Tunisia: 'We Are Not Advocates of Violence,' Says Delegation of Revolution Protection Leagues

Carthage — A delegation of Leagues for Protection of the Revolution, Saturday, called for speeding up the process of holding to account persons involved in the cases of martyrs and injured of the Revolution accountable and opening cases of corruption and misappropriation of public funds.

"We are not advocates of violence and we are confident in the ability of the Tunisian people to protect the Revolution," said members of the delegation at a meeting with Caretaker President Moncef Marzouki.

"I treat all Tunisians on equal footing, provided that they do not use violence or impose their views by force," underlined Marzouki.

He also said that "the realisation of the objectives of the Revolution is a common goal which "must be achieved without violating the law or using violence."
