Tunisia extends state of emergency for 1 month

Date:

Tunisian President Kais Saied decided to extend the state of emergency imposed across the country for one month.

“Saied decided to extend the state of emergency in the entire territory of the republic for one month, starting from January 1, 2023 until January 30, 2023,” said the official gazette Journal of the Republic of Tunisia (JORT) on Friday.

The state of emergency in Tunisia was first declared on November 24, 2015, following a bloody bomb attack on a bus of the presidential guards, which killed 12 agents.

Tunisian emergency law allows the authorities’ exceptional powers, including carrying out home arrests, banning official meetings, imposing curfews, monitoring media and press, prohibiting assemblies, and media censorship without permission from the judiciary.

On February 18, Saied decided to extend the state of emergency imposed across the country until the end of 2022.
