Tunisians Protest Against Law That Seeks To Pardon Corruption

Hundreds of Tunisians are protesting against a law that proposes granting amnesty to people accused of corruption. If the so-called economic reconciliation bill is passed, those accused of corruption will not be prosecuted, but will instead be ordered to pay a fine and reimburse embezzled funds. Tunisian NGOs, civil society groups and international organisations have denounced the draft legislation, warning that it could intensify corruption.
