Tunisia: 'I Have No Personal Problem With Marzouki, and My Dismissal Is Unjustified' Bct Governor

Tunis — Tunisia's Central Bank (BCT) Governor Mustapha Kamel Nabli asserted that the decision of his dismissal by Interim President Moncef Marzouki "is not based on clear and convincing arguments," denying "the existence of any personal problem with the President."

Addressing, on Friday, Tunisian and foreign media, he pointed out that the reasons behind this "unilateral" decision have not been revealed yet, and that this decision had not been referred to the National Constituent Assembly (NCA).

Mr. Nabli affirmed that "all the chargers against him and the BCT are groundless", adding that "legal actions will be taken against all sides involved in publishing such accusations."

In another connection, he said he had not met the Interim President of the Republic, adding that he is awaiting for setting a date for a meeting to present the BCT's annual report.

BCT Governor recalled that in case the NCA does not adopt the decision of his revocation, he will remain in his post, which he had held after the Revolution for a six-year mandate, in compliance with the law that aimed to preserve the post of the Central Bank's Governor.
