State of Emergency lifted


President Moncef Marzouki has issued a decree which lifts the state of emergency which has been in place since the 2011 uprising against former president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. The decree came into effect on Wednesday, March 5, 2014.

The Agence Tunis Afrique Presse, in its report states that “The lifting of the state of emergency does not limit the capacity of the security forces to enforce the law and does not preclude any request for military support should it be needed, the statement reads” and goes on to say that “The decision will not bring about changes in the enforcement of law and policies in force in the country, including those concerning military operation areas and border buffer zones”.
