j/.I t OF T TS T^IPQLITAij SULi^I^AlI i£L BARUNX ,
It was reported in Summeiry 1]q. 664 that Suleiman el
Baruni, a Tripolitan, who is believed to be an Italian Secret
Service a^ent, arrived in Constantinople during April last, and
was endeavouring to obtain permission to proceed, to Angora.
Jil Baruni 1 s presence in Constantinople, and the fact that
he uesires to proceed to Anatolia, have been confirmed by a
good local source, according to whom, the Tripolitan recently
sent a personal telegram to Mustafa Kemal, stating that he
had important matters to discuss with the latter.
B1 Baruni from Angora, and it appeared doubtful whether Mustafa
Kemal would consent to his proceeding there. It appeared
possible that the lack of success attending Baruni’s efforts
to enter Anatolia, were due to the influence of the Sheikh el
Senussi at Angora. The Sheikh el Senussi is known to
detest B1 Baruni, on account of the nature of the latter’s
activities in Tripoli.
S.I.S. *
31 Baruni is ex-benator for Tripoli, and belongs
to the sect known as Ahl-el-Khamis. He has in
the past played the role of an adventurer, and
there appears to b e no doubt that he is a paid
agent of the Italians, who are reported to have
used him in causing inter-tribal friction, ml
Baruni is also reported to have been in close touch
with the ex-Khedive, Abbas Hilmi, and to have been
engaged in Abbadite activities generally in Tripoli*
Note*
His request to visit Bombay and Muscat was twice refused
in 1923 the High Commissioner, Constantinople, giving it as
his opinion on the second occasion that he should not be en
couraged to travel in British Moslem Dependencies. In
1926 he reached Muscat from the interior of Oman and undertook
to stay there for a period of seven years as Finance Minister
of the Imam of Oman. He has given no trouble during his
stay in Oman.
