Tunisia: Specific And Urgent Situation of Journalists in Some Media Discussed

Tunis — Board members of the Fund of Mutual Assistance of Tunisian Journalists (FEJT) met, on Tuesday evening at the headquarters of the Fund in Tunis, with representatives of the commission emanating from the journalists' meeting on January 20 and tasked with examining the specific and urgent situation of journalists from media organs of the RCD or those owned by relatives of Ben Ali.

A source from FEJT said the meeting focused on the situation of freelance journalists in "Assabah" and that of journalists of "El Horria" and "Le Renouveau" dailies.

The Fund published a communiqué in which it announced the temporary cessation of granting loans so as to dedicate available funds to journalists of some media institutions facing hardships.
