According to Al-Akhbar (The News), Al-Joumhouria (The Republic) and Al-Sarih (The Honest) , Leila Ben Ali, former first lady of Tunisia, attempted suicide by poisoning herself in her residence in Abha, southern Saudi Arabia, during the beginning of the week. The CEO of the Liberal Marghrebian party said that he has reliable information about her attempted suicide, including the name of the hospital and the names of her doctors .
The poison was not enough to kill her immediately, so she began to scream from the pain. Her family and domestic workers were able to hear her and took her to the hospital where she was treated. Dr. Abdallah Al-Nabelsi of Abha Hospital, said that her condition is stable at the moment.
The investigations showed that the poison was provided to Leila by an Egyptian citizen in one of Abha’s shopping malls. It appears that Leila Ben Ali is depressed and facing psychological problems after the trial where she and her husband, ex-President of Tunisia Zine al-Abadine Ben Ali, were sentenced to 50 years in jail and given a fine of 50 Million Dollars.
