Tunis — The National Tunisian Journalists' Union (SNJT) expresses, Tuesday, its refusal of the election by the National Constituent Assembly of the Press Regulation Authority without the participation of the professionals.

The Union, which denounces the recent aggressions against the journalists requests the immediate implementation of article 14 of the decree-law N°115 asserting the protection of the journalists and criminilising their aggressors.
