In Tunisa….Luxury goods once belonging to the ousted Tunisian leader Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali and his family have been put up for auction. Around 40 top-of-the-range cars are being sold off, as well as gold and diamond jewelry and furnishings. The former leader was forced into exile two years ago, in the first uprising of what became known as the Arab Spring.

Tunisia: CPR Party Stages Protest Rally in Front of Saudi Embassy Claiming Extradition of Ben Ali

14 January 2013

Tunis — The Congress for the Republic Party (CPR) staged, on Monday, on the occasion of the celebration of the second anniversary of the Revolution, a protest rally in front of the Saudi embassy in Tunis, claiming the extradition of former President Zine el Abidine Ben Ali and his trial.

Mr. Mehdi Ammar, CPR National Constituent Assembly (NCA) member said to TAP news agency that “the Tunisian people expects that Ben Ali be fairly judged like any Tunisian citizen.”

The trial of the corrupts is capital before any reconciliation, he emphasised, asserting that “Tunisia is capable, two years after the Revolution, to guarantee to Ben Ali a fair trial.”

  1. Tunisian Citizen From Ben Guerdane Shot Dead By Libyan Armed Group

    14 January 2013

    Ben Guerdane — A Tunisian citizen from Ben Guerdane, Mohamed Ben Amor Mansouri, was shot dead, on Monday morning on the Tunisian-Libyan borders, by a Libyan armed group.

    In a statement to TAP news agency, Foreign Minister Rafik Abdessalem, who was on a visit to the Medenine governorate on the celebration of the second anniversary of the January 14 Revolution, specified that the victim had been on his way to the border locality of El Faouar to get food supplies for his camel herd when three Libyan cars opened fire on his car.

    He added that “the event is painful and unacceptable and jeopardises the Tunisian territory’s security,” voicing wish that this “will not harm Tunisian-Libyan relations.”

    Besides, the Foreign Minister explained that all data will be checked and contacts will be established with the Libyan authorities to demand intervention, security coordination and the opening of an investigation.

    Earlier, Governor of Medenine Hamadi Mayara had explained that the victim had been accompanied by another person, Mohamed Ben Khechira Mansouri, who had been shot in the legs and transported to the Zarzis clinic.

    In another connection, he specified that the Libyan authorities had not yet granted authorisation to the Tunisian tradesmen to bring goods from Libya, in view of a disagreement on instituting a customs tax on the Tunisian tradesmen. This problem has not yet been settled and has impeded, according to the governor, the free trade agreement binding Tunisia and Libya.
