The bodyguard of the ousted Tunisian President Zen El Abedeen Ben Ali has said that Ben Ali and his wife Laila El Trabolsi are supporters of Israel. Abdel Rahman Sobeir also claims that El Trabolsi is a Mossad agent who was involved in several assassinations of Palestinian leaders when they were exiled in Tunisia.
Mr Sobeir revealed this sensitive information on Facebook; he accused Tunisia’s ex-First Couple and their son-in-law Selim Shaiboub, along with a number of senior security chiefs, of criminal activity. According to reports in the Algerian newspaper Al Shorouk, in 1991 Laila Ben Ali recruited two agents in the Tunisian intelligence services to assassinate a Tunisian businessman who was a close friend of Ben Ali but had opposed her marriage to the ousted president.
“Ben Ali’s son-in-law was behind the death of a four-year-old girl in the Radeif area in 1992, an act proved by state security investigators,” claims Sobeir. He added that there are many more treasures in the Carthage Palace than have been disclosed. The treasures include gold and sapphire decorations brought together by Leila and her brother Belhasan.
