Journalist Salah Attia was freed from detention

AI-Index:

Tunisian journalist Salah Attia was freed from detention and reunited with his family last Friday (16 September) after the military court refused the prosecutor’s request to lengthen his prison sentence. While we maintain that Salah should never have been jailed in the first place, we welcome the news.

An Outcome UA, formally closing the action, will be shared soon. In the meantime, feel free to share the good news on social using  suggested tweet below:

#Tunisia: Journalist Salah Attia is finally free after the military appeals court declined on 16 September to lengthen his prison sentence. He never should have been jailed at all, let alone by a military court. Call on authorities to end military prosecutions of civilians.
