Tunisia: Act now for Saber Ragoubi

, Index number: MDE 30/003/2008

Saber Ragoubi was arrested as he surrendered following confrontations between the security forces and an armed group. He was tried unfairly and sentenced to death in December 2007, largely on the basis of information obtained from him and other co-defendants under torture. This document urges the Tunisian authorities to retry in proceedings that meet international fair trial standards or release Saber Ragoubi; to ensure that allegations of torture are promptly investigated and to commute the death sentence imposed on him.
