Jamel Moslem reports signs of backtracking on achievements of civil liberties and human rights in Tunisia

Jamel Moslem, president of the Tunisian Human Rights League (LTDH), said Tuesday signs of backtracking on achievements made in civil liberties and human rights in Tunisia.

While expressing his concern about this backtracking, Jamel Moslem said that “the LTDH and the various human rights organisations in Tunisia are currently assessing the current situation to intervene and remedy the situation.

According to him, the constitutional authorities are subject to political pressure. “They are dominated by political tensions that have had a negative impact on their performance,” he regretted on the sidelines of the signing of a framework agreement between the LTDH and the Arab Institute for Human Rights ( AIHR).

For AIHR president Abdelbasset Ben Hassen, “the human rights situation in Tunisia remains fragile in the absence of a real system for the protection of human rights. “The control and accountability mechanisms are weak,” he said.

“The human rights situation in Tunisia also depends on the stability of the political situation,” he added.

According to him, human rights must be governed by laws and institutions of control. “They have to become a social culture,” he said.

“Achieving this goal needs time and requires support for human rights organisations instead of attacking and devaluing them,” he said.

A framework cooperation agreement was signed Tuesday between the LTDH and the IADH on the establishment of a training programme for the benefit of the League’s executives.
