Case of Mohamed Zouari assassination focus of Interior Minister’s plenary hearing

“The case of the assassination of Mohamed Zouari has been entrusted to the investigating judge at the The Counter-Terrorism Judicial Pole and any leak of information on this subject represents a violation of the confidentiality of the investigation,” Interior Minister Lotfi Brahem said Saturday.

“I am not entitled to give details about this case, insofar as this file is now in the hands of the judicial pole of fight against terrorism,” he said in response to a question addressed by Democratic Bloc MP Zouheir Maghzaoui on the case of the assassination of Mohamed Zouari during his plenary hearing of the House of People’s Representatives (HPR).

For Brahem, the charges brought by the Palestinian “Hamas” Movement against the Israeli intelligence services for involvement in the assassination of Mohamed Zouari are devoid of relevant and admissible facts.

“The security apparatus is making every effort to prevent any attempt to infiltrate foreign intelligence services in Tunisia,” he said.

The Interior Minister’s answer was not convincing for Zouheir Maghzaoui who reported “an attempt to bury the case”, saying that the Hamas Movement report on Zouari’s assassination contains several facts that could be verified.

He also criticised the reluctance of official authorities to explicitly accuse the Zionist entity of being behind this crime.

Mohamed Zouari was shot dead on December 15, 2016 in front of his home on the road from Menzel Chaker to South Sfax while he was in his car.
