After 26 days of strike…a leader of the “Ennahda” movement loses his ability…


The defense committee for the leader of the Ennahda movement in Tunisia, Sahbi Ateeq, warned that the health condition of her client threatens his life after 25 days of hunger strike in protest of his arrest, as the political prisoner is no longer able to stand, according to what his wife announced.

In a statement, on Monday, the defense committee held the investigating judge in charge of the file fully responsible for what threatens the life of the leader of the Ennahda movement, after his arbitrary and unfair decision and his failure to take an obvious decision to release him, despite receiving a certificate confirming his innocence.

The commission demanded the immediate release of the companion, Ateeq, warning that the campaign of persecution of opponents of the authority is about to take a dangerous turn that threatens the fall of innocent victims in Tunisia.

For her part, Zainab Mraihi, the wife of the companion Ateeq, said that she visited her husband in the civil prison in Mornaguia, but he interrupted the visit because he was unable to stand due to his deteriorating health condition, noting that the leader of the Ennahda movement was no longer able to walk either.

In turn, the Ennahda movement held the Tunisian authorities responsible for the life of the leader in the movement, Sahbi Ateeq, after his health deteriorated due to his hunger strike, while former President Moncef Marzouki called on him to stop the strike to save his life.

And the movement said in a statement, on Monday, that it is “following with great concern the deterioration of the health condition of Dr. Al-Sahbi Ateeq, which exposes him to the possibility of failure of the functions of many organs and puts him in serious danger that threatens his life and may result in death, God forbid, or complete disability that results in a permanent loss of bodily functions.” “.

It added that Ateeq continues his “barbaric hunger strike for the twenty-sixth day in a row, in light of the authorities’ complete disregard for his inhumane situation and their disregard for the lives of political prisoners.”

The movement called on “all benefactors in the country to intervene to save the life of the companion Ateeq and remove the grievance from him,” blaming the authorities for “the political and moral responsibility for the dangerous development of the case of an aggrieved man in a fabricated case.”

In mid-May, the Tunisian judiciary issued a decision to imprison the leader of the Ennahda Movement, Sahbi Ateeq, who was arrested by the authorities on May 6, while he was preparing to leave the country.

Ateeq’s arrest came against the backdrop of a case where his house was robbed years ago, and the person involved in the theft was recently arrested, according to local media.
