Tunisian former president, Moncef Marzouki

A Tunisian court announced on Wednesday four years in prison for former president, Moncef Marzouki.

According to local media, Marzouki, described as a fierce critic of president Kais Saied, was sentenced in absentia and accused of “undermining state security abroad” as well as causing “diplomatic damage” to the state.

At the beginning of November, a Tunisian judge issued an international arrest warrant against Marzouki.

peaking to AFP news agency, Marzouki’s lawyer, Lamia Khemiri, said that the former president had not received any summons to appear in court.
