The Tunisian authorities imprison a leader of “Al-Nahda”… Case details…

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.

On the other hand, Zainab Al-Maraihi, the wife of the companion Ateeq, said: The case is malicious, and the accusations against him are false. The entire case is based on false and forged statements issued by a 22-year-old young man with a criminal record, who is currently imprisoned in a prison in a drug case.

And she added, in a post on Facebook, that “the so-called W.M. made false statements in a theft case dating back to 2016 and related to a house in a nearby neighborhood.”

And she continued, “The media campaign launched by some proponents of spreading rumors was taken advantage of to use this slander to justify the imprisonment of the companion, Ateeq, on charges of interfering 7 years ago to cover up the theft of a house that has nothing to do with him.”

And she revealed that “none of the members of the royal family of the house that was robbed has been invited to listen to it so far, but the researcher did not even bother to verify allegations that are easy to refute by simply reviewing the concerned authorities.”

And she considered that “the goal was defined from the beginning, and the decision was ready, to join my companion, Ateeq, with the political prisoners who preceded him.”

Last Saturday evening, the Tunisian authorities prevented Al-Sahbi Ateeq, a member of the Shura Council, the Supreme Authority of the Ennahda Movement, from traveling at Tunis-Carthage International Airport.

Ateeq was on his way to Turkey to participate in a conference, as a specialist in Sharia sciences, but he was arrested by the security forces due to a security investigation regarding suspicions that he possessed significant sums of money in his home, which the politician denies.

The party said in a statement; The suspension was “based on a false insinuation from a person against whom Mr. Al-Sahbi Ateeq had previously filed several complaints of defamation and defamation, and the judiciary has yet to decide on any of them.”

The judiciary is investigating other leaders of the Ennahda movement, including party leader Rashid Ghannouchi, who has been arrested since April 17, on charges of conspiracy against state security and incitement against the authority.

In its statement, the Ennahda movement warned “against the method of disrespect in its leaders, activists, and the rest of the opposition’s symbols.”

The opposition accuses President Kais Saied of employing the judiciary to liquidate his opponents and bring fabricated charges against them, which the president denies in his statements.
