Tunisia forbids access to Arafat's papers

From Ma'an:
The pan-Arab daily newspaper Al-Quds Al-Arabi reported on Wednesday that the Tunisian authorities have refused to open the late Palestinian President Yasser Arafat's office to the public.

The source added that there have been several attempts to obtain access to the personal archives of Arafat.

The archives include correspondence, documents and secret letters of Arafat, and are believed to reveal the personal life behind the public figure.

The main archives of Yasser Arafat in his Tunisia office are closed to the public.
One can understand how proof of his corruption and homosexuality might be a tad embarrassing.
