Tunisia: Reform of repressive laws and practices lagging

, Index number: MDE 30/5452/2016

While Tunisia has taken significant steps and made positive legal changes aimed at breaking with abuses of the past following the 2010-2011 uprising, human rights violations persist and repressive laws and practices remain. Torture, sexual violence and other ill-treatment by state agents continue to be reported and laws criminalizing sex workers and same-sex sexual relations put sex workers and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) persons at risk of violence and other abuses by the police.
