Journalists promise that there can no longer be return to “police state”, on day of rage of Tunisian press

Several journalists organised a protest rally on Friday at the headquarters of the National Union of Tunisian Journalists (SNJT) to express their “anger” at the proliferation of attacks by the police unions against the information sector and the restrictions applied to the Tunisian press.

“These campaigns represent a real threat to the freedom of information that represents one of the post-revolution gains,” SNJT President Neji Bghouri said on the occasion of this day of rage in the Tunisian press.

This protest movement is a message to assert that there can no longer be a return to “the police state”.

“The Tunisian people are today the only people in the region who express their opinion freely and without fear. However, this freedom is now threatened, given the promises of the Interior Minister Lotfi Brahem to sue anyone who criticises the department, by wiretapping and allowing the torture of journalists, “he said.

While criticizing the indifference of the Justice Minister in the face of these attacks, Bghouri considered that the silence of the Prime Minister in front of the abuses of his ministers and the accusations made by the president of the Republic against the journalists and more particularly against the correspondents of the foreign press represent a danger for the freedom of information and the press.

Several politicians and representatives of civil society joined the protest rally of journalists.
