A Tunisian lawyer, who is a member of the defense team of assassinated political opponents Chokri Belaid and Mohamed Brahmi, announced on Saturday that he will file a legal case to dissolve the Ennahda Movement Party for its alleged links to terror.
Ali Kalthum, the defense team’s member said that he will push his case against Ennahda in front the court which held on Friday a hearing on the assassination case.
Meanwhile the Court of First Instance postponed its deliberations on the case of the assassination of Belaid to March 30, 2019.
On Thursday, Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi stated that the Ennahda Movement Party threatened him personally and that he would not allow it.
Essebsi comments came during his supervision of the National Security Council’s meeting at Carthage Presidential Palace.
This development came after the Security Council said it will investigate the secret apparatus of the Ennahda Movement Party.
