French Prosecutors: No Reason for Charges in Arafat's Death

Tuesday, 21 July 2015 01:51 PM

PARIS (AP) — A French prosecutor's office says there is not sufficient reason to bring charges in the 2004 death of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and asked that the case be dismissed.

The final word in the investigation into the possibility that Arafat was poisoned will come from an investigating magistrate at a later, not yet known date.

The prosecutor's office in Nanterre said Tuesday that after its investigation into Arafat's death at Percy Military Hospital outside Paris, it considered that "it is not possible to establish sufficient charges against anyone." No one in particular had been targeted in the probe.

After a 2012 report that traces of radioactive polonium were found on Arafat's clothing, Arafat's widow Suha filed a legal complaint in France seeking an investigation into whether he was murdered.
