Tunisia: Draft Law On Compensation of Security Forces

Bardo — The National Constituent Assembly (NCA) adopted on Wednesday the draft law providing for the compensation of the security forces staff, victims of occupational accidents or diseases.

The draft law, which includes 43 articles and 9 chapters, has collected 90 votes without opposition or abstention.

This new law is meant to help the families of security forces martyrs receive a financial compensation with retroactive effect as of March 1, 2011.

It will also repair any occupational disability, from 5 %, with retroactive effect, for cases who were not yet settled.

Besides, this new law comes to determine the rights of the interior security forces personnel, in case of professional disability or diseases and set the modalities for repairing in case of partial or permanent professional disability or in case of death.

The opposition deputies, who had suspended their participation in the NCA works, took part in Wednesday's plenary session.
