, Index number: MDE 28/005/2000

On 24 March 2000 Fatima ‘Ime was released from police detention and allowed to return home. On 25 March Fatima Ben Mousa (f), Rahmouna Bourahla (f), Faouzia Guene (f) and Badra Leban (f) were charged with participating in an unauthorised gathering in a public place and released on bail pending trial on 21 May. They were told by the authorities that if they take part in any more demonstrations they will be imprisoned. This same warning has apparently been issued to other families of the "disappeared".
