On Wednesday, the Tunisian judiciary opened an investigation into 3 files related to the suspected conflict of interest that had been suspended by the former prime minister Ilyas FakhfakhWhich led to the extension of the indictment to 21 people, who are being investigated.
The spokesperson for the Court of First Instance in Tunis, Deputy Prosecutor of the Republic, Mohsen El-Daly, stated that the economic and financial judicial pole decided to open an investigative study in 3 files related to the suspicion of conflict of interest that was associated with former Prime Minister Elias Fakhfakh, considering the existence of 3 deals related to the original file.
Al-Dali told the “Tunisia Africa” news agency, “The first investigation file was opened against the former Prime Minister, Elias Fakhfakh, and everyone who will be exposed by the search for the purpose of deliberately presenting a false statement by concealing the truth of his and his peer gains and not assigning others to dispose of shares, stocks and illicit enrichment.
Regarding the second investigative file, Al-Daly said that it “includes 10 defendants, including Al-Fakhfakh, and it is related to the exploitation of a public official whose capacity is to extract benefit for himself or for others, harm the administration, and accept a public official of benefits and gifts to grant others a privilege that he has no right to, in addition to a public employee practicing activity in return for a fee without a license.”
Al-Daly added that “the third investigation file concerns 13 defendants, including Al-Fakhfakh, for the same charges stipulated in the second investigation file on the meaning of articles 96 and 87 bis of the penal code.”
And according to what the judicial source revealed, the cases filed against Al-Fakhfakh will drag 21 people before the courts.
The National Anti-Corruption Commission had announced the existence of a suspicion of a conflict of interest with former Prime Minister Elias Fakhfakh, because he owns shares in a company that deals with the state commercially, which is prohibited by Chapter 20 of the law relating to the authorization of gains and interests and combating illicit enrichment and conflict of interests. This prompted Fakhfakh to announce that he voluntarily abandoned his contributions to the company after accusing him of conflict of interest, before he later submitted his resignation to the President of the Republic on July 15.
