Police brigade at Slim Riahi’s work site to execute seizure decision (Interior)

A police brigade moved to the Berges du Lac in Tunis on Tuesday where the office of the businessman and president of the Free Patriotic Union (UPL) party Slim Riahi is located, to “execute a seizure decision,” an official source at the Interior Ministry told TAP.

Slim Riahi’s lawyer Taieb Bessadok said “what happened this morning is not an execution decision”. “The issue is not yet clear,” he added.

Yosra Mili, a UPL political bureau member in charge of communication said “a group of people whose identity is unknown entered the office of president of the party Slim Riahi at around 8:00 this morning and ordered the employees to leave”.

That information was denied by the Ministry of the Interior which states that it is “an execution of a seizure decision”.

The Tunis Court of First Instance had decided Monday to defer the hearing in the check payment case against Slim Riahi, president of the UPL party until September 25.

The Tribunal also decided to keep Slim Riahi at liberty.

On 4 August, the Public Prosecutor at the Court of First Instance issued wanted notices against Slim Riahi for issuing NSF checks.

In a statement to TAP, on 5 August, spokesman for the Court of First Instance, Sofiene Selliti, explained that Slim Riahi was sentenced in absentia to prison sentences for issuing NSF check with immediate execution.

On June 28, the investigating judge of the judicial economic and financial division ordered the freezing of Slim Riahi’s assets over suspected money laundering.
