An opposition member detained in Tunisia amid a wave of arrests

14 Feb. (EUROPA PRESS) –

The Tunisian Justice has arrested on Monday Noureddine Bhiri, a member of the opposition Ennahda party, a movement that has been instantly criticized by the political formation, which has described the arrest as an attack against opponents of Tunisian President Kais Saied.

This has been confirmed by the lawyer and political activist Samir Dilo, as he recounted in an interview with the Mosaique FM radio station. Tunisian security forces have arrested Noureddine Bhiri after raiding his home.

Likewise, the lawyer and politician Zahr al Akram has also been arrested this Monday, according to lawyer Samir Dilou, in a statement to the Tunis Afrique news agency.

For his part, the leader of the Ennahda movement, Abdel Fattah al Tagouti, has criticized what he has considered an attack against opponents in Tunisia by President Kais Saied.

He has also pointed out that the security forces have violently assaulted Bhiri’s wife and children, describing the arrests of dissidents and trade unionists as a barbaric attack by the coup authority to liquidate their political opponents, abuse them and cover up economic failure. .

These arrests come just one day after the Tunisian Justice ordered the arrest of the former president of the Court of Cassation Tayeb Ras and the former prosecutor of the first instance of the capital Al Bashir al Akrami, accusing both of having committed crimes of corruption.
