Committal order issued against woman who attempted to run over security patrol in Kabsah (Selliti)

A committal order was issued against the woman who attempted to run over a security patrol deployed in Kasbah last November 8, Spokesman for the Court of First Instance and the Judicial Counter-Terrorism Division Sofiene Selliti said Thursday.

A woman had run her car into a police patrol deployed in the perimeter of the Kasbah.

According to a statement from the Interior Ministry, the woman tried to flee, but the police managed to immediately arrest her.

The committal order was issued by the senior investigating judge in charge of the case, following the closure of the investigation, said Selliti.

The public prosecutor’s office had entrusted the investigation in this case to the National Unit of Investigation into Terrorism Crimes at the Directorate-General of National Security of El-Gorjani.

The Ministry of the Interior had dismissed any terrorist-related motives behind this case.

According to the first elements of the investigation, “the incident has a rather criminal aspect”.

“The woman behind the wheel suffers from difficult psychological problems. She wanted to draw attention to her social situation, “the Interior Ministry had said in a statement.

Three police officers were slightly injured when metal barriers knocked over by the woman’s car fell on them, according to the same source.
