FREED BUT NOT FREE

TUNISIA’S FORMER  POLITICAL PRISONERS

AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL FEBRUARY 2010

-Abdelkarim Harouni case in this report is on page n° 6-

I make reference to just published Amnesty International February 2010 report to stress that the illegal and inhuman known police siege carried out against my brother Abdelkarim Harouni, ex- political prisoner (16 years of prison among them 15 ones under illegal solitary confinement) and Human Rights Militant is not broken.

Various civil police car brands are strictly reserved for a specific and basic task to accomplish that is Abdelkarim’ s  shadow ! at his place of work at “Les Berges du Lac”, at home and wherever he might be … (Ref. : My daily published follow-up of the siege). Under such violation of the human being right for life, could one still qualify the life that my brother and our family are leading as being a true life in our country ?!, I let you think of what it can be called… .

Today, Wednesday 2010 a very astonishing incident took place as far as the police siege around and in front of my brother’s place of work is concerned as the used civil police car this time is a TOYOTA white car -4 doors- N° 81 TN 32 had a defective license plate from front and back with 2 civil police agents inside ?!!!.

Here are some extracts from the above mentioned Amnesty International report :

ABDELKARIM HAROUNI

“This harassment is an attempt

to isolate me from society.

Finding a job, getting married

or visiting friends and relatives

are difficult tasks. There is a

climate of fear among my family

members, the neighbours and

my friends, who do not dare to

visit us.”

Abdelkarim Harouni

FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT

The Constitution protects the right to freedom

of movement, stating that “every citizen has

the right to move freely within the country,

to leave it…” (Article 10). So too does the

ICCPR. Although Article 12 of the ICCPR

states that the right to liberty of movement

and freedom to choose one’s residence within

a territory and the right to leave a country

may be restricted by law, these restrictions

must be necessary to protect national

security, public order, public health or morals

or the rights or freedoms of others, and “must

not nullify the principle of liberty of

movement” as stated by the Human Rights

Committee. Restrictions on freedom of

movement should only be imposed if they are

absolutely necessary, and non-discriminatory

and proportionate in terms of their impact

and duration. The restrictions imposed on

Tunisia’s former political prisoners clearly

do not meet these criteria.

 

(this is but a part of FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT in the report)

 

ACT NOW

The relentless harassment of former

political prisoners is denying hundreds of

people their fundamental rights and is

emblematic of the Tunisian government’s

intolerance towards any criticism or

dissent, past or present. The prisoners

have already been punished, many of

them after unfair trials and for activities

that should not be criminalized. They

should now be free to rebuild their social

and family lives, find paid employment,

and access appropriate medical care. They

should also be free to exercise their rights

to freedom of expression, assembly and

association – rights for which many of

them have already spent years in prison.

Please write to the Tunisian authorities

and call on them to:

_ end the harassment and stigmatization

of political prisoners after their release;

_ end the imposition of abusive or

arbitrary measures of administrative

control on former political prisoners;

_ ensure freedom of movement to

former political prisoners and allow them

to reintegrate into society, through

contacting their social networks, finding

employment, accessing health care, and

obtaining official and identity documents,

including passports;

_ repeal all provisions in the Penal Code,

the Press Code, the 1969 law on public

meetings, the 1959 law on associations,

which criminalize the peaceful exercise

of the rights to freedom of expression,

association and assembly;

_ stop the harassment, arrest,

prosecution and conviction of

individuals for peacefully exercising

their right to freedom of expression,

assembly and association;

_ grant legal registration to NGOs

working for the rights of former political

prisoners, including the International

Association for the Support of Political

Prisoners and Liberty and Equity;

_ undertake a thorough review of the

laws, policies and practices that led to

the victimization of hundreds of Tunisians,

and adopt a comprehensive plan to

rehabilitate victims of state abuses.

Adequate reparation should be provided,

including compensation, restitution,

rehabilitation, measures of satisfaction

and guarantee of non-repetition, as well

as bringing to justice the perpetrators of

human rights violations.
