    Ben Ali and his family were accused of great corruption,[47] which was a major contribution to recent events all across Tunisia protesting the theft of Tunisian wealth, and lack of opportunities for average Tunisians. Many of Ben Ali's family members subsequently left the country for reasons of personal safety[citation needed].
    Ben Ali’s wife and Tunisia’s former first lady Leïla Ben Ali was the chair of the Basma Association, a group that promotes social integration and provides employment opportunities for the disabled.[48] Leïla Ben Ali is also the president of the Arab Women Organization, that works to empower women to promote progress in Arab states.[49] In July 2010, the first lady founded the “SAIDA” Association (named after her late mother) to improve care for cancer patients in Tunisia.[50] Leïla Ben Ali has three children: Nesrine, Halima and Mohamed Zine El Abidine. Ben Ali also has three daughters from his first marriage: Ghazwa, Dorsaf and Cyrine.
    Leila Trabelsi reportedly took 1.5 tonnes of gold from the central bank when she and her family fled to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.[51]
    Her nephew, Imed Trabelsi, was arrested during the 2010-2011 protests in Tunisia.
    On 20 January 2011, Tunisian television reported that 33 members of Ben Ali's family had been arrested in the past week, as they tried to flee the country.[52]

    On 17 February 2011, it was reported that Ben Ali had suffered a stroke, and had been hospitalised for an indefinite period.[53] Aljazeera Satellite Channel reported that a Saudi source has confirmed that Ben Ali has indeed sustained severe complications of a stroke and that he is in critical condition
