Owen Tudor, ITUC Deputy General Secretary, said: “This expulsion is a blatant interference in the legitimate activities of trade unionists who are exercising their freedom of association rights under international law.
“It will do further damage to the international reputation of Kais Saied’s regime at a time when the country needs international support due to the failure of his policies.
“We call on him to release Anis Kaabi, respect fundamental rights, including trade union freedoms, and replace his autocratic approach with one that respects the Tunisian people and their democratic rights. The problems of Tunisia today can only be resolved through democracy, dialogue, cooperation and negotiation with the unions.”
