EXCLUSIVE: Kais Saied reveals what happened to 10 years of international aids to Tunisia
The President of the Tunisian Republic, Kais Saied, said that financial donations provided by several countries to help Tunisia over the past decade have been stolen by some officials and transferred to their accounts abroad. During a meeting held yesterday, Friday, with officials of the Tunisian Professional Association of Banks and Financial Institutions, the President highlighted that “those who participated in the looting of the state speak through the media of National Salvation, while we should save the country. Tunisia from the latter “.
In recent weeks, social media had revealed a document of a donation from the state of Qatar of several hundred million dollars, which has mysteriously disappeared. Tunisian public opinion accuses the President of the frozen parliament, Rachid Ghannouchi, leader of the Islamist party Ennahdha, of having plundered their resources in ten years, leaving young people as the last hope to leave everything and illegally embark towards the European coast.
Earlier this week, the President of the Tunisian Republic extended the exceptional measures involving the suspension of parliament and the parliamentary immunity of its members after having fired Prime Minister Hicham Mechichi, who has not yet been replaced.
“The return is at dawn, and people are definitely out of breath. He is looking forward to the dividends of 25 July 2021”. Jawhar Chatty writes, indicating that “the presidential raids have frightened speculators who have since become much better organized. The Tunisian intellectual reveals that “the worm is in the fruit and its ramifications are deep. In the school supplies department of some designated supermarkets, prices are out of reach for the average Tunisian. Banks are unlikely to grant more consumer credit. They can no longer do it under the pretext that they are already granting loans to the state budget and that they are impatient to see the state honor its commitments”.
Finally, Chatty notes that the banks have not responded to the solemn presidential appeal to lower interest rates. “They still turn a deaf ear.” Jawhar Chatty said, adding that the Muslim Brotherhood machine “Ennahdha and its ramifications here and elsewhere are running at full speed,” urging the President of the Republic to act now before the wind turns.
“Back to school is tomorrow. At one time, the price of a school notebook was much lower than that of a kilo of potatoes, which was also very low. At the time, we were particularly attached to developing people, to cultivating well-made heads rather than full heads. Education was the real spearhead of an entire social project. The paper sector was a state monopoly”. He concluded.
