Tunisian pundits passed one-year jail sentences


Two Tunisian media figures on Wednesday received one-year sentences for “spreading false news” and “defaming” others after making comments the authorities deemed critical, a court spokesman said.

Broadcaster Borhen Bssais and political commentator Mourad Zeghidi were arrested in mid-May under Decree 54, a 2022 law which critics have said is being used to stifle political dissent.
