Three dismissed judges in Tunisia go on hunger strike against the president's "interference"

June 23 (EUROPA PRESS) –

A total of three judges recently dismissed by the president of Tunisia, Kais Saied, for alleged corruption and cover-up of terrorism suspects have announced the start of a hunger strike to protest against the president’s “interference” in the judiciary and demand his restitution.

Judge Hamadi Rahmani has underlined in a statement read during the announcement of the protest that the judges demand “a true independence of justice”, in the midst of a strike of judges against the president’s decisions, according to the Tunisian state agency of news, tap.

Judges have been on strike since June 6 following a call by the Tunisian Judges Association against the dismissal of about 60 judges, while a “Day of Rage” is called for this Thursday to increase protests against Saied , as reported by the Mosaique FM station.


Saied is facing growing criticism for the economic crisis and the exceptional measures adopted since May 2021, when he dissolved the Government and suspended Parliament –later dissolved– to assume all powers, a measure denounced by numerous parties, including the Islamist Ennahda.
