Tunisia-United Nations commission accuses *Tunisian state in death of Jilani Daboussi

After a four-year inquiry, the High Commission on Human Rights in Geneva has delivered its decision in the case of Jilani Daboussi, attributing responsibility for his death to the Tunisian State.

The High Commission’s decision outlined numerous breaches and violations of the law in which the Tunisian state was implicated. These ranged from arbitrary arrest and detention, exceeding procedural deadlines, to violence and inhumane treatment inflicted on the late Jilani Dabboussi. Furthermore, the commission confirmed the Tunisian State’s breaches of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

As a reminder, the family of Jilani Dboussi filed a complaint in March 2013 with the Tunisian justice system, alleging violence, torture, and ill-treatment within the prison against the then Minister of Justice, Noureddine Bhiri, the Minister of Health, Abdellatif Makki, and Mondher Ounissi. However, this complaint remained unresolved.

Subsequently, the family lodged another complaint with the Paris court and the United Nations, which investigates state crimes.
