SON-IN-LAW OF OUSTED TUNISIAN PRESIDENT ARRESTED

Muslim World

Tunisia’s justice minister says the son-in-law of the country’s ousted president has been arrested in the Seychelles. Sakhr Materi was stopped while trying to enter the tiny Indian Ocean state with an expired diplomatic passport. Materi, married to a daughter of former President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, was issued with an international arrest warrant over the embezzlement of state funds last year.

Justice Minister Noureddine Bhiri said on 14 December, “the Tunisian government will be seeking his extradition in cooperation with Interpol.” The comments came during a Tunis conference on recovering money embezzled during the 23-year-old leadership of Ben Ali, who was deposed in 2011. In 2011, a Tunisian court convicted Materi in absentia of embezzlement and he was handed out a 16-year prison sentence.
