Tunisia: Saied Says Fighting Corruption Not Slogan but Prosecuting Corrupt Regardless of Positions

Tunis/Tunisia — Fighting corruption "is not brandishing slogans or delivering speeches" but rather "standing firm on principles and prosecuting the corrupt regardless of the positions they hold," President of the Republic Kaïs Saïed as he met Friday in Carthage with President of the Tunisian Confederation of Industry, Trade and Handicrafts (French: UTICA) Samir Majoul.

The President also said he is aware of the challenges facing industry, trade and handicrafts given the absence of legislation that responds to their demands. This takes its toll on these sectors as well as on State resources, the Presidency said in a press release.

The political situation was also discussed.
