Tunisian police arrest ex-PM Hamadi Jebali

Police in Tunisia have arrested a former prime minister, Hamadi Jebali.


During his premiership from 2011 to 2013, Mr Jebali belonged to the Ennahda Islamist party – the largest in parliament until President Kais Saied dissolved the assembly and seized executive power in Tunisia last year.


Mr Jebali’s lawyer said the former politician had been under recent investigation at his boiler factory in the city of Soussa, but could not say why he had been detained.


His family have denounced his arrest as “repressive”, and say they hold President Saied personally responsible for his well-being.
