Tunisia: Court Frees Ettounsiya TV Head

Tunisia's Court of Cassation on Wednesday (November 28th) ordered the release of Ettounsiya TV head Sami Fehri, Shems FM quoted defence lawyer Sonia Dahmani as saying.

Fehri was arrested in August and was charged with "illegal use of Tunisian state television resources" during Ben Ali's rule, days after his station aired a satirical puppet show that mocked members of the Ennahda-led government.
