Judiciary and classification of the Brotherhood
Tunisian political analyst Nizar Al-Jledi believes that the judicial file will be one of the most important files on the top priorities of the new government, whether with regard to purging judicial institutions of Brotherhood intrusions, or accusations related to the movement’s policy, which may prompt the government to declare it a “terrorist organization”, like other countries in the region. .
Al-Jalidi told “Sky News Arabia” that the issue of political assassinations, especially with regard to the killing of opposition politicians, Belaid and Brahmi, comes at the forefront of the accusations against Ennahda, noting that “all the accusation evidence proves the involvement of the movement’s secret apparatus in these facts.”
On the other hand, Jalidi points to “the involvement of the Ennahda movement in manipulating judicial institutions and trying to penetrate and exploit them during its rule of the country, and deliberately concealing about 60,000 files related to issues of political assassinations and the secret apparatus of the organization, as it is the most dangerous armed cells that practice violence in the country.”
Information released by the Tunisian investigative authorities during the past years outlines the nature of the work of the Brotherhood’s secret service, which includes an intelligence apparatus within the state, consisting of 21,000 elements who have been integrated into the Tunisian administration under the general legislative amnesty law, and they have taken a position in sensitive positions similar to the data integration interest of the National Media Center. Which is at the heart of the country’s electoral system.
In 2019, the Tunisian prosecutor announced the opening of an investigation into information that the Ennahda movement possessed a secret security apparatus parallel to the state, and accused this apparatus of being involved in the assassination of Belaid and Brahmi.
The former Tunisian Minister of Interior, Lotfi Ben Jeddo, admitted that the Brotherhood’s Ennahda movement possesses listening devices that exceed the capabilities of the army and security in the country, and they are equipment in the form of bags capable of capturing 4,000 calls at the same time, and they are usually transported on board closed cars.
Political and financial corruption
Observers of political affairs in Tunisia believe that opening the files of systematic political and financial corruption during the past years will put Ennahda before a judicial confrontation to hold it accountable for all the crimes it was implicated in during its years of rule, and its political work in general.
According to Tunisian political analyst Belhassan Yahyaoui, the problem with the Ennahda movement is “loyalty”, because it works for the agenda of the global organization of the Brotherhood and not according to a national agenda, and its literature is completely absent from the concept of the state and the values of patriotism.
In an interview with “Sky News Arabia”, Yahyaoui said that “the Ennahda movement entered Tunisia a dangerous and new phase and caused an unprecedented political crisis,” noting that “what were called charities inside the country and received huge funds under the charitable cover, are in fact They were corridors for training and arming extremist and terrorist elements, and they fed terrorist groups in the world, and this is one of the things that made Tunisia witness for the first time the assassination of symbols of national political action.
