The ICJ’s Centre for the Independence of Judges and Lawyers issued a report on Tunisia in which it concluded that the Government of Tunisia violates national and international standards on the independence of the judiciary.
The report also describes the prosecution of human rights lawyers, the Council of the Bar Association, and NGOs. Several recommendations were made to the Government to ameliorate the present situation.
The report serves to highlight certain situations and give an overall appreciation of ICJ endeavors to address some of the problems suffered by members of the legal profession and human rights defenders in Tunisia.
