Tunisian Radio Mosaique reported, quoting its sources, that the frozen speaker of the House of Representatives and the head of the Tunisian Ennahda movement, Rached Ghannouchi, was transferred to a private clinic after he fell ill, in order to conduct the necessary examinations and examinations.
The Tunisian military judiciary announced that MP Yassin Al-Ayari, who was arrested on Friday, will serve a prison sentence imposed on him in 2018 for “undermining the morale of the army,” while local reports said today that a judge in charge of terrorist cases was placed under house arrest.
Local media, including Mosaique FM and Jawhara FM, reported that the controversial judge, Al-Bashir Al-Akrimi, was placed under house arrest in implementation of a decision issued by the designated Minister of Interior, Reda Gharslawi, the former security advisor to President Kais Saied.
Activists and lawyers have often accused Al-Akrami, who handled terrorism-related cases, including the assassination of politicians Chokri Belaid and Mohamed Brahmi, of deliberately complicity to disrupt the investigation. His critics describe him as the legal arm of the Islamist Ennahda party.
Earlier this month, the Judicial Judicial Council decided to suspend the judge from work and refer his file to the Public Prosecution after accusing him of covering up terrorism-related files.
