On 4 November 2004, suspecting poisoning before the leader’s last breat, Dr Saeb Erekat claimed to call the US Consul General in Jerusalem to request the US government ask the Israeli government for an antidote. The French Defence Ministry carried out its own analysis on Arafat’s condition, French doctors carrying out toxicological analysis but finding nothing unusual. The latter drew a litre of Arafat’s urine for radiological testing, a test that measures Gamma activity only (Polonium 210 is an Alpha-emitting particle) but found nothing. On September 2010, during Fatah’s 6th conference, leaders decided to appoint Tawfik Tirawi as head of the Palestinian investigation into the death of Yasser Arafat, an investigation that alas made no breakthroughs. Arafat’s widow, Suha Arafat, unsatisfied with this explanations, decided to resort to other investigators and provided Al Jazeera with Arafat’s entire medical file and x-rays, as well as a gym bag containing the leader’s last personal belongings that accompanied him when he died in France. The files and gym bag are taken to a center in Switzerland, which then begins a rigorous scientific and forensic review of all material, concluding in 2012 that significant levels of radioactive Polonium 210 have been found in Arafat’s belongings. French authorities at first denied Suha Arafat that her husband’s medical samples, destroyed in 2008. Suha set off a campaign to get her husband’s body exhumed for testing and filed a criminal complaint with a French judge. Public figures, such as Mahmoud Abbas, raised the issue of Arafat’s death at several international meetings. Palestinian leaders even presented a plan to the Arab League to investigate what many believed to be a murder.
