Tunisia: Four Years On, Injustice Prevails

(Tunis) – Tunisian efforts to ensure accountability for unlawful killings committed during the uprising four years ago were blighted by legal and investigative problems and failed to deliver justice for the victims, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. Apart from the life sentence imposed on former President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, who remains abroad, a lengthy process before military courts resulted in lenient sentences or acquittals for those accused of causing the deaths of protesters.

December saw a significant deterioration of the security situation – compared to the previous month – in nine countries or conflict situations in the world, including in South Asia (Pakistan and India), and East Africa (South Sudan and Kenya). There is a risk of increased violence in the coming month in Sudan, where major offensives are anticipated on the heels of a failure in the peace talks; in Sri Lanka, in the context of the 8 January elections; and in Haiti, where the current president could rule by decree unless parliament's mandate, due to expire on 12 January, is extended.

But here on the fourth floor of this hostel for mostly African refugees and asylum seekers, although the men's basic needs are taken care of, there's a sense of life in limbo.

Tunisians voted in the runoff of the country's first free presidential election on Sunday, after authorities urged a big turnout to consolidate democracy following a chaotic four-year transition.

Anti-Islamist Nidaa Tounes party chief Beji Caid Essebsi, 88, quickly claimed victory over incumbent Moncef Marzouki, whose camp dismissed the claim as unfounded.

After polls closed at 1700 GMT, Essebsi's campaign manager Mohsen Marzouk said early indicators signalled an Essebsi victory, without elaborating.
