Tunisia: Authorities must investigate excessive use of force in Tataouine

Amnesty Internationals calls for the Tunisian authorities to investigate the means deployed between 20 and 23 June 2020 to disperse what is known as the El-Kamour sit-in to protest the socioeconomic situation in the southern governorate of Tataouine. Amnesty International’s research has concluded that security forces arbitrarily arrested dozens of protesters and used unnecessary and excessive force, including through beatings and the deployment of tear gas, violating the rights to freedom of expression, to peaceful assembly and to liberty of person.
