Özal poisoned with 4 substances: claim
Former Turkish President Turgut Özal
Initial results of the forensic investigation indicate that four different types of poison have been found on the body of former Turkish President Turgut Özal, daily Zaman reported on Nov. 24.
The poisons have been identified as radioactive chemicals Cadmium, Americium, Polonium and DDT, which had formerly been used as an insect powder.
It has been claimed that Özal's body was first weakened by radioactive chemicals before he was assassinated with DDT.
As part of the Ankara Prosecution Office's investigation into Özal's death, his body was exhumed from his grave earlier this year in order for samples to be collected for the investigation.
