Ghannouchi in court over ‘money laundering’

Rached Ghannouchi, who also heads the Ennahdha party that dominated Tunisian politics for a decade until mid-2021, was previously questioned on the case in July.

Other Ennahdha members are also facing prosecution over suspect transactions with Instalingo, a digital content production firm, which Tunisian media accuse of running defamation campaigns against state officials.

The company has been under investigation since last year for allegedly “plotting against state security” and inciting violence.

As he arrived at court in the coastal city of Sousse on Thursday, Ghannouchi told journalists that the case is “trumped-up and aimed at distracting the Tunisian people from the real problems we’re facing.
