    Communist Party Denounces Recent Arrests

    In a press conference yesterday, September 28th, held in Tunisian Workers Communist Party (PCOT) headquarters in Tunis, the party reinforced its discourse against government institutions. This time their accusations were pointed at the Ministry of Interior for maintaining “the same dispositions of the ousted regime”.

    The allegations come after the random arrests that occurred lately across the country supposedly done to ensure compulsory military service.  A delegation headed by Hamma Hammami, the president and spokesman of the party, met the Minister of Defense last Tuesday in order to protest these operations fearing  the potential role of the military in superseding the electoral process.

    Subsequently, Abd El Moumin Belaness, a leader in the party, claimed that the police targeted certain figures from PCOT in order to “avenge what they did during the revolution”.
