    Sami Fehri

    The indictment chamber at the Court of Appeals in Tunis decided yesterday to postpone the consideration of Sami Fehri’s case until January 3, 2013 and refuses to grant him parole.

    Fehri is a TV producer and director of Ettounsiya Television, who has been detained for over three months under corruption charges.

    On November 28, the Court of Appeals rejected the accusations of corruption against the TV producer and returned his case to another indictment chamber.

    Following the Court of Appeals’ decision, the Ministry of Justice argued that it did not mean that Fehri would be released – a claim that his lawyers contest.

    “Fehri should have been freed now. There is no legal explanation to detain him in prison when the court of appeals repealed the decision taken by the previous indictment chamber,” said Abdelaziz Essid, the attorney in charge of Fehri’s defense.
