Tunisia: Attounssia TV Chief Hospitalised After Hunger Strike
28 December 2012
Attounssia TV director Sami Fehri was transferred from Mornaguia prison to a Tunis hospital on Thursday (December 27th), TAP reported. According to his lawyer, Fehri's health worsened as a result of a hunger strike launched on December 18th.
Fehri was arrested in August for "illegal use of Tunisian state television resources", days after his station aired a satirical puppet show that mocked members of the Ennahda-led government.
