The investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, on which Carter-Ruck’s international law team has been working for the past 18 months, has taken a dramatic turn with the revelation that Swiss scientists who tested his remains discovered levels of radioactive polonium-210 which pointed strongly to his having been the victim of deliberate poisoning.
The news received very widespread coverage across the world’s media, with Al Jazeera and The Guardian taking the lead.
