Tunisia: Continuing abuses in the name of security

, Index number: MDE 30/010/2009

This report describes human rights violations committed in Tunisia in the past year in the name of counter-terrorism and security and updates information in a previous Amnesty International report. That report described a pattern of human rights violations including arbitrary arrests, enforced disappearances and torture. This report updates cases described in the earlier report and provides information about new arrests under the Tunisian government’s counter-terrorism policy and of Tunisian nationals who have been tried and sentenced for terrorism-related offences in Tunisia after being forcibly returned from abroad.
