Rashid Ghannouchi … The end of the “Brotherhood of Tunisia” leader is approaching

The Brotherhood organization in Tunisia, led by Rached Ghannouchi, has fallen into a state of great panic after being summoned by the investigating authorities on a charge of terrorism.

Observers believe the end is near for the Tunisian Brotherhood leader, Rashid Ghannouchi, a man in his eighties who began in his youth as a terrorist to be held accountable for political crimes he committed over 60 years, as he appeared in a state of panic for fear of arrest.

The state of panic controlled by Rashid Ghannouchi and his gang has prompted the so-called “Rescue” Front of the Brotherhood, led by Naguib Chebbi, to hold an emergency press conference on Monday in a desperate attempt to deceive internal and external public . considers that the issues pursued by Ghannouchi, members of his family and leaders of his organization are “political issues and have nothing to do with the Nama Association case.”

Chebbi, who failed to acquit Ghannouchi because the Tunisian authorities had conclusive evidence of the Brotherhood leader’s practice of terrorism, tried to sympathize with the general chief that “Ghannouchi told him he would be arrested next Tuesday, July 19th. would be, as a result of the Namaa Charitable Association case. ”

This fear, according to experts, is due to the fact that Ghannouchi was sure that the file of the secret financial apparatus, the “Namaa case,” is the subject of the complaint lodged by the defense committee of Chokri Belaid and Mohamed Brahmi, which is accompanied by serious evidence condemning the Brotherhood leader and his terrorist organization.

Ghannouchi has already received a notice from the judicial authorities to question him as an accused in the case related to the suspected financing of the “Namaa” charity, together with more than 30 other Broederbond members, and to July 19 to appear for investigation.

Ghannouchi faces three cases, including the suspicion of money laundering and assault on the security of the Tunisian state, in addition to the file of political assassinations.

The Tunisian authorities have begun investigating the case following a complaint lodged by the Defense Committee of the leaders Chokri Belaid and the nationalist Mohamed Brahmi, who was assassinated in 2013.

In an interview, Reda Al-Radawi, a member of the defense team for Chokri Belaid and Mohamed Brahmi, said that the association was founded in 2011 under the name “Tunisia Development” and its goal was to encourage foreign investment, and it was implicated in deportation crimes (the deportation of Tunisian youth to fight in conflict zones and wars), and preliminary investigations were soon opened. investigation was stopped.

Al-Radawi explained that the association used “investment incentive” as a cover for it, while “its internal role was to manage the file of the deportation of young people to terrorist hatcheries in exchange for amounts of money transferred to its bank accounts. . “

He pointed out that “one of the accused parties is a person named Najeh Hajj Latif, who runs the business of Rashid Ghannouchi, and one of his hidden arms, and he was an agent for a company active on the territory of “textiles” in Tunisia, and this company is originally British and was expelled from it, but during his management of the company he was The second company’s electronic account is used to manage suspicious administrative and financial matters with the Ennahda movement. ”

Observers from the Tunisian political scene believe the moment of accountability for Ghannouchi has arrived, especially after the recent files were opened, confirming his commission of these crimes.

Hassan Al-Tamimi, a Tunisian activist and political analyst, commented that the suspicion of the relationship between Ghannouchi and a number of Brotherhood leaders, on charges related to terrorism and money laundering, had previously been revealed by the investigations of the Tunisian prosecutor and the defense body for the left-wing leaders Chokri Belaid and the nationalist Mohamed Brahmi who were assassinated in 2013.

An interview with “Al-Ain News” explained that the defense team handed over a file and evidence of the conviction of Ghannouchi and his gang to the Tunisian court after his involvement in the case of the “Namaa Tounes” association, which was established in 2011 and is involved in matters of deportation to hotspots of tension Investigations into that association which obtained funds from abroad. ”

He added that the authorities, with evidence, revealed the presence of a person named “Najh Hajj Tayyib” who was assigned to manage the financial procedures for the benefit of the Ennahda movement and its leader Rashid Ghannouchi, and notes that “Hajj Tayeb used two financial procedures. accounts in Qatar, the amounts he put in them exceeded from 15 to 20 million dollars, The Ennahda movement withdrew these amounts in cash, and they were imported into Tunisia by Tunis-Carthage Airport.

He added, “Accounting Ghannouchi is a message to all who have committed crimes against the country and its people, and to those who have tampered with Tunisia’s security and safety over the past ten years.”

He stressed that “Al-Ghannouchi’s fears and dismay over the possibility of his arrest next Tuesday in the case of the Brotherhood’s secret financial apparatus proved the state of panic and confusion experienced by the Brotherhood and its pawns in Tunisia.”

In turn, Moncef Azzouz, a political activist, said the Ennahda movement had been able to expand its influence in Tunisia over the past ten years through two secret agencies, the first a secret financial agency, and the second a secret military intelligence. -agency.

In an interview with “Ain News” he confirmed that “the Ennahda movement hid behind suspicious associations and organizations and used them as sources of funding for it, which means that funds from the Broederbond organization were taken abroad by these associations. pumped to Tunisia and transferred to Ghannouchi and his party, “explaining:” This is the money The masses who moved within Tunisia without accountability or supervision. “

It is noteworthy that the case of Ennahda’s secret apparatus has erupted since October 2018, when the defense team unveiled the Brahmi and Belaid assassination file, the existence of documents and evidence that Ennahda owns a secret security apparatus in parallel with the Tunisian agencies , which was involved in the assassination of opponents, espionage and burglary of institutions The country, as well as the prosecution of opponents of the Brotherhood, but the Tunisian judiciary has not yet resolved this issue.

And last Tuesday, the Tunisian judiciary froze the bank accounts of the head of the Brotherhood’s Ennahda movement, Rashid Ghannouchi, and two of his family.

The Tunisian Committee for Financial Analysis (governments) has authorized Tunisian banks and the National Post Office (governments) to freeze the funds of the head of the Brotherhood’s Ennahda movement, Rashid Ghannouchi, his son Moaz and his son-in-law, Rafik Abdel Salam. .
