UGTT calls HPR to hasten examination of draft law on incrimination of attacks against armed officers

The Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT) reaffirmed its support to the request of security forces to enact a law incriminating attacks against armed officers when at work.

The UGTT called on the House of People’s Representatives (HPR) to hasten the examination of the draft law on the incrimination of attacks against armed officers and its adoption after consultation with professionals.

The union recalled on Tuesday in a press release, the dangers faced by security forces, particularly in combating terrorism and organised crime, commending the efforts exerted by them to counter the threats facing the country.

The National Union of Interior Security Forces had asked last Tuesday, HPR Speaker Mohamed Ennaceur to hold an emergency meeting with the parliamentary committee of the organisation of the administration and affairs of armed forces to examine the draft law on the incrimination of attacks against officers carrying arms.

This call was launched following the death of lieutenant Majdi Hajlaoui, who died of the serious burns he suffered on June 22 in the Bir Lahfay delegation in Sidi Bouzid.

Hajlaoui had been the victim of an attack perpetrated by a group of individuals who had thrown a Molotov cocktail on the police car, causing burns to four officers, including the deceased, the most severely affected.
