Tunis, — The decision to close the two radio stations "Ennour" and "Al Insan" was made in co-ordination with the High Independent Authority of Audio-visual Communication (HAICA), as it is a constitutional authority, according to a communiqué of the Presidency of the Republic issued Sunday.

The same source says that it received, Saturday, copies of warnings from HAICA sent to the non authorised Radio Station "Ennour".

According to the same communiqué, the Prime Ministry seeks to ensure the respect of the HAICA regulatory role and the principle of freedom of information.

The same source adds that the decision to close mosques which are not under the authority of the Religious Affairs Ministry and those which witnessed celebrations after the killing of soldiers in the Chaambi terrorist attack, does not aim, by no means, to restrict the freedom of worship. These mosques will be open again after making the necessary procedures of their regularisation.
