He was a former shareholder in Chelsea football club and had a colourful list of associates.

マルワン氏はイスラエル当局に内報（tipped off）していた人物だと看做されていた。かつてモサドのオフィサーであり現在は軍事歴史家のGad Shimron氏は、その「事実」は、ヨム・キプール戦争後、イスラエルのスパイマスターの証言があり、2004年に出版された著書に記されているとおりだ（いまさら何だ？）、とロイター通信に語った。
Gad Shimron, a former officer with Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency, turned military historian, told Reuters: "We know now, from testimony given by Israeli spymasters and made public years after the Yom Kippur war, that Marwan was the man who tipped off Mossad."
It was alleged in a book in 2004 that Mr Marwan gave Israel an early warning about the start of the war, but Israel's leaders ignored it and were caught by surprise when Egypt and Syria attacked.
It was reported that Mr Marwan first walked into the Israeli embassy in London in 1969 and volunteered to give information and was initially turned down, but later recruited by Mossad.

Historians claim that Mr Marwan was recruited by Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency, and helped to alert Israel about an impending attack by Egypt and Syria in 1973. Others believe that he was a double agent feeding misinformation.

In this unique book a former senior Mossad agent describes an operation carried out in 1964-65 to identify, locate and execute the notorious Nazi war criminal Herbert Cukurs, who was personally responsible for the murder of over 30,000 Latvian Jews.
The main part of the operation was undertaken almost single-handedly by 'Anton Kuenzle'. He relates how he planned and carried out this risky operation, creating an identity as a successful businessman and offering Cukurs a lucrative deal to entice him away from his secure life in Brazil to a trap laid for him in Uruguay. There Cukurs met his fate at the hands of a Mossad hit team.

Egyptian authorities have charged a nuclear engineer employed by the state atomic energy body with spying for Israel, along with an Irish man and a Japanese man who remain at large.
Prosecutors said in Cairo yesterday that Mohamed Saber Ali, 35, was suspected of handing over "important documents" to the two foreigners, described as agents of Israel's Mossad spy agency.
The Israeli foreign ministry said it had no knowledge of the case, the latest of several to bedevil the country's habitually frosty relations with Egypt.
The two countries ended decades of hostility with the Camp David accords in the late 1970s, but ties have been put under strain over a string of espionage cases.
Last September, Egypt said it wanted to revive its nuclear power programme, which was frozen 20 years ago following the Chernobyl disaster in the Soviet Union.
