Bin Salman’s visit to Tunisia, insult to Tunisians: exPM

Algeria, Hamadi alJebali, former Tunisian prime minister on Tuesday described the visit by Saudi crown prince to Tunisia an insult to Tunisian people and their revolution as well as to the values of freedom, justice and human rights.

AlJebali wrote on his Facebook page the visit by Mohamed bin Salman whether on his own will or upon an invitation by the Tunisian government is a stain on the reputation of the Tunisian people and their revolution.

The former Tunisian prime minister added, 'The visit is by no means in the interests of Tunisia. The Tunisians do not seek material benefits, they seek justice and fighting oppression and tyranny.'

Bin Salman violates human values and the latest example of these violations is slaying the Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi and dismembering his body, AlJebali went on to say.

The news of Bin Salman's visit to the North African country has triggered a sharp reaction from all walks of life.

Tunisians consider him the murderer of Yemeni children and the oppressor of intellectuals and have called for cancelation of his visit to their country.

In an open letter to Beji Caid Essebsi the president of Tunisia, the Tunisian journalist's union on Friday strongly condemned the visit of Saudi crown prince to Tunisia, describing him as an enemy of freedom of speech and a threat to regional peace and security in the region and around the world.
