Tunisian judge sentences opposition leader Ghannouchi


A Tunisian judge on May 15th sentenced opposition leader Rached Ghannouchi, a critic of President Kais Saied, to a year in absentia on charges of incitement, his lawyer Monia Bouali said.
Ghannouchi, 81, has been in prison since last April, after police arrested him from his home on suspicion of plotting against state security.
Ennahda party leader Ghannouchi decided this month to refuse to appear before the judiciary, rejecting what he said were fabricated political trials.
