Naguib's Memoirs, Published in Lebanon, Assail Nasser; CIA Linked in Revelations

Jewish News Special
Israel Correspondent
TEL AVIV—The Lebanese
weekly El Hawadir has be-
gun the publication of the
memoirs of former Egyptian
President General Moham-
med Naguib, who together
with the late Cranial Abdel
Nasser carried out the re-
volution of Egyptian officers
in 1952. Two years later he
was removed by Nasser and
since then he has been un-
der house arrest outside
Cairo with a strong guard
posted outside his home.
During that time, Naguib's
wife died and his son was
murdered in West Germany,
under mysterious circum-
Now, 19 years after his
house arrest, Naguib has
been set free by President
Sadat. He has started reveal.

of Naguib's memoirs in the
Lebanese weekly. The pub-
lication was fostered by
Sadat partisans who had to
emigrate from Egypt during
Nasser's rule and who sought
The editor of the Egyptian
daily El Ghoumhouria,
Salim El Lauzi, a friend of
Sadat, edited the memoirs for
18,000 pounds sterling and
sold them to several newspa-
pers abroad, thus making a
profitable deal.
The memoirs are concern-
ed with the eve of the offi-
cers' revolution against King
Farouk, the war in Palestine
in 1948, and Naguib's two
years' rule.
Under special attack in his
memoirs is the editor of El
A h r a m, Hassanein Heikal,
who is accused of receiving
money from King Farouk's
propaganda bureau, as well
as from the American CIA.
He takes revenge for the fact
that Heikal was instrumental
in removing him from his of-
fice 19 years ago. The mem-
oirs are in the form of talks
with Naguib. When Lauzi
asked him whether he in-
tended damaging Nasser's
image by his memoirs, he
denied it. "I have no grudge

General Naguib's proposals
to introduce a democratic
regime, to allow the activities

it became known that Naguib
