Tunisia to Step up Security Measures

Tunis, Sept. 6. (BNA) — Interim Tunisian Prime Minister Beji Caid Essebsi today announced a series of decisions aimed to re-establish security in the country, following the outbreak of violence in some regions.
Essebsi said that meetings likely to harm the national security will be banned, adding that the Interior Minister is given the power to place under house arrest anyone who dares to undermine national stability.
Essebsi’s decisions also include giving to the governors all the necessary prerogatives in accordance with the emergency state decreed in the country, to consecrate the primacy of law in front of any possible security drift.
In the speech he delivered to the Tunisian people, Mr. Essebsi specified that the government will not tolerate practices that risk to paralyse the daily life of the Tunisians, such as blocking of roads, attacking police stations and sovereign authorities’ premises and the aggression of the security forces and the National Army.
