    Watchdog organization I-Watch organized yesterday a symposium on “Reform of the Security System: Facts and Challenges” to discuss solutions and ideas that are to be presented as recommendations to the government.

    Representatives of civil society and international organizations, whistleblowers, and bloggers, such as journalist and human rights activist Sihem Ben Sedrine and Nawaat journalist Ramzi Bettaieb all joined in yesterday’s discussion on the state of security reform in Tunisia after the revolution.

    “Up to this day there is no real political will to reform the police system,” said Ben Sedrine. “From the revolution until the elections [October 23, 2011], civil society activists used to communicate with ministries and governmental leaders.”

    According to Ben Sedrine, this is no longer the case with current interim government. ”Now the doors [of dialogue] are all closed,” she stated.

    I-Watch is a non-profit organization, which was formed after the revolution and aims to uncover financial and administrative corruption and promote governmental transparency.
