Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Tunisia, Governance, Human Rights, Ideas, International Relations, Law, Politics

Mouwaten Tounsi deplores (Fr) that ex-Tunisian diplomat Khaled Ben Saïd is being judged in France for torture [1]. He would have liked Ben Saïd judged in Tunisia. He proposes a reconciliation-based justice. The process would focus on indemnification of torture victims by the government rather than on prosecution of officials who have committed acts of torture.
