Anti-terrorism court freezes Ennahda party leadership’s bank accounts

Islamist leader Rached Ghannouchi and a former prime minister are under investigation. Among them is the leader of the Ennahda party, Rached Ghannouchi, along with several members of his family.

The charges against Ennahda leaders stem from the alleged involvement of 33 Islamist politicians, including Ghannouchi and Jebali, in the assassination of two socialist MPs in 2013, during Marzouki’s presidency and Jebali’s government.

Chokri Belaïd and Mohamed Brahmi, two politicians highly critical of the Islamist Ennahda current, were shot dead as they left their homes.
