Two senior Swiss forensic experts are already in the West Bank to discuss plans for the exhumation, which is complicated on a technical, legal and political level. A French court in August opened a murder inquiry into Arafat's death after a Swiss institute said it had discovered high levels of radioactive polonium on the Palestinian leader's clothing, which was supplied by his widow, Suha.
Now who benefited from Arafat death ? Israel.
I wonder why his widow requested that there be no autopsy?
he does live quite well these days with the money he spirited away from Palestinian relief organizations doesn't she... hmm.

Well if you watch the documentary, you see his wife explain's why he never had a autopsy, she says she was so broken at the time over his death it never crossed her mind, as there had been over 50 of the worlds top doctors helping him, and all the test's at the time showed nothing, it was only when the Alexander Litvinenko case came about, she started to ask questions.edit on 7-11-2012 by TheMaverick because: Grammer

Does anyone know if a standard autopsy would have even shown these radioactive particles?
However, when autopsy is performed, all tissues are sampled and saved forever. At the hospital I worked at they had blocks (of histologcically preserved) tissues dating back to the 1930s. Pathologists are pack rats!
