Tunisian Islamist: I don’t mind granting amnesty to Ben Ali
Friday, 11 December 2015
The guest of this week’s episode of Point of Order is Abdel Fattah Moro, Vice President of the Tunisian Parliament and Vice President of the “Nahda Movement”. He believes that terrorism came to Tunisia before his movement entered the political arena in 2011. He asked for reforms that take account of the Ministry of Interior in order to address the wave of terrorism faced by the country. In the context of his support of the draft reconciliation project proposed by the president, he said that he does not mind to grant amnesty to former President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali if he apologized and admitted his mistakes politically and not in the judicial context. Moro criticized the Minister of religious affairs who isolated some Imams because he believes that his move was “not based on any applicable standard.”
