Tunisia: Leaked Document On Brahmi's Assassination - Police Monitoring Service to Make Internal Investigation

Tunis — Following news reported by some media and social networks about the leak of an internal administrative document of a possible involvement of some security members in the assassination of the late opposition leader Mohamed Brahmi since they disregarded the threat to kill him, the interior ministry published a statement on Friday, saying that the interior minister had entrusted the police monitoring service with making an internal investigation into the killing of Brahmi to determine the possible failures and improve the work of the security forces in protecting the integrity of the country and citizens.

Interior Minister Lotfi Ben Jeddou had confirmed that the leaked document in question had been "sent by foreign intelligence services" on july 14, that is ten days before Brahmi was killed, and that he had not been notified in due time through the usual ministry services.
