Tunisia: 'I Would Not Make Any Statement, It Is the Least I Can Do for My Country in This Time', Jebali

Tunis — Outgoing Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali refused, at the end of a visit to the National Guard barracks, to make a statement to the media.

"I would not make any statement, it is the least I can do for my country in this time," he just said.

Mr. Jebali took stock of the quantities of arms seized in the locality of M'nihla (governorate of Ariana), Jendouba and Siliana.

Colonel Ezzedine Ben Kahla, Director of Research and Investigation at the National Guard, said that Jebali's visit focused on the National Guard units' activities, notably in countering terrorism and arms trafficking.

As to the sides involved in the case of the weapon arsenal discovered in M'nihla, Mr. Ben Kahla told TAP news agency that investigations are underway and that the confidentiality of investigations prevents him from unveiling details.

Findings will be announced as soon as possible, he added.
