Tunisia: PM Calls Customs Officers to Speed Up Treatment of Citizens' Files

Tunis — Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali paid a visit, on Friday, to the Tunisian Customs General Management, where he called customs officers to provide written answers to citizens who are obliged to make the journey from their respective governorates.

During their meeting with Mr. Jebali, the citizens complained about the slow treatment of their files which could take months, a communiqué of the Prime Ministry reads.

Besides, the Prime Minister visited the customs warehouse in Ben Arous, where he took stock of the lack in the number of security officers and the necessary control equipments.

Mr. Jebali recommended to establish an inventory of the seized products and identify urgent solutions within one week, after inspecting a sample of various products (containers, wares and merchandise) which had been seized over five years ago, and whose legal situation has not been settled yet, despite the important income sources they represent for the State.
