Tunisian police arrest another union official


Tunisian police arrested an official in the powerful UGTT union on suspicion of insulting a minister, a union official said on March 16th, the second such recent detention in an escalating confrontation between the labour body and President Kais Saied.

The UGTT has lately been at the forefront of protests against Saied, who seized wide-ranging powers in 2021 and has been cracking down on political opponents.
