Tunisia approves anti-terror law

Tunis, July 25 (BNA): The Tunisian parliament has adopted a new law to combat terrorism and money-laundering. The new legislation, which was passed by 174 votes, was opposed by ten MPs but there were no abstentions.

The president of the parliament, Mohamed Ennaceur, described the passing of the "law against terrorism and money laundering" as a "historic moment" and "landmark achievement".

He hailed the spirit of consensus which reigned between various blocs which make up the parliament, paving the way for the new legislation to be passed.

The new legislation will now be referred to the constitutional monitoring authority to be scrutinized prior to its ratification by the Tunisian President.
