawi, head of committee investigating the death of Yasser Arafat, said: “We will wait for the results of the investigation. We are not accusing anyone so far, but regardless of the result, we will continue looking for the truth” about how he died.

He added: “We are convinced Israel assassinated Arafat… and no matter what the results given by Russian, Swiss and French experts will be, the case will remain open. If it is proved that Arafat was poisoned, we will go to the international court,” referring to the ICC.

As a result, said Tirawi, reburial ceremonies have been canceled and officials from the PLO Executive Committee and other leaders will lay wreath at his grave after closing it.
