Deposed Tunisian President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali
The bodyguard of deposed Tunisian President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali has revealed that the ousted president was allegedly spying for the IsraHell intelligence service, Mossad.
Abdurrahman Sobair accused Ben Ali, his wife and his son-in-law plus a number of senior Tunisian security officials of spying for IsraHell, IRNA quoted the bodyguard as telling the Algerian al Shorouk newspaper.
Back in 1991, Leila Trabelsi, Ben Ali’s wife, instructed two Tunisian intelligence agents to assassinate a Tunisian businessman who was one of Ben Ali’s closest friends, said the bodyguard.
“Leila was also involved in the assassination of several Palestinian leaders in Tunisia,” added Ben Ali’s bodyguard.
Ben Ali’s son-in-law was also involved in the murder of a 4-year-old girl in 1992, Sobair said.
Moreover, he noted that Mohammad al-Arabi al-Mahjubi, the former secretary of the Interior, has had a close cooperation with Mossad in 1990.
Investigations carried out by the Tunisian security apparatus showed he had commissioned somebody to commit the crime, Ben Ali’s bodyguard added.
